    Romantic Suspense (NA)

    Deadly Secret by Tara Thomas Sons of Broad Book #2 I had hopes that book two would be more to my taste than the first book in this series but came away feeling, once again, that the story was not for me and that perhaps it would appeal more to a NA reader or someone who has not read as many books as I have. I found the plot in need of more substance and depth. The H/h romance left me wondering why they were together at all since they didn’t seem to have much of a backstory or connection. The villain was evil but he, too, needed more information to be shared about him. All in all I found the story simplistic, issues were dealt with too easily, times I was to be worried I wasn’t and the only thing I came away with was wanting to know more about Jade…and perhaps the villain known as The Gentleman. Since I am interested in finding out about these two people I have given the book a bit higher rating than I first thought I would. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars

    The suspense is ramping up!

    3.5 stars. Deadly Secret is book 2 in the Sons of Broad series and you really need to read them in order so that you'll understand everything that is going on. The illusive Gentleman is still targeting the Benedict brothers and the women they love. This time around he is after Bea and Knox. We first met Bea briefly in the novellas that accompany this series and revolved around her brother, Brent. Then again in book 1, Darkest Night, when she was found beaten almost to death on the steps of Benedict House. Knox Benedict ran to her side, and it became obvious that there was some type of relationship happening between them. Jade, the mysterious girl who Tilly and Keaton ran into at the homeless shelter, and then helped Keaton at the end of book 1, features prominently in this book. What exactly is her connection to the Benedict brothers? Why has she reached out to Bea and asked for her help? Will she be able to stay one step ahead of The Gentleman, and his henchman, Tom, who has been placed on security detail for Bea? I like the twists and turns that take place in this book. I loved seeing the background story on how Bea and Know met and got together. It was great seeing Tilly and Keaton, and Alyssa and Kipling as well as Lena, the faithful housekeeper. Just like in the novellas and book 1, I was anxious to find any clue or hint as to who this man is, The Gentleman, and what exactly his plan is for this group of people. I felt plenty frustrated with Bea, and really the whole family this go around. Even after Jade gives Bea and the family clues to certain things, and warnings about Tom, they still act like everything is hunky dory and no one is in danger. Even after notes are left, Bea's father's house is torched, lives are threatened. It just didn't ring as realistic to me that this group of people who are supposedly very intelligent, could remain so lackadaisical about everything that was going on. I almost got to a point that the only one I cared to know what was going to happen to them was Jade. There is no cliffhanger at the end, which was good, we get a happily ever after for now, with one piece of bombshell information, but the reader is already aware of what it is so it's not something that will make you desperate to get your hands on the last book. That book will revolved around the last Benedict brother, Kipling, and Alyssa Adams, the steadfast police woman who has been on the case from day one. I am mostly intrigued to find out Jade's backstory and how she ever got involved with The Gentleman. What does he have to do with the Benedict family, and why does he want to destroy them and their women so badly? Will we ever find out what part Tilly's father played in this whole thing? Still lots of things unanswered, so hopefully the last book, Broken Promise which releases in June will provide us those answers. I have really been enjoying this series. I feel some things need to really be tightened up along the way, and that last book has really got to be a doozy to provide the reader all the answers to the huge list of questions stacking up. It's been a fun ride so far! NetGalley and St. Martin's Press provided me an advance copy of the book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    Deadly Secret

    The second Sons of Broad book is a gripping story that has readers cheering for the good guys and hanging on to the edge of their seat in anticipation of what happens next. Each of the stories in this series is a standalone romance but get the most enjoyment of the series the books should be read in sequence due to the fact that the overall plot takes place throughout and each book reveals a little more information as each couple faces dangers and tries to find out who the enemy is and what they want. This ensures that readers keep coming back for more because the characters are strong and compelling and the readers can easily relate to them while the stories are full of suspense building thrills and surprising twists that keep readers guessing. So far, I have really gotten caught up in the whole spine tingling mystery of the story as the bad guy must have one devious mind and must have spent a long time plotting the downfall of the brothers. Knox and Bea’s story is has lots of emotional turbulence and their relationship is a rocky slope full of tension and sizzling attraction that keeps pulling them together. This keeps readers in suspense as they wonder which way their relationship just must go. Several astonishing facts are discovered proveing that secrets can be deadly which keeps everyone on pins and needles. Also, there was never a dull moment as the bad guys continue their attacks throughout the story as well. Broken Promises will be released in June and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
