Abducted and forced to channel all his TV character's smarts, can actor Chase Riley escape his captors and return to his boyfriend?
Actor Chase Riley is road tripping his way home when he is abducted. A delusional fan is convinced that Chase is really Elliot, the character he plays in a popular cop series. In order to survive, Chase must channel all his TV character's smarts, while trying to convince his abductor that he really is just a very good actor.
Chase's boyfriend, co-star Aidan Buffett, is on a trip with his sister when he gets news of Chase's disappearance. Trapped in an airport in Mexico trying to get home, Aidan is both terrified he will never see Chase again and tortured with guilt for allowing his lover to travel alone.
When Chase makes a desperate attempt to escape, the consequences are serious. And though Aidan will get to see his Chase again, it is with no guarantee that his boyfriend will survive to tell the tale.

 Not Mistaken Identity by Iyana Jenna seemed like a story already in progress. Like a snippet from the lives of Chase a movie star and Aiden his boyfriend.   Chase is driving home from visiting Aiden’s family and he stops at a diner. He manages to get kidnapped and taken to a shady hotel, where he gets shot.  This story reminded me a little of Misery with how the people that kidnapped Chase kept referring to him as his character and saying they were his greatest fans.
Aiden has always wanted Chase to have more security. But Chase doesn’t want to be a bother.  I think after all this he will have security around him.  I liked how Ms. Jenna made me really feel what her characters were feeling.  I was scared for Chase, and worried for Aiden.   I wanted the happy ending. I just wish there was more of a story with the relationship of Aiden and Chase in it. This story felt like a small piece of their lives and I wanted to know more.  So maybe Ms. Jenna can give us more of these two I know I sure would be in line to read them.
