Deadly Secret is the second book in the Sons of Broad series and I have to say that I enjoyed this book more than the first book, Darkest Night. This book has the continuation of the overarching plot involving The Gentleman who is out to ruin the Benedict brothers although his reasons for wanting to ruin them is still quite unknown. In Darkest Night, Bea had been attacked and told to stay away from Knox Benedict but what no one knew was that Bea and Knox were actually married and the demand to stay away from him was not an easy request. Knox for his part gave his wife the distance she was asking for but only because she had been attacked and he thought she just needed time to deal it. He wanted to be with her, desperately, but their entire marriage had been kept a secret because Bea wanted it that way and he didn’t want to do anything to jeopardize her wishes. Knox was not expecting that Bea would keep her distance with no intention of reaching out to him. Bea had to though because her attacker was very clear that harm would come to Knox if she didn’t keep her distance and she loved him too much to risk harm coming to him. Bea also figured out that the attack was not about really Knox, rather is was about what she was investigating on behalf of Knox’s family business. So, she was going to give the attacker what he requested in appearance, she would keep her distance from Knox but she was going to keep her investigation going in order to figure out why she was targeted. If she was able to solve the mystery to who was behind the attack she might be able to end it all and have her husband back. Things are never that simple though and Bea was about to learn the hard way what it was like to deal with evil. I liked the characters of Bea and Knox very much and bonus, no insta-love here. They were a newly married couple but they were both serious individuals and had none of the puppy love going on that was in the first book. There was a bit of a second chance romance feel to their story and that was very nice. As far as the overarching plot goes, there was a little movement. I am still in the dark about the motivations of The Gentleman and there was a reveal about the true identity of one of the characters but I already figured that one out in book one. So, there were no big reveals for me or twists but Deadly Secret was enjoyable and I am going to continue with this series. This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
