    *ARC received in exchange for honest review.*I’m completely speechless and blown away by how well put together this story is, how much thought and dedication went into writing something completely different to her usual work.I found the book to be more on the erotica side of romance with sex scenes left, right and center. Yet, Kelly Moran made the sex scenes seem beautiful yet erotic in nature.The characters are well developed and described in vivid detail, along with places and structures. I felt like I was in each scene with them, and found myself blushing continuously with a sense of imposing on their private moments.I loved the story line and the twists and had my gut and heart in complete knots. I felt truly nervous at some stages for Raven.I did feel Raven overreacted about the Island and found her reaction a tad melodramatic and bitchy. She blew it out of proportion and made me slightly cringe. Her moods in the books sometime gave me whiplash. But, saying this, I do understand, in a way and in some parts, about her behaviour but I found in places that it was a little too much.I do need to point out that at the end when it suddenly went forward in time, after she was in a dire situation, should of been a new chapter, perhaps an epilogue as such. I confused me on some level and I had to read the previous paragraph again to see if I had missed something.But, saying this, Kelly Moran delivers another captivating read. I sure hope everyone falls in love with Raven and Noah as I did.Aimed for audiences of 18+ with graphic sexual content not suitable for younger readers.

    Noah and Raven have been best friends for ten years, and for those ten years he's been keeping a secret- he wants her. Badly. So bad, he has been writing her anonymous notes for the past 6 years telling her as much. Now the time has finally come for Noah to tell Raven how he feels and when he does, they begin a hot, month-long affair. So hot, neither is sure they want it to end. Just as things are looking like they can't get any better, Noah must confess there is more he hasn't told Raven and neither of them may be safe from his past.See my full review here:*Property of Night Owl Reviews*

    I loved this story, it was an amazing read that had me hooked from the moment that I started reading. It moved along at an amazing pace that was not to slow nor to fast, has characters that you cannot help but fall in love with and a story that is entertaining and interesting that will grab you and not let you go. This must be read, no doubt about it.

    This book is absolutely amazing! I loved everything about it, the characters, the storyline, just everything! Noah is the most amazing man I have read about so far, he is a strong, compassionate, loyal Alpha-male, who learns to compromise for the one he loves. Raven is a very strong independent Alpha-female, who has a hard time letting men close. After 10yrs of friendship they agree to try to be basically friends with benifts for one month only, but the past comes back to haunt them. Can thwy stay friends? Will they become more? Read the book and find out!

    I'm a fan of Kelly's, but this is her first foray into erotic romance and I was curious to see how she would handle this leap. She has certainly turned up the heat!Just as in her previous books, Kelly has a knack for allowing her characters to build their relationships, rather than the "insta-love" so often seen lately. Noah and Raven had obstacles to overcome and they had to work hard at it, delving into their (sometimes difficult) pasts and pushing boundaries. These obstacles weren't small by any means and the backgrounds of these characters were certainly unique, making their relationship fairly complicated. I enjoyed the small cast of supporting characters as well, allowing me to see Raven and Noah in a slightly different light at times.As expected, Kelly created a story that pulled me right in with suspense, mystery, and plenty of drama. There were also several hot, steamy sex scenes to spice things right up! I'm hoping to see more books like this from her in the future!I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    What a book!! Noah and Raven are so hot together. They've been friends for years and during most of that period he had been sending her love letters. He finally gets the courage up to reveal himself in hopes that she can look past the friendship and move into a relationship with him. He has been hiding a dangerous secret from her their entire friendship to keep her safe. Will he jeopardize everything by revealing his true feelings or can their powerful friendship/steamy hot love affair survive what lies ahead.This is for mature adults. My hat off to Kelly on her new journey into this new style of writing. I loved the story and characters. I was hooked from the beginning until the end and I hope you'll give it a try.

