The moment I heard Ryder’s 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 shouldn’t cross that line, but there was no stopping the passion we felt. Nothing else mattered. Not the age difference. Not that he was a client. Not even our pasts.
After my assistant caught us together, he was gone. I tried to put him out of my head, until fate threw him back into my life and my bed.
Time and time again we’re brought together, should I keep fighting or finally accept what my heart wants?
When I was with Lexie, it was like being with my best friend even though we barely knew each other.
ARC REVIEW ➼
If reverse age gaps are your jam then you’ll definitely want to check out The Model! This isn’t my first read from Harlow Layne, however, it is hands down my favorite read! From the very first page I was completely sucked into the whirlwind romance of Lexie and Ryder and it was a wild ride I never wanted to end.
Lexie is a well-known photographer, she owns her own business, she a strong woman, and gorgeous with her blue hair, tattoos and piercings. She see’s the beauty in everything, except she doesn’t see her owner inner and outer beauty. Ryder is a young model, looking to make a name for himself and to help his family out. He’s got the model good lucks….EVERYWHERE. He doesn’t act is age, he is on a whole different maturity level than most people. He’s a gentleman and there is much more to him than what meets the eye.
The chemistry is OFF THE CHARTS! From the very first moment Ryder and Lexie met there was insanely hot chemistry, it was off the charts. As the story progresses that chemistry and connection only continues to grow. Seriously, you’re going to need a fan or two. Their relationship wasn’t easy, however, no matter what life through at them they handle it in strides. Age is just a number, when you have a connection that is undeniable like Ryder and Lexie’s nothing else matters.
The Model is everything you could want in a reverse age gap, but this story is so much more than that. There is so much that was unexpected and took the story and Lexie and Ryder’s relationship to a whole different level. A MUST READ from Harlow and one I’d highly recommend to anyone who loves this trope!
