Overview

Praised by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely, as "Passionate, emotional and uplifting!", contemporary romance author Sarah Robinson brings readers a new standalone novel set in the glamorous hills of Hollywood and tackling challenging themes like the intersection of sexuality and female empowerment.

Ben Lawson is making a comeback...
After a few tabloid headlines, they think they know me. They don't know a damn thing. As CEO of a movie production company, I'll show them who I really am when we hit it big at the box office. My ex thought her smear tactics would ruin me, but I'm unbreakable. Rising from the debris, I swore I'd never let a woman distract me like that again. But then, my leading actress walked on the set and changed everything.

Seductive, sexy, and unapologetic, Aria Rose could break me. I wanted to help her, protect her...love her. Instead, I destroyed her.

Aria Rose is baring it all....
I knew better. I knew not to trust another Hollywood heartthrob with a reputation like his. He was my boss and became my ruin. I should have stayed far away from him. Ben Lawson promised me the world. He even promised me his heart.

But he destroyed everything--my heart, my career, us.

In Nudes, Sarah Robinson introduces us to Ben and Aria. Aria is an up and coming actress who is trying to make it in Hollywood in her own merits and Ben is a studio executive who is a bit jaded when it comes to relationships. When they meet its obvious that the sparks are there but for one reason or another they don’t pursue it. When they meet again later they can’t deny it anymore and decide to spend an entire weekend indulging on their chemistry. The relationship between the characters is both explosive and sweet , and the way that Sarah writes it is kind of a slow torture, you keep wondering if they are ever going to be together. Like with Sarah’s past work this book is very complex, it touches some subjects that are hard to deal with and I think that she did it in a good way, they were a couple of things that didn’t sit well with me but I don’t think that she wrote that intentionally, I think that she wrote it like I think would be in real life, it really got me thinking about the book long before I finished it. I just read she is planning more books in this world and I look forward to see where she takes us.

Nudes definitely lived up to all of its early praise. I had to read the dedication twice because it just blew me away. You can say this book is many things: It’s a story about soulmates and it’s a story about two people learning to trust again. But most of all I think its Aria’s story. Most books have you rallying for the couple. Now I’m not saying I didn’t in Nudes but it’s hands down about Aria’s struggle to rebuild her life and career. There’s no denying Ben and Aria’s chemistry is off the charts. Even after their brief time together the interactions that followed left my heart aching. You could feel their want for each other in their words. I loved the way the story came together at the end. It packed a powerful punch. This book was nothing short of amazing. I wish there was something age appropriate for my teenager to read so she could learn a valuable lesson, especially in today’s day and age.

He even promised me his heart. But he destroyed everything--my heart, my career, us. Review: A very passionate and emotional romance. What starts as a one weekend of sexiness turns into something more. I loved the characters, both Aria and Ben had reasons to distrust and not want to love again. But, love creeps up and knocks them both for a loop. Then hateful people try to ruin not only the relationship but their self-esteem. I thought the Author did a great job making this story more than what you would think by looking at the cover. The back drop of the entertainment industry was perfect and very timely. There is a message woven into this wonderfully crafted romance. Sorry this is a short review, but I was trying to be spoiler free. I really enjoyed the story, plot and characters and inhaled the book in one afternoon, I actually did not want it to end. 4.5Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher.*

I honestly am at a loss for words. I have been a fan of this author for a while now and I am not surprised at how good this book is, but it is different than what she has written before and her message that comes through is nothing short of amazing. I was captivated from page one all the way through! I fell in love with all the characters and I didn’t want to story to end. This book has so much substance to it! I don’t want to give anything away because it’s just so good that you need to experience it for yourself. I am so jealous that I can’t read it again for the first time, but I know this is going to be one of my reads that I will re-read over and over again. This book had all the feels and the heat you expect in romance, but yet it is so much more! I promise you won’t regret picking up this fantastic book!

