We all have secrets.
As a Ruthless Sinner, I had more than I could count.
Club business was club business. Period.

Marlowe Davenport, the club’s new bartender, had secrets of her own.
The girl was beautiful with captivating, blue eyes that could hypnotize any man.
Hell, without even trying, she had me tied up in knots.
She’d come to Nashville to escape her past, and I wa

Secrets We Keep was the third book in the Ruthless Sinners series by L Wilder.

I loved the prologue. It was the perfect back story and beginning for the book. Rafe was a patched member of the MC who had a vital part in each book to date. The prologue took us back to the first time he saw the Sinners as a child and with that, desire and loyalty were born.

Marlowe grew up just the opposite. The only loyalty she ever saw was the loyalty her parents gave to her younger sister. She may not have been p
This was a really cute story, and it was a lot of fun it had great characters that were engaging that added tons of humor to the story. The teasing and the banter between the men were quite funny and made us laugh throughout the entire story.

We loved Marlowe and Rafe as a couple we loved that they just clicked both sweet, kind, and loving.
Our heart went out to Marlowe for what her family had done to her and their coldness but, we loved how she easily because part of a large and loving family and

The Secrets We Keeps is Book 3 of the Ruthless Sinners MC Series. And the cover is SMOKIN' HOTT!!!! I could stare at that face all day 😍. The story focuses on Rafe and Marlowe.

Rafe was sexy, confident, caring, and loyal. I liked how he took charge when Marlowe needed it. I thought Rafe was a lot more mellow then he was in previous books of the series. If I remember correctly, he was quite the manwhore. But he seemed more reserved in this book, all business.

Marlowe was a sweet, caring, independ

Another stellar installment of the Ruthless Sinners! Marlowe has lived her life in the shadow of her little sister. Her parents put all of their energy and love into her little sister and pushed Marlowe to the back, eventually pushing Marlowe to leave and discover who she is on her own. She moves to Tennessee where she is no longer in the shadows. Marlowe gets a job at a dive bar owned by one of the Ruthless Sinner’s grandma, and from there, she flourishes and discovers she has allies with the S ...more

OMG when I saw this book on my kindle a happy dance occurred. It wasn’t pretty but is was enthusiastic. Wink. Ok let me tell you about my read.

Hubba Hubba... what I love! Rafe is my guy. I claim him. Yummy. He is the right mixture of MC bad boy and awesome protector. He is a perfect Sinner. Hee hee.

Marlowe... I actually identify with our heroine throughout the first part of this book in regards to her low self esteem. How her family treated her made my blood boil. I could have hurt someone. It

Within the first few pages I was drawn into this book. I was ready to just curl up in bed or on the couch and get lost in this story.

The introduction to Rafe was memorable and then when Marlowe was introduced it both broke my heart and also instantly had me rooting for her. I felt bad for her situation that lead her and Rafe to meet, but also had to be happy that they did.

I loved the protectiveness and loyalty of both Rafe and the entire MC towards those they cared for. It was a trait that was s

Secrets We Keep is a ride and a half. From the first sentence I was interested in following Rafe and discovering everything about him. It's no secret I read MC for tge male lead alpha so I was beyond thrilled when Rafe turned out to be pretty darn awesome, LOL. What I loved more about this story was the characters, their attitudes, action, beliefs and their family vibe. This author knows how to give the reader and action packed, grit driven exciting romance everytime. This story was a pleasure t ...more

Another Great Ruthless Sinner!!

Rafe and Marlowe were great together. Rafe is a great BBF that I won’t soon forget and Marlowe is a self-made feisty woman who has one messed up family which she left behind. Oh, but the secrets that are behind her story were what made this made this book near impossible to put down. The suspense, chemistry and MC loyalty was what every MC book should be about.

You don’t want to miss this next installment of the Ruthless Sinners MC. From the first page to the last I

Secrets We Keep is the third book in the Ruthless Sinners series, told in dual POV. Absolutely love this series and the characters. Rafe and Marlowe’s story was a wonderful addition, just love these two!

