Synopsis

One explosive encounter brought them together. One infatuation led to a love like no other. One secret tore them apart.
As head of the NYPD Organized Crime Control Bureau in Manhattan, Chief Detective Mason Cole walks in the line of fire every day. Between dodging bullets and braiding his daughter’s hair, Mason is tormented with haunting memories that refuse to relinquish control over him, no matter how hard he tries. After a bust gone wrong, he’s thrown for a loop by a woman who will fill his life with more chaos than ever before. Lindsey Jenkins is a self-made woman. Bold and independent, she lives unapologetically in a life of deception. That is until her facade is threatened by a force stronger than anything she’s ever felt before—love. Leaving their hearts unguarded could lead to destruction. Even worse, it could expose them both to a war they never saw coming. In a city coerced by corruption and treachery, what happens when your greatest passion becomes your biggest weakness?

Favorite Quotes:


“I shake my head at her nonsense. Drama.  It follows her around like a bad smell.  I cringe, imagining what she has gotten herself into now.”

“He’s a cop, Lindsey.  It’s his job to sniff out liars and while you’d probably rock the orange jumpsuit, I can’t picture you happily swapping your Dior threads for it.”

“I was always bold enough to use my voice, but never brave enough to listen to my heart.”

My Review:


Exposed is a strong debut for a new author, full of suspense, secrets, and tension.  I wasn’t sure I was going to like these characters, and although she was a bit frustrating, she grew on me.  The story line was unique and held my interest, and the writing was well paced and entertaining.
