Length: 293 pages
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…
Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.
My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.
And that was the good part of my day.
Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.
A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.
A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.
A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.
**** My Review ****
Vi Keeland is one of my favorite authors, that never disappoints me. Ever since I began to discover the magic of her books, I have appreciated more and more her wonderful ability to express a modern fairy tale that simply abounds with pure emotion and everyday love.
Although the number of love romances that appear every day is literally huge, The Naked Truth masterfully captures the tender emotion of two souls, two hearts joined in one, intertwining the past and the present, disappointment and seduction, rejection and attraction in such a unique way, which simply does not allow you to leave a book even until you read the last words.
As I read and meet Layla Hutton, I became more and more aware that her refusal to indulge in love is like Don Quixote’s fight against the windmills. A strong, successful young lady who burrows into her own responsibilities to forget the feeling that caresses and burns her at the same time, that feeling of belonging and desire, the desire to be in his arms. Although the past did not go well as it should, the mark of that unique feeling is there sometimes. Simply, the chances of turning her back on that obvious chemistry between them are absolutely minimal. And Gray Westbrook is absolutely, irresistibly perfect. The way he fights for the one he wants, the way he approaches her step by step, the way he talks to her … we are simply his allies from the very beginning.
– “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.”
The uniqueness of this character simply elevates him high on the list of the best heroes of romances. A man who knows how to want openly and sincerely, who fights with his whole being for what he wants.
“We’re not over. We’re just getting started. Because what we had was real, and real doesn’t go away, no matter how much you want it to. ”
Who, even in the moments when he gives up the great love, does it for her good.
The extraordinary mix of emotions, hot scenes and interesting dialogues simply make this book a perfect choice for an amazing, yet relaxing read. ‘The Naked Truth’ is such a sweet, sexy and addictive romance story. VI Keeland has just hit my 1 click list for all her upcoming books and made it to my favorite authors list.
