This is my first book by this author and I really liked it. It will keep you engaged and on the edge of your seats. Mike and Rachel were childhood sweethearts but she left him without saying anything as to why she is leaving. Years later, his daughter is looking for him. Is this going to be the chance for Mike and Rachel to finally get the HEA they were looking for so many years ago?

I received an ARC from NetGalley and I am voluntarily leaving a honest review.

This is the third book in the Accidental Love series by Dana Mason.

Mason never fails to offer us an unputdownable romance. And this book is no different.

We met Michael Murphy, Kelley’s best friend in the previous book in this series when she went to hide out with him when she had a squabble with Mac. He was definitely my favorite character from that book and I was looking forward to this book because of that.

Mike now has his Cross Fit Box store nearly ready for its opening. Then in waders

This is my first Dana Mason read and although this was a Series book, I didn't feel like I was lost at all. I will be going back to the beginning and getting to know some of the other characters a little better. The twists and turns that come to light the more you read have you reading and forgetting what is happening around you. The chemistry between the hero and heroine is sizzling.

Rachel has done well for herself, being a single mom at sixteen and raising her beautiful

After reading Accidental Lies, I was very happy to see yet another book in the Accidental Love series. The books can be easily read as a standalone, but it is nice to see the characters of the earlier books in this one. We meet Mike, who is moving back to Sacramento to open up a new center in his fitness chain. When he is back in Sacramento, his former sister in law, Kelley asks him to help her with the planning of her wedding. Since being widowed to Mike's brother, she has been best friends ...more

I’ve always been a Dana Mason fan and Accidental Secrets was the perfect ending to a wonderful contemporary romance series. We got a short peek at Mike’s life in the first book, Accidental Groom, and I’m so glad that Dana came back and wrote his story!

Mike lost Rachel, his high school sweetheart, without explanation or discussion when she moved to a different state out of the blue at sixteen. The reason? She was pregnant with Mike’s baby and her mother, or The Witch, as I started calling her,

I received a free copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Rachel and Mike were in love in high school. But when Rachel got pregnant, her mom forced her to move to Sacramento and keep the baby as a secret.
Now, fourteen years after, she hasn't forgotten Mike. And Raegan, their daughter insists on knowing the truth about her dad. Buy how can Rachel be honest with her if she never told Mike the truth??
The story is OK. It's full of secrets, lies and a very mean mom .

Thanks to the publisher for an ARC to read and give my honest opinion.

This was a delightful surprise and my first by this author. Rachel became pregnant at a young age and shipped off to live with her dad. The father of the baby was not notified, and thirteen years have passed when the daughter snoops through moms stuff to find her dad. This is a beautiful second chance romance that I feel was an incredible story.

What did I like? The book starts with Reagan (13 yr old daughter) looking for her

I am three for three with this author’s books! (I need to go back and read the other ones.)

This story did not disappoint!
Rachel and Michael have been in love since they were young teens. She gets pregnant at sixteen and is forced by her mother to disappear from Mike’s life. I will admit, at first, I thought Rachel was dumb. Who believes that crap??? How could she listen to her mother??? But then I realized I was young and dumb at that age as well.
The more I read this story, the more I loved it!

Narrated by: Kelsey Navarro

I loved everything about this book, from Dana Mason’s wonderful writing style to the storylines and characters she created to Kelsey Navarro’s fabulous narration. This is the third book in the “Accidental Love” series, each book stands on its own and as much as I loved the first two books I must say

I thoroughly enjoyed Accidental Secrets by Dana Mason. It is a steamy romance with a ton of excitement, emotion and energy. This is the third book from the author's Accidental Love series and it can be savored as a standalone.

Rachel and Mike were good friends before they became lovers. They were madly in love during high school and spent every free moment together. Then one day Rachel disappeared. Mike had no idea what happened to her and he mourned her absence like a death. Rachel's mom whisked
Rating 4.5/5*

This is a drama filled second chance romance that I thoroughly enjoyed reading!

