Damon Atwood was Hollywood’s golden boy. Having won an Oscar at the tender age of thirteen, he had the life many could only dream about. But his success came at a price, and after a short but fruitful film career, he chose to live a life of obscurity on a remote Scottish island. Thirteen years later he’s finally ready to make his return, starting with a lead role in a musical on London’s West End.
As a choreographer’s assistant, Rose Taylor has always faded into the background. She watches shows come to life from the side lines, but has never craved the attention of stardom. When rumours begin circulating of Damon’s involvement in her latest gig, she doesn’t predict how she will be thrust into the limelight, nor how the mysterious and strangely introverted man will need her to teach him how to be a star again.
Rose knows that show crushes don’t last. Actors fall for each other during the intensity of a production, often losing themselves in their roles. These kinds of affairs burn bright and then they fade. The question is, should Rose let herself shine with Damon, or guard her heart from being broken after the final curtain call?
His hand slipped beneath the cup of my bra, palming my breast fully and I pulled free from the kiss to bury my face in the crook of his neck. This was all too much, and I was so turned on I was just about ready to have sex with him here on the floor of this damp old shed.
His lips sought mine again as he flicked my nipple with his thumb. I gasped into his mouth, his tongue sliding leisurely along mine.
“Rose,” he groaned, still palming my breast. “I could fuck you right now.”
God. I shivered at his dirty words and the way he said my name. Moving my hips, I felt his erection press firm and hard between my legs. I couldn’t tell how much time passed, and I wanted him to fuck me I was that desperate for him, even out here in the middle of the woods with our colleagues nearby.
I arched my spine and his cock moved against me in the just the right spot that I cried out in pleasure. Damon broke away from the kiss, his breathing erratic as he struggled to restrain himself. My feet hit the damp floor and I tried to calm down a little. He’d been right to break the kiss. We’d barely even discussed what was going on between us, and diving right into forest sex was probably a bad idea.
Silently, he moved his hands over my clothes, fixing everything back into place. My cheeks burned bright red and I trembled when his fingers brushed my collarbone. His mouth curved into an almost smile that very near did me in. “So reactive,” he murmured.
“That’s what happens when you kiss a girl to within an inch of her life then leave her hanging,” I griped.
His eyes flicked to mine, so dark and brown I could’ve gotten lost in them. And then something truly wondrous happened. Damon smiled at me, a full, beautifully masculine smile that made my knees weak.
“You’re smiling at me,” I breathed.
He quirked an eyebrow. “And?”
“And stop it, you can’t just never smile and then suddenly lob one on me. It’s disconcerting.”
He chuckled in response and I groaned. “Now you’re laughing. Gah! Are you trying to kill me? Do you realise your laugh is the sexiest sound on earth, only surpassed by the noises you make when you kiss me?”
His smile started to fade, only to be replaced with a look of such fierce desire I swore a bucket of ice water wouldn’t be enough to cool me down. I cleared my throat and tried not to spontaneously orgasm. “We should head back. Everybody will be wondering where we’ve been.”

Ahhhh, she’s done it again – Showmance is AMAZING. L.H. Cosway wrote a beautiful romance, filled with exceptional characters and it made my heart swoon. I was completely captivated by Rose and Damon’s story.
Within the pages of Showmance, the author sets the stage for romance, drama and healing. Essentially, Rose and Damon’s worlds collide at work and their relationship develops with undeniable lust simmering right below the surface. Because this a love story where neither character trusts in love so they settle for something they can accept – friendship – even though there is so much more between them.
The end result felt incredibly real and raw. The love developing between the two main characters is fragile and my heart ached for Rose and Damon. I was devouring page after page, desperate for the moment they would finally act out on how they were feeling and to have faith that what they had was real.
It was addictive and exciting. I loved being able to dig deep inside the minds of both Damon and Rose – I got to feel the story from both sides. I was consumed by their passion and love as well as their insecurities and jealousy. I wanted them to work everything out and to find happiness. It’s a journey that gives you all the feels which in my opinion makes it a must read romance.
I highly recommend you read, Showmance today.
