Publisher's Summary

Ansel Bray, an artist known around the world for his tragic hiatus from the canvas. Ansel Bray, a broody, handsome man not known by me, at all. Long dark hair, blue eyes, and dimpled cheeks. I've never met her, but her image is imprinted in my mind. An angel muse who inspires me to paint again.  

There is something about him. Something that spurs a need to be as close to him as possible. A need to find out why. There is something about her. Something that draws me in. Something that urges me to find out what her presence means.  

Why does the girl in his painting look so much like me? Who is this girl, and why can I see her so vividly?  

I shouldn't fall in love with him. I shouldn't fall in love at all.  

But fate plays her hand. But fate has other plans.  

The lines of my life will blur. The needs of my heart will change.  

What a beautiful mess we've made.

I didn't want it to end

I loved the male narrator, he really brings the character to life.
The story has the deepest story line, Max Monoe ever wrote. It's moving and exciting and soo romantic.
the best standalone book they wrote.

Love the story

This is by far my favorite Max Monroe book. I love the premise, there is some heat but not too much (so much more modest than their Bad Boy Billionaires and St Lukes books). My only complaint is that I don’t love the way Alexander Cendese does the voices of the female characters, including Indy. I love him as Ansel; he does the hero justice. But his female characterizations are too whiny, breathy and high strung in my opinion. It won’t stop me from listening to it again, but I wish he did Indy justice, too. Stephanie Rose is great as Indy, and still captures Ansel’s spirit well, too.

Loved the plot twists

The Girl In The Painting is not the light, fun kind of story that I expected from this author. It is a little angsty, emotional and had a surprising twist at the end. I really enjoyed the narration. This book kept me entertained while working and listening.

Absolutly Perfect!

Wow you guys! This book is A-MAZING! I read in a few reviews to go in blind and not read much into it so I took their advice and boy were they right!! This story is captivating and emotional and touches you down to your soul! The pain and love they convey is palpable and just perfect. The performance by Alexander and Stephanie was absolutely perfection! Alexander really nails the broody emotional bad boy and the softest lover all in one. I just loved this book so much!!

Beautiful and emotional

While there isn't much mystery as to their connection for the "reader" almost from the beginning, it's a great story to listen to as the characters come to the inevitable realization.

There was very little drama which I appreciated and a the premise was beautifully laid out.

My only frustration was Alexander Cendese's nasally female voice that didn't capture Indi's personality, the rest was perfect.
