When an unexpected offer is dropped in my lap from notorious lingerie companies, Hidden Secrets, I was shocked.
It’s an unbelievable offer, that is everything I want but there's a catch, I have to go back home, the one place I’ve vowed to forget.

Love this story.
How many people can say they have the courage to forgive their bullies.
The strength to move on from the pain of there past in spite of having to face it almost everyday.
That's what Brinley and Cole's story is all about. It's about the roads we choose to travel, the choices we make as we are coming into those years of making our own decisions and how they will effect us in the future.
Once those choices are made can we accept the consequences or will we be ashamed and embarrassed

An incredibly sweet and emotional story about second chances!

Brinley is a cinnamon roll. She's caring, devoted and does everything with so much passion. She has gone through so much in her lifetime that it completely broke my heart. She's so strong after everything; she truly goes through hell and back, but is still standing proud.

Cole is loyal, charming, sweet and puts everyone else's need before his own. He tells everything like it is and doesn't filter his thoughts, which had me swooning bas

Wow! What a great story, I loved Brinley and Cole. Brinley is an amazing PA and when an opportunity arises she can’t pass it up and take a leap and joins Hidden Secrets, only to find out the other CEO is one of the guys from high school that was part of a group who bullied her and that time in her life changed everything for her. Cole is attracted to Brinley, and there is something about her that just makes him want to be better. Only he doesn’t recognize her and the longer they spend time toget ...more

This is my first book by Ruby Wolf and I enjoyed it very much, I think is a nice change to read an office romance in which the boss is not this evil and rude person who is constantly mistreating his employees and the girl , also the plot is much more interesting than the synopsis reveals and the characters are incredible.

I’m SO IN LOVE with Brinley, she’s a very hardworking girl, the best at what she does, super organized, efficient, kind, with a huge heart, courage and strength. She has had to

5 Stars for Hidden Secrets.

What are YOUR hidden secrets??? For Cole Grant, it’s that he’s the creative drive behind Hidden Secrets, the biggest and newest lingerie sensation, leaving Tara Dunn, his main investor and his mother’s friend, as the face of the company. Oh, and he carries some pretty heavy guilt for things that he failed to stand up against in college. For Brinley Grace, it’s her past, and she’s intent on leaving it there.

Author Ruby Wolff is still a relatively new-to-me author, and w

Once I started reading Hidden Secrets I could not put it down, I honestly finished in about two hours, it was so good. I don't know what exactly it was that I loved so much, the writing - fabulous, the characters- superb, and the story line - addicting, I just had to know what was going to happen.

Brinley received an unexpected off from a lingerie company, but the condition is that she must return to her hometown, which holds some horrible memories for her as she went through so much in her life, and she was bullied through school which left some pretty deep scars. Cole is the owner of the lingerie company and Brinley’s new boss, and he belonged to the group of bully’s, but he does not recognize her now. The sparks fly when these two meets, and the chemistry is sizzling between them. Will ...more

What an absolutely amazing read, if I could give it more than 5 ⭐ I would.

Brinley has been through so much, shes had to fight to get back to the person she is today but the past has a way of catching up with you even when you have no intention of letting it in. She now has the choice of a fresh start but its back where it all started.

Cole  was the football jock in school the one that everyone wanted or wanted to be, untill one night changed everything for him, hes now changed, grown up and bui

Hidden Secrets was everything and so much more. Cole and Brinley, stained from their dark pasts, reunite yet again. And this time, the sparks are even stronger than before. Their chemistry was off the charts. The side characters, especially, Brinley's fathers, played an enigmatic role in this story.

Cole, a workaholic, who seeks a warm body everytime suddenly finds himself in uncharted territory with Brinley. The girl who doesnt want him. Who doesn't want anything to do with him. They play hard.

