His best friend...His muse...His fantasy...

"A sexy, emotional romance that tears up the pages." ~KIM KARR, New York Times Bestselling Author
Billionaire photographer Noah Caldwell has spent ten years biding his time for the chance to tell his best friend Raven Crowne the truth. He wants her. With the threat that brought him to her in the first place finally behind him, they begin a hot affair he's only dreamed about. And reality is far better than fantasy. Yet beautiful Raven has her own dark history, one he's trying desperately to release from her. But as their passion deepens and turns into more, his past rises up from the shadows to claim one last victim…and Noah could lose the only person he can't live without.
*A stand-alone novel with a HEA*

"The erotic aspect of Exposure is overwhelmingly adventurous, intense, and emotional, and the suspense adds an edginess that steadily amplifies reader anticipation. Once again, Moran delivers a poignant and passionate must-read."

Electrifying! Two scarred souls, drawn to each other. Hot sex, sensual healing, and lots of intrigue to keep you guessing the whole book. It's addicting and hard to put down! Raven Crowne is an aloof woman. She doesn't let anyone close, and she has to be in control of everything. She still lives in the past internally and won't let herself heal. Noah Caldwell is such good guy. He and Raven met and became best friends years ago. What he hasn't told her, is that he's secretly been in love with her and is just biding his time until his past is finally under control and it's safe for him to admit his love and his secrets. Raven and Noah together is magic. They feed off each other and heal the broken parts of each of them. Will they live happily ever after or will Raven walk away because she isn't fulfilled by love? And when the past comes back to haunt them, will they be able to survive it? ** Received free in exchange for an honest review **

As always, I am in love with Kelly Moran's writing! Noah stole my heart right from the start. He spends years of loving Raven, but not able to share it with her in order to keep her safe. He tried to stay content with their friendship until he felt it was safe to be with her. Raven has loved Noah's friendship, but had no idea how he felt. When she finally does, and they agree to a short term affair, all you can hope is that she will see how right they are for each other! I enjoyed the love, the steamy sex (oh yes!) and the suspense in this story! Great book!

I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review This definitely has a high heat level, but you feel the connection between the characters. It's almost as healing as it's fun for them. I loved the interaction between Noah, Raven, and Aubrey. Very sweet moments that bring light when darkness wants to encroach on their lives. Noah finally makes a move because he believes danger has been eliminated, but he has unknowingly put Raven in danger's cross hairs. Will he be able to protect her? Raven is struggling with something from her childhood that she can't remember will she get the answers she seeks? Noah makes photography as an art form. Will he photograph Raven like he's been dreaming to? I loved the epilogue because the journey that Raven and Noah took to get to the point their at was so rewarding to read.

I'm a fan of Kelly's, but this is her first foray into erotic romance and I was curious to see how she would handle this leap. She has certainly turned up the heat! Just as in her previous books, Kelly has a knack for allowing her characters to build their relationships, rather than the "insta-love" so often seen lately. Noah and Raven had obstacles to overcome and they had to work hard at it, delving into their (sometimes difficult) pasts and pushing boundaries. These obstacles weren't small by any means and the backgrounds of these characters were certainly unique, making their relationship fairly complicated. I enjoyed the small cast of supporting characters as well, allowing me to see Raven and Noah in a slightly different light at times. As expected, Kelly created a story that pulled me right in with suspense, mystery, and plenty of drama. There were also several hot, steamy sex scenes to spice things right up! I'm hoping to see more books like this from her in the future! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

An emotional, sexy read with some extra spice and action. Love this book! It is a must read if love Kelly Moran!

I received this ARC for an honest review… and I’m so glad I did! I have read a couple of Ms. Moran’s books and I loved them. This one is no exception. It is one of her more steamier books, so be prepared! Raven and Noah have been friends for years so naturally there should be some type of chemistry between them… and boy was there! The love scenes were very well written. Some authors should take notice of how to write a STEAMY love scene (no names will be mentioned…)! Were there a lot of love/sex scenes? Of course, but they were tastefully done and highly sensual instead of vulgar. There were tender moments between the two of them and moments between Noah and his family that Raven sees a different person than the public… and it helped show the development of their relationship. Ms. Moran painted a beautifully vivid picture of the Alaskan territory and developed each character quite well. You wonder why Raven and Noah are the way they are, but as the book goes on… you understand. The storyline of the two was brilliant. There was mutual respect and admiration… now throw in suspense and dire situations, you have yourself a great book!

I was not sure what I was going to think of this book. I am so glad that I did read it because I enjoyed it so much. Raven really hit home with me because I am a little stand offish with people so I felt like I understood a lot of her feelings. Noah is pretty perfect. I really wish best guy friends in real life could be like Noah. I know my is definitely not. Oh well. Noah does everything in his power to keep the people close to him safe. I love so much about him and the fact that he keeps trying to break through Raven's walls. There is some mystery and suspense in this book and I like that there are parts that make you guess at what is going to happen. I am giving this book 4.4 stars out of 5. It was a good book and it was an easy read. Not to mention there were some really HOT scenes. I would love to have a Noah in my life. I recommend you going and getting this book! You will love it.

