Alpha wolf-shifter Dane has been forced to stand by and watch the love of his life date another.

3 Wish He Would Have Kept It In His Pants Stars

This one was OK. The writing was great, and I liked both Dane and Trisha. It's VERY short, so you don't get very much depth to the story.

I didn't love that he basically knew from the first time they bumped into each other that she was his mate, but because she was human (and apparently mating with a human was illegal) he just keeps her as his BFF and fucks a gazillion women during the whole 7 years they are friends. At least she was dating and gett

Looking for a quick hot supernatural shifter read then you’ll love this story. Trisha is human and is best friends with Dante a shifter wolf, the only thing is that she has no idea about his secret. I wish there was more to their story but every second was steamy and loving. Great read highly recommend. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

What a great book that is short, sweet and full of plot. I was able to read this in a few hours and it kept me entertained which is something I greatly enjoyed. Dane finds himself in the "best friends" zone with Trisha. He would like to move it past that place but doesn't know how to do so. He wants her more than a friend, he finds her very attractive , more than that, he wants her badly. He makes sure he is in her life anyway he can be there. In fact, he is over at her place more than he is any ...more

Dane has been firmly entrenched in the friend zone by Trisha. He tried toinsert himself in her life and he spends more time with her than anyone but even she doesn't know his secret...he's a shifter!

Trisha lusts after Dane but refuses to ruin their friendship - he is the best thing in her life and now way no how will she trash that. But when her so called fiancee lets her down again,Dane is there to rescue her.

Audiobook version:

Story: This was short but oh so sweet! I loved the chemistry and heat that was packed into this read.

Narration: Wen's voice was soo yummy! Voice was clear, clean production. I would have loved a little more difference between the character voices but that was my only thought. I got confused in a couple conversations as to who was saying what.

Great Quickie!

Secrets We Keep was a delightful romance. Trisha can't have the man she wants so she runs through her fill of men that treat her terribly. Dane loves her so much that he keeps her as a friend only for years! This is fast paced with a lot of insight from Dane's perspective. The ending was quirky and fun.

This short story is hot as hell. If you want to read a good book, but don't have a lot of time, this book is for you. Dane is a wolf-shifter in love with a human. Mating with humans is forbidden, so he becomes her best friend. When his wolf won't be denied any longer, they take what belongs to them. I recommend this short read.

Secrets We Keep by Mandy M. Roth was a great read. Dane is an Alpha wolf-shifter and has to watch the person he loves date and marry someone else. That is because mating with a human is forbidden. I loved reading Dane and Trisha’s story.

Short, sassy, funny and definitely angst to the max. From the first page to last you'll hold your belly and laugh til you cry. I love short story that doesn't cheat you from the goodies.

A great short story about Dane and Trisha, a love that they though could not be until Trish is about to do something that will change her life forever, and not for the better. A fun and quick read!! I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

I was given an copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Mandy Roth's paranormal shifter book, Secrets We Keep, is a stand alone short story. Trisha Holt has the bad luck to be in love with her completely platonic, best friend, Dane Bennett. He's a great guy, and they have fun together, but he's just not that in to her. She has finally given up hope of anything between them and agrees to marry her current boyfriend, Bill. But when Dane comes to her rescue, after Bill behaves badly, she

This was a great short paranormal romance by Mandy Roth.
Dane ands Trisha are not only coworkers (trisha is technically Dane's supervisor) but over the past seven years have become BFF's. As deeply attracted and in love as Trisha finds herself becoming to Dane she is determined to keep him in the friend zone as to not ruin their friendship or working relationship. Trisha also is clueless that Dane wants their relationship to be so much more than it is.

I don't want to write to much about this story as I WILL end up giving away too many spoilers.

Dane has had to fight since he was a boy. Fight for his name, fight for his right and fight for his place in his world. But now Dane has the biggest fight ever on his hands.
He's loved Trisha for the past seven years, but he can't have her, no matter how strong the pull is. For Dane has a dark secret, a secret that makes him unable to have the woman he loves, his mate. For Dane is a shifter and Lycanthor

This is a nice quick read from Ms. Roth. Dane and Trisha have been friends for years. But both are hiding a secret. When Trish's attempt to move past her feelings for Dane lead to hurt feelings, will Dane step forward and heal her pain? I loved the relationship between these two characters. They have a solid friendship and it is apparent. They love and support each other even as Dane hide who and what he is. I loved seeing their rela

Secrets We Keep was such an interesting book! I loved the story but I wanted to SMACK Dane in the head for being a dimwit!
Secrets between friends always have a way of showing themselves!

Seven years is a long time to be "just friends" with someone especially when that girl is Trisha Holt and she is Dane's fated mate. Dane is told that it's forbidden to mate with a human by the elders but Dane can't take it much longer!!

You would think he could get anything he wants but he can't have Trisha, his pack told him humans are off limits. SO for 7 years he has been Trisha 's friend.

It's true! Tell a person (or lycan) you can't have it (her) and it is that much harder to resist. For years Dane has done that very thing, resisted sweet Trisha as forbidden by his pack leaders. He hasn't been able to stay away from her, so he is her BFF. Sweet torture every minute, but being near her is better than not. Even an alpha lycan has an end point. Could it be another man?

This is a very short, hot, wolf shifter read. As always, Ms. Roth

Resisting the inevitable
This is a quick little self-contained story about an Alpha male were wolf and a human female. Dane has always believed it was against Lycan law to mate with a human, even if she is his true mate.
Trisha may be engaged to an idiot and dated others for the past 7 years but the one she truly wants is her best friend Dane. But according to Dane they can never be anything but friends.
This all comes to a head when Trisha and Dane are at her apartment watching a movie, after he

This was a great quick read that didn't leave me feeling cheated. The characters were very well developed and the story line didn't feel rushed. Trish and Dane have been friends for seven years. Dane knew the moment he met her that they were mates, but she is human and he believes it is illegal, in his world, for lycans to mate with humans. The friendship between these two was encouraging.

Great read and I hope the start of a new series.

This is a short, sweet, but sexy book. It is easily read in an afternoon, or it was for me. I loved the tension between best friends as Dane wants Trisha but knows she is forbidden. She also is engaged to a jerk. Why? Well she doesn't want to be alone but thinks Dane doesn't want her. It is a fun story of the two coming together and Dane finally saying to hell with the law and follows his heart.

I voluntarily left a review from an ARC that was received.

Short, Sweet, Sexy

Secrets We Keep is a quick, sexy-sweet read with a HEA that is perfect for a romance fix. Dane and Trish are best friends who've avoided and ignored their feelings for each other for seven years. When things change, they're forced confront those feelings. I really enjoyed the story, even if some of the lines are corny. If you're looking for a feel-good, but dirty quickie, Secrets We Keep is perfect!

This is a very entertaining short story. Dane and Trisha are best friends. They are attracted to each other but will not act on it. Trisha thinks it is because they are best friends and she is involved with another man. But that is not the real reason. Dane is a werewolf and forbidden to mate with a human, especially one who does not even know that werewolves exist. Trisha is his true mate and rules are made to be broken

This was a great fast paced book that had no dull moments. That being said it was about a third of the length I'm guessing of the iops series books. If you are a fan of.Mrs. Roth 's then this is a good book for you.
