A Stella Review: Contour (Shape of You #1) by Meg Harding

RATING 5 out of 5 stars

Jamie “Roxy” Albright has one great love in his life and room for no other. He lives and breathes makeup. Men are nothing more than temporary distractions and romance… well, that isn’t worth his time. With a burgeoning career as a YouTube makeup artist opening doors to never before dreamed of opportunities, time isn’t something Jamie has and distractions aren’t something he can afford.

Instagram model and shirtless wonder Tyler Jackson is quickly falling for elusive Jamie. How it went from a seemingly innocent message to feelings, he’ll never know. Their chemistry is instant and fiery hot, and Tyler’s never been that good at self control. The challenges are endless, though. There’s Jamie’s walls to break through and a country worth of space between them. And just when things are starting to look up, life throws a wrench in the works.

I devoured Contour in one night, I have to admit I couldn’t put it down for a second and I was sleep deprived the morning after but I didn’t care at all. This new release by Meg Harding caught my attention since I read the blurb and once I actually started reading it, I was gone. Tyler and Jamie were amazing characters, I adored them, together they were the perfection, they clicked so well, it was unavoidable not to fall in love with them. I especially liked how Jamie changed (still being himself) once he finally let his attraction for Tyler become more, and later how Tyler helped him to come out of the shell Jamie had built around, and never once he asked Jamie to be someone else if not himself. Tyler loved him and his love for makeup, he loved his smart mouth too.

And then the second characters as Lorelie and Dan and Mattie were the friends everyone should have, always supportive and ready to follow their best friends in their new adventures.

The author did a great job with Contour, well written, scenes always clear and great dialogues, well defined characters, and engaging plot, no drama or angst, just two lovely famous persons falling in love. Contour is the first book in a new series and I can’t wait for the next one.

Cover Design: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design.   The cover art could be perfect but I honestly can’t see Jamie in the model face.

Series Shape of You #1

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
