I had seen L. Marie Adeline’s S.E.C.R.E.T on advertisements for the past year around Toronto and didn’t quite know what kind of book it was. However, when I downloaded it to my iPad, I quickly found out.
A mere shadow in the success of the 50 Shades trilogy, the only “secret” is that this book holds is that it isn’t great. While the author is arguably a better writer than E.L. James in terms of description and flow (again, not hard to be), Adeline lacks the skill of writing a genuine image of lust that 50 Shades paints for it’s readers.
The story is about a secret society run by women who seek to help other women. The main protagonist is a divorcee with no aspirations of finding her own man and fulfilling her own fantasies. Once the S.E.C.R.E.T. society gets a hold of her though, they take her on a journey that will change her life forever,
If you are looking for a quick, mindless read, by all means go ahead. But I don’t recommend it.
