There are some people in life who know exactly how to push your buttons. For me, it’s Rye Peterson. We can’t spend more than ten minutes together before we’re at each other’s throats, which makes working together that much harder. Rye is the bassist for Kill John, the biggest rock band in the world, and I am his publicist. It doesn’t help that the man is gorgeous, fu

Despite the slow start, Rye and Brenna's story brought me just...IMMENSE J O Y.

4.5 stars!

And just to clarify, the slow start does not refer to action taking a while to pick up, it's more that I expected to love this book immediately. I was looking forward to it for so long and was building all these expectations, and when it didn't sweep me off my feet on page 1, I felt oddly disappointed for a moment. But that did change as I kept reading!

Enemies to lovers, becoming obsessed with each other to a point of slowly yet instantly falling in love with each other...

A story that we have all been anticipating. Between two characters that are the total opposite and have represented what total obsession truly is. Brenna and Rye have become one of my favorite fierce characters that represent the ultimate lust towards each other. And Kirsten has not disappointed once again. This is the series of the summer that's for sure. But with fair w
“You once thought I was worth the risk—” My voice breaks then finds strength. “You’re worth it too. I don’t want to just be your friend, Rye. I want…I want to be yours. I want you to be mine. Wherever I land, whatever I’m doing. Because I…I adore you, Ryland Peterson.”

If I could give this book more than 5 stars, I WOULD IN A HEART BEAT!!!

This was so fucking worth the 3 years wait, it exceeded all my expectations! Brenna and Rye have been one of my favorite potential couples ever sinc

Okay. CONFESSION: After 2+ years of anxiously waiting - who am I kidding - book stalking Exposed since it popped up on KC’s GR page, I recently started to wonder if I was setting myself up for a letdown. 3 years after Fall, it’s more than possible for a writer’s voice to evolve or just lose the pocket of that headspace they had writing the previous books in a series. It’s also not often 3 books in a series, imho none are any wor

I’m always SO happy to read a Kristen Callihan book, and Exposed did not disappoint! I adore this rock star romance series and its cast of characters, so it was a delight to be back with them. It’s got a frenemies-to-lovers romance between a bassist and the band’s PR manager. Their romance has been years in the making and when they finally fall into bed for a frenemies-with-benefits fling, they can’t get enough. I enjoyed Brenna and Rye so much!

“She’s the one that got away.”

I cant help but smile over how whipped this guy is. Rye Peterson has been in love with Brenna since page one and no one can convince me otherwise.

I picked this book up because I absolutely adore Managed. It’s probably my all time favorite book and one of my first romances that I ever truly fell in love with. Soooo I picked this up for the cameos. Hehe. I really wanted more glimpses of my Gabriel.

But this was sooo good. Gooey and cheesy and cliche and jus

Most likely not. Rye called her a slut or whore or something like that in Book 1 just because she was flirting with another guy when he himself fucked every women he met. Disgusting double standards. He wants her to be all celibate and not even look at another guy when he made out with lots of women (and then took them to his room) in front of her, most likely knowing she liked him.

He totally lost it when she when just appeared to be flirty with another guy yet he constantly makes her endure wat

”He kisses me as though I’m dessert, hungry lips and seeking tongue. Right there on the sidewalk in the pouring rain. And I forget about everything else. Here is where I need to be. I’m no longer empty or listless. I’m alive. My senses fire with hot sparks that crackle along my skin.”

Managed by Kristen is probably one of my favourite ever grumpy-sunshine books and when I heard we were getting Rye and Brenna’s story after 3 years of waiting, I was all over the moon. Though, I did

I feel like I've been waiting forever for this book. But if there's one thing that Kristen Callihan does well, is she makes every minute, month, and year of the agonizing wait for our next VIP fix super worth it when she releases the next one. And when I got my grabby little hands on this book, no sleep was had because I had to devour it in one sitting.

Oh, Brenna. I feel you. This book was pretty darn great!
i want to preface this review and point out that what bothered tf out of me with the book was a me thing. i think a lot of other people could either overlook it and not give it a second thought, or not even notice it really in the first place. i am not one of those people lol.

It’s been a couple of years since the previous book in the V.I.P series Fall was released but after finishing Exposed I can honestly say it was so worth the wait. Rye and Brenna’s story was so damn amazing. These two have been busting each other’s chops since book 1 and throughout the series and finally here they explode. Talk about combustion! I knew Rye and Brenna had chemistry but this right here was insane. I felt it deep in my bones. Goosebumps and the lovely tingles. Also the connection th ...more

Brenna + Rye.

Of course we remember those two from the previous books - even though it's been 84 years since the last book. 🤣


Brenna and Rye are two of the last single people in that Kill John world of friends and family. But of course they could never be together because they've always hated each other. They fight all the time! Right?!? 🤣

I didn’t expect this... 😔
I was so hoping to love it, despite that my last two reads by this author were not spectacular. It’s the VIP series after all. I loved the first three parts.

Exposed was a huge struggle for me. I forced myself to read chapter after chapter, and finally I gave up since it couldn’t keep my interest or enthusiasm.
There was nothing to thrill me or sweep me my feet.
Brenna might have been a strong and independent figure but she didn’t awe me. Rye was a character that managed

Brenna wants great sex. That’s it. Nothing more.

Yes, five. Saying the following with my whole chest: this is the best book in the series. Brenna and Rye shit on every other couple periodt.

Is this book never coming out? :(
So, I'm still attempting to turn my incoherent screams of joy into a review for this long anticipated romance, but really I'm going to have to re-read and unpack my emotions. BUT that said, it was exactly what I hoped for as I've been watching Rye and Brenna circle each other throughout this series, and wow what a payoff.

I also loved how the author had Rye address a few lingering concerns I had about some of the things Rye has said to Brenna RE: her sex life.

I re-read the entire VIP series before I started Exposed and maybe that was a mistake. The first three books were exceptional with great plots and a build up to epic romances (especially Managed which remains my favorite), and Exposed fell a bit short of those earlier books. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Exposed quite a lot; the hero was a good guy hero, the type I adore,and I liked the heroine quite a bit, but I honestly felt like I was reading a diary, a day in the life of…because the

Just like everyone else, I feel like I’ve waited years for this book to finally be released.
I had to do a reread of the other books to freshen my memory and get reacquainted with all the characters again.

I admit I’m not one for the whole “friends to lovers” trope or the ”friends with benefits” trope either but this is Brenna and Rye. Plus, would we really consider them “friends”? 
Anyway, I just HAD to read about them.

I adore Brenna.

Wow, what an amazing read! An intense, emotional and passionate frenemies-to-lovers story that absolutely captured my heart. I was glued to my kindle from start to finish and struggled to put this book down. It’s a beautiful story with all the feels, and I loved it!

This is the fourth book of the VIP series, and is the story of Kill John bassist, Rye, and PR Manager, Brenna. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for Rye and Brenna’s story! They were hinted at way back

Exposed is the enemies to lovers and secret romance book to read.

 It had a solid plot, great writing, intense chemistry, steamy love scenes and a couple that you root for finally get together.
The two main characters, Brenna and Rye, are why I fell in liked with this story. Both them development and they breathed life into each and every page.
Rye's band members, are featured a lot in this book, their found family dynamic is always amazing to read about.
