Review

“Brighton Walsh's EXPOSED is thrilling, heartbreaking, sexy...an edgy, delicious romance.” ―New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy

Product Description

In this sexy, suspenseful New Adult novel, a young woman escaping her criminal past is snatched away and taken into hiding by her ex-boyfriend, the ultimate bad boy.

Evie is about to embark on the perfect life. Beautiful, poised, and engaged to the son of a Senator and a rising lawyer, she fits the part of trophy wife perfectly, except for one thing: her entire identity is a lie.

Five years ago she created a new identity for herself, but it all crashes back when something she witnessed years ago comes back to haunt her. Now she's in danger of losing more than her social status.
Determined to protect the careful life she's built for herself, Evie doesn't want anything to do with Riley, the criminal for hire who stole her heart years ago. But Riley has other ideas. He's never forgotten Evie, and to protect her, he steals her away. Hidden from the world, sparks begin to fly as old memories resurface and their passion reignites.

Thank you to St. Martin's Griffin via Netgalley for the free review copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

Did I like this book?

Sadly, for a good long chunk of this book, I was bored. We know early on that the two main characters had a relationship in their teens and have been separated for five years. Circumstances bring them back together, and they quickly find that despite the five years apart, their feelings for each other haven't changed. We also know that something big happened to Evie when she was young, something that changed her life forever and something she hasn't shared with anyone, not even Riley. We learn all these things in the beginning, but then these same facts are reiterated over and over until almost three quarters of the way through the book. I felt like the plot was completely stalled! Sure, Riley and Evie have some steamy times, but other than that, it was the same thing repeated ad nauseum.

I liked both main characters to some extent, but I feel like something was missing between them. Usually I love second chance romances, but in this case, there wasn't enough of a build up in the tension between the MC's. I knew they loved each other once, and I knew they would love each other again, so it felt like I was just sitting around waiting for something to happen. This coincides perfectly with the plot, or lack thereof: Evie and Riley sit around and wait for something to happen, and. It's. Boring.

It's unfortunate, because this book had so much potential! Maybe somebody rushed its publication? "Exposed" was sitting at a solid 3 stars until I read the ending: sooooo many questions and holes! Everything was rushed and didn't make a lot of sense.

Format: Paperback
3.5 stars--EXPOSED is the second installment in Brighton Walsh’s new adult, contemporary CAPTIVE romantic, suspense series. This is Evie and Riley’s storyline-a second chance for two people ripped apart by someone else’s greed and anger. EXPOSED can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Riley is Gage’s (Ghost) younger brother, first introduced to us in CAPTIVE (book one). Any necessary information from the previous storyline is imparted where necessary.

Told from dual first person points of view (Riley and Evie) the storyline follows the rekindling of a relationship once thought dead and gone. Five years earlier Evie was presumed dead, and in the ensuing time Riley has placed all of his anger and grief into the mercenary lifestyle as part of a crew hired to enforce an illegal set of rules for anyone disobeying those in control. But Evie has been on the run; in hiding with a new name and identity, and a fiancé who knows very little about Evie’s previous life. When her picture is spotted in a social column, Evie’s life on the run begins anew, but this time Riley is the first one on the scene, to ensure Evie remains alive and a part of his future.

The relationship between Evie and Riley has already been established-high school sweethearts whose love for one another grew through their mutual connection to the ‘crew’- but the truth about Evie’s presumed death was kept secret from Riley-Evie had uncovered some information that had placed her life in danger, and to protect everyone she loved, Evie remained ‘dead’ and missing for close to five years. Riley’s anger begins to overshadow his love for Evie but when the truth is revealed, Riley becomes Evie’s number one protector and guardian.

It's unfortunate, because this book had so much potential! Maybe somebody rushed its publication? "Exposed" was sitting at a solid 3 stars until I read the ending: sooooo many questions and holes! Everything was rushed and didn't make a lot of sense. One of the main issues that Evie and Riley were dealing with was not resolved with the gravity I felt it deserved - the secret was foreshadowed and hinted at and built up until when the truth finally surfaced, I wasn't shocked at all. Then, the problem just kind of went away. Really? I felt like screaming at the characters, "What are you going to do about this?" Hopefully, since I was reading an advanced copy, somebody caught these mistakes. But still, I couldn't help but be disappointed.

