Script by RJ Scott & V.L. Locey

L.A. Storm #1. Script. RJ Scott & V.L. Locey.

Hollywood A-lister Finn might be Canadian, but he needs Cameron to show him how to hockey.

Actor Finn Kerrigan is at a crossroads. After growing up a soap star, then starring in a hugely successful trilogy of action movies, he's finally given the chance to read a heartfelt and passionate script that could change his life forever. The role would be enough for people to see him as a serious actor, and maybe even win him an award or two (and no, a golden raspberry award for his action movies doesn't count). Once established as a serious actor he’s sure he can come out of the closet and finally live his truth. When he lies to get the part of a hockey player on a struggling team, he suddenly has nowhere to hide. He might be Canadian, but the last time he skated he was ten, and no, he doesn't have hockey in his blood. With only a month until filming starts, he about to be exposed, but partnered with a player who’s supposed to be giving him tips, he doesn’t realize how many of his secrets will come to light. Falling in lust, one heated kiss at a time, is inevitable, but giving Cameron up at the end of the shoot could break his heart.

Cameron Chavkin is the face of the L.A. Storm. And the body, and the hair, and the smile. He’s at the prime of his career, men and women want to be with him, and he’s skating better than he ever has before. His house sits next to a famous rock star's mansion, his garage is filled with expensive cars, and he’s even been asked to mentor a once-famous actor in a new hockey movie. Life is pretty sweet. Until the bad boy of hockey meets Finn, a man on the edge with more secrets than Cameron has endorsements. Knowing better than to get involved, Cameron is swept up despite himself, and when it's time to say goodbye to the Storm’s most eligible bachelor is finding it hard to follow the script.

This excerpt is unedited.

“But you’re Canadian.” Atlas stared at me in shock. “Wait, Vancouver is in Canada, right?” My agent pulled out his cell phone as if he were going to check where in the world my hometown was.

I stopped him. “I am, and it is.” Where did he think it was? South of LA?

His shock turned into bewilderment, and he pinched the bridge of his nose. He’d been my agent since the early days when I was a child actor in a soap and was an uncle-type figure who’d watched me grow up. It was him who’d gotten me a lead in the low-budget Rapid Action from Byrnes-Rose studios, which, after becoming a surprise hit, had spawned two sequels, Rapid Start, and Rapid Recall, and made me a lot of money. And him. In all that time I’d never seen him so confused in all that time.

He had a raft of clients, and was used to having things dumped in his lap, but it seemed I’d finally done something way beyond his understanding.

“But you want to read for the lead in a hockey movie.”

“Uh huh.”

“And you can’t skate.”

I closed two of my fingers together. “A little. I skated when I was younger, but then… acting. I mean, I can stay upright. Or at least I could when I was ten.”

“But don’t all Canadians do the hockey thing? From birth? I mean, I’ve seen videos of teeny tiny Canadian babies skating around with those penguin trainer things.”

I sighed. “Not every Canadian is into hockey, just like not every American is into football.”

Atlas inhaled sharply. “Blasphemy!” And for a moment he waved in front of him as if he were making the sign of a cross—I’d insulted him and the rest of the U.S. in some way. I enjoyed watching football highlights—mostly because of the men in tight pants—but being picked up to star in a soap at ten meant my formative years had been all about the role, the marketing, being a public figure, and not anything to do with funny-shaped balls.

Or pucks.

My life had always been way too filled with other things for me to get into sports.

Unless you counted me getting into Roscoe Lewinsky, the tight end for the LA something or other, because I got into him, and he was tight and just as much in the closet as me.

I snorted a laugh, and Atlas stared at me with a comic-book open mouth and wide eyes, as if I’d lost my damn mind and wasn’t paying attention to his meltdown at all.

He pointed at my chest, turning a dark shade of red. “You told me… you said you could do this…”

“No,” I began with exaggerated patience. “What I said, when I was drunk, I hasten to add, is that as a Canadian it’s my civic duty to be the star of the next Grierson blockbuster featuring the great sport of hockey. That is what I said.”




Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Script is the first book in the L.A. Storm series.

Cameron Chavkin is the face of the L.A. Storm. He may be known as the heart of the team, and women and men would both kill for a night with him. When Finn Kerrigan sits down next to him and asks him to teach him to skate for a movie. Cameron is caught off guard with how attractive Finn is but can't find a way to say no to the man. Cameron is instantly protective of Finn and wants to go out of his way to help him.

Actor Finn Kerrigan has so many secrets and he's so tired of hiding. When a role completely different than he's used to comes up, he knows he has to take it even if he can't ice skate. He eventually wants to come out, but he doesn't think he can as an action hero. But finding a character with more depth will allow his fans to see he's more than just that one character. And asking the sexy hockey player for help on the ice may not be the best idea to keep all his secrets hidden.

I love the start of this new series. I adored the relationship between Cam and Finn. They were so sweet. Cam was so patient with Finn with his anxiety over his ADHD, he was everything that Finn needed. They were so adorable and the chemistry was instant between them.

I can't wait for what's next!

This is the first book in a new series by the talented duo of Scott and Locey – and fans of their works will recognise some old friends popping up in conversation, and possibly on the ice!

L.A. Storm have just lost their chance at the Stanley Cup and Cam is both furious and disappointed – so when an actor asks him to teach him to skate and learn about the world of the NHL for a film role, he is not really interested. Their relationship is definitely rather shaky to begin with, however, with time and pushing Finn's buttons, Cam finds the man behind the character is rather delicious.

This is a great mix of the crazy of the NHL and of Hollywood drama. Finn and Cam are both good people, but Finn in particular has to learn how to trust – himself and others – and discovers how a 'normal' family life can mean a degree of crazy, but also wonderful connections.

I am already looking forward to the next installment!
