In the riveting conclusion to the "SECRET" series, Cassie, a rundown waitress whose self-esteem, confidence, and sex life were reinvigorated by the S.E.C.R.E.T society, is currently picking up the pieces of her broken heart after her longtime love, Will, rejected her for her participation in the group. She has taken refuge in the arms of Jesse, but with their own fraught past, "no strings attached" seems harder to maintain than ever. Meanwhile, new (and final) S.E.C.R.E.T. recruit Solange Faraday, one of New Orleans's most promising young news anchors, is navigating her own Steps while balancing a demanding job, motherhood, and a mountain of inhibitions. With great pacing, great sex, and a plot that is just as entertaining as the raunchier parts, this novel tackles drama and dirt with a deft hand. Solange is a fantastic new character—kind and cautious, with a lot of sass. Readers will enjoy exploring her fantasies and watching her rekindle her sexual prowess. VERDICT Despite the large number of characters to juggle, Adeline does a masterly job of filling the reader in, so much so that it isn't imperative to be familiar with the "SECRET" series, though it is strongly encouraged. Fans and new readers alike will not be disappointed with this fun, sexy final installment.
