Just a note for the unresolved threads about the produced and the lack of knowledge about Zach's past, this book is a PREQUEL to a series of books that were already written (Action, Cutaway, That's a Wrap), so a lot of what happens in this story has to conform to what was written about in those three books. All the seemingly loose ends are dealt with in the first book, Action, which takes place a few years after this prequel. The Dom/Sub relationship is more developed there as well.
Ms. Borino wrote this because her fans wanted to know how the characters first met. When Zach's past is revealed, Steve taking care of Zach when he was sick, Zach being inexperienced, and his alcohol use and swearing, are all part of the history readers of the series would already know. Anyhow, I like the whole series and am eagerly awaiting the fourth book. It is rewarding to watch their relationship develop and change over time.
I am giving this one 4 stars, but I give the whole series a 5.
