Review of "The Talented Mr. Maxwell" By: Julia Harlow

"The Talented Mr. Maxwell" By: Julia Harlow

Dorrie Applegate just stumbled into a career-launching opportunity. The small-town Kentucky girl landed a gem of a position at Omni Publishing in New York City. Her first major assignment—writing a biography of one of the most sought-after male models in the world. 
Grant Maxwell is at the apex of his career. Unfortunately the end of his run looms before him. At thirty-four, scores of younger, hungrier models nip at his heels, vying for his spot at the pinnacle of the fashion realm. And he has no earthly idea what to do next. 
In the midst of an unlikely and tumultuous love affair with Grant, Dorrie is suddenly forced into making an agonizing decision. It’s a decision that shatters Grant’s heart. 
Step onto the volatile runway of fashion modeling packed to the hilt with clashing egos, impossibly gorgeous men, backstabbing, and biting jealousy. And caught in the snare of the dramatic intrigue? Dorrie Applegate and Grant Maxwell. 

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Dorrie Applegate is fresh out of college and got an amazing job as a journalist at Omni Publishing. Their rules and codes of conduct are strict. Dorrie is just happy she has this opportunity. If she does well on this assignment she could be up for a promotion.

Grant Maxwell is a well known model. He may be older than most of his competition but he is confident and compassionate. He love what he does. He has done several inteviews about his career but never really about his life.

Follow Dorrie and Grant on their journey of obtaining success. They are relatable characters in the sense that we all struggle to reach success and happiness.
