ARC Review: The Temptation of Lila and Ethan (The Secret #3)

Releases on October 22! ARC courtesy of Forever
(Grand Central Publishing) for an honest review.

On the surface, Lila Summers is flawless: good looks, expensive clothes, and a big, beautiful smile. But a dark past and even darker secrets are threatening to bubble over her perfect façade. She’ll do anything to keep the emptiness inside hidden-which leads her into situations that always end badly. Whenever she hits bottom, there’s only one person who’s there to pull her out: Ethan Gregory.

Ethan set the rules a long time ago: he and Lila are just friends. He doesn’t do relationships. Although his tattooed, bad boy exterior is a far cry from Lila’s pretty princess image, Ethan can’t deny they have a deeper connection than he’s used to. If he’s not careful, he could be in serious danger of becoming attached-and he’s learned the hard way that attachment only leads to heartbreak.

When Lila falls farther than she ever has before, can Ethan continue to help as a friend? Or is he also getting close to falling . . . for her?

Asian Chick Karmen and White Chick Jenn’s Review

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

This series is such a heartbreaking, emotional and fabulous read. We got to know Ella and Micha’s in the first two “The Secret” books and were introduced to their two best friends Lila and Ethan. Lila and Ethan always had a mysterious relationship and in the Temptation of Lila and Ethan–their mystery was revealed. And oh boy–are they both damaged and living with a lot of baggage and demons!

Lila always seemed put together on the outside and living the fabulous life–but deep down Lila is struggling to stay afloat–she has mastered this facade that her life is perfect. Ethan knows something is up with Lila, because he tends to “save” her in situations. Ethan is also hiding his own secrets that seem to shadow him everyday.

Lila and Ethan share a friendship and start to help each other out, but not without drama. They’ve always danced around the attraction between each other, but until they both face their secrets head on, these two can’t get it together.

The Temptation of Lila and Ethan takes you into the next installment of The Secret series–The Ever After of Ella and Micha. We can’t wait for that and hoping to get more of Lila and Ethan too.
