Stage Left (Bright Lights Billionaire #1) – Ali Parker

Ethan Lewis has been in the bright lights for as long as he can remember. He’s just turned the cusp of celebrating his twenty-fourth birthday, and yet he feels more like eighty. Living the life of a celebrity isn’t all it is chalked up to be, and dealing with the unruly number of women who are more interested in his billions than who he is as a person is getting old. He has resigned himself to giving up on love and focusing on the only thing that truly gives back – his career.

Riley Phillips has always dreamed of being on a big stage with the warmth of the spotlight baring down on her, but she just couldn’t seem to catch the right agent’s attention. After giving a quick commencement speech as Valedictorian of her graduating class at Billmore High, she’s offered something she can’t refuse… The chance to work in Hollywood. It’s not all it’s chalked up to be, but she works hard and finally gets her big break four years down the line. There is a new movie that her agent wants her to audition for, and her co-star? The dreamy Ethan Lewis.

She scores the part, but soon regrets it due to his callous, overbearing persona. He’s nothing like the public touts, and she for one isn’t impressed.


For me, this was a huge flop! To start with this “book” a term I’m using lightly was only 158 pages long, now to me, that’s a short story and so should have been marketed that way! I didn’t realize it was that short til I got to the last page and ran out of story.

I didn’t like Ethan at all. I’m trying to think if he had any redeeming qualities and in all honesty, I don’t think he did, his biggest issue was that is penis was too big! I mean seriously your a billionaire if its that much of an issue go and get it sorted out!

Riley was a little better, I liked that she didn’t take any shit from Ethan but she was a bit naive and not great at communicating what she wanted.

There are more books that follow this one but I won’t be reading them, this one was excruciating enough. The only positive was that it was a free ebook so at least I didn’t waste any monies on it!

My Rating: 1/5
