Sierra Dean is back with another instalment in the Secret McQueen series. This time Sierra is engaging in her usual mischief but she also has a more serious matter to attend to…her wedding. Being married to the werewolf king, Lucas should solve all her problems, but it seems that there is more to it than just saying, “I do” at the altar. As Secret figures that mess out, there is also the pressing issue of her werewolf uncle. As family feuds arise, Secret also has her hands full when it comes to the love interests in her life. All this makes for a thrill ride and Dean doesn’t not disappoint.

I have to say that I just adored Secret and her antics. She’s always an entertaining one to read and though she is kickass, she never has that iciness to her that I think a lot of other assassin heroines have. She’s very easy-going and admirable, but when it comes down to the real deal, Secret is all business and handles herself well. Secret has gained a new fan in me.

I was impressed by the way Sierra Dean wrote this book because it was very action-packed without really getting lost in the action. It was just smooth sailing throughout the whole thing with lots of laughs and some moments that made me go, “Oh my God!”

There’s a great a balance between the emotional aspect of the story and the action. I loved that Secret was strong but she had Holden around to keep her company. It just shows how well rounded Dean makes her characters because you seem to just love them all.

More emphasis is focused on Secret’s werewolf side, so if you enjoy that, then you’re in for a treat!

It’s funny that there is a product warning for this book: Contains a grumpy bride who shouldn’t be wearing wedding white, a motley crew of bridesmaids, a dangerous scenic drive in the woods and a smoking-hot trio of suitors who might be too scorching to touch.

To be honest, it is spot-on! I think maybe that quote alone would be a better review than what I just wrote. Nevertheless, KEEPING SECRET will rock your socks off!

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
