Marc Phillips runs the projection booth for an old fashion neighborhood theatre. He doesn’t work there because of the ambiance, but purely for the comfort, the theatre gives him. Sam Merit interrupts Marc’s normally boring existence the day they meet. Sam is trying to cope with his recent change in employment, or rather his new status of unemployed. The trips to the theatre are good to fill the void and supply a healthy dose of eye candy while he checks out Marc.

They discover a connection that surpasses what either expected, but Marc’s past is looming over their new bond like a black cloud. Can Sam gain Marc’s trust or is the relationship doomed before it has begun?

Play it Again, Sam is a book about acceptance, new beginning, and learning to take risks. Sam needed the gentle distraction of Marc in his life. While the stress of being unemployed was lurking on the edge, the fun and smiles Marc supplies helped the situation become less taxing. Marc’s baggage was serious. Watching his apprehension told me there was more than meets the eye to the bear of a man. They have fantastic chemistry, and their passion moves from softly sensual to fiercely demanding. I enjoyed reading Play it Again, Sam and recommend it to those who read the genre.
