This is pretty much a standard romance. Talented photographer who has been "done wrong" by a male model she fell for; meets new even handsomer male model; can't get past feeling she's being taken advantage of again. The dance of "I want to, but what if I get hurt, so I won't" leads to frustration for the guy, a long period of heavy petting and his demands that she be honest with him. And, of course, as the title implies they decide to forsake all others and be together forever.
A good read for the beach or vacation (I read it camping) because it's light, fun and predictable. Spencer creates gorgeous women characters, good-looking leading men with tons of integrity and interesting settings. This will never be great literature, but sometimes it's exactly what you want to read.

LaVyrle Spencer offers here one of her most beloved stories about a woman who must look past the surface to see true beauty within. A+ romance novel.

A nice, light read, but a little dated. The initial flirting is wonderful to read. It just doesn't maintain that light-hearted, delightful tone throughout the rest of the book.

This novella is dedicated to fellow-author Dorothy Garlock, It is s contemporary story about an extremely attractive male who falls in love with an up-and-coming photographer. The only problem is that the photographer was betrayed by a previous live-in male model.

On the surface, the couple seems to have little in common. However, when Rick tells Allison that her photographs breathe and make the person looking at the photos sense smell, the reader knows that he is also an artist.

I prefer the author's Americana books, but appreciate this for what it is, a love story.
