"So tonight's the night you're finally going to lose your virginity?" Violet asked from the other end of the phone.
Danielle paced inside her small apartment, her knees a little wobbly, wearing the new heels she'd bought earlier that day. Although her unsteadiness had nothing to do with the shoes themselves, but more to do with Jack, and the text he'd sent to say he was on his way.
"Yeah, he should be here any minute," she replied to her best friend, sounding far more breathless than she would have liked.
"I have to say, I'm kind of jealous." There was a hint of melancholy in Violet's voice that Danielle had never heard before.
"From everything you've been telling me, he sounds like a keeper."
"Violet, you know what this is all about," she warned. This was just sex, lessons to help her get up to speed so she knew what she was talking about when she started teaching sex therapy to a bunch of incoming freshmen. The job would help her pay down her bills. Hopefully, she'd soon have enough equity to get a loan to purchase the house she wanted to convert into a family counseling practice. That's all this was. A means to an end. She knew, personally, that getting close only led to heartache. "Besides, when have you ever started thinking about guys as keepers? You love being single. Love having a different guy every weekend."
"I guess," she said with a sigh. "But I don't know. Maybe someday I'd like to find my very own Prince Charming."
Danielle was a realist. A life in foster care had taught her not to dream. She didn't believe in fairy tales, but if there was one man who came close to filling the shoes of Prince Charming, it was Jack. Rugged yet sweet, tough yet tender. Yeah, he played the role well, but that's all it was for him, right? A role.
Stop wishing for more, girl!
"He has a brother," Danielle supplied. "Two, in fact."
"Oh yeah? Do tell."
"Sam and Luke. From what he says, they seem pretty tight. Who knows? Maybe he'll bring one of them by when he looks at the house with us tomorrow."
"You think?" Violet asked, a new inflection in her voice.
"So you and Jack, then," she said, turning the conversation back on Danielle. "You think there could be more?"
Her heart wavered, but she quickly shut it down, zipped it up, and buttoned it tight. "No. He's just helping me out for now. Life will go back to normal when he leaves."
"Normal? You think you can go back to being asexual after him?"
She walked over to her sofa, picked up her Home Sweet Home pillow, and fluffed it. "No, I'm not saying that. I just mean we'll each go our own way." Her heart squeezed at that thought. As much as she tried to fight it, Jack was becoming so much more than simply a teacher to her. Just hearing his name, or thinking about him — which she found herself doing more and more often — had her pulse fluttering and her stomach taking flight.
"Okay, good, because having sex has been good for you."
Technically they hadn't really had sex yet, but they'd come close. Very close. Hot, tie-her-to-the-bed kind of close. Her body warming with memories, she put the pillow back and stepped away to admire it. "What makes you say that?"
"You're happier, even if you are walking a little crooked."
"Hey," she protested with a laugh, her throat drying as her mind raced back to the way Jack had touched her. God, she was in so much trouble. "I am not."
"No, not yet. But I bet you will be tomorrow. Seriously though, Danielle, this experience has been good for you."
She examined her emotions and walked to the hall mirror to observe the new flush in her cheeks. It was true, she was happier. Definitely an interesting point of discussion for her class. "Endorphins," she explained, the academic part of her understanding the physiological effects on her body. But the woman in her, well, she knew what was really going on.
"Whatever. All I know is if he leaves, I'm going to set you up with a guy I met last week at work. He'd be perfect for you."
Danielle's hand fell from her face. How the hell could she ever be with another man after Jack? The roar of an engine outside gained her attention. She hurried to her window and pulled her curtain back. Her heart did that familiar pitter-patter thing it always did when her gaze fell on him. He climbed out of a vintage Corvette, one she'd seen outside his dad's shop the day she'd asked him to sleep with her.
"He's here. I have to go." She gave a little wave to him when he glanced up to see her.
"Okay, enjoy your meal at Lucien's, and your dessert back home," she teased.
