ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date May 5, 2015
Will Ethan Frost go too far for the woman he loves?
The moment Chloe Girard walked into my life, she exposed secrets and emotions I always thought were best kept buried.
She wants to move on, to ignore the past. But I can’t do that. Not when she still suffers. And not when the man who hurt her remains unscathed. So when I discover the perfect opportunity to make him pay for what he did to Chloe, I can’t walk away, no matter the consequences.
But there’s a fine line between justice and obsession. As I turn up old crimes and new lies, I know that I’m playing with fire—and risking the very foundations of our relationship.
My love for Chloe is absolute. I just hope it’s enough to save us both.
REVIEW: EXPOSED is the third installment in Tracy Wolff’s adult, contemporary Ethan Frost erotic romance series focusing on billionaire CEO Ethan Frost and legal intern Chloe Girard. EXPOSED should not be read as a stand alone as each of the previous books is interconnected and tells the continuing story of our leading couple.
Told from two first person points of view (Ethan and Chloe) EXPOSED begins immediately after the events of book two -ADDICTED -wherein our couple is trying to rebuild their relationship in the face of misunderstanding and lies. In the previous book Chloe came face to face with her past-a past that is directly connected to the man that she loves-and in this our couple struggled to keep their relationship from imploding. EXPOSED focuses on Ethan’s need for revenge and the ensuing fall out of the plans he put into motion. Millions of dollars, the Vegas mob, and the revelation of several more victims finds Ethan and Chloe facing a chasm of betrayal, retribution and the ultimate revenge against a family member with political aspirations and a psychopathic personality.
There are still some issues of insecurity and trust between Chloe and Ethan-Chloe wants to move forward while Ethan is determined to mete out revenge. The relationship between Chloe and Ethan, and thusly the storyline, is sexually graphic with a good portion of the story focusing on their love, lust and need for one another. The $ex scenes are numerous, emotional, erotic and intense but the sex talk becomes repetitive and redundant-there are only so many times the use of the word ‘baby’ should come into play-if at all- during $ex.
The secondary and supporting characters include Chloe’s amazing best friend Tori as well as Ethan’s best friend Sebastian Caine whom we met in the spin off series PLAY ME. Some of the timeline overlaps between EXPOSED and PLAY ME. Ethan’s mother and his half brother Brandon play an integral role in the final outcome of the story.
The world building continues to follow the building relationship of Chloe and Ethan, but no longer focuses on the professional side of the relationship wherein Ethan is Chloe’s boss and therefore their love is taboo. The focus now centers on Ethan’s promise to protect Chloe at all costs, even if it means placing himself in danger and in a position to lose everything that he owns. There is also the aspect of a permanent future between our leading couple.
EXPOSED is a fast paced and revealing storyline about two people facing improbable odds and an all consuming love for one another. There are moments of betrayal and revenge; romance and love; moving forward and letting go. EXPOSED is an intoxicating read with tragic scenarios, dysfunctional family values, and an encouraging look to the future. Tracy Wolff writes a passionate storyline that will captivate your imagination.

Genre: adult, contemporary, erotic, romance

Click HERE for Sandy’s review of RUINED
He’s the last man Chloe Girard should love . . . but the first she ever could.
Ethan Frost is a visionary, a genius, every woman’s deepest, darkest fantasy—even mine. And, somehow, I am his.
He stole into my life like a dream. Turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true—especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give and gave me everything of himself in return.
But dreams don’t last forever, and ours is no exception. Because my nightmares are darker, and my wounds deeper, than I could ever reveal. And as much as Ethan wants to protect me, the secrets we share will only tear us apart.

About the book: Release Date July 15, 2014
Click HERE for Sandy’s review of ADDICTED
As Chloe Girard discovers, there’s love . . . and then there’s addiction.
Ethan Frost is everything a woman could want in a man. He’s rich, gorgeous, powerful, one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.
But that’s not why I’m with him.
I love Ethan for all the things no one else gets to see: his innate kindness, his reckless spontaneity, his unwavering determination to use his brilliance for good. I love the way he looks at me, the way he touches me. The way he makes me forget the wreckage of my past and the twisted fear that still lives inside me.
But sometimes it terrifies me how much I crave him, how much I need him just to breathe. I always thought it would be my past that ruined us, but there’s a darkness in Ethan I never dreamed existed. Can we survive as his secrets surface—threatening to unravel us both?
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
