Victoria’s back-story is a rags-to-riches one, while Steve’s story is one of a young man’s, not always good, decisions as he struggles to find a place where he fits. When their lives come together emotional sparks ignite, but big trouble also moves in to make life difficult.
The primary antagonist Jimmy Van Orr, a former good friend of Steve’s and Victoria’s stepson, is the catalyst for all kinds of havoc. His back-story, from his point-of-view, is a real eye-opener and his motivation for his actions astonish.
Other characters like Steve’s competition in the antiques business, a website builder, a nerdy rookie cop, an antiques restorer who practices psychometrics, and a very observant cockatiel that talks, plus another pair of antagonists (won’t tell who they are, that would be a spoiler) keep the story humming with action.
How a foundation for social good and a happy-ever-love for Victoria and Steve come out of all the chaos make a story with unusual happenings that captivate.
While Luxury Model Wife is not a long story, it is filled with emotional events, some that repel and others that sizzle with love. All of them grip the reader’s attention.

Adele Downs has given us another amazing story, and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this great story. Luxury Model Wife is a sweet, romantic suspenseful story that has some twists that will entertain you from start to finish,and then will leave us wanting more from this author. The characters in this story was three dimensional and the chemistry that was between Steve and Victoria is sweet and exciting . The story was clean with the sex that was off the page- for those of you that just want a good romance without the hot on page sex scenes. Young Victoria has lost her wealthy husband James .And he was her savior and her world right from the street ,and she loved him so much. But James family and friends thought of her as a trophy wife or a gold digger, because she was half his age. Now that he was gone and she is lost and alone . James son jimmy is pressuring her to sell the house and all of it contents.He has set up a meeting with an antiques Dealer ,but she not happy with them ,and decides to use Carlson's Antiques, who her husband James used to buy everything . But to her surprise she had ever expected him to be so handsome , and didn't realized that he would awaken her feelings like he did. There's a little touch of a mystery when the antique shop is robbed. Who would have robbed the shop and what did they take ? I could tell you more about this story, but that would spoil it for you. I highly recommend that you read this wonderful story, you won't be disappointed .
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Victoria was a strong female lead and that she and Steve together had some terrific chemistry between them. Best of all, that chemistry lead to some great passion and that helped to drive the plot effortlessly along. Their intimacy was written off-page, making this book a refreshing change of pace from some of the other books I read. There’s even a hint or two of some mystery with this story and Adele made sure that her side characters were there to add complexity and intrigue.
This was a page turner for sure as I definitely wanted to discover what happened next. It provided me with twists and turns right up until the very end and I pretty much loved every minute of it. If you are one who enjoys well-written romances with off-page sex, strong heroines and sexy heroes all wrapped up with a touch of drama and mystery then this book is for you. I’d make some space on your ‘Keeper’ shelf if I were you. *grin*
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