Danielle slid her finger over the phone to power it down, then dropped it into her purse. She smoothed her hand down her little black dress, one she'd splurged on after work. The restaurant was elegant and upscale, which meant she needed to dress nice, but more importantly, she wanted to look good for Jack. Wanted to see the desire in his eyes when he saw her. And why's that, Danielle? Do you want him to see you as more than a pupil?
Cripes, she needed to shut down that kind of thinking. He had a career to get back to and she shouldn't wish for things she couldn't have.
She buzzed him in and wrung her fingers together as she waited at her door. Nervousness, excitement, and a barrage of other emotions hit her as his shoes sounded on the stairs. Her heart beat faster as the pounding grew louder with his approach. When he reached the third floor, she saw him. Taking in his attire, a breath of air fluttered past her lips, and her parched throat dried even more at the handsome vision before her. She knew that once she went all the way with him, it was going to push her feelings over the edge.
As if they weren't hanging on by a fingernail now.
Dressed in a navy suit that showcased his athletic form to perfection, he stepped up to her. She'd never seen this dressed-up version of Jack before. There were so many sides to this man, and she had to admit, she liked them all.
He smiled as his gaze leisurely traveled down her body, warming her from the inside out. "You look amazing," he said.
"So do you." She ran her hands down his tie, smoothing it and touching him as if it was the most natural thing in the world to do. Even though she wore heels, he still towered over her. She went up on her toes and drew in the soapy clean scent of his skin. Her fingers marched upward to stroke his freshly shaven face. They lingered there for a moment, a light brush that spread heat through her veins and blackened his already dark eyes. "Soft," she whispered.
A smile played on his mouth. "That's the only part of me that's soft." He dipped his head and pressed his lips to hers. God, I could get lost in his kisses. She touched the lapels on his suit, holding him to her and absorbing the warmth of his body. After a good, thorough kiss, he pulled back and ran his tongue over his bottom lip, like he was still tasting her. He briefly pinched his eyes shut and exhaled a sharp breath.
"Jesus, Danielle. I could barely function today," he said, looking a little less composed as he glanced past her shoulder to the hall that led to the bedroom.
"Oh, why is that?" she asked innocently, even though she already knew the answer. Her day had been hell, too. She'd been unable to focus on anything except what it would feel like to lay herself wide open to him, to have him own her body.
To have him make love to her.
He touched her shoulder and ran the back of his knuckles down her arm. "Because all I've been able to think about is stripping you naked, climbing between your legs, and burying myself deep inside you. I'm dying to hear my name on your lips when you come for me again."
A shiver moved through her, and she felt warmth flood her pelvis. "Jack." She whispered his name, giving him a hint of things to come.
His mouth hovered over hers. "Yeah, just like that," he said. They exchanged a long, heated look, then he drew a sharp breath and straightened. "I want to take you hard, right now, show you what I do to girls who overstep boundaries," he teased. "Believe me, there is nowhere else I'd rather be than inside you. We need food first, though." He winked. "You'll need the energy."
"Ah, so that's why you're taking me to an Italian restaurant," she teased back. "You think I need the carbs."
"You and me both. Because I plan on thoroughly fucking you, over and over again." His knuckles brushed hers, and their fingers linked. "Ready?"
A bit startled at his honesty, she nodded, then followed him into the hall and locked the door behind her. They walked outdoors, and the warm night air fell over them as crickets chirped in the strip of grass in front of her apartment. Their hands met, their knuckles brushing intimately as they waited for a truck to pass. Then they crossed the street and Jack walked her to the passenger side of his vehicle.
"Nice car," she said when he opened the door for her.
"Couldn't have you on my bike in a dress." He winked and added, "As much as I like the idea of your bare legs wrapped around me."
"They will be ... later," she promised.
"Jesus, Danielle. I'm in tight dress pants here. I'm not really that much into exhibitionism."
"What does not that much mean?"
"It means I'm not interested in giving your neighbors a show." He leaned into her, bracing his hands on the hood of the car on either side of her. "If you want to take this inside, to Grayson's club, I could be convinced." He paused and then added, "If that's what you want."
