Once more, I found myself ensnared by McIntyre's expert story telling. The world and characters she created were so vivid and realistic that I found myself falling in love with the novel. With each new muse, I found myself caught up in their stories, their lives, and their emotions. I felt my heart breaking with theirs and smiling with each success. My heart was always with Grace, who I felt for the most. I would have felt more sympathetic for Helen if she wasn't so pathetic, and I couldn't even begin to like Sara who just a brat. I would feel sorry for Edward, but he was so in love with Sara, he couldn't see what a snot she was.
But Grace. How could Thomas see how perfect she was? I literally wanted to punch him for being such a chauvinistic snob that he was. In all honestly, he didn't deserve her love for how he abandoned her the way he did. And yet, I wanted them to succeed so much that I felt his love for her was apology enough. This novel brought out the romantic in me despite how dark and depressing it really was. Every happily ever after was worth the suffering of getting there.
Definitely a must read in my opinion.
I had great hopes for THE MASTER AND THE MUSES. That it would focus on the art as much as the "relationship", showing how each woman influenced Thomas and his painting. Thomas Rodin comes off very poorly. He's arrogant, boorish and I have a hard time, truly, seeing what the women saw in him. I thought Helen was a whiner and it also annoyed me how Thomas' brother William deferred to him. Sara and Edward, who appear in section two, were the only characters I even half liked. I felt they were honest and the least pretentious. The only character who appears in each section, other than Thomas, is Grace. Her section is the last one. Grace, with all her trials and tribulations, I think was meant to be a sympathetic character. All that aside I couldn't and didn't like her. To me she came off as dishonest and sneaky. The best section is Sara and Edward. The ending was perfect though, in my opinion. You get what you deserve comes to mind.
I received this book from the publisher @ netgalley.
Amanda McIntyre is a bright new star who is showing with each title that she is a force to be reckoned with in the romance world. Her writing here is realistic, filled with emotion, and had me clinging to every page to see where she would take the characters next. It was a page turner from the very beginning. I could easily picture these stories as having truly happened it reads like an intimate diary of sorts into the characters lives. Those who love a good sexy read will enjoy this one thoroughly! I do look forward to many more of Ms. McIntyre's novels I will definitely be waiting in the wings for them!:)
