ARC Review: Star Power by Morticia Knight


Blurb:
They must escape danger before they can have their Hollywood ending.

After a few cinematic bombs lower his box-office appeal, actor Adrien Fury wants Harrison Langford to bring his career back to superstar status. He would also love to learn more about his mysterious and handsome agent, if he could ever get him alone.

Harry has loved Adrien for years but never revealed his feelings. He keeps things professional between them and will do whatever it takes to make sure Adrien gets what he wants. When increasingly disturbing letters show up at his agency, threatening horrible things against the man he loves, Harry vows to protect Adrien at all costs.

Adrien and Harry are on the verge of revealing their true feelings to each other when danger strikes. Maybe they can share a lasting love…if Adrien's stalker doesn’t get to him.


Dani's rating:




Adrien, a famous actor, has wanted his agent, Harrison, for as long as he can remember. Harrison is one of the few people Adrien trusts, but their relationship is strictly professional. Harrison keeps his personal life private, and Adrien doesn't even know if Harrison is gay.

Harrison has been in love with Adrien since their first meeting all those years ago, but Adrien depends on him to manage his career, and for Harrision, Adrien always comes first.

When Adrien begins receiving threatening notes from a stalker, Harrison will do everything in his power to protect the man he loves.

While there's a mystery element central to the plot, the romance holds its own. The mystery is a little muddled and rushed. There is a red herring, a fight at a jazz club (this is Hollywood, after all), and a final confrontation in Harrison's office.




I really liked Harrison. He's the strong and silent type, and Adrien relies on him to make all the decisions. Harrison is a Dom, and there is a scene in the epilogue that involves whipping, but the S/M and D/s elements aren't fleshed out or fully explored.

Since this is a novella (approximately 1,100 locations), there is little relationship development on page. I wanted to know more about these men and the dynamic between them.

The ending is a HEA, although not all loose ends are tied up. Nothing more is said about Adrien's career path, for example. Overall, this is a quick read that held my interest.
