5 BILLION (I Love Jasinda) STARS!!!!

Oh Jasinda… how you are with words. How you make me feel so many emotions. I grip your pages, I hold on to your books as if my life depends on it. I love and hate you. I love your stories and hate that I want more. I always want more, yet you satisfy me.

Exposed is a raw, gritty and additive tale about secrets, lies, passion and mystery. You will want to block off hours of your day to read this series because it packs a punch and it will devour you.

I swear I feel like this series is haunting me. I always say I refuse to continue on with a series I am not in love with or even in like with. My reading time is super valuable to me and there are just too many books out there to waste my time on something I don’t love/like. Yet here I am dying for the freaking sequel. Ugh, Jasinda Wilder, you are killing me.

I need a minute to gather my thoughts around this book. Undoubtedly, the first part of the book was fabulous and this one is no less. As I was reading this book, my mind was literally swirling badly. What the hell was going on in the book? As if it was playing with my mind. So many questions are yet to be answered and I'm waiting desperately for the third part to be out so that finally Caleb's facade can be worn off.

I can't even right now!!! Jasinda Wilder, once again, absolutely SLAYS me with her words! I loved every single second of this! Jasinda's mastery shines SO BRIGHT in her latest Madame X novel. Brilliant, captivating, and unbelievably jarring. The beginning will frustrate you. The middle will move you. The ending will SHOCK you. THIS my friends, was an experience that only Wilder can create.

This series is beyond good. I mean beyond. This hands down puts any other erotic series in another category. That category being great, but not the same level of amazing. I am beyond in love with Jasinda's ability to tell a story. Jasinda's talent shines throughout this book. Each word is written with a measured precision.

Jasinda Wilder has the ability to make me keep my eyes glued to the pages even when the situation is gets a little hard to swallow. The same is true for Exposed, the second book in the Madame X series. In this story, we find out a little more about X, Logan, and Caleb.

Wow! Just wow! I am pretty much speechless after finishing Exposed.

Exposed is the second in the Madame X series and must be read after the first book, Madame X. It continues to delve into the life of Madame X, uncovering secrets, truths, and lies. In a sense, she is exposed, hence the perfect title! But she is still very much under Caleb’s control.

Gah! So the mystery continues of who X really is.  I love this story but I dislike the fact that we still have to wait to find out more, but that's just me being impatient and nothing to do with the story.

In Madame X we were left a bit bereft with X leaving Logan.  However, it was understandable because Caleb is all she knows.  Sometimes its safer with the devil you know instead of the uncertainty of

Holy cow! A caterpillar to a butterfly. A mask to a face. Secrets surprises serendipity. Absolute love.

Exposed has it all and yet there are still more questions to be answered. Puzzle pieces to be put together. Currently laying all over the ground to be made into the perfect picture - who is Madam X.

At the end of the first book where Logan had given Madame X a piece of paper with her real name on it, we all held our breaths and then the book ended. This intrigued me, and so I decided to give Book #2 ago. I did enjoy this book, but it was a little slow in places as it took about five chapters until we discovered what Madame X's real name was. Once that was discovered, research was done to find out how exactly she landed where she was and what happens when the truth is revealed, and it doesn' ...more

He seems to always be there when she needs him and being a past criminal he's not afraid to get his hands dirty when coming up against Caleb. X is being torn in two!

It was a fantastic listen. Summer Roberts did an amazing job at bringing all of the characters to life. The way she read Madame X was so powerful. Especially in the last chapter.

The Madame X series is a bit too dark to be my cup of tea, but I have found myself needing to see it through to the end. Jasinda Wilder's writing is surprisingly powerful and poetic for this genre. "Exposed" teeters on the edge of smut with so many sex scenes that it would take me less than a day to finish the book if I skipped just that aspect. But, unlike many authors, the sex is not without purpose. Every scene appears to be written to propel the story forward.

Love this series - but when I get to the end each time - I think I die a little when I realize there is another book and I have to figure out how long I have to wait till the next one. Sometimes the wait is worth the pain ..... right? If you are looking for a different kind of read, check this one out.

My Thoughts:

Exposed is the second book in the mysterious and dark erotic Madame X Series. This a series unlike any other. "Madame X" had been powerless since the day that she awoke from a coma. She had no identity, memories of her past, those that were important to her, or even how she ended up in the hospital.

Caleb Indigo was at her bedside, and helped her recover. He stuck by her side through the long haul, as she had to relearn how to walk, care for her needs, and become whole once again. Unf

Sexy. Suspenseful. Positively addictive. The second book in the MADAME X series completely blows your mind with the level of intrigue, grit, and passion that radiates from the page.

First things first. This is a review of the second book in a continuing saga. Though there will be no spoilers here, if you have not read MADAME X, you might want read that and come back to me. Now onto the good stuff.

The story opens up pretty much where we left Madame X in the first book. She is with Caleb and still

Jasinda has done it again. With Madame X, we met our characters, and with Exposed, exactly that happens. X is on the hunt for answers and things are about to heat up.

This novel is all about answers and growth. Madame X wants to know her past, she wants to know it all. She si becoming her own person, while still under caleb's control, and that makes for an interesting situation. With how the first book ended I jumped right into this one.

But the way this book is written- you feel so much of what X is feeling and at some level you get here.
