This book picks up shortly after Captive ends and I loved that we still get bits with Ghost and Madison. I always love seeing where characters are after the story ends. With that said, this book is about Riley and the one person he has yet to get over, even though she has been gone for 5 years, Evie. And when I say gone, I mean, he has thought she was dead.
In a desperate attempt to get away from the man who tried to kill her (their boss), Evie works with Ghost and another member of their crew to create a new identity and say goodbye to everything she has ever known…including the boy she loves, Riley. When her cover is blown, Evie is pulled back into a world where she is fighting to not only protect herself, but also the only people she has ever really trusted and loved.
As Riley finds out the truth, he doesn’t stop to think. He just gets on his bike and goes to get Evie because he knows she needs him. I loved seeing that side of him but as he realizes that Ghost was in on the secret, the betrayal he feels is overwhelming. Unfortunately for all, Max is again after Evie and in order to protect her until they can come up with a plan, Evie and Riley have to hole up in a friend’s apartment.
There are a number of layers to this story. The first being the thing that Evie knows that put her on Max’s radar to begin with. I won’t say what it is but all you need to know is that in order to get out of the trouble she is in, she has to find out more and come up with some leverage.Read more ›
Wow. I’ve only ever read two books by Brighton Walsh (because I’m behind in finding her) but I’m coming to realize that she’s one of those authors whose words reach within me. She can pull me right in with seemingly no effort and keep me there. In a person like me, who is very picky about writing styles that can captivate me, she passes my test each time.
“After twenty-two years, I’d come to the realization that people only saw what you let them see. Or, more apt, what they wanted to see. Generally the pretty, skin-deep things that didn’t make them uncomfortable. They didn’t look for the messy, ugly parts. . . the dark, twisted secrets hidden away. The skeletons inevitably buried in everyone’s closets.”
Evie has invented a new life after she ran from her last one. Nothing is real and she’s begun to lose track of herself; forgetting her real truths with all the lies she gives. But her past and her present are soon jumbled together at once, when she’s forced to rely on an old flame for her safety. Riley used to be her everything. They went on jobs together, and held each other most nights as they came down from the adrenaline. Young teenage love that consumed them both. But without Evie in his life for the past five years, he’s dug himself deeper into that life to forget her, for revenge, to keep breathing. And the feelings that they have for each other haven’t dimmed, if anything they’ve gotten greater.
“I knew that voice. I recognized it as sure as I’d recognize my own face. Because it was a voice I’d heard in my dreams too many times to count. When my dreams were dreams and not the nightmares that so frequently plagued me, it was his face I saw. His voice I heard. His body I felt. It was him. It was always him.Read more ›
Did I like this book?
Sadly, for a good long chunk of this book, I was bored. We know early on that the two main characters had a relationship in their teens and have been separated for five years. Circumstances bring them back together, and they quickly find that despite the five years apart, their feelings for each other haven't changed. We also know that something big happened to Evie when she was young, something that changed her life forever and something she hasn't shared with anyone, not even Riley. We learn all these things in the beginning, but then these same facts are reiterated over and over until almost three quarters of the way through the book. I felt like the plot was completely stalled! Sure, Riley and Evie have some steamy times, but other than that, it was the same thing repeated ad nauseum.
I liked both main characters to some extent, but I feel like something was missing between them. Usually I love second chance romances, but in this case, there wasn't enough of a build up in the tension between the MC's. I knew they loved each other once, and I knew they would love each other again, so it felt like I was just sitting around waiting for something to happen. This coincides perfectly with the plot, or lack thereof: Evie and Riley sit around and wait for something to happen, and. It's. Boring.
It's unfortunate, because this book had so much potential! Maybe somebody rushed its publication? "Exposed" was sitting at a solid 3 stars until I read the ending: sooooo many questions and holes! Everything was rushed and didn't make a lot of sense.Read more ›
