Wordy Wednesday: An Excerpt from Model Student by Shae Connor
Is a week long enough to fall in love? In Model Student, it's more than enough time for Aaron, a model who attends NYU's film school, to find out everything he needs to know about Matt, a journalism student who wants to interview Aaron for his senior project. Sparks fly the first day they meet.
The coffee shop around the corner was quiet. Aaron supposed it was because of the gorgeous weather. It was first really nice spring day of the year, and people were probably out spending time enjoying it. Maybe he'd do that tomorrow; it was supposed to be even more beautiful.
Not as beautiful as the man sitting across from him. The sun glinted off Matt's hair through the window, and Aaron watched, fascinated, as the light formed a halo around Matt's head. Golden boy, Aaron thought, smiling at himself.
Matt caught the smile. "Something funny?" he asked, eyes glowing like his hair. Aaron shook his head.
"No, nothing, just enjoying the view," he said softly, not even trying to pretend he was looking outside. Matt blushed again, and Aaron smiled wider. "Sorry, didn't mean to embarrass you."
Matt looked up at him from under his lashes, heat behind his eyes. "Not embarrassed, exactly," he murmured. Aaron swallowed as he understood Matt's meaning.
