4 Overexposed Stars!!

This is another author that is climbing the ranks on my favorites list. A great go-to when you're in the mood for a great New Adult read!

I loved Leah and Kevin's story. It follows their love story over half a decade of ups, downs, love, and heartache. I adore a good second chance romance and this is a truly beautiful one. It pulled on my heart strings more than once.

I really would have loved an epilogue and a certain aspect of the ending, I thought, could have been a bit m
I freely admit that I love romances that take place in Hollywood or have a (fictional) famous actor in them. There’s just something about them that call to me. Maybe it’s all the crushes I had on my favorite actors as a kid. ;)

But whatever the reason, I do love them. So when I first saw this book, I knew I had to read it. I wasn’t the least disappointed. I loved every moment of it.

I found it intriguing, right off the bat. Four and a half years later, and Leah is still dealing with the fallout

4 - "golden" - stars!

I enjoyed this book. It was a quick and easy read that left me smiling.

Leah is the owner of The Retreat, a coffee shop/wine bar, that's known for its celebrity clientele. Four and a half years ago, Leah was thrown into the spotlight when a few sex tapes of her and her celebrity boyfriend, Kevin, were leaked to the media. Kevin was known for his role on a teen show and his famous father, but he wanted to make a name for himself and take on more serious roles.

This book starts five years back with barista/wannabe actress Leah on a dream holiday in the south of France with her friend, Cassie, Cassie’s boyfriend – Hollywood star Kevin Grayson, and Leah’s boyfriend Joey. It’s pretty obvious that Leah has feelings for Kevin and that her relationship with Joey is fizzling out. We come back to the present and find out something has gone badly wrong for Leah. She

I had a great time reading this book, it was well written and I loved the characters. Overall this was an amazing book. The characters had sparks flying off the pages. I read it in one day,I just couldn't put it down.

Leah and Kevin meet through friends. They became close friends overtime and that relationship turned into something much more than friendship. When something awful happens they don't communicate and things go bad, both blam

I gotta say, my history, of late, with books read via Netgalley has been like my acceptance rate with them, 50-50, that is. With that in mind, I then tend to dive in with a bit of hesitation, wondering if the next read will disappoint again (glass half-empty much?). I prefer it that way though because then, I end nicely surprised when I end up liking a book.

Which is what happened with this one, yay! It's a story about 2nd chances, which I enjoy. I admit I was worried the first few pages beca

I felt a little a bit of weird reading this. I felt it was a book between Noelle Adams towards more to Clare Kent actually.

But as always it was fun to read. and I think it would worked better for me, as preparing my self, if this was released under Claire Kent pen name!

Five years ago Leah thought she had it all; she was with Kevin a sexy actor that she loved enjoyed her job and had a few auditions for small parts. Then it all came crashing down. She was vilified by the tabloids and it seems no one will forget. She is approached with a concept to give her the publicity she needs for the opening of her new restaurant and a bump in Kevin's PR would help him since his last movie was a bomb. It would be great for business but what about her heart?

I liked this novel, it’s an uncomplicated, sexy, fun read. sometimes I want deep, dark drama, vampires and shifters, and sometimes I need something easy to read. That was this book yesterday.
Leah – she’s lovely, I liked her right from the first, shy and sweet and loyal to her friends, and she’s keen not to take advantage of Kevin’s offer to help her career. That’s was great to see, and it was pretty clear too that although Kevin w

First let me say, this was such a cute book. Not too heavy and not too dark. No kidnapping. No weird fetishes. It's simply a love story about Leah and Kevin Grayson, and I loved every moment of it.


Their story was told both in the past and present tense, and was it wrong that I cared more about the past than the present? =) No really, my favorite part about Overexposed was watching Leah and Kevin fall in love for the very first time in the South of France and over s'mores.