It was interesting the first time, and she was glad he'd given her a glimpse into the world of BDSM and the different types of fetishes. It would definitely help with her lectures, but was it something she wanted to try again? She wasn't sure. The academic part of her was interested, but it might be too much for the woman in her. "You'd do that, for me?"
Her mind raced back to the things she'd seen in the club. Jack had asked if she was interested in a threesome. "What about a threesome? You'd even do that?"
The muscles along his jaw clenched. "If that's what you want."
"You've done it before, right?" When he nodded, she continued. "Two guys and a girl, or two girls and you?"
"Interesting," she said as she eased into the car. She considered herself in that position, and doubt moved through her. Did she want another man's hands on her body?
The answer came sure and swift. But the scholar in her was intrigued by the whole scenario.
"If it's something you want to try, Danielle. I can arrange it."
"You could do that?"
"Don't worry. It would be with someone handpicked by me. I'd never let some random asshole touch you."
Her heart swelled at the way he looked after her. "Okay." It was all she could get out.
He shut her door and scrubbed his jaw as he circled the car. He slid into the driver's seat and reached out and found her hand, giving it a little squeeze. "Okay, as in you want me to arrange it? Or okay you'll think about it?"
She thought long and hard, sweeping away all her hesitation and putting on her professor hat. "I probably should try it once, don't you think? For research."
He gave a quick nod, exhaled sharply, and grabbed the stick shift, squeezing it hard as he turned his focus to the road.
She studied his reaction, then glanced around the interior. The scent of pine from the tree-shaped air freshener reached her nostrils. All that was missing was a set of furry dice. "Is this your car?"
The muscles in his jaw relaxed. "Yeah, I rebuilt it myself." There was a note of pride in his voice as he ran his hand over the dashboard. "I took her apart and put her back to together, piece by piece. She purrs like a kitten."
Danielle couldn't help but think he was doing the same thing to her. Peeling away the layers, introducing her to pleasure, and creating a more confident, knowledgeable version of herself once he put her back together again.
"You like working with your hands?"
"I enjoy automotive work." He grinned and shook his head. "Dad had us all in his bay as soon as we were old enough to hold a tool. I don't think I told you, but my brothers Sam and Luke co-own their own garage."
"Oh, I didn't know that." His fingers left the dash and closed over hers again. "Speaking of your brothers, I think Violet wants me to set her up with one of them."
His gaze shot to hers. "Really, how did that come up?"
"I have been giving her a play-by-play, remember?"
"And when this first started, she basically told me not to expect too much out of sex because if you're like most guys, it would be over before I knew it. Yet here you are, drawing it out for weeks. She's never heard of foreplay going on so long, and she thinks that if you're that good, one of your brothers might be, too."
He laughed. "From what you've told me about Violet, I think my brother Luke could be the guy for her. She just might meet her match with him."
He grinned. "Yeah, I do." He cast a glance her way. "But don't worry. He's a good guy."
She chewed on that as Jack flicked on his signal and took the corner. She leaned into him, taking pleasure in the warmth of his body. Her gaze moved over his face, reveling in his strong profile. "I guess that runs in the family."
"Me? Nah. I'm not that good." He gave her a wink. "I'll prove that later."
Heat sizzled through her. "I'm looking forward to it," she said. "And to everything else you want to show me. We still have one whole week left."
The grin briefly fell from his face, and he turned from her as he pulled into a parking spot outside the restaurant. She slid from the vehicle, and he met her at the front of the car, his arm going around her waist to lead her inside. She took in the opulence of the place, and was delighted by all the delicious smells as the waiter led them to an intimate table in the back corner. Jack ordered a bottle of wine, and after they each had a glass in hand, they put in their orders. Beneath the table, their knees bumped, sending heat through her. She gazed at him and noted the way the soft candlelight made his eyes look warmer.
"This place is amazing," she said, taking a sip of her wine. "Looks like we have the best seat in the house."
"That's what happens when your best friend is a chef." He slid his hand across the small table and laced his fingers through hers. The touch ignited her body and squeezed her heart. "You'll probably meet him tonight."
"I look forward to that."
