I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Natalie Scott's life is simple with no strings attached. As a band photographer, she's made metal music her life, and life on tour means no relationships.
At least not ones that last and that's the way she likes it.
She only has one rule.
Don't date or otherwise screw around with the client.
But she never said anything about love.
Brent Andrews knows Natalie's rules.
And he's about to make sure he's an exception to them.
All of them.
Even ones she didn't know she had.
I practically salivate when I find out that Cassandra Giovanni has a new book. She’s set my standard for great coming of age stories and has completely pulled me into the world of the boys of fallout. To me Behind the Lens is obviously an effort of passion and love for ones craft, reflecting Giovanni’s love for photography and music. The story feels genuine and heartfelt, everything just flows and unfolds with great consideration. Our heroine Natalie has good cause to be guarded, and Brett, one of her newest clients, gives her good reason to break her “don’t date the client” rule.
Beyond this being a fun read, as we see Brett and Natalie fall into each others lives and their quickly developing camaraderie, there’s a sensual chemistry between them that comes through in their sweet banter and thoughtful conversations. The story line is well paced and we get the right amount of history to explain why Natalie feels the way she does. This is truly a story where the main character undergoes a transformation and comes to understand and accept herself. Natalie is already strong and level headed but she learns to allow herself to take back what’s hers and face her past. A lot of this comes from her relationship with Makeshift Chemistry, she forms a connection with the entire band and I love how they have her back.
Behind the Lens is a 5 star read about being true to oneself, finding ones voice and following the muse. I can’t wait to see who gets the next story in this highly recommended series.
