The long-awaited conclusion to the series that brought you NUDES ("passionate, emotional, and uplifting!" - #1 NY Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely) and BARE ("heartfelt and sexy!" – USA Today Bestselling Author Kate Meader), a young singer with stars in her eyes falls for a composer whose sordid background might strip them bare.
Grant Mercer is on the run from his secrets…
This was supposed to be an easy assignment—travel halfway across the globe and compose the musical score for an upcoming Hollywood movie by one of the biggest production companies in Los Angeles. One and done like dozens of times before. I wasn't supposed to have my entire life crumble around me the moment my plane took off. I wasn't supposed to meet her.
Intriguing and covered in ink, Simone enters my life like a storm, leaving only heartbreak in her wake. I should keep my distance. Hell, she should keep hers. Instead, we did the exact opposite.
Simone Reynolds is mending a broken heart…
Just months after finaling in one of television's most watched singing competitions, I should be riding the high of my life. I should be celebrating starring in a musical film predicted to rock the box office. It's hard to bask in my success when my family is suffering a loss we never saw coming. And then there's Grant—brooding and rugged and an absolute pain in my ass as he messes with my movie.
He's as broken as I am, but the perfect harmony is only a leap of faith away.
Sheer is the third and final book in the Exposed trilogy about the Reynolds family from Sarah Robinson. Each books focuses on one of the Reynolds sisters and with Sheer, we finally get the youngest sister Simone's story.
I really enjoyed Sheer and recommend it to readers who love fast-paced romances. Simone and Grant have a connection pretty much from the moment they meet. While it was not your typical meet-cute, I did laugh out loud at how they met. I liked them as a couple but did think Simone should have asked more about Grant's past and he should have been more forthcoming.
Grant and Simone had amazing chemistry pretty much from the start and only grew hotter the more time they were together. Seriously some smoking hot sex scenes from the very first, and it totally worked for this couple. I have to say I enjoyed them getting to know each other along the way but again felt like Simone shared way more than Grant every did and won't lie about it bothering me some as I read the story. I had a feeling it might come back to haunt him later and wasn't surprised when it did. While I completely agreed with Simone's anger and actions initially, I have to say she totally kicked butt when needed to help Grant out in a major way.
Sheer wrapped up the Reynolds family saga perfectly. I especially loved we got to see Simone interact with all of her family and even better we were given a gift of seeing this family in the future. Sarah Robinson was a new to me author before this series, and now she is on my auto-buy list of authors. Again, she writes really fast-paced, sexy, and emotional romances that end up being like crack once you start reading.
Rating: 4 Stars (B)

A Fantastic Finale
4.75 Stars for Sheer. This final book about the youngest Reynolds sister hit all the right notes for me. This series really has worked on all levels, from the first chapter of Nudes to the series epilogue. In Sheer we get Simone as she’s finding her own success thru music after years of putting her family first. When she meets the somewhat broody Grant Mercer she takes a chance at living for herself. The gorgeous Kiwi has met his match in the sassy Simone, and despite his past he can’t help but take a chance with her. Together they come alive, and man did their chemistry burn white hot!
I have really loved this series but I have to say that Simone and Grant have become my favorite couple of the series. And that says a lot because I really loved Aria and Ben.
This story was a little more emotional than Nudes and Bare. Simone’s family suffered a great loss and seeing her with her family really brought on quite a few emotions.
I love how Grant and Simone both help each other with their issues; they rescued each other. Sarah Robinson has a way of connecting you with these characters that they feel real and you become a part of their family. This series is absolutely a must read.
