I’m not even sure how to put Total Exposure into a genre, it is romance, for sure. But it is also has a bit of suspense – just not the usual kind. There is no lurking danger, there are no crimes, but still – between Ixion and Evangeline, there is some kind of mystery anyway.
Total Exposure is set in the same universe as Huss’ The Turning series, and some of the characters from that series are mentioned, or show up. This one can be read as a stand alone, though. And my goodness, this huis clos is both exciting and enticing!
Evangeline’s life has not been a dance on roses, and Total Exposure is her last chance to take back control and get her life on track once more. Ixion watching her, observing her takes a different turn than either of them had anticipated. Especially when he realizes this game might be just as much for him as it is for her.
Evangeline was a child-prodigy violinist. Her parents carted her around the world for concerts, ever in the spotlight. Always observed. Until the day she just couldn’t take it anymore.
Ixion was hard to analyze. At first, I thought he was just another bad guy, and he had to show me that he wasn’t all that bad. And that his way of dealing with the past came through observing the present.
Jordan was in the background, but still very much a main player. I can’t wait to see what will happen when his own game takes off – if it ever does.
Writing style :
Total Exposure is written in dual point of view, with very in depth chapters from either Evangeline’s or Ixion’s perspective. The pace is fairly fast, which kind of surprised me, as most of the action unfolds inside a mansion, and only the two main characters are present. The present tense of the narration brings the reader right into the middle of the plot – and it’s impossible to look away.
I think excitement is the strongest feeling I had. And there was also so much hope I almost didn’t know what to do with it!
Jordan's childhood friend, Ixion Vanir, is alone and believes he likes it that way, until Jordan 'rescues' him and convinces him to come home because, 'he's the only man for the job'. Be the watcher and follow the rules.
Evangeline Rolaine has issues, deep seeded, disturbing issues and she resigns herself to the fact that if she's ever to have any kind of life again she must take a leap into this peculiar brand of 'treatment'. Be watched and follow the rules.
Julie Huss takes us on another mind bending journey, full of gasp worthy reveals and heart breaking secrets. The layers in this story are peeled back painstakingly slow. It's a story of betrayal and deceit, acceptance and determination and of course, sacrifice and love. In true Huss form, the characters are complex and unique and could only ever be one half of the other's whole. I truly love her HEAs <3
Some old and loved characters from the Taking Turns series stop in for a visit, but this is a standalone series, you do not need to read Taking Turns to appreciate Jordan's Game. But in my personal opinion, you'll want to.
Long story short, Ixion completely ignores his instructions not to have any contact with Evangeline. He keeps his identity secret and his voice muffled, but they do have contact. Somehow they connect and he seems to know exactly what she needs.
The story is full of deception and relies heavily on Ixion's history with Jordan, which is revealed in little tidbits. There is also they love story between Ixion and Evangeline, which progresses lowly. The basic story is intriguing and kept my interest but the only character I fully admired was Evangeline.

I don’t want to give away too much, but if you’ve never read a Huss book before, you just need to trust that this author will take you on a ride you don’t expect, and you’ll love every second of it. Nobody does romantic suspense the way Huss does! In most of her books, her characters are deeply flawed and at first glance you don’t think you’ll like them. Huss, however, is masterful at creating depth and letting you get inside their heads so that you really “get” them and love them by the end. Evangeline and Ixion are two such characters, and Jordan…well we’ll see…this is his game after all and there’s more to come. I can’t wait to get to know him better.
Note: This is a standalone and the first in a new series called Jordan’s Game, a spinoff of the Turning series by JA Huss. You don’t have to have read the Turning series to read this book (but you’ll definitely want to).
