Will Chris figure out who to trust in the glamorous and fake world of New York fashion?
Effing Gorgeous by Clancy Nacht is a fun, sexy and very enjoyable short story. Ms. Nacht has a true knack at writing unique and sexy characters that live and breathe off of the written page.
What I really liked about this book is that things aren’t always as they seem. At first glance, Jason seems like a shallow, inconsiderate jerk…but in all honesty, even when Jason is at his snarkiest, I couldn’t help but like him. When Chris meets him, his is overwhelmed by Jason’s over the top personality but charmed by the shy and even vulnerable man Chris sees deep inside.
Chris knows he’s a little naïve and when a supposed trusted mentor tells him that Jason is no good, this confuses him and leads him to do something hurtful toward Jason. When Chris finds out that he’s been deliberately mislead, he sets out to win Jason over…no matter what.
I truly enjoyed the banter these two men had between them. I also loved Jason and his colorful personality and could easily see why Chris was so easily charmed by him. I thought the two men fit well together and loved how they truly opened up emotionally to one another. I loved the ending, but wish it hadn’t been so glossed over.
Effing Gorgeous is a feel good, sexy read that would be a perfect read on a lazy day.
