It was supposed to be a simple job. Go to the Winston Isles, stand in for my billionaire double for a few weeks.But between the kidnapping attempt and accidentally falling in love with my bodyguard, things have been far from simple.

The good news, at least now the woman I love knows who I really am. The bad news is, no one else knows and someone is still trying to kill me.

I came to the Winston Isles to save my mother’s life, now I’ve got so much more than I bargained for. The trick will be to hold on to my brand new life and not get killed in the process.

 

My review:

This is the conclusion to Bodyguard to the Billionaire and they must be read in order. When Bodyguard ended, Zia and Theo were on a beach with a beaten and unconscious Derrick. Secret picks up in the same spot and continues the story. Zia and the rest of Royal Elite have to discover who is behind Derrick’s kidnapping and the attempted abductions of Theo. Many characters cross over all of the books, and it’s like seeing old friends again. I love that although a particular couple’s book may be finished, their story is not and we get more of their lives in each of the duets in this series.

This was a nice, strong ending to a well written duet. There was a lot going on, sure, but it all tied in and was not confusing. I will note that there was one attempted rape scene that may affect some readers but it was handled very well within the story and was not simply gratuitous violence.

This duet is most definitely worth reading. It is exciting and action packed, with a little bit of romance thrown in but not sappy and annoying. Zia, like the other women in these books, is a badass who can handle herself in almost any situation. Theo is good for her.

Excerpt

Zia…
Liar.

 

Conman.


Duplicitous fuck.

 

As I leaned against the wall of the makeshift medical room we’d set up in the penthouse, I thought about the two versions of the man I had started to fall for. 
Two versions of one of the richest men in the world. One of them was a billionaire, Derrick Arlington. And the other was someone I didn’t know.
 
And currently, one of them was bleeding all over what looked like a massage table.
 
I’d fallen in love with a mirage. None of what I’d felt had been real.
 
As the doctor Royal Elite had on call worked to patch up Derrick, I watched them both. The resemblance was beyond uncanny. They were freaking identical.

 

No. You can tell them apart.

Right now, I could. But without the scruff and long hair, would I be able to?

 
I forced myself to take a closer look. To focus on what was different, what stood out.
 
For starters, Theo, or whoever the hell he was, had broken his nose. There was a slight bump in the ridge. It was barely noticeable, but it distinguished them. That and the eyes, that stormy gray, surrounded by thick lashes. They were the same shape and color, but Arlington’s were a little closer together. Or maybe a little wider. It was hard to tell now as he had a cut above one and it was nearly swollen shut.
 
Heightwise, they looked about the same, but I couldn’t be sure. They weighed about the same. And I only knew that because I’d helped drag Arlington off the beach with Theo, who had mumbled some bullshit about me not finding out that way. And sorry, sorry blah blah blah. If I was being honest, the shock had rendered me deaf and dumb right then.
 
But once the crisis was over, my voice was back, and I had a shit ton to say. Starting with Liar. Conman. Duplicitous fuck.
 
It didn’t matter what form of explanation came out of his mouth. As far as I was concerned, he was full of shit.
