Prince of the Playhouse (Love in Laguna #3) by Tara Lain

Driven by his desire to become a successful fashion designer and concerned with hiding his questionable past, Ru Maitland lets his obsession with action movie star Gray Anson on the big screen replace his social life. Then obsession and reality collide when Ru is asked to design fashion costumes for a special performance of Hamlet at the Playhouse in Laguna starring none other than Gray Anson. Gray turns out to be a compelling mix of shy and brash and, despite a high profile engagement to a female socialite, the signals Gray sends Ru have his libido doing the salsa.

Gray Anson has what most people only dream of—great wealth, huge fame, a job he loves. For that, he’s given up any semblance of privacy and the right to say no to the thousands of people who depend on him and the millions who love him. He sees everything he’s ever wanted just outside the bubble of his life, but how can he make the compromises needed to embrace it? When Ru’s shady past crashes into Gray’s paparazzi-haunted present, both men have to learn that sometimes the only acceptable compromise is the truth.

My review:
Prince of the Playhouse is a fantastic addition to the Love in Laguna series. Love and secrets don’t mix.  Gray Anson is a big time action movie star who is so far in the closet he could be paying rent in Narnia. Ru Maitland flamboyant gay designer has secrets of his own. When these two get together the earth moves. These two are made for each other if their secrets don’t kill their relationship before it can begin. I love Ru. He may not be as over the top as Shaz but he is no shrinking violet either. And Gray is a confused stud. He knows he is gay but his job hasn’t made it easy for him to come out of the closet. He really hasn’t had a reason to until he falls into the catlike eyes of our Ru. Watching these two go through trials and tribulations to get to their happily ever after was at times frustrating but oh so worth it in the end. I am looking forward to the next installment in this terrific series.
