The moment I heard Ryders voice I was a goner.

As a photographer, I was used to working with beautiful people, but Ryder Williams was the most perfect male specimen that had ever stood before me. I knew without a doubt it would take no time at all for him to be the next big thing... or for him to steal my heart.

Model and photographer, we shouldnt cross that line, but

The Model is book two in the Love is Blind series by Harlow Layne. This book can be read as a stand alone. I have read the first book in the series, Intern, and enjoyed it so much but you don't need to have read it to enjoy this book. I would call this an insta/lust/love age gap romance.

I love it when a book surprises me and Harlow Layne does that with The Model. I cannot wait to go back and read The Intern book one in Layne's Love is Blind series.

Ryder and Lexi were amazingly perfect! Their chemistry and attraction is intense and jumps off of every page. And Ryder and Lexi are the perfect example of how love is blind, or age is just a number. Lexi and Ryder meet on a photoshoot and from there the rest is history. Ryder is the drop dead gorgeous young model, and Lexi is the

This book was absolutely fantastic. I thought the story line was great and the suspense that this author brings to the story line will have you biting your nails at the edge of your seat. This authors writing is fabulous and I really enjoyed reading this book and I read it in one sitting and it definitely deserves all it's five stars.

Lexie is a super talented fashion photographer and is extremely independent. She is very beautiful and has loads of confidence. She is very unique in her own right

Oh I loved Lexie and Ryder!
Harlow Layne has really written a good Younger Man / Older Woman Romance, it's so hard to get the balance right and she pulled it off perfectly- it didn't feel forced or their ages over played, it was fab!
Lots of steam with a good engaging storyline.
I'm sure it will do very well!

This is book 2 in the Love is Blind series and can be read as a standalone. OW/YM romance and I am all for it. Lexie and Ryder were so good together. They have an insane chemistry between them and I loved them together. You will be sucked into their story from page one and you wont be able to put it down until you see the last page. Highly recommend this story. I will be going back and reading book 1 in this series. Cant wait to read more from this author.

This second book in the Love Is Blind series is an older woman/younger man romance. I enjoyed their instant attraction. The way author Harlow Layne wrote the characters, especially the main characters, Lexie and Ryder, were great! I was impressed by how he was more mature and how even though she was older she was still young at heart. I loved the set-up of this book and the way it all wrapped up in the end. I thought their meet-ups were fun. This book had heat, heart, and a secondary crime ...more

I cant get enough of Lexie!! It typically takes me a little while to like the heroine of a story but in this case I liked her instantly! She was like a colorful fireball that draws you immediately. Lexie and Ryder meet when shes his photographer and hes instantly blown away by everything about her so after the shot is wrapped and they end back back in each others orbit again both is more then happy about it. This story had more facets then just the romance and I cant wait to read more from ...more

you do not need to do pillow-talk when this story can leave crumple in your bed-sheet with adrenaline gushing loud inside.

Harlow Layne is a superb writer undoubtedly to captivate the readers and it is once again done but this time with 'The Model (Love is Blind #2)"

The sweat of ecstasy is sweet and it is proved by Harlow Layne in which crisscross of desire and desperation is highlighted so intensely.

A must keep in the collection for those readers who are fond of this genre of books.

This is the second ARC of Harlow I got to read and let me just tell you, I am one of her biggest fans now!!

If you've read one of my previous book reviews, I know you're going to think it so let Fat Amy you and say it before you can do it - I am a hypocrite!

I'm not a fan of people ripping each other's clothes off in the first chapter! I like it when they get to know each other for a while and then the sexual tension builds and builds and then they can't control it anymore!

Well in Lexie and

The Model by Harlow Layne was my most anticipated read of 2020! I had the highest of expectations and even higher hopes before reading this book. All I can say is Harlow smashed all my hopes out of the park and exceeded all my expectations. I got hooked from Chapter 1, yes the very first chapter! This book is so damn sexy and Harlow doesnt withhold any of that from you. She gives you all the goods right from chapter one. Don't be fooled, the sexiness doesnt stop there! She continues to deliver ...more

Talk about a rollicking ride! Ryder and Lexie have instant chemistry, but they have terrible luck and timing. After a lust at first sight meeting, chance brings them together again, which works out spectacularly for Ryder, since he hasnt been able to get the woman of his dreams out of his head for months. Of course, life and some serious spite from someone who should be a lot less ugly on the inside (or a lot more on the outside to match her innards) cause a painful separation for them. Once ...more

This is a story about an older woman, who is young for her age, and a younger man, who is old for his age. She is a well renowned photographer and he just happens to start his career with a photo shoot with her. She knows he's going to make it big and they become "friends". They both have crazy, busy careers and soon find out that relationships are hard work. Can they make theirs work? You'll have to read this book to find out.

