This was a pretty good story, but I had a really hard time falling into the characters. Charley was a little too secretive - especially to me as a reader. I can understand her not wanting the world to know her past, but I got a little frustrated that I didn't understand why - because I didn't know what the secret was about. There's some hints along the way, but I was blind-sided when I found out what it really was.
Twenty-three year old model Charley Whitlock built a quiet life for herself after
disaster struck four years ago. She hides beneath her beautiful mask, never revealing her true self to the world... until she comes face-to-face with her new photographer — sexy, possessive Jude Anderson. It's clear from the first time she meets him that she's playing by his rules. He says jump, she asks how high. He tells her to unzip her cream Dior gown; she knows she has to comply. But what if she wants him to take charge outside of the studio as well?
Jude Anderson has a strict "no model" dating policy. But everything about Charley sets his body on fire.
When a tropical photo shoot in Hawaii forces the stubborn pair into sexually charged situations, their chemistry can no longer be ignored. They’ll have to decide if they’re willing to break their rules and leave the past behind or if they’ll stay consumed by their demons forever.
Will Jude persuade Charley to give in to her deepest desires?
**Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual situations.**
Jude also has secrets. There were just too many of these to go around for me. His are just as deep seated and this becomes a case of two broken people making a whole once they put their pieces together. They are quite on again and off again, but it a very strange sort of way since they aren't ever "officially" on to begin with.
I wanted to have more of a personal connection to the characters, but I just never found it until the very end. I did enjoy that several of the side characters were well developed and I really enjoyed them throughout the whole story.
