Roan wants to retire as a model, but his agent Booky doesn’t know how to replace him.  Roan literally runs into Shay, taking him home to his business partner, Tommy.  Both Roan and Tommy think Shay can be the next top male model, but Booky needs to agree.

Genetic Celebrity, the fourth book in the Genetic Attraction series, continues the story of the characters we met in the first three books.  The description the author gives of Shay tells a reader immediately that he will be replacing Roan in the modeling world.  The main issue is that Shay is very insecure despite his attitude.

I liked the way the author got Tommy and Booky together, even though it seems to have made Shay very unhappy until both confront him about what he wants.  The twists that continue throughout the book between Shay and others, especially the confrontation with one of the designers, shows the reader just how much he needs love without conditions in his life, and the author does a good job showing this to Shay.

I did have to laugh about some of the situations, especially when Shay found out that Roan and his family seemed to gravitate toward poly relationships.  I don’t think until that moment that Shay even realized that such a thing existed, much less worked.  A reader learns more about Roan, Em and Jake’s lives in this story as well. 

This was a fun series to read and I recommend that readers read the entire series in order, though this book could be read alone.
