Rêveur Review: Secret trilogy by L. Marie Adeline

The Books:

The Blurb for S.E.C.R.E.T.

Cassie Robichaud’s life is filled with regret and loneliness after the sudden death of her husband. She waits tables at the rundown Café Rose in New Orleans, and every night she heads home to her solitary one-bedroom apartment. But when she discovers a notebook left behind by a mysterious woman at the café, Cassie’s world is forever changed.

The notebook’s stunningly explicit confessions shock and fascinate Cassie, and eventually lead her to S∙E∙C∙R∙E∙T, an underground society dedicated to helping women realize their wildest, most intimate sexual fantasies. Cassie soon immerses herself in an electrifying journey through a series of ten rapturous fantasies with gorgeous men who awaken and satisfy her like never before. As she is set free from her inhibitions, she discovers a new confidence that transforms her, giving her the courage to live passionately. Equal parts enticing, liberating and emotionally powerful, S∙E∙C∙R∙E∙T is a world where fantasy becomes reality.

The Review:

My blurb will be for just the 1st book, as the other two have spoilers.

Completed 8/4
288 page ebook

S.E.C.R.E.T. is a very cute and light hearted Erotica. While there are sex scenes, they are not overly graphic, at least not in my opinion. NONE of the books are BDSM, thought the 2nd one is shelved as such.

This series is about women taking control of their sexuality in a safe way. S.E.C.R.E.T. is an organization that sets up fantasies, making sure the women are taken care of in every way, either with fantasies of their own choosing or with ones the are thought up for them.

Cassie is struggling after the death of her husband, and of her marriage, as it had been a loveless one. She finds the journal of all sorts of naughty things and she's interested but too shy to approach the lady about it. Fortunately for her, S.E.C.R.E.T. has already had their eyes on her, and they invite her to take the chance on reclaiming her sexuality.

The book is well written and very enjoyable. The fantasies are fun and sexy. My ONLY issue with this book is the ending. The author (as too many authors do lately) created drama just for the sake of making drama. It gave me a "really?!" moment and I didn't like it at all. Other than that, solid good start.

As for the other two books, I'll briefly say that the 2nd one was just as enjoyable. Dauphanie is a new recruit in this one, but Cassie still is involved. In this book we get alternating chapters between the two women, which isn't my favorite method of storytelling, but it worked for this one. The only downside with this one, was once again the end. Drama was created that was really not needed. The books are strong enough on their own that the story stands well without the created drama for "oh shit" moments.

For the 3rd, I didn't like it as much. The drama made one character a jerk, then I felt that Cassie was a bit of a moron in this one. There was something I figured out in the first book that she didn't know until the end of the last book. She has to be blind not to see it, so I was shaking my head at that. Solange was the other character in this one, and I didn't like her as much as Cassie or Dauphanie. While I didn't like it as much, it was still a solid ending to a really enjoyable series.
