Set in the same world as The Promise of Amazing, this smart, surprising, and romantic follow-up to Robin Constantine’s debut novel follows two New Jersey teens as they become friends and fall in love. Perfect for fans of Sarah Mlynowski, Jenny Han, and Morgan Matson.

Madison Pryce thinks she’s got everything figured out—she’s working on a portfolio for a summer art program and hanging with her friends. Plus she has her hot boyfriend, Zach. But then a visit from a family friend turns Maddie’s life upside down.

Jesse McMann is still reeling from a breakup that shattered his heart and his band. Then pride (and some goading from his bass player and fellow barista) forces him to find a new drummer—and the inspiration to write music again.

Kismet arrives in the unlikely form of Grayson Barrett, who tries out for Jesse’s band, and whose girlfriend is BFFs with the cute girl who orders a chai latte after yoga every Thursday: Maddie. What Jesse and Maddie thought they knew about the secrets of attraction and the rules of romance changes once they start falling for each other.

I loved this book. I was a huge fan of Robin's other book, The Promise of Amazing, so I was stupid excited for Secrets. And then I realized it was Madison's story and I may have squealed a little. I loved Madison's spark. She sure of herself, fierce, loyal and feisty as hell. Getting to be in her head and see what's really going on was fantastic. There's a lot of Madison we didn't see in Promise and while she was a great part in that story, she's definitely main character material. Jesse...what do I even say about this boy? He's a musician, which pretty much just seals the deal for me. He's heartbroken, but super sweet and it's really enjoyable seeing him come back from the breakup. And the two of them together? Gah. Yes, there are some really stupid moments from both of them, but it made for a bit of a roller coaster and an immensely satisfying read. I loved seeing these characters again {Wren and Gray!} and getting to meet some new ones. And let's not forget some super hot kissing.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) “Because I had to play it… for you.” This was a YA contemporary romance about a boy in a band and a girl called Madison. Jesse seemed to be quite stressed in this story, and you couldn’t really blame him what with the drummer in his band stealing his girlfriend, and then trying to steal the song they had co-written. Never mind that his band was now down a drummer! “C’mon, Jesse. It’s been two months.” “What do you expect from me, Duncan? To say ‘No hard feelings, come back to the band. Hell, maybe Hannah can play tambourine now’. We’ll all be one big happy f*cking family, until maybe Tanner tries to hook up with her.” Madison was really nice the way she spent time with her mother the way she did, and it was obviously a shock for her when she discovered who her father was. “I’m your father, Madison.” The storyline in this followed Jesse as he tried to find a new drummer, and Madison as she found out who her father was, as well as the romance between the pair of them, which seemed to take a long time to really get going. “Jesse closed his eyes, kissing me full on the mouth, his tongue coaxing my lips open, as we fell back side by side, onto the blanket, our legs tangling up together.” The end to this was okay, but it was also a bit annoying as I felt like it wasn’t very concrete, I think I’d have like an extra chapter just so we knew for sure what happened. 6 out of 10