3.5 stars--NUDES is the first installment in Sarah Robinson’s contemporary, adult EXPOSED romance series. This is up and coming actress Aria Rose, and new CEO of Shepherd Film Studios Ben Lawson’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Aria and Ben) NUDES follows the secret and forbidden relationship between actress Aria Rose and studio head Ben Lawson. Days before taking over the reigns of Shepherd Film Studios Ben Lawson spent a wild and sex filled weekend with actress Aria Rose. Together, the couple agreed to a no-strings attached, ‘free-agents’ affair but sometimes the heart wants what the head refuses to admit. What ensues is the breakdown of trust and a violation of privacy that engulfs our leading couple. NUDES is a story of betrayal where doubt and uncertainty leads to the destruction of love, and the breakdown of friendship and trust. The relationship between Aria and Ben is one of immediate attraction; palpable sexual chemistry and a mutual desire to be free of constraints, manipulation and public scrutiny. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense without the use of sexually graphic, over the top language and text. There is a distinct lack of communication that adds fuel to an already raging fire. Sarah Robinson’s NUDES is not only a story of romance but a story with a message empowering women against humiliation, shaming and the rampant sexism in society today. Simple in its’ presentation, NUDES will awaken your heart and your mind to the reality of discrimination, inequality and bias in our public and personal lives. But, saying that, I struggled with the lack of emotional depth-something I thought should have been more fervent and visceral. The conflict resolution was too perfunctory- there should have been a more powerful and dramatic presentation.

I just finished Nudes. I'm more of a historical fiction kind of gal...but this.. seriously a fantastic read. Made me blush and gave me all the romantic feels with lead characters that have, well, actual character. Highly recommend as a thoroughly enjoyable summer read.

If I had to pick one word to describe Nudes, it would have to be captivating. This is, by far, Sarah Robinson's best creation yet! I was instantly lured into this story--Aria Rose, a budding actress trying to find her place in the Hollywood spotlight the honest way and Ben Lawson, a hard-working CEO trying to save a movie production company from going under. You can definitely feel the attraction between these two, yet both are hesitant to act on it because of what it could do to their careers. I couldn't get enough of these two--I wanted to keep reading, more and more, because I wanted them to be happy. They needed to be together. They thrived one from each other. But just when everything feels too good to be true, lightning strikes and unfortunately, Aria gets burned. I was so heartbroken yet I saw it completely unfolding right before me. My emotions were all over the place and Robinson was brilliant with how she made me feel for these characters. I yearned for them to make it right once again. I am just so blown away with everything this story did for me. I typically wouldn't get into a Hollywood scandal or all the glitz and glamour of the red-carpet runway, but this story is just so phenomenal. It's so much more than just a romance--it's two people's feelings put on the line, teetering on the edge of destruction all because of one jealous individual. Even after I finished, I thought about the message I got from it and the deeper meaning she developed behind the story. This is easily one of my favorite reads this year. Kudos to Sarah Robinson!

♥ I love this book ♥ (I don’t intend to sound condescending but…) As an author, when I write and read, I always look for a deeper message in a book and Nudes definitely had it. Behind all the glitz and glamour of this being a Hollywood romance, the message Sarah Robinson was trying to get across was so much more powerful and I loved that about this novel. I think certain parts could have been tightened but please read beyond that. This book makes you think about actions and words between all genders but especially between women. Sometimes we’re so quick to judge, have an opinion, and voice it in the least productive way. Nudes made me think of how every person’s words A-List or Z-List can hurt, and every day, even between people who are not celebrities you see this very thing play out. Sarah Robinson, please allow me to steal your words, “The paycheck, the fame, the attention…it was nothing compared to the chance to impact people in a real way.” This book did that for me. It made me think and I LOVE that. The message from Nudes is way too important and I think that alone deserves a ★★★★★ 5-Star review. Awesome job, Sarah, from one female to another ☺

This book was so much more than 2 soulmates finding each other. The bigger picture is human inequality and the ability to hurt others as you sit behind a computer screen and post awful comments about people. Hollywood definitely has a double standard for men and women and this book brings it to the front for all of us to see. I loved that not only was there a great love story between Ben and Aria, but the issue that the book raises. The story was a good one and I loved the strength that Aria had to overcome what happened to her and to turn it into something positive for herself and the industry. This was a really great read and much different than the stories I've been reading. It's always refreshing to read a story that isn't like another book I just read. Great read.

Sex, Lies & Scandal! Being famous isn't for the weak. The world is still so full of double standards. Imagine scrutiny of every little thing you do. Living your life under a microscope, being judged about the way you look, talk or even who you associate with. Sarah Robinson did a great job of writing a glimpse into the life of a rising actress. From the first chapter you could see the disaster headed Aria's way. She was such a likeable character that I wanted to shield her from what was about to happen. I love that she had a leading man that was good and honorable and even though he wasn't able to protect her from what was to come, he fights for her. Duel POV's, other woman/man drama from both exes, no cliffhanger and we get a nice epilogue. ARC provided by NetGalley.
