Luna Roth has recently realized something about herself that has eluded her for many years: she’s bisexual. After coming out to her best friends — her former boyfriend Wyatt and her nonbinary roommate Romy — Luna feels ready to embrace her bisexuality and find a romantic relationship. She also would love the opportunity to leave her terrible job with her horrible boss Alice — who eventually fires her — but she knows that if she just sticks it out a little longer, she’ll be able to start making some moves in her dream industry as a cinematographer.
When Luna has the opportunity to advance her career and work with producer/actor Valeria Sullivan, she knows she has to take advantage of it. It doesn’t hurt that Valeria is beautiful, seems into Luna, and is possibly gay. As Luna tries to navigate both the professional and personal, her life and dreams become more and more complicated. It doesn’t help that Luna has never really been with someone romantically, and remains confused about her own feelings for Valeria. What’s more, something is off in her friendship with Romy, which she’s always counted on to be rock-solid.
Empathetic and generous, Sizzle Reel introduces characters with depth and heart, and shows that coming out is a process, not a one-time event. The challenges of starting a career, finding love, and following a dream will resonate with readers.
