Annie Jocoby - Exposure (Exposure Series Book One)

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Stacey

BOOK ONE OF A THREE BOOK TRILOGY 
BOOK TWO AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW! 

Photographer CJ Parker is a woman who has literally not gone outside for the past six months. She's been hiding from the world, and from life, ever since an unimaginable tragedy forced her into seclusion. 

On the one day where she decides to finally venture outside, she meets the mysterious billionaire, Asher Sloane. Dark-headed, magnetic, and gorgeous, Asher drips sex and animal magnetism. 

Their attraction to one another is undeniable, immediate, consuming, and scorching hot. 

He draws CJ out of her shell and into the world, while showing her things that she never knew existed. 

But what CJ doesn't know is that Asher has a dangerous past. Behind his beautiful blue eyes and confident demeanor lies dark secrets that, if they are brought to light, could mean the end of CJ and Asher's relationship. 

Will the exposure of Asher's past destroy them? 

This is a full-length erotic romance novel. This book contains lots of romance and A LOT of hot sex...fair warning. :)

CJ suffers from agoraphobia stemming from a very traumatic event that happened just six months ago. Every day she has to live with what happened and her survivors guilt. Because of her condition and not being able to venture outside, she hasn't been able to work at her career as a papparazzi photographer so is quite literally running out of money when she decides that she needs to face her fear head on instead of seeking the right help for it. Her first trip out alone in six months doesn't start too well and she ends up passing out and waking in a strange place - the home of Asher Sloane, a local billionaire. Will she accept his help? Well, she has to seeing as she cannot venture outside, especially on her own...

I have to say I found the beginning of the story a bit unbelievable, After CJ has ventured outside for the first time in six months, she has a panic attack and is rescued by Asher, even though there was a lady walking towards her when it happened.. Especially in New York, I would have thought that somebody would have helped there & then rather than just taking her from the scene. Then when she wakes up in his apartment, she wants to stay there because she is attracted to him even though she is scared and confused, and she has sex with him practically straight away; it just felt a bit odd.

Nonetheless, Asher eventually helps her to leave and helps her with slowly overcoming her fears. Asher has a proposition for CJ in order to help with her finances and her recovery; that is, until a dinner party spells disaster for CJ when one of Asher's old flames reveals CJ's secret and she checks herself into rehab.

Both CJ and Asher had secrets of their past but these weren't revealed until later in the book. Even though I couldn't get into it at first, it did make me want to keep reading to find out what they were. Asher's secret led to a cliffhanger ending which has made me want to read the second part to find out what happens! Three of five stars for this one (though I will be reading the next!).
