I can't really say much since it was a really short story but L.J. Anderson sure got her place on my "loved-ones" shelf.
I can't wait for Sophie's Sweet Surprise! And more hopefully.
Oh! Did I mentioned that the cover is the best I've ever seen? :)...more

Can I say that my soul is literarySo, I only had the chance to read the sneak peek from S.E.C.R.E.T SHARED and really, it's not the whole book but... Can I say that my soul is literary crying from wanting more? I know, I'm fangirling... Because, I'm a 100% one. Let's not pretend I'm not! L. Marie Adeline wound her way into my heart with S.E.C.R.E.T and in 24 hours - that's all it took me to read the book - got herself in the "Queens of reads" territory! But let's get serious! Here's what I think upon reading the first 3 chapters from the book.
The book continues with Cassie's story and Dauphine Grey's - a completely new character in the series - who is not only a new heroine in the series but Cassie's subject of becoming a true guide for S.E.C.R.E.T. In the short, let's call it introduction, we get a little insight of the new "girl", her character and the core of her problems what still haunts her. We get to meet the old characters from the first installment. Will, whose presence combined with Cassie's just send shivers all over my body with a great amount of need to read more. To know, where those two are heading! Tracina's who just rubs me in the wrong way (those who read the first book might know why...)but oh, do we get a new eye-candy, too? Yes, personally, in Mark Drury.
I think I'm in pretty much of a trouble here. If I wanted to know how Cassie and Will's story goes on what I gonna do until I can read more about Dauphine and Mark's?
This series is just... like a drug. Sensual, masterful, addictive.

'I never meant to let you down.' Draven lifted a stray curl of his wife's hair from her face. She smiled in her sleep as if knowing he was there. As si'I never meant to let you down.' Draven lifted a stray curl of his wife's hair from her face. She smiled in her sleep as if knowing he was there. As silently as he could, he leaned over the bed and kissed her softly on the cheek. 'I've tried everything.'
Draven Reinhardt is a man with a dark past. He abandoned his old life in hope to start a new one as a villager - he struggles to fit in, to get a hold on a job however, a man with a past is a man with a past.
Thus, for a man like Draven, in the shadows of your past, how can you survive?
The rhythm of the book is perfect. The characters are great, the dialogues are smooth and enjoyable with a little dialect to make it even more interesting!
Draven's character is well-developed, complex.
He doesn't speak much. We learn about him through his thoughts and actions, which is just an excellent pinch of flavor to the story. And what further enhances the story, that he struggles with himself all the time - a part of him that wants to go back to his old ways again and a part that wants only resumption. This twofold line in his personality gave a really strong depth for his character and definitely made Reinhardt The-Man-In-The-Story!
To tell the truth, I found no fault in this book however, when I reached the last page I wished I had more. 'From Man to Man' is and excellent short story and definitely unique of its own kind. I loved every second I spent reading it and I can't wait for more!
