Max Monroe, you ladies have had me in fits of laughter and now hunting for the tissues! Ansel Bray goes from tragically blind broody artist to inspires broody artist, but his sudden inspiration, ‘the girl in the painting’ suddenly appears in his life, for real. What is the strange attraction Ansel feels for Indy, the girl? His new muse. This story is a roller coaster of emotions, of two people searching for answers. It will draw you in even when the pieces start coming together.
‘Love is blind, but fate sees everything’... Ansel Bray is a broody and emotional artist. He has a muse, a gorgeous woman who is a vision in his mind which he paints. The paintings of her are deeply personal and he reluctantly agrees for one of these to be displayed in his new exhibition. On the opening night of this exhibition, Indy Davis comes face to face of a painting of herself. Indy and Ansel’s lives have never crossed so there’s no conceivable reason why she is the girl in Ansel’s painting. When they meet they have an instant and undeniable connection. Their souls seem to know each other and they have an intangible bond. Through all the confusing feelings they have based on their undeniable connection, it seems that fate has brought them together.
You know what I really like about Max Monroe books? I like that we don't get cookie cutter books, or series after series that is all the same. We have had hilarious billionaires, murder/mystery type books.
And now we have The Girl In The Painting.
You can't help but instantly adore Ansel and Indy.
Ansel is not your typical sexy, broody artist, and his story is not the regular, run of the mill story.
I will say that I did pick up pretty quickly something that was a major part of the story-to-be, however that did not take away any of the enjoyment.
I am not artist, and couldn't play an instrument if my life depended on it, however I love art and music. I liked both aspect of this in this story.
A beautiful yet heartbreaking story, The Girl In The Painting will leave you breathless and full of hope and love.
I can't wait to see what this pair brings use next.
Another good story from Max & Monroe. Ansel and Indy definitely have a connection, and whilst the reason for this was something I picked up on very early on, this was still an enjoyable story.
Ansel was not the kind of character that I was too fond of at first, even if I could understand why he was acting out the way he was. Indy is an instantly likeable character that you just wanted to be happy.
Once these two connect, the chemistry is undeniable and watching and waiting for things to unfold is both fun and frustrating at times.
Also some great secondary characters who I would like to know more about, both Ansels brother and also Indy's sister.
All in all another good read from Max Monroe and I look forward to what they bring next.
Max Monroe have discovered their emotional side and it will have you in tears. While I knew this wasn’t a romcom I still wasn’t sure what to be prepared for. But you’ll need tissues and it has angst and soo much love. Their writing was beautiful and I felt deeply for these two characters, as they went through their losses and then finally their gains.
Max monroe deliver brilliance, time and time again. Their words are addictive, their stories create such joy. I devoured this book, I fell in love with the characters and didn't want the book to end. It's the perfect amount of heartache, it gives all the feelings. I couldn't of hoped for anything more.
