Summary

No one captures a perfect picture of a couple finding one another quite like Nora Roberts, the #1 New York Times bestselling “word artist” (Los Angeles Daily News), who focuses on the intense passion that develops between a model and the man captivated by her in Blithe Images.

Mode Magazine is one of New York City’s premier fashion glossies and Hilary Baxter has just been contracted as one of their models. The culture shock she experiences between her small-town Kansas life and the glamour of the Big Apple is nothing compared to the thrill she gets when Mode’s charismatic publisher Bret Bardoff takes a personal interest in guiding her career. Unable to resist Bret’s seductive allure, Hilary’s infatuation turns into love—a love she hopes is strong enough for Bret to see the person behind the beauty.

This book did not age well

I didn’t realize when I downloaded that this was first published in 1982. This book does not age well. The male interest is a pushy misogynist whose only redeeming quality is that he’s rich. He’s very Christian Grey without the kink or caring qualities. The lead girl somehow thinks she’s in love with him after he throws a fit when she stops him from having sex with her during making out. There is a whole paragraph of him saying that “if you kiss a guy like that there are certain expectations of where it is going to lead”. Apparently No does not mean no to this guy or makes her a tease for responding to any physical attention. Especially considering the current lack of women’s rights in the US right now I could not finish this book. The narration must have been in Julia’s early days too as the voice is very different from books you hear her read now. She is my favorite narrator which is why I downloaded this book but this was my least favorite performance combined with a very poor book.

Disappointing

This is a very forgettable book. The worst Nora roberts book I have ever listened to. Characters barely fleshed out. Storyline so predictable. Don’t bother
