4 Magical Stars!
Short, Sexy and Seductive! I Want More... 

The Review: 
This quick-read novella was just what I was looking for! Exposed: Laid Bare was an exciting, short read that both thrilled me and had me wanting more with it’s interesting characters, steamy scenes and paranormal feel. 

Dahlia Vaughn is twenty-six and is an award winning photographer slated to photograph the elusive Lucien Chambers for Lucent Magazine. Dahlia is innocent, shy and an all around good girl but she knows something is missing from her life. 

Lucien Chambers is a successful, twenty-nine year old entrepreneur who’s Chicago’s most eligible bachelor. His high success and his amazing good looks are just two of the mysterious things about him. Successful as he is, he’s somewhat of a recluse and we don’t know much about him.

When Dahlia and Lucien meet up, she’s instantly taken from a shy sweetness to a sultry vixen in the blink of an eye and she knows it’s all due to Lucien... even though she doesn't know the exact cause of his powerful pull over her.

Their chemistry is hot and Lucien’s intense vibe is sexy and seductive. He’s so aloof that you never know what he’s thinking and that both intrigued me and lured me in... enough so that I can’t get him out of my head. I want... no NEED, to know more about him. I want to know what he is, how he was able to do the things to Dahlia he did and what it all means for their future... if in fact they have a future.

We get very little insight into him other than one sentence that lets us believe that his pull to her is as strong as her pull to him and I so hope that in the next installment we find out if all this was a game to him or if he really in fact felt more for Dahlia than lust or saw her as more than a plaything.

I absolutely loved the mystery surrounding Lucien. He’s definitely on my “must-stalk” list so I can discover all his secrets! 

If you’re looking for a short, interesting, different and thrilling story, this should certainly be added to your read pile. I can’t wait for the next book!
