Review ~ His Leading Lady by Jean Joachim

How does a rookie quarterback react when faced with the truth about his leading lady? Is his play for her a touchdown or only a false start? A chance meeting with gorgeous actress, Penny Thatcher, has Mark Davis smitten. Luck breaks his way weeks later when he meets her on a blind date. After an all-out blitz to win her affections, the public revelation of an ugly secret intercepts his forward progress. Will Mark get tackled by the humiliation? Is he in the game to win or will he walk away from her, chalking it up to a fumble on the goal line?

*Prequel to Hollywood Hearts series

Two people, hero Mark and heroine Penny, both struggling to make a name for themselves in their respectable careers... and Ms Joachim captures their emotions, connection and handling of past incidents as they all come to head.

Blind date? You may be asking why two up and coming public figures need to go on a blind date. Well, without giving away too much- I despise spoilers- you MUST read His Leading Lady. The quality of writing displayed by Ms Joachim is such a refreshing occurrence. The strong plot, deep character connection and tremendous writing flow of the story line is unbelievable. I have read Ms Joachim's work in the past... but His Leading Lady surpasses all others by her.

Needless to say I am anxious to begin the entire series now. Wonderful job Ms Joachim.

P.S. I LOVE the arrogant and demanding way Joachim presented hero Mark Davis. If I could have crawled into the pages of the book... oh man!
