He is a somewhat jaded, well-known artist, unconventional but passionate. Many want him, for the wrong reasons, few understand him for the right ones. He doesn't question the value of his work, but never trusts his own true worth.
She learned to trust the choices she made. Firmly believes in the artistic and the practical, and the balance it brings. She can see and interpret, as easily as look and act. She is willing to fight for what she wants and will never sell herself short. Atta girl!!
Love the strong female protagonist! Self-assured, willing to put herself out there and not waiting for life to fall in her lap, but going out and grabbing it! And she's telling him, you either want me, or you don't, so piss or get off the pot!! I'm moving ahead and I'm doing it either with or without. Just great!
Gregori is amazing too, he knows he has been pampered and indulged, by himself as well. He knows he is being a ninny and when he is being called on it, he is man enough to admit to it (fine, with a bit of convincing). Somehow, Lauren Dane manages not to diminish his 'manliness' or hunk-factor. In fact, funny enough, this little bit of a weak spot, on this particular guy is mighty appealing.........weird?
Fiercely stimulating and passionate, and a fantastic quick read!
