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.
Evie Masterson is nothing like Genevieve Meyer. She doesn’t attend fancy society parties, she doesn’t drink wine and she’s not from the perfect background. But now they are one and the same.
Five years ago, Evie ran for her life and has been hiding in plain sight in the upscale suburbs of Minneapolis. All it takes is one random photo on the society page to unravel her delicate house of cards – and it also brings her straight back to the boy she once loved more than life itself.
She agreed to disappear to protect them both but now that he’s the one thing standing between her and those who want her dead – but to him she died a long time ago.
“Apparently my ex-girlfriend, who I thought was dead, is alive and well, living in a fucking mansion in Minneapolis.”
Riley thought that he lost Evie forever on that long night five years ago and his heart has never healed. When he learns from his brother that she’s alive and in serious trouble, he knows he’s going to try to save her. But can he save himself from falling in love all over again and will they lose more than just their hearts this time?
“Anything can happen, except when you’re with me. No one is getting to you when I’m here. No one is getting through me. I’d have to be dead first.”
Exposed is yet another highly entertaining quick read from Brighton Walsh! Her story is thick with delicious tension and her characters are just the right amounts of imperfection and strength.
Emotions run as high as the heat between Riley and Evie and the ending is equally as satisfying. This is what New Adult is all about…
Exclusive Guest Post - Brighton Walsh
What was the hardest book of yours to write? Why and how did you manage to get through it?
Some books come easily. Caged in Winter, for example, was probably the easiest thing I’ve ever written. I wrote it in a month, straight through. I didn’t get hung up on anything, and the words were always just there.
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.
