Praise For Under the Lights: A Daylight Falls Novel…
Josh Chester has a reputation in Hollywood for being the good looking, irresistibly charming bad boy. Vanessa Park is a Korean American actor trying to convince her parents that acting is a legitimate career while also proving to directors that Asian actors can play more than medical students. When Josh and Vanessa meet on the set of a tv show, sparks fly. But, in a welcomed twist, Adler’s follow-up to Behind the Scenes (2014) isn’t about a relationship between Josh and Vanessa; it’s about the ever-more-steamy romance between Vanessa and her agent’s assistant, Brianna. In a sharp narrative alternating between Josh and Vanessa’s points-of-view, Adler tackles important issues, such as race, coming out, and bisexual erasure. This entertaining same-sex romance against the thrilling escapism of a Hollywood backdrop still manages to be thought-provoking, and will certainly please fans of the series opener. Though some characters from the first book make appearances here, this installment can easily stand on its own. Recommend to readers who like their romances a little more thoughtful. — Erin Linsenmeyer- - Booklist