    I received this ARC for an honest review... and I'm so glad I did! I have read a couple of Ms. Moran's books and I loved them. This one is no exception. It is one of her more steamier books, so be prepared!Raven and Noah have been friends for years so naturally there should be some type of chemistry between them... and boy was there! The love scenes were very well written. Some authors should take notice of how to write a STEAMY love scene (no names will be mentioned...)! Were there a lot of love/sex scenes? Of course, but they were tastefully done and highly sensual instead of vulgar. Ms. Moran painted a beautifully vivid picture of the Alaskan territory and developed each character quite well. You wonder why Raven and Noah are the way they are, but as the book goes on... you understand. The storyline of the two was brilliant. There was mutual respect and admiration... now throw in suspense and dire situations, you have yourself a great book!

    Amazing! Kelly sets the story so well, you love the characters, there are so many emotions she pulls from you. An incredible story! I loved Noah's character. There was so much more to him then you think. You can't help but feel for Raven. You want to cheer her on through her struggles. I loved falling more and more with them as the story went. Their chemistry was sizzling hot! I am still left breathless and speechless after finishing this.

    I have received an ARC of this book for an honest review.This story is a different style for Kelly Moran and she has amazed me with it so if you want a truly hot love story then check this book out - I loved it from start to finish.Noah and Raven have been friends for ten years, theirs is a non sexual/touching friendship and it has been driving Noah mad, as he has been secretly yearning after Raven for years, Raven however has felt safe and secure with him and looks forward to his company. Until one Friday night when everything changes.Noah has secrets and Raven has issues and this book deals with both of these with flair, it was great how you found out about both of these characters and their pasts and the bits in between. I would definitely recommend this book as 'A MUST READ'. I must say Kelly Moran's books have always held my attention so I was pleased to receive this to review, as I love her old writing style and this new more erotic book was no exception - CONGRATULATIONS Kelly on this fabulous new book.

    In this deep and highly entertaining romance, Miss Moran deftly takes two scarred souls on a fast paced adventure of sensual discovery and renewed hope. With its combination of the rich Alaska location, heart pounding suspense, and hot and sexy friends to lovers romance, Exposure kept me turning pages and earned a place on my reread shelf. Highly recommended.

    Another amazing book by Kelly! Not that I had any doubt, I love all of her books.She changed it up a bit and this story is more on the erotica side.Great development of characters. Due to content, definitely an 18+ book.I received an Arc for an honest review

    I received this book for an honest review.To be totally honest I am not a fan of erotica but I am a fan of Kelly Moran so I started reading this book with a "chip on my shoulder". Boy, did Kelly knock that chip right off my shoulder. I loved this book. All the sex scenes were very well written and the erotic scenes were so loving they won me over.Both main characters were relatable and flawed...just like everyone to some extent. Noah and Raven have been friends for ten years but have never touched. Noah has had danger stalking him from his past and he is afraid to open up to Raven to keep her safe. Raven has secrets about her sexuality and she doesn't like to be touched. This is a story for those of us who like friends to lovers stories.Well done Kelly Moran!!!

    Favorite Quotes:“It was a step up from the little girl who got picked on constantly by classmates or ignored throughout high school as if nothing more than dandelion fluff, caught on a breeze.”“All her life she stayed in the shadows, not wanting attention, uncomfortable with it. He was the first person to look, to actually see her as she was, and demand she do the same. No man had ever made her consider herself beautiful. It wasn’t even anything she contemplated. But she knew, without doubt, that she was to him.”“None of them look at me like that… And the sex is boring. I mean, forget Fifty Shades. I’d take twenty-five shades. In any color. Doesn’t have to be grey.”“He was starting to think she might never get to the place where he was, that place where he couldn’t live without her, where love hurt so good he couldn’t breathe.”“I look at you and my heart pounds, when for years, I don’t think it beat at all. You fill the cracks and crevices, take away the emptiness. When I think about the future, five years, twenty-five years down the road, you’re there. And when you’re not by my side, the loss is unimaginable.”My Review:Exposure is an intense and highly sensual genre hybrid that crosses contemporary, erotic, and romantic suspense. The story was intriguing, well written, lushly detailed, and richly descriptive. I could not put it down and essentially lost myself in this book all day. The main characters were both full of secrets, and troubled and damaged by their traumatic pasts - which just made them ever so much more fascinating. And in between the crackling suspense and intrigue – the steamy bits had me gasping like a guppy that has flung itself out of the fish bowl. Oh my! I may just have to add Kelly Moran to my list of favorites.

