Praised by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely, as "Passionate, emotional and uplifting!", contemporary romance author Sarah Robinson brings readers a new standalone novel set in the glamorous hills of Hollywood and tackling challenging themes like the intersection of sexuality and female empowerment.

Ben Lawson is making a comeback...
After a few tabloid headlines, they think they know me. They don't know a damn thing. As CEO of a movie production company, I'll show them who I really am when we hit it big at the box office. My ex thought her smear tactics would ruin me, but I'm unbreakable. Rising from the debris, I swore I'd never let a woman distract me like that again. But then, my leading actress walked on the set and changed everything.

Seductive, sexy, and unapologetic, Aria Rose could break me. I wanted to help her, protect her...love her. Instead, I destroyed her.

Aria Rose is baring it all....
I knew better. I knew not to trust another Hollywood heartthrob with a reputation like his. He was my boss and became my ruin. I should have stayed far away from him. Ben Lawson promised me the world. He even promised me his heart.

But he destroyed everything--my heart, my career, us.

Book Review: 4.5 stars

Just like everybody else, I was waiting for this book to release for quite some time. And knowing already Robinson’s amazing writing mind, it only made me more excited to read it.

NUDES is the first novel in her new series EXPOSED whose field of interest is the “almighty” Hollywood. In the first part, Sarah introduces us to a very unique couple whose love is tested when a Hollywood-y exposure is out to destroy the one of them.

A perfect stranger. A moment of truth. An absolute mistake.

Ben & Aria. A producer and a rising actress. Two individuals whose paths cross when Ben becomes the head of the studio that is producing the movie Aria plays the lead female. The attraction between them is instant and impossible to miss. You just can’t take your eyes off them. They go from co-workers to friends to lovers – a bit too fats for my taste -, which works as the strong foundation their relationship will need and gives them the tools to deal with the “scandal” that lies ahead.

Although, this time, it’s not all about the love story. The layer that it hides beneath is the real gem of this book. And that layer has written the letters “Double Standard” on it. Robinson, with putting Aria through the chaos the publishing of her nude photos cause, hits bull’s eye and makes a loud statement about the still existence of it. With her own amazing way, she shows all the “checks” and “rules” a working woman – especially one who is a public figure – has to go through and follow so she can be acceptable and respected. She shows that even if we want to say that we live in the 21st century where the things keeps evoluating, we still hold onto an old thinking which instists to diminise the women.

Her presence was poerful… she was powerful. 

Once again, this magnificent top-fave-of-mine author not only creates a love story that sweeps you away and makes you fly, but also sculptures characters who touch every teeny tiny corner of your heart and blow you away with their realness, depth and substance. Both are passionate, determined and two of the best fighters I have ever seen. They take their life in their hands, run for it and they don’t stop until they pass first the finish line. And I have to admit that I developped a magor crush on Aria after the way she dealt with the chaos. She mastered it to perfection, leaving no questions about who is the boss of her life. Especially the letter – those who have read it know what I’m talking about – she wrote towards the end was the perfect icing this cake needed. And then came the cherry on top; the Epilogue! The overwhelming giddiness I felt after reading that can’t be described. I wouldn’t have asked for a better finale.

She was a shining star, and he’d happily spend the rest of his life helping her burn brighter and brighter. 

I’ve been a Robinson junkine for quite some time and undoubtedly she is one of the best authors I have ever read. One of the best of the best, actually. I couldn’t feel more elated and grateful that I discovered her because she deserves every praise she gets and then some more. Her stories, one after another, have made me a “slave” of the worlds she creates and every time I come across a new one, I go totally blind since I know very well the beauty she delivers every time. For those who haven’t read her yet, you should probably do ASAP. You will fall madly in love with everything every one of her stories is. BARE can’t get here soon enough and I can’t wait to see what else this woman has up her sleeve. And what a sleeve really!
