BLURB: The pumps are red satin with a peep toe, a shiny black contrast heel, and a ruffle detail at the vamp. The cat eyeliner with exaggerated lashes and the red lipstick on my porcelain face make the forties inspired look reach perfection.I enjoy being a pin-up model…
C. Michelle’s vibrant debut novel, Pinned Up is full of snappy dialogue, edgy humor, and a lot of heart. This fun look into the world of a modern-day pin-up model is one wild ride!
Twenty-five-year-old Nina Moretti lives a double life of sorts. She’s a victim advocate during the day and as a side gig, lives out her 1940s fetish as a pin-up model in San Francisco, California. While she may not “do” serious relationships, she has fulfillment in her work and hanging out with her best friend, Kade—the greatest sidekick any woman could possibly want. All is well in Nina’s hectic, but satisfying life…
That is, until she meets Josh, a stunningly handsome man who has a notorious reputation as a ladies’ man. For his part, Josh is reluctant to commit to any woman, largely due to his loving, yet overbearing mother. Nina, however, sparks his interest in a way that no other woman has before. As they navigate the pitfalls of romantic entanglement, both come to realize their pasts are intertwined in ways they could never imagine. Perhaps, they have more in common than just their fear of relationships. What are two people afraid of commitment supposed to do?
My View: You have Nina a beautiful part time pin up model, who is out going, loyal, and protective of her family and those she considers family.
Them you have Josh who is a hot, rugged, " tree hugger " as Nina called him..
They seem to be drawn towards each other, Nina is afraid to trust any one because something horrible happens in high school. Josh doesn't want certain things because he resents his mother for taking certain things from him like his chance at pro baseball.....
I love that they are so much fun and dirty all of the people can be! I really love the stalker tendencies both Josh and Nina have.
There are things at play that neither one of them think is possible and one can only hope never happens... Things that neither of them new about their family that could blind side them and make them rethink their way of living and the things they want for them self's in the future.
I am super excited to see that there will be a book 2!!!!!!
