SUMMARY
What's Her Secret?

'What's Her Secret?' — Each book in this imprint delves into the secret life of a different compelling character. Immerse yourself completely. We won't tell!


Now You See Me by Pamela L. Todd

Invisible. A ghost. No one sees her. No one knows her. Until him.

For the last seven years, Jo Carpenter has been a ghost in her own life. No friends. No permanent address. No long-term job. And that is exactly the way she wants it… Until a typing error lands her on Nate Harding's doorstep in the city of Edinburgh, answering his ad for a roommate.

Nate and his luxury house are a different world for Jo. Tall, rugged and with a voice that seems hardwired to Jo's sex drive, Nate is a distraction Jo can't afford, but neither seems able to fight the growing tension between them. Nate's touch brings Jo back to life and every encounter leaves her craving more. As they grow closer and intimacy creeps its way around them, Nate knows there are things Jo isn't telling him. What he doesn't realize is the less he knows about Jo and her past, the safer he is.

For years Jo has been careful—hasn't let her guard down, got too comfortable or let anyone get close enough to see the person beneath her protective armor. Soon it isn't just Nate that Jo has fallen for—it's his whole family, from his adorable niece to his eccentric sister, Suze, who quickly becomes the best friend Jo has ever had. Against her better judgment, Jo let's herself believe she can have a normal life. In Nate's arms she forgets the things that haunt her, and the reasons she should leave that innocent family become all the reasons she can't.

Hot sex, intense drama, humor and redemption make up NOW YOU SEE ME, and I couldn't get enough!

Nate Harding needs a roommate. Jo Carpenter needs a room. When she sees his ad in a local publication for a ridiculously cheap amount, Jo takes the chance and meets the sexiest man she's ever seen. She and Nate are like ships passing in the wind, but that doesn't stop the crazy attraction from taking hold of them both, and soon they find it impossible to keep their hands off of one another. To make matters worse, Jo genuinely likes him…and his crazy sister and bubbly niece. But Jo knows better than to get involved with anyone, and she would never want to put the three of them in danger from the man who'll never stop searching for her. But there comes a point where she CAN'T walk away from the man, the family, she's fallen in love with. And it could cost them all dearly.

I just love Ms. Todd's work! She's such a talented writer, making the reader feel as if they are besties with the characters in her books. Jo has some seriously big secrets and has been on the run from a pretty dangerous man. Her character is independent and used to a solitary existence, but when she falls in with Nate and his gregarious sister Suze and niece Tilly, life just clicks for her. Nate is a bit of an arrogant, attitudinal man whore in the beginning, but the two of them have delicious chemistry that made me salivate.

But it wasn't just hottie hottie hot sex, it was also the tension and, surprisingly, the humor, that did me in. Witness this little nugget of fun while Jo and Nate were discussing her job:

"But if you decide you don't want to, my offer still stands."

I elbowed him, laughing. "The offer where I come to work with you every day, sit on your desk in a short skirt with no knickers and feed you cake, you mean? Let's call that plan B, shall we?"

Nate huffed. "Fine, fine."

Their banter was funny and sweet and excruciatingly erotic and I loved it!! As they grew closer and their relationship developed, Nate softened immensely, falling hard and fast for the secretive little multifaceted woman who made him a better man.

And then the suspense started. I literally sat straight up with my eyes wide open and said "Oh, my god" out loud when Nick's sister Suze sprays the perfume…the creep factor shot from…not quite zero, let's say 20…to 60 with one line. EEK!!! But unlike a lot of books, it didn't end with drama, it ended with healing, and I LOVED that! Well done, Ms. Todd, this is an EXCELLENT read and I can't wait for more from you!

Bottom Line: Crazy good read that'll give you the feels in so many different ways.
