Synopsis:

Brenna

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.

Rye

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.


I loved this book. Like really loved it. There wasn’t one thing I didn’t like about Exposed. It was everything I’ve come to expect from Kristan Callihan. The writing and story were fantastic. Rye and Brenna had this enemies thing going on that has steadily built over the last three books and I finally got to find out what was going on in their heads. Their being enemies turned to lovers in the best, unexpected way. Rye and Brenna had a fierce chemistry between them, but also a deep emotional connection. I loved the way they understood each other and the sweet and supportive moments they shared. I was surprised by how vulnerable both characters were (but especially Rye). The fact that the whole Kill John family was there in the background supporting and loving them was icing on the cake. I couldn’t have been happier with this romance. I wouldn’t have minded if it went on for another 100 pages. The only thing I need now is a book for Whip. Please tell me we’re getting a book for him.

  1. It’s been so long since I’ve read anything from Callihan. And now I’m kicking myself. Love the sound of this one. I love a book that I’m so invested in that I don’t want it to end.

  2. I haven’t read any Kristen Callihan yet, but this review convinced me to try this series! I definitely do enjoy rockstar romances and add enemies-to-lovers and I’m sold 🙂

    1. Oh my gosh! She is amazing! I loved this series and her Game On series. Both are fabulous.

  3. I really need to get back to this series. I absolutely LOVED Managed so I’m sure the rest of the series is amazing (as shown by this review).

  4. So glad you enjoyed this one so much Deanna. That is what reading is all about. I hope you get your book about Whip.
