POV: First-person dual perspectives
Joshua Dawson is my best friend’s ex-boyfriend. That alone should be reason enough for me to keep my distance. Add in that he’s a well mannered, loyal and hardworking artist and I should be running in the other direction.
He’s damn near perfect, and I prefer my men hard to love and easy to leave. Josh’s only flaw is he wants forever, and for the first time I might want the same. But loving someone doesn’t mean you deserve them.
He’s all I want and everything I can’t have.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Stars to Canvas by Jacob Chance.
Josh & Elle…….
I loved this book! I love this cover! Everything about this book was creative. The writing flows well as it always does with this author. I thought there was great chemistry and tension between Josh and Elle. In addition, they are characters that you easily fall in love with. I admit to wondering about my like for Elle at the beginning but once I got into her perspective, I knew she was a strong likable heroine.
Josh and Elle have known each other since college. We actually get to meet them in Quake & Quiver, which are interconnected books. I also loved that in Canvas we get to see what the other friends have been up to.
Josh and Elle started as friends but during the past several months, their friendship began to develop into more. There was scorching chemistry and a ton of sexual tension around them. Unfortunately there were issues you’ll read about that did not bring them together smoothly. But when they finally came together, it was beautiful, believable and so hot.
There is some light suspense; enough to give your heart that little kick of panic. But it didn’t drag on and it was handled well. At least I thought it was a perfect resolution.
Another point I’d like to add was how perfectly this book’s cover depicted the story. We all love covers and for a lot of people, they are the true selling point. However, as sexy as our favorite covers are, they don’t always paint the perfect picture of the story. In fact, Canvas has one of my favorite covers of the year!
I absolutely recommend this book. It is a standalone so you don’t have to read the interconnected books to follow. However, for your entertainment I recommend you do.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
