See my review at Sinfully.4 Stars Prince of the Playhouse is the latest book in Tara Lain s contemporary MM romance series entitled Love in Laguna We finally get Ru s story, a character that has appeared in this series While this book does feature a character that has been in the background in this series, you can definitely read this book as a stand alone This was definitely a sweet and fun read with a side of squishy goodness From the first page I was hooked and wanted to see just how things w [...]

I have waited for Ru s story since the beginningBook one of this series was Shaz and Billy s story but it also introduced us to Ru Maitland designer extraordinaire and best friend to Shaz So you know he s going to be over the top and he was.ghtfully so for me.One of the best things about this story was that everything was pretty much over the top and I not only expected it to be I wanted it that way The author has given me an over the top MC in the person of Ru so if he s over the top and bigger [...]

2.5 Stars Not a bad book, but I found the near constant talk of boners incredibly irritating and the ending WAY too over the top for my personal tastes.

3.5 stars When I started reading Prince of the Playhouse, I loved the set up A fashion designer madly in love with an action hero actor, who just happens to be stretching his artistic wings by doing a week in the role of Hamlet at the Laguna Playhouse There are hints that Gray Anson may not be all he is cracked up to be, while there are a few tantalizing glimpses into Ru s background he does seem to know his way around a knifeBut as the book progressed, I found the story just didn t do it for me [...]

3 Hearts Audiobook reviewThis book was better than I was expecting Celebrities are a pretty tricky sub genre to make work, especially ones where the main character isn t able doesn t want to come out After hearing a few other people s opinions on the book, I thought all the expected drama was handled much better than I was expecting, however it definitely wasn t one of the best celebrity stories I ve read.First let me touch on the narration, as this is meant to be an audiobook review P K.C Kelly [...]

Sometimes Tara Lain s books work for me and sometimes they don t because of something in the tone that makes me not like the leads or trust the love story The love seems rushed and shallow here so this one didn t work for me.

Overall book rating 3.8Audio Book K.C Kelly Narrator 4Book Cover 3.5A little on the drawn out side with Grey and his situation But understanding all and all Not my favourite of the series but a good read.

3.25 starsI ve been looking forward to Ru s story ever since I first met him, because I have a certain weakness for flaming, artistic types and Ru is definitely that One thing I can say with 100% certainty is that Ru didn t disappoint at all The other main character, Gray Anson, is who I had big problems with his behavior was disappointing and infuriating, and I wanted someone else for Ru because Ru deserved better than being someone s dirty little secret.The writing was great, I can t complain [...]

The Queen of Love Dreams Tara Lain reigned majestically in this her latest offering, she waved her sceptre and produced magic magical reading This was so special and I loved every word.She gave us, her loyal reading subjects, everything that we could possibly want Ru Maitland, fashion, sex, gangland culture, Shazam and Shaz, a Hollywood idol, Hamlet yep, I said Hamlet and drama, drama, drama Gray Anson is an A lister Hollywood movie star, he has the looks, the money, the trophy girlfriend and is [...]

3.9 StarsWow, that was packed full of some OTT action there at the end I mean, I know we re teased with hints about Ru s gang background but I didn t expect it to explode that like, in the public eye, when we already have such an angsty, down low actor hiding his sexuality plot.BUT I did love Gray s parents his mom is one of those characters that you expect to be a stereotype and she so very, very much is notd that s a welcome relief Sometimes you just want a mom that really does love unconditio [...]

I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads4 highly anticipated stars I ve been on the lookout for Prince of the Playhouse since I finished Knave of Broken Hearts, and was ecstatic to be offered the opportunity to review Prince of the Playhouse didn t disappoint instead of devouring it, I savored it over the course of several days We finally get Laguna s resident fashion designer s story We readers thought we knew Ru Maitland, but we hadn t even scratched the surface Ru w [...]


The Novel Approach Reviews

Listen, guys this review is a tough one to write If I were to focus only on the things I liked about this book, my assessment would be woefully short While there were a handful of positives, the issues I had with the story almost entirely eclipsed the things that did work for me So even though it s difficult, as always, I m gonna give it to you straight.I loved Ru in Knight of Ocean Avenue, the first of the Love in Laguna books He was charming and fiercely loyal as Shaz s best friend, and I was [...]


Dutchgirl

This is the third book in the Laguna serie, and i loved it.It has everything you want, the romance between Ru and Gray is the main focus but the crime story in this book is great and definitely kept me on the edge of my seat Ru is an up and coming fashion designer and he has a bit of a dark past but he has left that past behing him or so he thinks , he also has a big crush on the biggest action movie star Gray Anson When Ru is asked to design the clothes for a Hamlet performance he meets his lon [...]

This series is my favorite of Tara Lain s I always look forward to a new book in this series Prince of the Playhouse is outstanding Ru is so much than he seems just by looking at him and it turns out Gray Anson is too These are two men hiding from the things that made them Both running from something and while they are running the crash into each other and fall in love There s some mystery to this tale of star crossed lovers Both have to come to terms with their own pasts and realities and just [...]


