Series: Facets of Passion #2
Author: Jeffe Kennedy
Althea Grant's Charleston gallery might be suffering from the bad economy, and her artistic aspirations have gone nowhere, but she's doing just fine, thank you. When bad-boy sculptor Steel rides up on his motorcycle looking to rent studio space, his infusion of cash is more than welcome. But his art is raw, visceral, sexual—and completely inappropriate for her pastel world of watercolor landscapes. Steel, fascinated by Althea's rare albino coloring, sees in her the key to his next piece: a metal satyr designed for bondage games. Moving into her gallery basement is the first step; seducing the cool Southern belle into modeling for him is the second. As Steel peels away her careful manners and tasteful outfits, Althea begins to realize her life isn't just fine at all—it's as pale and washed-out as the watercolor paintings she's failing to sell. Can she transform her life and accept her most secret desires?
When a good girl gone wild, this will happen. The story was short, and I dont know, this time I feel everything was a little bit rushed for me. It happened so fast like so fast you dont know what is happening. It is understandable that Althea's decision is because she's struggling with her gallery and his whatever boyfriend, she just need a getaway and Steel happened to her gateway. Everything that happened really like I dont feel the connection, does it because Althea's running away? I don't know. At times, I felt Althea's relationship with Steel even in the end just plain and bland. When the romance happens, it was okay but not really thrilled or kind of not drawing me in. I think the series should be more on chemistry. Sometimes it is just not sex. But please give it a try, and maybe you like it even more the I do.
