Review: Starring Role (Gin & Jazz #4) by Morticia Knight

This is book four in the Gin & Jazz series.

Alone once again, Jack believes that he will never have lasting love. But a tragedy unexpectedly paves the way to more happiness than he would ever have thought possible.

No longer held prisoner by Roman Pasquale’s obsessive love, Jack struggles with being truly alone for the first time in his life. The only thing he is certain of is his desire to get away from Hollywood as soon as possible. But first, he has to make sure that his loyal driver Juan is provided for, and understands that the two of them can never be together. Then, once he finishes his latest film he will finally be free of the town of broken dreams.

Right as Jack feels that his future is looking brighter, a terrible tragedy occurs. But out of his despair a new hope is born. Jack is given a second chance—one he never would have thought possible. As Jack’s blissful new life unfolds with his lover by his side, an unexpected visitor from the past threatens his new-found peace.

It’s time for Jack to make his final choice.

Well, that was worth it. All the angst, heartache and tears was worth it.

Jack is alone. Again! But this time, I can say I was genuinely happy about it. After leaving that controlling jerk, Roman, he was able to find people he should let into his life and are worth his time. I loved seeing Jack come into his own, on his own. There wasn't anybody there guiding him any certain way, he made his own decisions for himself. It's about time!

It wasn't an easy road for Jack to get himself back on track. He had some bumps along the way. Some very sad and hard to read bumps. I was (surprisingly) emotional over some of the obstacles he had to go through. But, these events did bring back the most important person in his life. Again, it's about time!

Although their coming together was predictable, and I could see how it was going to happen pretty early on in the book, it was still like a huge sigh of relief when The Reunion finally happened. Nick was back, but Jack wasn't going to make it too easy on him. Good! Remember, Jack has been through some shite and doesn't put up with shite any longer. Good! But when they did... oh, when they did. It was so beautiful. I wanted Nick to suffer, but I was glad when his suffering ended. I was just as ready for his bossy tendencies to shine through in the bedroom as Jack was. They are just so effing hot together. Good god.

All throughout this series I've loved how real and believable the characters are and I still felt that way in this final book. The emotions were real, the struggles were real and the HEA was real.

A four book series, and all are four stars from me. Definitely worth a shot.