This story will warm your heart and heat up your nights. Raven Crowne, owner of Elements art gallery, was floored when Hoan Dwell's agent informed her Hoan was interested in showing his work in her gallery. The big surprise was when he produced a pink note identical to the ones Raven has been receiving anonymously for awhile. Raven has been unable to open herself to a man unless she's the one in control. Her best friend Noah Caldwell has know her since college. Raven got the biggest surprise when the unknown letter right and Hoan are none other than Noah. When he hands her a proposition for a month of time together she reluctantly agrees. Raven only knows a tiny part of Noah's past but as their time together lengths she learns more that leaves her understanding him more then she ever thought. Both their pasts hold them back from moving forward and when a threat arises Raven and Noah break through the obstacles.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This story is a different style for Kelly Moran and she has amazed me with it so if you want a truly hot love story then check this book out – I loved it from start to finish. Noah and Raven have been friends for ten years, theirs is a non sexual/touching friendship and it has been driving Noah mad, as he has been secretly yearning after Raven for years, Raven however has felt safe and secure with him and looks forward to his company. Until one Friday night when everything changes. Noah has secrets and Raven has issues and this book deals with both of these with flair, it was great how you found out about both of these characters and their pasts and the bits in between. I would definitely recommend this book as ‘A MUST READ’. I must say Kelly Moran’s books have always held my attention so I was pleased to receive this to review, as I love her old writing style and this new more erotic book was no exception – CONGRATULATIONS Kelly on this fabulous new book.

Secrets and sexuality sizzle across the pages of this erotic thriller. Two very strong personalities, friends for a decade, who have each fashioned a personal lifestyle, struggle with feelings that wish to be more. Neither party wants to give up control or lose what they have, but can their increasing feelings be ignored? I love that intuition plays a strong role, even when it is acknowledged and then ignored. This is a story about trust and protection and sacrifice. It contains adult content and some violence that could be a trigger to some readers. Although friends for over ten years there is much about each other that Raven and Noah do not know. Could this Birthday surprise be the best ever or will Noah's revelation be too much for Raven to handle? Both romantic and sensual, the sense of anticipated danger is palpable from the start. The sweet, sentimental passages gave the characters extra depth and tied the story together. I received this book in exchange for review

EXPOSURE is one of those stories where the characters made me feel so comfortable they became 'part of my life' for a time. (I hope I'm not the only one who gets attached!) Anyway, it was a bit sad when I finished the book and they began to fade from my mind. Great suspense! Great romance! Great book! Ms Moran's books always are! I highly recommend.

Raven has never been one to trust easily, though she has never really understood her need for control and the distance she keeps from people there is one person who has managed to get through her walls, Noah. Noah has been her rock since as long as Raven can remember yet even he doesn’t know all her secrets. Little does Raven know that Noah is keeping secret of his own, just biding his time to reveal them to Raven. Once Noah comes out and tells Raven he has to work at keeping her trust. Not because he has changed at all but rather because now his emotions are more invested and he can’t bear to lose anyone else. Noah has a secret past that may yet come between Raven and his new found happiness. When the evil from Noah’s past shows up on their doorstep who will come out the victor? Can Noah finally put his past to rest once and for all and keep his happy little family? Or will the evil that has haunted him for years finally destroy what remains of his family and his hope? A very engaging tale with romance, secrets, lies and plots that will keep you turning the pages way past your bed time!

I received a copy of this via the publisher. I am a huge fan of Kelly Moran. I have loved every book of hers I have read to date. Exposure is a little different then what I have read from Kelly and she did an amazing job with it. Noah Caldwell and Raven Crowne are best friends. Noah has wanted Raven since he first met her 10 years ago but due to a threat he hasn't given into that want. Now that Noah has heard the threat is about over, and things are looking alot better he finally decides to tell Raven how much he wants her. He has to tell her who he really is. Raven has some fears, she has panic attacks She runs an Art Gallery, and does some showings. One of the photographers she loves, is looking to do a show at her place, but she has never met him, or seen pictures of him, just his work. Who is the mysterious Photographer? I found some things were really easy to figure out but some of the stuff I didn't really see coming at all. This story has everything Best Friends, Danger, Romance, Suspense and some really hot love scenes. The settings in the book sound beautiful, places I would love to visit, the characters are very well developed, You feel what they are feeling. This is a 5 star read! One Click this

Kelly Moran could not have come up with a better title for her latest book. Exposure reveals secrets held hidden for more than twenty years. It is an intriguing tale of love, loss, friendship, and discovery. It’s also a story of revenge. Ten years ago, Noah Caldwell met Raven Crowne on the first day of college. They immediately became best friends. They never crossed the line, but have always wondered. All this time, they have each carried secrets from their pasts. Now, Noah finally has a chance to admit his feelings for Raven. The only question is if Raven is willing to accept Noah’s feelings and return them. I loved Exposure. It’s erotic mixed with an element of suspense. From the beginning, I was intrigued by this story. Admittedly, I didn’t know what to expect. I consistently found myself amazed by Noah’s strength, courage, determination, and love for Raven. Raven herself surprised me with the hidden layers she herself had. These two are great friends who are comfortable with one another. When they come together on an intimate level, they are hot enough to burn down a house. I say the story has a suspense element to it and it truly does. Once the truth is out, there’s no secret who the villain is. Waiting on them to exact their revenge takes time and you do get a sense that there will definitely be revenge, with a deadly ending. Needless to say, I was still a little surprised. Exposure marks my first time reading a Kelly Moran book. I loved the way she weaved a friends to lovers romance with several sub-plots all coming together to make an incredible story. Her writing is so that once you start, you aren’t going to want to stop. Exposure is a must read. **Received a copy of the book courtesy of the author, in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.** Rating: 4.5

Raven and Noah have been friends for years. She's never been attracted to him. She just enjoys his companionship. What should she do when he tells her that he desires her and asks her to be his lover? These two characters are amazing. Both have endured unimaginable pain. I was drawn into their story from the first page. Their chemistry was amazing. I loved their interaction. It was tender and passionate. Noah dominates the story with his strength and his secrets. Kelly Moran successfully combined a sensual romance with a suspenseful drama. This story was amazing. I never knew what was coming next. Every element in the story fit together perfectly. I loved the setting. The rugged beauty of Alaska was the perfect backdrop for this red hot romance. This book was is a keeper.
