Art Lover in the MakingThis book is very well written and fits the Bold Strokes Books brand perfectly I am not into art really but the story moved me so much, was so descriptive and sensual that I had to look up some of the artwork the author so lovingly refers to I can see how they would be inspirational The characters are believable I liked how they had realistic self doubts, were not afraid to cuss when necessary and were not perfect Very refreshing The sex was yummy and a part of the Art Lover in the MakingThis book is very well written and fits the Bold Strokes Books brand perfectly I am not into art really but the story moved me so much, was so descriptive and sensual that I had to look up some of the artwork the author so lovingly refers to I can see how they would be inspirational The characters are believable I liked how they had realistic self doubts, were not afraid to cuss when necessary and were not perfect Very refreshing The sex was yummy and a part of the story, not just tossed in for the sake of having a sex scene The whole book felt very present, now, real.I m not really sure how to explain it, just like it could be happening in this place in time The descriptions were vivid, great story line, likable characters, a solid 5 stars and one of the best romances I ve read this year Original review with Prism Book Alliance No chemistry Things just happen with no real logic behind them There is no build up I m thinking I won t end up finishing this book. I just couldn t really connect with the characters, and the book was okay, but it barely held my attention Could be I just wasn t in the right frame of mind for this book when I read it.
