A sleepy college town. A student. An artist. Two families, generation after generation. A ghost. A curse. A mystery.

Matt Rhodes is in the closet and wants to come out but he hasn't found anyone special enough. Posing nude for painter Skylar Novak may be just what he needs. There are quite a few private fantasies he'd like to explore with Skylar and wants to embrace his "gayness". Being near Sky and finally being with a man just feels right and he wants Sky to teach him everything.

Skylar Novak is muscular, hot, and seemingly obsessed with the man he can't stop painting. When he sees the subject of so many of his paintings at a party, Skylar approaches Matt and asks him to pose for him. Sky has the man in his life now, so why can't he stop obsessing? Matt and Sky can't get enough of each other. It's like a compulsion, especially after he discovers Matt's tattoo. Where did this connection come from? Both men were drawn to Huntsville, Sky 7 years ago and Matt the previous August. But why?

Something is just not completely right and they soon discover the reason; they have a ghost! Sky knows that the visions in his head are not his own and with Matt’s help he sets out to discover just whose they are. The two of them start researching the building where Sky lives and find out it's connected to Sky. And the ghost is attached to the building. But what does it want with Sky and Matt?

With the help of the outrageous Olga and her ability to "hear" the other side, Sky and Matt take on their ghost. They soon discover that Sky's art was art for Art's sake as they help to break a curse in the hottest way possible.

Art For Art's Sake was one of those books that I just couldn't wait to get back to when I had to stop reading. I really didn't want to put it down to go to sleep the first night I read it. Matt and Skylar can't get enough of each other and that feeling of urgency weaves itself throughout the story. The only thing that bothered me about Art For Art's Sake was Matt's speech patterns. No college student I know is that formal. Arturo was wonderfully old world and Olga was outrageously ditzy at times. The story made me laugh and I loved it. I highly recommend Art For Art's Sake to all fans of m/m stories.
