The Rec League - heart shaped chocolate resting on the edge of a very old bookThis Rec League comes from Nancy. Thanks, Nancy!

I just finished reading Don’t Look Down by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. Since I retired I’ve been doing extra work on tv shows that are filmed locally and I really enjoyed that the action of the book happens on a film set. Loved all the details that I’m now actually familiar with. I’d love to have some recommendations of other romances which take place on a film set (not just a story about actors) with the day to day details of what that’s like.

Elyse: Ship Wrecked by Olivia Dade happens on location

Sea Creatures Prefer Redheads

Sarah: Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren – and definitely Ship Wrecked!

If reality tv is an option there are many – Accidentally Engaged, Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake, Recipe for Persuasion.

Lucy Parker’s books take place in and around theatres, but in The Austen Playbook they’re broadcasting a play live with audience voting to determine the scenes.

Battle Royal is a reality show, too

Elyse: The Reunion by Kayla Olson although it didn’t work for me personally

Tara: If TV is okay, then breakingcharacter by Lee Winter is fantastic.

I haven’t read it in a long time, but I remember also liking JustPhysical by Jae, ( A | BN | K | AB ) which takes place on a film set and is a romance between an actor and a stunt person.

Susan: I must not recommend a fifty volume manga series, no matter how much Skip Beat ( A | BN | K ) fits this brief.

sneaky: Jesus! I forgot about Skip Beat!

Daytime Star on Line Webtoon also fits.

What romances would you recommend? Let us know in the comments!