When she was just sixteen, Rachel was going out with the love of her life, planning to follow him to university and make a life together with him. Mike was just as in love with her and together they had their dreams of a future together. However, when Rachel's Mum suspected Rachel might be pregnant she whisked her away with blackmail, threats and more. Given no real choices she left Mike behind, unaware

I enjoyed the “saga” of Mike and Rachel. I thought the set-up was interesting, the characters were real, and the situations were natural. The occupations of the two main characters added to the uniqueness of their story. Without giving anything away, their separation and reunion several years later were facilitated by an important person (which also made it original). The third of a trilogy, this book can be read as a standalone, but you might understand the dynamics better if you read the first ...more

This story hit a little too close to home for me, which is precisely what made it leap off the page. I understood their pain and regrets, but you don't need to have experienced something similar to enjoy or relate to this book. Like all of Mason's novels, it's filled with emotion and heartache that draws you in and makes you want to hug the characters' grief away. I was so relieved and blissfully happy when they were all able to do that for each other. Another fantastic, emotional, sexy AF read ...more

Book 3 in this splendid series and I can’t get enough! Oh boy this sounds so strange when you see which genre this is, but it’s the way the author has me captivated that I can’t get enough of. Oh Jeez, this seems to come out all wrong as well. OMG, the way of expressing myself does not get any better LOL.

One thing I can assure you : the stories are great. They are all very emotional and raw but oh so wonderfully, totally beautiful.

Don’t expect a book filled with cheap sexscenes. The book is in

This was pretty good! It is a second chance romance with a secret. This is filled with characters I love, characters I hate and even ones to feel sorry for. I loved the reconnect and seeing all the flirty banter come out. So much fun. Then the evil I just can’t get over the manipulation! Arg!!

This is a new author for me. I loved the flow of the story. The characters and their ideals. I loved Rachel’s journaling aka her letters to Mike. That was a great way to tell that portion

This is a great second chance romance. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it in just a couple of hours. The story grabs your from the beginning, the book has three different POVs throughout the story so you can really connect with the characters. This book, although a part of a series, is a complete standalone. I haven't read any of the other books and still loved it. Quick, hot, and with a sweet ending is just what I wanted for my beach read and this book didn't disappoint.

The third book in Accidental Love, Accidental Secrets, lives up to its title. Deception, lies and discovery follow the characters and when all is revealed can forgiveness and love be waiting for them. A good story and a great addition to this series.

Accidental Secrets by Dana Mason is the 3rd book in the Accidental Love Book series, and my 2nd book in the series. In this book, Rachel and Mike were high-school sweethearts, until Rachel's mother moved her to live with her father in another state. Mike is angry she never said good bye, and Rachel is upset she never told Mike the truth. This book is predictable because when the truth comes up later, he get angry because he was never told, but it has a sweet ending. If you are looking for a fun ...more

I had super high expectations of the latest book from Dana Mason having LOVED the previous one. Good news: it is just as good as the last one, yay!
As I stated in my review of Accidental Lies, I had judged that book by its cover and thought that the plot would be shallow and physical. Once again, this was completely wrong.
Fourteen years ago Rachel and Mike were devoted to each other, planning college together and a future in each other’s arms. But then Rachel became pregnant and her toxic mother

WOW I thought the last book was so good, I love Drew, but... this one stole the limelight. Ms. Mason, my heart broke and mended again, to repeat the process again and again. I love Mike and the way he loves Rachel. Her story broke my heart and her mother reminds me of a family member that caused so much heartache UGH I did let loose a few choice words while listening in the car LOL

This book was exactly what I was in the mood for. A great second chance romance, lots of chemistry between the hero and heroine and a real reason for them being kept apart for so long.
I'm always a little wary of books where there's a child involved, but in this case, it was handled really well. Although I struggle with the idea of keeping a father away from their child and not telling them that there was even a baby on the scene. In this case, Rachel and Mike's daughter is 13 by the time that he

„Accidental Secrets“ is my first book by this author and I liked the writing style. The journal entries were really sweet and the few flashbacks gave a little insight in the past.
I enjoyed Rachel and Mike‘s story but I have to confess mostly because of Mike ;) and because of the best friends Isla, Mac and Kelley. Especially Isla, I love her for being real with Rachel and telling her to put her big girl panties on.

This is my favourite of the three books in this series. Rachel and Mike are well-written with plenty of depth. The story is also very well-written and the secondary characters are all great. Rachel's mom, however, is a bit of a nightmare! I thoroughly enjoyed this second chance romance and highly recommend it!

I have not read the other books in this series so I'm not sure if that helps or hurts me but either way, I enjoyed this. Dana is a new author to me and I can definitely say that I'll be checking out more of her books.

This was a quick read for me. It's about a single mama, Rachel who had a daughter with the love of her life back when she was in high school and since her mother was a 'psycho', she made Rachel up and leave and threaten her if she tried to contact Mike. 13 years go by and Mike and
