My name is Tegan Zander, and I like to… bare myself. Yes, you read that right. It’s not only me I want to show off though, but also the lucky person I’m with at the moment. No, I don’t go around whipping out my goods and pulling up skirts to flash all the Joe Blows around. Give me some credit, I’m a bit more discreet than that. No, I like to be watched while fucking. I lik ...more

descriptionI like this cover. A good representation of the hero. Fabulous composition. Unique title work. I would have probably used a lighter color for the title because it is really hard to see the series name over the darkness of his jacket. All in all though a pretty decent cover job.description

descriptionI'll be honest I wasn't sure about this one. That first chapter will hit you in the gut and isn't something I enjoy reading about, but I am glad I stuck it out because I ended up rather enjoying this one.

We are starting off by staying this is a first time author for us an we throughly enjoyed our first read by her.I have read a lot of erotica books but, not one that dealt with issues of sexual addictions so this plot was something new for us and a nice change to read something different.

I really enjoyed the characters that I read about.I thought they were fun,humorous,had amazing sexual chemistry and both had a great group of friends adding even more humor to the story that had a more serious st
Zero stars anything not sex, five stars for the sex. There is way too much wrong with this book that I just don't have the desire to get into. I couldn't have cared less about the characters and basically skimmed anything that wasn't sex. This is triggery AF even though none of the issues are mine.
Skim if you like exhibition, otherwise stay away.

What a fantastic story-it literally grabs you and keeps you hooked until the very end. The very chemistry between Willow and Tegan is unbelievable. Their sexual chemistry is off the chain HOT!!
Tegan is an exhibitionist and loves people to watch him having sex. He doesn't “do relationships” and is a considered to be a player when it comes to women. All that changes when he meets Willow. He cannot get her out of his thoughts, out of his mind, just cannot get HER out of his anything. He finds hims

Alex Grayson hooked me instantly when I stumbled upon Always Wanting... an amazing book that had me addicted cover to cover. Well on the heels of that, we have book two in the sexy Consumed series.

Bare Yourself was so good... and dare I say better than the first. Sexy. Intense. Consuming. Captivating. Addicting. Willow and Tegan blasted onto my kindle and stole a little piece of my heart along the way. I adored these two and found myself getting lost between the pages of their journey.

Patricia Maia (The Bookery Review)
This is the first book I read from Alex Grayson and I loved the writing style.

Bare Yourself is the second book in the Consumed series, but can be read as a standalone. I haven't read Always Wanting, but I know I will read it soon.

When I picked this book, the blurb picked my curiosity... and I wanted to see what would happen here.
Well, I loved it. I loved the plot, all the consistencies in it, the characters are great, the sex scenes are scorching hot and arousing and now all I think is reading a

Bare Yourself is a great read for anyone who likes their books with a bit of humor and a whole lot of sexy. Willow is a character that I think a lot of readers will be able to relate to and fully embrace the way that Tegan (yes, Tegan is a guy) pushed her sexually and helped her find herself and what she truly enjoyed. She is a feisty spitfire at the end of her rope looking to start over somewhere new. I enjoyed her wit and humor and felt her pain and desperation, turning quickly to ge

Bare Yourself is sexy and tempting. It may be taboo but it's my kind of wild fun. I think a lot of people have a slightly exhibitionist side. It's not always about the's about being seen. So skimpy bikinis...thongs...tiny dresses with it all hanging out...Tell me it's not for attention and power. Power over the direction a man's eyes go... Power of being desired.

It's heady and sexy. The power, the attention, the lust- they drive a need, a desire, fan the flames of lust. So Bare Yourself

Bare Yourself is the second book in the Consumed Series. This is my first novel by Alex Grayson and I was extremely impressed with the writing style and well executed storyline.
I absolutely loved how Tegan and Willow’s relationship evolved, there wasn’t a wishy-washy part where they denied their feeling, it was a true building of a relationship. This book immediately starts off with a sensitive subject but is carefully done while still portraying Tegan’s story. The instant chemistry between Teg

Where to start? Bare Yourself is a fabulous addition to the Consumes Series. The author has outdone herself with this one. If you read book 1 of the series, you know that it’s about a group of friends that found each other when they attended therapy for their individual types of sexual addictions. Deciding therapy wasn’t helping they formed their own personal type of therapy by being there for each other.

Bare Yourself is the ever so sexy Tegan’s story. OMG after what this man endured as a child

Alex Grayson has been one of my top favorite authors for about a year now. After reading the Jaded Series, and now the Consumed Series, I thought for sure there was no way to top Jaded Series. I thought knowing what this series was about wasn't going to be 'up my alley.' I thought it was something I wouldn't enjoy reading because I can't relate to much of it.
Alex is not 'just another romance author.' She extremely talented, gifted, and raw. She took Willow and Teagan's story, o

After reading ALWAYS WANTING (book 1), I couldn't wait to read Tegan's story.
HOLY HOTNESS! Alex Grayson's books keep getting better, and better. I was glued to my kindle from start to finish...SO GOOD!

Tegan is the life and soul of the party. He's a exhibitionist and loves people to watch him having sex. He doesn't do relationships and is a bit of a player. That is until he meets Willow, he just can't get her out of his mind. He is drawn to her like no other. She makes him want to give up all t

Wow, that was so hot! I loved Teagan and Willow! They had instant chemistry, and couldn't seem to get enough of each other, no matter who was watching. I was hooked with the first chapter. I had trouble putting my kindle down when I needed to. I am really enjoying this series and look forward to reading Nathan's and Ava's stories.

