Hey, book buddies :o) Ready for another wonderful week addicted to books? I know I am! Remember when I told you about HER CONFESSIONAL, part 1, by Rebecca Norinne Caudill? Today I'm going to tell you about the continuation: OUR LITTLE SECRET.
Stardom, secrets, seedy Hollywood politics, and unabashedly sexy romance fill up the pages of this wonderful continuation of Her Confession.
Admittedly, I felt a bit afraid for this couple-in-the-making. Gorgeous actor Cameron and smart, curvy Sarah go from long-term friendship to wild lovemaking in a meteoric short time. Theirs is a path full of challenges and fears, but I really enjoyed how awkwardly but sweetly they try to face the new reality of their relationship.
It's actually quite tough to digest the pressure of the outside world, of society's expectations or the price of fame. When love has to be kept a secret, it takes its toll. And the author does a good job of describing the exhilaration of the good parts, and the tension of the bad parts.
So I felt bad for both of them. They're struggling to make their dreams come true while staying true to their feelings for each other. I liked the way Sarah mulls over the pros and cons, sometimes giving in to insecurities, but mostly believing in what she is building with Cameron. And, of course, I loved, loved the extremely romantic, scorching hot intimacy between them. Wow.
I'm really keen on what is to happen in the next installment. It's going to be tough, yes, but worth it too, I'm sure.
