REVIEW: Intimate by Kate Douglas

They call her Kaz. She's a gorgeous model with a good head for business-until now, at least. Kaz has just been fired from her latest photo shoot for having the wrong tattoo in the wrong place at the wrong time. But a chance encounter with photographer Jake Lowell could make everything right again...if Kaz is willing to accept his proposition. What does she have to lose?

Jake has been searching for the perfect model to pose for a body-jewelry shoot-one that will leave no room for modesty. Is Kaz, who is nothing if not professional, ready to bare it all for a man she is not sure she can trust? It's an offer that's too good to refuse...and as Kaz finds herself growing more comfortable with Jake, the attraction between them reaches arousing new heights. But while the artist and his subject learn more about each other in the intimacy of wine country, evil lurks in the shadows-and soon it becomes clear that someone else has designs on them...

Oh God, the amazing potential this had to grab me right up!

Sad to say that it didn’t live up to my hopes. I was very close to putting this in my DNF pile but it had enough of a hook that I hung on.

I hate giving this book a poor review when I loved both main characters and really enjoyed the plot.

Kaz and Jake have so much in common and none of it all that great. Besides Kaz being an ink covered dream model and Jake being a photographer looking for that perfect person, their relationship is sketchy. Jake has a past that weaves into Kaz’s and this alone could have had such amazing suspense and build up but it fell so flat. Some scenes went on for far too long and it just wasn’t for me.
