PAINT THE SKY IS A WORK OF ART!
Paint the Sky by: Lily G. Blunt
reviewed by Becky
A love of art...
A mutual interest in art draws two shy university students together. Ben admires Vinnie’s painting of the university building, so Vinnie invites him to an exhibition of his artwork. From a wealthy family, Ben purchases some of Vinnie’s art and arranges for the artist to personally hang the paintings in his apartment.
Starry, starry night...
Ben commissions Vinnie to paint his portrait, in order to spend more time with the artist. On the night of the sitting, Vinnie fingerpaints the starry night on Ben’s chest... and they kiss. They begin a relationship beneath the night sky, God’s own canvas.
But every relationship has its ups and downs and so it is with theirs. When Ben thinks Vinnie spends too much time with a fellow artist, his jealousy drives a wedge between them and forces Vinnie into the very thing Ben dreads.
Hold tight to your dreams...
Ben and Vinnie will have to walk through fire before they can find one another again. But if they believe, and if they keep their faith in the night sky and each other, just maybe they can make their dreams of love come true.
As if I have to say it, the cover alone is worth the price of this book! I am happy to report though, that you get so much more than that with this one! This is a powerful story of love and how one's emotions and insecurities can lead to the one thing they were so afraid of. I love how Ben and Vinnie interact, it is a sweet love story, with a twist in the middle that had me wringing my hands. This is what a good book does to you, it brings you into the story and lets you live it right along with the characters! I urge you to pick up this book, it isn't only a love story, it is a coming of age life story as well! *4.5 Stars*
