Love can be lost but never forgotten. Beautiful, sophisticated, and engaged to the son of a Senator, Evie Masterson has the perfect life. Except for one thing: it's all based on a lie. Five years ago, she created a new identity for herself and cut all ties to her criminal past. But she can't run forever, because something she witnessed years ago comes back to haunt her. And the only person there to help is the man she thought she left behind forever—the one man she's never been able to forget.
Devastatingly gorgeous and just as ruthless, Riley Everett is the criminal for hire who once stole Evie's heart. Years have gone by, but he's never been able to forget her either. Now her life is in jeopardy, and even after all this time, he'd still do anything to protect her, even if that means breaking into her mansion and stealing her away.
As they hide from the world, their long-lost passion reignites. But despite their undeniable chemistry, Evie can't give up the perfect life she's been working toward...and Riley has no part in it.REVIEW:
I've been very underwhelmed by YA lately so I needed a little something different. Exposed worked like a charm. Good plot, captivating characters, and a super steamy romance...I couldn't ask for anything better.
I really loved that this book captured my attention. I couldn't (and I didn't want to) put it down. I needed to know what was going to happen next, in the relationship and in general. Speaking of the romantic aspect of this book, the sexual tension between Riley and Evie is incredibly hot.
Even though Exposed deals with heavy themes, they are all handled well. The mood is very dark but extremely passionate and mysterious. I was very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful prose and the tone of the book. Oh, and for bonus points, Evie is a very strong female character and I adored her.
If you like NA and you're looking for an interesting and quick read, definitely pick this one up. I'm very mad at myself for not reading something by Brighton Walsh sooner. I can't wait to pick up more of her books!
Note: Exposed includes a mention of rape. Keep this in mind if you find it triggering.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Brighton Walsh is a storyteller at heart. Love is her first love, and writing about it is a dream come true. When she's not overwhelmed by the incessant chatter in her mind, you can generally find her with her nose buried in a steamy book or partaking in some retail therapy in the Midwest where she lives with her own real life hero and her two energetic kids who (fortunately) know nothing about the naughty things she puts down on paper.
