Jace Sloan has it all. He’s smoking hot, a college football star with a storybook family, and he’s never met a woman he couldn’t charm. He’s also never met one who makes him want to be a better man…until he meets Maggie. Now, this self-proclaimed geek with wild red hair and the greenest eyes he’s ever seen has him thinking all kinds of crazy thoughts. Like settling down and being a one-woman man.

Maggie Fielding is anything but Jace’s type. For starters, her IQ is bigger than her chest size. But Jace is panty melting hot, and she’s having a hard time remembering that he’s bad news. If only she could stop telling him her secrets, because her answers to his questions just might have both of them falling in love for the first time.

Tell Me a Secret starts as a typical New Adult story with typical NA characters. She’s a virgin, shy, geek, insecure. He’s a player, super-hot, confident. But in the second part it turns into contemporary romance. This was a nice surprise for me, because the author allowed a peek into what happens once that couple is married.

Writing in this story is simplistic; sentences are short as well as dialogues. There are no large and detailed descriptions, so the pace of the story is pretty fast, which is a plus. Beside this and the twist there are other things I liked about this story. I liked the interaction between hero and heroine and how they slowly fall in love, and how that love changes them. I loved the second part of the story, where heroine showed great initiative, and took the matter into own her hands.

But there were also things I didn’t like. The characters:  if they are real people I wouldn’t like to hang out with them. The heroine is too insecure for no reason, and co-dependent on the hero. The hero is too stubborn and too alpha for my taste. Although they are not my type of the people it is good that they are not perfect. The writer made a great thing showing to the readers their weaknesses and that way she makes them human.

In spite of these issues, Tell Me a Secret is worth reading, especially if you are a fan of this genre and you are looking for a story with a twist.

Tell Me a Secret is not the best New Adult book that I read, but it is worth reading, especially if you are a fan of this genre and you are looking for a story with a twist.