Will you like this book?

I'm almost tempted to say that if you liked "Captive", leave it at that and skip "Exposed" altogether. "Captive" was just so much better! But, you might want to give this one a try for yourself. Be forewarned, though, that if you're looking for more info about the underground criminal world and "crew" that Riley and his brother Ghost are involved in, you won't be getting it here.

Will I read more by this author?

In a word, yes. Even though I hoped for more from this particular title, I still think the premise of the series is unique enough for me to give the next book a try.

My rating: 2.5 stars

HASH(0xa6c8d624) out of 5 stars This Should Be Your Next Read! Nov. 17 2015
By Erinarkin20 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I found out that Brighton Walsh was going to be writing a book about Ghost’s brother Riley I have to admit, I was so excited. We got a small glimpse of him in Captive but in Exposed, Walsh gives us so much more!

This book picks up shortly after Captive ends and I loved that we still get bits with Ghost and Madison. I always love seeing where characters are after the story ends. With that said, this book is about Riley and the one person he has yet to get over, even though she has been gone for 5 years, Evie. And when I say gone, I mean, he has thought she was dead.

In a desperate attempt to get away from the man who tried to kill her (their boss), Evie works with Ghost and another member of their crew to create a new identity and say goodbye to everything she has ever known…including the boy she loves, Riley. When her cover is blown, Evie is pulled back into a world where she is fighting to not only protect herself, but also the only people she has ever really trusted and loved.

As Riley finds out the truth, he doesn’t stop to think. He just gets on his bike and goes to get Evie because he knows she needs him. I loved seeing that side of him but as he realizes that Ghost was in on the secret, the betrayal he feels is overwhelming. Unfortunately for all, Max is again after Evie and in order to protect her until they can come up with a plan, Evie and Riley have to hole up in a friend’s apartment.

There are a number of layers to this story. The first being the thing that Evie knows that put her on Max’s radar to begin with. I won’t say what it is but all you need to know is that in order to get out of the trouble she is in, she has to find out more and come up with some leverage.

There is an aspect of this story that won’t be for everyone but I thought Walsh did a wonderful job of conveying the impact it had on the character’s story without making it the focal point. The past plays a huge role in this story and Evie has something in her past that makes it not only difficult for her to trust, but also difficult to give up control. This is something that creates some challenges in the relationship that Riley and Evie have. That wasn’t always the case but Riley is a different person than he was 5 years ago and that is an adjustment for them both.

A good portion of the story takes place with these two in a confined space and I loved seeing them get to know each other again as well as realize that they are still very much in love with each other, regardless of what they have been up to for the time they have been separated. As secrets are revealed and things begin to come to a head with Max and the crew, Riley, Evie, and Ghost have to come up with a way to survive.

Overall I thought this story had a great mix of suspense, action, and romance. Walsh always does a wonderful job of developing characters and mixing in the sexy times with a great story. If you are looking for a story with all of this, definitely check it out. If you haven’t read Captive, don’t worry. I read both and while there is overlap on the characters, the stories are separate. With that said, you should definitely read it, and everything else Walsh writes, when you can.

HASH(0xa6dea900) out of 5 stars Almost didn't finish Oct. 13 2015

2 Couldn't get into it stars

I really hate giving less than stellar reviews. I really do. I know each book is a labor of love, and can't imagine all that goes into writing a book. However, Exposed was just meh for me.

Exposed is the second book in a series. The first was Captive. Exposed can be read without reading Captive, however I am glad I read captive first because I got to see those characters again in this book.

Exposed is the story of Riley and Evie. Evie is running from her past, part out of necessity, part because she wants to forget it. Evie has been reinvented. She has a new name, a new history, a new identity and is engaged to a prominent lawyer and political hopeful. From the outside it looks like she could have everything she could ever want. However, she is lonely, and she misses the simplicity of her old life. That is until her carefully constructed house of cards comes tumbling down. She is on the run again and her life depends on trusting her ex boyfriend.

