Feature book: Revue
Revue by KM Golland
Corrine Lee loves photography. She usually does nature photos but she is now going to photograph another of nature’s beauties—the male form. Since her brother got hurt, she has to photograph the male strippers of Revue. Corrine knows the shots she wants to take but wants nothing to do with any of the strippers but just to do her job. When she gets up close and personal with Josh after a misunderstanding, sparks fly but not necessarily the sexy ones, the ones that want to kill or maim. Corrine gets to know Josh during the tour and the sex is off the charts but will it survive?
Josh Adams loves the spotlight and knows how to work a crowd. He is the headline act for the male stripper group, Revue. He has girls throwing themselves at him during and after every show. When he sees someone photographing the show, he snaps and breaks her camera without asking questions. He soon discovers the photographer is going on tour with them and she is not what he was expecting. As usual he stuffs up and his attitude sucks because he doesn’t know how to handle Corrine or what he is feeling.
This story has the typical Australian humour that KM Golland is known to write. The love and angst between Corrine and Josh is palpable and you can feel it in the writing. This story could happen at any show like this, and that’s what makes it real and honest. The visions Ms Golland gives make you see all the moves that are made on stage and makes you want to be in the audience and participate. Great book to start a new series with great characters.
