“Don’t play the victim to circumstances you created” – Karma
Jonas and Julia have finally got it right. They are to marry in less than 24 hours. Their love and passion for one another have survived secrets, lies, and omissions. Now the parents of twins, life has connected them forever. Until now.
On the eve of their wedding, someone has taken their baby in the middle of the night. It could only be one person. Karma. Jonas had his secrets. Julia had hers. Now, someone from the past has a secret. A secret enemy who knows more than anyone, the crime committed years ago.
Just when all was transparent, and all confessed, tribulation and malice scheme to tear them apart once more. Love has many sides, and Jonas now must walk away from everything he ever wanted – Julia, Sidney, and his babies. It’s the right thing to do if he wants to keep them safe.
Secret Enemy is the last book in The Secret Series trilogy told in Jonas’ point-of-view.
First Line: “By now, you’ve formed a pretty good opinion about me.”
Narrator Review (Aaron):
THIS. MAN. Jeez I can listen to him all day. Do not drive and listen to this audiobook, you will be so distracted. I’m speaking from experience here. Listen to Aaron in a “safe place.” So, in a bubble bath. This is assuming you won’t accidentally drown yourself because your head’s tipping over from swooning.
Aaron is just dangerous no matter where you listen to him. My favorite part about this narration is his timing. He has impeccable comedic timing, even when the text has dark undertones. I can’t help but snort in agreement whenever he says something totally outlandish because it just makes SENSE. Aaron makes it make sense. Does that make sense?
He has a rare talent of grabbing my guts and twisting them in knots. In the most satisfying of ways, of course.
Our hunk of a devil is finally at the end of his transformation! Or so we thought. You know, Julia and Jonas have been though a heck of lot in the last two books…now, you’d think they’d finally get their happy ending, right?
Well, they do. But we’re talking about Gina A. Jones right now, and she knows how to stir up the angst!
In this book, we experience Jonas and his thoughts. We are presented a string of timelines that portray the complex world of Jonas Fairbanks. I didn’t think Gina Jones could outdo herself, but she completely tore me up with this final book of the series. My heart is leaking.
You’d all be proud of me…I read the series in order this time. Believe me, I tried to skip ahead to figure out what happens next, but I’d only end up completely frustrated that I missed out on two pages of text! Like, gag! It’s torture.
This book is saucy, y’all. SAUC-AY. Jonas is laying it all out of the table for us to devour, and I gladly accept this challenge.
“I want to go with you…but don’t make me watch you have sex with someone else…okay?”
Oh how far we’ve come since Book #1.
Does everything happen for a reason? I hope not, because I just want Julia and Jonas to finally be happy together! The deception. The lies. Julia and Jonas navigate dark waters together as demons continue to pull at their relationship. But, of course, Gina Jones does that brilliant thing she always does and pulls the piece together for a killer of an ending.
Secret Enemy is perfectly sculpted.
