ARC Review of The Lover's Secret by J.C. Reed

Goodreads Summary:
When a sexy encounter comes like a dream and leaves like a nightmare…

Brooke Stewart thinks she’s finally safe. After witnessing the crime of a killer, she 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 game is supposed to be for one night with no strings attached.

What she doesn’t know is that the sexy stranger has an agenda of his own. Brooke Stewart has something he desperately wants, something he can't admit to the woman he tries to get to surrender. 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.

Is the past really ever the past?

My Review:
This one starts off hot and heavy right away. Brooke is meeting her "date" in a hotel bar. She spots him right away. A steamy over night stay ensues! Although this is a new series if follows the characters of the Surrender books! I loved the characters in the Surrender series so seeing them here was great. So reading that series is probably a good idea. That way you will know a little more about why Brooke has so many trust issues and why she is so paranoid. Luckily for us the man Brooke is going to meet is none other then Jett. Her boyfriend. They are role playing for most of the story. You know, trying to spice things up a bit. However, Brooke's getaway weekend turns into one of the worst shes had. Jett is keeping secrets from her, lying to her. Can she get past his indiscretions or will she leave?

Jett and Brooke have a pretty hot relationship. Their weekend of passion is none other then hot. They click so well together. You can tell that they love each other. They haven't always had an easy relationship. They have been through some pretty crazy things. They are trying to get over them and have a healthy relationship. Everything seems to be ok until Brooke starts noticing things. Deleted emails on her account, texts on Jett's phone, and him sneaking around during their love-fest. Almost by accident Brooke stumbles upon Jett in a compromising position. What will she do? Where will she go from here? 

This was a fun and fast read. I really enjoy these characters. This story has went in a direction I was soo not expecting! I love it! Keeps up readers on our feet. I am really curious as to what is going to happen with these two. The title of the next book has me insanely interested. I can't wait!
