Pride Publishing Presents


When long-time theatrical enemies are cast as lovers, their late-night rehearsal brings a whole new meaning to method acting. For twenty years, Adam Fisher and Thomas Fox have been the best of enemies. From their first meeting at drama school to shared stages, shared bills and a competition to amass the most illustrious awards, they have been the names on every theatregoers’ lips. Separately they can sell out an entire run in an hour, so when they’re cast as lovers in London’s hottest new play, the tickets are gone in minutes. But for rakish Adam and gentlemanly Thomas, the small matter of their first on-stage kiss is causing a headache for everyone. Over a bottle of wine on one rainy night in the city, these two acting legends will do whatever it takes to banish their first-night nerves. After all, as everyone knows, the show must go on!


 This is a fun, short story! I love the enemies-to-lovers trope and this one is very well done, especially for a short story.
Thomas, (do not call me Tom), and Adam are rival actors, both popular in their own right. Someone had the bright idea to pair them together in a play, a romantic play – one where they have to share a kiss!
The story is humourous and sweet. The way the 2 men get together was delightful; I especially liked the way they let it happen naturally, without doubt or angst. I loved it!
