tenser, Will had just recently named his new restaurant after her and he expects
Cassie to help run it.

many of her steps, S.E.C.R.E.T. helps Solange uncover something about herself
that shocks her. S.E.C.R.E.T helps her believe that maybe you CAN have it all.
S.E.C.R.E.T. Revealed, by L. Marie Adeline, is very well written with well developed,
realistic characters. I think my favorite character in the entire S.E.C.R.E.T. Trilogy
was Jesse. His bad boy appearance combined with his heart of gold did me in.
Surprisingly, I never warned up to the character of Will. I don’t know why, but he
rubbed me the wrong way in the first book, S.E.C.R.E.T. I think I held that against
Will throughout S.E.C.R.E.T. Shared and S.E.C.R.E.T. Revealed. When he dismissed
Cassie in the second novel it was the nail in his coffin. Jesse, on the other hand,
really felt like the underdog to me and I was constantly rooting for his happiness.
To me, Cassie was not fair to him; in fact she seemed to string him along quite a
bit. I was happy to see how Jesse’s 'ever after' unfolded at the end of Adeline’s
S.E.C.R.E.T. Revealed, by L. Marie Adeline, is a fun and
steamy read. I definitely recommend reading the first two novels (S.E.C.R.E.T. and
S.E.C.R.E.T. Shared) first so that you know where Cassie is coming from and what
hardships she has been through. I definitely think this is another great summer