Riley thought the love of his life died five years ago. His involvement in crime and the crew the last five years has been nothing more than his was to avenge the death of his love. One night Riley gets the shock of a lifetime when he finds out Evie is still alive. Time has done nothing to change the way he feels about her, their chemistry, and their passion. The question is, if they both survive, will there be a future for them?

The premise of this book is good. It has all the makings of a great story. There just wasn't enough story. I felt like the story was nothing more than a filler for the sex. Don't get me wrong, I love the steamy moments in a book as much as the next person, but I want it to be secondary to the story line. There were so many times I did not even want to finish. I just could not keep my interest in this. I felt like this could have been shorter (even though its not that long of a book) and accomplished the same thing.

HASH(0xa77c5680) out of 5 stars desire and romance woven throughout a suspenseful story fraught with danger and mystery July 21 2015
By Jessica Sotelo (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Exposed is veiled in mystery and intrigue right out of the gate. It's not often a story literally grabs you from the very first page. Brighton Walsh just did it though, pulling me in and demanding my full attention immediately. I'm a huge fan of this author's writing, but within those brilliantly placed words is an intriguing story that needed to be peeled back layer by layer, exposed. Who is Evie and why is she hiding?

Where Captive had introduced Gage "Ghost," as the dangerous captor who kidnaps unknowing, vulnerable Madison for reasons unknown, Exposed changes things up. Riley is Gage's younger brother and they're in the same line of work, doing not so legal jobs at a high price and trying to keep their hands as clean as they can. When Riley gets the call to go nab Genevieve, the reader has no idea who these characters actually were to each other 5 years prior. As the story unfolds, it's clear that Evie is not another Madison... she can hold her own, fight her own fights, and when Riley pushes, she pushes right back. This isn't just another story of a dangerous captor and a naive, weak heroine. There's nothing weak about Evie, she's pretty badass actually. And if anyone is a little vulnerable and raw, it's Riley, with his never quite healed broken heart he's been living with since he thought his Evie had died.

Five years have passed with Evie being in hiding, Riley believing her dead, and no answers as to why. What's clear, however, is the scorching hot sexual tension brimming between them, the evident longing even though the two are so stubborn and reluctant to admit it. Instead, their longing is masked beneath snarky, sarcastic digs at the other and underhanded banter whipping back and forth. I loved that...loved the push and pull, the mystery, the obvious desire and romance woven throughout a suspenseful story fraught with danger and mystery.

This story takes sexy up several notches from previous Brighton Walsh books. The chemistry and heat between Riley and Evie is off the charts. While everything seems uncertain, secrets and lies make a happy ending seem far out of reach, the physical nature of this relationship is the one thing they get right. It's hot...so so hot.

I swear Brighton Walsh's writing gets better and better with each new release. She tackles some intense material in this book, allowing Evie to tell her painful story in a way that feels very honest and authentic. Layered beyond that story line is the complex, suspense-driven aspect of why Evie is hiding and who she's running from. The gravity of the history Evie and Riley shared, all that was between them and all that was lost when she disappeared, all of it culminates with the danger lurking outside and Evie's demons coming back to haunt her to make this one seriously consuming story. So much is happening within these pages, so much meaty layers juxtapose together to make these characters who they are. This story is intense in moments, frightening in others, and always sexy. This angsty romance captivated me from the very start and never let up. With Exposed comes my certainty that Brighton Walsh is an author everyone needs to be reading.

REVIEW:
"Exposed" is the second book in Brighton Walsh's Captive series. It was edgy without being too dark. It was an emotional second chance romance that tugged at my heart strings. The romance was hot, the characters were vivid and the plot was unique. I really love Brighton Walsh's writing style. She's a great storyteller and really draws the reader into the lives of her characters so you experience their story along with them. I enjoyed the first book, "Captive" but "Exposed" was even better. I fell in love with Riley! He was a secondary character in the first book and he intrigued me enough to want to read his book. He's a swoon-worthy protective hero and you'll fall in love with him too. I recommend you read both books in this series but each book can be read as a standalone so you don't need to read "Captive" in order to enjoy "Exposed". I recommend this series for romance lovers looking for a love story with suspense, danger and heat.
