Model Boyfriend is the follow up to Undefeated, Anna and Nick’s story. It gives you a closer look on the real life behind the glitz and glam of the sports world and modelling. If you haven’t read Undefeated, I would suggest that you read it first so you can get the full background of this pair.
This is the book where you go beyond the happy ever after: this is Anna and Nick’s reality. In Undefeated, the authors gave us the fast paced world of rugby; however, this time we get a deeper insight into the glamorous but tawdry world of modelling. With Nick’s career in rugby closing to an end, his retirement brought up feelings of aimlessness and boredom. Anna’s insecurities rise to the surface again and the antagonist from the previous book makes a vengeful return. How in the world can this couple deal with their relationship when real life sets in?
Although I felt that some parts of the book were slower paced albeit interesting and more about the ins and outs of the fashion world and technical aspects of photography, the tempo picked up when other new characters were thrown into the pot. The authors’ writing style showed cohesiveness and is well written; I felt Nick’s pain when he was at a loss and he struggled in finding an alternative goal, and I shared Anna’s dread when she slowly felt Nick starting to distance himself again. I am glad that Brendan, Anna’s personal assistant and best friend played a bigger part in this book. He was the much needed “lift” in this romantic tale, someone who made me laugh with his outrageous and funny quips. I am so happy that Brendan’s character wasn’t made out to be a caricature of the gay best friend as he deserved more. The authors did him justice in giving us his story and was definitely an added bonus. I totally enjoyed reading about Anna and Nick again and I am sure you will too.
Currently he is a Personal trainer living in Cheshire, and has an online fitness program: Fear Nothing Fitness.
I enjoy watching surfers at my local beach, and weaving stories of romance in the modern world, with all its trials and tribulations.
It’s been the best fun working with Stu on this story. And yes, he did think about joining the Marines once.
