Supermodel Francine is the sexiest woman alive, and she just found her fiance cheating on her. A tipsy conversation about her erotic fantasies brings about the sexual encounter of her dreams.
Having withdrawn from society life, Grant seizes the chance to dominate the woman he's lusted after for years. But afterward, Grant must again deal with the spotlight when Francine's ex strikes back at her publicly. Can they overcome life's obstacles to make fantasy reality?
I have a confession, as the prequel to last year’s Beck and Call, this is a book that made me excited for the New Year. And I have to say it didn't disappoint.
Grant Franklin falls for Francine Lincoln the first time he sees her in a tantalizing magazine ad. Unfortunately Grant believes that Francine will never like his darker tastes. This changes when his friends meet Francine drowning her sorrows over her cheating boyfriend at a bar, and she divulges her darkest fantasy. Grant calls Francine and gives her the opportunity to live out her fantasy for 24 hours.
Ms. Gordon's Model Fantasy is a “Harlequin Presents meets BDSM”. Grant Franklin is your classic hero: good looking, rich, and successful. Beyond a Harlequin hero, Grant Franklin is a dominant. Reading about him simply made me drool. Francine is a stunning model and although she's rich, she hasn't been corrupted by her success. Francine embodies an untouchable innocence that is her true beauty. Grant and Francine combine to create a couple you truly care about. The climactic ending was a bit corny, but it totally had me gushing.
Ms. Gordon created a sensually-charged romance with domination and submission. It is simply erotic. I totally bought that Grant and Francine fell in love in the first 24 hours they spent together. I would class the BDSM elements as more on the light side. Although there is spanking and whipping, everything Grant does to Francine is for her pleasure. This is not a novel where submission is proven by how much pain the submissive can absorb from the dominant. Instead the domination and submission is based in pleasure and beyond erotic. Ms. Gordon's writing represents the sensual best of what BDSM can achieve in romance.
Both Grant and Francine have friends in Model Fantasy. I must confess that I'm both curious and excited to see how their friends’ relationships will pan out. However it seems like there were just a few too many supporting characters in this novel. Sometimes it felt like the supporting characters were there to set up new novels, instead of enhancing Grant and Francine’s story. After saying this though, I can't wait to read their stories.
Model Fantasy is a wonderfully erotic book with a hero and heroine you’ll love, detailed sex, and a melodic voice. Abby Gordon has become one of my “must read” authors.
