Summary

"Engagingly and intelligently written, this absorbing novel should work as catnip to fashion-obsessed readers."--Kirkus Reviews

Eve's time as a fashion model nearly destroyed her -- now she's determined to build a career behind the camera lense. But landing a coveted photography internship brings her face to face with her dark past -- just as she's falling for hot male model Alex.

Eve had it all--emphasis on had. She was a rising star with a modeling contract destined to catapult her to celebrity...until the devastating night when she walked away from everything, everyone in her life. Eve's worked hard to put her troubled past behind her, and photography's given her a fresh start. She just never thought her dream internship would force her back into the industry that broke her trust and her heart.

Alex is a regular, good guyfrom Nebraska, but as an up-and-coming model, he's learning that appearances are everything. The fake relationship Alex's agent concocted for Alex and his underage costar? That'll land them both the hot jobs. But Alex hadn't counted on falling for Eve, the girl behind the camera.

With careers and love on the line, Eve and Alex are about to prove you may want what you can't have--but sometimes it's worth the risk.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "After model Eve's sleazy agent took advantage of her, she disappeared from the scene, seeking recuperation. College has helped her focus on the other side of the lens, and now an internship offers her a chance to start over in the business she so recently fled. Eve has doubts about plunging back into the dark corners of the fashion industry, but when she meets newcomer Alex, she feels like she has seen his story play out before in her own life. Cross teams up with model and industry insider Perini to bring the steamy, soapy, provocative world of modeling to life, asking readers to consider the price of fame. A staged relationship between Alex and his costar will make many teens question the veracity of their favorite celebrity couples, and pulses will quicken as Alex and Eve narrate their stories in alternating chapters, spiraling ever closer to each other. A behind-the-scenes look at modeling mixed with romantic tension.--Howerton, Erin Downey Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Nineteen-year-old Eve Nowakowski-once an up-and-coming teen supermodel known as Eve Castle-abandoned that career for college at Columbia and a future in photography. While shadowing a famous photographer, Eve is unexpectedly thrust back into the industry she left behind. Meanwhile, Alex Evans, the male model of the moment, is paired up for a photo shoot with Elana, an underage French model; Alex's sleazy, predatory agent (who dated Eve when she was underage herself) expects him to fake a romance-or have an actual one-with Elana for publicity. As Eve follows her artistic dreams, Alex stumbles through a modeling career he doesn't love while trying to pursue a clandestine relationship with Eve. Cross (the Tempest series) and Perini (a model making his debut as an author) zip between the perspectives of Eve and Alex in fast-paced, play-by-play scenes, with multiple conflicts that threaten to derail their romance. Eve and Alex's integrity in the face of ethical dilemmas, combined with the book's commentary on the exploitation of young models, adds dimension to this love story. Ages 14-up.
