Title: Artist: A Second Chance Romance
Author: Ginny Frost
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Lexi Pintari is stuck in a dead-end cubicle job that is slowly killing her. She tucked away her passion for art when the love of her life ghosted her after college. Witnessing her lack of motivation, Lexi’s best friend drags her to an art retreat for much-needed reflection and inspiration. Though knowing her ex-boyfriend is an artist-in-residence there, Lexi agrees to go. Unfortunately, her metal-goth style and enthusiasm for graphic comics clash with the pastel-scarf-wearing, tea-sipping participants, making her ex the least of her problems.
Cole MacDougall is blocked. His rise to the top of the modern art scene is crushed by a missing muse. He is desperate to paint again, but the canvas remains blank. Due to the shortage of patronage revenue, he is forced to put up with the groupie-students. Until he sees a woman standing out like a sore thumb in ripped jeans and a leather jacket. Lexi. Hope blooms that he can renew his passion through her.
For two weeks, Lexi and Cole work together, discovering what they’ve lost professionally and personally. Will a magical Mortar & Pestle show them how to connect the broken lines and seal their destiny?
Wow, this book is incredible! As an artist myself, I found this to be an emotional read. Ginny Frost weaves a romance you won’t be able to put down. The characters leap from the page and into your heart. The descriptive narration allows the reader to lose themselves in the story. The romance is second chance with all the feels.
One of the things I love most about Artist is the setting. An artist’s retreat where Lexi is trying to rediscover her love of art. I’ve never been on one but after reading this book, I feel like I’ve experienced it. Ginny Frost takes great care into detailing the setting but also every other aspect of this story. It’s beautifully done and allows for an immersive reading experience.
The characters are such fun to read, especially Lexi. She’s a true heroine in search of herself, not love, but along the way she finds a love worth fighting for. Cole is another fantastic hero and one I connected with. This couple has a lot to overcome but it’s worth it.
The romance is written with the reader in mind. Ginny Frost knows what the romance reader wants and delivers. There’s drama, emotional turmoil, kisses, angst, and the journey is heartfelt. I don’t know of any reader who won’t love this book. I strongly recommend it and look forward to reading more from this author.
