The Barnes & Noble Review
BarnesandNoble.com Member Reviews Very enjoyable This was a very nice story about what could very possibly be going on in Washington DC now...corruption, murder, conspiracy. -esgoos I agree!! I belive this is her worst book. I got lost trying to keep up with all the characters pasts. I kept hoping it would get better . She should stick with her romance writing. -Chon Thank goodness I saved my money I've read several of Sandra Brown's books, so I feel I can justify my critique. Someone needs to tell her to go back to romance (which she can write) and leave the field of political thrillers (which she *can't* write). Brown commits the one cardinal sin a writer can do: absolutely none of the characters were likable. If every single person in this book had died in an airplane crash, then perhaps I would have tolerated the novel. The one character that had any personality was such a minor character she almost wasn't there, but she did have the best line of them all when she told the heroine "You're the stupidest gal the Good Lord ever gave breath to." I shouted out "Yes!" because I felt the same way. The heroine, Barrie Travis, is so self-centered, so weak, and so *stupid*, I kept hoping someone would off her. Unfortunately, she lives all the way up to the end. The hero, what little there is of him, is as bland as his name, Gray. There's no chemistry between the two, except for a hot encounter minutes (!) after they meet, and the only reason Barrie and Gray end up together in the end is because there's nothing else left to do. The book left me with plenty of breath, my nails entact,andcomfortably seated all the way back in my chair. I'm not knocking Sandra Brown, I enjoy her romances. I'm knocking this book. Thank goodness it was checked out of the libary for free. If I had spent good money on this tripe, I would have been really mad. -Sumrall Edge of your seat...or page....action A wonderful book that despite its length can be devoured in one or two days easily. The action kept me wanting for more and the chemistry between all of the characters, not just the hero and the heroine was amazing. I would not classify this as a romance and it is not typical of Sandra Brown's previous novels, but this woman is a brilliant author. It truly does keep you guessing until the end, even if you are someone like me who all but reads the entire last chapter before you read the second. -Mindyanne The high profile use of some of the world's most famous people. This is a fabulous book if you like romance books that are not the same as the next one or the one before. This book gives you a sense of real romance as well as danger and mystery. If you are squemish this book is not for you. If you are against violence this book is also not for you. If you love a good romance book that keeps you hanging right up to the last page this book should top your TO READ LIST. -Pachis

I have read this before, but a long time ago. BN led me to believe it was a new Brown book. While I should have recalled the title, I did not. So, I paid for a book already read, and I am not happy with BN. Actually, I would like my money refunded.

I am so tired of B&N hyping books as new releases and even sending emails exclaiming "new release" only to purchase favorite authors and learnung the book was published and released 14 years ago and many times in paperback kundle provides a publishing ng date AND an ebook release date Maybe that is why so many people are moving to Kindle and Nook is loosing marketshare

I was hooked from the very beginning..greed, lust, honor and revenge... this book has it all!! Absolutely the best book I've ever read. I find myself comparing every book I've read since and none can stand up to Exclusive. Sandra Brown out did herself with this one!!

This is the first book I've read by Sandra Brown, but it certainly won't be the last. This book was intriguing and suspenseful. There were numerous twists right up to the last page. The thing that moved this book from rrally goid to excellent was the character development. The depth she added made the characters real. I highly recommend this book.

387 pages of a great book...love SB's books. Lots of white House lies and cover ups. Romance and murder.

I believe that Exclusive is Sandra Browns best work of all time. I loved her romances dearly but to be her first book (I believe) into the Mystery / Suspense was just over the wall. I do not think that Ms Brown has worte anything to equal this book. Couldn't put it down

I literally could not put this book down. Once I thought I knew what is going on, Sandra Brown does a 180! What more could you ask in a great novel, suspense, lies, murder, romance¿ it was absolutely wonderful. This is the second book I have read from Ms. Brown and I recommend if you are CONSIDERING buying it, go out and get yourself a copy ASAP, but make sure you have a full day to read it cause once the book opens, the pages practically turn themselves!

This is the second time that I read this book and enjoyed it just as much the second time. This book was one of the novels that made Sandra Brown one of my favorite authors. She has a writing style that is easy to read and never dull. This plot is definitely not realistic but it is fast moving and exciting.

This book was SOOOOOO good! I could not put it down. I was dissapointed as the book slowed at the end, but then --BAM!-- Sandra Brown slams into you with a conclusion that will leave you speachless! (literally!) I couldn't believe it! It totally blew me away! Ü!!!

I totally enjoyed this book, it has humor, suspense, romance and action all tied up. I was shocked when I got to the first meeting of Barry and Grey, I even went back and started again 'cause I couldn't believe it!!! I loved the ending, it literally left me with my mouth opened! I also liked that the heroine was not a total knockout, she was real. I would really recommend this book to all readers who enjoy goood surprises and are a bit tired of the typical Hollywood endings.

If you are REALLY bored and have nothing and I mean nothing else to read then this book is for you. The last 2 chapters aren't bad. The rest of the book will having you wishing for time and money back!

The first few chapters were very slow moving, it was difficult reading, boring, then I could not put down. The story line kept you on your toes. Highly recommend!

I am a HUGE fan of Sandra Brown and usually fall in love with the characters right at the beginning. I don't know if it is the leading lady's name (Barrie - isn't this a man's name?) that I couldn't get used to or what, but I just didn't "care" about the characters as I usually do. But other than that it was an excellent plot and WoW what an ending. Worth the read!

It took me about THREE WEEKS to get through this terribly boring story! There was way too much 'Stuff' that was unnecessarily written about, and could have been left out. Sandra Brown is a great writer, but she really needs to stick with the stuff that makes the story ... not useless material just to fill up space. This could have been a great romance book, but it was way too 'Cluttered'!!

After reading Exclusive I went and out got all of her books from the library. I don't want to give anything away, but the twists and turns were very satisfying and I'm a touch critic.

This book is typical Sandra Brown - chick lit with a bite.  Her writing keeps you interested even if the story of a reporter and special forces type is a bit far-fetched with a predictable ending.  Throwing a corrupt president and a dead baby into the mix made it oh so interesting.

A classic sandra brown novel in a fast paced mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end.
