The Officer and the Secret

Semper Fidelis. Always Faithful.

The Officer and the Secret is an entertaining book that I enjoyed very much. I've been intrigued by Dewayne and Veronica since reading the previous book in this series. Two strangers whose paths kept crossing. Somehow they seemed destined to be together and I couldn't wait to read their story. The book definitely met my expectations as it was a very romantic story.

I liked the characters a lot. Dewayne is finally back from a stressful mission and is reunited with his friends. But he's not the same man. He's having some difficulty acclimating back into his old life and this played a big part in the story. He has been intrigued by Veronica and when they eventually meet in person the sparks fly like crazy. But Veronica is a bit out of the loop when it comes to relationships. The reasons why are eventually explained but they cause some problems. These two inevitably hook up for some sexy love scenes. I liked that a lot. But complications happen and some misunderstandings get tossed into the story that brought a lot of conflict into the story.

This story is loaded with drama and romantic conflict that kept me from the first page until the last one. I also liked that all the gang from the other books were back together so I got to catch up with everyone.

Overall, it was a good book. I enjoyed reading it and recommend it to everyone.
