Justin is the first book in a series. We first meet Tara who is in dire need of a cup of coffee. She’s loaded an app she created on her GPS system in her car and while a phone call tries to come through she gets distracted and ends up hitting a guy on the side of the road. He thinks he is dead and seeing an angel. This is Justin. He’s a firefighter and male model and he immediately thinks Tara is a beautiful angel.
Turns out, he’s not dead and he just has two broken wrists. Tara goes to the hospital to see how he is doing and Justin is falling for her. She ends up having him stay at her house so she can help him out while he recovers and can’t really use his arms due to casts.
Meanwhile, Tara’s boss is a capital B i-t-c-h and is super demanding. When Tara decides to send a car service to pick her up so she can take Justin to the doctor, her boss (did I mention her boss is also her mom?) fires her!
Now Tara has moved in with Justin and accompanies him to one of his photoshoots. When the photographer senses the chemistry between the two they decide to do a shoot with Justin AND Tara for the book – and their relationship takes off from there…
This was a short book, under 100 pages, but I enjoyed it. A bit strange of a way to meet – her hitting him with his car – but I actually have heard of people meeting boyfriends that way so I guess it’s not too far fetched. The two hit it off right away and I enjoyed the story. I am looking forward to future books in the series (which are apparently called Lance and Joshua. NSYNC theme, anyone?)
I received a free e-copy in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Tara Malone is having one of those lives. Born to Oscar award-winning actor, Anthony Malone, and model-famous beauty, Veronica Scott, she should have it made. But her curvy figure and out-of-control frizzy red hair are just the start of her many, many issues. Now to make matters worse, she’s started out her week by running over model, Justin James, with her car. She had a lot of fantasies about the cover model, but never did any of them include vehicular assault.
Justin James doesn’t have time for two broken wrists, but neither does his over-achieving family. He can’t open up his fridge or unzip his fly without excruciating pain and no one else has the time to help him. Tara already shot him down at the accident scene, but maybe he can work this so that the curvy bombshell has a reason to hang around for a bit. He’s not above using guilt if it means he gets to know her better.
The first in a new series of novellas inspired by Shauna Kruse’s photography and her beautiful male models.
The Male Model Chronicles.
Disclaimer: The Male Model Chronicles, a new fictional series, is built around the real-life world of Kruse Images & Photography and the gorgeous male models that Shauna Kruse gets to immortalize in her photos. The heroes are real people who also happen to be male models, but every single other thing about the series is fiction.
