The Secret is another rip roaring, emotional ride of a story from the amazing Kate Benson Like all the other books in the series, it takes you on so many twists and turns that you are an emotional mess by the time you finish the last page I don t know about other readers, but this is my favorite kind of book The third book in the series opens up right where the last one left off I am writing this review a bit differently in that I will not be writing a lengthy synopsis I don t want to spoil it for anyone else who hasn t had the opportunity to read this fantastic series The only thing I will mention is Sophie and Chase will have to fight like they have never had to fight before if their relationship is going to survive.One of the aspects of this story that struck me and affected me were the characters With the emotional upheaval that occurs at the end of the last book and the beginning of this one, all the main characters are forever altered by it Therefore, they all go through difficulty and ultimately are change Some characters, like Ana, I got annoyed with at times Yet, I could also understand exactly where she was coming from Benson has always done a fantastic job of exploring each character on deeper levels with each book she writes in the series However, with this one, she goes into overdrive There are secrets about Sophie that are revealed that make the other characters, and myself, see her in a different light It makes me love her evenWhile I love Chase, who wouldn t after reading these books, Sophie is the driving force behind them She is a young girl that has been knocked down by life it seems at every turn, yet she pulls herself back up and becomes even stronger She appears fragile at first glance, but she is the ultimate survivor and heroine She is a character that will ALWAYS remain with me.After every book I read by Kate Benson, I have to wait sometimes days, sometimes weeks before I can write a review that will do her any kind of justice She writes such emotional books that have left me crying my eyes out, but she keeps bringing me back forNot only that, I think she has nosurprises to bring out, then BANG, she has done it again Then, I am waiting on pins and needles for the next journey she is going to take me on The emotions she brings out in her readers along with the yearning to see what she is going to do next make her an incredibly talented author and one to watch and add to your reading list By the way, Kate, I loved the reference to your other series, The Escort, as the book Chase reads to Sophie Nice, little hidden gem What a journey Kate takes you on with these five great characters.Sophie s life really sucks at the start of this book She has a lot of feelings to deal with and her past comes back to haunt her.Chase and Sophie happily engaged and Drake and Ana all gets blown to pieces when Jack returns, what a shock for Sophie and Ana.Sophie still loves Jack and Chase but finally the truth comes out and why he went back to the army when she asked him not to.Meeting Sophie s mum, boy was she an evil woman belittling Sophie at every opportunity Thank goodness Chase and Jack stood up to her and sent her packing.Loved the ending and can t wait to find out who it is Another cliffy This Book Contains Mature Content That Is Not Suitable For Readers UnderYears Old Just As Her Life Finally Seems To Be On

Choice Of Her Life New Truths Will Be Revealed, Old Demons Will Resurface, But When Future And Past Collide, Who Will She Trust To Keep Her Secrets I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads This is the third in the Promises Series, and I foolishly thought it was the last, so when it just ended on a cliffhanger, I may have screamed quietly inside You definitely need to read the first two to fully appreciate the story and what a great story it is If you haven t, stop reading and go and get them, because inevitably I will mention stuff you do not yet want to knowI read the first two a number of months ago, but slotted right back into the storyline, as it was strong enough to have remained on my mind all that time I have to say that not many books can do that, I would normally have to reread them to remind myself of the main characters etc The suspense that is maintained throughout the book, had me stopping for breathers And the ending Well clearly there is a lotto come Chase remains my total hero, and Sophie finally seems to get that too The interactions between Drake and Ana continue to entertain, as well as grow as a couple All in all a good book, but now I need Ms Benson to hurry along with the next instalment please This was an awesome incredible story that I could not put down no matter what It is an incredible story that will keep you interested and entertained from beginning to end It has amazing characters that you cannot help but fall in love with and will needof It moves along at a great pace from beginning to end, never leaving you hanging This has to be read, there is no doubt about it Loved it. Received as an ARC in exchange for an honest review from addicted to books and authors This book was incredible I loved the relationship between Chase and Sophia and then wham ex fianc Jack comes back from the dead Sophia was devastated when she thought Jack had died it took her years to be able to open herself up for love and when she meets Chase she knows he is her one and only When Jack returns she finds herself torn and confused she still loves Jack and the secret they share is one she never wants anyone else to know This book was amazing and full of emotion I found myself feeling it all Kate Benson did not disappoint.
