The Scene Stealer by Renee Harless is an Adult Contemporary Romance out now!
*Disclaimer: This book contains mature content and may not be suitable for younger readers.*
“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.”

*Disclaimer: I requested a free copy of this book from Candi Kane PR in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.*
This is my first Hollywood romance, and I gotta say that I liked the change from my normal reading preferences!
We are thrown into these two characters’ lives as they come from two spectrums in the world. An introvert meets the extrovert leading to a great chemistry from chapter one to the end!
I feel like this one is more of a heart-jerker and gives all the feels from the touching dialogue to the emotional plot trends. It’s a story about self-discovery and realizing the life you have displayed in front of you instead of the shine for fame.
You’re cheering them on, and thankfully, we get the ending we thrive for.
I gave this book a higher 4 out of 5 stars.
“Renee Harless is a romance writer with an affinity for wine and a passion for telling a good story.
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 or preschooler around the house, working her day job, or writing, she jumps head first into a romance novel.”
