There are some people in life who know exactly how to push your buttons. For me, it’s Rye Peterson. We can’t spend more than ten minutes together before we’re at each other’s throats, which makes working together that much harder. Rye is the bassist for Kill John, the biggest rock band in the world, and I am his publicist. It doesn’t help that the man is gorgeous, funny, talented, and…never takes anything seriously. Avoidance is key.
But everything changes when he overhears something he shouldn’t: a confession made in a moment of weakness. Now the man I’ve tried so hard to ignore is offering me the greatest temptation of all—him.
Brenna James is the one. The one I can’t have. The one I can’t get out of my mind. Believe me, I’ve tried; the woman loathes me. I managed well enough—until I heard her say she’s as lonely as I am. That she needed to be touched, held, satisfied. And I could no longer deny the truth: I wanted to be the one to give her what she craved.
I convinced her that it would just be sex, mutual satisfaction with nothing deeper. But the moment I have her, she becomes my world. I’ve never given her a good reason to trust me before. Now, I’ve got to show Brenna that we’re so much better together than we ever were apart.
Things are going to get messy. But getting messy with Brenna is what I do best.
Exposed by Kristen Callihan is a frenemies to lovers romance that was angsty and steamy. I want to start by saying I enjoyed this story very much, however, when I first started this book, I felt as if I was jumping into the middle of a story. But that is on me. I knew this was a part of a series and when I signed up for the book, it said it would be better enjoyed if all books were read in order. However, after the first two chapters or so, it was better. The author does a great job of explaining the character dynamics and I was able to dive in. Rye and Brenna have been like vinegar and water for so long, they do know how to function any other way. But under all that, there is a steamy chemistry and strong connection between them. The want and desire has always been there, just under the surface. But they are never meant to be, right? Then Rye overhears something he cannot not ignore. Does not want to ignore. Sex is all it will be, so nothing can go wrong. Rye is the fun easygoing guy. He is there when you need him. Brenna is determined, smart and sexy. But is also always wound up. Can they keep this light and enjoy it until it has run its course? Exposed by Kristen Callihan was sexy, steamy and full of angst. I enjoyed reading it and have added the rest of the series to my TBR list.
