Review: Model Love by S.J. Frost

Struggling to come to terms with his grief and guilt over his twin brother’s death, Ian feels he’s living in a world devoid of color. He once rode the highs of success and fame as a model, but he lost everything when his brother died suddenly. When his former agent invites him to Bora Bora, Ian accepts with the hope of finding color in his dark world.

Temaru owns a diving shop in Bora Bora. As he walks along the beach at sunset, he sees a beautiful man sitting in the white sand. Deeply attracted to Ian, he wants nothing more than to help him recover his confidence.

Lust, desire and emotions run high between them. Ian feels the man he used to be slowly returning, guided by Temaru’s gentle touch. But Temaru will have his hands full with Ian’s overwhelming grief

Ian has fallen far. From stardom all the way down to the bottom of the food chain. Waiter. After his twin’s death and the fact that Ian feels that it’s his fault that Aiden is dead he feels that he doesn’t deserve better anyway. When presented with the chance to go catch some Vitamin D rays in Bora Bora he is at first, quite reluctant. But his old manager and what he soon discovers close friends draw him out of the shell and into the sun.

After letting himself go the last thing he expects is the ever so handsome local Temaru hitting on him. But he does. Shocked, a little pleased and just the tiniest bit flattered Ian decides it’s time to give himself a makeover. Not just on the outside but maybe on the inside too. Now the question remains on whether this new Ian can forgive himself and look to the future – a promising future with a brand spanking new career and a very loyal partner – or stay in the past where the shadows threaten to pull him under.

Throughout the entire story my heart was breaking for Ian. To carry that type of guilt around cannot be easy but the author portrayed it in such a way that I nearly felt it myself. From the character that he was to the character that he now is you cannot help but feel the need to take him by the shoulders and tell him that he isn’t the same person anymore.

Temaru is a brilliant character. A little too perfect at times – because let’s face it. No one man is so selfless and sweet. Even if we REALLY want them to be. Never the less I really fell in love with him. He worked amazing miracles with Ian’s broken heart.

This was a beautiful love story. YES there was enough passion in it to sustain a roaring fire all winter long – but there was also enough caring, tenderness and love to keep a girls heart beating for ten winters long.
