not willing to risk anything to ruin what she’s built.
Jax Burke has been living his
dream. He’s one of the most sought after male models with his sexy look,
muscular body and brilliant tattoos that are becoming increasingly more
recognizable. He has no problem getting anything that he wants, including the
ladies.
When Kallie and Jax meet there’s an

time together, both realizing how much they have in common with their dreams
and goals. The closer they get to each other, the stronger their attraction
becomes.
Only problem is, Jax is willing to
risk it all for a chance at love, but Kallie is not.
Is it possible for Jax to convince
Kallie to see what is behind the lens?
Exclusive Excerpt:
I put my camera down and grab a towel to dry myself off a bit when Jax reaches out
and pulls me almost into the shower. We both just stare into the others eyes and I 
don’t notice his breathing but mine is heavy with arousal. He runs his wet hand down
my face, cupping my cheek and keeps our eyes locked.  “It’s getting harder for me 
Kallie. I’m trying so fucking hard.” As soon as I realize what he means I pull away 
from him. I can’t, I won’t do this.

My thoughts:

I have received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was my first book by Heather. To be honest when I started reading it, I didn’t expect anything. It was well after midnight when I started it…. and straight away I was pulled in. I went to bed at 3 AM, just because my husband took the kindle from me and told me to sleep.

The writing style of the author was just amazing. I loved it from the first paragraph.

In the book we meet Kallie (I love this name, is so unique!), when she is 8 and is taking a picture of a ladybug. I thought it’s adorable. I loved her connection she had with her mum and brother. Few years pass and we meet Heather in present time, when she is a successful photographer and owns her own studio. Over the years, Kallie has strictly stayed true to her most important rule: DO NOT DATE YOUR MODELS. She didn’t have any problems with it. Until she meets Jax Burke. He is kind, handsome and hot as sin. And also unavailable to her as he is her new model. The chemistry between them is instant. They can’t deny it, but only Jax is willing to act on it. Kallie, being professional, straight away is telling him, that she is not dating models. So Jax is doing only thing that will keep her next to him: agrees to be her friend. And they are best friends quickly. But when lust, passion and feeling are involved, friendship is quickly not enough. After few months of being friends, they decide to take a chance and start dating. And of course Kallie’s worst nightmare comes true. And their feelings are tested.

This book is amazing. Sexy, making you hot and wet in all the right places.

Kallie is a strong, level headed heroine, that simply knows what she wants. And now? Now she is living her dream, but is she able to risk everything she has and possibly have in the future for a one guy that makes her heart flutter?

Jax… oh my…hot as sin…totally lickable…there is nothing not to love about him. He is one piece of fine man. If I could I would transport him to my bedroom right now (shhh, don’t tell my hubby 😉 ). He is sweet, loves what he is doing and is responsible. He is able to cut his way of living to pursue Kallie. He knows she is worth all the fight. So he is being patient.

Heather amazingly describes the life of a model. Of all the challenges they have. Fighting for privacy, to b recognized and how to divide personal and business life and still stay true to yourself.

Except the main characters, I loved the supporting characters that are there: Max, Brin, Brody, Braden and Blake. They all have a story to tell and I hope Heather will tell us all of them. As I told Heather, Blake is one of those characters, that make you smile, shake your head, want to punch him and still love him anyway. Max, is the friend that is dependable. Brin is the crazy and sex as hell friends, that you don’t have to say anything, she will know that you need her. Brody and Braden, both big brothers, that make you envy that you don’t have a brother like that also.

Amazing, strong and hot as hell, 5 stars!

EXCERPT:
“It was one hell of a shoot today.” I close the door and lean on it, copying his position.
 “Thank you. I couldn’t have been happier with
the way things went.”  I look at him and he smiles. 
“Well, minus the Melanie incident.  gain, I’m so sorry about that. Nothing like that has ever happened with any of my models before. I hope that doesn’t deter you from working with me in the future.”  He laughs, and I find myself joining him.
“Kallie, believe me, a little cock grabbing isn’t going to keep me from working with you. I am looking forward to the next time.  You are definitely one of the most intriguing photographers I’ve ever worked with.”  The compliment feels amazing, especially coming from him.  He’s worked with some of the biggest photographers I know. 
            “This is my life, everything I’ve ever wanted.
So when you say something like that, it truly is a huge compliment. Thank you.”
He is searching my face, for what, I have no idea. I blink and look away though because it’s feeling too intimate. “I really need to get going. I have plans tomorrow, so I need to get these photos uploaded tonight.”
He pushes off the Jeep and stands in front of me. Not as close as earlier, but too close none the less.
            “What plans do you have tomorrow?  Dinner with your boyfriend?”  I can’t help but burst out laughing. It catches me completely off guard.  He rises his eyebrows and gives me that smirk.
            “Shit I’m sorry.  No, no dinner plans with the boyfriend. No boyfriend.  I have a shoot with my brother and his family.”  He becomes completely serious, searching my face again.  I really wish he’d stop doing that shit.
            “Why is it so funny that I’d ask if you have a boyfriend?”  I straighten my back and clear my throat, feeling like I need to defend myself.
            “You’re a nosy little shit.  If you must know, most guys are jealous, insecure pricks that can’t handle what I do for a living.  What I do is so much more important than a relationship anyway.  I really need to get home Jax.  Thank you
for helping with my bag and for being part of this today.”  I open my Jeep door, and he puts his arm against the truck, trapping me in place.  I have my back turned to him, and I’ve no intention of turning around.  I feel him move closer and my
heart pounds in my chest.
           “You just haven’t found the right guy, that’s all.  Good night Kallie.”  He doesn’t say another word, and I hear his feet crunching on the rocks as he makes his way to his car.  I never once turn around.  I climb into the truck and slam the door.  I the only sound is my heavy breathing and the frantic beating of my heart.
