Release Blitz Review: Contour by Meg Harding

(Shape of You #1)
by Meg Harding
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: January 23, 2018

Jamie “Roxy” Albright has one great love in his life and room for no other. He lives and breathes makeup. Men are nothing more than temporary distractions and romance… well, that isn’t worth his time. With a burgeoning career as a YouTube makeup artist opening doors to never before dreamed of opportunities, time isn’t something Jamie has and distractions aren’t something he can afford.

Instagram model and shirtless wonder Tyler Jackson is quickly falling for elusive Jamie. How it went from a seemingly innocent message to feelings, he’ll never know. Their chemistry is instant and fiery hot, and Tyler’s never been that good at self control. The challenges are endless, though. There’s Jamie’s walls to break through and a country worth of space between them. And just when things are starting to look up, life throws a wrench in the works.

Contour is a contemporary story about two social media celebrities. Jamie is a Youtuber who is famous for his make up tutorial, while Tyler is an Instagram model. As someone who hardly watch Youtube or stalk anyone on Instagram, it is a surmountable task for the author to make me feel emotionally connected to her characters. Tyler much of his day obsessing about how he should pose for his photo of the day. He even had an assistant to help him with it. Oh, what a life for the rich and famous.

Jamie and Tyler connected via social media and subsequently engaged in some long flirtatious text. I usually like reading about funny and sexy texts, but some of it was so long I feel a little draggy. When they finally get together, it was aww inspiring. Due to the distance, they engaged in a long distance relationship and of course it came with its own set of challenges. I like seeing how they make things work and stay committed because is not easy especially for these two sorta famous men.
