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?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Review

I received an ARC of this book from TRSOR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

Second chances. You know, I’m a sucker for these stories. I was excited to read this book because unlike most second chance romances, in this story, the heroine was the one who broke up with the hero, left, and chased her dream. This is probably the only book where I had absolutely no love for the heroine. I wouldn’t also say I completely loved the hero because he had flaws too, but well, the heroine wins the spot for the character I liked the least.

This is where I want to explain why I am still going to rate this three red hearts. I liked the story. I liked the pacing. I liked how real the characters were. Yes, I didn’t like them much, but they sounded so real and so human. Their mistakes were definitely something any person would make. I also liked the secondary characters because they really contributed a lot to the story.

I wasn’t expecting a cliffhanger. I am a little disappointed about that, but I am still curious enough to want to read the next book. I want Nate and Olie back together. I think they’ve both learned much and matured well enough to handle their relationship a second time. The ending of this book just got me very excited for what’s to come.

 

Excerpt

He shoved his hands inside his jeans. “Since I’m here, and your mom promised me a pie, I should get to work.”

I ran my fingers through my hair, moving it away from my face. “You don’t have to stay, Nate. I mean, I appreciate you wanting to help my mom.”

He ignored me. “Let’s start with the box you’re holding.” He came toward me.

If I had handed it to him, everything would have been just fine. Instead, I backed away, tripped over a box full of books, and stumbled backward on top of my bed. The box in my hand went flying onto the floor.

Being a gentleman, Nate reached down to help me clean up the mess. Instead of putting things back into the box, he sifted through them.

“You still have these?” he asked, holding up a photo of us at a Valentine’s dinner. After he placed it down, he picked up a smaller box and opened it. It held the crystal bracelet he had given to me the last Christmas we spent together. It had been a while since I’d worn it. I’d thought about wearing it again, but not in front of him just yet.

I got off the bed reluctantly, wishing I could hide under the covers instead. Scattered about the carpet were more photos of us and some cards he had given me for my birthday, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. Nate always got me a card. He was sentimental that way.

He slowly peered upward at me with an expression I didn’t understand. Was he mad? Then, with a hint of a smile, he quickly placed everything inside the box, closed the lid, and handed it to me. After I took it from his hand, he stood up, facing me.

“I never threw anything you gave me away,” I said, looking down at the box. In the silence that followed, I wondered what he thought.

He heaved a long sigh. “You kept everything but me.” His words came out soft but harsh, and they were loud as thunder in my mind.

Hurt swam in his eyes. What do I say after that? He was so right. Before I had the chance to speak, he turned and walked out of my room, shattering my heart into pieces. I wanted to cry. I was reliving that night again, the very night I wanted to redo.
