My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
After years of running from a traumatic secret, young journalist Rafe Quintero is making his way in the world alone. Now that he’s landed a job at a Miami newspaper, he’s hungry for success. His goal? A blistering exposé on closeted PGA golfer Daniel Andrews. Rafe will stop at nothing to get the scoop—even if it means going undercover on Daniel’s private yacht.
Daniel is used to being in the spotlight, but his reputation for being cold and unfriendly hasn’t made him very popular. Still reeling from his mother’s death and his ex-boyfriend’s engagement, he hides out on his yacht to escape the press hounding his every step. His instant attraction to Rafe, his new crew member, is a problem he can’t ignore.
When Rafe and Daniel begin a steamy affair, Rafe knows it’s only a matter of time before Daniel discovers his betrayal. Now he has to choose: confess and hope Daniel can swallow his pride and forgive him, or put his ambition ahead of his heart and follow the story
So what did I think?
Rafe, the journalist out to make his name and Daniel, a closeted PGA golfer. Oh, what a great combination!
Rafe manages to secure himself a job on the yacht where Daniel is hiding out. He is determined to uncover Daniel’s deepest secrets and it looks like things might just be going his way as Daniel is instantly attracted. Unfortunately as he gets to know Daniel, Rafe starts to feel the same way and stops seeing him as the arrogant man he thought he was.
The characters were wonderful and although the plot was a little predictable, it was a great story. The title Exposed was a cute reference to both Rafe trying to get his expose on Daniel and Rafe himself being discovered.
The sex was frequent (I don’t think I’ve read a book with so much ass play!), hot and well written. However I most liked the emotional connection between the men. There were also some really humourous moments, blending with the emotion and drama.
A wonderful story. 4.5 stars!
