Audio Review: Exclusive, Model Love By: Ki Brightly, M.D. Gregory Narrated by: Keval Shah

Lesetiger called Exclusive, a story from the Model Love series, a "sweet romance."

From the blurb:

Getting signed as an exclusive model for a new fashion line is a dream come true for Asa, but is there more to the rich Ruslan than meets the eye?

Being a model was supposed to be temporary for Asa McGogh aka Augustine Hart. His fashion career was meant to be a stepping-stone to acting, but when he gets an exclusive contract that comes with a hefty payday, he can’t say no. It would be a privilege for any model to be exclusive for a new fashion line built by millionaire, Ruslan Kozlova, and it doesn’t hurt that Ruslan is both charming, a flirt, and incredibly handsome.

Ruslan Kozlova has a lonely life. Being a mafia boss isn’t easy, and all he wants to do is find the right person to stay by his side. When he sees Asa on a billboard, he knows he must have him, and he’ll do anything to make it happen, even bankroll an entire fashion line to get him close. Ruslan doesn’t want to be like every other businessman who expects more than Asa is willing to give him, though, so he decides to charm him the old-fashioned way. The more time Ruslan spends with Asa, the more he comes to realize how different Asa is from every other man he has met. Asa is pure and sweet, and Ruslan will do anything to keep him from the dark part of his life. But what happens when Asa finds out who Ruslan really is?

Exclusive is part of the Model Love multiauthored series. Each book can be listened to as a standalone, in any order, but there are so many models falling in love, why not listen to them all?

Lesetiger's Review:

Exclusive is a sweet and romantic story. The mafia king Ruslan is looking for true love. When he sees a picture of the model Asa, he falls in love with this model and does a lot to get to know him. But trouble is inevitable, because Asa has no idea what Ruslan does for a living and who he really is. No wonder an explosive situation ensues.

It was nice to see how Ruslan and Asa get closer and how the sparks fly. I found both characters very likable and the brief appearance of Asa's family was fun as well.

Keval Shah was a narrator I had only heard once before and I think he did a brilliant job. He has a pleasant voice and he can emphasize well and in the right places. I hope he reads more audiobooks because I was thrilled with him as a narrator.
