From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It was just a typical Monday.

Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.

After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed.

Or so I thought…

He kissed me for a long time after that. Slow, beautiful, romantic sensual kisses that a young girl dreamed about. Kisses you felt in your heart.
If I hadn’t been so enraptured by the moment, I might’ve worried that what I felt in my heart was a lot more than a kiss.

Vi Keeland’s latest, THE NAKED TRUTH, is an off the charts steamy second chance romance. Once I had the time to really sit down with this book and give it 100% of my focus, it real

She is an Attorney.

Layla met Gray while she was working for a prisoner appeals program class at men’s prison. She was their as a punishment for violating attorney-client privilege. He was in the prison as a convict for insider trading.
They had fun time in the prison library. They started having feelings but all of that comes to an end because Gray lied to her.

With this book, this author became my first Author to Avoid.

Her books very formulaic!
The hero usually having secret or surprise kid with OW and the heroine end up as a glorified nanny for his litter!

Very romantic! NOT!!!
overall rating 2.5 stars. (1 star for the last 40% of book)

Disappointing, hated the author threw in all the OW and secret child drama after all the heroine had to endure.
Just finished reading and I am actually sort of pissed off right now.
Was going to cool off and think before reviewing but sometimes your intial feelings and first impressions are most true.
Honestly I don't know why I kept reading after chapter 24 (58%) when the bomb is dropped.
It became a not very romantic, angsty, frustratin

Layla is a lawyer in New York. She's just been sent upstairs to present their services to a new client. She's mega excited and a bit scared. She has to prove herself to her bosses - there was a tiny little incident a couple of years ago. But she's ready now.

MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️ 2-Stars (and that's being generous, but I didn't dnf it)

I almost DNF'd this one. I stopped half way through and it sat on my shelf for about a week until I, for some insane reason, made myself read it. I thought perhaps it was me just being in a funk and not the novel (considering I loved 'Egomaniac') but NOOOOOO it was definitely the novel and yet I finished it.

I loved this book. Vi Keeland is one of my favorite authors (for good reason). I loved Gray and Layla's relationship. I loved that she made him work for it.

It was such a great read. Definitely a new favorite for me.

Once I began reading this book, it was so hard to put down, a definite sneak reading at work story for me!

Gray and Layla met several years ago under really unusual circumstances. They felt an instant connection and over several months it only grew more. In fact, they pretty much fell in love at first sight. Until Layla received news about him that completely shocked her and walked away from him.

Two years later, Layla has moved up the ranks in the company she is an attorney in and about to make a

I’m not going to spoil this book for you. Not a chance. Let me just tell you why you The Naked Truth by Vi Keeland, should be at the top of your reading list. The truth of the matter is that I read this book last week, and I still can’t get Gray and Layla out of my head and heart.  The Naked Truth is Kindle Crack, and I can't get enough of Gray Westbrook.  It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Vi Keeland.  Just when I thought couldn’t possibly love her writing style any more than I already d

“Sunset. That’s my new favorite color.”

Gray and Layla have a history and we find that out by a bit of flashbacks and retelling. Layla had gotten into a bit of trouble at her law firm and as punishment, she had to teach a class at a nearby minimum security prison. The exact prison where Gray was serving his sentence guessed it - a crime he didn't commit.

Lucky for them, there was light security because they were able to find time to make out every now and then. But that's not what

As we have all established, throughout the months of me being on Goodreads, I have slowly but gradually metamorphosed into a bitch. Or a grinch. Or a grinchy ass bitch.

Whichever you prefer.

And as per usual, I don't really read a book by it's synopsis, or summary, or whatever it is you call it. But rather I choose to read a book based on the reviews.

At first I was really, truly, extremely excited to read this book. Because hot man in the cover got me swooning in my knickers.

You all know by now that Vi Keeland is one of my absolute favorite romance authors of all time. So yes, I have high expectations for every book she releases and I am happy to say The Naked Truth reached all of them!

I really enjoyed how Vi developed the story in this book, she got really original with Grayson's life, with all the suprises and twists and unexpected moments, and also his story with Layla. As always, the couple had off-the-charts chemistry, the writing

I really enjoyed listening to The Naked Truth. I'm really drawn to the corporate big guys at the moment and Vi Keeland is providing me with some of the best. Again, the narrators do an amazing job and I'm sucked even further into the story with the way they tell it.

My only problem is that it does get to a stage of eye-rolling disbelief when another curveball is thrown at the main couple. You just get to a happy place and start feeling things are going well, and duh...duh.
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I’m not sure what I loved more: this story or Gray himself. I picked this up and proceeded to ignore everything else around me until I was finished, and I’m not even sorry. And now, even after finishing the book, I can’t leave him. I don’t think any hangover remedy is going to work here….

I have no idea why I went into this thinking I was going to dislike Gray. I should have known better. I love each and every one of Vi’s hero’s but this one seemed different. Maybe it was the cocky attitude from

It’s hard to put into words how much I loved The Naked Truth by Vi Keeland. This has become my favorite book written by her. I just really never wanted the book to end. I found it to be unique, different, unlike anything I have read before. I loved Gray and Layla, each one individually and as a couple. My goodness, their chemistry and connection was so electrifying.
Gray has gone through so much and the way he went for what he wanted just gave me goosebumps continuously when expressing how he fe

Ok, so to be perfectly honest, I was terrified to read this book… I already DNFed a different book co-written by Vi Keeland (one of her stories she writes with Penelope Ward) and I was afraid that her solo work might share a similar fate… but I decided to keep an open mind and give it a try… I adjusted my expectations and went into the audiobook… Imagine my absolute surprise when I really loved it :) no one is more shocked than me, because I decided to give this novel 4,5 stars :) some really cr ...more

Three years ago, Layla Hutton fell in love with a prisoner while serving her punishment. She’s a lawyer working at a men’s prison where she met Grayson Westbrook. He’s handsome, charming and no doubt, an intelligent guy who got in the wrong side of things. They broke things off and Layla was heartbroken. She vows no one will hurt her feelings again just like her father and Grayson.

Now Grayson Westbrook finished his sentence, he’s free to do anything he wants. Start a clean slate and rebuild his

“We’re not going to happen, Gray.”
A slow smile stretched across his handsome face. “Yes, we are. You can fight it all you want.” He leaned his face to mine.
Our noses were practically touching. My body tingled feeling his hot breath on my skin.
“In fact, I want you to fight it. Fight it tooth and nail. It will make it that much better for both of us when you finally give in.”

Gray and Layla's meeting and initial relationship were anything but typical. But it felt real until she felt lied to and betrayed, and she cut him off.

But now he is back and infiltrating her life and trying for a second chance. He's ready to explain the past and convince her of the possibility of a future, but he has his work cut out for him.

Layla is a work-a-holic lawyer who is trying hard to earn the approval of the partners at her firm. She's cynical, tightly wound, and has trust iss
Gray Westbrook and Layla Hutton met in prison. Yeah, not your usual place of romance LOL, but still, it was a prison for blue collars, corporate crimes and so on...

So, Gray was there cause he was set up, obviously and Layla had to do her punishment for breaking her client-lawyer confidence rule...and in this unconventional circumstences, they develop a true connection based on conversations, mostly...and Layla falls for Gray, until her heart is shattered by a lie or omitted truth...