    The main character is Raven, she is involved in the Art world, she has a gallery with her friend and they exhibit some famous works, along with some unknown local artists. Raven has a good friend, a male called Noah Caldwell, they often spend time together, having meals, just generally hanging out. He is her rock!!Things at the gallery seem to be on a roll when an agent informs Raven that his client would like to exhibit his work there. His client is none other than a famous photographer, a reclusive man named Hoan. Raven is over the moon, it is a big boost for her Gallery and one she cannot afford to refuse.This story is way different from Ms. Moran's other books I have read, it is more gritty, darker, deeper, and the erotica is extremely high, but done in such a tasteful manner. I absolutely loved this read, I was hooked from the first page, sat up most of the night finishing it off and was furious when my kindle battery died near the end!! I totally loved her Ghost of a Promise book, but Exposure is off the Ric tor scale for terrific-ness in my opinion.I was given a copy of this in return for an honest review and believe me I am being honest I LOVED IT!!

    I must say that Kelly Moran has out done herself when she wrote Exposure. To watch Noah & Raven grow throughout the book was touching.Raven Crown is gorgeous with her cat-like brown eyes, which have hazel flecks and her dark hair that trails down to her shoulder blades who owns Elements, an art gallery. Her best friend since college is Noah Caldwell, she has come to count on him for a lot over the years.Michael Hawthorn came in representing Hoan Dwell a famous photographer who wanted to have an art exhibit at Elements Gallery and a private dinner with Raven at a place of her choosing. Hoan Dwell is a very mysterious man who isn't seen in public. His privacy means so much to him that he goes to extremes to keep it private. Noah Caldwell is sexy with his blue eyes, sandy brown hair, who owns Gallivanting Adventure, tourism recreation business. Raven and Noah had been best friends for ten years. What Raven doesn't know is six years ago every day on her birthday, He started sending her letters letting her know how he felt about her without signing them.What will Raven do when she finds out that her best friend is Hoan Dwell who has admired her for six years and has been the one sending her the letters. He wants to spend a month with her as lovers and as friends. He wants her to understand that he has no capacity to love her but he wants to be with her more then anything for this month. Then we can still be the best of friends after that month.Can these two best friends grow to love each other or will they let the past hold them back?Wow! This was such a beautiful written story. That touch my heart in so many ways. That at the end of the story I was left in tears at the connection I felt with Raven and Noah.I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for a honest review.

    "Somehow he'd unraveled her fears and pushed her past where she never thought she could go. It had never been like this before. Intense, connected. Freeing."Let me say, this book had a little bit of everything and had me engrossed from beginning to end. Super steamy scenes, friends to lovers, secrets, intrigue. I seriously could not put this book down. Noah and Raven are brimming with mystery and dark pasts that has you guessing for most of the book. This is a friends to benefits to lovers type of read that is definitely unlike anything I've read before. These two have been friends for ten years and Noah finally takes that step to change their relationship into something more, if only for a month's time. Raven, scared of losing their friendship but unwilling to let it go, agrees and so begins some seriously hot scenes that will have you wanting a cold shower frequently. They're erotic and yet, more than that, they’re emotional and touching. Noah starts to realize that one month with Raven will never be enough for him and will do anything to make her recognize that there can be more between them. However, they both hold secrets that they will have to work past if they can ever have a future together. Fantastic characters, great plot and I will not say anymore because this is one of those books you shouldn’t know anything about it except that it was a great read and I gave it five very large stars. A great first read of 2016. Well done, Kelly Moran. I look forward to checking out more of your books.*ARC received in exchange for honest review.*

