Following the popular series debut—NUDES was praised as "passionate, emotional and uplifting" by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely—contemporary romance author Sarah Robinson weaves a new standalone story where a second chance at romance is found on a Hollywood film set and secrets always have a way of being…exposed.
Reed Scott is the hottest actor in LA…Being a Hollywood heartthrob has its perks, and I've damn sure enjoyed every one of them, both on and off the silver screen. The tabloids loved every second of exploiting my privacy, chronicling my mistakes in ink for the whole world to see. Accepting the lead role in a romantic dance film was guaranteed to make me a box office hit and help me rewrite my image, until the choreographer hired to train me turned out to be the only woman I'd ever loved and lost.
As beautiful and enticing as ever, Tegan walks in and reminds me of the worst mistake I've ever made. She should hate me, and now she has the power to destroy everything I am.
Tegan Reynolds is picking up the pieces…
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…never going to happen. I fell in love with Reed Scott once and it nearly killed me—literally. The last thing I want to do now is teach him how to dance, but I need this job and there's no way I'm letting him take yet another thing away from me.
Reed is in my world now, and this time we're dancing by my rules.

A Fanastic Read!
This book can be read as a standalone and not necessary to read book one, but you'll be missing out on one hell of a story if you don't. On to Bare.
Reed is another Hollywood bad boy who needs to clean up his image quickly, due to start shooting his next big film, his face plastered over all the tabloids and magazines in some very unflattering but truthful ways. He's having a meeting with his agent who tells him he needs to get himself together.
Which he promises to try. His latest film revolves around dancing and arriving on the set the director introduces him to his choreographer and instructor. Teagen, the woman he left at the altar 8 years ago. He left her at the altar to take a movie role. She's none to happy. There's some serious animosity here and I don't blame her. But she's decided to leave it alone. It's her job she need to focus on. He wants to talk about their past. She doesn't. What he doesn't know if that along with being left at the altar that day ended her career as a promising rising star. She manages to do her job throughout the story, we see her sister Aria again from Book One and her younger sister Simone.
There are some twists and turns in this one, once their cards were on the table things became a little better between them. Reed is still hot on Teagen's tail. Honestly, it was hard for me to see how she really felt about that. On the surface yes, below that not so much, he wasn't that much easier. You just have to keep reading.
The book is written flawlessly as usual by Sarah, her characters are multi-dimensional and have depth. The plot line was great and the book flowed really well. The emotions are there.
It's yet another must read from Sarah. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Second Chance at Forever
4.25 Stars for Sarah Robinson’s Bare. The follow up to Nudes is the story of Teagen Reynolds, younger sister to Aria, and Reed Scott. This was a second chance romance set with a Hollywood back drop. Reed left Teag at the altar 8yrs ago, and life has been challenging since they last saw each other. Now thrown together on a movie set, their chemistry is still there but figuring out if they can trust taking a new chance is not easy. I really liked the story, the characters, Teag and Reed’s families and even the obstacles. The only thing missing for me was the intensity of emotion that I felt when reading Nudes, which blew me away. Regardless of that, Bare is a solid and lovely story of taking chances and not giving up on you dreams or emotions.
