Model Exposure (2017) Lissa Kasey (Haven Investigations)

Model ExposureThis picks up immediately after the end of the previous book. Ollie is healing, but so is Kade.

But Kade doesn’t like having to admit that he needs help, and fears that if he needs help, he’ll lose Ollie.

“Ollie needs me.” He was healing from a (thing). He had blackouts, memory loss, and sometimes a complete bipolar change of his emotions. He needed me to be solid so he could heal.

“There’s no reason you can’t be there for Ollie while you’re healing. You both need to take it slow,” Jolanda said.

“He needs me to be solid. His rock.”

“And you need him to be yours. Why can’t it be an exchange? Don’t you trust him?”

“What do you fear he’ll do if you tell him just how bad off you are right now?”

Leave me. Oh God, I’d really fall apart. I was only holding it together because I went home to him every day, curled up on the chaise with him, cuddled on the couch with him and our cat, Newt. Ollie’s smile, the subtle turn of his head, the way he canted his hips when he leaned against the counter to talk to me…

The last book exposed Kade’s past, this final book gives us Ollie’s past, as her learns that his life was not what he thought.

I’ll be honest, I finished the book past my bed time, then the next day re-read a bunch of chapters, figuring out what had actually happened and why.

This book was kinda brutal for me, but not necessarily in a bad way.

“You know that little questionnaire you get every time you go in? You’re supposed to answer that honestly, not mark what you think you should feel.”

I had thought it was just me. That it was my place to fix what was wrong with me. That I’d been given help and it was my fault it wasn’t working because I wasn’t trying hard enough.

This was a very good–if very hard–series. It’s been a day and I still can’t quite get it out of my head.
