My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

“It was a step up from the little girl who got picked on constantly by classmates or ignored throughout high school as if nothing more than dandelion fluff, caught on a breeze.”

“All her life she stayed in the shadows, not wanting attention, uncomfortable with it.  He was the first person to look, to actually see her as she was, and demand she do the same.  No man had ever made her consider herself beautiful.  It wasn’t even anything she contemplated.  But she knew, without doubt, that she was to him.”

“None of them look at me like that… And the sex is boring.  I mean, forget Fifty Shades.  I’d take twenty-five shades.  In any color.  Doesn’t have to be grey.”

“He was starting to think she might never get to the place where he was, that place where he couldn’t live without her, where love hurt so good he couldn’t breathe.”

“I look at you and my heart pounds, when for years, I don’t think it beat at all.  You fill the cracks and crevices, take away the emptiness.  When I think about the future, five years, twenty-five years down the road, you’re there.  And when you’re not by my side, the loss is unimaginable.”

My Review:

Exposure is an intense and highly sensual genre hybrid that crosses contemporary, erotic, and romantic suspense.  The story was intriguing, well written, lushly detailed, and richly descriptive.  I could not put it down and essentially lost myself in this book all day.  The main characters were both full of secrets and troubled and damaged by their traumatic pasts - which just made them ever so much more fascinating.  And in between the crackling suspense and intrigue – the steamy bits had me gasping like a guppy that has flung itself out of the fish bowl.  Oh my!  I may just have to add Kelly Moran to my list of favorites.
