Author: Shannyn Schroeder
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, New Adult
Release Date: December 22nd, 2015
Published By: Lyrical Press


Free Mitchell loves the theater. In his dreams he’s the one taking the spotlight.But so far he’s played against character by following in his father’s footsteps as an investment banker. When he’s masquerading as Dr. Who or Sherlock Holmes to help his brother, he feels he can escape his shy, dorky persona. But nothing’s prepared him to play boyfriend to a gorgeous girl like Samantha Wolf.

Samantha isn’t quite sure what to think of Free. He’s cute, sweet, and quirky, but his outlandish costumes make him seem crazy. However, it turns out Sam has a soft spot for theater nerds. And the more time they spend together, the more their steamy romance begins to take center stage. Only problem is, there doesn’t seem to be a script. And it’s anyone’s guess how this one will end.

His Dream Role is the 6th book in Shannyn Schroeder’s Hot & Nerdy series. It has a great plot, fun characters, and is a nice, easy read. There is no cliffhanger here, folks, and you will have an HEA at the end. The story is told from a third person point of view between the main two characters. It can be read as a standalone.

Now let me hop onto Free and Sam. These two were just fun and for me this book took a different turn than the 4th and 5th book in this series did. Free is an actor who dresses up in costumes to draw attention away from his brother. It is sweet, but it also shows so much personality on his part. The problem is, while playing all these roles, he’s never sure if a girl will like him for who he actually is. Sam, on the other hand, is one of those characters you just like. That is the best way I know to put it. She’s fun, she’s caring and kind-hearted. She reads like she has an old soul too, while still being young.

These two are not without their struggles however, and assumptions or omitting things unintentionally can throw a wrench in the works. The chemistry between them is different in this book. It isn’t what I would call instant. In fact, at first I thought to myself, he likes this girl, but he seems to zip off within five minutes of talking to her every time. I came to like and understand that. The chemistry definitely has a slow build but when it goes off, it really goes off.

I’m sad to see this is the last of the Hot & Nerdy series! I actually hope there will be more because the topics and different plot lines make for fun and interesting reads. You really got to sort of jump into Free’s acting here, as well as what Same does for her job. (Yes, I’m being vague, no spoilers!)

I would most definitely suggest you pick His Dream Role up and give it a go. It is a sweet story that will stick with you.
