Review: The Muse by Kenya Wright
"If you're looking for a read that is full of mystery, sexual tension, romance, and a little bit of eccentricity - this is the read for you."-Jamie's Book Reviews
"Another book that had me up into the wee hours reading it!! . . . I loved that this book was not only a suspense, but also a book about finding one's identity." Jesse's Book Blog.----------"What happens when Death is the Muse?"
On the first day of her nude modeling job, Elle deals with a corpse, an eccentric dark artist, his sexy brother, and a grandmother that can see someone's future by just touching their hands. Although these crazy distractions shove her on edge, it's just what she needs to mend her battered heart and forget about her ex-boyfriend. Besides, she does get to live in their castle for the whole three months.
Everything seems magical and perfect. Until more dead bodies are discovered.
There's something going on at night, right in the artist's garden. Under the moonlight, young women are being cut and sliced, and no one has a clue to who's doing it. And the more Elle is around the weird family in the castle, the more she realizes that they all are hiding secrets.
The Muse is a Sexy Multicultural Romance involving Love, Art & a Deadly Mystery.
I received this book to give an honest review.
I actually was suckered into this book from the beginning. You are following not only a model within this book but an artist who makes art well from Death. Which I think is beyond cool, only because you know you can get more of a reaction from death being displayed rather than living and things with color. Okay I know that totally sounded morbid.
I like the main character Elle and how she was willing to throw everything away to find herself. Most people now a days wouldn't do that, because they are scared of what might happen. Though I do have to say her fears that she lets Alvarez know about, it bothered me just because I could not see it being real. But that was just me.
Hex the artist of Death. Wow, he has more problems than anyone but yet when he works he works and it all comes together perfectly.
Alvarez, the one who seems to try to keep everything together but also seems to be drowning in the insanity that surrounds him. The way he is portrayed of how caring he is of others especially his family just makes him a great book boyfriend. Especially when he says that every Cuban man has two hearts, and that they give one to that one special lady. My heart just beat a little faster on that.
Grandma oh my what can you say about her. She is just straight up crazy, but lets say I think I would have more enjoyment if she was my grandma. With all her spells and voodoo that she does I was like damn. I can just tell this character is going to make me pay attention to her.
All the characters were likable each one that their own personality done within the book, and it fit them perfectly. The story line what can I say DAMN girl you got some talent. There is a murder that seems to be going on, but what is really behind it. The ending well lets just say you have to read it. Because I know if I keep this review going I am going to give away so many spoilers.
