“This was an easy story to fall in love with.” ~Under the Covers

Sometimes it’s so much better to go into a book and be completely surprised.  I admit I didn’t read the blurb of this book before cracking it open (Ummm hello…did you look at the cover?  Need I say more?).  I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn’t the military romance that I somehow was expecting to get.

MIDNIGHT SECRETS is a small town contemporary romance with a good suspense story.  From the very beginning, it was about getting to know Zach and Savannah, then and now.  Zach was the boy from the wrong side of town, and Savannah the daughter of one of the richest families.  Both weren’t strangers to scandals and secrets, and those secrets eventually got between them…then.

Now that Savannah is back in town, after ten years, she finds herself faced with feelings she apparently still has for Zach, who is now chief of police and mighty sexy.  And Zach has always known that she was the one, just never thought he could be forgiven.

This was an easy story to fall in love with.  I love that this series will be centered around sisters because families always work so well for me.  We get just a bit of family interaction in this one, although I would’ve liked to see more.  And then there’s the fact that this is a second chance romance, which I just love, but we get to actually read the back up story.  I think that was my favorite part of the whole story.  Seeing Zach and Savannah, teenage years, falling in love and stumbling along.  And then the difference 10 years made in each of them as individuals and also at how they are approaching a relationship.

This was not a book heavy on the suspense, however the twist at the end on who the bad guy was was interesting.  I did suspect “the baddy” just once while reading it.  So job well done.  I can’t wait to read the next in the series!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Coming from a small Southern town myself, I can attest to the fact that they are rife with intrigue and buried secrets. I am also a fan of reunion stories, so Midnight Secrets sounds just perfect.

This sounds great! I love the ‘coming home’ type stories and to toss in a mystery just makes it better.
