Blurb: Former model Brent Phillips now works the other side of the camera. He makes his money on senior portraits but wants to create an art exhibition. His only problems are lack of a central image and a three-week deadline.
Enter Brent’s friends, who resolve to discover the perfect model for his project. They find him in Tristan Greer, a college student who left home after coming out and is trying to make ends meet.
Though initially reluctant, Tristan agrees to work with Brent to capture the image Brent wants—a gay version of Herb Alpert’s Whipped Cream album photo. It turns out the camera loves Tristan, and the photographer may as well.
Review: Short, Sexy and Steamy.. say it with me now, my three favorite colors! Brent is a former model turned photographer. Being familiar with both sides of the camera gives him an edge that his rival, Xavier doesn’t possess.
Tristan is a college student trying to make ends meet, and the perfect model for Brent’s latest project. To spite the age difference, the two begin a passionate affair. Brent falls hard for the young, charismatic model, but does his best to hide his feelings. Because there is no possible way Tristan feels the same way about him, is there?
This is the first short I’ve read by Grey, and he manages to capture the emotions of the story and the characters just as he does with his full length novels. I can almost see Tristan looking at Brent as I’m reading, with love and longing. These two have some hot, steamy sex as well. Again, Grey is very good at conveying to the reader the way Tristan makes Brent feel, the sensuality of their relationship.
Definitely a must read for Andrew Grey fans. And if you are a fan of romantic, sexy, HEA stories this one is for you.
