Review: Boston by Alexis Alvarez

Parker Minelli, a fitness trainer and cover model, is every woman's dream. His Boston accent, chiseled abs and easy-going nature have women flocking to him. But when he meets author Abby, whose brains are bigger than his biceps, he sets out to prove that he's more than just a pretty face.
Abby is thrilled—and a little breathless—when Parker agrees to work with her on her next book release. However, they soon discover that while opposites may attract, that doesn't mean that they can overcome their differences. Especially when Parker's supermodel ex-girlfriend reappears.

Will they be able to see the big picture and accept each other as they are, or will their differences close the book on their chance at love?

The story starts off strong. Abby who is a best selling author has an idea to put photos with her words. She  contacts Parker Minelli, aka Boston, to co-produce her idea of "Sexy photos of a handsome, ripped man and the heroine, photos that would directly mimic some of the sultrier passages of the book." Sign me up! This would make for an interesting read.

The story centers around two mismatched souls that are driven by their insecurities. Abby and Boston can't seem to move past their feelings of inadequacy. They both feel unworthy of each other. The struggle is well written and it's easy to empathize with both characters. However, midway into the story something changes, Abby's reactions are more catty and immature. Boston's actions are no better. The ending was short and sweet but as a reader I wasn't able to reconnect with Abby.  3 Stars.