Jodi Ciorciari-marinich

This is another great story from Tara Love her stories and her writing style This one is book 3 in her Laguana series It is Ru s story Loved it Ru is a great character , he had a hard life but rose above it and is trying to become a fashion designer Enter his ultimate crush Gray , a famous and as far as Ru knows straight action hero Grey isnt as straight as everyone thinks these two men thru some trails come together and some funny and tension filed moments fall in love Grey has to come to terms [...]


Nerea

I m sorry, but this book is a NO for me When you already assume that is a bit surreal you get another big nonsense in the plot so rolleyes again and again.Ru is a cute character, except that really hard obsession for an actor but Gray Mmm, I think is very difficult to like him Is a billionaire closeted actor and when he founds the love instalove alert he ask him to be his dirty secret yeah while he continues dating women that he didn t like As I say not my cup of tea


Leaundra

I really liked Gray and so glad that him and Ru finally got it right.


Justin Nova

3.5 Loved Ru but I never really warmed up to Gray It was much much better overall than the second book of the series, however.

2.5 starsI can t say I really enjoyed this book, nor that I particularly hated it I had trouble feeling the MCs relationship Seems like the only explanation we got for how they insta fell in love was I m not sure how, I m not sure when, but it happened , and I wasn t feeling the chemistry at all Consequentially I was just mildly annoyed and at times slightly bored by the drama and the lying and the angst.


Alexis Woods

Love this series I read this slightly out of order 4 before 3 but other than knowing they sure a sure deal didn t affect my enjoyment.


Rick

I love this series Period Not a foot wrong by Tara Lain.I look forward to Happy Reading


Brandee Price

4.5 Stars Prince of the Playhouse may be my favorite of this series so far I ve always been fond of Ru and getting to know his backstory was enlightening Watching him get his manexciting Those two things mixed with a hunky action movie hero, some suspense, and Shakespeare made for an excellent read I first met Ru in Knight of Ocean Avenue His creativity was apparent as was his love and loyalty towards his friends But we didn t get a deeper understanding until now where it s obvious Ru s habit of [...]


MorganSkye

Loved this so much This is book three in the series Love in Laguna and I highly recommend reading all three in order to really appreciate this book though technically it can be read as a standalone.Ru is Shaz BFF and assistant Now that Shaz is moving up in the world, Ru is taking his turn to really shine his own light.Ru has never been shy about his willingness and desire for sex without strings but he s not a player In fact, he s of a homebody than anything else.He s had a terrible crush on ac [...]


Emily Seelye

I think Ms Lain is a mistress of the pen She knows how to inject just enough drama and angst into her stories without weighing them down Here, you have two men with secrets Both have potential to damage their careers, but Ru s could go even further and ruin his life Gray confesses his secret to Ru, but Ru is scared to admit his Unfortunately, his comes out in the worst way Exposed by a dirty cop Fortunately, Gray ends up being supportive and the men come out even stronger in the end I just loved [...]


Calila

I loved this Ru was a great, I loved how sure of himself he was I even liked how he stood up for himself and didn t want to be a dirty little secret , even if he caved At the same time I liked Gray, and you really get why he is stuck in the place he s stuck in But dude, grow a pair I think there were a lot of characters, that maybe weren t all needed I could ve done without the whole Ru s past aspect, it didn t really add conflict or real angst I think I d like to see Merle and Bernardo get a bo [...]


Raj

I have never struggled to complete a book as much as I have found myself doing with this one.Ru one of the main characters simply confounded me.I m unsure whether he was a thug pretending to be an over the top fem or a fem masquerading as a thug.Instead of staying strong true to one character at times he switched between them to suit his needs.I found neither personas compelling the story lacked the depth complexity to make it pop for me.

Lexxie (un)Conventional Bookviews

This review was originally posted on un Conventional BookviewsPrince of the Playhouse exceeded all my expectations, even if they were extremely high I loved Ru from the first time I met him, and seeing him unfold his wings and soar was beautiful One of the things I love about Tara Lain s novels is that even if there are homophobes in the world, there is always one or two people close to the main characters who love them no matter what Prince of the Playhouse was a wonderful tale, and I enjoyed m [...]


Susan

The Audiobook I can t do it I did actually make it about half way, but I can t keep listening the narrator, K.C Kelly is fine in terms of skill but from the start I wasn t crazy about his voice for this book and especially Ru I ve been looking forward to Ru s book since meeting him in Knight and this is decreasing my enjoyment I read Knight and Knave, haven t read Prince and this is my first audiobook from this series and narrator I m uneasy when narrators do lispy voices for gay charachters, un [...]


Jane (PS)

Whilst completely unrealistic, this 1 blockbuster action star meets queeny fashionista romance is a lot of fun Ru is OTT and out there Gray is full on closeted but dead lonely Throw in the papparazzi, some beards and a play, and of course there s a story Loved the church scene.
