Brutal Secret by Laurelin Paige - ARC Review & Release Blitz



Add to Goodreads:

It was supposed to be one night. Now he's obsessed.

When my one-night-stand turns into an all-time-fail, I vow not to tell anyone about the much older hottie who walked out on me mid-deed. (On my twenty-first birthday, no less.)

Too bad I bump into my almost lover at my mother’s wedding a few months later.

That's when I discover he’s none other than Reid Sebastian—my new step cousin and the billionaire son of my step-dad’s rival. Which means he’s my rival, too, obviously.

While I thought he was cruel before, he's become obsessed with torturing me. And because we're family, he's always around.

Now we're playing a brutal game that neither of us can possibly win.

But I have a secret—the more we play the more I want him. Even if it means we both lose everything.

Brutal Secret is a complete standalone forbidden, age-gap, forced proximity romance set in an intriguing world of billionaires, power, and scandal. While it is recommended to read Brutal Billionaire first for best reading experience, it isn’t necessary to thoroughly enjoy the story.

You guys...Laurelin Paige is FUNNY.

I can't lie, I didn't see it coming how funny this book would be or how much dimension would be added to Reid and Lina's story by the things she says (and thinks) and his reactions to her.

Don't get me wrong. The strong characters, the story, the's all there in this one just as you've come to expect from books by this author...but it's funny.

And don't worry...the romance isn't lost in the humor. It's balanced perfectly so both the humor and the characters and the romance all flow perfectly.

I loved it. I laughed. I wanted to know what Lina would think or say next and I wanted to watch Reid learn he could trust her and that it was safe for him to be himself around her.

The story has a lot that happens around it, and while not necessary to understand what's going on in this one, I definitely recommend you read the first of these books as the characters definitely appear and you get to know them in that book as you meet them again in this one.

I read this book quickly. Not because it's short but because I couldn't put it down.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.

About Laurelin:

With millions of books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however.

When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Killing Eve or Letterkenny, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.

She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
