Book Review: First Exposure by Elisabeth Naughton

First Exposure
(Aegis Series, bk # 0.5)
By Elisabeth Naughton

A film that could make her career…

America’s sweetheart, Avery Scott, is up for the biggest role of her life, one with Oscar potential. When her girl-next-door fame prevents Avery from doing the in-depth research for the sensual role herself, her assistant insists on traveling to an exclusive couples resort to handle the job. But when her friend goes missing, Avery’s focus shifts from landing the role of a lifetime to finding out what happened on the sultry Caribbean island.

A weekend that will change her life…

Avery contacts Aegis Securities and hires one of their elite operatives to accompany her to the resort. She just doesn't expect to get former undercover FBI agent Cade Blackwell—the man who ripped out her teenage heart twelve years before. Avery’s a good actress. With a little work and a convincing disguise, she’s confident she can fool the staff at the resort. The question is…can she fool Cade? Because one weekend at the sexiest resort in the world with the only man she’s ever loved will expose her to more than just a kinky new lifestyle. It’ll expose her to numerous wicked firsts that will test every ounce of her self-control. And if she’s not careful, she could lose her heart—and her life—in the process.

Viviana's Review:
A novella in the Aegis Series, "First Exposure" kicks off the series in a good way. Elisabeth Naughton definitely knows how to write an Alpha male!

Ava and Cade see each other for the first time in 12 years and truly a lifetime. Both had thought they had moved on, however the chemistry is still there and soon find out that moving on is the least they had done. 

Ava is on a mission to find her friend and she knows she needs Cade to ensure they both make it out alive. Diving head first into a world she knows nothing about she thinks she has everything under control. Far from it! Cade still has an affect on her, one that could compromise them both.

Cade walked away from Ava in order to ensure she had the opportunity to a real good life. While he has kept tabs on her during the 12 years, he did move on with his life. Well, he thought he had.

Old passions ignite and  truths come out, in a dangerous environment that can lead to tragedy. 

I really liked "First Exposure" and I'm looking forward to the new Aegis Series. I do wish that Ava would have put more of a fight when it came down to finding out Cade's secret. Yes, there's a secret and you'll have to read the book to find out what it is. While I understand that the circumstances of their current situation could have put somethings in perspective, I think that any woman would have reacted a bit more with emotion. Then again, it's a story and a well written one! Again, this is a great start to a new series that I'm looking forward to reading!! 

Rating; 3.5 Stars - I Really, Really Liked It
