All too soon, artist Sienna Karr will graduate art school and be flung out into Manhattan’s glamorous but cutthroat gallery scene. Luckily, she’s just met Dave Hightower, heir to the hippest gallery ever. He’s asked her on a date, and offered to introduce her to the gallery owner, his intimidating Aunt Lydia. Sienna’s excited! Now she’ll be able to climb the ranks and make those all-important art connections.
Trouble is, she’s falling hard for the sexy live drawing model, Erik, whose sizzling green eyes seem to pierce right into her soul. Dare she risk losing those potential art contacts for love? Erik insists that Sienna is a real talent and her painting stands out above all the others. But she worries that he whispers this come-on line to every pretty art student who flocks around him during breaks. And her friends worry, is Erik up to her pay grade? What kind of guy chooses modeling for a living? Who is he, really? Her choice may be her ruin… or not, but she must decide fast. Everything in Sienna’s super-organized life is turning to terrifying yet sweet chaos.
This novella was a very quick read for me, and overall I enjoyed the story as a quick escape from the things that I’m usually inclined to read. Occasionally I’m drawn toward a romance story, and this one was cute and clever.
Sienna thinks she knows what she wants from life, and when things start to fall into place, she realizes that perhaps she didn’t really know what she needs from life. Soon, Sienna finds herself being pursued by two men, one the nephew of the owner of the ‘it’ art gallery in Manhattan, the other the new model in one of her classes.
Sienna decides to follow what she feels in her heart, despite initial appearances, and is pleasantly surprised when she discovers that things weren’t quite as they seemed at first, and that the man she’s dating has some very interesting secrets.
Overall, I give this book 3/5 stars.
