 Photographer CJ Parker is a woman who has literally not gone outside for the past six months. She’s been hiding from the world, and from life, ever since an unimaginable tragedy forced her into seclusion.

On the one day where she decides to finally venture outside, she meets the mysterious billionaire, Asher Sloane. Dark-headed, magnetic, and gorgeous, Asher drips sex and animal magnetism. He draws CJ out of her shell and into the world, while showing her things that she never knew existed.

What CJ doesn’t know is that Asher has a dangerous past. Behind his beautiful blue eyes and confident demeanor lies dark secrets that, if they are brought to light, could mean the end of CJ and Asher’s relationship.

Will the exposure of Asher’s past destroy them?

 
Exposure by Annie Jocoby

ExposureAttraction and magnetic lust pulled two people from two completely different pasts together when one powerful, sexy and very wealthy man rescued a damsel in distress in the middle of Soho. CJ has suffered from agraphobia since a traumatic event in her past. Asher began a quest to pull her from her self-imposed prison while keeping his own past deeply hidden from this fragile woman. Of course, we all know that one’s past will eventually catch up with them and Asher’s does, leaving CJ reeling with doubt, insecurities and beginning the downward spiral back into her own personal hell.

by Annie Jocoby has an intriguing plot and makes no bones about being an erotic romance. The concept of the mysterious billionaire helping the struggling female is always a good hook, two worlds colliding in passion and heat. Annie Jocoby moved this tale along at a good pace, but veered left and into the bedroom, limo, hall, etc., just as the tension for the rest of the plot was reaching some great momentum. It caused a few jolts for me that took me out of the story for a second. She does not ask us to like her characters, as she casts shadows over her billionaire. He came across as wanting to warm and caring, but only as long as he was in total control over CJ.

The romantic scenes lacked the magical passion and sensual heat and came across as more crude than earthy and seemed to be placed as often as possible. The potential for a searing romantic read with an intriguing plot fell just a little short for me.

I received this copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
