In a life driven by passion, famed artist Maxfield Caswell lives in a world of brilliant color and drama, pushing his art and affairs to his emotional edge. He’s stunning, charismatic and celebrated in the art world, but are the trappings of fame also destroying him?
For years intelligent and bright-eyed Ava Jacobs has worked diligently toward a career in the art world. Ava is swept off her feet when she meets the passionate artist. She soon realizes, however, that he’s on a destructive path—one she doesn’t intend to join him on.
In the decadent world of patrons, art groupies, and predators, feisty and beautiful Ava knocks Max off his pedestal. A stunned Max sees something special in Ava and offers her an opportunity she can’t refuse. As their lives and passions collide, will he realize that she alone has the power to heal him? Can their hearts come together to create their own work of art?
|Work Of Art was another surprise like read for me. I keep finding books that aren't my normal go to style, and I love them!! This was a breath of fresh air; with the amazing cover art, catchy title names, and quotes at the beginning of each chapter. And better yet, amazing story, that yes, has you begging for more at the end.|
Ruth Clampett gives us Ava and Max. Ava is a women who works in the art industry, and Max is a playboy artist with tons of art groupies begging for a piece of him. Ava doesn't fall for his playboy ways, she sees through them in fact. Knows there is more to him. You may think, brooding man, naive girl.....same story. Wrong!! It twists and leaves you going WTH just happened!?
Their is love, art, love triangle, frustration, realism from the places she describes, and other feelings I don't want to spoil. There is a cliffhanger, book 2 comes out next year. But do not let that discourage you from reading. This book is amazing. I give this book 4.5 paintbrushes for originality with story, realism, characters, and ending!! Now, where is book 2? I am ready!!!
