When a sexy encounter comes like a dream…
Brooke Stewart thinks she’s finally safe and can move on from her past. But after one night at the Trio Hotel and meeting the sexy stranger with the green eyes that can steal one’s soul, her life is changed forever. Passions run deep. The fun is supposed to be for one night with no strings attached.
Sexy millionaire Jett Mayfield can have any woman he wants, but the night he sees Brooke, he knows what he has to do. Brooke has something Jett desperately wants, something he can’t admit to the woman he tries to get to surrender. He has a secret so deep it would upend her life if she found out too soon. He’s almost reached his goal, and then she gets a letter she was not meant to read. Suddenly, secrets get a completely new meaning.
When two hearts collide, at least one is bound to shatter.
A man who takes what he wants
A woman who’s ready to give him one night
One bet that turns into a game of seduction
But Mr. Sexy drives in the fast lane. And he has a secret that could destroy her
I’m not going to lie, from the moment that I closed the book on Treasure Your Love, I was one of those readers who felt like I just needed more. I wanted more of that sizzle, more mystery, and more of Brooke and Jett. When I discovered that JC Reed would be writing a spinoff series based on these two firecrackers, I was over the moon and The Lover’s Secret did not disappoint!
I absolutely loved the way that this story sucked you in. The fun little “game” was a great way to remind lovers of the Surrender trilogy just how spunky Brooke and Jett could be, or introduce new readers to the fun that they are capable of. It was sexy and intriguing and definitely got your appetite for the story started. Though there isn’t a ton of time where these two characters are together, I thought that the author did an excellent job in showing us into their personalities and insecurities. Jett is a cool, calm, and collected alpha male who takes control of any and all situations. Brooke is Finding her way in the world with her own aspirations, but not quite succeeding on reaching them. The Lover’s Secret was a perfect little morsel of mystery to get readers interested in where their journey will take them next.
I finished the book, and for the first time ever had to keep reading at the sneak preview of the next in the series. J.C. Reed sure knows how to write a suspense novel and I can’t help but devour every word she writes. While I have several guesses as to where the next book is going, I know to never get too comfortable because I’m sure there will be twists and turns that blindside me. Now that I’m finished, I only have one thought……is it September yet? 😉
