Book Review: Newly Exposed by Meghan Quinn

This is the second book I’ve read of Meghan Quinn’s.  Previously I read The Virgin Romance Novelist and I absolutely loved it.  It was hilarious and after reading the synopsis for Newly Exposed I believed her latest book would be too.  When I starting cracking up in the first chapter, I thought I’d be laughing throughout, although it wasn’t as funny as I thought it would be it was still funny.  Meghan Quinn definitely knows her comedy. J

Adam James needs a job NOW! His mom is on partial life support as she waits for a new heart and the bills have been stacking up.  If he doesn’t start making payments in the next two weeks, she’s going to have to be moved out of the hospital. Adam quickly learned that he would have to compromise a lot for his new job as a model at Teeg, but he would do anything for his mom.

Adam, newly named Axel for the modeling world was easy to fall for.  He was a charmer, had great manners, sweet, and would easily show off his geeky side.  He didn’t fall into what all the other models were doing just to fit in.  I liked that Adam had no problem being himself and even liked his corniness.

He was sweet, funny, and damn it, he liked Star Wars.

Solo Cohan is a hipster who doesn’t mind what other’s think of her and works at Teeg modeling agency and is their social media queen. She seems to almost everything there. She definitely has her own sense of style and is carefree. Her only rule is not to date models.

After meeting Adam, Solo knew that it wouldn’t take long before Adam would worm his way into her heart. She had seen what fame had done to the one model she had previously dated and it definitely didn’t help that she knew that once pictures of Adam started to work their way through social media and publications, every woman would want him. Even her own boss. Would Solo be able to get over her trust issues with men and give Adam a fighting chance?

I have to say that for most of the book I was worried about what would happen when Adam became famous and women would be all over him. Plus, Zia (Solo’s boss and photographer) had her sight set on Adam. Being so worried about the fall out of what I knew would inevitably happen made reading Solo and Adam’s story less pleasurable. They fell for each other quickly and I wish there was more story between them.  The banter in the story was well written and fun and I wanted more of it. Also, it seems that once they did have sex that was all they thought or did when together.  It’s probably because I just came off of a Kristen Ashley marathon and the sex scenes between the two are night and day.

My advice for reading Newly Exposed is don’t worry about the drama of Adam (Alex) becoming famous. Not that you will, but I do think my worry did impact my reading and trust me you will fall for Adam just as fast or faster than Solo did.  It’s oh so easy and he’s such a sweetheart.

The epilogue was sorely disappointing for me.  It didn’t really tell us how far in the future it was, but it didn’t seem to be very far.  I understand that I can be picky with my epilogues, but I want to know they are getting married or had the 2.5 kids. LOL. We get none of that and as a standalone I need a good final ending.  If my words scared you don’t be worried Adam and Solo do get their happily ever after.

** I was provided an arc for a fair and honest review. **
