This was an incredible story. Fair warning you will need kleenex. The book was funny, sexy, heartbreaking and inspirational. The characters were well developed, beautifully flawed and role model material. As I read each book in this series I am grateful for how each book deals with real tragic subjects in such caring ways. Cannot wait for the next book by this author.

This book features Meg and Collin. Meg pulled herself out of an abusive family and ex boyfriend situation to be one of the

Great book, couldn't put it down. I would have gladly given more stars for this novel. It has everything. Absorbing, entertaining, informative, often witty, romantic, action-packed and incredibly hot hot hot! It had given me an insight into the world of professional athletes, their agents and the PR team that works behind the scenes. There is a little 'deja vu' with Jerry Maguire with regards to the world it explores but this book is so much better, as books usually are. The author had described ...more

This is the second book in the All In series. It picks up exactly where book one, The Rule finished but this time it focuses on Meg and Collin’s story. Just like the first book, it is well written, entertaining and the characters that were in the first book are present and correct :-)
Meg and Collin’s attraction is instant, but similar to Liv in book one, Collin doesn’t like to risk mixing business with pleasure. Determined not to be put off from further getting to know to this intriguing, sexy

Collin is a sports agent, a player and former player, with one rule - no dating clients' exes. One of his clients is still in love with Meg. Problem: he's very interested in him but she's completely off limits. Meg left behind an abusive family and boyfriend, and is at the top of her game in the PR business. She was involved with one of Collin's clients, but she broke it off because he wants more than she's willing to give. What she wants is Collin, and she always gets what she wants. She ...more

This was my first book by this author and I absolutely loved it and just grabbed the first book in the series. I loved Collin and Meg, they were awesome. Their story was fun, quirky and deliciously sexy, I couldn’t put this book down. The attraction between these two is palatable, the only thing holding Collin back from making a move on Meg is the man in Meg’s life at the moment who just happens to be his client and he just can’t go there even though there is nothing between them anymore. Their ...more

The Negotiator

Oh my goodness... The Secret started out fun and sexy never in a million years would I guess that I’d be balling like a baby reading the last few chapters.

Meg is the COO of one of the best PR firms in the city. Her fun, sassy, and independent personality make her quite the catch. When she meets the negotiator she knows the game just changed.

Collin is one of the best sports agents around. He has one rule about getting involved with his clients ex’s, Don’t Do It! But when the

This was an incredible awesome story that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and I highly recommend. The story and characters pulled me in from the beginning and I couldn't stop reading. Collin and Meg were a well written couple and went well together, I enjoyed watching them grow. The chemistry between them was off the charts. There's plenty of action, drama, attraction, suspense, secret, excitement, hot scenes, hot and steamy romance. It''s an action packed incredibly hot romantic read I highly ...more

It all starts with Collin realizing that Maggie is dating one of his clients. He thinks she is hot and that she would be better off with him but he has a rule that he does not date people his clients have dated or are dating. Of course, not only does he find her intriguing and off limits, she finds him hot. Their attraction is off the charts and they are both very strong in charge characters. Makes for a steamy story as they work their way through some interesting stuff - is it really possible ...more

Can a secret stay in the dark or will secrets from that past cause problems

The Secret is the second book in the All In series and is about Meg and Collin who carry on a secret affair. But as everyone knows this type of secret never stays hidden in the dark, especially when Meg and Collin have flaming hot chemistry.
The author has written an interesting and engaging story-line and nice characters. There were a few things in the story that I did not agree with and skimmed over. But on the whole I

The Secret is the second installment in Maggie Cole’s All In series. This book focuses on Meg Grail, a PR expert, and Colin Corwin, a sports agent who has a client who is in love with Meg even though she doesn’t share his feelings. Colin has a strict rule of not dating his client’s ex-girlfriends. However, sparks fly when Meg and Colin meet and they agree to keep their relationship a secret, but fate has other plans for this couple. I strongly recommend this fun and well written book which has a ...more

The Secret is the second book in Maggie Cole's All In Series. I became a fan of Meg in the first book, The Rule. She is fiery, caring, independent, and intelligent. In this book we learn about her painful past. I absolutely love and adore Collin. He is a strong male character, who is also loyal, caring, and compassionate. The two of them together is explosive. Again, I love the use of the secondary characters. Collin and Meg deal with a lot of pain and emotional turmoil. I highly recommend this ...more

Let me just say.....Yuuuummmm!!! Collin is the greatest negotiator and Meg isn’t half bad either! Their romance is not conventional but still so beautiful! This book had me sucked in from the beginning and with a bit of a ‘WTF’ in there, I could not put this one down! You will love Collin and Meg’s negotiations, er I mean story! Spice factor? OFF THE CHART!!!!!! So steamy and sexy (And I love steamy and sexy!!)!!!! Maggie Cole is Amazing...this is the 2nd book of hers I have read and can’t wait ...more

The writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, I found myself in love with not only the characters but also the world that was created.

The descriptions of the characters and their feelings are so involved, you can truly picture it in your mind. Their attitudes toward the events that are happening makes the story even richer.

This was the second book in the All In Series and I can’t wait to read the rest! Maggie Cole has again captivated me with her sassy heroine and the playful banter and ongoing negotiations between Meg and Collin are hot! Steamy, flirtatious and inventive, this novel will leave you wanting more. If you read The Rule, the first book in this series, you will get to revisit Liv and Tom’s story, but if you haven’t this book stands alone.

And the secrets in this story will be revealed they always are. In the mean time, take a steamy ride with Collin and Meg while they learn to not only trust each other, but themselves as well. Meg will also have to come to terms with her past and the violence that made her who she is. Again, Maggie Cole has you turning page after page, unable to put the book down. I highly recommend this series to everyone.

Another awesome read by Maggie Cole! She always has a way of bringing her characters to life. Meg has gone thru so much and Collin is perfect for her and such a protector. Meg was soo strong. There are a few obstacles they have to face before they get their HEA. This steamy novel made me laugh, shed a tear or two and bite my nails. I loved the ending! I highly recommend reading this series.

Maggie Cole will leave you breathless in her second page-turner of the All In series with The Secret. It’s lust at first sight for Collin and Meg, but mixing business with pleasure can lead to unexpected consequences. Collin has a rule that’s important to his integrity as a negotiator. Meg doesn’t chase guys, they chase her. The chemistry is off the charts as they both realize, “If you don’t try, you can’t win!”

This is the 2nd book I've read written by Maggie Cole; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

I'M ALL IN love with this couple!

I fell in love with Liv in Tom in the 1st book and didn't think Maggie could make me love Meg as much. Boy was I wrong. I am overwhelmed with emotions for Collen and Meg. This story was so emotional and so intense I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this story and this series to others.

For two people that are far from perfect, Collin and Meg are perfect together. She is fierce in her convictions and he won't take no for an answer. Their chemistry is off the charts and I loved the resolution.

Secrets of previous scars- mental and physical - must see the light of day to heal.
The joining of people who see the good of each other as well as the shared grief help everyone heal.
& btw, you will gain a new appreciation for the benefit of having a driver and a window which can roll up between the front & back seat.
Everyone should always be All In or Leave.
