Review – Close Up: Exposure Book Three by Annie Jocoby


CJ and Asher are back together, but face many more obstacles. Sophie is, by far, their biggest obstacle, for she will still stop at nothing to make sure that she and Asher are together in the end. Her obsession means that CJ’s life continues to be in danger, and there is only one way that Asher can protect her. His father must give his blessing to their union. If he does not, then CJ might be doomed or Asher might have to marry the devious, yet beautiful, Sophie.

As CJ struggles with recovering memories of her relationship with Asher and of her previous life, there is a sense of foreboding constantly hanging in the air. She desperately wants to be with Asher, yet the prospect of actually marrying him seems always out of reach. She also gets a close-up of Asher's previous life, which allows her to find out devastating information about him that could destroy her trust in him. He's much more dangerous than he had ever let on before, as CJ soon finds out.

The two hatch a plan that hopefully will cause Asher's father to accept CJ and give her protection. Will that plan be enough? Will Sergei Pushkin give the two lovers his blessing? Or will he force Asher to marry Sophie? And can CJ ever trust a man with such a dangerous and violent past?

I’m really torn up. I thought that this was going to be the last book in the series, but noooooooooo…I have to wait for the final installment. Oh well…

So CJ and Asher are back together, still struggling with telling the truth and figuring out how to be with each other. I have to be honest in saying that it’s not until half way through this read that I was able to re-capture my appreciation for this series. The first half of the book I found myself re-reading “what happened” to CJ and “why” because Asher was trying to get her to remember. Really? Couldn’t I just read that Asher was reminding her and not read about it? To each his own…

Fast forward to the about 50% in and now we’re REALLY talking. I knew we’d get to something compelling, it just took a little while longer. And to be honest, it’s one of the reasons I only have this 3.5 stars instead of 4.

Now that CJ knows EVERYTHING, coming up with a plan to get Asher’s father to “condone” their relationship and offer her protection becomes the focal point. Which plan will work? Do they get other people involved or try to fix this themselves? Do you really think I’m going to tell you? Ha!!!!! You’ll have to pick it up to find out not only if it works, but also what the damn cliffhanger is. Yes, another damn cliffhanger…argh!!!
