For Sienna, love and art are perilous games. Is she ready to take that gamble?
Sienna is a beautiful, talented artist poised on the precipice of soaring into the glamorous, yet cutthroat Manhattan art scene.
Dave Hightower is a hooked-up, handsome heir to the hippest gallery in NYC, Gallery Hightower.
Erik is the live drawing model with his sizzling green eyes fixed only on Sienna.
Three’s a crowd, so Sienna must make a choice: date Dave and ride the fast track to landing a show at Gallery Hightower and hobnobbing with the art glitterati, or follow her heart and take a chance with Erik, the stunning male model who’s stealing her heart. But Erik has some worrisome secrets, and who in their right mind would make live modeling their career?
Dare Sienna throw away her chances of hitting it big to follow her heart?
In Model Position author Kitsy Clare takes us to the glamorous and cutthroat Manhattan art scene. Even though the setting was exciting the story was too short for me to connect with these characters.
Sienna is a talented artist with dreams of being rich and famous. Her goal is to have her art work showcased in a reputable gallery. I admire her ambition but I really didn’t like her! Sienna’s childhood was chaotic, constantly having to move because of her Mom’s multiple divorces. So I understand that she wants to avoid following in her Mom’s footsteps of making bad choices in men. Sienna befriends her fellow classmate David Hightower, who just happens to have a famous aunt who owns the Hightower art gallery. Even though she isn’t completely attracted to David, Sienna sees David as an opportunity to make her dreams come true. This is fine until she meets the sexy model Erik. Sienna is physically attracted to Erik and discovers that he honestly appreciates her artwork. Sienna and Erik form a connection beyond the physical attraction. But she can’t get past the thought of being with someone that isn’t making a lot of money. I cringed when I read Sienna saying “It would be so much easier to be with a guy who already has cash and connections”. Sienna does have issues with commitment (because of her Mom), so I had hoped to see her character grow. But the story jumped around so fast (one moment she’s with David, the next she’s with Erik) I missed the character development. At the end of the story I wasn’t convinced that she was following her heart and that she had realized that true love doesn’t involve dollar signs.
I did like the plot and I thought the writing was ok. I just think it needed to be longer.
