Book review - Seduced in Secret by Shiloh Walker - 3 stars

Seduced in Secret by Shiloh Walker
Erotic romance 
3/5 stars 


Best laid plans…are meant to be broken.

Life laid out, Tessa had everything set. Engaged to marry the perfect man, a rich, great-looking doctor, she was content with her life, or so she thought. Then the gift arrived. Delivered to her office on Valentine’s Day, it was filled with handcuffs, sexy little toys and a suggestive little card.

It wasn’t from her fiancé, either.

When the emails and the phone started coming, she should have been able to brush them off, except the man said something that left her uneasy…and not because he scared her, but because he was right. Your fiancé will never make you happy, Tessa.

Confused, she starts looking at her fiancé, her life…and other things…in a whole new light. One of the things she finds herself considering is her best friend and neighbor, Caleb. He’s always been there. Even when he spent years in the Navy, Caleb was the one she could count on and now isn’t any different. He’s there to listen when she needs an ear and he’s got nice, strong shoulders when she needs one to lean on.

It doesn’t her long to realize that one thing is certain—her fiancé can’t make her happy. But now she doesn’t know whether she wants to take a chance on her sexy secret admirer…or Caleb, the man who’s been there waiting for her all along.

It includes a short bonus story called Don't Walk Away.

Seduced in Secret was previously published as Whipped Cream and Handcuffs. It has been extensively rewritten, revised and expanded.


Seduced In Secret is a short novella that I did enjoy, but it didn't completely blow me away. It's well written, but it took me a while to connect with the characters, especially the hero.  It is fairly short, so there wasn't much opportunity for character development, which is probably why I felt I didn't really know them.

The storyline itself is fun and interesting, it is also very sexy. I'm not going to say too much about the storyline though, as I'm finding it hard not to drop spoilers. Tessa has been receiving mysterious gifts, letters and phone calls from a secret admirer, and they are making her see that her boyfriend is not the one for her. Just as she's falling for her secret admirer she realises that her best friend, Caleb, may also be ideal for her. Caleb has had strong feelings for Tessa for years, but she has him firmly in the friend zone - can he make her see that he's her ideal man?

This is short, sweet and sexy story that is a nice easy read. Seduced in Secret gets three out of five stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review
