Book Review of Model Position by Kitsy Clare

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.



For Sienna, love and art are perilous games. Is she ready to take that gamble?

Sienna is a beautiful, talented artist poised on the precipice of soaring into the glamorous, yet cutthroat Manhattan art scene.

Dave Hightower is a hooked-up, handsome heir to the hippest gallery in NYC, Gallery Hightower.

Erik is the live drawing model with his sizzling green eyes fixed only on Sienna.

Three’s a crowd, so Sienna must make a choice: date Dave and ride the fast track to landing a show at Gallery Hightower and hobnobbing with the art glitterati, or follow her heart and take a chance with Erik, the stunning male model who’s stealing her heart. But Erik has some worrisome secrets, and who in their right mind would make live modeling their career? 

Dare Sienna throw away her chances of hitting it big to follow her heart?

I loved the cover for this Novella! Before I start with my review, I just want to remind you all that Novellas are really tough for me to read because I have a really tough time connecting to the characters unless it's a Novella to a series in which we have already been introduced to the characters.

I thought the story was refreshing and quite fun. It's set in NYC (which I love!) I was able to connect with Sienna to a certain extent. I thought she was great character but I would've loved to have learned more about her as a person. And the same goes for all the characters. I actually thought they were all great, but save for Sienna, I didn't connect to any of them. And in my opinion, it was because of the lack of character development..

I fell in LOVE with Erik- mainly because of the absence of clothes on his body lol.

There was a fun unexpected surprise towards the ending that I didn't see coming.

Overall, it was a quick and fun read. Would I recommend? If you're in the mood for a quick read and if you're an artist and/or a lover of Novellas.

  1. Thanks, Betsy,
    For those readers (like you) who would love to see a longer novel with Sienna, you get your wish! The next in the series, Private Internship launches on Sept. 29 and it is a full length novel where Sienna lands an internship with bad-boy sculptor, Caz. :)