"He's the one, Danielle." The muscles along his jaw rippled. "He's the one I'd ask."
Her mind stalled, then raced to catch up. "Oh, you mean —" She leaned in, even though no one could hear them. "For the threesome."
His fingers tightened on hers. "Yeah. He's a good guy, and he'll take care of you."
She took another big drink of wine, not knowing what to say.
"After you meet him, you can decide if it's something you want to do."
"Is it something you want to do?" she asked, her stomach a little queasy at the thought. "You seem troubled by the idea."
He ran one hand through his hair and pushed back in his chair. "This week is about you."
"But I don't want you to do —"
"It's whatever you want, Danielle."
She leaned forward. "You're so sweet, Jack." How the women in his world couldn't see that was beyond her. Then again, none of them deserved him if they couldn't look beyond his money and fame.
He cleared his throat. "Sweet? I don't know. I've been called a lot of things, but sweet was never one of them."
"Well, you are." He reached for his wine, and she decided to shift topics. "After you left the field today, Liam told me the guys had a lot of fun."
"I really enjoyed it. Liam mentioned that he was looking for an assistant in the fall, too. For the regular college football season." He looked into his wineglass, his brow furrowed, but there was a ghost of a smile on his face. "I still can't believe you set that up."
"I don't know. I'm just not used to things like that, you know?"
"I know," she said, and she did. Jack was a giver, and he was accustomed to people wanting things from him, not giving back. But she cared about him and wanted to do something that would put the light back in his eyes. Yes, his knee injury was serious, and it could even end his career. But that didn't mean he couldn't continue to play football.

"Full Exposure" by Cathryn Fox is the final installment in a three-part series. I just wish it had all three parts together. I guess it's like watching your favorite TV show and have to wait for the next episode. This is the conclusion of Danielle Lang and Jack Rider's story. If you want a hot and steamy read, then you will want to take a chance on this serial. Even though this was a extremely hot read there was story too. The reader gets to feel the emotions of the characters. All three installments are now out. "Hands On" - #1, "Body Contact" - #2, "Full Exposure" - #3. If you haven't read any of this series, then you will want to get all three and read them straight through. Be warned this story includes graphic mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
This is a quick yet spicy read. It is the finale in this series and it picks up exactly where it left off in the last book, so this is definitely not a standalone read. With loads of hot build up in the other books, we finally get to the main event in this installment and it is definitely worth the wait. Lots of hot scenes plus the development of some feelings with the main characters trying to come to terms with their delicate balance. Plus we are given a beautiful HEA a with a lovely twist. A great set up to a beautiful romance, the author has done a wonderful job in crafting this final follow-up story. Hot and sexy! * copy received for review purposes
Great ending to this fast paced and steamy read. Danielle asked Jack for lessons about sex and got so much more. Loved the characters Jack and Danielle were amazing together, made each other better. I was hooked to the story from beginning to end and oh so steamy. Loved it!
Yes! Nailed it. book 3 brings the serial together beautifully, the sex is still hit, the feeling run high, it's Beautiful!!! at first it was like a check list. have to do this this and this and I was dreading where it was going. but the check list is tossed up the characters are shook up and the book is phenomenal, seriously about 80% in I did a dance. Thank you Cathryn for another awesome read!
Full Exposure is the third and final part in the Hands On serial and is definitely one book they will stay on my favorite list. Each part is so well written and Full Exposure was perfect! what an amazing way to bring everything together. I don’t read serials as a rule but I am so glad I made an exception with this one and I highly recommend all readers of this genre do the same.
Cathryn Fox totally nailed the final installment of this series! She wrapped up this story with a beautiful bow and hand delivered it to her readers. I was certainly impressed (and quite surprised) with the way it ended. But I loved it. In my opinion Jack and Danielle's story couldnt have wound up in a better place. I have been invested with this couple since day one and am so glad to see their characters grow and the story line develop in the way that it did. In this last book, we get a better view of Jack's two brothers, more of Violet and even a tiny bit of Danielle's relationship with her foster family. Im hoping that somewhere down the line Cathryn Fox will write Violet a story. Either way, Full Exposure earns 5***** WickedGoodStars!