The writing was a big off-putting, like the story is being told by an observer (and not a very good one at that), thus making us second-hand observers also, which doesn’t make me feel very connected with the characters.
Though in the beginning I did find find myself wondering what happens next, it was more because I was intrigued by what Kevin’s story might’ve been.

The story is a bit of a cliché, something goes wrong in

This was my first book by Noelle Adams and I really enjoyed it.
The story is about Leah and Kevin. Kevin is an up and coming Hollywood star and meets Leah through mutual friends. The story is told present to past chapters. Leah and Kevin dated for a short while but spilt when sex video’s of them leaked, both blaming each other for the leaking, shattering the love and relationship they were building.

This is the first novel I have read by Noelle Adams and I must say that I really enjoyed it. The book is unique in the perspective and narrations. It goes from past to present and back again, and changes points of view between Leah and Kevin.

The book opens on vacation in the French Riviera with a foursome (2 couples) enjoying graduation and career changes. The reader can sense that the couples are “consciously uncoupling”,to steal a term from Ms. Paltrow, and are going to return home with change

Pas un mois sans la sortie d’une petite gourmandise de Noelle Adams . La voilà qui revient avec une jolie romance qui est ^peut-être moins solide que d’autres mais qui touche tout autant que les autres.

My Thoughts:

I don't think it's possible to pick up one of these books without falling for the story and the characters. It's like, seriously, every single time I fall. With these two, you can't help yourself.

Leah and Kevin both don't trust each other because they think that the other one was responsible for leaking a sex tape. Years later, they're pulling this crazy stunt--pretending to be together again to fool the world. Of cours
I picked this up sort of randomly, and just started reading with very little thought really....and I have to say, Overexposed was a bit disappointing, I'm not sure what it was, just a few things didn't make sense, like the bad guy, who I thought was sorta obvious...but the bad guys' reasoning was sorta ridiculous. Also why the particular bad guy worked with who he/ she worked with, was never explained.

And how the bad guy could do (view spoiler)is b

Note: I received a complimentary copy from the author for having won a giveaway and with no strings attached. This did not colour my views in any way.

Leah's strength of character really makes this book for me. And maybe that's just her going through the motions, but that she hasn't let the scandal stop herself from living (only from enjoying life's greater pleasures, ahem) is admirable. Kevin is clearly into her, and that's truly sexy. Rebuilding trust and their relationship takes hard work and

3, 5ish to a close 4 stars up to a new light.

A new light, this story was different. The characters and emotions were differently built up, it was the same for the style. The style was slightly different. It felt Noelle Adams/Claire Kent but it wasn't the usual one. I haven't read all her books. But lets say out of 10, I have 9 and out of 9 I have read 8.
I enjoyed all her books, liked them all I different levels, some more some less.

I think that this was the raunchiest book i've read by Noelle Adams.

It starts five years in the past where both Leah and Kevin have other partners but are getting closer as friends. It then alternates from present to past to see how and why they got together and how things blew up in their face.

Both have emotional scars from their past especially Leah who was completely broken when private images were splashed around of her and

We begin to see the beginning of what could be a beautiful relationship when BAM! we jump ahead 5 years to what is now a bitter connection. What once seemed to be a lovely relationship was subjected to a form of betrayal that is hard to look past.

Not a favorite of mine from Noelle Adams. This story lacks so much that could make it better than it is. While reading this, I had to remind myself that these things do not happen in real life.

There wasn't much to work with other than Leah and Kevin broke up over a misunderstanding that involved having their private lives exposed to the world. In short, that is basically the story. Everything

There was a bit of an ick factor in this one for me. When Kevin and Leah meet, Leah is dating Joey and Kevin is dating Cassie. Then Kevin and Leah are dating, and Joey and Cassie are dating. I think it's kind of gross. I would never even consider dating my BFF's ex-boyfriend.

I did like how Kevin and Leah get together (shown in the "past" chapters), they were friends for a long time first, before they started dating. Leah definitely got the crappy end of the deal when the sex tapes became public.
