Review of Reveal by Elle Brooks

I used to believe in destiny.

I was six years old when I first took to the stage, and I’ve danced every day since. It’s the biggest part of who I am. The fuel that drives me forward.

My oxygen...
My life... 
My soul. 

The stars were perfectly aligned, and my fairy tale had slowly begun to play out like a beautifully scripted passage from a romance novel. I was all set to live my happily ever after… 

Until I wasn’t.

If dancing was my heart, Daniel was the blood that kept it beating. I was content with supporting him as he worked towards his music dreams, but then he disappeared, leaving me scared, alone and suffocating under the crushing weight of his debts. 

It’s said that opportunity often comes disguised as misfortune.

When one door closes, another one opens. But I wasn’t prepared for it to belong to Reveal, one of New York City’s most exclusive Burlesque Clubs. 

It feels as though the universe is conspiring against me until fate thrusts two very different men into the equation. And what they have in common, no one could have predicted. 

Destiny may have delivered them both, but who stays is my choice. 

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

What happens when the boyfriend you have loved completely with all of your heart up and leaves you?  As if leaving was not bad enough, what if he also leaves his monstrous debts behind for you to take care of?  What would you do?  In Elle Brooks’ newest book Reveal, all the answers to these questions are revealed!  Ms. Brooks skillfully created characters are well developed and so real that they could be you or me.

Robyn has always been a dancer, since she was six years old.  She's a loving, yet gullible person who cares for everyone.  Her parents were so loving and supportive that it makes her life even harder to deal with when her longtime boyfriend Daniel, up and leaves her.  He left her scared and tying to pay off his debts.  Yet out of the shadows of this deep murky darkness comes not one, but two guys who change her life and help her to become a stronger person so she can move on.  How lucky is that?

Callum is the owner of a burlesque bar called Reveal.  Cal is rough around the edges and a hardcore hottie.  He's been burned in the past and isn't looking for anything past a quick lay.  When Robyn, or Tweet as he likes to call her walks into his life and becomes a dancer at his bar, his whole world is rocked on its axis.  He has a policy though...NO SLEEPING WITH EMPLOYEES.  Will he be the good boss?  Or will he succumb to the world of everything Robyn?

Cole has been living by the book all his life.  Always impeccably dressed to the nines and of course he is a true gentleman.  Cole is a force to be reckoned with. Now an attorney in a major law firm in the city, he's looking for something.  When he bumps into the most beautiful girl he has ever laid eyes on and gets a hot coffee bath at the same time, things change for him. He wants her, Robyn.  Trying to woo her in every way he knows, Cole is frustrated because she only wants to be friends with maybe a few benefits.  Can Cole capture her heart and finally get the girl he wants?

Although, we do find out that the two new men in Robyn's life do have something in common.  I won't spoil you with the details, so you will have to read to find out.  I have to say I was a little worried where this story was going as I read the first couple chapters of the book. However, once I started reading, I couldn't put it down.  I was instantly hooked!  I was cheering for both men and of course Robyn, but in the end, I love the way it turned out!  This is an amazing story and everything I expected from Elle Brooks.  She is a magnificent writer who will carry you through a story with beautiful elegance and have you begging for more.  Nice reveal, Elle!
