Secret Tastes Release Day Blast: Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone! I have a stop on the release day blast for Secret Tastes. I have a review of book 3 and 4 for you all and a giveaway.

Secret Tastes
The Secret Dreams Series Book #4
By: Miranda P. Charles

Secret Tastes (Secret Dreams Contemporary Romance 4)

Samantha Lane wanted to resign from her father's accounting practice and move to another state to follow her dream of establishing a catering business. But she didn't want to break her parents' hearts. When her cousin jokingly suggested to tell them that a man was the reason behind her decision, she found the perfect excuse to give her hopeless romantic folks.

Adam Craig didn't mind playing the role of Sam's fake boyfriend. She was a friend in need and he was a helpful guy. Besides, he was desperate to show a clingy ex that they were truly over, and Sam acting as his girlfriend was the perfect solution.

When their pretense became all too real, a spanner in the works put their future together in jeopardy. How could Sam trust Adam when she had proof he wasn't ready to move on? And how could Adam convince Sam of his feelings when she was intent on moving away from him?

My Review
Sam has her own dreams and being part of her father's accounting firm isn't it. She wants to have a job in her passion which is cooking. The only way to do so is to tell her parents she is moving because she has a boyfriend. Adam doesn't care at all to be her fake boyfriend. They are friends and he needs a fake girlfriend as well. His ex still hasn't got the message he has moved on and Sam may help him to get her to understand. They both end up with feelings for each other but Adam's ex rears her head to drive them apart.

I really enjoyed this book as Sam really learns to let go and go after her dreams. Adam doesn't expect to fall for Sam but he does. She is the opposite of what is other girlfriend's have been. They both are wonderful characters. If I have to say anything bad it would be that Adam is to trusting and really should have pushed even harder to his ex things were over. Sandy is a horrible person who just won't take a hint. Trust is a big issue in this book as a misunderstanding threatens to tear Sam and Adam apart. This book has all the characters I have come to know and I liked seeing them again. This book is hot but still has a great plot. I hate to say goodbye to these characters but did love how it ended.

4 out of 5 Stars

This is a stand-alone novel that would give you enjoyment on its own. However, to enhance your experience of this series, the author recommends reading them in order.

Secret Designs is the final book from the steamy and sweet Secret Dreams Contemporary Romance series.
Book 1: Secret Words (Jasmine Allen and Kane Summers)
Book 2: Secret Designs (Ari Mitchell and Dylan Summers)
Book 3: Secret Moves (Kristen McCann and Trey Andrews)

My Review
Kris wants to have a fling on vacation. She isn't interested in anything long term. That puts Trey out of the pictures as she has a.crush on him to begin with. She ask for his help finding a good guy to have a fling with. Trey doesn't do relationships but he doesn't want Kris being involved with another man. He convinces her she should have a fling with him. A short fling may just be to short for these two.

While I didn't feel a.connection to these two characters like I did the others in this series it is still a good story. Kris is wanted to move but is afraid her feelings for Trey will get in the way if she does. She is willing to walk away from her dream job to have space from him when something causes their fling to end. Trey breaks his rules for Kris and is afraid when he begins to really feel for each other. He acts like a moron at one point. They both have to learn in some ways to grow up and let.each know how.they feel. This is a steamy story that many will enjoy.

Author Info
Ever since I was a young teenager, I have loved reading romance novels. My auntie used to send me boxes of her books and I would devour them one after another.

Every so often, I would read a mystery or a suspense or a paranormal novel as I love those genres too. But romance is still my favourite. :)

For many years, I wrote technical and non-fiction materials for professional use and had only dreamt about writing a novel. Then, one day, after a period of binge-reading sexy romances, I decided to sit in front of my computer and start writing my first fiction book. The result? My debut novel Will To Love, the first in the hot and sexy Lifestyle by Design series. After that, I knew that I would love to tell more beautiful love stories through my books.

I live in Sydney, Australia with my amazing husband who lovingly cheers me on in my journey as a novelist.
