Ethan Frost, the irresistible leading man from the New York Times bestsellers Ruined and Addicted, returns once again in Exposed.
Will Ethan Frost go too far for the woman he loves?
The moment Chloe Girard walked into my life, she exposed secrets and emotions I always thought were best kept buried.
She wants to move on, to ignore the past. But I can’t do that. Not when she still suffers. And not when the man who hurt her remains unscathed. So when I discover the perfect opportunity to make him pay for what he did to Chloe, I can’t walk away, no matter the consequences.
But there’s a fine line between justice and obsession. As I turn up old crimes and new lies, I know that I’m playing with fire—and risking the very foundations of our relationship.
My love for Chloe is absolute. I just hope it’s enough to save us both.

About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tracy Wolff wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—in second grade, around the same time she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. A one-time English professor with over fifty novels to her name, she now devotes most of her time to writing romance and dreaming up heroes. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her family.

Read an Excerpt

Ethan leaves early—a little while after we make love—slipping out of bed after a few minutes of cuddling with a kiss and a murmured I love you. He thinks I’m sleeping and I let him. Not because I don’t want him to stay, but because I do. Being separated from him for the last week has felt like losing a limb. Like losing myself. Now that I have him back again, there’s a part of me that wants to hold on to him. That wants to squeeze him so tightly that our bodies merge into one. That we merge into one and I can feel his love, his light, inside of me forever.

If he knew I was awake and watching him walk out, if he knew how empty I feel when he’s not with me, he would never be able to go, even to make the arrangements for our wedding.

And I need him to go, at least for a little while. I need to think. To figure out what my next move is. In some ways, it’s so simple. Ethan and me together. Forever. That’s my endgame, his endgame—and this time I’m not going to let anyone f*** it up. Not Brandon, not Ethan’s mother, not myself. When he showed up at my door last night, I knew that was it. Turn him away then or be with him forever. I love him, adore him, need him like I need air to breathe. There was no choice—not the first time I met him, not last night when he humbled himself before me, not now.

But that doesn’t mean marriage to him is going to be easy.

I don’t know how to do this. How to love Ethan when he’s so hell-bent on revenge. My past is . . . dirty. It’s dark and bloody and so painful that some days I can barely look myself in the mirror. I’ve lived the last few years by burying it. By ignoring it. By making a new life for myself, away from my family. Away from what happened to me.
Maybe it wasn’t the healthiest way to do things, but it worked.

I functioned.

I went to class, got good grades, landed one of the most prestigious internships in the world.

I survived.

2.5 - "I can't let go." Stars. It turns out it is possible to rewrite the same things again and again over almost 3 books with just enough differences and a few twists in the plot-line so that it keeps things fluid. I won't argue that sometimes that can be a good thing, but I find myself looking at the review I wrote for Addicted, the second book in the Ethan Frost series, and I am struggling to find much more to say that is any different to what I already have.  This series started out with one of the best opening chapters I have read in a long while, it was that good I still remember it, but since then it seem's to have drifted off into average, which is a shame, as I have become a big fan of this authors writing recently. The main problem I have is that Chloe is still on the same assume, overreact, melt-down and apologize cycle she has pretty much been on since the middle of book one, and Ethan hasn't really learnt that much from his past mistakes in relation to full disclosure with her, and is still for the most part doing what he thinks is right, and not telling her about it half of the time.  The first half of the book is pretty much sex, 'I love you' followed by more sex with the inclusion of (view spoiler) then there are a few more 'I love yous' followed by them having more sex, and the inevitable row. I have come to have high expectations from Tracy Wolff, but sometimes a story needs more than just well written sex to carry the bulk of it. The situation with Ethan's brother was well executed, and I loved that Chloe's BFF Tori had more page time, there is a story to be told at some point with her, I am betting.  I had put this couple to bed at the end of book two, their inclusion in the interim in the Play Me novella series was a great little catch-up, but in all honestly the first half of this book could have been easily cut down into a couple of chapters, I think it would have helped the flow of the rest of the book, if it hadn't taken so long to get going. Not sure in all honesty, whether I will be looking to read the next installment, but never say never! ARC generously provided via Netgalley, in exchange for the above honest review.

Exposed by Tracy Wolff is the third novel in her Ethan Frost series. This is a wonderful, steamy romance told this time from both Chloe AND Ethan's POV's. As much as I loved the first two books in this series (Ruined and Addicted) the added peek inside Ethan's head was an awesome addition to this book. We pick up right where book 2, Addicted, left off before the epilogue and we tie in to the spin-off series, Play Me 1-5, which focuses on Ethans best friend Sebastian and his love interest Aria. Prepare yourself for some major tension and plot twists. This book gets down to the nitty gritty and deals with Ethan's miserable excuse for a brother Brandon and how Ethan takes him down for the damage he caused in his past. It also showcases a bit more back and forth with Chloe's issues and how she has a tendency to run from Ethan, which is infuriating, but there it is. We also get to see how strong she can be for Ethan when she sticks to it so she redeems herself from me wanting to b*tch-slap her a few times. Tracy Wolff is definitely on my list of favorite authors and she should be on yours too.

Fantastic conclusion to the series. Ethan and Chloe have dealt with so much to be together he should just be happy. But with Brandon still out there, running for congress, without a care is too much for Ethan. He wants to make him pay. Can he live with the consequences or will this be another barrier to Ethan and Chloe getting their HEA?? I really loved this series and I think this was a perfect conclusion. I highly recommend all the books in this series.

