“Epic enemies to lovers with a sweet, emotional kick. I was rooting for them from page one and have been left completely satisfied at the end. A top 2020 read for me!”- Harloe Rae, USA Today bestselling author
Through the Lens, an all-new angst-filled new-adult standalone from USA Today bestselling author K.K. Allen is available now!
“I had become his muse. What he didn’t know was that he had become mine too.”
Maggie Stevens is done feeling objectified.
After spending her entire life in the spotlight and climbing the high fashion ranks as a model in LA, she’s willing to leave it all behind for a fresh start. Moving to Seattle seems like the perfect solution.
A clean slate.
All is going according to plan. Until she meets the drop-dead gorgeous cooking instructor who delights in adding to her misery.
Desmond Blake is determined to make a name for his culinary school—one that speaks to his hard work and undeniable passion.
When his food photography hobby garners attention from an unexpected source, his dreams are finally within reach. The obstacle he never sees coming is the sharp-tongued bombshell with a distaste for all he stands for.
When Desmond accidentally captures a photo of Maggie during a moment of weakness, he starts to see there’s more to the fashionista than meets the eye…
Sometimes what can be seen through the lens is a skewed version of reality. A bent perspective. Manufactured, therefore losing all sense of authenticity. And sometimes all it takes is a different angle to see what’s right in front of you.
“Are they really so different, 4 stars”
Desmond and Maggie are like oil and water. He hates that she thinks she’s above everyone and she hates his judgement. She’s bitter he had her dad; he doesn’t understand her hatred towards her father. But when they are thrown together those shields are set down. They say there’s a fine line between love and hate. Is that the case with Maggie and Desmond?
I enjoyed the banter between Maggie and Desmond. I understood where both parties stood with their judgements. They had undeniable chemistry before they put down their swords so when they finally did it was explosive. I enjoyed seeing previous Allen couples and getting updates on them. Allen wrote a solid read that I believe most will enjoy.
