A Review of Exposure by Jennifer and Morgan Locklear. 4****
Jennifer Locklear gave me this book in return for honest review and I can honestly say I adored it. I love the fact that husband and wife wrote this, I hope they had fun whilst writing.
So what's a publicist to do? Publicist Shaunna Noble is no stranger to the ego-filled dysfunction of Hollywood's elite, but is she ready for her two biggest clients to turn into her worst nightmare? Kyle Petersen and Michelle Cooper are Hollywood royalty, everyone's favorite celebrity couple, but while on location filming their new summer blockbuster, Kyle ambushes his wife with divorce papers and orders Shaunna to destroy Michelle in the media. Unwilling to comply, Shaunna spectacularly and publicly quits her job, humiliating Kyle in the process. David Quinn, a struggling actor cast alongside the A-listers, is caught in the crossfire. When pictures surface of David and Michelle out on the town, media and fans rush to crown them Hollywood's new hot couple. Kyle explodes, tensions boil over, and everyone's lives and careers are thrown into jeopardy. So what's a publicist to do? Especially when Shaunna finds herself falling in love with the sexy and talented David. Can she put out fires on the set while keeping the flames burning in the bedroom? Love, lies and passion. What happens when the naked truth is exposed?
The story starts with Michelle reflecting on her unhappy marriage after an unexpected afternoon rendezvous with her husband Kyle. Michelle comes across as lovely and genuine throughout the whole book and Kyle is just vile and rude the whole way through. Shaunna quickly became my favorite character and her romance with David grabbed me instantly. The book is well-written and fun to read. The main characters are Hollywood actors / film production / publicists so gives you an idea of cut throat Hollywood games. During the course of the book they are filming a movie based in space and this is where Kyle shows his true colours. Also Gus Shaunna’s dad plays a great role and he became my crush in this book.
The book has a nice mix of drama / humor /sex to make it fun to read. Its what I call a nice easy read makes you feel good to read it.
