Smart, Sexy and Secretive
By: Tammy Falkner
I'm back in New York, ready to start my brand new life with Logan. Things are still up in the air between us, and it has been three months since I've even talked to him. But there's one thing I'm certain of -- I can't live without him.
I need her like I need air. But now she's back, and her dad and her ex-boyfriend are conspiring to keep us apart. We can do this, though. Can't we? We can make this work? We have to, because I can't imagine my life without her.
It’s no secret, I absofreakin’lutely loved the first book in the Reed Brothers series, Tall, Tatted and Tempting. I met Tammy at the RT Conference in Kansas City and instantly made a book friend. What makes it even better is that she’s an amazing author and has created this series that I devour like chocolate.
Smart, Sexy and Secretive begins where the previous book ends. I’m going to be completely honest, if you are going to love this book as much as I do, you need to go read the first book in this series. Go on, I’ll wait…
Welcome back! Now on to the fabulous review - Logan and Emily are back better than ever in this second installment of the Reed Brothers series. After the events of the previous book, the happy ever after was in doubt. A few months have went by and neither Logan nor Emily have spoken or seen one another. Emily returns to New York to attend school with her parents in tow but her love for Logan hasn’t wavered.
Logan and Emily’s chemistry is still as hot as ever, but in this novel we see how love may not be enough. Emily’s father hates Logan, her mother wants to help but doesn’t know how, and Logan’s brother is still really ill. Add to that wild mixture an ex-boyfriend who won’t go away, a huge financial inequality, and Logan’s inability to hear Emily’s passion in life...music, and you have one of the most emotionally devastating stories I’ve read this year.
Rest assured there is a happily ever after. It may happen after a stay in the hospital (spoiler alert!) but it is oh so good. Logan loves Emily for who she is, whether a wealthy trust fund baby or a homeless runaway guitar player. Emily loves Logan with her entire being and never loses her faith in him despite outside forces trying to pull her away.
Gorgeously written with an emotional rawness that will leave you breathless, Smart, Sexy and Secretive isn’t to be missed. Logan and Emily leave me so happy and yet wanting, no needing more of their story that I can’t wait until the next Reed boy has his book! Utterly lovely, sexy, and smartly written, Tammy Falkner has easily given me one of my favorite book duos of the year.
