Book Description

16 Mar 2008 Kimani Romance (Book 80)
Ambitious art-buyer Avery always trusts her first impressions, whether it's with art or with men. Sexy photographer Quentin makes her heart race, but the laid-back charmer is not her type. Then a secret from her past comes to light, leaving her vulnerable and seeking sympathy. One kiss with Quentin and first impressions are left behind in a haze of sensual bliss. Quentin's not looking for long-term. He's career-orientated, and as love and aspirations collide, heartbreak seems inevitable. But Quentin realises that he can't picture a life - or a future - without Avery in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars (RAW Rating: 3.5) - A Love Worth Fighting For 29 Jan 2008
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A keen eye for details, Avery Roberts can spot a disaster waiting to happen a mile away. This uptight, classy, and sophisticated woman is a contemporary art buyer in New York City where she is trying to make a name for herself in the industry. Having been reared by a prominent family, she has no need to work, but her desire to make it on her own will not allow her to use her family's connections. Her first big art show is finally underway for her new artist when in walks a group of uninvited guests who are accompanied by a sexy, and handsome man who makes her lose her breath.

This breath of fresh air is Quentin Davis, an unattached world-renowned photojournalist who travels the world dating women from all walks of life with no long term commitments. Upon sight, a spark or a flicker could not be seen between the two; Avery's demeanor is so cold towards him she is quickly nicknamed "Ice Queen". His friends take notice and propose Quentin with a $50 bet in order to try and win her over. Never one to back down from a challenge, Quentin accepts and begins the journey of chipping away at her cold exterior.

Much to everyone's surprise, a deep love develops, taking them places they've never been before. They are so excited about their future until their personal lives ensues chaos, jeopardizing their budding relationship. Their lives are intertwining in ways they never thought they would which makes it impossible for their relationship to survive...or does it?

Yahrah St. John shows the reader that work must be put in for any type of relationship to work. Both Quentin and Avery had to deal with several obstacles, both personal and professional, before they could commit to one another. This love story is well-written and flows very well keeping the reader engaged with every passing chapter. The challenges presented to the couple are extreme; however, it is necessary in order to show their dedication to one another. If you're a fan of St. John this work will not disappoint you.

I read this book in two days and it only took me that long because I had to go into work one of those days! This is the first book by Yahrah St John that I've read and I'm now going to read her backlist.

I can't wait for the remaining books in the Orphan series to be released! The characters are so well developed that it seems as if they are real. Okay, I just sounded incredibly stupid typing that but it's true.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Hobby Photography 4 Mar 2013
By T. Brame - Published on

This book made me wish to pick up a camera and takes some photos of something. Not because the book focused on it but Quentin sounded so delectable I was hoping to meet someone out there like him. Even with his very modest beginnings he showed a strength most people are still trying to obtain. His confidence is only supported by the gift of the eye he was blessed with. He isn't your typical man so he doesn't necessarily dress the part so when he crashes Avery's party she is quick to pass judgement. I loved her having to eat crow when she realizes that she has stuck her foot into it. Coming from privilege has it's advantages and disadvantages.

I was mildly disappointed in the way that Avery treated her mother, she won no maturity points from me. She seemed to play the part well of a spoiled brat and that was a little much for my taste. Her reaction to finding out she was adopted was less then stellar too. I guess I wouldn't have handled it well but I expected more sadness than anger. She seemed to be in blame mode, rather than emotionally upset about not being a part of the family she has come to know.

The relationship with Quentin was based on a bet and even though it started wrong somewhere along the way he was able to look past her privilege and fall in love with her. He definitely saw something I didn't see...he was even ready to risk the only family he ever had for a chance to love her. What more could a woman want. It's the first book in this series of orphaned friends.
