Publisher's Summary

For his final series, New York Times best-selling author E. Lynn Harris introduced Bentley L. Dean, owner of the hottest modeling agency in Miami's sexy South Beach.

Only the world's most beautiful models make the roster of Picture Perfect Modeling agency, and they only do shoots for the most elite photographers and magazines. They are fashionista royalty - and the owners, Bentley L. Dean and his beautiful partner Alexandra, know it. But even Picture Perfect isn't immune from hard times; so when Sterling Sneed, a rich, celebrity party planner promises to pay a ridiculously high fee for some models, Bentley finds he can't refuse. Even though the job is not exactly a photo shoot, Bentley agrees to supply 15 gorgeous models as eye candy for an "A" list party - to look good, be charming and, well, entertain the guests. They don't have to do anything they don't want to, but....

His models are pros, and he figures they can handle the pressure - until one drops out and Bentley asks his protégé Jah, a beautiful kid who Bentley treats as if he were his own son, to substitute. Suddenly, the stakes are much higher, particularly when Jah falls in love with the hottest African American movie star in America. Seth Sinclair is very handsome, very famous, and very married - and his closeted gay life makes him very dangerous as well. Can Bentley's fatherly guidance save Jah from making a fatal mistake?

Terrible Narrators

I ignored the reviews that said the narrator was terrible. I should have headed the warnings, the narrator was so bad that I did not finish the book.

There has to be a Part 2

I love E. Lynn Harris books and this was no different. I liked that Bentley grew up learning to help those less fortunate and to treat people equally no matter their status. Bentley's modeling business is struggling until he takes a job suppling models to a well known millionaire that runs a secret society. Things get crazy from here, dragging his friend Jah along the way. Will Bentley be able to save Jah from the clutches of these dangerous men? The book left so many unanswered questions that makes me wonder was there a second book?

E Lynn Harris never disappoints

Once again my favorite author churned out another great read! This kept me on the edge the whole time. Although the narration was a bit off, the pitch was sometimes off it never took me away from the thrilling storyline

Great listen!

My only regret is that it ended too soon! I want to know what was done to the bad guys! Can there be a part 2 with Seth in an orange jumpsuit?

Couldn’t finish

I struggled through the first 2 hours before giving up. So many awkward pauses in the narration and then the voice overs, I just couldn’t. Perhaps this is an okay book but I just couldn’t get through it unfortunately.

What shame about the narrator

This was a really enjoyable read, but the narrator's halting monotonous reading was annoying, pausing in the middle of sentences as though unsure of the next word all done in a flat delivery as though recounting a decidedly uninteresting tale. It was a terrible injustice to what was otherwise a good read. I listened at 1.2 speed to improve on the narration. And the voice used for Jah makes it impossible to imagine him as an attractive young man when he sounds more like a nasal Stuart Little.

This was not one of E Lynn Harris’s best novels

I wasn’t impressed with this Novel, unfortunately characters and story had no real depth. Also, narrator within the audio version was extremely annoying in his depiction of a couple of the characters. I usually love E Lynn Harris’s books but this wouldn’t be one I will recommend.
