*Thanks very much to the author who gave me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Jess, a junior staff writer at Spark magazine is on the verge of losing her job; however, she has one more chance by her boss to keep it if she is able to get close to Xander Heaton, a great artist whom is known for his great masterpieces as well as his womanizing. What Jess didn’t expect was her attraction for Xander. Trying to keep it on a professional level, she didn’t expect that their relationship would grow more than what it was supposed to be. Xander didn’t expect himself to be falling for this very self-conscious and insecure woman either. Both find themselves to be at odds with one another during their time spent together.
I felt as though Jess was someone whom many woman or even many men could relate to. I really enjoyed her even though many would probably find her character to be really annoying. Her insecurities and self-consciousness of everything about herself were very endearing because I myself can relate to her; from her weight to how she thinks she looks compared to others around her. Xander was a character I actually didn’t expect because I didn’t think his personality would be that great. I loved that he tried to help Jess get over her insecurities about herself and her bodies throughout the book because he wanted to show her something new. He wanted her to experience new things and to see herself in a different light. It was amazing to see Jess open herself up to new possibilites and new experiences. I’m not saying that we all need someone to help us with our insecurities or anything like that, but it was just amazing to read about a character in a book changing themselves and trying to improve themselves. It was like someone was trying to find or become the person they wanted to be.
