*May contain spoilers for January*

Mia's second contract in her attempt to save her father from his debts, and this time it's with artist, Alec Dubois. The Frenchman wants Mia to be his muse and she complies, not just for the money but because of the tension between the two of them. As the month progresses, Mia poses for stills and paintings for Alec, giving her an experience like never before...

I didn't really know quite what to expect from February because I liked Wes so much in January and felt that him and Mia had a good thing going. So I didn't really know how a new guy was going to work for me. It does simply because Mia doesn't go about it in a forgetting Wes way, in fact she thinks about him a fair bit, but she does have some fun.

Alec and Mia have some great chemistry, but the boundries between them are set early on, so even as a reader you know what to expect from them. I was a little surprised that it worked so much better than I thought, though that could just be because the author is talented at writing the chemistry between the two characters.

I loved the descriptions of Alec's art too. It would have been so easy for the author to gloss over that as just something that Alec was doing, but instead she describes the pictures and how Mia feels about them. It added something else to the story.

I'm looking forward to carrying on with this series!
