Review | SHEER by Sarah Robison

September 7, 2018 | 2018, review, sarah robinson / 0 Comments

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.

Overall, I generally enjoyed the story of SHEER, but there were a few things that kept me from loving it. SHEER is the third installment to the Exposed series. It’s definitely a low angst and quick read.

I’ve been curious to hear about Simone and Grant’s story, they were able to hit it off right away and found themselves in a casual thing since Grant was only around temporarily. With Grant withholding a pretty big secret, I wasn’t looking forward to the aftermath of it all. I loved how Simone was firm in what she believed in and wanted, she knew that she was worthy of everything good in her life. Even though what she had with Grant would be temporary, she still went in any way and took it one day at a time. I think neither one of them expected their feelings to quickly grow for one another, so I was curious to see how they’d make it work. I really loved how deep their emotions were for each other and as days passed by, I was getting nervous for when they’d have to say good-bye. I kept screaming, just communicate and find a way to make it work!

I wish the book was a bit longer, so there would be more development in their relationship. I didn’t mind the insta-love between them, just wanted to see more of the romance as we watched their relationship grow. There were some time jumps in there that gave me pause, but not enough to really hinder my reading experience. Once Grant’s huge secret was revealed, it kind of went quickly from being resolved and then being OK with it. It always felt like he was forgiven a bit too quickly.

Sarah Robinson fans and fans of this series will still enjoy this story!
