They say the best way to get over a broken heart is a random hook-up. So my new BFF is dragging me to a bar. All I have to do is wear a slutty dress, choose a dude, and do the deed, right? The thing is, this isn't me. I'm the good girl -- the one who has sex for love. But, since the love of my life is shacked up with someone else, I guess it's time to move on.
One night, one time. That's all. I'll have a clean slate.
A guy with a sketch pad, sitting alone, catches my eye. I'm a sucker for the artistic type with dark hair and bright blue eyes. Soon we're in his hotel room doing things I've never done. His smoldering body, perfectly toned with hot skin and a firm touch, has my mind reeling with the things to come. We're both naked and glistening with sweat, breathless.
And then he darts, right before doing the deed, abandoning me in his room. He doesn't return.
A week later I see him again, and realize that he wasn't just a random guy. My heart clenches at the massive mistake, and I still don't grasp the extent of it. I should have run and never looked back.
I was really sad going into Secrets & Lies. After 25 Ferro books, I wasn’t happy to be going into the then last of the released Ferro books.
What I both love and hate about Secrets & Lies is that it’s very different from the other Ferro books. There are multiple guys that Kerry meets over the course of the book, but none of them is obviously a Ferro or even has the name of any of the Ferros we already know of. It’s kind of weird.
However, so far, I really liked the story. I found Kerry to be amusing and relatable. The friend she makes, Beth, is great and hilarious, especially when interacting with her brothers. And there’s just something about the first guy she meets (in an awkward situation) that is really appealing. I can’t wait to read more!
