Feeling like she couldn't direct those types of movies without her heartache tainting them, she had thought she pulled herself out of the directing buisne I didn't LOVE this book but I far from HATED it. Feeling like she couldn't direct those types of movies without her heartache tainting them, she had thought she pulled herself out of the directing buisness. Or at least that was her intentions. Ryker was also a director but couldn't quite nail the Romantic feel in his movies.
He sets off to Oregon to enlist the talents if Alix Z to help him get the romance scenes right so he may finally win an Oscar and the critics who hated his love scenes. Predictable enough, she was reluctant to help him because he had a bad boy image and she wanted nothing more then to be around that. She started off as a strong character but seemed to lose her backbone shortly into the first little bit of the book.
Alix actually annoyed me more often then not but thats because I prefer a stronger heroine. However, I love love love bad boys so Rykers character was instantly a hit for me. Lol This book wasn't rushed at all. Actually the beginning was very slow paced compared to most of the books I normally read but did pick up a lil before I hit the half way mark. I wasn't turned off completely by Exposing Alix so this will not be my last Inara Scott book. Reviewed for Stories and Swag Dec 13, Susan rated it really liked it.
This was a fast, light and entertaining read with an unusual story line. The characters of Alix and Ryker, along with the supporting case, were realistic and well-rounded. By the end of the book, I felt as though I knew a lot about them and cared what happened to them. I also liked the fact that Ryker was comfortable enough in his own skin to not only be open to Alix's suggestions without feeling threatened, but also to help her gain confidence in herself as well.
By the end of the book, I was c This was a fast, light and entertaining read with an unusual story line. By the end of the book, I was confident that each of them would be able to help the other grow and maybe even to heal some old wounds. At first, I was worried that because of Alix's profession, the sexual encounters might be a little over the top. However, Ms. Scott did a marvelous job of keeping the intimate scenes sensual rather than overly graphic - for which I'm grateful as I believe some things are better left to the imagination! So many adult romances these days have become far too graphic for my taste and as a result, I find myself reading a lot of YA novels.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. Sep 08, Gone Readin' rated it really liked it. She has left the loveless city of Hollywood, and settled in a seaside town in Oregon with her dog. This book has great potential. In fact, I believe it would make a great movie!! I wanted them to find each other in a classier way, and some of their initial encounters were just — not my taste.
Ryker grabbing and groping Alix drops this story to 4 hearts.

But Alix vowed that she never do the deed with out love. She used that vow to protect herself. And even she knew there is some attraction between she and Ryker. She never let herself broke the vow.

I think the former cover is so much better: This cover fits the plot much better, since the plot involves the making of a film. This is where our heroin, Alix comes into the picture. She was hired to film the love scenes in the movie since our director, Ryker, finding it difficult. The roots to this matter is because he doesn't believe that love exist. There is long journey to change this view of his but don't worry, he managed to do it in the end.

Ryker and Alix, both of them had their own insecurities and issues and it was worth reading about how the overcome those things. Overall, I really liked the story. The reason to why I didn't gave it a full rating was because of how the story was written.
It was a bit slow in some places which makes it very easy to lose focus of the story. It didn't quite reach up to the flow I wanted in a story, but it's a good story nevertheless.

Alix Z is known for her epic sex scenes in Hollywood. Ryker goes to Alix for help in search for that trophy. The dilemma: Ryker does not believe in the romanticism of love. Sex is lust not love. Alix believes in capturing the very basis of love through sex. This book has so many emotions. I found myself laughing, crying, and relating to some of the characters.

Both Ryker and Alix Z were very vulnerable throughout the book. They were both opposites in the beginning Alix beleived in love through her photo book and Ryker thought love was only a bunch of bull. It seemed to be a little slow in the beginning, but then took off. I really liked Ryker from the beginning of the book.
I hated that Alex Z was distant from him where you can see she really liked him. I don't know if I could ha Another good book by Inara Scott. I don't know if I could have pulled away from Ryker as much as she did in the beginning of the book. The scene in the 'editing room' was hot, that's when the book takes off.

It's been on my kindle forever and I just decided to read it now. The title and the cover led me to believe it would be some sort of fluffy, superficial storyline. But it so wasn't! The plot was original and interesting and the character development was deep -- the reasoning behind both main characters "toying" with their names to become someone different than who they were ashamed of being in their youth was genius. It was ab I've got to say, I really liked it a lot more than I thought I would.
It was about the meaning of love -- family love and romantic love, and the characters overcoming their fear of rejection instilled in them from their childhoods. Loved it.

Apr 29, Kate VerbVixen rated it really liked it. Sometimes a girl just wants to read a steamy romance and Exposing Alix is a perfect book to fill that want. It checks off every box—-chemistry between the protagonists, depth to the plot and the characters that moves beyond just romance, asking the big questions about love, life, death and what is real and what is not.
Inara does an amazing job of balancing vulnerability and a dark past of both her characters with a hopeful and optimistic romance storyline. All in all, Exposing Alix was a perfect lazy Sunday indulgent read. Overall: A Mar 03, Karla rated it really liked it Shelves: celebrity-romance , love-at-work. There was lots of emotion in this story of two people directing a film together. I like the setting in LA and that it featured one of my favorite character types, the celebrity hero, although his fame was not much of an issue in the book.
The author did a great job with the story. Sex takes a back seat to the development of the relationship. The pacing was perfect and the dialogue good. Jul 19, Downward dog rated it really liked it Shelves: movie-star.
