On her best friend’s eighteenth birthday, Amber is the one who’s dreams come true, sort of. There had been tons of chemistry between her and Heather’s brother Elijah but that night they were finally together and Amber learned more about herself and her body than she ever thought possible. However, Heather can’t stand her brother so for the next seven years Amber and Elijah keep their times together a secret. Especially when Amber ventures into the BDSM club with Elijah.

When Amber finally realizes that there’s not going to be a happy ever after with Elijah, she’s determined to put herself out into the dating world. All it takes is one look at Amber with a date for Elijah to realize that he’s not willing to give Amber up. In fact, he’s willing to show her that there is so much more to them as a couple than their Dom/sub relationship. He’s even willing to face his sister’s wrath to be with the woman he’s come to realize he can’t live without.

This second book in the Friends, Men and Secrets series will blow your socks off! The chemistry between Amber and Elijah is a pure treat to read, and it doesn’t hurt to have a cold drink on hand. But there was also so much more to their story. You get a great sense of where they’re both from, what they’ve been thinking and the history that has them at this point in their lives. I also love the relationship between the three friends, and how they really only think they’re keeping secrets but have each others backs no matter what. I had read the first book in this series, and it enhanced the story but wouldn’t have been necessary since all of the stories seem to take place simultaneously. But be warned, these friends and their men draw you in and you’re going to have to read them all, in fact I can hardly wait for the next book!
