In this sizzling gay K-pop romance debut from KT Salvo, movie star Jason Park was a Hollywood golden boy. The youngest ever Best Actor award winner for his role in The Moon Shines Madly, the former teen idol was ready to make the jump from teen comedies to dramatic leading roles. But his famously well-documented on-set blow-up cost him his part and drove him from the limelight.

Singer, dancer, and leader of the K-pop supergroup XTC, Woo Tae Hyun was a rising star and K-pop sensation until a rift within his group drove him away from music. Freshly returned from the army, Tae Hyun’s ready to kick-start his solo career. But his label has something else in mind.

When the two stars are brought together for a project neither one wants, their chemistry becomes impossible to ignore. Can they overcome the obstacles of their forbidden romance, or will the pressures of fame tear them apart?


Idol Minds was an engaging gay romance at the steamier end of the content spectrum. Set in the entertainment world, there was plenty of action to keep the story moving along, and Jason and Tae-hyun were both well-written characters. I absolutely bought into the insta-lust between them, but the transition to love perhaps happened a little too quickly to be believable. Still, that didn't stop me from enjoying the story and overall I am giving it four stars. Recommended if you like steamy gay romance and/or K-Pop culture.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
