To Katie life was simple. She wanted a little house in upper Boston, and four kids fathered by her best friend Jason, who she's been infatuated with since she was eight.

Jason is on a mission and he's come halfway around the world to complete it. Despite his feelings for Katie, he won't let her resistance deter him, even if it means she'll never trust him again. As their world spirals out of control, their relationship will be tested and changed forever. If he can keep them alive and out of harm's way, he may have a chance to make everything right.

    I'm not really sure if so many liked this book because they received it for free or because they were beta readers and decided to be nice to the author. This book wasn't all that great, it wasn't horrible, but it definitely wasn't a must read.

    All the characters are flawed in one way or another. Every person in this book is over 25 but the book reads like a YA book. At times I felt like I was reading about a high school romance instead of an adult relationship with two grown people.

    Also, the author mentions a bit of background information on some characters like we are supposed to know what the hell she's referring to. When the POV turns to Ric and Roberta, I had no clue what was going on. At one point I was so confused I had to stop reading and actually search the author's other works to see if there was a prior book to this one. Turns out, there is. Ric and Roberta have their own book but under a completely different series...that's where the confusion lies.

    This books only saving grace is the kidnappers mysterious element and the sex. That's it.

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

    The overall story was a good idea, but the telling of the story seemed disjointed to me, and at times confusing, almost like this wasn't
    the first book in the series. There were flashbacks that were mentioned at times that seemed like they were giving the reader a quick 
    jog of the memory on a past story, but I've not been able to determine if those characters indeed have their own story (Ric and his wife 
    and how they met for example). The end was a bit unbelievable, I can understand Katie's brother Ric jumping into action to help, but 
    I'm not sure if Dante knew about her all along and that's why he rushed to help, I only know that his helping is the setup for his own
    story (book 2 in the series). And the ending, that was the reason for all that transpired in the story?

    A quick, light read, but I more than likely won't finish up the series.

    I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

    I loved this story! I liked Katie's character in the last book and I was so sad for her when she disappeared after receiving the news that changes her life. I love that we weren't introduced to her best friend, Jason, until this book. He was such a good friend to her in this book. I love how their story develops after so many missed communications and missed cues! This series has sucked me in and I am so excited that Dante is getting a story.

    Couldn't wait to finish!

    This book was written so terribly. The story line was unbelievable and the characters were shallow. I felt like the entire book was written by a child. I couldn't wait to finish, only because I hate starting a book and not finishing it. It was not sexy and not interesting. The language was immature and repetitive.

    I was given this Beta in exchange for my honest review.




    So I really liked Ms. Jill's other series the Pride Series. My book boyfriend lives there, lol. So when I heard this was going to be a crossover series, I was very excited. 




    This is Katie and Jason's book. Katie is the little sis of Ric Derby, owner of The Blue Spot Galleries. She came to visit him, and ran out in a hurry. Lasting Pride ends with her life in major turmoil. Here we get the story. 




    Katie leaves the States and goes on a year long self discovery journey across Europe. She is trying to escape the spotlight, that has been thrown on her, due to her mother's affair and her two very wealthy, high up dads. She is hurt and everyone seems against her, including her long time best friend, Jason. 




    Jason sets off in search of Katie, when no one hears from her. He is worried about his friend, and there still is the matter of "the kiss" to deal with. The kiss that ruined everything, their friendship, her heart and her trust. When mommy dearest offers to pay his way around to find her, he takes the opportunity. 




    Only time will tell if they can mend there friendship. But that will have to wait, because his easy mission just got harder. With money comes trouble, and her dads have all kinds of money. What happens when mommy and daddy are rich? Kidnappings and Ransoms and bears oh my. Just playing, no bears. Now they must evade the thugs, that are trying to get them. 




    The end plan is to meet up with her BD as she calls him, her Biological Dad. She is also going to meet her brother, Dante. Dante runs New Edge back in Portland. Hopeful the family can start to function as an unit, again. 




    So I can already tell, this is going to be a great series. Love it already. I can't wait to see what Secret Pleasure  has in store for us. I'm already looking forward to doing a reread of both of the series, back to back. 




    Oh and the Secret series has started off 
     
    Ms. Jill not only gave us sexy covers, she upped her game and gave us sexier scenes. 




    Thanks to the author for giving me more of the characters I love. I may be crushin on Jason. Shhh, don't tell Iian.

    It was a awesom ebook to read the anticipation, the suspense, everything wrapped in one book. Although they had the most kinkiest ways to start up sex :)

    Okay for a diversion. Easy to scan and still get the whole story. Needs a basic proofreading and editing. Won't bother with this writer again.

    This girl is dumb as they come

    The characters in this book are extremely childish. If I were running for my life, I would not stop at every turn to question the person keeping me alive. Real Women are not that stupid! I'm only a few chapters in and may not be able to finish. Glad it was free!

    I did not absolutely love this book, but I enjoyed reading it.

