Review: Gloria’s Secret is a very sexy read! But warning it is a cliffhanger! Now under normal circumstances I avoid cliffhangers like the plague but since the second (and final) book is out I made an exception. The chemistry between these two characters is scorching and Nelle doesn’t waste any time burning up the pages! A couple things that bugged me a bit were the name “Gloria’s Secret” for a lingerie company? I kept thinking of Victoria’s secret and it drove me a little nuts, there are tons of similarities between the two companies. Mind you the name really does fit for more than one reason. The other thing that bugged me was the repeated use of the phrase “Get over here, you” Now don’t get me wrong this was really cute the first time but it was a little overused. There are a few references to Fifty Shades of Grey but I wouldn’t call this a BDSM novel, in the words of Jamie “Whatever way you call it, I’m strictly BD without the SM” think Christian Grey without all the emotional issues. Gloria is a super successful business woman with a big secret from her past that causes some major trust issues. She lives in constant fear that her past will someday catch up with her. This first book left off at a very critical moment with lots of loose ends to tie up so I will definitely be picking up Gloria’s Revenge right away!
Rating: 4/5 Diamonds
Review: Gloria’s Revenge is the follow up to Gloria’s secret and concludes the story. This book picks up right where the last one left off and doesn’t waste any time getting right into it. This story was a little bit shorter but was definitely action packed. Filled with more super steamy sex, heartbreak and mystery it kept my attention from start to finish. Gloria comes face to face with her worst fears and has to deal with demons both physical and mental. Everything is wrapped up nicely and it even caps off with a great epilogue that left me smiling. Both of these books are fairly quick reads so I would recommend reading them back to back.
