The Best Kept Secret by Tawna Fenske - ARC Review

Nurse Nyla Franklin knows three things to be true. Taking care of others brings more joy than a basket full of kittens. A triple-fudge sundae can cure just about anything. And no good ever comes from keeping a secret… So when her best friend spills his biggest one ever, Nyla knows she’s not just holding a secret. She’s holding a ticking time bomb.

Mr. Always Does the Right Thing Leo Sayre knows three things to be true. Piloting smokejumpers over burning forests is the best job in the world. His best friend Nyla is the smartest, funniest, and okay, sexiest woman ever. And pain meds are apparently his truth serum. Now his post-surgery confession has everything flipped upside down and turned inside out… including his relationship with Nyla.

Secrets have a way of piling up, and it’s just a matter of time before someone lights a match. Because while the truth can set you free, it can also burn completely out of control…

I wasn't sure about this one at the beginning, it seemed like there was a lot going on around Nyla and Leo and that it was going to be one of those titles where the hero and heroine get lost amongst all of the other people in the book.

However, once the others who were in their lives were introduced, it stopped being about the other people and focused well on Nyla and Leo.

I am a sucker for a good forbidden romance, and there is definitely a balance between writing one well, and making it so forbidden that the reader is never really willing to believe the romance would be worth it, no matter the attraction.  This one was well balanced, and I believed the attraction, the reason that the attraction would work, and also that the hurdles were not so great that they wouldn't be willing to pursue something with one another.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.

Buy This Book!
