Levi Grainger needs a break. As a reality show star, he’s had enough of the spotlight and being edited into a walking stereotype. When he returns home after the last season of Trip League, he expects to spend time with his family, only to learn his sister is coming back from her deployment in a flag-draped casket. Devastated, Levi decides the best way to grieve will be to go off grid and hike the Appalachian Trail—a trip he'd planned to do with his sister.
His solitary existence on the trail is interrupted when he meets Thad, a quiet man with a hard body and intense eyes. Their connection is stronger than anything Levi has ever experienced. But when Levi discovers the truth about what Thad is hiking to escape, their future together looks uncertain, and uncertainty is the last thing Levi needs...
5 out of 5 stars
Overexposed is part of Megan Erickson's In Focus M/M romance series. They can all be read as stand alones, but you do see characters from previous stories (in this one they are only in the epilogue). I have loved every book in this series, and this one was no different. Megan Erickson has become one of auto-buy authors. I love her writing.
These two were so sweet together. Levi is doing the hiking trip that he and his sister were supposed to do together, so he has a lot of ups and downs working through his emotions. Thad is the very definition of strong and silent type. He always seems to be brooding and doesn't have much to say but seems to like to hear Levi talk. They are pretty much opposites but that somehow works for them.
Both of our MCs are dealing with a loss of someone close to them, and that draws them together even more. It took me a while to warm up to Thad because he is so silent and you never know what he's thinking since this story is told in Levi's point of view. I would have loved if it was alternating person so we could have seen what was going through his head sometimes, but I guess we were supposed to wonder about him, so that may have spoiled it?? Who knows.
