Book Review: The Best Kept Secret

Happy Sunday! I have SO many pictures to share from the trip Olivia and I took, so look for that this week. I feel like I took a ton, but also not enough, if that makes sense. Now that I'm back though, that is such a huge stressor off of my plate so I'm slowly trying to get back into things and get organized again. The sunshine and warmer temps where I live help, too. 

Let's talk books, though. 

The Best Kept Secret - Tawna Fenske

Nurse Nyla Franklin knows three things to be true. Taking care of others brings more joy than a basket full of kittens. A triple-fudge sundae can cure just about anything. And no good ever comes from keeping a secret… So when her best friend spills his biggest one ever, Nyla knows she’s not just holding a secret. She’s holding a ticking time bomb.

Mr. Always Does the Right Thing Leo Sayre knows three things to be true. Piloting smokejumpers over burning forests is the best job in the world. His best friend Nyla is the smartest, funniest, and okay, sexiest woman ever. And pain meds are apparently his truth serum. Now his post-surgery confession has everything flipped upside down and turned inside out… including his relationship with Nyla.

Secrets have a way of piling up, and it’s just a matter of time before someone lights a match. Because while the truth can set you free, it can also burn completely out of control… 

I am so late on getting this review up, but I ran out of time before the trip, so here I am, just late as can be. I finished this up the night before our trip so I've been ready to talk about this one for awhile. 

In The Best Kept Secret, we have Nyla and Leo. Nyla is a nurse and she's kind of a control freak and can't lie to save her life. After an experience where lies ruined things, honesty is the best policy, but Nyla also believes everyone should live by this rule, even when keeping a secret is for the best. So when Nyla learns Leo's secret, she is basically bursting with stress over keeping things quiet. Leo is a really standup guy, who always does the right thing and people can always depend on him to be steady on his feet. Eventually though, being best friends isn't enough, so when things turn into more, relationships are tested and new adventures develop. 

I really liked this one, it's a fast read, funny and sexy. Nyla got to be a little annoying at times because as someone who says she thinks about everyone else, she always assumes she knows what is best without ever really asking someone what they want to do. I know that's a common theme in romance books but it always drives me a little nuts, but aside from that, this was a fun read. If you are looking for something light, with humor and no crazy drama, this is an excellent option. 

Thank you to TLC Book Tours and Entangled Publishing for having me on this tour and sending me a copy for review!
