The Art Of Words by RJ Scott & Meredith Russell
After years of following his activist parents, artist Blu Taylor finally found somewhere to call home.
He sees art in the world around him yet is never truly part of it. There's a line that keeps him just on the outside of everything and everyone else except his best friend.
Thomas Harrington has everything—the money, the car, and the designer suits. But something is missing from a seemingly perfect life, lost when his mother was taken ill.
After attending a local art show, Blu is contacted by Tom and offered his dream—a chance to show at a gallery.
Though there is a growing attraction between the men, their worlds couldn't be more apart. Blu speaks through paint and brushes, and Tom's life is filled with words and paperwork.
Though opposites attract, these differences might push them apart
This book was a little surprising for me, I'm a big fan of Ms. Scott's books but this one didn't make me very excited, now don't get me wrong it's a beautiful love story it was just a little slow moving with very little drama. I didn't feel like I got a chance to really get into Blu's head or heart, he seemed kinda lost the entire book. I got Tom a little bit more but still felt like I was missing something. I really was rooting more for Jackson to decide he really wanted Blu but that wasn't to be, and he ended up being my favorite character in this book.
The story line had great potential just feel flat here, Harry was another character I didn't like though he does sorta redeem himself at the end. I will still recommend because I trust in Ms. Scott's stories and her stories really do entertain, this one didn't do it for me, but it might for someone else.
