Summary

“Must be slim, able to stand for long periods of time, and be impervious to the cold.”

The headline caught my attention.

“Hours are negotiable, pay is minimal, clothing absolutely forbidden.”

The second line piqued my curiosity.

“Able to hold your bladder and tongue, refrain from opinions or suggestions, and be the perfect living canvas.”

The third made me scowl.

“Other attributes required: non-ticklish, contortionist, and obedient. Must also enjoy being studied while naked in a crowd.”

The fourth made me shudder.

“Call or email 'Your Skin, His Canvas' if interested in applying.”

The final made my heart race.

I should’ve kept scrolling past the advertisement. I should’ve applied for the boring receptionist job at minimum wage. I should’ve clicked on any other job where I got to keep my clothes on. But I didn’t. I applied. My interview is tomorrow....

Incredible

Oh Pepper Winters, what you have done to heart! This book has so much of everything in it, I could not stop listening. There is something to be said about second chance romances. The history of a couple builds that foundation and Winters masterfully lets us in on Olin Moss and Gilbert Clark's second chance. With alternating points of view, Gilbert gives us the history of their sweet, budding romance. Both from different sides of the track, yet have a common thread of dysfunctional homes. T Fast forward 7 years, and we get to hear Olin, as she encounters Gil again, answering an ad to be a living canvas for a body painter. The chemistry it palpable and Winters captures every essence of it. Olin is a strong woman, and fiercely loyal. While I love her, I at times wanted to shake her and tell her to move on already, but with that incredible connection to Gil, I just knew she couldn't walk. Gil is so broody and broken, I can fully understand Olin's draw to him. To help him, and make everything better. But there are so many secrets yet to be told. The story is heartbreaking, full of sensuality and mystery. Ending on a cliffhanger, I cannot wait to hear those secrets!!!! Winters is an amazing story teller and I am sure it is going to be mind blowing.

Choosing the narrators for this story had to be quite a mission. Gilbert is strong, passionate, broken. Will Watt finds that place with his voice that brings it all out. You can hear the pain, the frustration and the undying love he has. It's truly amazing. Olin is so optimistic, strong willed, compassionate and loving. With Charlotte Cole bringing her to life, we hear the inflections of love, the constant want in her voice to be there for Gil and just fix it all and make it better. These two narrators have a chemistry that lets us feel the story, then and now and leaves us wanting more.

I love Pepper Winters but ...

I love Pepper Winters. I have purchased all of her audiobooks. This one is just very repetitive and seems like she was trying to just add words to fill up the pages. After 15 hours there is still no resolve and I’m still trying to figure out what he is hiding. Olin was ANNOYING and immature. You just can’t be that oblivious. It made it very unrealistic to me. The audio was great no complaints there. I probably will get book 2 just because I love Pepper but the story was just ok.

Leaves You Hanging

Fantastic story, beautifully written and narrated but it leaves you hanging at the end, which I am not a fan of.
