Two Broadway actresses, one starring role, and a kiss that might turn rivals…into lovers.

Sophie Rindell has dreamed of performing on Broadway since she was a little girl. But after more than ten years of auditioning, she’s still waiting tables and sleeping on a friend’s couch while she waits for her big break. When she lands an audition for a new musical called It’s in Her Kiss, she’s sure this is the one. Not only is she auditioning for the lead, but it’s a queer role, the role of a lifetime for Sophie.

Julia Vega has been working on Broadway for years now, but she hasn’t landed a starring role…yet. When she meets Sophie at the audition for It’s in Her Kiss, she senses a kindred spirit. They’re both talented and driven, but unlike Sophie, who’s been out since high school, Jules is still coming to terms with her sexuality. This role—if she lands it—could help define more than her career.

As their rivalry heats up, Jules and Sophie fight an attraction that blazes hotter than the spotlight. When the curtain rises on opening night, love might take center stage.


Sweet temptation holds all the cards! With book two in her Midnight in Manhattan series Rachel Lacey brings a familiar face to life as Jules takes center stage. Fans of the first book in the series will recognize Jules who adopted kittens from Josie in that book. This book will be a particular draw to fans of Broadway because the story line delves deeply into the production lifestyle. It wasn’t my favorite book from this author, but it was steadily paced and entertaining.

Jules Vega drove me nuts. She’s trying to reach her dreams on stage at the same time that she’s on the verge of accepting her newly realized bisexual lifestyle, but she’s burying her head in the sand so hard that she’s about to let life pass her by. I could sympathize with her fear and anxiety … it just felt like she was being unfair to Sophie too much for my liking.

Sophie Rindell is confident in her self, her talent and her attraction to Jules. She has been living openly as a lesbian for more years than she can count, and has been burned in the past by indecisive partners.

I recommend this book to fans of Broadway and lesbian romance who enjoy an emotional roller coaster on the way towards that HEA.