This is my first Harlow Layne book and I found it enjoyable and entertaining. I look forward to reading more of her books.

I truly loved the premise of the storyline. I love a reverse age gap, its always nice to see an older woman with a younger man at times. I also loved that it was an office romance with a hint of the forbidden. What took me by surprise was the suspenseful aspect of the storyline, I wasnt expecting that at all. I
This was a awesome read that was fun flirty and a whole lot of fun.This story was filled with romance from the very first pages to the very end.I loved the characters they we so easy to love.Ryder was a such a sweetheart also kind and caring and compassionate and sexy as sin a man who might be younger but, acted like a man who had years of experience especially when it came to women.

I loved Lexie who was smart and sexy and driven and at the top of her craft but, when it came to her personal

Its not every day the age gap trope is written with a younger man/older woman concept, so I was very much intrigued by that. Im happy to report that Harlow Layne did an excellent job with Ryder and Lexie and their story! I never really felt their age-gap at all. Ryder was very mature for his age. The conflict of this story stemmed more from outside drama rather than drama between them and that was refreshing as well! Excellent job all around! ...more

Such an amazing read, full of off the chart hotness and a love story that builds and makes you believe that true love really exists . . . And is never easy!

From the very first page, I loved Lexi! She is real, from her tats and piercing to her attitude. And then there's the model. . . Well what can I say. . . Hot hot hot and makes me want to be a photographer just so I can meet someone just like Ryder! I felt the lust, the passion, the

The first thing that grabs you is this absolutely beautiful cover. Once you flip to the first page you quickly realize that this beauty runs deep. Harlow delivers yet another reverse age gap winner. Little time is wasted as Ryder and Lexie connect immediately and their chemistry runs hot and deep. A mentally unstable ex-boyfriend appears to present challenge after challenge for the pair. This couple is put through test after test and Harlow is a master in tugging at the heartstrings. What a ...more

Fans of the older woman/younger man theme will find themselves captivated by this decadently delicious romance of 32 year old Lexie Keene and 21 year old model du jour Ryder Williams as its full of sweet sentiments while teeming with scorching sexual encounters. In a case of instalove, these two are immediately drawn to each other and undergo a rocky journey full of self-doubts and danger from her ex that kept me turning the pages frantically. While much about their journey felt familiar, the ...more

When professional, experienced photographer, Lexie, sees the gorgeous new model, Ryder, who's to be in today's shoot, she's suddenly affected by this Adonis of a man. It's unusual for her to be so attracted to a model, as she works with the most beautiful people in the world all day long and doesn't give them a second glance beyond photographing them. But there's something extra about Ryder that she can't get past. And when they end up in bed that first day, she still can't get him out of her

I really enjoyed this book, I always like a good age gap romance and when it's an older woman and younger man, it's even better for me. I loved the sexual chemistry between Ryder and Lexie, the way they were together not only sexually but in the way he worshipped the ground she walked on. The way she looked at him like he hung the moon. Their first encounter was a catalyst for a truly beautiful love story.

I did get a little antsy. I wanted things to move along a bit quicker in some

Yes, yes, yes! Harlow Layne has gone and made me fall in love with her writing all over again with her latest book, The Model. Its book two in her interconnected stand-alone series, Love is Blind and was in love from chapter one!

Lexie is 32 and a successful photographer. Ryker is 21 year old, up-and-coming fashion model. When they meet for the first time in her studio during a photoshoot theres instant chemistry even if its just through Lexies camera lens. After the photo shoot their spark

The Model is the first book I've read by Harlow Layne, and I already have Fairlane book one on my Kindle. the Model!! Could Ryder be more adorable? I'm asking now because I think the answer is no. And Lexie is what I want to be when I grow up. She's cool, she's confident (mostly), and she's crazy talented.

I wasn't sure where this story was going because it got off to a scorching start. Not that I mind that, but I was thinking, where are we going from here? Harlow did not
