It was just a typical Monday.
Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.
After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed.
Or so I thought…
Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.
My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.
And that was the good part of my day.
Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.
A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.
A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.
A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.
Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare.
Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.
But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client…was there?
REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
5 “All Pros/No Cons” Stars!
The Naked Truth is an exciting, fun, sexy and ADDICTING read I just couldn’t put down! This story will own you!
Awesome, AMAZING banter between two fascinating characters who will steal your heart. Side characters who are too adorable for words. A past complication who you straight up want to throat punch. A shot at a second chance, learning to trust and believe again. A story that shines brighter than a quasar. And enough sexy times to make you swoon. What does all this equal? A read you’ll want to devour in one sitting, just like I did. And then, you’ll want to immediately flip it back to the first page so you can experience it all over again!
I loved everything about this story!
Layla Hutton has finally reclaimed her life after a long break from love and heartbreak. She’s getting her career back on track. She’s decided to start dating again, and with a man who is a truly great guy. The last thing she ever expected was to walk into a conference room and get a heart-stopping, panty wetting blast from the past from the one man she never expected to see again.
Gray Westbrook has come back to town to reclaim his life after three years in a white-collar prison for a crime he didn’t commit. While serving out his term, he meets Layla Hutton, a lawyer who is teaching a class in his prison while serving out her own community service sentence.
The moment Layla and Gray lay eyes on each other, it’s an instant attraction that grows into soul-searing love with weekly visits for more than a year. But when secrets and lies find their way in between the two, Layla builds a wall around her broken heart that will take a herculean effort to break through.
Told in dual POV’s, the author gives us some of the sweetest, sexiest get-to-know-you flashbacks I’ve ever read in a book, which is hard to do when your characters can only talk in an environment with strict no touching rules. But as always, this author took that challenge and excelled! My tummy was all aflutter with covetous looks, stolen touches, forbidden kisses and flirty banter. It all made for an intense, slow burn that continued on through their reconnection as Layla fights her feelings and Gray desperately tries to win the love of his life back.
But just like before, complications intervene leaving Layla and Gray both spinning and trying to figure out where and IF they fit into each other's lives.
The Wrap Up:
With witty, mesmerizing writing and a story that was romantic, sweet, angsty and full of heart and soul, you can’t help but fall hard for this novel. And if you didn’t believe in fate, true love, and happily-ever-afters before, Layla and Gray’s story will certainly change your mind.
Perfectly executed, this swoon-worthy, emotional, all-consuming read is going down in my top-five for 2018! And Gray Westbrook is going down as one of my all-time favorite bbf, ever! Pro, cons and all!
This is an author I’ll always read. Always!
