When we look at supermodels we don't see the imperfections, no we see how perfect the hair looks and the perfect shape of legs and lips, it's an endless list.

And of course we then take a look at the men in their lives and we can all immediately tell that they are with those perfect absolutely gorgeous men because of the way they look, most female readers will agree " I wish I looked like her so I can get a guy that looks like that " are the words that echo through your mind over and over.

So see...more

Great premise. Loved the originality of this story. What pulled it down for me was that the heroine had obviously had loads of intimate relationships for the hell of it so didn't think twice about wanting and having the hero and walking away...initially. Also all the freakin this and that which was in the dialogue made the speech styles too similar and the heroine sound common. Writing style I enjoyed apart from this. I have heard writers criticize 'head hopping' - jumping back and forward betwe...more

I loved this story! Ava was high sprited and Blake being an amputee, I didn't expect fireworks, buy boy was I surprised!

All readers are recommended to read this fantastic story!
Another surprisingly emotionally complex story inset in the strict tight parameters of a series romance. At first glance of this book, the story is about a haughty, self absorbed supermodel and a gruff man who lost a limb as a soldier came home to become a carpenter. But there is oh so much more to this story. I thought I would hate Ava but that is just a facade she shows the public. Blake carries so much more guilt over being the survivor when so many did not, so many still fight.

My favorite pa...more
Amy Andrews fait partie des auteures Harlequin qu’on attend à tout moment voir s’envoler vers d’autres cieux, des récits plus longs et plus travaillés. Mais ce qu’elle aprvient à faire avec ses petits formats est déjà très bon ; Elle échappe d’ailleurs à tous les stéréotypes du genre et vous oubliez rapidement qu’elle écrit dans la collection Azur ou Blanche.

Ce livre fait partie d’une collection de Mills&Boon, le Harlequin britannique qui se veut plus contemporaine et sexy et le livre tient...more

Fame and money come with a price attached.
The price is losing your privacy and the ability to walk around freely without a care in the world. If you’re famous every step you take is bound to end up in the press. A simple friendly gesture between two people can become the illicit affair of two lovebirds tomorrow.
The paparazzi just want to sell a story to make a quick buck, so they aren't that interested in the truth, facts or whether or not they destroy someone with their printed rumours.
The ma...more

I really enjoyed this! I’ve read some of Amy’s novels before and she’s really excelled in this one!

Blake is an ex-soldier, and has worked hard to try and get his life together after his days at war. Together with his brother they have a building company for high-end clients, such as Ava Kelly. Supermodel Ava is more used to luxury yachts than canal boats. But when shots are fired and Blake saves her life, Ava realises she desperately needs refuge, and Blake’s canal boat is the perfect place to h...more

All of us have run across a diva in our lives who appear haughty, self absorbed and totally lacking in emotions for their fellow man. Usually more down to earth people have suffered their presence, dealt with their idiosyncrasies and moved on. Only once in a while an event will happen when these people are around each other and we will see below the public surface of each one and catch a glimpse of the people are underneath. They may be the same all the way through or surprise you with warm comp...more

I’m the Chick Lit and Erotica reporter (read obsessive) for a feminist webzine, and so I‘m always really interested in how women are portrayed in romance novels (Modern Tempted heroines always being of the driven, sassy and awesome type). But it’s always good when someone challenges the archetypical male hero stereotype.

Amy Andrews does just this in The Most Expensive Night of Her Life. Her very alpha male hero (ex-army - *swoon*; rugged - *swoon*) is also an amputee. But more astonishing than h...more
Ava, a top fashion model & Blake, a carpenter & ex-soldier have a temporary seclusion away from the paparazzi on his boat, as he is hiding her from a shooter. Needless to say, they get very close, but her reality sets back in when the shooter is caught. These 2 go back & forth, with Blake mostly fighting the love. This is a satisfying read with a great HEA!

She's a well known model, he's a wounded warrior.

Blake has returned from the war to start a renovation company with his brother. One of his jobs is for a model whom he has no trouble ignoring until the night his job is over. Then circumstances and his need to protect bring them in close contact for a while, during which Ava is able to change his mind about her.

Full of sexual encounters, which brought my rating down, but story wise it was pretty good.
Ava Kelly is beautiful AND famous. Blake Walker is beautiful, anonymous and an ex-soldier. No, he was not hired to protect her, but he works in design with his brother and his latest client is the supermodel in question.

She is beautiful but extremely high maintenance, spoiled and borderline rude. Yet, he is attracted to her somehow. This is the only part of the plot that I didn't really like, despite the efforts of the author to defend Ava's way, it is still not clear why she had to act the way...more
Review Posted on

Blake Walker knows how to do a lot of things. He’s great at keeping a schedule, he’s a perfectionist when it comes to woodworking, and he has a bit of experience with flying bullets. Ava Kelly, supermodel and diva wasn’t something he’d planned to deal with when his renovation job was over. Read More

"This emotional tribute to war veterans is quickly paced with the right balance of tender moments and passionate sparks between the heroine with trust issues and the hero wracked with guilt." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars
Rating 3.5 stars

Enjoyed reading about a book in which the heroine was a bit spoiled and open to a fling while the hero was more reticent.

I loved the glamorous heroine- a model slumming it without throwing tantrums and then she starts the seduction of the hero!

Loved the story!
Can't wait to read this just preordered it!
