Overview

We were on opposite sides of the law.

He was a cop.
She was a criminal.
Together we were chaos.
Our worlds collided with a violent crash, the impact stronger than either of us could have ever imagined. But we didn’t realize until the damage was done and we had more than just broken bones.
Leaving our hearts unguarded only led to destruction.
It exposed us both to a war we never saw coming. 

One explosive encounter brought us together. 
One infatuation led to a love like no other. 
One secret tore us apart.

I loved this book. I found it very exciting and hard to put down. I want Mason for myself as he is just plain delicious and I want Lindsey's strength and beauty. This book caused me a few tears but Many panty changes. I very much recommend this book.

4 star This is Lindsey and Mason’s story. Mason is a single father who is taking care of his daughter. With his life being crazy already just what he needs is one more complication. Lindsey is a big complication. Lindsey is trying to get free from the family but it’s not easy and just might not ever happen. With both of these people having not so great pasts can they overcome that in order to come together? Or is them being together going to be the one thing that destroys everything? With the secrets these two are hiding what happens when all is revealed? Will they survive the aftermath? At time the book was confusing for me and I was left shaking my head. At some points there is a little too much information and at times not enough. I hope in the next stories from this author we get a few of the unanswered questions answered. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book.

I readily admit I wasn't prepared for how...intimidating this story was going to be. Given that I've felt the need to cheer myself up a lot lately, I've chosen books of the lighter sort. Not entirely humorous, but definitely not dark. While I wouldn't say this book is a completely dark romance, its intensity makes it seem so. Lindsey and Mason are similar souls. They have their pasts, their demons, their secrets. They paid for them then and are paying for them now. A chance encounter in the building they live in guarantees the chemistry between them will be nothing less than explosive. But the shadows that hover over them make it hard to believe there's a happy ending for them. Lindsey isn't my favorite heroine. It isn't that she isn't a well-developed character, because she is, but I it's hard for me to connect with her. Though I know why. She comes across as cold. Not heartless or uncaring. Just...cold. Maybe it's the life she lived, the choices she made, the people she'd come in contact with before now, but that iciness makes it hard for me to warm up to her. It doesn't mean I don't like her because I begrudgingly do. She is extremely protective of her sister. She wears her public facade very well. She is loyal to her sister's well-being and to her friend. I like those qualities about her. I just struggled to like and connect with her. Mason is a different story. I think it's because of his daughter. She softens the hardness around him that seems typical of the male lead in this kind of story. His love, affection, and devotion for his little girl is heart-melting, and it's nice to see that side of him when he's out of uniform and at home. Like Lindsey, Mason has a past that nips at his heels. Unlike Lindsey, I feel like Mason's past isn't so thoroughly explained or explored. I would've loved to delve deeper into that, but maybe more of it will come to light in the following book(s). This is a fast-paced story. There are moments where the wording is pretty...descriptive, maybe a bit much too, and seemed to pull me away from the scene but there were plenty of other moments where the writing kept me engaged. And while the action wasn't my cup of tea (again, it's just because of what I've been reading before this one), I liked it. In the end, it isn't just about pain and secrets and lust. It's about love, redemption, and striving for a future that was no longer impossible to have. (Received from Between the Sheets Promotions for an honest review)

My Rating: 4 Favorite Quotes: “I shake my head at her nonsense. Drama. It follows her around like a bad smell. I cringe, imagining what she has gotten herself into now.” “He’s a cop, Lindsey. It’s his job to sniff out liars and while you’d probably rock the orange jumpsuit, I can’t picture you happily swapping your Dior threads for it.” “I was always bold enough to use my voice, but never brave enough to listen to my heart.” My Review: Exposed is a strong debut for a new author, full of suspense, secrets, and tension. I wasn’t sure I was going to like these characters, and although she was a bit frustrating, she grew on me. The story line was unique and held my interest, and the writing was well paced and entertaining.
