I freaking loved this novella. Lucian is so hot. Some sort of otherworldly man....we just don't have the details yet. So sexy. Can't wait to find out more about him....I can't imagine what he is.

Poor Dahlia Vaughn, the photog that's captured by Lucian's spell and taken on the sexual adventure of her life.

I need more....Now.

Let me just say this first… I NEED MORE LIKE RIGHT NOW!!! Normally I do not read anything paranormal but after reading the blurb I had to take a chance. I am SO happy I did. Words cannot describe the questions rolling through my head as I was reading this.

First off WHO and or WHAT is Lucien? I mean of course his name alone makes me think one thing but then again the blurb says things are not what they appear. Could I be wrong in what I am thinking? Is this sexy business everything he appears to

Hell, where to start with Lucien & Dahlia. I don't know what Lucien is, but, damn, point me in the direction of finding one of his kind. This is something totally new from S.R Grey. I loved Adam Ward, Farren Shaw & swoon just thinking about Chase Gartner but the sex in this is just.., amazing! I love the intrigue of this novella & it has definitely left me wanting.. No, needing, more. Loved this story from page 1 to the end. Cannot wait for more from this steaming hot couple!

(From my blog : http://mybookshelfisyours.over-blog.c... )

I really loved this novella and here is what you need to know :

I found the blurb really attracting (oh just like Lucien Chambers : not a coincidence !) and was obviously dying to read this novella. Just like the three I read before (see my reviews), I enjoyed very much my read. It was a fast reading, compelling and... kind of unsatisfying but in the best way ! Sometimes, a book needs to leave you such a great impression so you want more

Soooooo hot! It doesn't have to be a long book to completely suck me in and this one certainly did. Lucian is rich, sexy, mysterious, and as Dahlia is soon to find out he is much more than he passes himself off to be.

As long time lover of paranormal books I was absolutely blown away by S.R Grey's first dabble in paranormal romance! It is definitely a bit dark and Lucian is one baaaad boy (in the best sort of way) leaving me very much in need of a cold shower by the time I was done reading. And a

As always S. R. Grey has another hit on her hands. I loved this so so much, I hated to see it end. I can't wait for the next one. The author has a way of pulling you into her books and making you fall in love with her characters. Lucien is delightfully wonderful and Sexy as sin on a stick.

I found this to have a shallow plot and the main hero and heroine had no character depth as well. It was robotic and I could barley finish it with NO desire to continue the series.

Wow! This book is nothing like what I expected. That being said, I couldn’t put it down. It was addictive and intriguing.
We meet Dahlia, a 26 year old photographer, who is super picky and quirky. Oh, and a virgin.

“I sure hoped that that something – or someone – happened soon. Mostly because being a virgin at the age of twenty-six was beginning to feel downright embarrassing.”

She is entranced by a man, Lucien, when she goes to photograph him. It doesn’t take her long to realize he isn’t an ordi

What are you doing to me S. R. Grey?!?!?!?!
I have been staying away from Paranormal because I got so burned out on it...but this had just enough where it wasn't completely overpowering but it left me not just needing to read more but wanting to read more.
With that being said...Lucian...he is a mystery, and we are never answered the one question we long to know, "What is he?". Now I have my theories but I'm keeping those to myself for now...but I do have thoughts as to what he may be or not be.

Very intriguing... I don't know how I felt reading this story but very confused... I hope there's more.
I'm not one to read Paranormal, I usually don't like it, but this story isn't a normal Paranormal story... it doesn't looks like it at all until you get to understand that something isn't right.
This is a very hot, short story, extremely erotic, very descriptive... I almost hated Lucian, almost!
Cant wait to read more!!

I really enjoyed this novella. It was an interesting story that combined mystery and romance and some steamy sex. It follows Dahlia, a photographer and Lucien, the man that she is hired to photograph. She knows from the moment she meets him he is no ordinary man. She just can't quite figure out what he is. She knows that she needs him in her life, but will he let her in?

I hope there will be more to come with this couple. It is a quick read and I definitely recommend this novella.

First off, many thanks to S.R. Grey and Give Me Books, who provided a free copy of Exposed in exchange for a honest review.


I freaking loved this novella. It is so much more than it seems on the surface. I went into it not knowing that there was a paranormal element to it. I had only seen the teaser picture, and it was pretty enough, and interesting enough, to warrant a request. So, props to whoever created the teaser pic, that was great work.

This steamy novella will have you spellbound from the very first page.

It's a different read from SR Grey's usual work as she ventures into the paranormal genre. She has created a character i Lucien wh o you will like to loathe, be suspicious of and find very creepy all at once. He is a complete mystery but I found myself wanting to know more about him.

This book is hard to 'shelve' on the one hard it's a rich billionaire meets cool, calm and innocent girl and the other hand it's rich billionaire with spidey senses meets naive, pliable and accomadating innocent girl.

Either way, I enjoyed this read, I now take heed of the 'Nothing is as it seems' lol. I was a little shocked at first, yeah yeah, I'd gone in blind, I love giving myself no idea of what's to come. And after the initial shock I was ok, cool, this is a little wicked spin on a billiona

Talk about hooked! I am the fish at the end of the line hanging in there. This novella is the "appetizer" that will entice you into trying to find out more about Lucien.

There have been book boyfriends in the past who are full of mystery, HOT-ness, and allure. Lucien tops them all. When Dahlia first meets him in person her reaction is immediate. There is something beyond reason, that drives her toward him. Being 26 years old and a virgin, she has resisted men all her life while waiting of "the on
