Sarah Robinson continues her Exposed series with Bare. These tales do not need to be read in order for the reader to enjoy them. What links is the environment of the arts; film, dance, and media.

With this entry, the first thing that came to my mind was a fusion of O'Henry's "The Gift of the Magi" crossed with the film vehicle of "Step Up". The couple, Teagan and Reed, have a history of being each other's everything in college. They unabashedly lo

Bare is the second novel in the Nudes series, but is a complete standalone and can be read on its own. I personally enjoyed Nudes and think it is worth reading first, just to get to know one of the great Hollywood couples Sarah has brought to life before meeting the next. Main characters Reed and Teagan were once young sweethearts, but both were destined for fame and Reed couldn't let their future jeopardize the hope he had for his young bride. Years down the road, things just aren't wh

ARC received for review

This is a stand alone and you won't be lost if you didn't read the first book. I liked it, but it didn't hit as hard as the first book. This was a second chance romance, and way sweeter than the first one. Teagan is just as strong as her big sister. She overcomes the past in a big way, and gets Reed. Reed had a lot to make up for since he left Teagan at the altar, and he does it in spades. Lots of sexy times. Now I'm guessing there will be one more book with the baby siste

Bare is a standalone in Robinson's Nude series; no need to read the first in order to read this one.

This book didn't wow me like the first one did. If you saw my face right now, I have my lips sort of scrunched up on one side and I am thinking to myself "I was hoping for more." It missed the mark for me but wasn't terrible.

Bare is a second chance romance for Teagan and Reed. They were college sweethearts who were both aiming for fame, but in different directions. And instead of talki

This story didn't have the same impact on me that the first book NUDES did, but it was still a great read that I really enjoyed. I loved seeing Reed going after what he had always wanted but what I enjoyed even more was watching Teagan make Reed work for what he wanted, she was not going to give in so easily. Their second chance is not an easy one, they still have a lot to work through and trust is a big issue. The chemistry was really spot on which had me rooting for them even thought there wer ...more

I really enjoyed and loved this second chance love story. Teagan and Reed have a sorted history and when they are thrown back together while filming his new movie they are forced to see the truths that they may have been hiding from. I loved how independent and self-aware both characters are in their parts and faults of their twisted journey of heartbreak, misunderstandings, and love.

This specific video review will be included in the September 2018 wrap-up.

Title has nothing to do with book. Teagan gave in too easy. I like my book girls to let them suffer more when left at altar and not once visiting in the hospital. Douche main character. argh.

This book can be read as a standalone and not necessary to read book one, but you'll be missing out on one hell of a story if you don't. On to Bare.
Reed is another Hollywood bad boy who needs to clean up his image quickly, due to start shooting his next big film, his face plastered over all the tabloids and magazines in some very unflattering but truthful ways. He's having a meeting with his agent who tells him he needs to get himself together.

This is a level-headed story about second chances and forgiveness. There are no dramatic peaks nor angsty downs, yet the story is heartfelt and develops just great. At some times, I thought that Reed was a wimp and Teagan was a smartass, but the book levels them up and makes them just human and confused.

This book combines dancing and acting in a Hollywood movie, yummy! Hollywood actor Reed Scott has image problems. His wild past came up in the tabloids and bit his butt and his agent is giving hi

Bare is a story about second chances, fulfilling your dreams and overcoming unimaginable obstacles. Where Nudes was Aria Rose’s empowering journey of rise to fame in Hollywood -Bare is her sister, Teagan’s, inspirational journey of being the dancer she always dreamed of being... while getting closure and another chance with the lover of her life, Reed Scott.

With youth on their side and hearts in their eyes, their love was going to carry them to their future where there dreams would be fulfilled

What if you spent the last eight years of your life in misery and pain, hating the person who caused it but who also happened to be the love of your life? And what if it was all due to miscommunication and a misunderstanding? That is exactly what happened to Reed and Tegan. But it seems that they now have a second chance to make things right, but somethings are easier said than done and even though forgiving might be easy - forgetting is definitely not so.

