Book Description

7 Jun 2013
After years of following his activist parents, artist Blu Taylor finally found somewhere to call home. He sees art in the world around him yet is never truly part of it. There's a line that keeps him just on the outside of everything and everyone except his best friend. Thomas Harrington has everything--the money, the car, and the designer suits. But something is missing from a seemingly perfect life, lost when his mother fell ill. After attending a local art show, Blu is contacted by Tom and offered his dream--a chance to show at a gallery. Though there is a growing attraction between the men, their worlds couldn't be more apart. Blu speaks through paint and brushes, and Tom's life is filled with words and paperwork. Though opposites attract, these differences might push them apart.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to write home about 3 Oct 2012

A really ordinary read. I didn't engage with the characters and was bored by the story line.... So predictable. There was no depth to the relationship, it was hinted at but never developed.

3.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable but a bit thrill-less 3 Sep 2013
By E. E. McGauran - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
the story was sweet but not steamy. it wasn't extremely exciting but not a boring read.

the characters were only slightly above one dimensional. there could have been more character development.

the story could have lasted longer and developed more. it felt a bit rushed to the conclusion of the novel. and the conflict that occurs in all romance novels was a bit weak.

although the story line seemed a bit bland, it was still able to be enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Romance 9 Aug 2012
By Jon - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As usual, RJ Scott delivers a memorable story with rich characters that easily gain empathy from the reader. Blue is immediately likeable and while he is a typical "tortured artist" he has a lot of soul to him. I immediately felt a connection with him and was rooting for him from almost the first page. I got angry when some rich snob just uses him as a hole and then discards him. I wanted to comfort him when he reaches his breaking point later.

The supporting cast is also good, especially Blu's roommate who support Blu, champions him, and is supportive of him. Blu's love interest seems a bit too good to be true. Of all the characters that have a strong role in this story, he is the flattest. But hey, it's romantic fiction so that is ok.

The central conflict in this book ends up being Blu versus his inner demons which I think a lot of people can relate to. The "too good to be true" relationship, having something good and always be waiting for the other shoe to drop, and the feeling that we do not deserve the happiness being offered to us.

The thing I really enjoy though is that there is always a triumph in the end. Scott does not just allow her characters to waltz into this storybook romance and live happily ever after. They need to work for it like people do in reality. To me that makes her stories memorable, gripping, and most importantly relatable. Out of all of the books in this genre I own, RJ Scott's are the ones I find myself reading over and over again.

And as usual, I will add my standing "complaint" with Scott's work - it always ends too soon for me and I am left wanting more time and time again. I am definitely in favor of sequels.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pattycake enjoyed reading it 4 July 2013
By Becky C - Published on
The Art of Words by RJ Scott and Meredith Russell is the delightful story of two men from totally different worlds. The blurb covers the basic storyline but to really appreciate it, you need to read it for yourself. Anything that I could add would just spoil it. This is definitely a character driven tale with a plot that starts smoothly and flows effortlessly until the end. The characters are very well rounded with diverse personalities that complement each other, with strengths and weaknesses that bring them to life.

The authors' styles of writing complement each other as they combine their genius together with simple, clear, concise,and original skill. There's not much sex in the story, but it's so well done that it's really not needed. There's just enough backstory to lay the foundation without too much trivia. The story has a HEA ending after a misunderstanding almost ends the budding relationship and I really enjoyed reading it. If you're looking for a great way to spend an hour or so, then I can really recommend this book to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Story! 17 Jun 2013

Quite a different slant on relationships and personal expression. Most people use words, but in this tale, Blu doesn't. Too often words fail him when he needs them. This was an enjoyable read with interesting characters and a sweet romantic HEA ending.
