If you’ve enjoyed the Inside Out series: If I Were You, Being Me, and Revealing Us, then you’ll enjoy His Secrets, which is Chris Merit’s POV.
This series is intriguing, suspenseful, hot, sexy, romantic and keeps me guessing. And I just can’t get enough! This novella reveals more of Chris to Sarah and to us, the readers. The vulnerability, the fears, and the desire to hide when the going gets tough are what Chris and Sarah face as their time together is interrupted by someone from Chris’ past. Sarah refuses to be left out, and Chris is forced to allow her to see what he feels most guilty about and hopes that their love will survive it. The questions I had were: Is Amber acting out or manipulating Chris? Is he helping or enabling her out of guilt? The epilogue had me thinking, “I need more!” That’s a great way to end.
“But her family’s death wasn’t your fault any more than your mother’s dying in a car accident was, Chris. You were mugged and you tried to save them. And the boy you shot–”
“Was a killer. I know, and I’d pull the trigger again if I had to do it over. But that doesn’t keep the images of his body or those of Amber’s family, from haunting me, nor does it stop my guilt over leading Amber to the whip.” I hesitate. “And thinking about her seeking the whip for relief makes me want the whip. …”
The novella was just long enough to whet my appetite and keep my interest in the series strong.
This is not a standalone story. You need to read the three full novels in order to understand what is going on. I received an ARC (advanced reader copy) in exchange for an honest review and blog post.
Here is the current reading order for this terrific Inside Out series, that will turn you inside out with its unexpected twists and turns and the very hot book boyfriends: Chris Merit and Mark Compton.
