“I wouldn’t want you to suffer,” he said with calm deliberation .“Who would ever want that for someone they care about? We can’t choose our fates, though. We can only choose how we respond to them. I would choose to be with you. I want to celebrate your existence,
Joy. Every day that’s available to me, I want it. I’ll cherish it.”

Artist Joy Hightower is a lucky artist whose familial ties get her on the set of the Hollywood movie, Maritime. Her uncle is the makeup department head and when he is unable to meet the demands of the fast-paced schedule, he asks Joy to help him body paint some of the actors on set. Joy enjoys her job, painting toned and sculpted bodies with the gentle strokes of her brush. But it seems that one of the actors (who she later finds out of is the “A” list movie star, Evere...more

Joy Hightower is an artist/teacher working for her uncle (who owns a Hollywood special effects company). She's painting some body art/tattoo on what she thinks is a Hollywood extra (he's in costume and full makeup)--turns out to be a major movie star/hunk Everett Hughes! (But Joy doesn't recognize him...) Both Joy and Everett get extremely turned on while she's painting him--and Joy does something completely out of character for her. The fact that she may be dying with the same disease her mothe...more

Blog Rating: B+

This book starts out with one of the hottest scenes you could want in a first chapter. Joy, an artist, is helping her Uncle out with his special effects company that’s working on a Hollywood movie blockbuster. Joy is asked to paint a body tattoo on one of the actors, an actor she assumes is an extra comes in and she’s instantly attracted. With all the man’s makeup on she can’t tell who he is, only that she’s drawn to him and gives him one s...more

REVIEW: I have been a devoted fan of award-winning author Beth Kery from the moment I first read WICKED BURN . I literally felt the heat sting my fingers as I turned the pages. Kery writes scorchers with heart. Kery is constantly giving readers one sensual charged romance with characters that explode off the pages time and again. Kery’s latest A One Night of Passion Novel EXPOSED TO YOU explodes from the starting gate claiming a readers need to escape into the erotic world that only a true words...more

Actor Everett Hughes’ latest blockbuster Maritime required hours of intricate make-up application, more specifically a body tattoo painted on his skin by an artist. The design of the body art is credited to the genius of Seth Hightower creator and owner of Hightower Special Effects. During the movie’s production, Seth called on his talented niece, Joy, to paint the creative, complex tattoo on an actor she thought was an extra. Joy Hightower received shocking, frightening news that day regarding...more

Like a lot of people I found this one when I read the excerpt. I believe I caught it when Dear Author wrote a post, and it was hot damn hot. I'm a sucker (hm) for when a writer can honestly write a sexy sex scene. There's a kinetic, steal your breath sort of energy to it like any intense moment, and when it's done well I'm bound to break a kindle.

But this was the book that showed me that sex isn't enough for me anymore.

Not that it ever really was, but I'm getting to this weird point where I'm...more

My rating is : 3.5 to 4 stars


I have to start by saying I truly enjoyed this book. I was grabbed immediately in the first chapter. I don't think I have read a book with this much sex in it. Everett and Joy literally have sex throughout the whole book, starting in chapter 1 and going through to the epilogue. I have to say by the end I was a little tired of all the sex. While reading this i couldn't get rid of the feeling that this book reminded me a little of Love Unscripted. I say that because it...more

Joy doesn't know what came over her when it came to the irresistible pull she felt towards a model she was painting a body tattoo on. What transpires is an erotic moment with the potential for something more, but a misinterpreted meeting ends up with both frustrated and feeling empty, they are left with only the memory of the intimate moment they shared.

Months later Hollywood star Everett Hughes walks into a coffee shop and sees Joy. He wants answers and his dominant personalty intends to get th...more

The "One Night of Passion" Series is one of the most well written, enjoyable, erotic series out there. If you haven't read it yet, and you enjoy contemporary erotic romance, get yourself in gear and start this series. Beth Kery is an excellent author.

This particular story starts out with a blush-worthy erotic scene so hot, you don't want to be reading it in the grocery store line or while waiting in the pickup line at your child's school. Give it your full attention. It is HOT.

Joy Hightower is...more

I’ve been a big fan of Beth Kery for years. She writes some awesome steamy and erotic romance. Her soon to be release, Exposed to You, part of her One Night of Passion series is an excellent romance with a too good to be true hero, and a heroine, who against all odds overcomes a deadly illness and lives life on her terms. But she doesn’t expect the handsome, Hollywood rising star to break down her defenses and sneak his way into her heart. Exposed to You is one of the best books I’ve read to dat...more

hard to rate for me. but i think im going to go with a 3.5

This book centers around a painter in her late twenties named joy. She lends a hand to her uncle by body-painting an extra on the set of a new movie. Little did she know, this "extra" was actually the star of the movie and overall A-list celebrity , everett. A personal hardship and year and half-later, Joy meets everett again when he's in town for the movie premiere. However, everett has never forgotten the sad beauty who turned his world...more

This book is part of a series called One Night of Passion.
They are stand alone books but you get more of couples you have read about.
I read the first chapter at the end of Captured by you and was hooked.
I was a bit disappointed in Joy's description or should I say lack of, I couldn't get a mental picture of her however Everett she was throughly described down to his skin. Besides my sad vision of Joy it really is a hot steamy juicy book. Joy is so guarded and I could totally see where she was...more

Exposed to Youis so wildly erotic and intriguing I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to see how great erotica is written. The rest of the book, however, does not live up to the promise of the first twenty-one pages.