    Exposure is a bit of a break out from the other Kelly Moran novels that I've read and I was told it would be a littler spicier than her other books and let me tell you she got my attention with Noah and Raven's Story.This book has action, adventure, shoot outs, drama, an amazing love story, a mystery to solve and did I mention it's an AMAZING STORY! Noah has had his emotional hands tied by circumstances beyond his control since before he met Raven in his freshman year of college. He is finally at a point where he can tell the woman he loves his true feelings and about the history that kept him from perusing her. Just when she gets over the shock of the revealall hell breaks loose and now they are both in danger.This book took me through the gambit of emotions and kept me on the edge of my seat. It is one of the books that will be put into my repeat-reads folder. Five stars just isn't enoughThis book was sent to me as a complimentary copy by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Such an amazing story this was.. So ver sensual, sexual and just a very exciting one today. I couldn't put it down not even once. I knew I just had to find out what was going to happen finally at the end.Noah Caldwell had had a pretty hard life. After losing his parents. He had spent the last ten years with his best friend Raven Crown. He also just wanted more from her. He had a past he now just wanted to forget. With them both they could have so much more.So exciting , so much desperation for them both in this book. I just loved this book so much I would recommend this to all of my friends.

    Exposure is unlike anything else I've read. Forget the trope of: boy meets girl, blah, blah. Right from the start Ms. Moran takes you on a rollercoaster ride of love, sensuality and suspense. One of the best books I've ever read! Raven and Noah are best friends who become a whole lot more, but each have scars and secrets to overcome. Once I started reading, I could not put it down until I was finished.

    Review: Exposure by Kelly Moran Date: January 18, 2016Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Contemporary RomanceReviewed by: Reading in Pajamas Rated: 5 Stars This was a hot sexy novel by an author new to me. Noah is the sexy nice-guy with secrets and Raven is the beautiful woman with a dark past. I didn’t warm up to her right away and in retrospect, that was part of the story and somehow these two just work well together. The author built the suspense subtly and perfectly from the start. And did I mention the book was hot? Between the danger and the romance, I was on the edge of my seat and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. The tense action blended well with the romance so that neither overshadowed the other and it just flowed perfectly. I loved it.*Review copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.~*~*~*~ $0.99 Kindle | B&N | iBooks | Kobo Goodreads Link ~*~*~*~

    ExposureKelly Moran4.5 starsRaven Crowne grew up with a mother that was a dreamer. Raven was a realist. Seeing her mother broken over love so many times she wondered why the woman continued to have hopes of a happily ever after. Raven poured her heart into getting her FA degree and bought a small gallery moving away from her past. Six years she worked to build the gallery with her friend and assistant Nicole and now their biggest break has come. Hoan Dwell wants to showcase his photographs at her gallery; the man was out of her league. In addition to Hoan wanting to show his work at her gallery another note has come in the small pink envelope – they always come with no return address and no signature always on her birthday. Heading out from one of the best days of her life she strips down to her PJs and waits for her best friend Noah Caldwell to come over. She and Noah had literally crashed into each other in college making a mad dash for their next class … the rest was history. Finally knowing she needed to she opened the note – whoever he was he always signed them the same – Ever Yours. Noah Caldwell has loved Raven since the day he met her. Ten years ago his life changed when he slammed into her heading to class. His past has kept him from telling her who he is and what he wants. But its time … Noah intends on having what he wants and what he wants is Raven. Wowza this was a really great read. By the second chapter you know some things that open up the doors to the rest of the story. Noah and Raven have hills to overcome and pasts that need dealt with … drama drama friends and its good! I loved the characters and I loved the fact that the element of surprised was all wrapped up for us or so we thought and then BOOM … another hit. The turmoil keeps you turning the pages; especially Noah’s, and trust me you will be rooting for these two. Trust becomes an issue and lines are crossed. Kelly is a new author for me and Im so glad I received the ARC of Exposure. Thank you! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets. Click this one up friends!
