I received an ARC/ACE of “Behind The Lens” by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Twenty-three year old model Charley Whitlock built a quiet
life for herself after disaster struck four years ago. She hides beneath her
beautiful mask, never revealing her true self to the world... until she comes
face-to-face with her new photographer — sexy, possessive Jude Anderson. It's
clear from the first time she meets him that she's playing by his rules. He
says jump, she asks how high. He tells her to unzip her cream Dior gown; she
knows she has to comply. But what if she wants him to take charge outside of
the studio as well?
Jude Anderson has a strict "no model" dating
policy. But everything about Charley sets his body on fire.
When a tropical photo shoot in Hawaii forces the stubborn
pair into sexually charged situations, their chemistry can no longer be
ignored. They’ll have to decide if they’re willing to break their rules and
leave the past behind or if they’ll stay consumed by their demons forever.

feel connected. The personalities of Charley and Jude were well thought out and
constructed. Having this story told in the POVs (point of views) of Charley and
Jude further connected me to these characters. WARNING: You will definitely fall head over heels for Jude, as he seems
to be the complete package. He’s a perfect concoction of arrogance, possessiveness,
compassion, complexity and sex. And you will also adore and sympathize with
Charley, the modest beauty who can completely relax and truly just “be” only with
If I had to choose my favorite moment of “Behind His Lens”,
I would pick the club scene. HOT, HOT, HOT! DID I MENTION THAT SCENE WAS HOT?
LOL! OMG, the attraction between these two simply cannot be ignored on either
of their accounts, no matter how much they fight it, feel they don’t deserve it,
or attempt to run away from it.
I WILL MISS CHARLEY AND JUDE!
This book was a pleasure to read and one that I intend on recommending
