Secrets, Lies and Vegas By: Pamela L. Todd ** Review By Amy

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

* Disclaimer * - I received this book from Totally Bound Publishing in return for a fair and honest review.

One weekend in Vegas leaves Marley a different person, inside and out. She experiences true pleasure, happiness, and to see how it feels when a man shows a woman how she deserves to be treated. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Fortunately for Marley, unfortunately for Theo, this is not the case this time. It just so happens that Blake and Theo are best friends. Could Marley’s life get any more twisted and complicated? Could Marley give in to her secret pleasure and find happiness? Will every man that she loves break her just a little more?
This was a fun, flirty, sexy read. The story line kept you wanting more, and the suspense of Marley’s life kept you on the edge of your seat. I found myself feeling excitement for Marley at times when she was free and happy. My heart broke for her during a few scenes in the book also. This author did a great job bring out different emotions throughout the story. The story line flowed well and, even during the times with the different characters and when their interactions blended with other characters, it was easy to follow as to which character was speaking without the chapter being labeled, or even needing a chapter dedicated to each character. The romance written was sweet and the passion was raw.  The way that the author described these scenes really made me feel the raw unbridled passion they held for each other in an emotional way.
I have one complaint about this story and that it involves cheating. Normally I am not a fan of books that involve cheating. This book, however, kept me going back and forth as to whether I should enjoy it. The premise behind the cheating was a bit skewered and IF I ever could say cheating was OK, this would be it. However, I still struggle even saying that. This is the only reason it has four stars. Had I realized that this was going to occur during the book I might not have read the story. So I am glad I did read the story and continued reading once I figured it out.

Genre: Romance, Contemporary Romance, Fiction

Ages: 18+

Rating: 4/5

Thanks & Happy Reading!
