L. Marie Adeline, S.E.C.R.E.T Shared, (2013), 273p
Well I guess I liked the previous book in this series enough to read the second one. I will also, likely, be picking up the third book – which will be further than I got in the 50 Shades series. Sorry EL James.
Like I’ve said before, I’m not a huge erotica fan but I wanted to push myself out of my historical fiction/YA fiction comfort zone. I think this might just be the series to make me read more of this genre. I was even talking with a couple of the gals from my book club about possibly picking a so-called “dirty read” for us all to read.
This one starts off right where S.E.C.R.E.T left of. Cassie was dealt a devastating blow in her love life – her chance with her one true love seems far out of her reach. Instead of wallowing, she attempts to pick herself back up and put all of her energy towards leading the club’s newest recruit through her nine fantasies. Dauphine is a young, shy, retro belle type who has been burned by friends and lovers in the past. S.E.C.R.E.T helps Dauphine reignite her passion and discover her self confidence. The situations are even hotter and Cassie finds herself in some romantic entanglements of her own.
This book was a quick, sexy read and was pretty entertaining. Adeline flexed her creative muscles and came up with new, fun scenarios for Dauphine – with some repeat guest stars from the first book. It made me giggle and made me blush, which I think every erotica novel should do.
Happy reading –
