Bluewater Bay Tour – Starstruck Spotlight

BWB_TourBanner

Welcome to Bluewater Bay! This quiet little logging town on Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula has been stagnating for decades, on the verge of ghost town status. Until a television crew moves in to film Wolf’s Landing, a soon-to-be cult hit based on the wildly successful shifter novels penned by local author Hunter Easton.

Wolf’s Landing’s success spawns everything from merchandise to movie talks, and Bluewater Bay explodes into a mecca for fans and tourists alike. The locals still aren’t quite sure what to make of all this—the town is rejuvenated, but at what cost? And the Hollywood-based production crew is out of their element in this small, mossy seaside locale. Needless to say, sparks fly.

This collaborative story world is brought to you by ten award-winning, best-selling LGBTQ romance authors: L.A. WittL.B. GreggZ.A. MaxfieldAleksandr VoinovHeidi BelleauRachel HaimowitzAnne TeninoAmy LaneSE Jakes, and G.B. Gordon. Each contemporary novel stands alone, but all are built around the town and the people of Bluewater Bay and the Wolf’s Landing media empire.

About Starstruck

StarstruckHollywood is full of dirty secrets, but Carter refuses to be Levi’s.

Retired action star Levi Pritchard has made a quiet life for himself in the sleepy logging town of Bluewater Bay, Washington. But then Hollywood comes to film the wildly popular television series Wolf’s Landing, and Bluewater Bay isn’t so sleepy anymore. His retirement doesn’t stick, either, because he’s offered a part on the show—exactly the kind of complex role he’d always wanted, one that would prove him more than a glorified stuntman. The only catch? He has to stay in the closet—no matter how attractive he finds his co-star.

Carter Samuels is the critically-acclaimed male lead on Wolf’s Landing. And now, the man who inspired him to take up acting—and made him realize he’s gay—is joining the cast, and sparks fly between them instantly. But Carter is out and proud and determined to stay true to himself.

Remaining just friends is the only thing to do, as both the studio and Levi’s disapproving, dysfunctional family keep reminding them. Except their friendship deepens by the day, tempting them with what they can’t have but both desperately need.

About L.A. Witt.

L.A. Witt is an author of gay erotic romances, and has been recently exiled from Okinawa, Japan, to Omaha, Nebraska. She resides there with her husband, a telekinetic goldfish, and two incredibly spoiled cats. It’s unclear if the exile was the result of the mostly classified “Aquarium Incident,” or if she’s actually being hidden, for her protection, from the Polynesian Mafia and her arch nemesis, erotic romance author Lauren Gallagher.

Should you encounter Lauren, don’t tell her L.A. is in Omaha. This bio will self-destruct in 17 seconds.

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1As far as series introductions go, Starstruck did an excellent job. Bluewater Bay was Levi’s ticket to escape Hollywood, but a popular paranormal TV show changed all that. The only thing that could possibly change his mind about going back to acting was being dangled in front of him. His family was slowly piecing themselves back together and ‘coming-out’ wasn’t an option.

Carter was in awe of Levi. He had admired the man for years and had heard the rumors about him. He was okay being friends. They had a lot in common, but there was also a strong attraction between the two of them he couldn’t ignore.

These two guys just about broke me. They grew to care for and respect each other in a few short weeks. I wanted them to be together, but I couldn’t see how it was going to work out any more than they could. This wasn’t an ‘instant attraction’ story. These men had admired each other from a distance for years.  The title actually applied to them both. Once they met and spent time together the attraction grew. I loved the way this story played out – even when it wasn’t going the way I wanted it to, or expected. Levi did a lot of soul searching and at the end…. well, you’ll just have to read it for yourself to find out.

The supporting characters were great too, especially Anne. Link and Zelda weren’t just pets written in as filler either. I loved them just as much as Carter and Levi and I’m not even a cat person. 😉 There were a couple of notable characters that I disliked from the beginning, but I was in good company because no one else really liked them either – including the cats.

So yeah, Carter and Levi were the perfect couple to start the Bluewater Bay series.  I’m kind of hoping that readers see more of them. This is another series that will be written by several different authors. There’s Something About Ari, by L.B. Gregg is next.
