We've known for quite a while that Jilly and Aidan had a secret romance going on.... A Secret Affair finally gives us the background to that romance as well as the issues the couple faced.
If you're a fan, this won't disappoint, it also provides a hint to the "other ...more
Adian and Jillian's love story was just what the doctor ordered, no pun intended. Often when we believe we are doing what is best we find that the truth resides in having open communication. A relationship is built on sacrifices and Adian was ok with them until they became unbearable. The heart wants what it wants, and it's explosive when one discovers it's exactly what they need. Good job Mrs Jackson on another love story that shows what determination, ...more
Okay I'm a huge Westmoreland fan and I was only satisfied with this book. I waited to read Jill and Aidans story and it was just okay. So I recommend this book if like me your a Westmoreland fan so you can complete the series to date but if you have never read any of the Westmoreland books read Adrian and Trinity story of any of the Georgia or Denver Westmoreland books.
Brenda Jackson has long been one of my favorite authors. Her romance novels, the Westmoreland series in particular, leave your mouth watering and heart beating, waiting with baited breath, seriously looking for your very own Westmoreland man. I can only believe that Bailey's and Bane's stories will be as satisfying.
I have read Brenda Jackson books for quite a long time and am getting very disappointed in them. They are all the same and you can guess what is happening after the first few pages. Don't waste your money and I won't be reading the rest when they come out. Was looking forward to hearing about bane and crystal but can just imagine how that's going to go.
Overall 4 out of 5 stars
Performance 3 out of 5 stars
Story 4 out of 5 stars
Jillian walked away for their secret affair after a misunderstanding. Aidan does not understand why Jillian walked away. No conversation about he breakup. No slow departure. Just its over and that't that. They had one last chance to make this right. Aidan finds a way to get to see the one woman he loved more than anyone else in the world. Jillian walked away from the one man she ...more
You will not be disappointed.
Very exciting read from beginning to end. Brenda Jackson is an awesome writer and I enjoy reading her books. My favorite part was the lap dance scene. I am looking forward to reading Bane. ...more
This was a secret which Jillian's sister Pam and some members knew. These Westmoreland men are something else the love scenes are off the chain and Jillian was a fast learner. I also liked Ms Jackson mention of the Steels and Zion from the Bachelor in Demand series and Garth Outlaw from the new branch of the Alaska family. I loved the format of writing about Jillian and Aiden's past to their present. I can't wait for Bailey and Bane's books we had a brief mention of Bane & ...more
The theme was compromise and an open dialogue are necessities in any relationship. The new family branch was also introduced, the Outlaws. Can't wait to read about them!