Great third part to this three part series by Cathryn Fox! It is smoking hot just like the first two parts. Jack wants everything to be perfect for his and Danielle's first time together.so a romantic dinner out starts their night off just right. Both of them are beyond pleased about the night, but just one night isn't enough so they are glad that they have more time to spend with each other before real life sets in and Jack heads back to the football field and school starts for Danielle. The closer they get to the end of their time together neither one of them wants it to end because they have found something very special in their relationship and aren't willing to give up on it. I was given an ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
3.5 “Sweet cherry popping” Stars The cherry popping has happened!! If you’ve read my previous reviews for this serial, Hands On and Body Contact, you know that I’ve been eagerly anticipating Jack and Danielle actually doing the deed. Let me tell you, the wait was worth it, because they get it on, and on, and on. I believe with that I can rest my case on the hotness level of this last installment of Hands On. As Jack and Danielle’s relationship deepens, so too it seems does their incapability of communicating their feelings for the other. Trapped in the whole “two-week arrangement” neither wants to risk putting everything out in the open, for fear of being rejected. I must confess that this got on my nerves and I wanted to shake some sense into both of them. Luckily, Jack’s family and Danielle’s friends balanced them out in this regard and their interactions gave another layer of depth to the story, as well as lots of laughs. Full Exposure was the perfect ending to this sweet, steamy and hot story and I loved every character in it. I really want to know what happened between Violet and Luke, and I wouldn’t mind getting a story for both Sam and Jamie. I wish the yellow garments gifted in the epilogue had a concrete and already physical reason behind it, but I guess I’ll just have to be satisfied with the vague peek into the future we get. *I received a complimentary copy of this book*
Full Exposure By: Cathryn Fox 5 Star Review by: Kristie K. The third and final installment in this three-part serial, Full Exposure takes us to the end of the journey for Jack Rider and Danielle Lang. As before, we take up exactly where we left off in Body Contact, and it’s the pivotal moment in their arrangement where they finally go all the way. The learning curve has thrown them both for a loop, and neither one knows what they want, and certainly not what the other wants…other than their hands on each other at all times. Is it possible that this two-week arrangement could turn into more? Could this be the happily ever after they both long for? So worth the wait! As with both of the previous installments, I absolutely loved the story between these two characters. The story flowed effortlessly from one installment to the next, and the storyline never faltered. Cathryn Fox managed to keep my attention, and my undying devotion, to these characters and their story through three books. The characters grew in every installment, their depth increasing until they opened themselves up to new things, experiences, and maybe even love. I adored the sweetness of Danielle, but just as much the naughty temptress that she begins to accept within herself. Her confidence grows, her love for life, family, and friends changes and morphs into something entirely new for her. Like a butterfly from the cocoon, she spreads her wings and flies. I fell completely, madly, and 100% head over heels in love with Jack. The man oozed sexuality, but the gentle and sweet way that he handled Danielle during their “training sessions”, and beyond, was more than swoon-worthy. The man is the complete package. He too grew in ways he never imagined possible, and opened himself up to the possibility that there was more out there for him than a career in football. That his life didn’t end with his career. Though I could have continued to read these stories forever, alas, the tale has come to an end. I absolutely adored every moment I got to share with Jack and Danielle, and look forward to whatever Ms. Fox has in store for us next. Kristie K.
