The Quick and Dirty: A fun novella that introduces readers to Jenna Hartley’s new series Love in LA. An age gap, art professor/student romance.
Kate’s wealthy (and snobbish) parents have no idea she’s attending art school and not med school. Xander is an artist that has had an accident that has left him at once uninspired and frustrated with his inability to paint in the same manner he once did. The two meet during a course where Xander is acting as a substitute teacher and the students are painting a nude model: Kate. Sparks fly and Xander realizes that Kate inspires something in him that makes him want to try to create again. As their relationship grows into something more, things get complicated when Kate’s parents find out the secret she’s been keeping.
I love the dynamic between Xander and Kate. They just fit together so well. 💗While this novella is an age gap romance, it’s more of the sweet variety; the story isn’t dark or twisted at all. That’s not to say there isn’t some 🔥. It’s a solid contemporary romance novella that was quick and easy; perfect as a weekend read.
Art was my first love—my only love.
But with my career at a crossroads, I’m forced to question everything.
When a new art student shows up, I realize she may be the muse I’ve been searching for.
Even though I’m the professor, it often feels as if Kate’s teaching me.
And the more time we spend together, the more I realize she’s changing my perspective on art…and love.
