Nic Starr

Nic Starr lives in Australia where she tries to squeeze as much into her busy life as possible. Balancing the demands of a corporate career with raising a family and writing can be challenging but she wouldn’t give it up for the world.

Always a reader, the lure of m/m romance was strong and she devoured hundreds of wonderful m/m romance books before eventually realising she had some stories of her own that needed to be told!

When not writing or reading, she loves to spend time with her family–an understanding husband and two beautiful daughters–and is often found indulging in her love of cooking and planning her dream home in the country.

Appearing Nightly - Cat Grant This book is the sequel to The First Real Thing. Cameron has bought Icon (a bar) and is running it with Mike who also provides the stage show as Diva Michelle. I don't usually overly enjoy characters in drag but Mike is a wonderful character. The story centres around his relationship with Ryan, a young man with a troubled past. Ryan appeared in the first book, working as a male escort alongside Cameron, but his past is kept from Mike. Ryan is a very different character than he appeared in the first book, clearly impacted by events from that book. He is frightened and not trusting and unsure of his sexuality.The only element of the book I found annoying was when Ryan brought his ex-girlfriend and now friend, Alexa, to Cameron's thanksgiving dinner so she wouldn't be alone. I understand that this was the wrong thing to do as it hurt Mike but Cameron also indicated it was a 'mistake' because it was a party of his gay friends.