Tracy Wolff is an exceptionally gifted writer and I began reading her novels when the first Ethan Frost novel came out in January of 2014. She fleshes out her characters so well and the plot is always well constructed. I am a bit biased on loving this novel since I have loved Ethan Frost since the beginning. It feels so good to see Ethan Frost back in action. I've been waiting for this book for what feels like years! Can I just say that Ethan and Chloe are dynamite together? This book takes you on a wild ride with twists and turns you never see coming. The passion, the love, the torment, all of it rolls together to become the third Ethan Frost novel.  Epic page turner is what I dub Exposed. Home run, slam dunk, goal, touch down! First off, they get MARRIED! YES! Ethan and Chloe Frost, quite a nice ring to it in my opinion. If you've read Play Me Wild you'll remember Sebastian. We get quite a bit of Sebastian in this novel and I was so happy. I adore Sebastian. Granted, he doesn't top Ethan Frost, but he's pretty awesome.  I am anxiously awaiting the next novel, Flawed.

More of the same. 1st book was worth the read. Book 2&3 could have been cut and narrowed to 1 book. Too much repetitive bs to give more than 2 stars. Dissappointed. s.

Was this even the same author? Or the same characters from the first two books? It was good just not as great. I didn't get the same feel for the characters as the first two books not to mention Choloe went from a red head to a blond then strawberry blond without coloring her hair.

I really liked this! It's definitely overly dramatic, but I enjoy books that are all about deep passionate love, and the whole I can't handle life without you attitude, so this book was a win for me. This is the first book I read in this series, so I'm missing the build up to this part of the story, but I don't feel like I couldn't follow the story, but I do recommend reading the first books; which I plan to do in the near feature. So, having not read the other books and not knowing if Ethan wasn't always his excellent self, I have to say he is great! I like that Ethan and Chloe had a fun relationship, passion is great, but I like the addition of the couples play off each other, it helps make them seem more real, and Ethan being a good guy and not being some brooding bad boy was a nice change to read. And overall, I liked Chloe, there were a couple of times where I think how she handles things was over the top, but I do think she has an inner strength that was nice to see. One thing I didn't like was the addition of a certain element, which I don't want to spoil, so I'll be vague, but I am getting tired of the whole, this is the next natural progression of a relationship, so let's go ahead and have this be in the story because that's what happens; everything doesn't need to be thrown in. But, that thing is a small one, and so many books do it, that I suppose I'll just have to deal. Okay, that's probably confusing, but ah well. There's quite a bit of sex in this book, but I don't feel like it was too much, the couple actually do other things when they are alone together instead of just having sex all the time, the couple actually spends time talking to each other. As I said earlier, I do love that whole you are my whole life mentality, so I loved that aspect. This book was a sweet and passionate romance, and the characters are adorable together!

4 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, secrets, and heartbreak.  If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Ruined (Ethan Frost, #1) Addicted (Ethan Frost, #2) This is more of Chloe and Ethan’s story. Ethan needs to settle the past issues.  With Chloe still suffering he needs to deal with it.  He can’t take her being in pain like she is.  When you protect someone at all costs just how far are you willing to go?  There is a time for revenge and a time to let go.  Which path will be chosen?  If you pick the wrong path will you lose your woman forever?  Can they move on and fix the issues they have in their relationship without more secrets and heartache? I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.

An intense and sexy story. **********Exposed by Tracy Wolff is part of the ‘Ethan Wolfe’ series but is also connected to the world explored in the ‘Play Me’ series. Ethan has finally worked through some of his issues enough to convince Chloe that, despite all of their complicated history, they do indeed belong together for the rest of their lives. Their searingly incandescent and carnal connection is destined to continue to weather significant challenges, but if they can convince one another to trust that what they have is real, and to give each other unconditional support, they can get past whatever the world throws at them…or can they? This wickedly sensual contemporary romance novella is part of a series that I have not read, yet I had no trouble making a connection with the characters and getting a feel for the challenges they have had to overcome to reach this point. I was shocked and appalled to read about Chloe’s history and the role Ethan and his family have played in damaging her psyche and a little concerned about the degree of recovery she has achieved and whether her self-image is sufficiently bolstered, but I liked that she continued to progress throughout the story and even began challenging the very dominant and forceful Ethan. There are certain aspects of this story that are uncomfortable to me, as one of my personal issues is the dichotomy between the infliction of a multiplicity of bruises as “marks of ownership” and the willingness to accept them as a compliment…although I have been informed that there are definitely people who savor this condition. This story contains a significant amount of angst and emotionalism, not to mention frequent and intense intimate encounters, but overall there is a nice progression aided by delightful interludes with Chloe’s best friend, Tori. The unexpected twists add to the intense and atmospheric relationship and make this a mesmerizing and exciting story that will make one breathless for multiple reasons, and I will be curious to see how matters continue to unfold, especially since Tori also deserves to get her own time in the spotlight. A copy of this title was provided to me for my review.

Tracy Wolff is a wonderful writer. I love her style. She writes sex scenes that fog the mirrors and they are in the other room. I couldn’t stop reading so I read it all in one sitting.  I didn’t get a chance to read the first two books but I didn’t get lost without that background so don’t let that stop you from reading this one. This book has depth and realism that keeps you enthralled.  I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
