I loved this book! This was different from any story I have read before and I really enjoyed it! Exposure is a story about 3 actors and how their lives are thrust further into the spotlight based on one picture. We are getting actors points of view but also seeing the media take on it. The media take is completely out of context but we are able to see why they were able to come to the conclusions they did. We also got to see how the actors influenced what the media saw/reported. This was so fascinating to me! I know that the media puts a spin on things but this really gave the reader perspective on how bad/different it can be. On top of this captivating viewpoint, there is also an amazing story about these three actors and a publicist who is trying to keep a low profile for herself while helping her clients to be seen in the best light. The story explodes when the media catches one moment and makes up their own story to go with it. Seeing both sides (the actors and the media) brings a whole new level of depth to this story. The story was very well written as it has some complex plots that could have been easy to get lost in but the authors kept the story flowing and believable. I definitely recommend this book as it grabs your attention from page one and holds it throughout the story. The are many paths this story could have taken so the reader is unable to see what will happen next and the suspense as to how this will end stays with you throughout the story!
Exposure is the first book I’ve read by authors Morgan and Jennifer Locklear. Based on the book’s blurb, I was a little reticent, because I feared it had the potential to evolve into a triangle scenario – something I avoid at all costs. However, living in Los Angeles and being fascinated by the movie industry and all of its trappings, I couldn’t resist taking a chance. What I got pleasantly surprised me. Exposure is a wonderfully written romance with a unique storyline, and just enough plot and sub-plot to engage me the whole way through. All eyes are on Michelle Cooper and Kyle Peterson, Hollywood’s golden couple, as they prepare to begin filming a much-anticipated blockbuster movie together. Michelle could have never predicted that just as filming would get underway, Kyle would have her served with divorce papers – a move he’d been planning, by the way, for some time. What ensues is a series of emotionally charged situations involving producers, directors, publicists, and co-stars (not to mention Michelle), with Kyle at the center behaving like the stereotypical self-entitled arrogant Hollywood star. Exposure gives us plenty of characters, both to love and to hate. Kyle is that character I hoped would reap his just desserts, but then, admittedly, there was a side of me that held out hope that he’d come around and eventually regret his many ill-timed tantrums. Michelle could be billed as the rejected wife, but what she really should be heralded for is her ability to carry herself with poise and propriety, despite Kyle’s repeated attempts to tarnish both her reputation and her career, while portraying himself as victim. Shaunna and David are adorable; it’s obvious from the very beginning that there’s something special about them. Being a couple in Hollywood is stressful under the best of circumstances, and a lesser pair may have buckled under the pressure. I loved the interactions between these two, their commitment to each other, and their ability to handle the strain with maturity, dignity and respect. I couldn’t help but pull for them. Exposure is not a fast-paced read. Rather, it’s a carefully and well-constructed story about Hollywood royalty and all that that implies. It is accurate and precise in its accounts of the world of both the big and small screen, the movie making process, and the daily challenges undoubtedly faced by the movers and shakers of that industry. It was a delightful story with plenty of plot twists to keep me turning pages. 4 enjoyable stars.
Great character development . Give me more
