I need to start this review by saying that Max is officially my new book boyfriend. This sexy, tortured man has jumped straight off the pages of Ruth’s books, won my heart, and I am fully prepared to ride off into the sunset with him.
Now that I got that off my chest, let’s get to the good stuff, shall we? ;)
Clampett’s second installment in the Work of Art trilogy is nothing short of brilliant. The story picks up right where the first book left off, with Ava searching for Max while still trying to figure out what she feels for and where she stands with Jonathan. There’s a constant internal struggle brewing for the first portion of the book, because on one hand it seems logical to be with Jonathan; he’s older, successfully established, and honestly, much more predictable than Max. On the other hand, there’s this intense energy that seems to pull Ava and Max to one another. Their attraction is electric, and even though Max hasn’t treated Ava as well as she deserves to be treated, he clearly feels something for her that runs much deeper than a face-value friendship.
My favorite thing about Work of Art – The Unveiling is the amount of time we get to spend with Max and Ava. Sure we saw plenty of them in the first book, but in this book it’s different. They’re in a different place, the circumstances are different, and when these two are together, everything around them ignites in this passionate yet sensual flame. My favorite scenes from this book are in Santa Fe (you’ll have to pick up a copy and read to know what I mean). Clampett’s writing is descriptive and poetic, and for much of the book I felt like I was walking alongside the characters, observing their interactions, taking in their environments, and feeling their emotions.
I read this book in two days. I could not put it down once I picked it up. I love when an author has the ability to catch me hook, line, and sinker with his or her story, and Clampett successfully does that. She’s done such an amazing job of developing both Max and Ava’s characters that I found myself wishing I could just keep reading about them forever and ever and ever. The changes each character makes are well thought out, realistic, and perfectly interwoven into the plot of the story.
I won’t say how this book ends, but I will say that Clampett will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride of the best sort, and leave you chomping at the bit for more. I can’t wait to get my hands on the third installment of this trilogy. It’s going to be incredibly hard to make it for another two months, but I know that the wait will be well worth it. I can only imagine what Clampett has in store for these two, and all the spectacular words and situations we readers will get to encounter.
I would recommend this book to anyone I know who loves the art world, romance, sensuality, and just the right amount of angst. Or for anyone looking for an amazing book in general. The Work of Art trilogy is where it’s at.
Chaotic thoughts in the form of storytelling from Ava give the reader a bird’s eye view into her mind helping us understand the finer details of her of choices and the mess Max has made of her mind and her heart. As the book progresses so does Ava's posture about ther situations with both Max and Jonathan. She’s confused as a heroine, unsure if her love for a seemingly unhealthy, broken artist can be enough for the both of them to survive their feelings. And conversely she's conflicted about the debonair publisher out to woo her since through her, we learn more about the illustrious Jonathan – whom captivates for a reason. We get glimpses of her strength as a woman as Max comes back into her life. She grew exponentially in book two.
Speaking of growth, there’s a lot to be said for Max Caswell in The Unveiling. The man sees something good, strong, and healthy so he tries to uproot his ingrained ideologies and trust from faith rather than disregard from unhealthy mistrust. His interactions make more sense as he opens up his heart. The two of them are a heady combination together. Passion and fireworks when it’s just the two of them in their own little bubble. I fell a little harder for Max in this book. The beauty of their growth together is the recognition they want to be better for each other and dutifully work to make themselves better and more understanding.
The Unveiling has a bit of everything: the building of a unique, flirty friendship into a passionate love affair, betrayal from trusted characters, a stigma placed on both Max and Ava about who they are making it harder for them to grow professionally, and friends/family who continually support. While again, I sometimes got lost in the trivial details, I’m still excited about book three. I’m convinced of the connection between Max and Ava fully, my connection with either of them is a bit lacking for my taste but that hasn’t made the book any less entertaining for me but rather leaves me still as intrigued as I was after book one. I think there’s a lot of sass and spitfire we’re going to see from Ava as her feelings for Max fully bloom in book three. And likewise, I see Max coming around in a major way to support and cherish this woman uniquely his.
The series is perfect for New Adult romance lovers who like a strong heroine and broken hero based in the colorful world of art and entertainment. Clampett’s writing, her use of quotes to perfectly depict the chapter ahead all combine into great storytelling. Very much looking forward to book three.