Save the best for last. I've loved every single book in this series and this final book is so perfect. Cathryn knows how to write and wow can she write the steam. This final segment of Jack, the pro football player at home recouping from a knee injury, his career up in the air and Danielle the soon to be college professor/ family counselor practitioner who is still a virgin and the story thus far and Jack is taking his time allowing her to experience different aspects of sexuality. That includes a trip to the local BDSM club. (Book two) This story picks up where book two left off, preparing for their big date and the "night" they'll culminate their work. Meanwhile both of them are having thoughts about each other, neither speaks their truth or even lets on. Danielle raised by a foster family, gets a taste of what family is when Jack brings her home for Sunday dinner with his brothers, who truly need their own books. They are over the top. Danielle finds a house she wants to buy to live in, never having her own "home"; where she can both live and set up her office. At the family dinner Jack gets a call that flips the story. He stands down from Danielle and we see Danielle struggling her first few days without Jack. And it's hard. No spoilers here... read the book, read the series.. you will love it. Cathryn writes great characters, a complete storyline, with backstory and plenty of panty scorching men. I don't think she's written a book I haven't loved. I highly recommend this book along with the series. *arc form NetGalley and Entangled** in exchange for an honest review
This is the last part of a 3 part serial (best read in order), in which Danielle, a therapist, has enlisted the help of her old friend Jack, an injured football player to teach her all about sex for her upcoming teaching assignment. The first two installments had Jack showing Danielle all sorts of bedroom delights, while leaving the grand finale for this one. Along the way, they've gotten to be really close, something neither of them has wanted to admit. Jack's still hoping to get back to his football career once his injury is fully healed and Danielle has kept her heart closed off, fearful of rejection. But this is the last week they are spending together as per their agreement and one of them will have to make the first move if they are going to get their happy ever after. As with the other two parts, the connection between them is strong, and they share some very steamy scenes! While sex might be driving their relationship, the emotional bond between them is just as strong and I loved seeing them realize just how good things could be together if they'd own up to their feelings. Jack is a real sweetheart, willing to do anything to make Danielle happy and he certainly succeeds. This whole series was a fun and sexy read, and I hope we'll get to see some stories for the secondary characters introduced here as well, as Jack's brothers look to be equally as interesting!
'Full Exposure' by Cathryn Fox is book three in the "Hands On series. This continues the story of Danielle Lang and Jack Rider and is the actually last installment. This book just liked the other ones is a novella and is about 86 pages. So it is a short easy read. This moves on with Danielle no longer being a virgin and coming to the end of her agreement/relationship with Jack. Jack is supposed to be heading back to the NFL. We get to see how their relationship is going to play out now that the learning is over. I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
Fantastic ending to this series. Loved every minute of this sexy and sweet romance. Sizzling chemistry that does not stop. Likable and charismatic characters. Couldn't put this down it was so captivating. Cathryn Fox is a master with seductive romance. Love Jack, what a sexy, hot, tough but tender, sweetheart that is the full package. Also loved Danielle with her book smarts but real life naivety and how she uses that to blow Jack's mind and capture his heart. Loved it. Could have read this story for days and still wanted more. Loved it! Highly Recommended! Received a complimentary copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A steamy HOT ending to this sex infused 3 part serial by Cathryn Fox! The chemistry between Danielle and Jack has been explosive from the start, and this final foray with them did NOT disappoint! Quarterback Jack Rider is home rehabbing his knee in order to get back to his football career, but he just spent the best two weeks of his life giving sexual lessons to innocent psychologist, Danielle Lang! The only problem is, now he's hooked and doesn't want to walk away ... Danielle loves that Jack did this big favor for her, and she's had the time of her life ... but now it's time to say goodbye ... isn't it??
