Reviews of Secrets and Deceptions by Lorelei Confer

Carla reviewed on Oct. 27, 2016

This story is the real deal when it comes to the saying "page turner"!
Secrets and deceptions is an excellent source of thrill and suspense! Lovers Avri and Dillon reunite after fours years of separation. Their love for one another is quickly rekindled, (Kind of like a slap in the face, really. The reunion, itself, was suspenseful and brought on several questions that would later be answered.) but at what cost? What's real? What's a lie? Do they even know each other, anymore?
Both have secrets they're keeping from one another, but neither can hold onto them for long. Eventually, the truth is gonna come out.
I thought the concept and play out of this story was very realistic. People have secrets and as time goes on, those secrets/happenings change people. I'm glad a writer explored the affects lies can have on a relationship, romantic or otherwise. It creates uncertainties, as well as misunderstandings.
It's clear Avri and Dillon still love each other deeply, so of course readers want these two darlings to open up and just spill the guts (oops. Spoiler?) already, but the suspense was well played!!
I honestly think this is the fastest I've ever read a novel of this length!
The pacing of this story teeters back and forth from nice, steady, slow builds to fast, adrenaline pumping scenes and developments. There's really a lot going on here what with the past/present plots (and fantasies/night terrors) of two characters on their own as well as together, but it's nicely explored. I never felt lost in the text.
This author does an excellent job of keeping the reader's attention on the book in hand! Because, really, ya gotta know if they're gonna make it!
