If only life were as simple as smiling for the camera.
After years of braving the Arctic's frigid temperatures or endless hours tracking the Spirit Bear to capture the perfect shot for National Geographic, Meg Jeffries decides to move back to the city-San Francisco. She wants a life with more stability. The kind that lets her see her family more than once a year and comes with owning a toaster or a full-sized tube of toothpaste. But creating her new "normal" is not without its obstacles. Meg is confident and successful behind a camera. A little extra publicity can't change that... until it does.
Westin Drake is famous for fast cars and box office sales. Yet he's a terrible driver and secretly hopes his fifteen minutes is almost up. West moved from Los Angeles to San Francisco, looking for some substance and time near his family. But now that the buzz of his next film, Full Throttle - Floor It, is hitting maximum fervor, West keeps everyone at arm's length so he can protect the people he loves... until he can't.
When the public mistakes a simple kiss on the cheek for a budding romance, Meg and West are caught in a media frenzy. Somewhere amid the backseat getaways and plastered smiles, Meg discovers the man behind the glossy photographs, and West wonders how he'll ever let her go once the cameras stop rolling. Love is never simple, especially when the world's watching. How much are two people willing to expose for a chance at a true happily ever after?

3.5 Stars! I read two earlier books from Tracy Ewens's Love Story series, and I really enjoyed them. So when Exposure became available, I requested it. Unfortunately, the wording was choppy at times and the plot was missing some zing. On a more positive note, the cover is appealing and the character's are well-developed. This is the eighth book in the series and it can be read as a standalone. This is the love story between Meg Jeffries, an award-winning wildlife photographer, and Westin Drake, a famous movie star. Meg recently left her adventurous job in order to put down roots in her hometown of San Francisco. Now she is happily spending time with her family, while trying to figure out the next step in her career. Luckily, her newfound agent has some great opportunities to jump-start Meg's new normal. Since West's latest action film does not begin production for a few months, he decides to take a break from the relentless Los Angeles paparazzi and spend some time near his family. During the interim, the Tony Bennett suite at the Fairmont hotel is his new home. His life changes completely when he meets Meg, because her goodness, and complete lack of interest in his money and fame are a real blessing. They hit it off immediately, and over a very short period of time they fall in love. The premise of this book is good and the emotional scenes are quite meaningful. The plot becomes less believable when Meg has a makeover, goes out for a run, and then comes home to redo her hair and make-up because she has to attend an event in the late afternoon. Family plays an important role in this novel, and the author does a nice job of introducing and bringing about the many facets of the secondary characters. Overall, a fair read.
