Everything is sexy at Knight Fashion Magazine.
Nathan Cross is a struggling actor waiting tables at a local restaurant to make ends meet while he attends endless auditions. Though his hopeful career moves at a slow pace, Olivia is the strength and sunshine in his life… until she leaves him. One day, he is offered a contract with a modeling agent, leading him to work for Knight Fashion Magazine—a dream job he never imagined would become a reality.
Olivia swore she would always put her career first and that’s precisely what she did when she left Nathan. Having a deadbeat dad and watching her mom work two jobs to make ends meet have been her driving force. When she is offered a modeling career, she drops everything—even the love of her life—and moves to New York.
Though Nathan and Olivia try to steer clear of one another, working for the same fashion magazine causes their paths to cross again and old emotions are awakened. Can Nathan forgive Olivia or will he take the next step with the woman he is currently dating? Will Olivia do everything she can to break them apart? Or will she choose her career over her heart… again?
(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)
Well to begin with I’m going to state that I have adored the other books in this series. With that being said, not so much on this spin-off.
Nate was torn to shreds by the love of his life, Olivia, dumping him so that she could pursue her career in modeling. It turned him into a whiney little B-word.
In a twist-of-fate, Nate was discovered and is now a fashion model. One fateful day they are reunited because they are both employed by Knight.
Alternating persons storytelling complete this books to end in a cliffhanger that makes me want the next book now while I hold out hope the Nate will end up stepping into an Alpha role.
Nate and Olivia seem weak to me, and maybe it’s that they are both so heartbroken. If that’s the intention, then kudos here. I actually loved the supporting characters, even the bad ones because they were so well written and are the kick-in-the-pants the story needs to get me excited to read the next installment.
