From the outside, Hank Blue seems to have the perfect life. With a successful Hollywood acting career, millions of adoring fans and starlets trying to gain access to his bed and heart, you would think he had everything. However, on the inside, Hank is dying a slow agonizing death from denying himself what he truly desires. The trouble is if Hollywood finds out he’s gay, Hank could lose his career.

Wayne Reed watches his fellow actor from afar and wants him with a passion. Even though he knows he should stay clear of Hank, the attraction is too overwhelming. The opportunity of a lifetime presents itself and allows Wayne to introduce Hank to both of his personas, up close and personal. Will Hank prefer the mild mannered actor or his true identity and alter ego Drake the vampire?

Sex Scene: Take One takes place far away from the prying eyes of Hollywood’s gossip mill. I could understand the attraction Drake and Hank shared. Both men are handsome and gentle on the eyes, if not on your heart rate. Both have had years to become acclimated with the struggles of staying off the radar, for two very different reasons. However, when they get together they sizzle. The opening scene definitely grabbed my attention. There isn’t room left to focus on anything but the characters and their chance to enjoy what they have denied themselves. The tidy ending reminded me of what some real life Hollywood stars have done to keep their personal lives out of the media. I found the tale interesting and look forward to reading more of Lee Avalone’s stories in the near future.
