Her brother made her untouchable. But that won’t stop his best friend–and her new roommate– from pursuing her.
It’s official. I’ve hit rock bottom. I just broke up with my manipulative boyfriend and am moving in with my older brother until I can get back on my feet.
Which is where I run into his cocky roommate, River.
From the second we meet, I want nothing to do with him and his manwhoring ways. Or at least that’s what I tell myself. The guy goes through women like I go through a sleeve of Oreos.
But I guess I can’t really blame him for having a big head. He gets paid to be looked at, and has a revolving door of gorgeous women at his beck and call. Once I move in, my brother raises the forbidden stakes and claims me as off-limits. Which only entices River further.
After all, he’s a sucker for the things he can’t have.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Model Behavior is a great series starter from Kelsie Rae! When I started reading Model Behavior, I actually had to go back and reread the blurb, because I was sure this story was going to be about Reese and Jake, her brother’s best friend from childhood. But nope, it’s River — model, manwhore River — who turned out to be the guy who captured Reese’s attention.
I loved how strong of a heroine Reese is, even if she doesn’t think she’s strong. She’s starting over again after an abusive relationship, and moves in with her brother Milo and his 4 roommates. Milo lays down the law that Reese is untouchable, and even though each guy is hotter than the next, Reese is not in any headspace to enter into another relationship. But she does start up a friendship with model River, and it turns out that there’s a lot more to the guy than being a pretty face.
River is so sweet and shows such a vulnerable side when he’s with Reese. And you know what? He’s got a rep as being a manwhore, but as soon as he realizes that he’s really into Reese and is willing to risk his friendship with Milo in order to date her, he immediately stops playing around with other women. But once Reese gives in and she and River start seeing one another in secret, it’s a time bomb waiting to explode.
This story took a turn that I really wasn’t expecting, and really puts some stress on Reese and River’s relationship. When tragedy strikes, Reese shows how strong she is and just how much River means to her. I loved where Model Behavior went from there! I can’t wait to see what happens with the rest of the roommates!
This book has all the same sweet moments and connections between the H/h as her Signature Sweethearts series, but is not the same sweet/clean romance. Sexy, sexy times abound!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
