Victor is a very temperamental artist who knows how to push peoplesí buttons and in most cases not in a good way.  Preparing for his latest Manhattan showing his unpredictable mood is in full swing much to the chagrin of Ben, the man in charge of the construction crew remolding the gallery.  Ben proves to be an impressive adversary and one Victor could not resist.

Ben doesnít know what to make of the delicate artist with the devil tongue.  Part of him wants to kill him while the other part of him wants to kiss every inch of him.  Spending time alone with Victor after the rest of his crew leaves for the evening Ben is finding the need to kiss Victor is much stronger than he thought.

Two men from two different worlds prove that opposites certainly do attract in Jade Falconerís Eye of the Beholder. This was a fantastic story.  Victor is very soft and delicate in appearance but donít let appearances fool you, Victor has a weapon in his words.  But I found Victorís attitude was his way of protecting himself, in reality he was very insecure about his art, and how people may perceive him, but he was not one to show that on the outside.  Ben was awesome!  Heís this big beautiful brawny construction worker who has nothing in common with someone like Victor except that he also could not see his own worth.  I like them together because they had a special love without being schmaltzy. Normally I love the sweet and mushy romances but it would not have fit for Victor and Ben.  Ms Falconer did a great job with these characters and I enjoyed reading Eye of the Beholder.