    After finding out a huge secret about her family Kate runs away to Europe without telling anyone where she is going. Jason, her best friend, is hired to follow her to make sure she is ok. When a couple of thugs try to kidnap Katie, Jason realizes that she is grave danger and someone is out to cause her and her family harm. Jason and Katie journey to Rome to meet up with Katie's family trying to outrun the thugs that are after them.

    The suspenseful action in this book could have been better but overall a very enjoyable read. It ending in a pretty good cliff hanger so I can't wait to read the other books in this series.


    Note: You might want to read Lasting Pride before this one because characters from this book show up in Secret Seduction and it bothered me a little bit that these characters were written in a such a way that the author expected you to know their story. (less)

    I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.
    I really liked this book. This is the second book I've read by Jill Sanders, and I think she does a fantastic job!
    Katie rams from the family she thought she knew. After a year of traveling and seeing sights, she is suddenly attacked. In steps Jason. He has been following Katie for most updating an informant on how she is doing. He see Katie being attacked and comes to her rescue. While feelings become stronger between the two while they are both on the run. They realize someone is trying to kidnap Katie for ransom, so they travel to safety to Rome. Will they be able to finally be together, or will the person chasing down Katie finally catch up to them?
    Loves this book and can't wait to read more! Will be looking into reading her Pride series as well.

    ** Beta Reader - ARC given by author in exchange for an honest review**




    I loved this story!!! It has suspense, mystery and love.




    Katie has loved her friend Jason since she was eight. One night, while out with Jason, she gets a phone call from her mom, that sends her life upside down. Katie can't take anymore of the news or seeing her friends on tv discussing her situation, so she runs leaving everything behind including her cell phone. Desperate to find her, Jason is the one sent to look for her. Once he finds her, they realize someone is out to get her. Secret Seduction keeps you wanting to read more and more - to find out why people are after Katie, who is her family and what happens with Jason. 




    Can't wait for the next installment.

    This was a fast-paced fun and sexy adventure. Sanders brings us

    This was a fast-paced fun and sexy adventure. Sanders brings us right into the action from the word Go with this one. I did enjoy the flashbacks to the childhood relationship between the two characters, building their history as we are whisked along on this high-stakes ride. The chemistry was undeniable, and the plot was intriguing. While I enjoyed learning about their history through the flashbacks, I think I would have preferred an actual scene depicting their relationship at the point of the kiss at the party right before she gets the call from her mother that changes her life. I would have liked to actually experience the dynamic between them at this point in their relationship, rather than hearing it also in flashback mode. I think I might have rooted for them more as a couple in the beginning if I'd experienced this interaction first hand. It took me a little while to warm up to the characters, to feel for them and empathize with them because we were thrust right into the action before we got to know them. However by the mid-point I was definitely captivated and very entertained. I really liked the way the ending eluded to the culprit behind the kidnapping and hinted at more trouble to come. I'm definitely curious to read the next installment. Well done!

    more from this reviewer

    Fantastic Start to a NEW Series!

    What kind of news could be so devastating to you that you would leave everything behind and wander Europe for a year, not telling anyone where you were or even if you were alive? For Katie, her devastating news became global gossip and traveling anonymously was her only escape while she came to terms with a life that had been a huge lie. Her most heartbreaking loss was Jason, her best friend and the man she was in love with, and one-sided love can be a humiliating thing. So far, life on the back roads of Europe hasn’t been too bad, until that one terrifying night when she is attacked. A Guardian Angel came to her rescue, the same one who has been following her on her journey, hiding in the shadows. Imagine Katie’s shock at discovering it was Jason who saved her, and that he may be the only thing that stands between her and an almost certain death as they begin a nightmarish run for their lives trying to stay one step ahead of the shadowy evil that stalks them. Katie knows Jason is holding something back, not telling her something, but she hasn’t quite figured out what that something is. And what is it Jason wants to talk about? Surely, it’s just to tell her he doesn’t feel “that way” about her, or does he? Who is after Katie and why? Will they reach safety on their own, or will help come from a completely unexpected source?

    With all of the intrigue and the race to stay alive, Secret Seduction by Jill Sanders is still a tender love story, filled with innocence and passion. Centered around two main characters, Secret Seduction is sigh-worthy. Katie is such a wonderful character, strong and smart in so many ways, yet so naïve in others. Jason has a quiet strength, sense of loyalty and a protective nature that makes you want to find out if he has a brother! The dialogue was very realistic, as were the backgrounds and details of each scene. I was glad to be the proverbial fly on the wall during the hiking scenes, which in spite of it being fiction, made my feet hurt!

    Secret Seduction is a tremendous start to the Secret Series from talented author Jill Sanders! Do you like romance? Action? A refreshing twist of a plot with characters you can truly root for? Give this one a try!

    Katie has been on the run for a year after her mother told her some devastating news. Jason has been following her, making sure she is safe. When Katie is attacked by two men, Jason rescues her and they decide to flee across Europe to evade the men. When Katie's family receive a ransom note it is decided that Katie and Jason will meet her family in Rome.

    Jill very kindly allowed me to read this before publication and to write an honest review. If you have read Jill's Pride series, then you will love this series just as much. If you haven't read the series, you have to read it as soon as possible as you have missed a treat.
