No Judgments. No limits. No shame.
Cassie Robichaud’s life is filled with regret and loneliness after the sudden death of her husband. She waits tables at the rundown Café Rose in New Orleans, and every night she heads home to her solitary one-bedroom apartment. But when she discovers a notebook left behind by a mysterious woman at the café, Cassie’s world is forever changed. The notebook’s stunningly explicit confessions shock and fascinate Cassie, and eventually lead her to S∙E∙C∙R∙E∙T, an underground society dedicated to helping women realize their wildest, most intimate sexual fantasies. Cassie soon immerses herself in an electrifying journey through a series of ten rapturous fantasies with gorgeous men who awaken and satisfy her like never before. As she is set free from her inhibitions, she discovers a new confidence that transforms her, giving her the courage to live passionately. Equal parts enticing, liberating and emotionally powerful, S∙E∙C∙R∙E∙T is a world where fantasy becomes reality.
This is an intriguing read. How often do you hear of women in their 30's or 40's who seem to have lost that spark? They have been divorced, don't feel sexy, low confidence, the list goes on. The S.E.C.R.E.T society aims to give these women back what they may have lost or never had in the first place.
Cassie is the perfect candidate for the program only she doesn't know it. The way these women select their candidates is not at all what you would think. It is not based on money or how much they can bring to the table, but by how much they truly need their awakening.
Cassie's journey is an eye-opening one. Step by Step we are with her. I'm not going to lie, there were times when I wanted Cassie to just leave the program and grab on to one of the many male specimen she interacted with, but the way the story unfolded was quite perfect in the end. Except for, well the abrupt end. You think you are getting a nice little bow on top and then bamm. What would it be without a cliffhanger huh? This is to be a series, and I honestly think it could have ended with just the one book, but now that the twist has happened I am very excited to see what is in store for us next!