The book opens with Joy Hightower, a rather private young woman who teaches art to gifted high school students, walking on to the movie set of an upcoming blockbuster fantasy film,Maritime. She's come at the call of her uncle...more

I'm new to Beth Kery's books - Exposed to You is only the second I've read - but thankfully she has a tremendous backlist for me to read through.

I absolutely loved Exposed to You. The characters are very well established, so they feel like actual people - something that's critical for me to enjoy erotic romance. The heroine has battled terrible health issues on her own (her choice, as she didn't want her loved ones to suffer with her), and her fear of her illness returning leads her to act in w...more

Had to to think about how I felt about this book. I liked it, but I still feel like a lot was missing from the narrative that, in the end, made it unsatisfactory as a whole. Not to get into the whole argument about the definition of "romance" and "erotica" but in my personal opinion this book falls firmly into the later category. I never felt like I got a grip on the relationship itself because most of their milestone moments came during sex. I'm really not even sure that their HEA will work si...more

Just wasted my time…

If you think, that “Exposed to You” is centered on Everett being big movie star, then you are wrong. He could have been a plumber for all that matters and the plot would still be the same.
The plot is build on Joy’s problems (view spoiler).

This is how the book went:
1st chapter – Joy and Everett first meeting
2nd chapter – Joy and Everett second meeting


Last chapter – mild drama, Joy and Everett solved their problem, happy end.

Holy Hell, the BJ scene in the first chapter was HOTTT!!!

For a moment, she just stared.

It was like holding life in her hand....

...She abandoned herself to the voluptuous, eternal moment, escaping into it like a fugitive from a harsh meaningless world.


and if it were on this chapter alone, I'd rate it 4.5 stars.

I don't know, but the book felt to me as a lot of filler with a couple gratuitous sex events thrown in-- it was just ok. I found it predictable and unbelievable, even in a fantasy world th...more

Good book with great steamy, sensual love scenes. However, not sure it was par with some of the other offerings by Ms. Kery. Just really did like or dislike the H/h . Just kind of muhhh whatever.

Oh and just a side note get out your thesaurus because your going to need it. IMO this book was a bit heavy on 25¢ words.
Judy
This was a full length novel but using characters from Ms. Kery's "One Night of Passion" stories. The story is about an artist working for her uncle doing make up special effects on actors in a Hollywood movie. Her background is a tragic one having taken care of her mother through terminal cancer after her father couldn't handle it and deserted the family. And, now, she has also been diagnosed with cancer and is just imagining all the horrors she's going to face.

In walks a world famous actor (sh...more

Joy Hightower is helping her uncle and fellow artist out on the set of his latest movie when she gets the chance to work with THE Everett Hughes (think Brad Pitt, but younger). Little does she know that when she is assigned to do his body art, her swiftly changing world will tilt on its axis. From the get go, these two have off the charts sexual tension. When Joy starts to work on Everett's lower body, she leans forward and finishes him off in a way that is completely out of character for her. S...more

...he slipped more ice between her lips...

"Suck. It's the only thing that's going to keep me from fucking your beautiful face and coming in that hot little mouth, so you better chill it off."

How have I not read anything from this author before?! I absolutely LOVED this book. Exposed To You is a contemporary romance, laced with some kink and BDSM. Please note, there is graphic language and sex scenes th...more

Read the incredibly hot "Exposed to You excerpt". In the excerpt, Joy, reeling from a cancer diagnosis, is asked to apply special effects body makeup on Everett, an actor. The chemistry and tension that builds between them as she works on his tattoo leads to an intense sexual encounter that's contrary to Joy's typically cautious nature.

After reading this combustible opening (the excerpt is taken from the first chapter of the book) I was really curious to see how the author could build Joy and Ev...more

As much as I enjoyed the first book in Beth Kery’s One Night of Passion series, she’s outdone herself with this latest addition. This is a wonderfully emotional story of life and the eagerness to live it when the threat of death is very real. Then just when our heroine finds the happiness she never thought she’d have, that threat becomes even more real and scary and heartbreaking.


One of the best erotic scenes in the book is early on when Joy meets our hero, Everett. They’re on a movie set and Jo...more
