The truth is never as painful as discovering a lie.
It has been three months from that terrible day that ripped her heart out and trampled it to the ground. Devastated and heartbroken, Julia must find a way to move on with her life. But how? He gave her everything and took everything from her. Her first kiss. Her dream. Her light. Her soul. Her heart – all with His Secret – a double life.
A new life waits for Julia in Paris – and so does new love. Luke McCarthy finds Julia at an airport on the day she is leaving for Paris and starting her life over. He is everything that reminds her of Jonas, so much to the fact – it’s uncanny.
“Ready to start your new life?”
Just before taking his arm and stepping onto that plane, the mystery surrounding Jonas is unveiled before her, while watching a live news press conference on the TV at the airport. However, Julia has a secret of her own now – and he is never going to find out.
Julia may have found a new life – but the past will always find you.
“I meant what I said. My focus is back to my previous interest. I will not stop until I have what I want, you.”
First Line: “All things must die.”
Narrator Review (Tracy):
Oh Tracy. I just adore this woman’s voice. She is versatile, innocent, an embodies Julia so perfectly in this book. The most captivating part of her narration is when Julia is conflicted. Tracy SLAYED. IT.
Tracy is unforgettable in the way she reads prose. She breathes a different kind of life into these characters I love, and I know that if I see her name on an audiobook, Ima insta-buy it.
(From His Secret)
Julia Ellis is running away. When the man she loved broke her heart, she decided there was no better time to pursue her culinary dreams than the present. As she boards her plane for Paris, she finally learns the whole truth about Jonas Fairbanks just in time to meet Luke McCarthy, a man who reminds her of Jonas more than she’d care to admit…
Determined to leave her broken past behind, she throws herself into a relationship with Luke. Was that smart? Umm…I dunna ken because I really love Jonas. So, -2 points for Julia, +1 for Jonas at this point.
“It’s been twenty minutes since Luke boarded the plane. So, I grab my phone from out of my purse and start to open Jonas’s message, when my section is called to board.”
Before long, though, she has her own secret to carry. She’s pregnant. 😱
Everything spins out of control around her, but Julia is certain of one thing: Jonas can never know.
But I mean…he’s going to know, right? Unless she totally intends on never seeing him again…but I don’t think she can do that. Out of necessity, Julia accepts Luke’s offer to live with him in Paris, driving their romance quickly along. Just as her life seems to settle for a moment, everything comes crashing around her once more when Jonas arrives on her doorstep. As fast as she runs from her past, she can’t seem to get away.
“…are we in a place in our lives where we can be okay with that? Can we handle and deal with it?”
Her Secret is #2 in The Secret series. Gina Jones knows how to cause tension between lovers! But really, what would you do if you were in Julia’s shoes? Pregnant and in love (with possibly two men). Luckily we don’t have to decide because we can live vicariously through Julia in this whirlwind romance.
