Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-seller Vi Keeland comes a new, sexy stand-alone novel.

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 to. 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 who crouched down and looked 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?

A REFRESHING JOURNEY OF ROMANCE & SECOND CHANCES

Well the truth is.. I love love loved this entertaining and nicely paced contemporary romance.. well it is written by the talented author Vi Keeland.. and the excellent dual POV narration was performed by two of my favorite narrators - Sebastian York and Andi Arndt.. so enough said.

Attorney Layla and mega-rich Businessman Gray had met a year previously.. under very unconventional circumstances.. and their attraction and intense chemistry was off-the-charts but, at the time, they weren’t in a position to take their relationship further. Over time, they’d become good friends and had confided in each other.. but Gray was holding back something big.. and, when Layla found out Gray had lied to her, it broke the relationship apart. This was the backstory ‘off book’.

Now Gray, free to act on his deep feelings for Layla, is determined to win back the beautiful, smart and sassy woman who charmed him a year ago, the sweet woman whose soul connected to his, the stubborn woman who now has a boyfriend.. the ‘hopefully’ forgiving woman who stole his heart. However, Layla had been emotionally scarred and damaged by her father’s lifelong lies and doesn’t want to hear Gray’s excuses for his lies.. but Gray doesn’t plan on giving up until Layla becomes his. Good second chance storyline which, with an unforeseen roadblock and a detour or two, becomes a third chance storyline because Gray - the sexy, generous, dirty-talking, possessive, alpha hero, selflessly screws up and derails their relationship so he needs a third chance with Layla to finally get their relationship right.. to lay his past to rest.. to change the course of his life.. and to get their well deserved HEA ending.

Worth a credit? Yes, this is an enjoyable, sweet, sexy, fun, addictive dual POV book with great characters and it was perfectly narrated too. Ms. Keeland has written a compelling book that’s got great characters, smooth banter, heart-to-hearts, sexy times, romance, touching scenes and sad times too. I swooned, drooled, sighed, chuckled and nearly cried.. but, through their push/pull journey of discovery and love, I was thoroughly, and completely, entertained.

This isn’t a typical love story.

It’s been a while since I read— or listen to —a Vi Keeland’s book. Well, at least one of her solo books, because I loved her latest duo books with Penelope Ward, The Rush Duet , which I loved like crazy. I loved all her books I read in the past, so I knew I’d love this one too, but as much as I actually do now after finishing it.

The Naked Truth features the story of Layla and Greyson. This isn’t a typical love story. They met in the most unexpected place, their short but intense relationship ended for a huge misunderstanding and now it’s the time for Greyson to gain back Layla’s heart. And what I loved about it is that it wasn’t easy for either of them. There must be forgiveness, and true love and complete trust between them so they could overpass all the obstacles and finally have their HEA.

There was a moment in the book when I was afraid to have the worst kind of drama and/or angst, but it turned out to be something completely different and I loved the outcome of it. I SIMPLY LOVED IT. I also loved two secondary characters so much— not saying because of spoilers, sorry —but they both had a great impact on Layla and Greyson’s relationship. But what I loved the most was Layla and Grey’s relationship. It was romantic, intense and so beautiful!! Like I said before, the ending of this book was THE PERFECT HEA!!!

Sebastian York and Andi Arndt did an amazing job with their narrations. They brought Layla and Greyson’s characters perfectly, their voices matched their personalities and they put so much emotion and passion into their performances, making this an even better story.

Phenomenal

I love when a book can take me through surprise twists and turns. Personally, I rarely read a synopsis to a book, so I truly loved the background story of these characters. It was so different and kept me intrigued all the way through. And Etta was a true treat!!!

In regards to the narrator's, they speak for themselves. Best duo in the biz.

Perfect!

I was worried about the guy being with another girl between their seperation because I hate when that happens in books but I should have known I had nothing to fear! This was such a great book! This author is an auto buy for me and she just keeps getting higher and higher on that pedestal. The narrators were perfect and the story was perfect so perfection all around.

Another hit listen by VI Keeland

When Vi Keeland writes something you know that it's going to be good and this was no exception.

It was a fun, sexy, angsty and emotional story which makes this a pretty perfect listen for me.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York did an amazing job narrating as usual.

Can't wait to read Vi Keeland's next book.

Second chance love you say? Sign me up i said!!

Loved this one, as you all probably know by now second chance love stories are probably one of my favourite to read, and this one had it all!

Layla is an Attorney, she is a hard worker, and is always the first one to arrive in the morning and the last one to leave at night.

A small mistake on her part had her doing some community service a few years ago, but now she is back on track and working her way up the ladder of success and maybe into a senior position at the firm.

She has a meeting with a client with a potential to make the company a lot of money, the thing is that she didn't realise the client was no other that Gray Westbrook, a former flame of hers, she also didn't realise that her feelings for him had only weakened and not died.

Gray, well what can i say about Gray but Hot Damn!!

There are a couple of things that majorly made me love him but unfortunately they would be spoilers so i'm not going to tell you them!

But what i can tell you, is that Gray is not the type of man to take no for an answer, he is not the type of guy to let someone else move in on his girl, and he is certainly not the type of man to walk away when the going gets tough!

The thing is that Layla doesn't quite agree with him, so she has to consult her 'Yeahway' list to see if it works out in her favour.

What's a Yeahway list??? Well that would be telling now wouldn't it!

🎧🎧 Narrated by the dream-team that is Andi Arndt #SexyVoiceQueen and Sebastian York #SebYesPlease

You always know when a book is narrated by these two that you are in for a treat, they are like that comfy blanket you wrap up in, you always feel safe, warm and comfy.

Narration perfection *AND* a great story, what are you waiting for, pick it up!

I loved it

Funnily enough, after reading a few chapters of this book, I pretty much thought it was cut and dried and that I would be reading a happy go lucky romance, but no! Wham bam! Curve ball, after curveball! I was just recovering from one, expecting everything to be all hunky dory again, and. Wham! Another curveball. Not so cut and dried anymore. I loved the writing, dual POV, a perfect story that pushed all my buttons, I loved the characters, Gray Westbrook, super dreamy, super sexy alpha male, wrongfully imprisoned for 3 years. A second chance romance that I adored, I was an emotional wreck in places, so much drama. A story I didn’t want to end. Full five star read for me. With my dream team Vi Keeland writing and Sebastian York and Andi Arndt narrating the audio version, it was a win win before I’d put my headphones on. I loved it.

Yet another great listen

Just finished and loved it , Vi Keeland books are always value for money and this does not disappoint ,, quite thought provoking at times and definitely brought a lump to my throat it’s quite a story I know there was a HEA but was unsure of the path it would take .
The narrators are probably the best two in the business for me which only enhances the listen but I must add Sebyo emotions are amazing cheers
I have no hesitation in recommending this book and five stars all the way

Good book

This author duo seem to reliably write solid 4 star romance books. They don’t blow me away completely, but are an enjoyable listen with good narration. This book definitely fits with that trend.