OUTSTANDING! The chemistry between Tegan and Willow is off the charts! Whether it's sexual exhibition or dodging family, they find a place in each other's world.

Tegan will always tell the truth, but will it put him at risk? Will Willow stay away because of his past? Will she become just another woman in a long line of them? Can Tegan accept all of Willow's baggage? Will he embrace her past so he can be part of her future?

Real-life problems with no clear solutions makes Bare Yourself authentic.

Alex did it again, this book is amazingly fantastic! I love the chemistry between Willow and Tegan. The way Willow fits into Tegan's group of friends,like she's always been there, is fantastic. This book wasn't as tense as other books I've read of Alex's but that didn't take away from the story. I can't wait for the next book. I know it's going to be fantastic!
A super hot contemporary romance with unexpected twists and humour...

This is my first book from Alex Grayson (however, it is book #2 in the Consumed series), and I have to be honest— I really enjoyed it. If you're into gentle and wholesome lovey dovey sex, Bare Yourself isn't really for you. This book also deals with some issues that can be a little hard hitting, I found the first chapter especially a little hard to stomach, but I'm glad I stuck with it because the story itself is actually great

With this being the first book that I have read by this author, I was pleasantly surprised by the depth I encountered in these two characters, Tegan Zander and Willow Bennett. I loved how this wasn't your typical erotic romance where two strangers meet, engage in a fling, and part ways to meet again and fall in love (Been there, done that, give me something MORE!). Alex Grayson made sure to put a heart and soul into two fictional characters, rip them out, and have these two take a journey togeth ...more

Tegan Zander makes Christian Grey look like Mr. Rogers. Tegan has a sexual fetish of being watched while having sex, sometimes his friend Nathan even joins in. His best friends are other people who have various sexual fetishes and sexual addictions. He's very direct about what he wants because he's not looking for a relationship just a good time.

Willow Bennett is a sweetheart, born and raised in Texas she grew up with her twin brother and best friend Minnie. Willow's parents passed years before

Oh my word, why have I never read this author before? And oh my goodness, what a steamy book this is. If I had any complaints it's that there wasn't enough naughty scenes (even though there are quite a few) mainly because a darn good plot got in the way ;)

There are warnings on this book that you do need to heed as it deals with quite a lot of difficult/taboo issues.

This book is definitely on the NSFW list, and boy will it get you hot under the collar, but neither is it one of those sleazy books

This is Tegan’s story. He’s the exhibitionist. He likes people to watch him having sex. He likes to see them take their pleasure watching him getting his.
Tegan meets Willow on the side of the road when her car has a flat tyre. She leaves him with a kiss and she stays in his mind.
Circumstances bring them to cross paths again and neither of them can deny the attraction. Tegan gets Willow to discover her own dirty side and once he discovers this there

Am I really blushing trying to write this review?

Bare Yourself is the 2nd book in the Consumed Series and I have not read book 1 so I am glad that it could be read as a standalone. This story is filled with characters with addictions that I found myself wanting to know more about.

In this story I am introduced to Tegan Zander, an exhibitionist who loves to have others watching while he has sexual relations with someone. Tegan does not come off pervy in a way that I had expected. His story of his

This was such a good book and definitely deals with some sensitive subjects.

I found Tegan a little intriguing and I was curious to see how it was all going to pan out with meeting the right girl. I liked that it wasn’t all that I thought it was going to be and sometimes it would be more public than other times. I enjoyed the “subtle” things that he did but I liked when he stared at the people watching. My heart completely broke for what he went through as a child which 100% contributed to where

Tegan Zander has a certain sexual vice, and that's he loves being watched. It gets him off knowing that someone else is getting off watching what he and his partner are doing. This is working for him fine, since he doesn't do relationships at all, and is revelling in his bachelor life. He never believed anyone would change this, but then he helped a woman on the side of the road. Willow Bennett is a hot little number that he got a taste of, then left, expecting to never see her again. Life is fu ...more

Bare Yourself is a standalone novel in the Consumed Series. The Series focuses on a group of friends who have some sort of sexual addiction. Bare Yourself features Tegan and Willow but also includes some small appearances by other friends we met in Book 1, Always Wanting.

Tegan’s sexual addiction is a need or strong desire to partake in sexual acts in public, or at least under the watchful eye of someone. These scenes made for some very interesting and hot, hot, hot reading. Perhaps many of us ha

Another fabulous read by Alex Grayson!

This book was HOT!  Tegan is a NAUGHTY boy! 

This series by Alex Grayson which is based on sexual addictions is amazing!  I wish that Ms. Grayson could write it faster!  I was hooked with Always Wanting but Bare Yourself is 10 times hotter and Tegan will satisfy all of your needs for a book boyfriend. 

I think my heart was racing from chapter two and outside of some adult responsibility, I did not put this book down.

If there was an award for realism then I think I would have to give it to this author, from the first chapter this was a story that you will have to get your head around, at times it was near the knuckle so to speak but I applaud the author for the fact that the characters got the story that they deserved. No quarter given to sensitivities of any sort and nor should there have been, this was a full-frontal look at some difficult subject matter but it was done with pitch perfect precision.
