Feels like a Scooby gang solving a mystery, but much hotter!

I am really enjoying these books, there is a great plot including a good mystery, murders, kidnappings, beatings, Russian gangsters, ships full of cocaine, and wealthy families with generations long grudges. Then there is bunch of college kids trying to get to the bottom of it all by following people, breaking into ship yards, using hackers and gadgets kind of similar to a modern day Scooby gang like Buffy and her pals.

The characters ar

I loved this book so much and wasn't able to put it down! Everything I said about the first book holds true, the author did not disappoint after the cliff-hanger in the first book. This book had so many twist and turns and had me on the edge of my seat.

Winter has now earned the trust of 'The Four'. They still aren't any closer to unveiling the mystery surrounding Winter's dad's death and are vary of the people around them, not knowing who to trust who to not.

I've been waiting up all night
Take another drag turn me to ashes
Ready for another lie?

FIVE SUSPENSE STARS for Winter and Caiden ❤🖤❤🖤!!!





I don't know what to write because everything I wrote for "The Lies We Tell" goes for this book too.

I still love Becca's writing style.

The storyline is suspense and I couldn't put the book down.

"The Secrets We Hide" is the second book in "The Four" series. It's dark bully, college suspense romance with a forbidden and enemies to lovers tropes.

Winter has proven in this book that she is completely loyal to the guys.

I’d take a fucking bullet for you, baby.

The Secrets We Hide is book 2 in the Four series, you must read The Lies We Tell to understand what is going on.

Becca Steele bought all of the angst, mystery and what the fuck moments with this book.

No one fucks with the four, or our girls.

If you love loyal guys then you need to meet the Four. These guys own my whole heart and I never want it back.

I see you.

You have Caiden, the leader. The broody alphhole with a soft heart. He loves Winter but his trust

I’ve got a secret you don’t know.

What an intriguing continuation to this series! The second books in series which have three books dedicated to a specific couple are always a bit slow, because the conflict can’t be resolved too early, but this was surprisingly exciting!

Winter and Caiden and his friends are now on good terms, and I loved reading about their interactions. However, I felt like their friendship felt a bit forced and…unnatural? Same thing with Winter and Cai

I genuinely hate when authors only continue with the story on the first 5% and the last 10% of the book. The rest of it it’s just rambling about something pointless that doesn’t add anything.
They just want to elongate the story when they could just do it in 2 books or less.

Anyway, I will continue reading the next book because I’m nosy and I want to see how everything turns out.

I read, ‘The Lies We Tell’ and was INSTANTLY hooked. I could not WAIT to get The Secrets We Hide in my hot little hands. Needless to say, when I did, I was instantly sucked into my own little vortex where the real world no longer seemed to exist.

Holy crap The Four and Winter might be hiding secrets but there’s no secret how good this book it.

As book 2 we start to get some answers to what is going on and seeing Cade fall and fall hard for Winter and finally admitting his feelings was everything.

The twists in this series keep you on the edge of your seat and I need book 3 right now because I need some damn answers.

The Secrets We Hide by Becca Steele starts from the end of book one where we see Winter in danger and Caiden and his brothers trying to find out where she is whilst trying to figure out whether he trusts Winter 100%.

The Four (as we know them) are back and as strong as ever. Caiden (the leader), Weston (his brother and hacker), Cassius (the fun loving one) and Zayden (the dark, broody one). Each one seems to bring something to the story and also to Winter as she navigates not only her relationsh

"You ready for me to ruin you for anyone else?"

That is exactly what Becca did. From start to finish, I was hooked.

The powerful bond between The Four and Winter is magnetic, they all have so many different talents and attributes which make the group so strong and they all balance each other perfectly.

Cassius is the playboy best friend, and the comedian. He sheds light on all the dark moments and is very reassuring towards Winter. I'm hoping he settles down with Kinslee, they definitely secretly

“He burned my defences away, leaving the truth exposed.”

Seriously, I can’t get enough of these mysteries set in the UK lately. I am beyond ready for book three. Like yesterday.

Winter really shows a tougher side for me in the second installment despite constantly being in danger. Her dad has died, her mom is a monster, she’s been left for dead for digging too deep... or so we think.

The mystery prevails as Becca Steele takes us on an emotional ride! These characters have grown so much, fi

Omg i have literally been dyingggggggg for this book! Good thing this one starts off right where the first book ended! Note this is the second book in the four series by becca steele and it cannot be read as a standalone.

From the moment you start reading you get completely sucked in!

Caiden is one broody alpha and Winter is one badass FMC who doesn’t take any of his crap and is right alongside the four when it comes to danger. These guys

I need the next book, pronto! I swear Becca drags me down into the undertow with each of these books and I’m so invested that nothing else matters while I’m reading them. If you like the edge of your seat, must know what happens next type of story, you NEED TO READ THIS BOOK! It’s edgy, twisty, and I cannot get enough. Winter and Caiden are every single thing 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Me.... on the last word of this book “You.” I’ll just dangle here for a while. I’m sure I’ll get all my questions answered eventually

This book shattered me to pieces, left me speechless, terrified, excited, complete yet scattered around. Everything about it was perfect. Winter and Caiden’s relationship, The Four being their finest selves, mystery, drama and of course - Cassius Drummond.

You’re killing me !! My love hate relationship with cliffys continues as Becca Steele just PUSHES me right off with that ending ! I knew it was going to happen but I still wasn’t ready!

Loving this series so much. So much happens, it’s plot is completely packed and so many questions about what the HELL is going on that you will be ADDICTED. You’ll constantly be finding yourself guessing at who’s involved and when you do find out bits and pieces, it’s not what you were expecting. I was definitely

"The Secrets We Hide" by Becca Steele is the second book in "The Four" series and it was a total fabulous read. Being one of my most anticipated reads, Becca surely didn't fail to deliver a solid plot filled with suspense, heat and love.

Book two picks up from where it left off previously and immediately, we are thrown into the web of suspense and thrill. What happened to Winter? What did she find out? What will happen to her? Burning cur

The Secrets We Hide is the second book in The Four series. It CANNOT be read as a standalone. Book one ends on a massive cliffhanger and this books picks up right where we left off. Winter is in danger and the boys are trying to save her.

What a crazy roller coaster ride this book was. The constant action and need for answers had me reading late into the night and finishing in

Caiden just got more swoonier and more lovable and damn he out did himself from book 1.
The way his protectiviness shines through for Winter just has his alpha male hotness on a whole new level.

Winter she came through stronger in this second enstalment and I loved that she shined a little more. This tough ass chick showed these men how she works and I loved it.

These two boy could they get any more sexier? I mean the first book had me like wow but this one this story had more oomph to it, it ha

Pass me the tequila Ms. Steele because after reading The Secrets We Hide I need it!  I thought that when you left us hanging off the cliff with The Lies We Tell that I just wouldn’t be able to wait till book two of The Four series came out, but you have just proved me wrong. Because now I can NOT wait till book three is released.  Once again Steele has written such a compelling story that has left me reeling that I am just amazed by the amount of talent and imagination that is poured onto the pa ...more

The second book in The Four series is a wonderful journey of twists and turns, bringing answers, more questions, huge reveals, and incredible growth for all of the characters. I adore this series so much, the mystery has me completely sucked in and the relationship between the Four and Winter is so good. It's great to see them growing closer as a found family, and as individuals they each have wonderful development in this book.

This was another fantastic read from an author I definitely should of read sooner.
Yet again I couldn't look away, and was white knuckling my kindle from cover to cover.
I actually can't say much more, as since it's the middle book of this couples story, I don't want to ruin a single moment of this journey that I highly recommend everyone experiences.
