Male Model

(2004)
A novel by

 
In his sizzling debut novel, Daytime Drama, Dave Benbow took readers inside the sexy, catty world of soaps. Now he goes behind the seams--and under the covers--of LA's fashion district, where a man's body is his business, and one man's exquisite face and form are about to take him straight to the top, into the arms of an unlikely lover. . .and into the crosshairs of a deranged killer. . .Male Model

Designing window displays for the glamorous Cameron Fuller USA store on Rodeo Drive is Blake Jackson's passion. After all, handsome, elegant designer Cameron Fuller is an icon of chic style. With his Vogue-thin wife, Suzette, he's one-half of "America's Couple." But rumors have swirled around him for years--whispers that his wife is a vicious, drunken shrew who holds Cameron's assets in her tight fist. . .that their relationship is like one of the store's many displays: luxurious, beautiful, and completely for show. . .and that Cameron's real passion is for the men he takes discreetly to his bed.

Blake has often fantasized about Cameron, but he's completely unprepared to meet him in the flesh--or to have him offer to help with a last-minute window change during a surprise visit to the store late one night. Working side by side, the two men experience an overpowering attraction, and soon, they're engaged in a whirlwind secret affair, played out on private planes, in New York penthouses, behind office doors and in a remote, exotic beach house. For Blake, life with Cameron has its drawbacks--the secrecy and sneaking around--but it's sexier and more tender than he ever could have hoped. . .and it's about to get hotter.

In need of a fresh look to launch his new cologne, Cameron finds it in his lover's chiseled cheekbones, ice-blue eyes, long, dark hair and hunky, six-pack abs. It's an offer Blake can't refuse, and within weeks, he's gone from shop-boy to poster god. A billboard of Blake romping in the California surf wearing only a pair of skin-tight leather low-riders stops traffic in Times Square and Hollywood. Suddenly, he's the "it" boy, wanted and feted from coast to coast, yet having to keep his feelings for Cameron in the shadows. But someone is unhappy about Blake's sudden rise to fame, and the growing love between the designer and his model. . .someone who knows their secrets. . .someone determined to make them pay dearly. And as the days tick down until the celebrity-packed party that will launch Blake's star, it's clear that the only way Cameron and Blake can hold on to what they have is to let go of everything else. . .

Riveting and compulsively entertaining, Male Model is a wickedly revealing glimpse into the rarified world of fashion--the conniving stylists and creative directors who'd step on anyone to get ahead, the insecure models who swing both ways, the temperamental diva directors, the jaded wives living on couture shows and kinky boudoir habits, the barely concealed rage and need, lust and envy, desperation and dreams they all share. . .and the secrets they'd all kill to keep under (stylish) wraps.
