[Kame's Review]: "Overexposed"

Overexposed by Noelle Adams
Publisher: Noelle Adams (May 30th, 2014)
Genre: Contemporary Romance

For five years, Leah has been known as the fame whore who screwed Kevin Grayson, son of Hollywood royalty, as a step up the ladder to stardom and then maliciously exposed footage of their most intimate moments to the world. Only Leah knows Kevin is the guilty one, using the public sympathy to advance his career and breaking her heart in the process.

Leah isn’t na├»ve anymore. She’s given up on romance, and she’ll do whatever necessary to prove she hasn’t been defeated. So when she needs another shot of notoriety to ensure the success of her new restaurant, at the same time Kevin needs some PR help of his own, she agrees to a crazy plan.

She can fake a two-week romantic vacation with Kevin, pretending to rekindle their relationship for the eyes of the world. And she can resist Kevin’s breathtaking sexiness, even in such close quarters. And she absolutely won’t fall for any of his lies.

Kame's Review:

Five years ago Leah thought she had it all; she was with Kevin a sexy actor that she loved enjoyed her job and had a few auditions for small parts. Then it all came crashing down. She was vilified by the tabloids and it seems no one will forget. She is approached with a concept to give her the publicity she needs for the opening of her new restaurant and a bump in Kevin's PR would help him since his last movie was a bomb. It would be great for business but what about her heart?

Leah is the most developed character in this story; even though we have moments of Kevin's POV I felt I knew Leah better. She is so emotionally strong; I am not sure I could stay in a city where my customers knew my notorious past and weren't shy about bringing it up. I can understand her caution against trusting many people. I did enjoy her transformation and I think she is truly finally happy. Kevin was not as developed for me and I would have liked to see more of his transformation from the hard man he started as to the one more open to love. Kevin does have a tender side that I found endearing. There is one particular scene where Kevin brings back a happy moment from their past and relives it in the present that is just so wonderful and romantic.

The plot of this book darts from past to present. Sometimes I found that frustrating because it slowed the progression of the story for me. I understood it, as giving us short looks at the past when they were necessary. I did figure out the "mystery" on my own, to me how it was revealed to the characters was not very satisfying (sorry any more info and it will be a spoiler). The ending left me wondering if there is another book in the works - nothing that is a huge cliff hanger just a rather subdued HEA.

I have come to enjoy Noelle Adams books there is always some unique to me element that I have never read before; I will definitely be on the lookout for more.
