But Secrets Keep You Riveted

As I raced through the last few pages of Lyla’s newest Secrets book, I couldn’t help but think about what a thrilling series this is. I knew not to make assumptions about the storyline because Lyla always surpasses my expectations far beyond anything I can imagine.

From the moment Lyla mentioned Kayleigh in Secrets Don’t Make Friends, I was hoping she would write another book and tell us her story, and it was every bit as exciting and emotional as I thought it would be

Happy Ides of March, Butterflies - unless you're a leader of some sort, because then you should definitely beware!

So, SECRETS DON'T MAKE SURVIVORS is out today! It's a thriller about a woman in witness protection and her strange relationship with the man sent to bring her to the organized crime boss who wants to kill her. If you haven't read SECRETS DON'T MAKE FRIENDS, don't worry! The two are complete standalones other than some minor character cross over.

But Secrets make for an intriguing story. This book is different from others out there, which is why I enjoyed it so much. It intrigued me from the beginning and kept my attention throughout with suspense, mystery, conflict and a little romance. The characters are well developed and the story pulls you in.

I became attached to both of the characters and was emotionally invested in them. While I was wanting to trust Logan was a good guy and would do the right thing in the end, I was also warning

I don't think I have ever read a Lyla Payne book that I didn't like, and this is no exception to that rule! The book hooks you immediately and the character conflict has you torn between rooting for characters and worrying about the final outcome. You quickly become attached and emotionally invested. The reading is fast, gripping, and will keep you up wanting to know what happens! A great second book to a wonderful stand-alone series!

Where do I even begin to describe the Awesomeness that is Lyla's new book!? When I started reading this book I was completely sucked in! I couldn't put it down! The mystery that surrounds Kayleigh is thick. You don't really know what happens to her until much later into the book, and by then you are flipping the pages so fast. There is mystery, love, regret, guilt in this book. You get a good dose of cartel and lots of FBI. Read this book!!

All I can say is Wow! Ms. Lyla Payne did it again. This is a suspenseful thriller that make you want to fight for the truth and true love. Technically the second book in secrets series, but you read it without reading the first. Kayleigh placed in Iowa by FBI after witnessing a crime she can't even remember. The quilt of that night made her give up on life, that's until Logan walks in. But is he really a good guy or a walking nightmare? Read it to find out! You won't be disappointed!

Just finished Secrets Don't Make Survivors and loved it! I should have been in the bed 2 hours ago but couldn't put it down! Such a great and suspenseful story! I love how the chapters alternated between Kyleigh and Logan. Loved the ending and can't wait for the next book in the series!

Incredible! This is another intriguing, thrilling, suspenseful story. The story alternates between the point of Kayleigh and Logan, the two main characters. They are both so well developed and believable as individuals as well as together as a "couple". I just loved this book!

I've been publishing New Adult romance novels for a little over a year, starting with Broken at Love and continuing with the rest of the Whitman University series. I adore telling stories, discovering the little reasons people fall in love, and uncovering hidden truths in the world around us – past and present.
