I came across this book completely by chance and the synopsis immediately intrigued me. It's the story of a male fitness model, Adam who is the opposite of every stereotype you could conceive of someone in that profession. He's humble, he's modest, and looks like your typical boy next door. Oh, except with a bangin' body and dimples to die for. He's not one t

★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★

Geeky romances are slowly becoming my thing, I love a nerd and this one was right up my street.

Adam is a down to earth guy, he's a country boy and likes the simple things in life. When he is in desperate need for cash to help out his mom, he gets a job working as a fitness model with the model agency Teeg Models.

He is completely out of his element, he is not used to being objectified and that's exactly what happens when he steps into this whole new world of fake parties and be

This book wasn't really for me. Started off with some insta love which didn't bug me much. The hero was so corny it was kind of cringeworthy. The conflict at the end annoyed me. So overall not my type of book.

Newly Exposed is another hit for Meghan Quinn!!

Oh how I love Adam - you can't help but love this man. He's the quirky guy we all love with a hot body to boot! I don't think Meghan could have written a more perfect guy than Adam. He put himself out there and doesn't hide who he is - a nerdy guy from a small town.

Solo - love her name and love her! She knows who she is and owns it. She doesn't care what anyone thinks of her and does her own thing. I love this about her.

Put the phrases "corn-fed, Nebraska-raised," "Star Wars," and "nerdy" all in the same book blurb, and I couldn't hit the BUY NOW button fast enough. Normally, I avoid a new adult romance book, but the thought that not one, but both MCs were sci-fi movie geeks of the first order made my little heart go pitter-patter. Happily, Meghan Quinn liberally spreads the geekdom around, as both Solo (yes, named after Han Solo) and Adam not only quote Star Wars catchphrases, but also have adorably awkward mo ...more

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away…

It is a period of turmoil. A mother’s illness, medical bills striking from a hidden base, are threatening to overthrow peace in the galaxy. During the battle, our hero Adam is forced to join a modelling agency with his ultimate weapon, HIS BODY, an armoured abdomen and dimpled smile with enough power to destroy the wombs of an entire planet’s female population. Here, he meets Solo, an attraction is established.

“He was sweet, funny, and damn it, he liked Star Wars. He was almost my type, except for the fact that he was about to be standing in a scrap of underwear, rubbed down in oil in front of Zia and Meryl. He was a model, and that meant off limits.”

Newly Exposed by Meghan Quinn is a flirty, fun and geeky read that is a good way to pass a lazy day. Lighthearted and low angst following Solo, a PR specialist at a modeling agency and Adam the Nebraskan raised new model who has his eyes set on Solo.

Where does she come up with this stuff???
"I prefer to say... grooming the Wookie."
She was drop dead, tent pitching gorgeous.

Not even in my head can I think up shit this funny, but she does it seamlessly, yet again. This had me laughing beginning to end. Outbursts, belly laughs, gut busters, make my neighbors think 'what the hell is wrong with her?' laughs, and everything in between.
For a good time call Teeg Model Management and ask for Mr. James or Solo, or just got READ THIS already.

This was adorably hilarious! Adam and Solo were major nerds together. And from the moment they met, it was obvious they were meant for each other. This book was quirky and fun, with a bit of extra steam, because you cant have a book without a few steaming hot scenes right? Or is it just me?

Originally from Nebraska, he is in L.A. with his mom and aunt as his mom fights her battle against cancer, which has depleted the family’s funds completely.

I am Newly Exposed to this author, and after this delightfully funny read—one with a lot more heart than you might initially think—I will absolutely be coming back for more.

Adam James needs cash, and he needs it yesterday. When the opportunity arises for him to join Teeg Models and make money off his built-body and sweet, sexy face, he’s going to take it. He’s that desperate.

Joining the agency introduces him to the quirky, nerdy, beautiful Solo Cohan—a woman named for the bad-ass Millennium Fa

Oh my… This book was good. Really good.
It’s my first Meghan Quinn book and I swear, it won’t be the last.
I laughed and swooned so much reading it.

Solo, daughter of two lovers of Star Wars works for Teeg Models. She’s the queen of social network and is supervising and scheduling the life of those super-hot models… After a bad relationship, she gives up dating model.
But she didn’t count on Adam, with his baby face and love for Harrison Ford and Star Wars…

Wow I really enjoyed this one. It was super cute and surprisingly HOT! I don't know maybe it's me but I don't remember being 20 yrs. old and the guys were sexual dynamos in bed?!?! But good for Solo because Adam (Axel) was super sexy. Solo was quite the vixen in the bedroom. I'm telling you it's always the quiet ones. I do believe this author left this open to be a series because of all of the guys. I wonder what's going to happen to Nolly for instance? I really liked the concept of this. A mode ...more

Under the Covers Book Blog

When I first saw that this would be a book centered around a male model (and maybe cover models) I was both intrigued and weary. I guess being around the book world long enough and seeing these models in real life and talking to them, you get disappointed at the majority of them. I was dreading a meat head. But rest assured! That is not what this is about!!! In fact, Adam is the models' anti-model. He's down to earth, smart, funny, sexy, hot and geeky! He's resorted to modeling because he ju

I was so excited to be able to read an early copy of this new stand alone by Meghan Quinn. I first discovered her work with the Jett Girl books and I became an instant fan! I absolutely love her writing. Meghan has a unique way that she spins her stories that make you laugh and cry and just get all the feels…

This new one was a fantastic story of a guy that’s willing to do what it takes to get the money to take care of his dying mother’s hospital bills, even if that means selling his body… And no

I just finished reading Newly Exposed by Meghan Quinn. I LOVED IT! I know it's fiction but this somehow gave me a view of just how interesting the male fitness modeling industry is. WHAT A GREAT READ this book is! Witty, vibrant, and sexy! Adam and Solo had their ups and downs but they were a fun couple ...and they both were Star Wars fanatics , which made them the coolest hottest book couple ever.

Newly Exposed was my second book by Meghan Quinn, after picking up and loving The Virgin Romance Novelist earlier this year I was excited for what Ms Quinn did next, Newly Exposed is definitely a sexy, quirky romance, in saying that I was actually quite surprised by my reaction to it, not because I didn't expect to enjoy it, but because I was surprised by the different emotions and feelings this dragged out of me, I expected this funny, sexy story and I got so much more.

I hope you're ready to smile, laugh out loud, and need a cool drink because this book will do all of that to you and more. I think I fell a little in love with this book before I even started it. The cover really caught my eye with it's vivid colors and then the blurb took care of the rest. There was no hardship falling in love with Adam and Solo.

Adam and Solo had so much in common; It wasn't just the pull between them. I loved how both were geeky and enjoyed similar things like Star

Original Review @ Naomi’s Reading Palace

Newly Exposed is the fifth book I have read by Meghan Quinn; she has a way of pulling me into her sexy worlds and sweeps me away with her easy writing style. There’s a great mix of humour, charisma and passion woven throughout the story. It’s light on the angst and has the right amount of drama without going overboard.

Solo is great at her job, but a bad break up had her swear off models. She tried to stay away from Adam, but their attraction was too strong
