They drive each other crazy.

They drive each other crazy. This was my first Freya North, and I quite enjoyed it. Even though I didn't neccessarily like the characters that much (she was a bit wet, and he had questionable morals), I did care enough to want them to have their happy ending. I enjoyed the journey that the female lead went through as she learned to come to terms with her past and her various issues.

I think this is the best Freya North book I've read so far. I couldn't put it down for the first half. The heroine was an attractive character and though I couldn't really identify with her seeming lack of basic common sense in some areas, North's manages to hook you and get you invested in her happy ending. The Hero, Joe, however was the most interesting. His journey from being the aloof commitment-phobe "player" to faithful one-girl-guy was very well done. There were moments which bothered me but which were ultimately realistic (SPOILER ALERT: I'm referring to his continuing with Nathalie even though he'd already begun something with Tess. END SPOILER ALERT) and made the book that much more interesting. The whole thing is very satisfying and this is one of the best contemporary romances/chick-lit books I've read in a while. Though I loved it and couldn't put it down, I have to admit that most people would probably find the second half a bit too long. There was a bit too much emphasis on the bridge metaphor (Joe builds bridges for a living) and there was a bit too much repetition which should have been better edited. That said, this is one of Freya North's best books. Loved it!

An enjoyable, feel-good read. The situation the heroine found herself in was believable, current and jenuinely frightening. The downside was that, at times, I found the characters less than 100% believable. The reaction of the characters needed to be fleshed out more to make me feel they were anything other than wishful thinking by the author.This did spoil what would otherwise be a superior book.

Joe has such a beautiful house, an amazing job which he loves and no commitments as that's the way he has always preferred it. So when he decided that he needed someone to watch over the last thing he was expecting was for the women who he agreed to hire to have a child with her but as soon as he met them he was quite taken back with the beauty and charms of her.

Tess has been running for a while and even though we aren't sure to why that is, we can't help but feel for her as she is a single mother to her daughter Em. When she first turns up at Joe's house she feel's a bit intimidated as the house is huge and she isn't sure if she is going to fit in with it. However sparks seem to be flying for both of them when they first meet but at the same time they both have secrets which they seem to be keeping to themselves.

Whilst Tess and Em are living with Joe in his house, they both seem to get into a routine and seem to be making themselves at home. Joe has slowly started warming up to both of them but whilst he is away on one job he realises that he has feelings for Tess. With both of their feelings developing will they both give into each other or will it be a disaster. How will each of them cope when both of their secrets are revealed. This book will draw you in, I'm glad I had the chance to read it as the writing is truly amazing. I recommend you give this book a try and if you will fall in love with it just like I have.

Secrets was a good choice for a nice summer chick lit read. A sort of soft sweet read, this one didn’t blow me away but I enjoyed it enough to make my way through 485 pages to get to the end.

I think that what I liked most about Secrets was the setting…a small seaside town in England, it’s very essence so unique and different from all the towns around it. I loved Wolf beyond words…easily my favorite character in this tale. If I wasn’t a crazy cat lady…I’d want a dog just like him:) I was also charmed by all of Joe’s talk about bridges and the metaphors woven throughout. Amazing imagery both literally and figuratively.

As with most small town tales, secondary characters add so much to the fabric of this story. I loved the realistic friendships that this one portrayed both between female friends and also the friendship that developed between Tess and Seb. To be honest a small part of me was actually rooting for Seb all along….

Which leads me to the things that I didn’t like so much. Joe. I am so torn about Joe…parts of him, I fell in love with right along side Tess, but even larger parts completely turned me off. Maybe it is just that Freya North really got into the male mind and it’s not a place I enjoy! lol But I found that I could not tolerate Joe’s mindset in so many instances…it just completely turned me off to the point that I had to ignore huge parts of him to actually enjoy the “Happy Ending.”

Also, this is a long one and I’ll be honest…I didn’t really feel as if all of that length was needed. The pacing was the second of my two main concerns with this read. I think this one could have been pared down and it would have made for a much more enjoyable read.

All in all this was a fair experience, I don’t think I would necessarily recommend this book, but I might try another of the author’s offerings in the future.
