ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-17th May 2018
Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.
His body is as chiselled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.
You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.
But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.
And maybe my heart.
ARC BOOK REVIEW
“Piece of Work” by Staci Hart was a very enjoyable fast paced rom-com.
with an extremely unconventional female heroine at its centre and an intriguing unique storyline that had no issues pulling me in and keeping me entertained.
This was my first toe-dip into the waters of this particular author.
And I’m very pleased to say the experience was a positive one.
“Piece Of Work” is told in dual POV; with both, David and Rin taking alternate turns reciting chapters.
It’s set in the very different world of Fine Arts.
I particularly liked this fact as knowing nothing about the medium of Art; I actually felt I was getting a brief window into another world here; almost educating me about the whole setting.
First, we have Hyo-rin Van de Meer; new intern in the European Paintings department at the Met.
Korean, very tall, clumsy, shy and seriously lacking in everyday people skills.
But on the other side of the coin; also intelligent, Loyal, funny and a great friend.
Rin has so much to offer but is so used to being all but invisible to others; so when our ugly duckling with the help of her best girlfriends morphs overnight into the swan that was always hiding beneath her skin David definitely notices this and is no longer just intrigued by Rin’s fine mind; but also the body covering it.
Now for David/Dr Lyons; Rins new tempory boss at the museum and the resident Art Curator.
David comes with baggage an overbearing father and a substantial Trust fund.
Always searching for a hidden agenda he’s so used to people wanting something from him he never takes anything at face value.
Well got to say; I wasn’t initially digging his vibe at all.
When we are first introduced to the Art Curator himself my first impression here was that he was an egotistical douche.
His snap judgment attitude towards Rin and how he perceives her was abysmal.
So dismissive; not even reprimanding his assistant The Barracuda Bianca; which is what I have affectionately titled the vicious witch; was awful to watch almost bullying.
Just referencing Rin as “The Intern” like she wasn’t even a person with emotions and all that well ggrrrr; let’s just say David at that moment in time was not at his finest and his inconsiderate actions really boiled my piss; like totally.
But moving on here slightly; when David does eventually start to allow his inner nice guy a small vacation things do start to look up a bit for our two lovers.
And it’s not long before David and Rin are setting these pages alight with there sexy antics.
So “Piece Of Work” was an excellent read.
It was your classic ugly duckling metamorphosis story.
With a misunderstood growly Beastly Boss also thrown into the mix just for good measure.
And though slightly predictable in places; this was still a fun easy read that brought an easy smile to my face.
David along the line; did eventually grow on me and Rin along with all her friends I adored from the start.
If you’re looking for a sweet romantic rom-com this ticks all the boxes.
I also think this was set up rather nicely for future publications; can’t wait to see the other members of the “Red Lipstick Coalition” achieve there future HEA’s.
So I’m crossing my fingers and toes here that this is the start of a fun new series.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “Piece Of work” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