Reviewed on behalf of “2 Girls Who Love Books” blog. This final book in the series brings us to the climax of the story and is a must read if you’ve read books 1 and 2. ‘Hands On’ and ‘Body Contact’ saw Danielle through many lessons of meaningful love, romance, fetishes, and sexual experimentation. ‘Full Exposure’ is the culmination of the ultimate love story yet the characters are unaware that their ‘agreement’ has turned into something so much more. Danielle asked Jack Rider for lessons in love, or rather sex, to assist her in teaching her sex therapy classes at university. Without the stress of expectations, they are open to explore each other but their chemistry is undeniable. Each of them is falling hard for the other but convinced that the other is still in this ‘for research purposes’. Everyone around them can see their love flourishing and their connection is so obvious but will they be able to see it themselves or will they go their separate ways when their 2-week agreement is over. With this series, Cathryn Fox has managed to ensure you will want to invest in all three books. They are short stories and very quick reads. Each book leaves you anxious to read the next and with book 3 bringing the climax of the series, you won’t want to miss Jack’s ultimate lesson. I would say that anyone could read any of the books as a standalone but I would not recommend it. Buy all three and enjoy the full experience that Jack has to offer. Full Exposure is full of hot, steamy sex scenes that move from the bedroom to the shower to a private club. She is never repetitive, keeps you devouring the pages, and awakens the heat within you. If we all had a lover like Jack Rider we would all be very happy women. Danielle was very lucky to find such a talented sexy man to be her perfect teacher, lover, and best friend. The author keeps you guessing right up until the end about the fate of Danielle and Jack’s relationship and I can’t spoil it for you but I will tell you that you may have a satisfied smile on your face during the last chapter. Jack’s revelation that he has been after the wrong things in life all along help him to put his heart on the line and take a chance at making Danielle’s dreams come true and ensuring he is a part of them. I give Full Exposure and the whole series 5 stars. Writing good love scenes that keeps the reader interested throughout a whole book is no small feat and Cathryn Fox has done a terrific job. I recommend this book and the whole series to anyone ready for steamy, hot sex scenes, along with an amazing love story to give you hope for the next generation.
What a great ending to a steamy, romantic series by Cathryn Fox. I am so happy that we finally got to the good stuff with Jack and Danielle in this story. I think Cathryn Fox did a great job setting this one up in the first two books and finishing off with this one. This is a series that you will want to read all in one sitting! Danielle and Jack have made an agreement that Jack will give Danielle lessons in sexual relations before she is supposed to teach a class on it and understand it all herself. Jack is on a break because of a knee injury in football. Jack is just itching to go back and play but his knee has sidelined him for a few weeks. What better way and how lucky is Jack to have Danielle present him with this offer while he has some down time! Jack shows Danielle all sorts of aspects that go on with sex, even going to a club where there is some kinky stuff going on. When Danielle expresses some interest in finding out about a threesome, Jack tells her that he will set it up for her if she really wants to experiment with that sort of thing. Jack is having a hard time with this though because throughout the whole experience, Jack and Danielle are growing closer and closer. They both knew and understood that this was just a 2 week agreement that could not last, but will their feelings get in the way of everything? I am so happy to say that Jack and Danielle do however get a HEA, but you will have to read this one to find out how Jack does it all. He is such an Alpha male with a huge heart and a heart that Danielle has stole for her own. Cathryn Fox sure does know how to deliver on a great read and leave you longing for more of her characters! I can't wait to see what is in store next for us as readers from Cathryn Fox!
This is the conclusion to Danielle and Jack's story. Jack agreed to two weeks with Danielle as a way to educate her on sex, what neither one of them expected was to fall for each other. Jack is a professional football player, but out because he has an injured knee. Since he has always had a crush on Danielle, he agrees to help her. The more time they spend together the less he wants to go back to football and stay with her and his family. In the end he helps her reach her dream and his at the same time. I enjoyed the ending to the serial, Jack realized he's always had feelings for Danielle and she's always had a crush on Jack, but thought he was out of her reach. It always nice to see two people come together and be happy. Watching Jack's family, and watching him with his brothers makes those with small families want that love that fills the room when everyone is together. Great read! I'm glad these two characters got their HEA. Received ARC in exchange for honest review from NetGalley
Full Exposure is the 3rd installment to the Hands On series. You do need to read the this series in order since it's about the same couple. With Full Exposure we get the conclusion to Jack and Danielle's story. While this was a bit predictable, I still really enjoyed getting to know these two. The epilogue hints at maybe the next book will be about Jacks older brother and Danielle's best friend. I liked all of Jacks brothers and hope they each get their own story.

