Never get involved with a man who is competing for the same job as you.

It's a bad idea. Obviously...
And no, not even if the man is a complete dead ringer for Brad Pitt/Thor.
No, not even if he’s an irresistible, charming sex god with his panty-melting smile and the sexy James Bond English accent to sweep you off your feet.
Off Limits.
That’s what that guy is.

Off! Limi

This is an amazing romance. The storyline is well-written, steamy, has drama, chemistry, two developed characters who are artists vying for the same job after having had a drunken one night stand. The interactions between these two are engaging and engrossing. Fabulous epilogue! I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review.

You shouldn’t go out the night before a big interview to drown your sorrows over a best friend who betrayed you because you never know who you might wake up next to the following morning. He might be the guy or girl who is also in competition for your position at work and it might be the start of something amazing. This is Jia and Hunters story. Jia being jilted by a supposed best friend who basically gave her savings away to her flavor of the week who ran away with it all. Hunter

The two have each come to a bar in LA to get drunk to stifle the pain they were currently experiencing. They did spend the night together, but Jia sneaks out the next morning and can't remember much.

Amazing and bold, a love story

Art of Love by Khardine Gray is an exceptionally well written and wonderful love story. Well worth five stars and more!
There isn't a thing about this book that I did not love. Jia and Hunter captured my heart from the beginning and their story captivated and held my attention from the beginning. These characters are very well developed and realistic with emotional depth. I also really enjoyed that this story's focus is all about their love for each other. It's strai

Art you glad this romance was just a brush stroke away!
I love art. Doing it. Looking at it. Reading about it. And, storylines about it. Thanks to author, Khardine Gray's Art of Love, I was able to spend some lovely hours immersed in the art world. The main characters, Jia and Hunter are artists who start out as competitors vying for a three year internship with a famous artist, John at his gallery, Impasso. However the longer they must spend time together the more in common they have. But, will

He had the looks and the body of a god which made it hard for her to look away. one night of erotic romance was all it was suppose to be and when she sneaked away that was it.

They both want the spot, but as they let heir walls down and start to let each other in, that spot isn't ...more

I couldn't put this down. I had to read the whole thing in one sitting. I freaking loved it. Crazy hook up , trying to dodge out the next morning only to find out... surprise!! You have to work with him. There was a lot in this story. Besides the crazy hook up, family drama, messy break ups, death, and just dealing with life. There was a little of everything but not in a bad way. Just something that everyone can identify with. I had to laugh a lot thru this. The english slang was a crack up.

Jia meets Hunter in a bar initially and spends the night with him. They meet again the following day when they both turn up at an art gallery to compete with each other for the same intern job over the next few months. Hunter needs the job to prove to his father that he is a talented artist. Jia, having been robbed of her savings, needs the money from the job to support herself and get her niece through college. An unusual and interesting storyline with some humour and hot chemistry between Jia ...more

Khardine Gray is a creative writer who differentiates her story lines by choosing unique characters and bringing them together. In this case, Jia and Hunter are both artists pursuing an apprenticeship with a world-renowned artist. They've both had challenges in their lives they've had to overcome, especially Jia, and getting this job would signify overcoming adversity for both of them. But their biggest challenge is competing for the same job while trying to resist the incredible attraction betw ...more

The story sucked me in from the very first moment and wouldn’t let go of me until I finished the book. Jia and Hunter’s crazy drunken encounter starts us on an emotional roller-coaster ride. A ride that’s all about understanding your own value and that of the people around you. The British slang was a world of fun, but this pair made me sigh over their sweetness even more times than I giggled at Hunter’s language.
I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

Wow what a wonderful book that took us right to the heart of the issues. Jia and Hunter are so much alike but different, they give us the opposite attract thing. They prove that no matter what's going on in your life love will always be the main joy and keep you going. I truly loved this book and recommend it. I give it 5 stars. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book as an Advanced Reader's Copy

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. I really enjoyed this book. It was different from anything I have read lately. So very refreshing. Hunter and Jia meet at a bar when they are both having the worst day ever. The next morning they find out they are competing for a job with a famous artist. Can they keep their growing feeling separate from the job they are both trying to get? I would definitely recommend this book.

A one night stand turns awkward. The morning after, Jia sneaks out for a job interview to find Hunter also applying! They are required to spend a lot of time together and work together as part of the interview. This was an enjoyable read but a storyline that has been read before.

My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.

A one night stand turns into a very awkward meet and greet the next morning when these two people are vying for the same art internship. Will Jia and Hunter be able to move forward without any animosity towards each other? Can they put their feelings aside and work together or will this bring them closer together? All those questions can be answered by reading the book.
