Publisher's Summary

Simone Oliver prides herself on being a realist and a cynic. A brilliant set designer for a Manhattan theater company, she thrives in the background and is perfectly comfortable in jeans, Chuck Taylors, and a paint-smeared T-shirt. That is, until Zach Hammond, the award-winning (and sexy-as-hell) British director, turns the spotlight on her. He's clearly captivated by her and won't take no for an answer - but Simone is determined to maintain her position that love's not worth the risk.
A hopeless romantic who can quote Shakespeare on a whim, Zach has spent his life center stage, surrounded by world-famous actors and royalty. But nothing he's seen can compare to what Simone can create. Before long, he finds himself as mesmerized by her brash beauty as he is by her work, and he's determined to seduce her stubborn heart.
But while the two may have been successful at relegating romance to the wings in New York, when their production moves to a centuries-old Irish castle in County Clare, there may be just enough magic to give true love the curtain call it deserves.

Great, other than the weird attempt at a British accent

I picked this up via Kindle Unlimited after Strom's "Almost Like Love." It isn't a sequel, but picks up with a different couple where the other leaves off. I enjoyed the character development, the romance, the background of theater and Shakespeare, and the story as a whole. It's light and occasionally predictable, but it isn't one-dimensional, either. We come to understand Simone through her deepest fears and losses as well as her joys and wit.

My only complaint was with the narrator's awkward attempt at Zach's British accent. She pulls off a great Irish accent when the time comes, but I couldn't get over the stiffness of the way she voiced Zach. It wasn't quite irritating enough to switch to the text version, and once I got used to it I didn't mind too much - it's just difficult to be enamored with him when he sounds so silly.

Cute quick read, would have liked steamier love scenes though. Wrapped up pretty quickly but I expected that.
