S.E.C.R.E.T is about Cassie, a widowed waitress. One of her regulars drops a notebook and Cassie picks it up. To see who it belongs to, she reads a few pages and what she finds in it intriques her. It is a bunch of sexual encounters in the notebook. After returning the notebook she is approached by S.E.C.R.E.T, the group that was helping the customer and asked to join – this group will make all her fantasies come true.
She is given a bracelet and as she finishes each of the steps, she will receive a charm to add to her bracelet. Cassie decides to join the group and through each of her fantasies she sees herself becoming more like herself – the real her that had been hidden inside.
Meanwhile, it appears that she and her boss have always had a bit of a thing for each other. Will they end up hooking up for good?
The ending was a bit surprising and not something that I really saw coming. It was an interesting book. I actually picked it based on the cover alone – I liked the bracelet! There was no snippit of what the book was about when I chose it. Hading known what it was about I may have been more hesitant to choose it, but I am glad I did read it.
I received a free e-copy of the book from the publisher through NetGalley in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
