I ve been anticipating this one you guys Been waitin I sooo loved Off Stage Right and Off Stage In the Wings when I read them a few years ago So when I saw Jaime Samms was releasing another book in this series I was pretty pumped I was initially worried that I would regret not having reread the first two books it having been so long since I d read them but Samms does a good job of filling in any blanks and allowing the reader to pick right back up with the charactersWhere the first two books focused on Firefly front men DamianTrevor and Lenny Off Stage Beyond the Footlights centers on Kilmer Hennessey who we met in the second book Kilmer is Vance Ashcroft s best friend and ranch manager He also happens to be Vance s ex sub and is now also good friends with Lenny Kilmer has been with Jacko for four years now and things between them are so far from okay Kilmer doesn t know what to do Jacko has been pulling away from him for months staying out late not telling Kilmer where he is completely shutting him out But as Jacko is his Dom Kilmer believes it s not his place to uestion him and has just been sitting by hoping things will get better Well they don t get better In fact one night things come to an explosive head when Kilmer comes home to walk in on Jacko fucking another guy and ends up getting pulled into the scene which results in Kilmer basically safe wording and walking out on JackoThat opening scene is incredibly intense if a bit tough to read and definitely sets the scene for how horrible things have gotten between Kilmer and Jacko and how lost and broken Kilmer is It s a difficult and painful realization to come to but Kilmer finally admits to himself that Jacko only saw him as his sub Not a lover or a boyfriend or a partner Hell they weren t really even friends And they spent four years together sigh I felt so terrible for Kilmer throughout much of the story He s so so lost And Jacko is such a dick I wanted to taint punch him basically until like ninety percent of the way through the bookKilmer of course heads to Vance s ranch after he leaves Jacko where he gets some much needed comfort from Vance and Len I loved loved that scene They cared for him and showed him he was loved It was just really sweet But Vance pretty uickly lays it down for Kilmer letting him know he needs to deal with fixing up his house reclaiming his space so that he can begin the process of healing and moving on Thus begins a tiny pity party a visit to the local pub and a small period of excessive drinking BUT at the bar he meets Tanner Jones singer of new local band Down Home and they start talking Kilmer is obviously hurting and Tanner feels an immediate need to care for him I loved this lineIt was the need to mend the wound fix the break and heal the hurt embedded in Tanner s DNA that moved him It awakened strongly every time Kilmer looked into his eyesIt turns out that Tanner is also a contractor so Kilmer hires him to help him with the house renovations and soon neither can ignore the spark that begins to ignite between themI immediately adored Tanner He was kind strong and hot as hell The first kiss between him and Kilmer was so freaking sexy But Tanner recognizes that Kilmer has a lot of work to do before they can even think about starting something serious so they put the brakes on a bit so Kil can really explore what happened with Jacko and how they both got to that placeThis book was almost as much about Kilmer and Jacko as it was about Kilmer and Tanner The damage done to Kilmer s self worth and independence over the course of the four years with his ex Dom and what he needed to do in order to begin to heal and get himself back was really the crux of the book I would have loved to see of Tanner and Kilmer together there was some time spent together that was alluded to that I would have liked to see of on the page but Kilmer s journey was so important and I did love the way the author let it play out Kilmer s relationship with Vance and with Len was fantastic I so love their friendship and how much Vance clearly cares deeply for Kilmer And Protective Vance when he first met Tanner was pricelessTwo things uickly before I wrap upAs the end of the blurb suggests music plays a huge role in the story which was awesome I love how much music meant to everyone and how cathartic Kilmer found it to start playing again There were a couple of amazing live music scenes in the book that were so vibrant and well written LOVED So good Also and I can t believe it took me so long to mention it I loved everything with the dog When you read the book you ll understand but Jacko leaves his dog behind for Kilmer to take care of and it turns out to be a huge part of Kilmer s healing I just completely loved everything about how Jaime Samms wrote the dog into the storyThis was a very nice addition to the series There was even to love than what I was able to mention If you re a fan of the first two books you will absolutely not want to miss this one If you haven t started the series yet do itttttReviewed by Jules for The Novel Approach
