Headshot: Friends to Lovers MM Romance (Model Love) by JP Sayle

Headshot is another of the books in the Model Love multi author series and can be read as a standalone.

From the blurb:

Standalone Gay Romance / Friends to Lovers / Hurt Comfort / Age Gap / Model love / Steamy / Slow Burn

Can Jack save his home and win the man who's claimed his heart?

Early in life Jack Storey learns a very hard life lesson from those who should love him. In a place of utter despair he meets a man who changes his life… forever. Encouraged to express himself and fulfil all his dreams, Jack grabs at life with both hands to prove to himself he’s worthy of love. The one thing that remains elusive because he’s already given his heart to Kit.

Then Garfield, the house Kit runs and Jack calls home, is put under threat. With time running out to stop the residents from becoming homeless, Jack asks his modelling friends to help save Garfield.
Kit is about to find out just how hard Jack will work and fight for those he loves.

Headshot is a sixty-thousand word contemporary MM novel featuring friends to lovers, age-gap, hurt comfort, and a sassy model with kick arse style. It’s part of the Model Love multi-author series. Each book can be read as a standalone, in any order, but there are so many models falling in love, why not read them all?

Jacquie's Review:

Absolutely lovely.

Headshot begins with Jack and Kit meeting at a pivotal moment for Jack and then heads into them dancing around their feelings and needing to save Garfield House.

Though there was an age gap, quite often I felt like Jack was older, which made sense because of being on his own and his family etc.

I loved how they communicated, the great cast of side characters, just everything about it.

There was just a lovely warm feeling that I got while reading it. I think it's one I would come back to.

Rating: 5 Stars

Heather's Review:

Headshot is a lovely story that combines the Model Love world with a truly inspirational and caring community resource and a romance that has been building for a long time...

While there is an Age Gap, it doesn't feel like a typical one... and I think that Jack's maturity and poise shines through the pages of the book.  I found the passion for Garfield House was just as palpable as the love story between Jack and Kit and it was beautiful to read.  Most of the angst in the story is about the charity and that makes it an emotional read, but so worth it!

If you need a story that will restore your faith in humanity and give you lots of steamy yumminess, than I recommend adding Headshot to your TBR!
Sarah C.'s Review
Kit and Jack have an amazing love story. It starts on a cold night, when Kit encounters a sobbing Jack and talks him down from making a major mistake. The prologue lead me to believe that this would be a very different kind of story. Instead, we jump five years and we see both men now older and wiser and working together to save the Garfield House, a home for disenfranchised youth that Kit runs and that saved Jack's life five years prior.

The two men danced around one another for five years, having feelings that everyone but them could see, and it was great when they finally took that leap. Especially since that leap came as they worked together towards saving the house they called home - even if neither of them actually lived there.

The characters - both Kit and Jack as well as all of the side characters - were all fun to read about. Kit and Jack had their own traumas, but they weren't the focus of the book. Which, honestly, I thought they would've been given the intro. Instead of the hurt/comfort I thought might be in the pages, I found something fluffier than a literal bed of cotton candy.

If you want a fast and light read that will leave you feeling like you just downed a gallon of sugar, then this book is for you. It is incredibly low angst, heartwarming, and gives you characters you can cheer for. There is a content warning for past death of a family member and on page suicide attempt as well as familial homophobia (off page). So please heed those warnings if you're sensitive to them.

A very emotional book that I couldn't put down.  It's a friends to lovers with an age/gap, has wonderful characters and the storyline is great.  I'm loving this series.
