ARC Review: Exposed – Kristen Callihan (VIP Series #4)

Rating: 4 out of 5.



There are some people in life who know exactly how to push your buttons. For me, it’s Rye Peterson. We can’t spend more than ten minutes together before we’re at each other’s throats, which makes working together that much harder. Rye is the bassist for Kill John, the biggest rock band in the world, and I am his publicist. It doesn’t help that the man is gorgeous, funny, talented, and…never takes anything seriously. Avoidance is key.

But everything changes when he overhears something he shouldn’t: a confession made in a moment of weakness. Now the man I’ve tried so hard to ignore is offering me the greatest temptation of all—him.


Brenna James is the one. The one I can’t have. The one I can’t get out of my mind. Believe me, I’ve tried; the woman loathes me. I managed well enough—until I heard her say she’s as lonely as I am. That she needed to be touched, held, satisfied. And I could no longer deny the truth: I wanted to be the one to give her what she craved.

I convinced her that it would just be sex, mutual satisfaction with nothing deeper. But the moment I have her, she becomes my world. I’ve never given her a good reason to trust me before. Now, I’ve got to show Brenna that we’re so much better together than we ever were apart.

Things are going to get messy. But getting messy with Brenna is what I do best.


Callihan is an incredible writer and her VIP series is an amazing collection of standalone stories based on world famous band, Kill John. I’ll admit that I’m not usually a fan of rockstar romances but Callihan is one of the few exceptions. Exposed is book four in the series and focuses on Kill John’s bassist, Rye, and publicist, Brenna.

Brenna was a delight. She is strong, fiercely independent, beautiful and knows what she wants, refusing to settle for less than she deserves. What she wants at this very minute is sex – and not just any sex, but great sex. Hot, sweaty, earth-shattering sex. And Rye is just the man to give it to her.

Like Brenna, Rye was also a fantastic character to get to know. Originally thought of as a playboy, Callihan really fleshes his character out and shows all of his hidden depths. Rye has so much going on beneath the surface and he’s at a point in his life where change needs to happen. The first being: finally admitting his feelings for Brenna.

Callihan’s writing is clear and concise, easy to read and an absolute joy to get hooked into. She knows how to craft a wonderfully detailed storyline with a cast of well-developed characters, each with their own vibrant personalities. The more of her books I read, the more firmly placed Callihan is as an auto-buy author for me. Exposed was such a great book and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to read a steamy romance about a sexy bassist and his one weakness, the beautiful and fierce publicist that represents his band.
