One wonderful night, one huge secret to keep, poignant and steamy second chance romance
Reviewed in the United States on March 26, 2020
Sereno Moore, 21yo virgin on St. Patrick’s Day is serving a bunch of rich kids when one of them asks her what she was going to do after she got off work. She’s surprised but in her straight forward way says she is going for a Pub crawl with her friends. He says he’ll meet her later. She’s stunned to see the handsome guy from her restaurant has actually shown up. Devin Roarke is so tired of being with his privileged friends. He wants something real and the girl Serena looked like she was “real.” They had a great time together, talked, laughed and finally she lets 23yo Devin relieve her of her V card. The following week they are together as much as possible. He invites her to go off with him to Europe where he has family business to attend. What happens next is appalling. I guarantee you will be furious with a certain person too.
What happens when they meet up five years later? She’s holding herself back from a relationship with Devin. Why? Oh. My. Word. When the truths come out, something is going to fly! Her father says it best, “the two of you have too many secrets. If you can’t tell him about Andrew and he can’t introduce you to his parents, what sort of life can you have?”
Truly loved this story. My only critique is that I think Ms. Williams stretched out the secret about Andrew a little too long. All this irritated me because it showed Serena’s lack of trust of Devin. If she couldn’t trust his reaction, how could that be a sound foundation for a relationship. Other than that I truly enjoyed this story. I volunteered to review an ARC through Booksprout and I highly recommend it for lovers of steamy second chance romance.
