Art professor Seth Granger desperately needs a nude model for his afternoon life drawing class because the one he normally uses has gone into early labor. Rather than cancel the class Seth decides to ask his colleague Callie to pose in the buff – seeing her naked would be the next best thing to actually getting to touch her. Callie’s starred in all his recent sexual fantasies and he’s wanted her since they were first introduced but she’s shot him down every single time.
Callie Sullivan has no problem with nude models. In fact she uses them for her own sculpting classes but she’s incredibly attracted to Seth and determined not to cave in to her desire for him. There’s no way she’ll expose herself to him and his class – especially knowing that her desire for Seth will be very difficult to hide. Her failed marriage to a college professor left her hurt and disillusioned and she isn’t interested in repeating the experience.
Callie has no trouble refusing Seth’s requests to pose for him – until her own nude model has to cancel her session as well. Seth makes Callie a proposition; if she’ll agree to sit with her back bared for him he’ll pose completely nude for her. Against her better judgment, Callie agrees to Seth’s plan but she’s extremely uncomfortable with how vulnerable this situation makes her feel. However, Seth feels like there’s finally hope that Callie’s as attracted to him as he is to her. Why else would she be so evasive and discomfited by spending any time together? Seth isn’t above seizing any opportunity to see Callie naked but what happens is so much more than he could have ever dared to dream.
The movie ‘Ghost’ with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore cemented pottery as an ‘erotic’ art in my mind but Bronwyn Green amps it up another notch with her story BODY OF ART. There’s just something so sensual in all forms of art – whether it’s viewing or creating and when you throw in human emotions it becomes downright sexy. Bronwyn Green’s writing captures the beauty of two art forms along with the intensity of Seth and Callie’s emotional connection in a story that positively sizzles. I loved Seth’s single-minded pursuit of Callie and had to chuckle at her reasoning why they couldn’t be together. BODY OF ART will have readers sweating, chuckling, sighing and maybe even signing up for one or two art classes at the local college.
