Tarnished Glitter by Morticia Knight

Jack and Roman’s love grows seemingly stronger as Jack’s star rises, and he is determined to build a life with the sexually overwhelming screen idol. But hiding from the truth doesn’t make it any less real.

Jack has given himself completely to screen god Roman Pasquale – body and heart. Jack forces himself to let go of the promise of what could have been with Nick, and focus on the enchanted moments with his film star lover instead, despite Roman’s jealous and controlling behaviour.

Roman’s paranoia and fear about losing the much younger Jack threatens to destroy the only real happiness Roman has ever had. Jack is a wonder and a gift to him, yet he can’t seem to just accept their charmed life together – he is determined to make Jack into the perfect partner. He believes that constant sexual attention, lavish gifts, and declarations of love will ensure that Jack never has a reason to leave him.

The pressures of being on the silver screen and being the lover of a demanding movie idol is difficult for the sensitive young man to handle, and Roman’s increasingly erratic behaviour only adds to his stress. Unwanted attention from other men and a startling revelation from movie star Trixie Fox add to Jack’s confusion. All he’s ever wanted was true love, so how can he give up on Roman and the star’s promises of forever?

This book really got to me on a few different levels.  Even after reading it, I’m not really sure what about it affected me so greatly, but after reading the other books in the series; I do believe that this one is my favorite.
We got to follow along as Jack and Roman’s relationship progressed even further than before. They get completely wrapped up in each other, and were having to learn how to deal with the separations that they were faced with due to them both working. In this book, Roman’s jerkfacedness (yes I made up that word because he deserves his own word for how he was!) really comes out. It was really difficult to like him throughout most of the book, but even while I couldn’t stand how he was acting I felt horrible for him because of what he was facing.
Jack’s character great a lot in this book, but it wasn’t really until the end that that happened. So it was a bit annoying in the beginning because I just wanted to smack him upside the head. There were a lot of things happening with Jack during the course of the story, and he had to deal with it all while trying to deal with Roman’s possessiveness.
Overall, I still don’t know what it was about this book that affected me so much, but I really can’t recommend it enough!
