“A royal story set in background of conspiracies, manipulations and deceptions, Exposed is a whirlpool of intense emotions. The characters are beautifully broken. Their feelings are raw, gritty and incredibly terrifying. The story sucked me in and left its permanent mark on my heart.” ~PP’s Bookshelf
Louisa’s 4 Blush Review
There is one word to describe this book, and its ANGST…there is an unbelievable amount of back and forth going on. These two are just meant to be; however, Elias does not believe it. Mara knows that they are meant to be, and getting Elias on board is a task.
Elias – is Luka’s best friend and advisor, and Luka is Mara’s brother. (check out Luka’s story in Downfall, Book One of the Kingdoms of Sin series).
Elias is not royal and has not had the upbringing that Mara has had and has been told his entire life that he is not worthy of her love. Unfortunately – he believes it (well, sometimes). The back and forth between these two was epic. One moment they are flirting, and the next, they are yelling at each other. There is a sense of secrecy with Elias, which becomes a hindrance to their relationship.
The gamut of emotions felt while reading was extensive and topsy turvy!
It was never a question of love.
I knew I loved Elias Lancaster and that he loved me.
At least I always thought he did.
But for some reason, he always found an excuse not to be with me.
The pain I felt as my childhood love rejected me, again and again, after promising me the world when we were kids…
Well, it just wouldn’t go away.
No matter how hard I tried.
Desperate times called for desperate measures, and I never wanted to be considered desperate, but I knew if something didn’t change soon, I’d lose Elias for good and die of a broken heart.
No one told me how many times my heart could break in the process.

I lean in closer. “Be careful, your mask is slipping. You almost seem like the girl I grew up with right now.” I both love and hate seeing the real her. It’s driven me out of my mind that for years now, Mara has put on a mask around everyone but me. “Wouldn’t want anyone to get the wrong idea and see that you’re actually a caring person.” I lower my voice. “I have nothing to say to you.”
The hurt flashes across her eyes but is gone within a blink. In my mind, I see her when she was ten, when she thought I was ignoring her for a week because my mother wouldn’t let me go play with the princess. She locked me in my room when I snuck out, not letting me out for so long I thought I’d die in that bedroom. Those were the dark days with my mother, the days I still try to stuff down inside. I’d give anything if I could erase them from my memory. The hurt on Mara’s face back then when I was able to go outside again but didn’t tell her where I’d been or what had happened…it’s the same look I saw just now.
It’s these snapshots of us in my mind that make me turn back to her, make me think maybe there is a way…maybe we could have a chance.
