Release Date: November 4, 2014
In a life driven by passion, famed artist Maxfield Caswell lives in a world of brilliant color and drama, pushing his art and affairs to his emotional edge. He’s stunning, charismatic and celebrated in the art world, but are the trappings of fame also destroying him?
For years intelligent and bright-eyed Ava Jacobs has worked diligently toward a career in the art world. Ava is swept off her feet when she meets the passionate artist. She soon realizes, however, that he’s on a destructive path—one she doesn’t intend to join him on.
In the decadent world of patrons, art groupies, and predators, feisty and beautiful Ava knocks Max off his pedestal. A stunned Max sees something special in Ava and offers her an opportunity she can’t refuse. As their lives and passions collide, will he realize that she alone has the power to heal him? Can their hearts come together to create their own work of art?
This is an extremely well written book. Ruth Clampett is an amazing story teller. She has created a story that has you vested in these characters, you truly feel for them and their situations.
Max is a young amazing artist with a bright future ahead of him if he can get his head out of his ass. Ava becomes his staunch supporter. They are thrown together on a project that can mean great things for both of their careers. As they work on this project they develop a great friendship that could lead to more.
It’s difficult for me to say more without spoiling the storyline. Ruth Clampett has built this story up so well and has created a sloooooow burn that leaves you holding your breath in anticipation of what will happen next. This book definitely ends on a cliffhanger so be warned. The next book can’t come soon enough!!!
I gave this book five delicious, smooth cappuccinos that you want to sit and savour.
