"It's your body that I want to draw, not your clothes."

Well, that's what she was afraid of! Hardworking estate agent Natasha Gordon finds her reputation in tatters when an ad she created gets bungled. She'll do anything to restore her good name—even beg seriously sexy artist Darius Hadley to give her another chance to sell his ancestral home. Only, he drives a hard bargain: Natasha must pose naked, for his eyes only?!

He's asking Natasha to take him on trust. But she's learned the hard way not to trust men—particularly those she's working with?and let alone men she's taking her clothes off for!

Darius's next outrageous statement? "I will, too—if it will make it easier for you.?"

My Review

"It's your body that I want to draw, not your clothes."

Darius's next outrageous statement? "I will, too—if it will make it easier for you.?" 

With quotes like these, you'd think this was going to be a really good book, you'd think it'd have at least some steam, and it does too bad it's all in the character's heads. Up until 42% where I stopped reading. By that point Natasha and Darius had two encounters and one was for about 5 minutes and the other about 15 minutes, so the entire rest of the dialogue is in each of their heads. This book is mostly talk and not much doing. So much about how they make each other feel, but don't even say it out loud. 

For his Eyes Only had such promise; a really great cover and blurb but for me it didn't deliver. In the beginnings it seemed promising, so much anticipation, by almost half the book I'm thinking 'Ok by this point more should have happened'. I was looking for a love story or a good romance, but it didn't happen.
