Publisher's Summary

Ellis Renois is at the top of the fashion world and has built the Renois Company into a success that dominates the runways of the world. Ellis loves creating clothes, and she loves the beautiful women who wear them. While Ellis deals with design, she leaves the business aspect to others. It's a mistake that could cost her more than just her life's work.

Charlotte Hamner has worked her way through school and is ready to make a better life for herself and her daughter Sawyer. She's far from the teenaged mother who worked a string of dead-end jobs to fulfill her dreams, so she's not about to fall victim to Ellis's easy charm.

A summer job presents Charlotte with the chance to learn from Ellis, but it might also land her the position of head designer for Renois. But her promotion will come only through betrayal and perhaps at the cost of her heart.

Hard to follow.

Started this book because I like to read series, but I will not finish this series. Best part of the book was the end...literally the last 5 minutes. It was hard to follow and there was no distinct difference in the characters voices, couldn’t keep up with who was in the dialogue part of the book.

Excellent Book...AV does it again!

I am a die hard Ali Vali fan, so I did not hesitate to get this when I saw it available. to that point, I was not disappointed in her newest work. Love how her books always have that New Orleans twang, takes me back to my Louisiana days. All in all, the book was very good. I liked both main characters and even some of the secondary characters. AV's characters always have a bit of spunk, which is nice to watch unfold. The romance was sweet as usual. The plot was new for me, not being a fashionista, yet still enjoyable. The one thing that bothered me was the narrator. I've listened to this narrator before but this go round, it was so hard to distinguish the change in characters, it got confusing and a bit annoying at times. Overall tho, I would highly recommend this book.

And child makes three

A most lovely story with a witty voice of AJ Ferraro. A great book and with a nice twist to stick you in the gut. I loved the story from the eyes and voice of the artist. A must listen to.

Beauty

Not my favorite by AV. Decent plot, if a bit convoluted. Characters were ok, development felt incomplete. My biggest issue is with the narrator. Half the time I had no clue who was talking, making it hard to follow. Other voices were so whiney it was hard to keep listening to. I won't be buying and books with this narrator.

Good book..but....

Narrator needs some work. This book could've been so much better if narration was better.

Listen to this book!

Sure, not everyone cares about fashion, but there's not really f/f romance with this enviroment. AJ did a good job.
The story had all these plot twists that really kept me wondering and wanting to know what happened. Great book.
