No touching allowed …
After serving her country, Georgia Trulane craves adventure—and sex. She’s set her sights on her brother’s best friend—now her boss, since she took a temporary job as his nephew’s live-in nanny. Only problem? Eric refuses to touch her. That doesn’t stop Georgia from seducing him. But an earth-shattering encounter leaves her fully exposed, body and soul.
Eric has a long list of reasons to steer clear of the woman he has wanted for as long as he can remember. For one, he refuses to be her next thrill ride. When he claims her, it will be for good. But the attraction is undeniable, and the more they fight it, the stronger it pulls. But will it be enough to conquer their obstacles?
I started reading this book on June 21st and I finished the book the same day. I couldn’t put it down for more than a few minutes. I tried, I really did but it kept calling my name.
FULL EXPOSURE is about Georgia Trulane, who loves to live life and search for the next big thrill. She doesn’t want emotions, not after going back home from a war where she saw a lot of loved ones die. She wants things to be simple, not complicated. Problem is, Georgia is working as a nanny to Nate, Eric’s nephew.
Eric has been Georgia’s brother’s best friend since First grade and has always had an eye on Georgia. He can’t help but feel need and desire when he looks at her. He wants her and she wants him. There is a rule, though: No touching allowed. He won’t touch her, he won’t do anything with her and that frustrates Georgia to no end and me too! He has his reasons and one of them is Georgia’s brother, Liam, who is Eric’s best friend and coworker.
I have to say this book became one of my favorite New Adult Romance read. As almost all NAR books, it does have sexy and very steamy scenes in the book, but it’s not all about that. What I enjoyed about this book is that it’s not only sex. It has a beautiful and amazing story that will leave readers captivated and wanting more. I want more! I knew Georgia had her own demos to fight with but I never imagined it ran that deep inside her and that made me feel for her and identify with her, in a way.
One of my favorite scenes in the book is about Eric’s nephew, Nate. Nate is always scared there are bears in his room. One night he wakes up, saying he needs to make a sign. At first I was confused. I thought he had a dream and wanted to draw what he saw, but that was so not the case. He made an X on a paper and taped it to Georgia’s door. When Eric asks him why is he doing that, Nate replies with “She needed help fighting the bears. Just like you help me when I’m scared.” That did it for me and I got tears in my eyes.
I never found this book boring at all. It kept me wanting to read and forget everything. I got so submerged into the story and that, my lovely readers, is how you can tell a book is good.
A chapter before the epilogue, I was already thinking that I needed a second book and fast. During the epilogue, I kept thinking that for the second book I wanted Liam and Katie to be the primary characters and guess what?! They are! So stay tuned to hear more about the sequel in this amazing series.
