Sexiest Man Alive
(Knight Fashion #1)
by M. Clarke
Nathan Cross is a struggling actor waiting tables at a local restaurant to make ends meet while he attends endless auditions. Though his hopeful career moves at a slow pace, Olivia is the strength and sunshine in his life… until she leaves him. One day, he is offered a contract with a modeling agent, leading him to work for Knight Fashion Magazine—a dream job he never imagined would become a reality.
Olivia swore she would always put her career first and that’s precisely what she did when she left Nathan. Having a deadbeat dad and watching her mom work two jobs to make ends meet have been her driving force. When she is offered a modeling career, she drops everything—even the love of her life—and moves to New York.
Though Nathan and Olivia try to steer clear of one another, working for the same fashion magazine causes their paths to cross again and old emotions are awakened. Can Nathan forgive Olivia or will he take the next step with the woman he is currently dating? Will Olivia do everything she can to break them apart? Or will she choose her career over her heart… again?
In this first book of the Knight Fashion series by M. Clarke we meet Nathan and Olivia who have been a couple...well until Olivia moves away and puts her career before everything even the man that loves her more than anything. I have to say that I had a HUGE dislike for her once she did that. Nate was a great guy, he always tried to do the right thing even when it was hard for him.
During this journey we see how Nate and Olivia interact with one another as a former couple, it was interesting to see them establish a working relationship as well as a friendly one even though they were still interested in being with the other person. I have to say that some hurts cut really deep and it will take a lot to get over so don't expect things to be worked out right away, it's a long slow process....and there are no guarantees.
Although I have several of M. Clarke's books on my goodreads TBR shelf this is the first book I have read of hers and I look forward to reading more of her work.
