New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s novel of dangerous secrets, dark pasts, and sizzling heat.

No one would guess that dedicated teacher Arden Forbes is a billionaire. His profession gives him a purpose that wealth alone can’t provide. He’s developing another passion, too, for Keera Thompson, the new principal. She’s beautiful, enigmatic, guarded, and—after a series of violent school break-ins—in need of protection. And Arden is eager to supply it. But what he wants most is to unearth the mysteries that surround her.

After a troubling past, Keera thought she’d be safe in this sleepy town and that she’d never be shaken again. Yet nothing has unsettled Keera more than her desire for Arden—honorable, gorgeous, and available when she craves him. But despite their explosive chemistry, when it comes to letting Arden in, Keera has her limits…and her secrets.

As the threats escalate, Keera fears that everything she’s been running from is closing in, and there’s only one man to trust. But will the truth drive Arden away…or will it bring the two closer than ever before?

I have to say I loved Arden and Keera's story. It is a fast paced, action packed, somewhat steamy read that had me from the very beginning with getting Max (the dog) who I fell in love with. The story-line on this one was different from any I've read and I just couldn't put it down.

** I was very fortunate to win Arden (Undercover Billionaire, #2) in a Goodreads giveaway for an honest review no compensation was given.** Arden is the second book in this series about the incredibly hot Forbes' brothers and the women that tame them. I did read the first book in this series and really liked that one also, but if you are just picking up this series, with the second book, you will not be confused or lost. Ms. Anne does a good job of explaining past characters. Be warned, you will want to go back and read Kian! I always enjoy Ms. Anne writing style, she has the ability to put the reader into the mindset of the main characters and this enables the reader to really connect with them. Arden is a billionaire, but being a high school history teacher gives his life real meaning. He comes from a supportive and loving family. Keera has been the principal at the high school for about a month, and has been avoiding Arden. She is not looking for a relationship. Something has happen in her past that has left her broken and distrustful of people, especially a totally hot history teacher who just happens to also be the football coach with great abs. Ahh, and then there is Max, -who I fell in love with- his soft brown eyes and complete devotion to Keera won me over, and that is all I am will to say on that subject. There were some very suspenseful parts to this book and it definitely kept me reading. Keera has secrets and her past just might be catching up with her. There is an abundance of sexual tension between Arden and Keera and a bit of jealousy between Arden and Max. So, will Keera let Arden not only into her bed but into her life??? This was a suspenseful, action filled book, with scorching heat. My honest opinion... this book is well worth your time. Hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Keera Thompson moved to a small town to escape the city life and her past. She was enjoying her new job as school principal until her past came back to haunt her. Billionaire Arden Forbes loved working in his hometown as a history teacher. In the ten years that he’s worked at the school, drugs have never been a problem. Until, the attractive, newly hired principal, Keera Thompson, showed up. Arden tried to keep his distance from her, but when danger surrounded her, his protective instincts kicked in. Arden is an enjoyable read, a bit cheesy at times, but captivating. I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

Another brother from Forbs family falls in love. This time Arden in his boss Keera. I must say that I am a little bit disappointed in this book, the first one was for me amazing, and I had the feeling that I read a book from a completely different author. Both Keera and Arden were well developed but I just couldn't fell in love with them. I had the feeling that it was so much repetition of Ardens feeling toward Keera, of her denaying Arden and why they should be together. All the happening was slow uneventful and boring from time to time. I just didn't fell in love with the story. I hope the next story from another brother will be great again. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly.

4.5 Stars Review by Elizabeth Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Book two in Melody Anne's Undercover Billionaire series, Arden is scorching and definite add for your TBR!!! Not long after starting a new position as a high school principal, bad things start happening. Keera is determined to find the person behind the drugs being sold out of her high school. As things start progressing, Keera believes her past has followed her to her new home. Arden has been teaching at the same high school for a decade now. When his brother tells him drug are being sold out of the school he does not believe him. Then some coke is found stashed in a locker at the school and Arden becomes livid. But it's not just drugs, someone is after Keera and Arden will do everything he can to protect her. The question is, who is after her? This is the second book I have read by Melody Anne and I was not disappointed. I felt for Keera and Arden. Keera just wants to move on from her past and Arden is just the man to help her. From the beginning you can feel the chemistry they have and when they let go....they let go and it is HOT!! Arden can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend you read Kian first.

Emotionally thrilling, sexy, action packed romantic journey filled with danger, secrets and a sourcing hot passion that will not be denied... Arden Forbes is a sexy, charming and dedicated teacher with a passion for his job and burning desire for the new principal. Keera Thompson is looking to escape a troubling past by relocating for a new job as a principal and gets so much more than she bargained for... especially when it seems the her problems only followed her. Highly entertaining and engaging story.

I've loved all the books in this series and this book is no exception. I really enjoy Melody Anne's writing style and her no games romances. Her characters know what they want and go after it with little angst in the relationship. In this one Arden is definitely interested in the new principal Keera Thompson. Unfortunately there are a couple of obstacles to overcome. First, she's his boss and doesn't want to cross that professional line. Second, and more importantly as far as Arden is concerned is that Keera has secrets. Secrets she's unwilling to share and keeping Arden at arms length because of them. When dangerous events begin happening around the school Arden is convinced Keera is in danger so he steps up his determination to win her heart and keep her safe. Will Keera trust him enough to share all of herself? I highly recommend this one.

Arden is from a very wealthy family. He teaches school at Edmonds High School where Keera Thompson is principal. It starts with a break in at Keera's office at school. Declan, Arden's brother is FBI and wants him to take Max, a retired drug sniffing K-9 to work with him. Max sniffs out a large amount of drugs in a locker at school. One bad thing after another keeps happening to Keera. She turns to the handsome Arden for help and comfort. Ethan, the Vice Principal is always around but makes Keera feel uncomfortable. There are so many secrets and unknowns which makes this book a thriller as well as a romance. Only part of the mystery is solved in this book. The chemistry between Arden and Keera is really hot. I loved the book and want to read the next one in the series so I know how it ends.I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.

Keera is the new principle at the school where Arden is a teacher and coach. When Keira’s office gets broken into, Arden runs to the rescue and that’s when their relationship begins. This book just missed the mark for me. I found the dialogue to be cliche and even though there were twists and turns ... I guessed every one of them. I just couldn’t connect with the characters, but the steamy scenes were good. I really liked the 1st book in this series and this book set up the next book in the series. This is just my opinion ... everyone has different tastes because this book did get a lot of 5 stars from other people. I received an ARC courtesy of Montlake Romance through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

She needs a hero. What she finds is a soulmate. Arden tends to be the man people overlook. His brain is his greatest weapon, but It's his heart that could be they key to his undoing. Keera haunts his every waking moment, but the secrets she keeps are making her life a living hell. They don't go looking for trouble. Somehow it seems to find them. Will the ultimate non hero be smart enough to save the day? Arden is a thriller with that has the heart of a champion and the smarts to back it up.
