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?
Oh, my gosh! I friggin' loved this book. Three words... Best. Friend's. Sister. Sometimes I wish I had an older brother just so I could lust after his friends. But alas, I'm an only child...
Georgia has been in love with Eric for as long as she can remember. The problem? Eric has wanted her for just as long, but he refuses to act upon his desires. Eric is afraid that Georgia will bolt. She just came home from being in the Army and she desperately needs adventure. She's constantly putting her life at risk and it disturbs Eric. Georgia has had enough and her next adventure is to finally seduce Eric. Slowly, they open their hearts to each other and reveal their darkest secrets. Will these secrets push them towards the happiness they desire or will it pull them apart forever?
Full Exposure is a whirlwind romance between two deeply wounded characters. I wanted to give both of them the biggest hugs. The things Georgia saw in war left deep wounds on her soul and she feels the need to live her life to the fullest. What she doesn't know is how her actions scare the crap out of everyone that loves her. She doesn't particularly see them as dangerous, just as something to do to push her limits. I loved that she was willing to take life by the balls. She's strong and will go after anything she wants. When she decides to act on her feelings towards Eric, sparks ignite immediately. Eric is afraid to love because everyone he's loved in his life all left him. He wants more with Georgia and he immediately falls in love with her. He wants it all with her and she's scared. I loved both Eric and Georgia. They were so different from each other, yet their fears were the same. They're both afraid of love and loss.
To say that this book was a whirlwind is an understatement. The book wastes no time and opens as Georgia finally decides to seduce Eric. I could not put the book down and finished it in a couple hours. Actually, I would have loved a couple more chapters in the book because Eric and Georgia really don't get a lot of time to be together. It all seemed very rushed. With that in mind, I loved Full Exposure. It was a fantastic debut novel from new Avon author Sara Jane Stone. She's got a new fan in me and I'm looking forward to finding out just what happened between Liam and Katie...
