Series: Laid Bare #1
Author: S.R. Grey
Release Date: April 5, 2015
A sexy novella where things are not always as they appear. Enter the Laid Bare world only if you dare.
There’s something about Lucien Chambers. Something beyond his amazing success, his good looks, and his uncanny ability to turn everything he touches to gold.
In the eyes of the world, Lucien is a sexy and savvy business man. But when a naïve photographer, Dahlia Vaughn, is hired to take pictures of the hot entrepreneur, she discovers Mr. Chambers may be much more than what he seems.
Volume 1 of the Laid Bare novellas
This short read is approximately 86 pages. An introduction to the next volume in the series, Unveiled: Laid Bare, out in June, is included in the back, as well as two excerpt chapters from other works of the author.
Wow! This book is nothing like what I expected. That being said, I couldn’t put it down. It was addictive and intriguing.
We meet Dahlia, a 26 year old photographer, who is super picky and quirky. Oh, and a virgin.
“I sure hoped that that something – or someone – happened soon. Mostly because being a virgin at the age of twenty-six was beginning to feel downright embarrassing.”
She is entranced by a man, Lucien, when she goes to photograph him. It doesn’t take her long to realize he isn’t an ordinary man.
“No, Miss Vaughn, I am not an ordinary man.”
Dahlia finds herself inexplicably drawn to him even though she knows he’s dark and dangerous. Even though her cousin and best friend, Veronica doesn’t want her around him.
“I felt as if I were in some twisted fairytale where he was my prince. A dark prince, yes, but a prince nonetheless.”
While I found this story to be quite odd, I also needed to know what was going to happen. I look forward to the next installment to find out what is happening between Dahlia and Lucien.
