Alone once again, Jack believes that he will never have lasting love. But a tragedy unexpectedly paves the way to more happiness than he would ever have thought possible.
No longer held prisoner by Roman Pasquale’s obsessive love, Jack struggles with being truly alone for the first time in his life. The only thing he is certain of is his desire to get away from Hollywood as soon as possible. But first, he has to make sure that his loyal driver Juan is provided for, and understands that the two of them can never be together. Then, once he finishes his latest film he will finally be free of the town of broken dreams.
Right as Jack feels that his future is looking brighter, a terrible tragedy occurs. But out of his despair a new hope is born. Jack is given a second chance—one he never would have thought possible. As Jack’s blissful new life unfolds with his lover by his side, an unexpected visitor from the past threatens his new-found peace.
It’s time for Jack to make his final choice.
So, can I get a high-five?! Starring Role by Morticia Knight was everything that I hoped it would be and then some.. Jack has finally found the courage to leave the nefarious clutches of the great Roman Pasquale, and along with driver Juan, the two men left the estate to make their way in Hollywood sans a benefactor. Luckily for Jack, he had accumulated many true and good friends throughout the start of his career who assisted him and Juan.
Starring Role was a wonderfully erotic culmination to the Gin & Jazz series, along with the happily ever after that this reviewer longed for. Throughout the entire series, Ms. Knight captivated my curiosity and tickled my senses as she waded through and wrote of Jack’s relationship woes and life in Hollywood.
Jack’s character grew and matured into a fine young man worthy of stardom and love; to be cherished and made an equal partner is any relationship. His friendship with Juan was a testament to the bonds of friendship the two forged. Even among tragedy, true love was found with a high note of the Gin & Jazz series ending.
As a lover of history, the Gin & Jazz series boasted accurate linguistics and time period scenery. Morticia Knight was a well-researched writer and delivered flawlessly.
I look forward to more books from Ms. Knight as she spins off her series and delves further into the Roaring Twenties under the Hollywood limelight.
