A brazen bargain!
Former military pilot Mia Brandt is on a four-day cruise that can only be described as bachelorette hell. Giggling girls, rhinestone-studded bikini bottoms (ugh), slushy margaritas…and Mia missing the cruise ship's departure at the last port. Now she's stranded on the same island as Tag Johnson—a Navy rescue swimmer who's all ripped abs and sexy hotness…and Mia's unforgettable one-nighter from four years ago!
Tag definitely remembers Mia. Remembers her touch, the searing heat of their chemistry…and how she pulled rank on him in bed. The sexual attraction between them is as fierce as it ever was. But when Tag blurts out that they're engaged—a tiny little lie—their naughty, no-strings secret arrangement is out! And now an even bigger secret has taken its place…
It's no doubt when I pick up these lovely books, I'm almost always hooked from the beginning. Give me a fake engagement and, well, you know me, I'm gonna be going absolutely nuts. And this one was a really sweet book!
Mia and Tag have a teeny bit of a rocky start when they run into each other after all these years. When Tag finds Mia stranded on the beach, he brings her back to his place and they rekindle what they had that one night. One thing leads to another and soon there's a little fibbing about the two of them being engaged. Mia goes along with it to help Tag out, but he seems to feel like it could be something more.
Wicked Secrets was a wickedly sweet book. Both Mia and Tag are strong people, but they've been through a lot since they first met, including an incident that happened when Mia was deployed. I loved how Anne Marsh made these characters real--Mia with her PTSD and Tag with his soft spot for animals. I'm absolutely picking up more from this series!
