It was just a typical Monday.

Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.

After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed.

Or so I thought…

Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.

My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.

And that was the good part of my day.

Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.

A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.

A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.

A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.

Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare.

Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.

But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client
…was there?



I can’t get enough of Vi Keeland. THE NAKED TRUTH was another winner and I’m so thrilled I have yet to read most of her back list.

Here we meet Layla, an attorney. and bad boy and ex-con Grayson. Right from the beginning we know that they share history and it’s not the good kind. Grayson hurt Layla when he lied to her by omission, something he definitely should have told her but, knowing his background story, you understand why he didn’t. Gray wants Layla back and he will stop at nothing.

Once you’ve had true love, anything else feels like settling, and no one should ever settle when it comes to love.

I cannot even begin to say how much I loved Gray and his tenacity, how he single-mindedly went after her. He was head over heels, punch-drunk in love with Layla and did everything he had in his expansive repertoire to earn her trust back.

He kissed me for a long time after that. Slow, beautiful, romantic sensual kisses that a young girl dreamed about. Kisses you felt in your heart.If I hadn’t been so enraptured by the moment, I might’ve worried that what I felt in my heart was a lot more than a kiss.

Layla on the other hand fought her feelings with tooth and nails. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice…and all that. She put up a good fight but she was helpless against Gray’s relentless pursuit and wooing and soon her walls came down.

These characters have an insane chemistry. Gray’s panty-melting dirty talk made me want to grab a cold shower every half hour. Dayum, he was one enigmatic, possessive, sexy mofo.

I’m learning that Vi Keeland is a master of writing twists like nobody’s business. I knew Layla would get hurt again but I didn’t see coming how it would transpire. That’s one more reason I love her stories. I found so many beautiful quotes in this book, so memorable I could fill pages of them. The Naked Truth is a hot little number with everything you wish for in romance: a sexy man who needs a second chance with the love of his life and takes no prisoners, a strong, clever heroine with sass and attitude, wonderful secondary characters, lots of humor and emotions to boot.

Tomorrow or whenever you reflect back on everything—when you think of all this bad stuff I just unloaded on you — I need you to also remember one other thing.”
I paused and waited until she was really looking into my eyes before continuing.
“I’m in love with you, Layla Hutton—so fucking in love with you it hurts to think about losing you.”
