When the stakes are high and things seem too good to be true, what do you believe in?
For Magnolia Burns, sculpture is her life. It’s her daily work, her greatest love, and her constant struggle. It may not be the easiest way to pay her bills, but sculpture is just about the only romance in her life. But when Front Street Gallery takes on a sexy new tenant—German painter and photographer Ranier Ferran— Magnolia’s whole life is about to be turned on its head.
Ranier is a perfectionist and a romantic. A late night rendezvous in his studio swiftly turns into a sensual exploration of each other’s desire, as Ranier learns every curve and contour of Magnolia’s beautiful body.
Now sculpture has some competition for her affections, and Ranier is about to show Magnolia the pleasure to be gained from giving up control.
This is another free digital book from Lucia Jordan and it did not leave me wanting to read the other three.
My main complaint with the story is the “instant sex”. There was no preliminary chemistry or build up between Magnolia and Ranier, he just told her to take off her clothes, tied her to a table and had sex with her. Then he has the audacity to paint her like that and submit in an art contest. That’s where the book ends and that’s where my interest in the characters and plot ends too.
