Love can be lost but never forgotten. Beautiful, sophisticated, and engaged to the son of a Senator, Evie Masterson has the perfect life. Except for one thing: it's all based on a lie. Five years ago, she created a new identity for herself and cut all ties to her criminal past. But she can't run forever, because something she witnessed years ago comes back to haunt her. And the only person there to help is the man she thought she left behind forever—the one man she's never been able to forget.
Devastatingly gorgeous and just as ruthless, Riley Everett is the criminal for hire who once stole Evie's heart. Years have gone by, but he's never been able to forget her either. Now her life is in jeopardy, and even after all this time, he'd still do anything to protect her, even if that means breaking into her mansion and stealing her away.
As they hide from the world, their long-lost passion reignites. But despite their undeniable chemistry, Evie can't give up the perfect life she's been working toward...and Riley has no part in it.
About the Author:
Brighton Walsh is a storyteller at heart. Love is her first love, and writing about it is a dream come true. When she's not overwhelmed by the incessant chatter in her mind, you can generally find her with her nose buried in a steamy book or partaking in some retail therapy in the Midwest where she lives with her own real life hero and her two energetic kids who (fortunately) know nothing about the naughty things she puts down on paper.

First off, I freaking love Brighton Walsh. Everything I've read of hers (Caged in Winter, Captive and now Exposed) I've been unable to put down.
After reading the first book in this series, Captive, we got a tease of Riley unffff, and when I found out that Exposed was going to be his book I was so excited. This book starts pretty soon after Captive ended, and we find out about Evie. She's living under a new identity, hiding from the man who is trying to kill her. Riley thought she was dead, so when he finds out that not only is she alive, but his brother Ghost had helped her escape, the betrayal cuts deep.
They're holed up in a friend's apartment trying to come up with a game plan and they both realize that the attraction they shared before is still there and as strong as ever. So what do they do? Get it on. A lot. Totally understandable considering the circumstances, and it allows them to take a walk down memory lane.
I thought Brighton dealt with what happened in Evie's past really well, and while it's uncomfortable to hear about, I felt that it was an integral part of the story. The story didn't revolve around what happened, and it didn't make Evie a weak character.
Exposed mixed the romance, action and suspense really well. I loved the characters. I loved the storyline. I freaking loved Riley. Evie was awesome. It was pretty much everything that I love in a book. Brighton Walsh is definitely an author to put on your TBRs, and if you haven't read any of her books I would tell you to definitely start with this series!