You know when you're reading a book and you don't want it to end this was that book for me. I absolutely loved this book. Brinley and Cole are an amazing couple. This author is good at making you feel what the characters are actually going through and feeling. What Brinley went through as a teenager taught her how to be a fighter and a fighter she was. Cole grew up with a lot of regrets and guilt, which took a lot to work through. For along time he buried it all with his business until he found ...more

Brinley and Cole's book will have you on the edge of your seat with all the secrets, twist, heartache and so much more you won't be able to put it down. These two have a past that only one of them knows. Will their past define their future? Will they be able to forgive or will someone or something, try to keep them from it? I was pulled right into to this book and was totally floored by all the emotions, feelings, the amount of twist that I didn't expect any of it. This touched every part of my ...more

I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars. This has everything I love; deeply emotional, tragedy turning to love. Cole and Brinley came so far over ten years apart. The strength and bravery of Brinley to overcome so much heartache and hurt to be a force to be wrecken with is admirable. I love independent and strong heroines. Cole proved he was incredibly sorry for past deeds. This story is about the ability to forgive despite all hopelessness and learn to love. But most importantly it is a ...more

All I can say about this book is WOW what a read. This has to be one of the best books Ruby has ever written.
This book gives you all the feels, what with its ups and downs, you won't put this book down.
When at school Brinley had her fair share of being bullied but now older and wiser things have changed.
Cole is the guy all the girls want, but the main cheerleader gets him, years later he's full of guilt, through one thing or another, and his way of coping is to sleep about, untill he see's Brin

This was a really great and highly emotional story to read. Brinley and Cole are phenomenal characters that will make you laugh, cry and fall head over heels for them. This is definitely a story that you will not be able to put down. You will be captivated right from the start with Brinley and Cole. The secrets they keep and their revelations will keep you on the edge of your seat with anticipation of what would happen when they were eventually revealed and the fallout af

Brinley is been head hunted to be the new pa for hidden secrets, but returning to Seattle will be hard.
Cole is the ceo of hidden secrets he's driven and invested in the company.
The new pa seems familiar but from where? She's exceptionally talented at her job and the pull towards her is strong.
Brinley didn't expect to have these feelings for Cole but can she get over her past, the scars are a constant reminder.
I thought Brinley was an exceptional character I loved how protective her dads were t

I have never read a Ruby Wolff novel, but I am so glad I said yes to this one. I absolutely LOVED it. It was not at all what I expected, and it was so much more. I couldn’t put this novel down, Brinley is a fighter and such a strong women. I love how she is able to forgive and move forward. Cole has demons, and his a womanizer. One look a Brinley and all that changes. Will they each be able to move on from their past??? This story is so heartwarming.

It was going really good and then I noticed that we where in the end... It felt really rushed and quick to conclusions. Somethings were disconnected, f.e. our H didn't recognized our h, a girl that he supposedly searched over a year (but name I assume), a girl that he and his best friend "tormented" for years and again no recollection. She hadn't changed her name or appearance. It had all the elements to be a great read but something didn't click. ...more

This is the first I’ve read of this author and I really enjoyed it! I loved the hidden secrets and the drama and buildup to those secrets being revealed. I loved the side characters as much as the main and I think there could be an awesome story there too! I will continue to read this author as she has left me with a smile.

Ruby Wolff is a new author for me and she's now on my list of YES Authors to read!

She wrote Hidden Secrets so well, I couldn't put it down. The emotions came out, hurt, love, angst, and pain. Its all wrapped up in this book and I ate it right up.

You will not be disappointed when reading this book, I can promise you that.

This is an office romance featuring Brinley and Cole.

Brinley and Cole have an amazing partnership which is very rare in office romances.

The author writes in a way that the emotions and actions of the characters seem to pop off the page and show you how they are feeling.

I loved this story!

Oh. My. Word. To say that this book was "good" is definitely an understatement. It was AMAZING. This trope is definitely not one that I would usually go for, but I decided to try it anyways since I love getting out of my comfort zone once in a while.

Loved it. Sweet, with drama and a little suspense. Will have you wondering since the first chapter what happened but at the end everything falls in its place and is totally worth it. Love how Ruby wrote the story and how she created each character giving all of them something of their own. Definitely a must read.

The past she wants to forget.
The girl he knows but doesn't remember.

Brinley goes to work for Cole in his Lingerie company.
She has a secret that she doesn't want to reveal.

Their story is complicated, full of tension, and there is one secret that prevents them to be together.

Sexy, steamy, hot, and amazing book.

I love every book by this author and can't wait for more.
