by Elle Brooks
When one door closes, another one opens and in Robyn's case a new start is definitely what she needs. Preferably one that pays well after being lumbered with a bad debt when her ex bailed and left her to clean up his mess.
Reveal; an high end Burlesque establishment in New York City. It has a respectable reputation and the money is good; a means to an end and a great opportunity to express her love of dance -- nipple pasties be damned.
A hot coffee debacle in Starbucks paves the way to a new friendship in a hotshot lawyer named, Cole. Sexy, refined, successful, Cole is a great ear and good company, and it is quickly apparent he would like more.
Callum may be the boss of one of the most revered Burlesque clubs in the city, but he's a renowned player. After having his heart broken by his ex girlfriend, Lisa when she cheated on him, he has vowed to never let another in.
When Robyn is attacked by a loan shark demanding the 10k debt her ex rang up she turns to her friend Lucy for advice. Having a contact within the establishment, Robyn successfully lands a new job at Reveal... just the break she was looking for, but as always, nothing is ever as straightforward as it seems.
Reveal is an addictive, sexy and unmissable read that focuses on one woman's plight to do the right thing even when a wrong has been made. Robyn is a sweet character and because of this she has two men vying for her attention, and even though her actions are genuinely honourable, she finds herself in a couple of predicaments that make you turn every page with relish.
The anticipation of where this story would lead was killing me, and that can only be attributed to the wonderful writing style and talent that is Elle Brooks. She is fast becoming one of my favourite authors and I swore after her Promises series, I will read anything this woman writes and Reveal did not disappoint. This is more edgy than her previous work and even though it hints at a love triangle, not all is as it seems. All I can say to that is this Princess is #TeamCallum ALL THE WAY!
Add this one to your TBR and READ IT! You won't be disappointed.

I used to believe in destiny.
I was six years old when I first took to the stage, and I’ve danced every day since. It’s the biggest part of who I am. The fuel that drives me forward.
The stars were perfectly aligned, and my fairy tale had slowly begun to play out like a beautifully scripted passage from a romance novel. I was all set to live my happily ever after…
Until I wasn’t.
If dancing was my heart, Daniel was the blood that kept it beating. I was content with supporting him as he worked towards his music dreams, but then he disappeared, leaving me scared, alone and suffocating under the crushing weight of his debts.
It’s said that opportunity often comes disguised as misfortune.
When one door closes, another one opens. But I wasn’t prepared for it to belong to Reveal, one of New York City’s most exclusive Burlesque Clubs.
It feels as though the universe is conspiring against me until fate thrusts two very different men into the equation. And what they have in common, no one could have predicted.
Destiny may have delivered them both, but who stays is my choice.

A new standalone romance, unrelated to the authors Promises series.
Robyn finds herself backed into a corner with no where to go. Her long-term boyfriend has up'd and left her which in itself is devastating enough, but to top it off he has also left her to face huge debts and a scary loan shark determined to get his money. As a professional dancer in NYC, jobs are seriously hard to come by, she is struggling to make ends meet, never mind having extra to pay off the debts that Daniel left behind. When a friend tells her a local strip club is looking for dancers she knows it's a chance to earn some much needed cash. However she soon finds out that Reveal isn't just your average seedy strip joint, It's high end Burlesque, the classy art of stiptease. Reveal may just be the answer to her problems, or it could well be the start of even more?
Not ready to get involved romantically again, Robyn meets Cole. He is the perfect specimen in all ways and he would love to start something. You then have Callum, owner of Reveal, her boss and someone that becomes a protector and friend. If Robyn thought life couldn't get more complicated, she is seriously mistaken.
OMG, I seriously loved this book. It is no secret that I love this authors storytelling. Her Promises series was amazing and one that I recommended over and over again. The question for me before reading this book was would her storytelling transfer from what was very much a YA/NA series to pure NA and a book focusing on older characters and subject matters. Happily I can assure everyone that it does. Elle's voice and her fast paced style remains, but this book is as far removed from the Promises series as she could get. I am so pleased that she had the courage to take this book in a different direction. It proves that she is a wicked author and one that has the talent to grab my imagination with every single book she puts out there.
I loved the characters she created. All of the main protagonists are well thought out and because she has told the story from various POV's you have a real insight into the different layers of the story and them as individuals. There is mystery, suspense and angst a plenty. The overriding feeling for me though was that the story just continued to build and build. I just couldn't put it down because I needed to know where the story would go next. Beware guys, this is a one sitting read for sure. Get your housework done and kids fed before you sit down to start it!!
Another amazing read from Elle Brooks. In my opinion her writing goes from strength to strength. If you love you angst filled reads with sex, hot men and a twist of suspense - Reveal is a MUST READ!!
