As a lover of the Arts I devoured Drawing Closer, an intense, passionate and fast paced story that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Zoe is a painter and sketcher who shares space with her close friend and sculptor Nick. They've reached a point in their lives where they need to explore the feelings each is harboring for the other but they're interrupted

I loved the characters. They were believable and extremely likable I loved the main setting being their work space. I loved the threat that

Art has never been sexier that this really fun, sexy and passionate read from a define great author. I loved the touch that Zoe is secretly in love with sculptor Nick and yes as reader I know the "secretly in love " thing has been done a number of times but trust me ladies not like this!

Zoe is a great sketch artist and inside her sketchbook she hides not only her talent so to speak but also her secret and very naked obsession with Nick.

Yes you did read correctly I said naked obsession and this i

It's quality, not quantity that counts, according to traditional wisdom. In today's fast moving world, shorter reads are more and more in demand. This novelette from Jenny Schwartz is a perfect example of a power packed read and a satisfying story in a few short, well written chapters. Every moment of reading this is a joy.

Jenny Schwartz engages the reader at the outset with an intriguing premise, but that's not the half of it. The characters are attractive and identifiable and the action is und

This was a very quick read and a nice little romance. A friends to lovers romance, this is the story of artist Zoe and her studio partner, clay sculptor Nick. Just when it looks like Nick might finally make a move, one of his trouble making ex-girlfriends turns up with an eye for blackmail. How it is resolved makes a nice background for the growing awareness between Zoe and Nick.
This is part of the new Escape Digital line and the story is less than sixty percent of the downloaded material. The r

He releído esta historia tantas veces. Me encanta Nick y me encanta Zoe. Me encanta que ambos se respeten tanto como para no dar el primer paso ya que ambos son conscientes de lo que tienen en juego, me encanta como su historia comienza a desarrollarse porque pasan cosas ajenas a ellos y tienen que mover sus fichas para llegar el uno al otro.

This was a fun novella that had me rooting for the heroine the entire time. The interplay between the h/H was believable, and I'm always a sucker for "in love with my best friend's sister" plots. The end does come a little fast after the introduction of the fantastic villainess, but is still emotionally satisfying. If you're looking for a quick read, you should definitely pick this one up!

Corta pero linda. A éste lo llamo uno de esos dulces de la tarde que a veces necesita mi vida. Me hubiera gustado que tuviera más descripción y narración para sentirme más en la historia, pero de resto, la disfruté supongo. Me sentí que tenía tiempo sin leer un beso apasionado así. Lindo.
