Exposed : Laid Bare
by S.R. Grey
"To most, Lucien Chambers is a sexy, savvy businessman. But when naive photographer Dahlia Vaughn is hired to take promo shots of the mysterious man, she finds out there is much more to this enigma."
I continue devouring this excellent Anthology and now I have the pleasure to tell you about the novella S.R. Grey wrote.
I found the blurb really attracting (oh just like Lucien Chambers : not a coincidence !) and was obviously dying to read this novella. Just like the three I read before (see my reviews), I enjoyed very much my read. It was a fast reading, compelling and... kind of unsatisfying but in the best way ! Sometimes, a book needs to leave you such a great impression so you want more : it worked perfectly here ! Not only I want to know more about Lucien and Dahlia, but I want to read more of S.R. Grey's books.
I loved the writing : it was smooth, not heavy and above all, I think there were elements I didn't see coming. There were moments I had imagined differently and a puzzling sensuality. The latter was all because of the ambiance of the book and the mystery around the figure of Lucien Chambers. I adore this kind of character ! I want to know more about who and what Lucien is. I was really hooked up by him and what we (Dahlia and I) didn't know about him.
I enjoyed reading about their relation and the fact that it seems to be more than physical... while being really hot between them (understatement of the century !). Again, I want to know more about that and why Dahlia feels this way about him. You could think it was a bit fast but somehow you know there is a good reason for it.
To conclude : you have to read this !
I know, I'm repeating myself but this Anthology has everything to please me and I'm sure every book lover who enjoy romance and mystery like I, will love it too ! And Expose surprised me by being different from the novellas I read before. That's also why I love this Anthology so much : it's a complete set of the genres of Romance.

Thank you and have a good reading !