Full Exposure is the last and final installment of a three-part erotic serial by Cathryn Fox. It is best to read the first two novellas first, in order to truly understand and feel the deep attraction developing between the two main characters. Danielle Lang is both a psychologist and a teacher. She is also a virgin, and she needs a sexual experience or two so that she can teach a sex therapy class in a few weeks. Jack Ryder is a professional football player that is home rehabbing from a very bad injury. Danielle and Jack have known each other since high school, and Jack's reputation as womanizer makes him the perfect person to teach Danielle all about the facts of life. In this book, they finally have hot, sizzling sex, and acknowledge that their teacher/student relationship has evolved into much more. I really enjoyed this book and series. Danielle and Jack are likeable, fun, and goodhearted, and there was never a moment that I did not want them to forge a future together. Over the course of the serial, we learn about what makes both Danielle and Jack fit, and why they are so perfect for each other. Their sexy times are scorching, and Jack is a true alpha in the bedroom. This last book brings it all together, with an epilogue that will warm your heart.

I received an ARC from netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review... ***************Spoiler Alert this is Part #3 of the Serial I would suggest going back to Part #1**** Fantastically HOT, sweet, and delicious.....The book picks up where we were so rudely left hanging. Jack and Danielle are preparing for the night of nights in so many ways. These two weeks have morphed into so much more in both their lives. Will they be able to walk away? Do they really want to?
Full Exposure is the third and final book in the Hands On series by Cathryn Fox. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley, Entangled Scorched, and by Cathryn Fox. For two weeks Jack was supposed to be Danielle’s teacher. He was supposed to teach her about sex. To teach her about sensuality, lust, fetishes, anything and everything to help her to prepare for her college teaching stint in sex therapy. Jack is a professional football player and is recuperating from a knee injury. When he was playing, he thought he had everything he could ever want, the job of his dreams, any woman he wanted, money. But then he met Danielle. This was supposed to be a temporary arrangement but more and more the thought of not seeing Danielle again was breaking his heart. “If I didn’t have so many other things I wanted to do to you, I would spend the whole night just looking at you.” Jack has been teaching Danielle all about sex, except for the final big lesson. Tonight is the night. She will be a changed woman after this night. She is more than ready. She can’t believe how slow and tenderly Jack has been through all of the lessons. She can feel herself falling for him. But this was just supposed to be a temporary arrangement. Jack could have any woman he wants. Why would he ever want her? “She wasn’t a keeper and could never be enough for a guy like Jack.” “She’d asked him to teach her about sex, and in the process, she’d learned about love.” I have loved this series from the start and this was a perfect finale. This was crazy steamy but at the same time, the characters were so sweet and clearly had fallen for each other. But with Danielle’s lack of self-confidence and Jack’s looming return to pro football, how could they possibly work anything out? Will they admit how they feel in time? Is there room in their lives for each other? Or will they simply say good-bye at the end of their two weeks together? If you haven’t started this series yet, you definitely need to start with book one, I hope you will fall in love with Jack and Danielle just as I have. “He hadn’t been alive before meeting her; he’d been merely living.”
Ms. Fox has done it again. She delivered saucy, sexy and emotional in short sweet fashion. The Hands On series is full of heat, but has a great deal of heart as well. My one peeve with this series is the serial format. I loved the story but in order to get the full experience, I wish Dani and Jack's journey had been one novel.
This delectable little tale is the third and final part of the Hands One Serial, and I have to say Ms. Fox definitely saved all the best goodies for last! The minute I started it I was pulled right back into Jack and Danielle's sexy little world, and once again completely entranced by every printed word, and once again reaching for a fan!! Jack and Danielle have a very unconventional relationship, he is a football player currently on hiatus due to injury, and has returned home to heal from his injury. And Danielle is about to embark on a teaching journey that has her talking about things that she is not well versed in... things that involve sex! Which has her a little more than nervous, so she soon decides she needs to find a teacher, and when she lays eyes on Jack she decides he's the perfect man for the job! What starts as a fun little teaching lesson between friends, soon becomes something neither of them saw coming... something that has them reconsidering their no strings attached rule!! If you are looking for a naughty little read to submerse yourself into, then I highly suggest you give this serial a try, Ms. Fox's endearing characters will pull into their world from the first page, and have you not wanting to leave until you have devoured every last delectable little morsel!!
