Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Adult & contemporary romance, Humour

In life, Leo's the best friend, never the leading man, but now he's in the spotlight and all eyes are on him. A masterful new comedy from Justin Myers, author of The Fake-Up, The Magnificent Sons and The Last Romeo.


'Hugely entertaining' VERONICA HENRY

'Snappy, sharp, perceptive, and brim-full of wit and heart' JULIE COHEN

'Ferociously funny' DAISY BUCHANAN

Leo's content to be in the background, letting his louder, more charismatic best friends shine. For a thirty-something gay people pleaser it's always been safer that way.

But, suddenly, a gorgeous love interest from the past steps out of the wings, Leo's pushed to his limits by his overenthusiastic new boss and - strangest of all - he begins to question whether the friends he loves so dearly have been holding him back.

For the first time ever, the spotlight is on Leo. But a spotlight reveals everything. And now all the things Leo has hidden away in darkness are in full focus. If he's to get everything he's ever wanted, Leo will need to face his past, and the future, head on. But he might not like everything he sees.
