Description: Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Pierce has captivated the imagination of women all over the world, but all he really wants is a man of his own. The fact that Ryan is gay has been kept secret, thanks to his hard-working agent, and Ryan reluctantly plays along with the ruse.
One night, Dar Phillips misdials a telephone number, but the guy on the other end of the line sounds sexy and funny so Dar keeps the conversation flowing. The man claims to be working on the upcoming Ryan Pierce film and invites Dar to meet him face-to-face at the movie studio. Dar eagerly agrees, but he's not interested in meeting the film's star, only the "wrong-number guy" whose voice on the telephone so enthralled and excited him.
When the men finally meet, and Dar discovers the true identity of the stranger on the phone, sparks instantly fly...until the paparazzi show up and claim that Dar sold Ryan's secret to the tabloids...

"4 Divas!...A sweet little novella that plays into the fantasy: what if I met my favorite Hollywood movie star and we fell in love? Now of course this book is a M/M romance, so the dynamic of that relationship is different than it would be if characters were a man and a woman because the Hollywood heartthrob is closeted, but in the end that doesn't matter. Ms. Watts expertly built the necessary attraction between the two main protagonists that sold me the story. In spite of this being the first book by Mia Watts I have read, I know it will not be the last since her talent was evident throughout. This reviewer certainly hopes she will visit this universe again."--Lasha, Dark Divas Reviews
Unlike with Brett, there was no stage kiss this time. Ryan smiled at the tentative movement of Dar's mouth beneath his. It was still parted from the gasp and Ryan took full advantage, slipping the tip of his tongue inside.
It had been so long. So long since he'd kissed another man. For the sake of fame it had been worth it. Until now.
Dar tasted like sweet coffee and cream. Ryan tried to duplicate the kiss he'd had with Selene, but with Dar, he couldn't. He needed to taste and feel and explore. Dar leaned heavily against him, his fingers clutching the shoulder of his tee, much the same way Selene had. He wondered if Dar was playing a part, too, or if he actually needed to hold on.
Ryan did. His knees felt weak and his belly fluttered with hot anticipation. He needed air. God, he was so light-headed from such a simple thing as a kiss. Ryan drew back, breaking their kiss, but stayed close enough that their foreheads still touched, their noses still pressed.
Dar's gaze woke slightly, meeting Ryan's. Their quick breaths matched for speed. And in that second Ryan saw awareness.
Dar knew Ryan had enjoyed that kiss. He knew it and it was written all over his face. If he wanted to destroy Ryan, he could. His career would be all over in an instant. Thrown away because Ryan had failed to resist the charm of a man he'd just met.
So why did he want to do it all over again?
