Release Blitz, Review & Playlist: The Scene Stealer by Renee Harless

Title: The Scene Stealer
Author: Renee Harless
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 26, 2019


Scene Stealer (noun) (scene-steal•er | \ ˈsēn-ˌstē-lər): an actor who attracts attention when another is intended to be the center of attention.

The glow of fame only casts shadows. The name Devyn Dane was once lit up amongst the stars. Everyone worshiped me. But now, I’m on the edge of darkness. No one warned me about the fall. My crash was lethal. These days I’m nothing more than a forgotten child-star with a tainted reputation.

Redemption is what I need. When a chance is handed to me, I vow not to blow it—I can’t. This could launch me back to stardom. But nothing is given freely in Hollywood. Everything comes with a price. This time, mine is a bombshell waitress battling insecurities deep enough to rival even my own.

The resilient Larsen is a mystery I can’t wait to unravel. Her brokenness makes me feel not so alone. But together, we are a complete mess that should never work. I know it, Hollywood knows it, and someone is Hell-bent on making sure we don’t beat the odds.

I truly believed she was my ally. An added boost on my rise back to fame. But the shine of Hollywood masks many things. She broke my focus, pulling me away from the most important goal.

That’s the thing with a scene stealer – you never see them coming.

I really wasn't expecting such an emotional rollercoaster ride when I started this but it's not a bad thing at all. This book is full of so much intensity and I couldn't pull myself away for a moment once I started reading. 

I really loved the plot for this one. I always love stories about two people from two different worlds that fall in love and struggle to make it work because of their differences. I loved that the drawing line for this story was about Hollywood. It was so addicting to read. 

The characters in this were so deep and fleshed out. Devyn and Larsen have both been through the wringer in life and have had to deal with more than the average person. Their strength is so evident in their characters. 

Once they meet their chemistry is undeniable. They are quite a match and their shared scars connect them. 

Overall, I was highly pleased with this story. I fell in love with these damaged characters and my heart went out to them. If you like stories about damaged souls that complete each other then this book is for you. I am looking forward to reading more books from this author!


Author Bio

Renee Harless, her husband, and children live in Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  She studied Communication, specifically Public Relations, at Radford University.

Growing up, Renee always found a way to pursue her creativity. It began by watching endless runs of White Christmas- yes even in the summer – and learning every word and dance from the movie. She could still sing Sister Sister if requested. In high school she joined the show choir and a community theatre group, The Troubadours. After marrying the man of her dreams and moving from her hometown she sought out a different artistic outlet – writing.

To say that Renee is a romance addict would be an understatement. When she isn’t chasing her toddler around the house, working her day job, or writing, she delves head first into a romance novel.
