by Lisette Kristensen

I absolutely loved this story. Even though this is a short read it is full of action, twists, danger, steamy moments and more. Sloane finds herself in a bad situation when her husband turns into a rat and so she has to start a new life. She finds that she’s stronger than she thought and in her journey she finds out so much more about herself. I am very anxious to find out what happens next in her life/story. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I’m sure the next one will be just as awesome. This book definitely packs a punch and I highly recommend this story and I cannot wait to read the next one in this series.

The first of the Silent Secrets series is Blinded by Betrayal where the daughter of a mafia boss has her privileged life ripped away from her. Sloane’s husband, Jimmy, is picked up by the cops and immediately starts talking. I kind of get that line of thinking but if I were involved in any sort of criminal activity, I would never speak to the cops. Jimmy holds no real love for anyone but himself so he doesn’t care who his words put in jeopardy. Sloane’s father and everyone else now see both of them as traitors. She can take pretty good care of herself but with powerful people now after her, Sloane must turn to a childhood friend.
Spin Drift is a great sequel novella that left me with a few more questions than I had at the end of Blinded by Betrayal but it did get me more excited for the next book in the series.

Blinded by Betrayal with Spin Drift (Silent Secrets #1) Lisette Kristensen was a quick, okay read that kept me reading.

This short read was fast, steamy, actiony, and a little jumpy. The plot for me was a little hard to follow, as I found it didn’t match the synopsis. What I thought I was going to read about, didn’t happen. At first yes, it followed what I was expecting, then things are really smutty, sexy, and I don’t really know why. What I really want to know is what happen with what I thought was the male MC, he just, vanished, and I just, again don’t know. This wasn’t a bad read by all means, it was just for me, not coherent, or smooth. I don’t really know if I like the MC, there wasn’t enough character development, nor was there proper plot development.

Overall if you’re looking for something quick, with a mix of smut, action and espionage, then give this book a chance. As I said, though I felt disjointed with this book, I did like it, and I did have fun reading it. It’s well written, and the dark tone is consistent and hooking. So please take my recommendation and stamp of approval, that you will have fun reading this mixed read.

Happy Reading

Blinded by Betrayal with Spin Drift by Lisette Kristensen is the first book in the Silent Secrets series. This is a fast paced book that will keep you utterly fixated right to the last page.
As a new author to me I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book. And o have to be honest, I wasn’t particularly drawn in by the cover or the description. However I decided to give it a go anyway – they do say never judge a book by its cover and this is the perfect example of why.
From page one I was hooked. This was fast paced and intense all the way through. I loved the characters. They were so well done. The author created them to compliment the story perfectly.
This was a thrilling adventure and one I would highly recommend.

There is great potential in this story. The characters are recognizable but yet they stand out with just the right amount of a twist to make them different from what you may have read before. The plot is great, even if it gets a little crazy for a while. I think that it would be an amazing story if it was just simpler. This book definitely helped me escape my own reality for a little while and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend reading this book without forming any preconceived notions based on your reading history so that you can enjoy this one of a kind thrill ride.

Blinded by Betrayal with Spin Drift: Book One (Silent Secrets) by Lisette Kristensen is a well written thriller that I worried I wouldn’t be able to get into, but let me tell you I COULD NOT put it down. There was never a dull moment in this book and storyline and well written characters are what held me to the very end.
Sloane, mafia princess, has her life turned upside down when her husband is caught by cops and starts talking. Him doing this also now has not just put a target on her father’s back but hers as well. She reached out to her friend from her school days but so unsure she can even trust him. Sloane’s journey makes her open her eyes to a new journey to self-discovery.
Bravo to this author and writing an amazing book and I cannot wait to read more in this series. I give this book four stars!!!

Blinded by Betrayal follows what happens to Sloane after her husband rolls over on her mafia family. In the mafia, spouses are responsible for each other’s actions. When rolls over they both must die. With a contract on her head, Sloane has to think fast and act faster. Running to an old friend of hers for help, leads Sloane to a life she could never have imagined. I love a good mafia book and I love a strong female lead even more, so this book was right up my alley. I really enjoyed this book. I would have liked to have read more on Sloane’s training and I could have done without the introduction to the Chateau. I ended up skipping through most of that. It just didn’t go with the story to me once I finished the book. BUT, I still loved the story and I can’t wait to read the next one!!

I give Blinded by Betrayal with Spin Drift: Book One (Silent Secrets) by Lisette Kristensen, 4 stars.

Sloane is in a spot. Her husband turned rat on her and her family. Now that same family will want her dead. She knows the rules, but she didn’t cause this. Now she has to run for her life. On the way, she runs into an old friend who promises to help. He shows her a world she never dreamed of belonging to. But part of her knows that this is for her. Can she make it in the world of espionage?

This book is actually two stories in one, the second, being a short story. This book is incredible to me in that it takes steamy, erotic romance and mixes it with the suspense/spy world. It works so well too. The characters are interesting and believable. I really like Sloane and hope to read more about her. The story is quite interesting too. What do you do when you don’t really have a choice? Sloane is put in difficult situations, but she is a survivor. This crazy, unreal world is not something she envisioned to be her life, but she thrives just the same.

If you like stories with strong female characters and suspense which hot and steamy romance thrown in, this book is for you.

I enjoyed this story. I was a bit unsure when the story went from the daughter of a mob boss on the run to her being trained for something. I didnt see that twist coming and i loved it.

Sloane is the daughter of a mob boss who orders a hit on her after her husband told the police all about the familys dealings.
Looking for a way out she meets an old friend who takes her to a place where she starts training to become something and someone else.

There is loads of adventure and lots of twists and turns which make it a enjoyable and entertaining read
