Review! The Callback (LoveBehindtheScenes #1) Brandy L. Rivers!

The Callback (Love Behind the Scenes Book 1) - Brandy L. Rivers



Actors are always waiting for the callback.

Leona Shay isn’t looking for love. Having just gone through a divorce from her high school sweetheart, her world is in upheaval. And things are about to get even crazier after selling the movie rights to her series.

Rising movie star, Luke Chance, could have anyone he wants, but he wants an author who may not be ready for him or anything that comes with being with him.

Luke wants a role in the movie. Leona can’t see him as the lead, not that she has a say in the cast. Their first encounter may be rocky, but he’s not going to let her slip away.

Trust doesn’t come easy for Leona. Tabloids and distance may send her running. How far is Luke willing to chase?




The Callback is the first book in Brandy L. Rivers’ Love Behind the Scenes series and is a great read that readers can easily become caught up in from the very beginning. Leona Shay is an author whose personal life is turmoil so she is certainly not looking to fall for anyone much less a rising movie star. Luke Chase can have anybody he wants but he wants the author who isn’t ready for him or anything that comes with him. The characters are strong and easily connected to with some sizzling chemistry between them that readers easily pick up on during this sweet romance full of hot and steamy passion and rocky heartfelt turmoil that keeps the readers in suspense throughout the story wondering if this couple can possibly work things out and reach for the happily ever after, especially as trust doesn’t come easy for Leona.


The plot moves smoothly with a steady pace that keeps readers glued to the pages as Luke tries to win Leona’s heart, but then disaster strikes due to an overzealous and determined former hook up and things really become intense and emotional which had me tearing up a bit. The author made it easy for each and every scene to be pictured as the reader follows the couples journey to their happily ever after with well written words and well developed characters that are realistic, so it is not surprising that I became emotionally invested in their romance.


I am huge fan of Brandy L. Rivers paranormal Others universe, but this is the first contemporary romance that I have read by her and I have to say that I was quite pleased that I enjoyed reading The Callback as much as I enjoy reading about the Others so I can’t wait to read The Long Shot which is due to be released later this month.

I've always loved books, especially about monsters and magic, so I started writing. I'm working on a prequel and the next few books in the Others of Edenton series, and I have a head full of stories to share.
