Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.75 stars--fast paced, intense, intriguing SECRETS AND SINS: RAPHAEL is the third instalment in Naima Simone’s contemporary, adult, erotic Secrets and Sins romance series but can be read as a stand alone. This is Raphael Marcel and Greer Addison’s story. Raphael is the tatted and pierced bad boy and co-owner of Liberty Security Services and Greer has been targeted by an unknown source. The focus of the storyline is Greer’s protection and the building relationship between Greer and Raphael. Following a one night stand with the sexy Raphael, Greer walked into a gruesome murder scene-her ex fiancé was dead and she was the prime suspect. Four months later, Greer broke down and hired Raphael as her personal security guard but many things had changed for Greer in the ensuing months and Raphael soon learns that Greer is pregnant and he is the father. Naima Simone pulls the reader into a storyline of murder, mystery, suspense and romance. The world building continues throughout the series with the inclusion Raphael’s three brothers in arms (or a family of love) including Malachim, Gabriel and Chay. The four best friends are connected by a past mired in abuse and revenge but throughout their lives they have always had one another’s backs and hearts. The relationship between Raphael and Greer is a not quite friends to lovers storyline that is overshadowed by numerous death threats and abduction attempts on both Raphael and Greer. Someone wants Greer dead and the list of possibilities continues to grow-from her ex fiancé’s family to someone close, Raphael can’t deny that someone Greer knows has targeted her for destruction. Greer comes from wealth but her dysfunctional family dynamics finds Greer alone and struggling without emotional or financial support. SECRETS AND SINS: RAPHAEL is a fast paced, intriguing and compelling storyline. The intimacy between our leading couple is sexual, sensual and passionate. As Raphael works to uncover the who and why behind the threats against Greer, Greer will discover that the only people she can depend upon are those that have been there for her from the very start and the man with whom she has fallen in love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raphael Review The third Secrets and Sins book is a riveting romantic suspense that captures the heart. After spending a hot night with a security specialist, Greer finds her fiancé dead and she becomes the main suspect in his murder, but she has no memory of what happened. When Greer shows up on his doorstep pregnant, Raphael is stunned and suspicious, worse she’s the target of a stalker bent on making her pay for a murder she doesn’t recall. The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes and the adrenaline pumping with lots of suspense, action, drama and romance. The author paints vivid images of the events and scenes with well written words and details that capture the imagination and makes the reader feel as if they are right in the middle of the action. The strong compelling characters are easily related to and draw the reader deeper into the story. Spine tingling tension builds throughout the story keeping the reader on the edge of their seat as the danger escalates especially when Greer starts to remember. The attraction and chemistry between burns hot enough to singe the reader and the sex scenes are scorching hot, but the relationship is a little slow to catch up to the passion because of their emotional issues. The reader can’t help but get emotionally caught up in both characters stories as they have both been emotionally betrayed by loved ones and the author brought tears to my eyes in a couple of places, and Greer courage and strength captures the heart and had me wanting to beat her parents upside the head with a baseball bat (she’s better off without them). I was totally engrossed in the story from beginning to end and I found it enjoyable and entertaining with some twists that I sure didn’t see coming and captivating characters that have me wanting to know more. I haven’t read the first two books in this series but I am definitely curious about Gabe and Mal stories now and of course I can’t wait for Chay’s.
