Series: Illusions Duet #1
Worshipped for his bold paintings as much as his divine looks, he’s the art world’s biggest celebrity. Under normal circumstances our paths would never cross.
But when his extracurricular activities threaten a high-profile business deal, I’m forced to take him as a client. My task: keep him out of the tabloids for six months.
But Gideon doesn’t want a publicist. He wants a new muse.
As I fall deeper under his sinful spell, a lifetime of secrets and carefully crafted lies unravels. Too late, I remember the truths they protect:
I am already someone’s masterpiece.
And the original artist wants me back.

Both the main characters were super intriguing. Gideon was sexy as f-ck (even if he was a ginger *lol*). He had a bit of a bad boy mystery thing going on even though he was the more straightforward of the two mains. He wore his heart on his sleeve with Dierdre though. Dierdre was really the star of this book. The author mentioned in a post she made that she thought Dierdre was the “alphahole” here, so I admit I was a little scared as I am not a fan of that type of heroine, but “I” didn’t find her an alphahole at all. She was strong, but also vulnerable. She was feisty, but also sweet. I thought she was a great heroine. However, I share Gideon’s worry…“If someone does come back, it won’t be her. It won’t be Deirdre.”
This was a fairly slow burn romance. No sex until almost 70% into the book, but this couple had OUT OF THIS WORLD sexual chemistry. There wasn’t any OW or OM drama. However, the heroine sees the hero getting a BJ at a sex club. It isn’t overly detailed and you find out it happened three years before the start of this book. I will also add a spoiler because there is something in this book that I know some people are not fans of –> (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) There is a menage scene between Gideon, Dierdre, and his friend Finn. This happens after Gideon and Dierdre have exchanged “I love you” This book also had some great secondary characters. We briefly see Dominic and London again from PERFECT VISION. I also loved both Finn and Nate and hope we get to see more of them in book two (and beyond?) Last, it was all wrapped up on a heartbreaking cliffhanger. Luckily for ME book two landed on my tablet a couple days ago…woot! (lol)
