The Talented Mr. Maxwell by Julia Harlow is a romance story that is full of drama and sadness, passion and anger.
Dorrie Applegate enjoys her job at the Omni publishing company and now finds herself on a plane on the way to her first assignment. Her assignment entails a trip to London and a written biography on one well known, male model, Mr Grant Maxwell. However, the hot and sexy male who is sitting beside her has other ideas. He is trying to get to know the lovely young woman sitting next to him, he is smitten with her and wants to get to know her better. Will Dorrie realise who this stranger is? Will Dorrie find more than a story from this man?
Grant Maxwell is one sexy and in demand male model and one really nice guy. He was definitely aware that he was a little different from other models and the most noticeable one was his age. He knew that his age would change his career and that the younger ones on the rise would one day take over. Just what that change would be he did not know.
Dorrie and Grant have sparks flying when they can no longer keep their hands off each other. They are very attracted to each other and they both know what they want and that is each other. As they start to form a relationship they are confronted with jealousy and trust issues, in which I found both of them to be a little bit immature when it comes to relationships. Being as popular as he is everyone thinks he has had whoever he wants whenever he wants when it comes to women, but the truth about his relationships is not what it seems. Dorrie has never seen herself as the beauty that others saw. Due to this and her other qualities it only added to her allure and could stop men but it had been a while.
What will happen when they are forbidden fruit? What happens when someone gets hurt? Will they finally see they are meant to be together or will they walk away for good? Will Grant decide what his heart truly desires?
At times I really wanted to smack Grant and I really had to question some of his motives and judgements. Poor Dorrie I just wanted to shake her and make her take a good look at herself for once. The story will keep you engaged until the end with all the twists and turns and things you never saw coming.
