Best Kept Secret
(Rochester Trilogy #3)
Written by: Skye Warren

Classic Skye Warren, you are never sure exactly what is going to happen but when it does it’s never what you expected.

I could not put this down! Author Skye Warren has given readers an explosive book three to end this trilogy. We get so much packed into this book you need to take notes; I’m serious! From the Hello, Jane to the epilogue Best Kept Secret gives and gives to readers!

The pressure that Jane and Beau are under puts a st

And so we have the epic conclusion to the Rochester trilogy, this fantastic modern day re-imagining of the story of Jane Eyre. Best Kept Secret may be full of secrets and suspense, but Skye Warren delivers a satisfying and thoughtful answer in this conclusion to the saga of Jane and her Mr. Rochester. From start to finish, this is a page turner, entertaining and consuming.

From the beginning, Skye has woven a story that is atmospherically consuming- evoking the gothic tone and tenor of Bronte’s

I didn't expect Beau and Jane's epic ending to hit me with so much angst! Best Kept Secret by Skye Warren was intense, heartaching and heart stopping. A hint of darkness. An edge of suspense. The all consuming soul deep love with electrifying chemistry. This trilogy is perfection!

In the last 10 days I have finished seven outstanding stories, and Best Kept Secret began my streak that did not let up! I have been a reading Ninja people and I am giddy about it! Of course, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t just throw myself into reading back-to-back-to-back books and then go back to review LOL

So, what can I tell you about Jane and Beau that you haven’t probably already read in some other review? Probably not much as far as storyline goes, so I’m going to stick to how this trilogy

Best Kept Secret took a different path from the one i thought it would have taken...

Skye Warren surprised me, but she gave me the ending Beau, Jane and the little Paige deserved 😍

While all the secrets are revealed, Beau and Jane gonna be strong enough to accept they belong together, that they are enough for each other?

Gosh, these two drove me crazy with their doubts about their feelings, but I loved them anyway  🖤

The story is quite short and run fast...
maybe it's a little rushed  through

Tropes: age gap, nanny/single dad, Jane Eyre retelling

This conclusion to the Rochester Trilogy brought out even more secrets, but also all the answers.

It was a quick and easy read with a few sexy moments between Beau and Jane, and Jane questioning if she belongs in his world.

There was also more brief dynamics between Jane and her best friend Noah, which I wish we would've gotten more of.

The formed family dynamic between Beau, Jane, and Paige continued but also change

i'm stupid for beau and jane ☹️

And then he looks at me.
The jealousy disappears like a popped bubble. His dark eyes settle on mine. I feel the same heat I did in the bedroom earlier. The same possession. We could be standing anywhere on the face of the earth
, and it would feel just like this for him to look at me.
He holds out his hand

This trilogy has been such a joy to read. As a huge Jane Eyre fan, I was so ecstatic about this book and the author doesn't disappoint.
The third book is a rollercoaster. Absolutely amazing and so emotional. Jane became such an amazing heroine. And Beau... I loved him. With Emily back everything is turned upside down!
I highly recommend this series. Top favorite books!!!

**UP-Freaking-DATE!! Ms. Warren just posted on her IG that Best Kept Secret will drop on November 16th!! HELL YESSS**

To be honest, I am sad a vee bit disappointed that Ms. Warren has pushed the release date to 11 Jan 22. NEXT YEAR.

But today, I saw her post on IG, about her struggling both mentally and physically and I completely understand why she had to do this. So please be patient you guys 💪 (also note to myself too) Can not wait for this final book!

This book concludes the Rochester Trilogy. Wow what a ending it was! We pick up with a big surprise and it just gets better from there. We learn the truth about what happened all those years ago and what has been happening since. I enjoyed the fast pace of this book and the detailed backstory. Beau finally tells Jane how he really feels and tries his best to keep the family he really wants together. Jane gets a visit from an old friend and realizes what she truly wants out of life.

Best Kept Secret by Skye Warren is the emotional conclusion to the Rochester trilogy and it was heartbreaking, angsty, and shocking. I've really enjoyed my time with this series and how the author took inspiration from Jane Eyre and made it her own. A lot of the mysteries and secrets were finally revealed and I was shocked albeit also comforted to know the truth, to say the least. Beau and Jane's relationship is seemingly broken but the love, pining, and tension between them is always present th ...more

Fabulous, emotional conclusion to this trilogy.

