this was boring! i also did not feel they were in love. they had nthg in common apart from dat one-night stand. i can't fault jake as they were not in a relationship when he left and she clearly rejected him the morning after. he was not good enough for her. i thought savannah shud have told the parents and let them search for jake.
I read this book because it came in a collection I bought online. I should've known the book would be a huge disappointment when the back cover said something like, "She didn't tell him about the baby and now SHE'S the villain? How is that fair?"

I disliked the heroine from the beginning. It's not like the guy was a drug dealer or murderer. He wasn't a saint, but he wasn't so bad that he should be kept in the dark about his child.

Contemporary romance just isn't my thing, I guess. The heroines are
The Secret She Kept is a cute story about rekindled teenage love and forgiveness. Amy Knupp creates easily likeable characters that the reader can instantly care and want to know more about. This is a quick enjoyable read that has enough substance to keep the reader going, even though the outcome is going to be pretty conclusive.
I guess they all can't be hits! The story held/hold promise, but usually I want to just read these in a day. I had no problems putting it down. The plot which I have rad others like usually hold my attention, and it did, it was the characters who didn't hold me to the plot.
This was pretty good but for goodness sakes it's common sense you tell a guy your preg with his baby just to cut out all the heartache for the child later on. That was the worst drama in this book and I felt like saying look here stupids its done now move on.
Don't pick this up if you don't enjoy women acting like men don't matter enough to tell them about their own child. I should learn from my mistakes, but I keep hoping...sigh...Story was mediocre and I didn't warm up to the heroine.

I couldn't finish this one. I read the first 7 chapters and the last one. I just couldn't stand Savannah. I don't have any idea how anyone can stand her. Poor poor Jack, I don't know what he sees in her at all.
What a great story! I highly recommend this story to everyone.
