Book Review: SECRET Revealed

secretIn February of 2013 I reviewed the first book in the S.E.C.R.E.T series.  S.E.C.R.E.T Revealed is the 3rd book and I Have not yet read S.E.C.R.E.T Shared, the 2nd book.  This book alternates between Cassie, who was featured in the first book as well and Solange, a TV news personality who is a new recruit into S.E.C.R.E.T.  Each chapter alternates back and forth although their stories do intertwine a bit as well since they are both members of S.E.C.R.E.T.  Throughout the book there are mentions that Solange may be the last women to pass through because there has been some trouble with funding.  No matter what happens – this is the finale of the series so I was prepared for either ending.

Cassie is currently partners with her ex, Will, at a restaurant named after her and she is seeing Jesse – who is one of the guys also involved with S.E.C.R.E.T and making fantasies come true.  S.E.C.R.E.T is an underground group devoted to helping women experience their deepest sexual fantasies, by hot men who are recruited into the group. Solange is a divorced mom and her love life has seen better days.  But she seems a bit hesitant to accept the steps into S.E.C.R.E.T.  Will she follow through and complete all her steps?

While I don’t know if I ever would have initially picked up the first book in this series if the cover hadn’t drawn me in, I am not glad I found this series (and my have to go back and read #2 should it pop up for review).  It is a great erotic romance book and it gets right to the action – I think it started around page 2 – so there is no need for me to whine about how I had to waste my time reading half the book for a backstory. (It could also be because this is the 3rd in the series there isn’t a great need for back story!)

The back of the book also has some reading guide Q’s should you want to make it a girls weekend book club read!

Meanwhile, beautiful, brilliant Solange, a local news anchor and divorced mom, has a great career but a wilting love life. She rekindles long-lost passions, going deeper and hotter than any other S.E.C.R.E.T. candidate before her. Will she find what her heart most desires?

In the end, as both women blossom as sexual beings, they also discover that ecstasy and true love are closer than they ever imagined.
SECRET Revealed is the explosive, sensual and sexually-charged finale to the bestselling S.E.C.R.E.T. trilogy.

Book Review: The Beatles: Here, There & Everywhere

beatlesI’ve read quite a few books about the Beatles.  But I can’t recall any that had almost as many photos as text.  Which, if you’ve read any of my reviews before, you know is a good thing.  When the photos can almost tell the story on their own, I love it.  There wasn’t much new information in the book – but there were a lot of photos that I hadn’t seen before.  If you are a Beatles fan, you don’t want to miss out on this book.

Book Review: Cosby

cosbyWhen I was little, I saw Bill Cosby on the cover of TV Guide and thought he was my grandfather.  Since all my grandparents have died I decided that I can pick new celebrity grandparents – so of course I chose Bill Cosby as one of my fake grandfathers! There is now a biography out all about Bill.  It has been compiled by interviews with Bill himself as well as with SIXTY of his closest friends. I don’t know about you, but I think that means that it will pretty much cover everything about his life in great detail.

Cosby has led quite a life, so it is no surprise that this book clocks in at over 500 pages! It’s really hard to sum up everything in just a few words for this review, but if you are a fan of Bill or want to know more about his life and career, then you certainly should read this book because I don’t think you will find a more accurate and thorough representation of his life anywhere else.

About the Book

The first major biography of an American icon, comedian Bill Cosby. Based on extensive research and in-depth interviews with Cosby and more than sixty of his closest friends and associates, it is a frank, fun and fascinating account of his life and historic legacy.

Far from the gentle worlds of his routines or TV shows, Cosby grew up in a Philadelphia housing project, the son of an alcoholic, largely absent father and a loving but overworked mother. With novelistic detail, award winning journalist Mark Whitaker tells the story of how, after dropping out of high school, Cosby turned his life around by joining the Navy, talking his way into college, and seizing his first breaks as a stand-up comedian.

Published on the 30th anniversary of The Cosby Show, the book reveals the behind-the-scenes story of that groundbreaking sitcom as well as Cosby’s bestselling albums, breakout role on I Spy, and pioneering place in children’s TV. But it also deals with professional setbacks and personal dramas, from an affair that sparked public scandal to the murder of his only son, and the private influence of his wife of fifty years, Camille Cosby.

Whitaker explores the roots of Cosby’s controversial stands on race, as well as “the Cosby effect” that helped pave the way for a black president. For any fan of Bill Cosby’s work, and any student of American television, comedy, or social history, Cosby: His Life and Times is an essential read.
