Like Nobody’s Watching
by Tara Frejas
It’s all fun and games until someone catches feelings.
If there’s something Pio Alvez is good at, it’s pretending to be someone he’s not. On stage and on-screen, the actor has mastered the art of becoming the characters he plays, and his new role should be no different. After all, how difficult would it be to pretend to be smitten with a beautiful, intelligent go-getter like Audrey Alonzo?
Perhaps it’s more difficult pretending not to be..
She was just supposed to be another woman who passed by him one night while he was nursing a bottle of Stella Artois. But Pio Alvez saw the tears running down from her eyes, and two thugs following her. He had to act fast, he had to intervene…. he just had to.
Audrey Alonzo got her heart broken by her boyfriend of 10 years. Moving on from a heartbreak should have been easy, but working with her ex on a daily basis proved it to be quite difficult. Until she met Pio Alvez, again. Could this gorgeous celebrity help her recover from her heartache?
Love love love this dreamboat named Pio Alvez.. Well, actually, I loved the model on the cover of the book first. (Got a crush on this kiddie show host Fred Lo since I met him 3 years ago, shhh!) So it wasn’t difficult to imagine him as Pio Alvez in this romantic love story by Tara Frejas. I’ve heard good reviews about the first book, Waiting in the Wings, which I would love to read sometime soon.
Pio is a guy worth rooting for. Romantic, attentive, caring, understanding, dependable, and most especially, family oriented. I’m all for a guy who loves, prioritizes and respects family above everything else. Because it means that’s how he values other relationships, too. Audrey is lucky to have found a guy like him, who is even willing to pretend as her new boyfriend. Having a loving family is definitely a big bonus too!
Everything about this book fascinates me. The theater life, production, showbiz relations, meeting the parents on a birthday party, those sweet, sensual, sexy nights… Those easy and quirky banters between the characters. And all the feels and wonderful emotions it gave me. Loved Tara Frejas writing, concise, realistic, affectionate and sure made me feel like a teen again.
