Secrets and Sins: Raphael (A Secrets and Sins Novel #3) by Naima Simone - Review & Contest



Blurb:
When Greer Addison finds her future husband in bed with another woman, she runs…right into the arms of dark and dangerous Raphael Marcel. Angry and hurt, she throws caution to the wind and spends a hot night with the sexy security specialist. But when her fiancé is found dead, Greer becomes the main suspect of a crime she can’t remember. 

Raphael is stunned and suspicious when Greer shows up on his doorstep claiming she’s carrying his baby. Worse, she’s the target of a stalker bent on making her pay for a murder she doesn’t recall. As Raphael begins to trust Greer, they must race against the clock to uncover a killer. 
Because Greer’s memory is returning...

My review:
This is more than a case of a one night stand between an uptown girl and a boy from the wrong side of the tracks made good.  Someone is stalking her and they are escalating.  Greer runs to Rafe and whether he believes her or not about the baby he will protect her.
This is always a fun trope.  Add in the wonderful mystery and super sexy hero and I’m all in.  I really enjoyed watching Greer grow. She loses some of her naiveté but gains self-assurance.   
Although this is the third in the series it can be read stand alone.  The author gives you what you need to know from the past books and just enough tease to make you want to run out and buy them (Secrets and Sins: Gabriel and Secrets and Sins: Malachim).

Thank you so much for the great review! I, too, have always loved the boy/girl from the wrong side of the tracks and unexpected baby tropes. LOL! Guilty pleasure? Oh yes. So reading your review, 1) warms my heart that I'm not the only one who enjoys them, and 2)makes me do a fist pump because you liked it! Thank you again!! So much!
