Rereleased today, on 23 September 2015, The Model is published by Dreamspinner Press.

It is the story of successful fashion model Fabio Bonardi after he discovers his first wrinkle. He is tired of the loneliness and drama of the modeling world after ten years, so he enlists shy financial advisor, Edwin Zachary, to help him start a business. Edwin is the first man who sees something beyond a pretty face in Fabio, and the connection between them is immediate and surprisingly deep. But insecurity, f

Okay, first off, the dude's name is Fabio. Secondly, he's worried about getting old at 28? (Or is that just a model thing?)

I'm sorry, but this entire thing...I don't think I can take it seriously. (Oh, woe is me. I haz wrinkle *sob).
Man, I really want some shrimp cocktail like you wouldn't believe...

Oh, and the other dude's name is Edwin.

And then, awwwww Fabio cares about what's inside.
Jussayin, but the cover's kind of weird. I kind of pictured Fabio more...buff and stuff.
Oooor I'm just project

It's been said that love is blind, but I disagree. I believe that love's vision is the clearest of all. Since love sees with the heart, it has access to a person's true essence, sometimes beyond what one can see in themselves. Love gently shines a light on these qualities and allows them to grow into a full-fledged joining of the minds, as well as the hearts. Fabio Bonardi and Edwin Zachary of 'The Model' by Serena Yates have the capacity to love each other with this kind of understanding, but t ...more

Released on November 26, this is the sixth book in my Workplace Encounters series; inspired by men meeting at work - but still definitely staying away from the so-called office romance. This series looks at all types of workplace, even the occasional office may play a role, but the 'romance part' is guaranteed not to take place there.

This story is about Alessandro, a famous fashion model with the perfect body, who despairs about finding love. People never look beyond his appearance, so how is he

Another fun and entertaining read. It's well written and plotted, have nicely developed characters who seem like real people and a happily ever after I found satisfying. I liked these guys. They had their issues to work through... especially Edwin, who has some serious trust problems, but Ms. Yates handled their emotional uncertainty well. The same goes for getting them together and expressing their passion and desire.

Then there's the stalker. It's a little cliche but not unexpected for Fabioi'

I bought this before the new cover came out and it's a perfect fit. Light, airy, and if you don't mind the insta-love and usual late arrival of potential disaster, it's a sweet bridge between heavier tomes. Like this series very much.

3.5 Heart Review by Kat

The Model is the second Workplace Encounters story by Serena Yates that I have read and reviewed. I have to say, I enjoy these quick and fun reads. They each take you inside a new industry, where you get to experience the inter-workings of the job, as well as encountering a new romance.

Fabio Bonardi is an extremely famous and “It” model known as Alessandro. The opening scene is Fabio discovering a wrinkle at the corner of his eye that in his mind is the beginning of the en

"Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?” Well, in this case, it’s not Snow White, but Fabio Bonardi, a very successful fashion model. But Fabio is just not a pretty face, he actually has a brain as well and when his first wrinkle appears at the ripe old age of 28 and he reflects on the past ten years of modelling – the ups/downs of this cut-throat business and mostly, his own isolation, he knows it’s time to move on. He always knew that this day was going to come and that’s why ...more

2.5 stars

I love reading the series (and other Serena's books), but not this one.

What I like:
- The issue that the author picked fits the characters' life: fanatic fan, stalker, etc. This justified the series' title that deals with various occupations.
- Edwin declining Fabio after the first date, which set up the tone of their relationship, i.e., unlike other men Fabio deals with, Edwin is capable to say no.
- Serena's writing always flows nicely

What I don't like:
- (view spoiler)

Fabio is trying to make decisions for his future and Edwin is just the man to help him with his planning. It was great to see two seemingly opposites become attracted to each other. Both of them seemed surprised by the attractions.

I’m a night owl and start writing when everyone else in my time zone is asleep. I’ve loved reading all my life and spent most of my childhood with my nose buried in a book. Although I always wanted to be a writer, financial independence came first. Twenty-some years and a successful business career later I took some online writing classes and never looked back.
