Review by Brittany
Oh my freaking gosh. This novella is such a spicy read, you won’t want to miss out. It is intended for audiences 18 and over, though.
In this novella, Julia is a freelance artist that occasionally writes for a magazine. Julia has had the worst luck trying to find a man. She’s dated, or well, spent the night with, several men, but none of them do it for her. That is, until she meets two men on an assignment for the magazine she works for.
First, there’s Pierce. A museum curator who loves the same artist she does. He’s sexy, smart, and wears those black-framed glasses like no other man. When she spoke with him for the first time over the phone, she believed he was an old, yet fun, man. She was wrong, so, so wrong. When she made her trip to Chicago, he gave her the address to a loft where they were supposed to meet. This is where she meets Emerson.
Emerson is tall, big, and oh so devastatingly gorgeous. He’s quiet, commanding, and dominates a room with just his presence. An ex-wrestler turned artist, he paints just like the artist Julia idolizes. His big hands can do wonders with a small paintbrush, creating masterpieces that blew Julia away.
Imagine Julia’s shock when Pierce walked in. Pierce just laughed it off as if he was used to walking into rooms with naked women being painted. After Julia conducts her interview with Pierce, things start to get heated up. These fires stay heated for the few days she’s in Chicago. One of these men, though, has been causing her heart to flutter. She struggles with distance, since she is native to Los Angeles and he is in Chicago. The man feels the same and does whatever he can to be with her. He is determined to make it work and so is she.
This novella should come with a warning: keep your husband, boyfriend, or B.O.B within reach while reading! Great job, Fifi, on this amazing novella!
I gave this novella four stars. The unique story line flowed together nicely, but I was never emotionally invested in the story. If you’re looking for a quick, quirky read, then this is for you!
