Secrets secrets...

Every moment of this book was highly enjoyable! I could not put it down.

While reading, one thinks that the plot is a little cliche and predictable. But I could not have guessed the truth about Michael and Charlie's secrets in a million tries!

Plot twists and drama are organically derived from the characters and do not feel forced or out-of-left-field as they do in soapy novels. The characters are completely lovely and their chemistry is smoking hot!

I'll be holding onto this one for another go soon!

I loved this author's other work so i bought this in the hopes it would be just as good. I wasn't disappointed. The hero was refreshingly real. The emotion was real. And the writing is good.
