Review: Secrets Unveiled by Jill Patten

In the second and final installment, Jaxon and Courtney are forced into a world of more secrets. Some have been harbored from within, some are unknown, and some are just forming.

When the truth finally does come out, will their fragile love for one another be strong enough to hold, or will the weight of deceit break the string that tethers their hearts together?

"I've had you perched up on a pedestal since the day I met you." -Jaxon

My only disappointment is that this has ended. I absolutely loved Secrets Unveiled. I'll tell you a little story. A couple of months ago when Toxic Secrets came out, I had a reviewer on my blog that had taken the job of reading and reviewing the book for the blog tour.

Well...the day before the blog tour I still wasn't able to get a hold of her so I took it upon myself to read and review the book for my designated day. Best decision ever and I didn't even blink an eye that I only had a day to finish it. I was in love.

I finally got my greedy hands on Secrets Unveiled and dropped everything to read.

Let me tell you when I started this book...I could NOT put it down. The angst...oh my Lord, it made my heart race. I found myself holding my breath at times and then I found myself wanting to choke a ho. No joke.

If you remember in Toxic Secrets all the secrets that got left unanswered as well as Courtney being preggers...well you haven't seen anything yet until you read this one. 


I can't really go into too much detail because I don't want 
to be giving any plot devices away. But Jaxon and Courtney have had one hell of a rude.

You like drama? Good, there's tons in SU.

You like sizzling hot sexual chemistry? Well hell yeah you came to the right book.

Hot boy? Check check check

Did I want to throw my iPad out the window at times? Ummm YES!!!

Good plot? Yup

Characters? Fun and endearing

There are a ton of secrets that come to light and there are some that need to come our but it's never the right time that 
they do. A huge part of the story deals with drug use. I've never had to deal with a drug addict before but I have had it deal with an alcoholic. It can be tough. I totally felt for Jaxon and I could see why he turned to such extremes it get away from reality. After all, we all go through that. Mine is reading. Sure it might be safer, but it's still a way for me to leave this world and go into someone else's. 

"I'm afraid if I tell you,you'll run. I'm not letting you got his time. I'm never letting you go again."

Jaxon and Courtney's story is heartbreaking. Don't go into the story thinking that it's all going to be easy, it's not. My heart felt for them. It's up to you to find out his their story ends.

About this author
Jill Patten was born a Yankee, but raised a southerner. She lives in the small town of Mayberry, North Carolina which was made famous by a popular TV show back in the sixties. (Maybe there will one day be a statue of her at the end of Main Street. Ha! A girl can dream, right?)

Jill has always loved to read, even during reading labs in middle school for reading comprehension. Judy Blume was her first author she hero-worshipped, maturing to revere the works of Stephen King. With all the fantastic authors today, she simply cannot choose a favorite. Her taste is very eclectic and she loves almost all genres. When she's not captivated by her fictional characters, she spends time with her sweet husband and two beautiful children.

Music is her muse. Jill also loves elephants, sarcasm, and anything made with sugar, especially sweet tea. She enjoys all things rude and crude and laughs at stuff she probably shouldn't. She has been accused of being bossy a time or two, but doesn't really see it herself.

All in all, Jill is just a small town girl in this great big world trying to enable your book addiction.

Oh, and if you read her book, please leave her a review - good or bad, she'll love you forever.