Rafe knew from his teen years that he was going to be a Ruthless Sinner, it was his dream from the time he heard the thunder of their pipes roaring down the road and saw the patch on their backs, that was what he wanted more than anything.
Marlowe left behind everything she knew when she moved ou

Leslie Wilder has done it again! Secrets We Keep is the latest release in her Ruthless Sinners MC series, and what an AMAZING book. As usual Leslie has given us a story with great characters and a story that goes from one scene to the next effortlessly. Rafe and Marlowe are incredible together. Marlowe has lived in the shadows of her younger sister. With little to none self esteem Marlowe leaves home for a fresh start in another state. Rafe has wanted the new bartender at dive bar that his MC br ...more

There wasn't any mention of wether or not he was with someone after meeting her. She had lived there a year before they got closer, no mention of timeline of H's past but there was many. I liked both mc's, just when I was afraid the H would hit arsehole he dialed it down a notch. The bad guy, his threats and what he did in her apartment were a tad corny. Overall the best one of this series for me ...more

I absolutely love Marlowe and Rafe!! These two have exceptional chemistry despite their vastly different upbringings. Rafe confident, caring and oh so sexy. Marlowe is sweet and independent. They balance each other out well. She is the new bartender and he has had his eye on her from the first time he met her. But will everything work out when secrets are exposed? I can’t wait for the next installment of this excellent series!!

This was another great edition to the Ruthless Sinner’s.

Marlowe never felt like she belonged in her family so as soon as she’s old enough she left to start a new life in another state.

The Sinners have had there share of trouble in recent years. Now there is a new hidden threat .

Rafe and Marlowe are combustible.

“Well, in that case, you’re right. I didn’t ask.” His eyes were trained on mine as I teased. “So, do hot, bad-boy bikers like yourself even have a type?” “Absolutely.”“Ooo-kay.” A playful

Ruthless Sinners bk 3.
Rafe (Joshua Ralph) and Marlowe.
Well written, story flows freely and easily. Story fits in well with the series. It is a delight to read.

But boy poor Marlowe, growing up in that home. Kate and her parents are real piece's of work. You don't need enemies, when you have family like that. Good thing for Marlowe, that she now has the Ruthless Sinners as her family.
Recommend the book and the series.

Another incredibly written book by this author! I just love the bad boy with the heart of gold and rafe had that in spades and so much more. Marlowe i loved that she is sweet but also a badass someone that if real would be my friend. The Connection between this two was off the charts since page one that is something this amazing talented author was able to provide for us especially me who’s been in a book funk since my grandma died last month.

I've always been intrigued when the storyline circles around a jealous sister. Parents can be so cruel when they only favor one child. Even if they had a reason. Secrets have a way of being revealed when you least expect it.
I'm just happy that Marlowe's journey landed her in the lap of a Sinner. They had a tough road, but they got through it.
I'm very happy that Rafe and Marlowe got their HEA.
This book is hotness overload. Thank you for a great read

When Marlowe finds herself in a bit of trouble, she realizes she can count on Rafe and his brothers to be there during her time of need. The question is - why does she need them to be there for her??? Eek! Read thi

Wow I don’t even know where to begin. With every book in this series I think that I can’t love a couple more but then I do. I absolutely adore Rafe and Marlowe. She has a hard past and doesn’t feel worthy but a guy like Rafe isn’t going to let that stop him. Watching their love bloom is probably one of the best things I have read in a long time. Another outstanding book in his series by this exceptional author. Don’t miss this super hot book.

Great read! My heart went out to Marlowe, her story, her life... that alone pulled me in. Add in Rafe, his protectiveness, the way that the two of them click and you've got a story you can't put down. The story has great suspense, jaw dropping and oh my moments! I enjoyed all the characters and looking forward to more from this series.

I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Rafe and Marlowe have a story to tell and I couldn’t put the book down for nothing. The chemistry between these two is amazingly written as is all the Ruthless Sinners stories so far - never a disappointment from L. Wilder as she brings the hot as sin Alpha men into our lives. This read contains humor plot twists moping groping sizzling sexiness with a dash of good ol’Country .
