From afar, Elodie Marais is just a typical 19-year old girl roughing it in Manhattan. She hates her job, her love life sucks and she’s totally getting ripped off by her landlord. Like most of her starry-eyed peers, she’ll do anything for the Triple P’s—Prada, a Promotion and the elusive Perfect Boyfriend. But Elodie and her friends aren’t your average new adults who are bored to tears by their uninspiring lives—they’re fashion models.
So what’s a girl to do when her life is turned upside down as two irresistible bachelors vie for her doe-eyed attention, just as she’s starting to make waves in the modelling world? Will she go with charming and sensitive James, a handsome financier, or reckless and unpredictable Tyler, the stunning male model du jour?
Follow Elodie’s adventures from Manhattan to Paris as she navigates the terrifying worlds that are the modeling industry and her love life, one effortlessly chic outfit at a time.
This novel contains graphic sexual content and strong language. It is intended for mature readers.
I DECIDED TO PICK THIS BOOK JUST BASED ON THE COVER; YES, THAT’S TERRIBLE, BUT IT JUST CAUGHT MY ATTENTION. THIS IS DEFINITELY A DIFFERENT READ COMPARED TO MY USUAL STACK. THE BEGINNING WAS A LITTLE ROUGH FOR ME; IT WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE AND I GOT CONFUSED, BUT THAT COULD BE MY INCOMPETENCE. HOWEVER, THE STORY DID PICK UP AND I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT. THE WRITING IS DARK AND EDGY, NOT WHAT I EXPECTED AT ALL FROM A STORY LIKE THIS.
THE CHARACTERS WERE WELL DEVELOPED BUT AT TIMES, ELODIE’S CHARACTER GOT ON MY NERVES.
THE CONSTANT TALK OF DIETING AND WHO DESIGNED THE CLOTHING WAS A LITTLE REPETITIVE, BUT THE STORY TAKES PLACE IN THE FASHION WORLD, SO THAT’S EXPECTED. I REALLY FELT BAD FOR ELODIE; THE GIRL COULD NOT CATCH A BREAK. HER LIFE IS FULL OF TWISTS AND TURNS AND AT SOME POINTS, I FELT A FULL ON DEPRESSION FOR THIS GIRL. ALL SHE WANTED WAS TO FULFILL HER DREAM OF BEING A HIGH-END FASHION MODEL BUT SHE GOT MORE THAN SHE CAN BARGAIN FOR.
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS OF THIS BOOK WAS THE LOVE TRIANGLE!! WHEWWW! BOTH OF THE GUYS WERE HOT AND THE SEX SCENES WERE ON FIRE! CAN I JUST SAY THAT I AM TEAM TYLER! HE HAD ME FROM THE VERY BEGINNING WITH HIS CHARM, TENDERNESS, AND DAMN, I CAN PICTURE HIM NOW! LOL
OVERALL, THIS WAS A WELL WRITTEN STORY AND I WILL DEFINITELY CHECK OUT THE REST OF THE SERIES.
