No touching allowed …

After serving her country, Georgia Trulane craves adventure—and sex. She's set her sights on her brother's best friend—now her boss, since she took a temporary job as his nephew's live-in nanny. Only problem? Eric refuses to touch her. That doesn't stop Georgia from seducing him. But an earth-shattering encounter leaves her fully exposed, body and soul.

Eric has a long list of reasons to steer clear of the woman he has wanted for as long as he can remember. For one, he refuses to be her next thrill ride. When he claims her, it will be for good. But the attraction is undeniable, and the more they fight it, the stronger it pulls. But will it be enough to conquer their obstacles?

After several years on the other side of the publishing industry, Sara Jane Stone bid goodbye to her sales career to pursue her dream—writing romance novels. Sara Jane currently resides in Brooklyn, New York with her very supportive real-life hero, two lively young children and a lazy Burmese cat.

My Rambles

This is the first book that I have read by Sara Jane Stone and my first "in love with my best friend's sibling" storyline. [Honestly, I think that I have been subconsciously avoiding this troupe.] I am happy to say that I was really pleased with Stone's writing and the storyline.
Georgia Trulane has recently gotten out of the military and returned to her hometown. Determined to live life to the fullest after a tough tour in the military, Georgia becomes sort of a thrill seeker to help keep the war demons at bay. To help keep her out of trouble, Liam (Georgia's brother) gets her a job as his best friend Eric's nanny. [Eric has recently become a guardian to his young nephew. Eric's sister and her husband were killed in a car accident.]
Although they have been friends since childhood, Georgia and Eric never had to own up to their attraction to each other. That is - until they end up living in the same house. When Georgia's carpe diem attitude and Eric's do thing right thing attitude clash, romantic sparks start to fly and it's more than either one bargained for when they agreed to the work arrangement.
Neither wants to expose their feelings or their issues. Drama ensues.
Stone's storyline touches on a number of serious issues with a light and entertaining hand. I found the characters to be engaging and relatable - including Eric's little nephew. I read the entire book in one day. I really liked that Georgia is a former solider with PTSD. It's usually the guy in the rough situation - especially in romance novels. 
Full Exposure is sexy, funny, and heart-warming. It has appeal across genres.
Oh... did I mention that Full Exposure is sexy? When those romantic sparks flare... oh my.
I am looking forward to the release of Caught in the Act (book two in the series) this fall. It's centers around Georgia's brother, Liam. I am also going to pick up a copy of Command Performance - another book by Sara Jane Stone.
So what are you waiting for? Enter to win a copy of Full Exposure right now! 
NOTE: This book contains mature themes and language. I'd recommend it for 18+audiences.
I read this book as part of a Tasty Book Tour. I purchased my own copy.
