Blog Tour - Indecent Exposure
 

 

Is there a problem, Officer?

 

Jack Garrett isn’t a police officer yet, but there’s already an emergency. His new firearms instructor—the one who just dropped every jaw in the academy gym—is the same sexy Irish stranger Jack locked lips with last night. The Olympic gold medalist and expert markswoman is now officially off-limits, but Jack’s never cared much for rules . . .

 

Katie McCoy’s been cooped up in a shooting range for too long. A wild love affair is just what she needs to let loose, though she never imagined it would be with her smokin’ hot trainee. She cannot get involved with Jack—but a quick fling? Perfect. Falling hard for a charismatic recruit with an equal amount of sex appeal and secrets? Bloody stupid.

 

Jack’s charmed the pants off plenty of women (literally), yet few have ever looked beyond his perfect surface. Until Katie. He’ll do anything to keep her in his life . . . except tell her about his past. But a tiny lie of omission never hurt anyone, right?

About Tessa Bailey:

 

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Indecent Exposure
Indecent Exposure - Tessa Bailey Indecent Exposure - Tessa Bailey


Indecent Exposure is the quintessential story of the good girl and the bad boy. Katie is a gold medal Olympian, expert marksman, and virgin. Jack is a day drinker who grew up in a brothel and is only in the police academy so he can help keep his mom from having to go back to the brothel. He doesn't care about being good at his job. Really, he doesn't care about anything except sex.

You see the utter sadness in Jack's life pretty quick. I mean, growing up in the brothel is tragic, but even as an adult, he is still stifled by his past. Drinking to get through the day, sleeping around, and generally not caring about anything, his life is nothing anyone would want. He has a bit of a roguish charm though that makes everyone, including Katie, gravitate to him.

Katie might possibly be one of my favorite heroines. She is so very accessible, but yet she has achieved more than 99% of the population! However, you see this girl who achieved a dream she didn't have and mourns the loss of the dream she did. Katie doesn't hide behind coquettish flirting and coyness. She has unique interests and embraces them with a boldness that is admirable. Honestly, she is just incredibly winsome!

The beauty of the story is that I WANTED Jack to be worthy of Katie. Was I worried he wouldn't be? Yep. I was constantly waiting for him to let her down, because that is what HE expected of himself. Their relationship has hurdles: she is his instructor, she lives in another country, and she is only in New York for 2 weeks. So, the clock is ticking on their relationship from the beginning and that added some distress for me because I wanted these two to be happy!

Indecent Exposure provides the very sexy interactions fans of Bailey's writing expect. The real joy of the book, for me, was in the  intricate characters that stole my heart.

 
  • POV: dual 1st
  • Tears: no
  • Trope: opposites attract
  • Triggers: none
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone within an interconnected series (you can read these out of order and not feel like you missed anything!)
  • Cliffhanger: no
  • HEA: yes




Cuffed by K. Bromberg, Follow Me Back by AL Jackson, So Over You by Kate Meader...then you will probably like Indecent Exposure!

Full Exposure - Tracy Wolff

Serena Macafee is running from a tragic past that she would prefer to forget but can't. It's hard to forget being there while your twin sister was being murdered by Damien LaFleur. Instead she throws herself into her work as a photographer. Her latest assignment is with Kevin Riley, famed reclusive sculptor in the wetlands of Baton Rouge, who happens to be drop dead gorgeous and looks like he could provide her some extra benefits! ;)

After spending more time together, things quickly heat up between Serena and Kevin. Kevin realizes that he wants more from Serena than she wants to give but he is going to be patient. As Kevin tries to break through Serena's defenses, he realizes that someone is out to harm her. The incidents seem to be happening since Damien was recently released from prison. Serena and Kevin, along with the Baton Rouge law enforcement, try to figure out if Damien is really involved.

After a final, explosive ending, Serena and Kevin were finally able to have their happy ending. I really enjoyed Kevin. He was a sweet, caring guy who spoke French to Serena all the time.....so sexy! He was just the type of guy to bring Serena back to really living her life again. Overall this was a quick, interesting read with a twist of a mystery added in.

ARC Review: Exposure by Aly Hayden
Exposure (Drawn Together Book 1) - Aly Hayden

I'm super late with this review - my apologies to the author.

This book uses the fake-boyfriend trope, in which the fake boyfriend eventually turns into a real boyfriend.

Sam has been lying to his parents about having a boyfriend - and it's even worse, because the man Sam pretends to be his actually exists, even though Sam has created a whole persona that is based on lies. And now Sam's parents insist that Sam bring his boyfriend to the annual Labor Day family reunion.

Ben is a struggling photographer and the man featuring prominently in Sam's desires. And Sam's lies. He reluctantly agrees to accompany Sam to the family reunion after being bribed into it. I say reluctantly because even though Ben is half in love with Sam too, he always thought him way out of his league. 

Because Sam has money and Ben does not. 

Sam works because he wants to. Ben works because he needs to. 

Ben is a bit wary at first, especially since there's someone in his past who hurt him badly, by making him feel that he wasn't good enough. 

I liked Ben, and I liked most of Sam's family (his grandma especially), but I didn't really like Sam all that much. He comes across as a spoiled brat on occasion, and he sounded younger than his actual years a few times. 

Of course, as expected, Sam's lies begin to unravel over their weekend in the Hamptons, and he hurts Ben badly when the truth comes out. Inevitably, they make up and get their happy ending, because, after all, this is a romance novel.

It's a sweet story, with a well-used trope, and while it ends on a good note, I had reservations about Sam's maturity level and his reasons for lying - he made out his family to be so much worse than they actually were. 

This is the kind of story that you read when you need something fluffy with little angst.
