*Book Review & Giveaway Info* S*E*C*R*E*T BY L. Marie Adeline *TLC Book Tours*

   Paperback: 288 pages
   Publisher: Broadway (February 5, 2013)

In S.E.C.R.E.T there are…

No Judgments. No limits. No shame.
Cassie Robichaud’s life is filled with regret and loneliness after the 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 erotic fantasy becomes reality.

About L. Marie Adeline

I obtained the above informtion from TLC Book Tours website

I received this book for my honest thoughts... So, let's get to my review ~ shall we!

This is the first story I have read by Ms. Adeline and I believe this is the first book she has written. Her writing style is new to me... This story really stuck out with me because of its location - New Orleans. My hometown. Ms. Adeline does a really good job at describing the location and captured the atmosphere. She captured the true essence of the characters environment.

Cassie is a woman who's life is.... nothing. If her life was a color - it would probably be brown. Boring,  dull... Monotonous. She is used of her life being nothing, but deep down inside, she craves for the life of the unknown, the exciting, the vibrant, the life that others have. She wants to be desired, to be wanted, to be touched, caresses... She wants to turn heads and be confident in herself. But she fears the unknown... she fears the rejection... she almost feels the fear of life. But she knows that in order to move on and move ahead in life, you must be willing to try....

Alongs comes S.E.C.R.E.T. - a secret world of women who help other women embrace life and love and passion.

The question is can Cassie accept what S.E.C.R.E.T is offering her... A chance of a lifetime.

The story was really good and descriptive. I enjoyed the story. This story reminds me of a "freeing the soul," kinda story. About embracing what you - as a woman - have to give the world. Embracing the woman within and embracing life.