When I tell you I was flip-flopping like a stranded fish and trying to pin blame on absolutely everybody in this book, I am not exaggerating. For some odd reason, any time I read a book with any sort of mystery, I will automatically start trying to solve it (and I’m pretty much always wrong. The only books I successfully predict are generally not mysteries 🤣). So even while I told myself to let it be, my brain was running rampant

The finale of Unraveled Secrets 😍😍

This one continues where that crazy ending was of book 2. I was so scared for Jane not knowing what was going to happen.

Emily is suddenly a ghost of a person back to the living. But it seems that there was so much more to her disappearance and her being absent.

There are dangers looming right in the vicinity and Beau will have to trust Jane that what she's asking of him, his help, his trust will help them get out of this entanglement of Vicious lies.

This was not the conclusion I expected, it was better! This entire series, and especially this book, is a stage where you are watching the players. The atmosphere, the reactions, the suspense, all the emotions, they aren’t prose, it is a play and you are watching it happen. You are experiencing it with the characters. Jane, Beau, little Paige, and all the side characters convene, moving across the stage, playing their parts, telling their story. There is love, there is danger, there is self-sacr ...more

Spectacular and epic ending to Jane and Beau's story!
With a Jane Eyre vibe, Skye Warren has given us characters who are tormented and complex. This couple has gone through so many changes, morphing into the best of themselves by the end. My heart broke for Paige, a young girl who has gone through so much, and has lost more than life should give a child. With Beau and Jane supporting her, and helping her navigate through such hard times, she becomes less sullen and apprehensive.

The third and final book of The Rochester trilogy is now LIVE! Please remember this is book 3 of a trilogy. Book 1 + 2, Private Property and Strict Confidence, must be read prior to Best Kept Secret.

I've waited what feels like forever for this book and whilst my mind was a little groggy on the characters and events in the books prior to this one, the ending of book 2 was clear as day in my head. Best Kept Secret picks up right where Strict Confidence left off.

I have been eagerly waiting for this conclusion. I was, initially, bummed that it had been pushed out until January because of health reasons for the author but I empathized with her reasons. Color me surprised that the book was coming out in November and I was going to see how Beau and Jane's story ended, especially, since it had ended on such a wicked cliffhanger.

From the beginning, this book has had a ton of mystery and unanswered questions. I was often left wondering who was truly goo

Finally getting the finale of Jane and Beau! After the explosive cliffhanger in the previous installment, I was very intrigued and on the edge of my seat to find out why Emily had resurfaced how she did and what she wanted out of Jane. This book focused on closing all the loose ends and giving closure to the story of Jane and Beau as well as Emily and what happened with her and her husband. With Emily’s help, Jane returns back to town and means business by not letting Beau send her away or take ...more
This modern Jane Eyre retelling will bewitch you. It is atmospheric, provocative, and puts Jane and Beau right on the edge of the cliff.

I think Jane shows wisdom and bravery in this final part as she faces dangers both to her body and her heart. So many battles to fight! Though she is starting to channel a new strength that comes from her intense, life-changing experiences with Beau and his dark legacy.

He is one tortured man, believe me. And lashes out in the crooked belief that is protecting Ja

I really hate to do this. I love this author and know she had a rough year. There was a delay for the release of the last story in the trilogy. I had HUGE hopes for it but unfortunately it fell a bit short for me. There wasn’t much connection between the characters. One minute Jane Mendoza is in love and wants to stay and the next minute...she is packing up and giving up on Beau. The steam and sexiness just

Jane Eyre is probably my most favorite classic book. I think that Jane is strong, fierce, independent, and stubborn AF. So, seeing a fleshed out story has been awesome. I really like the fact that Skye Warren was able to give us more story without losing the flavor of the core story.

Jane Mendoza doesn't stray too far from Jane Eyre. She is fiercely protective of Paige and Beau, she is stubborn, she is determined to do the right thing for the family that she has created. I really like Jane. She
