Melissa reviews Capture The Sun by Meredith Russell & R.J. Scott Published July 29th 2014 by Love Lane Books, 105 pages.
Model, Isaac Bailey wants to break into the world of fashion design. Under his father’s company name, he is set to debut his new collection—summer wear. He has the models, the clothes, what he needs is a location.
Mitch Stone is a trouble shooter. His latest client needs an exotic location and he happens to know someone with the very thing—Sapphire Cay. Having underestimated Isaac as nothing more than an airhead model, Mitch soon discovers there is much more to the young man than he first thought.
As the fashion shoot gets underway, Mitch has to contend with his feelings for his old love, Dylan, and the very new and growing affections he has for Isaac. What starts as just another job, turns out to be more fruitful and exhilarating than winning any multi-million dollar contract.
A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.
Why I read this: The blurb sounded cute and the book had high reviews already.
If you enjoy insta-obsession followed by insta-love, this book is for you! Isaac Bailey is a former model now turned fashion designer, and one night while he attends a party he meets Mitch Stone. Isaac doesn’t know anything about Mitch, and in fact when they are first introduced Mitch turns Isaac away. But later on that night, Mitch changes his mind and Isaac and Mitch spend a very enthusiastic night together. Once morning comes, Mitch – despite liking Isaac in bed (they didn’t speak all night so he couldn’t have loved him for his mind, lol) – decides he won’t pursue spending more time with the other man.
What Isaac doesn’t know if that for his upcoming photo shoot to advertise his clothing designs, Mitch is going to play troubleshooter and they are stuck on an island together where passion explodes. As I said before, this is an insta-love story which I personally didn’t understand because the characters didn’t spend nearly enough time together to really know each other. They let their hormones do the thinking for them.
The writing itself was fine, but the story and character development was not for me. But, I do know this type of story appeals to other readers and for that I say go for it. The characters were sweet and I didn’t hate seeing these guys get their HEA; we all want one of those. 😀 On the good side, there wasn’t drama for drama sake. I was waiting for the MCs to have a big misunderstanding at the end which would cause them to yell and break up but then have a magical reunion. Thankfully that didn’t happen. And for that reason I can give this 6 pots.
