The other night I was trying to decide what book to read. I tend to stockpile (almost daily) and then have to back track to figure out which ones I haven’t read yet. It is seriously disorganized sometimes but I’m working on it. It just so happened that Piece of Work by Staci Hart was the one that stood out to me.
The plot of this 297 book is – Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.
His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.
You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.
But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.
And maybe my heart, too.
My View– So… this is a smart book revolving around Renaissance period art, which made my heart more than happy. My senior year of high school I had so many credits that all I need to graduate was an english credit and half of a social studies credit but since I went to boarding school and they couldn’t just let me sit in my dorm all day, I passed my time taking a bunch of periods of art. I also have a massive love of history which explains the period of art I enjoy. As you also may have figured out by my previous reviews, I pack a sense of humor which made this book a perfect fit for me. My views actually lineup in sync with Rin’s perfectly.
Now I could tell you that the relationship with her friends is definitely a life goal or trying to imagine two 6+ feet tall people getting it on sets this book on fire. I mean, can’t you just picture arms and legs everywhere? And how does thing height play out with leverage and chairs and desks… is their furniture bigger? I have serious questions about this… But the true gift to this story is watching Rin grow from a caterpillar to a butterfly.
However it’s not just Rin that grows, Court does too. This is such a beautiful story of growth in oneself and learning to trust love.
