I’m not amazed easily, I guess you could say I take a jaded look at things. This book amazed me though, usually with a book that has only 49 pages I usually feel at a loss for something, whether it be plot building, character development or the feeling that I am getting rushed through the book. I felt fulfilled.
This book is a little different, we have a quasi established couple. Which means they are seeing each other and hooking up but haven’t committed. (I’ll get back to this in a minute). If you read the blurb you know what happens and what spins the story. The blurb sold me and is why I bought the book, money well spent.
Ashley spirals in a sludge of self loathing and despair after the accident but Will is always there. Ashley pushes for Will to leave as he sees himself not worthy of affection anymore. Here is where the author really lays in on the angst and let me tell you, it is delicious to read. As the reader my emotions are a little all over the place. I’m rooting for Will to get through to Ashley and at the same time I’m so sad for what Ashley has gone through and what he is putting himself through. The story needed Ashley and Will to have an established relationship without being committed to pull off this romantic drama. Before I forget to mention it, Ashley and Will are so HOT, their sexual scenes were very erotic. Yay me for getting to read about it.
I highly recommend you read this book, it’s angsty, it’s sexy, it makes you cheer and it’s just a good book.
People often say that the true perfection of the human form is in its imperfections.
Obviously those people never lived a life of a model. Perfection is flawless. Desired. Demanded. Superstar model Ashley is living the dream. As one of the top models in the world, anything he desires is at his fingertips. Perfection on the surface hides human flaws, though. The one thing Ashley fears? Commitment. If it isn’t broke, why fix it? He and his lover, Will, have the perfect relationship. Or so Ashley thinks until Will starts pushing for more.
Then a moment in time shatters the illusion of his perfection, and Ashley finds the very basis of his existence torn. Bruised. Wrecked and destroyed. Scarred.
A near-fatal car accident leaves Ashley permanently disfigured, his career in a tailspin. Only his lover, Will, has a chance to pull him out of his depression. Can Ashley see there is more to him than just a perfect face? Scars can fade, but true love never will.
