ARC Book review: Expose Me (Fifth Avenue Trilogy #3) by Kate Hewitt
eARC provided by the publisher through Netgalley
The third and final step to revenge in the fifth avenue trilogy. Alex has the power…
TEN YEARS AGO ONE DEVASTATING NIGHT CHANGED EVERYTHING FOR AUSTIN, HUNTER AND ALEX. NOW THEY MUST EACH PLAY THEIR PART IN THE REVENGE AGAINST THE ONE MAN WHO RUINED IT ALL.
With ruthless determination, Alex Diaz has risen up from his deprived roots to become the head of a global media empire. But he has one last thing to achieve…avenge his friend by destroying the man responsible for her death, Jason Treffen. With stunning talk-show host Chelsea Maxwell about to interview Treffen live on TV, this is Alex’s chance.
He’ll use her show to exact a very public revenge—and seducing Chelsea, if needed, would certainly be no hardship. But he underestimates Chelsea and the attraction between them, and as their relationship deepens, Alex realizes that to annihilate Treffen could also shatter the life that Chelsea has built to protect herself…
This is the last book in a trilogy of books written by three different authors. Having read all three i don't feel like it's something that you can tell by the writing. Each author for me has successfully picked up the story and went with it seemlessly. Each book in the trilogy is about one of three best friends who are dealing with guilt and regret of the death of a woman who was their friend as well and they feel they let down to detriment of her life. Now years later they are working at avenging her. This book in the culmination of that and hopefully forgiveness for themselves. In Expose Me Alex Diaz needs to get Chelsea Maxwell on board with the plan to destroy Jason Treffen. Chelsea is a talk show host that gets has been stars to break down and tell all their secrets but she dreams of being a serious newswoman and Jason Treffen is her chance. She has scored a exclusive interview with him. Alex needs her to expose him. He doesn't want to tell her details of what that entails until she agrees. It doesn't take Alex long to find out Chelsea is tougher that he thinks. They constantly are butting heads but in between all that Alex starts to see the slight cracks in Chelsea and just maybe there is a reason she is so ice cold on the outside. Alex has his own issues and if Chelsea has to share he's going to have to as well. Great ending to the series but for me it came kind of quickly at the end. It left me feeling like there should've been just a little bit more. Maybe a epilogue 6 months later or something. This is a very dramatic and emotional series with a serious topic but you can feel the love that is brought out in the character's by learning how to trust in themselves and in each other. I wasn't sure how i would like this trilogy written by three separate authors with a continuing story but having now finished i would say they knocked it out of the park. Well done.