I was given an early ARC for an honest review and you are going to get straightforward and honest. I was admittedly nervous in various parts of this story because if you have read Sarah Robinson before she is known for disturbing your mind, A LOT, but she didn't and it was fabulous for this story. Let me elaborate, the story of Teagan and Reed was like nothing I have ever read from her before or anyone else. Not only was it a second chance romance, but she made you question what would really hap ...more

Who doesn’t love second chance stories with an angsty plot and characters that are sweet and swoon worthy. This story takes you on a chase between Reed the Hollywood superstar and a super talented choreographer Teagan, who he has hurt immensely by leaving her at the altar so many years ago.

The story is written flawlessly, you will experience a tug of war of emotions, especially the art of letting go and forgiving someone that you want to trust but past experiences make you second guess yourself

This was my first Sarah Robinson book and now I definitely want to go back and read book 1. Bare can be read as a standalone so I don't feel like I was missing anything. I really enjoyed the story. I had a love/hate relationship with Teagan and Reed throughout the whole book which just made me enjoy it that much more. So much push and pull between them but it made for a entertaining, angsty story.

The past has a way of showing up when we least expect it. For Teagan and Reed, it brings love's worst mistakes and most haunting regrets with it. Bare is the tale of young love gone wrong and fate's determination to heal it. Robinson pens a haunting routine of heartache and immaturity. Emotions flow. From temptation to frustration, the twists are endless, but the end result is divine. ...more

Sarah Robinson has given her readers heartbreak with intensity I cant even begin to describe! Bare broke me and twisted my heart until there was nothing left. Teagan and Reed have a agonizing passionate relationship at times I didn't know if they were going up or falling down. "Teagan why girl why, must you do this to yourself."" that is what I was yelling at her throughout most the book, As for Reed I wanted to punch him in the face thru out the whole book.

Reed just has a way with animals, "the feeling is not mutual," Reed teased, but he was already giving Benson little scratches behind his ears. Benson purred and rubbed against them. "This is weird while I'm naked." If Reed doesn't like something the man goes on a tear, "...are effing stupid," a deep voice growled, suddenly entering the hospital room. "We're bringing in a specialist." I liked this book, I loved Reed. ...more

Another home run for Sarah such an amazing book! I love the chemistry between Teagon and Reed. Reed has alot to make up for especially sense he left Teagon at the alter.

Teagon stands up for herself and is just as brave and focused as her big sister! With alot of hot scenes.

Can't wait to see what Saesh has in store for us with Sheer. What an amazing series this is turning out to. I love how she makes ther female characters strong and independent!
I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars

What happens when you get a second chance to make it right. That is what happens when Reed Scott & Teagan Reynolds are brought together on a movie shoot.
Teagan is trying to get back to a life that was put on hold due to unforeseen serious circumstances what she never expects is seeing Reed Scott again. There is a lot of bitterness and heartache when it comes to him but when you are going to be spending a lot of time together again is your heart ready to give this a second chance that is the que

I enjoyed the push and pull between the main characters but even after I finished I still didn’t like Reed sorry I know some readers will be screaming at me. I liked Teagan but I was so hoping she would kick him to the curb or even just make him work a bit harder and longer to prove himself.

Even though this wasn’t my favourite of the series I’m still looking forward to the next one.

Reed Scott is the hottest actor in LA…
Being a Hollywood heartthrob has its perks, and I’ve damn sure enjoyed every one of them, both on and off the silver screen. The tabloids loved every second of exploiting my privacy, chronicling my mistakes in ink for the whole world to see. Accepting the lead role in a romantic dance film was guaranteed to make me a box office hit and help me rewrite my image, until the choreographer hired to train me turned o

Reed Scott broke Tegan Reynolds heart when he left her at the altar, but now eight years later, she finds she has to work with him by teaching him the choreography for the new dance movie he's starring in. Determined to resist Reed, Tegan does everything she can to keep things professional. However, Reed doesn't make things easy for her. Will she give him a second chance or will she walk away before she gets hurt again?

Bare is the first book I've read by Sarah Robinson, but definitely won't be the last. I absolutely adored her voice and her characters in Bare.

Reed Scott and Teagan Reynolds had some pretty amazing chemistry from the moment they saw each other again. I honestly have to give Teagan so much credit for not punching Reed in the face the first time she saw him again years after he literally left her at the alter on the day of their wedding. Teagan was so very professional as she started working with
