An Action Packed, Sexy Standalone Romantic Comedy

When Cate, an overworked, under-appreciated property lawyer, decided on a weekly art class as a hobby, she had no idea that five of those weeks came with a sexy, nude male model. As a plus-size curvy girl, Joe was everything Cate told herself she didn't deserve in a man, especially his drop-dead gorgeous looks. When Joe becomes her hero after art class one day, Cate wonders how anyone that hot and sweet can be interested in her.

Joe has some

A very amazing book by Elise Noble. It has a very beautiful plot specially how it shows that it no matter who you are or what you are, there is someone will love you unconditionally. A must read book.

A great read.

Life .. this us a perfect title for this book. It starts out as a general girl meets both boy next door and sexy model at almost the same time but then rapidly becomes so much more than that. The characters are so real and like most people they have flaws and insecurities and secrets. I knew this would be good because Elise Noble is a genius with words and people but I was delighted when this book swept me up and didn't let go until the very last page. This stand alone novel is a

Absolutely delightful!

This book was a wee bit different from Elise's Blackwood series but clever, romantic and adventurous as always. Loved the cameo from my favorite female bad-ass thrown in amidst many new characters. A naked male model.. a crazy stalker, a brilliant but shy lawyer/artist who finds her girly balls and love...and chocolate...and moggies! I loved the comedic aspects omg..snort...I recommend!

"Life" is one of the sweetest story i have read
The is story is about Cate and Joe who complete each other
Cate is a sweetheart and Joe is equally sweet and their love story will melt your heart..
Elise's standalone story, "LIFE" is good as her blackwood series and you can see glimpse of DIAMOND in this book as well
Kudos and Thank you Elise.Elise Noble

I loved this

Twists and turns and insecurities and love and back stories that rock. This is my first book from this author and It looks like she doesnt normally write stories like this. Thats a shame because this was fantastic. Ill keep an eye on her , in case she does more. I would certainly read more. Heck, I would read more about Cate and her beautiful love.

I really loved these individual stories and the fact that some of the Blackwood characters were mentioned was a great treat for the reader.

I really really really liked this book! I loved the characters, the plot and the outcome. This book also discusses some issues in society that don't get talked about enough, so that added some interesting points to think about. I think that this book is an amazing addition to Elise's collection and that everyone will enjoy it immensely!!!

Absolutely love all of Elise Noble books. I was unable to put Life down. The characters and plot were interesting. I highly recommend getting your copy of Life as soon as released. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

Elise is an English rose with a few thorns who loves chocolate, sleep, and well-defined abs. Not hers, unfortunately.

She lives near London with a sexy chef, a horse who eats all her money, and a dog who eats her car keys. Always a reader, she took up writing after inspiration struck in an old manor house, and still pinches herself at the fact that people read her books. She spends her days
