Since Meghan Quinn just released Stroked yesterday, I figured I would highlight my absolute favorite read by this author, Newly Exposed. It is certainly a book that I would pick up again.
This is the second book I ever read by Ms. Quinn, and it just sucked me in. First, the characters are fantastic. Adam has just landed the job as a cover model, but he has no idea what he is doing. He is only taking this job because of the money, and, to be honest, he isn’t very good at it. He receives a lot of help from Solo, the heroine of the story. Solo is also a phenomenal protagonist as well. She is unique and nerdy, and I fell in love with how the author characterizes her. Additionally, the secondary characters, particularly the other cover models in the house are fantastic, but also serve the role of comic relief and plot development. I also enjoyed the plot of the story. The conflict is real, the climax of the story is heart-shattering, and the falling action and resolution will fix all the pieces of your shattered heart.
If you have not picked up Newly Exposed by Meghan Quinn, you need to fix this immediately. Just as with all of her books, it is a sweet and dirty romantic comedy that will have you laughing out loud.
Adam James is a corn-fed, Nebraska raised, piece of man meat with a chiseled body and baby face. He is in desperate need of a paycheck and will do just about anything to get one, including stripping down to his skivvies and lathering up in baby oil. Solo Cohan is a quirky hipster with a strong work ethic,raised by two gay dads who are head over heels in love with Harrison Ford and Star Wars, hence the name, Solo. She works for Teeg Model Management, the same modeling agency that decides to book Adam as their next up and coming model. Sparks ignite between her and Adam the minute her baby oil soaked hand connects with his practically naked body. Even though Solo can’t stop thinking about Adam during photo shoots, she quickly and awkwardly, shows Adam her distaste for male models and her inability to engage romantically with them. Adam is captivated by her nerdy talk and peculiar tendencies and sets out to make it his mission to turn the Star Wars loving hipster to the dark side, where mingling with models is widely arousing.
About the Author:
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
