Smart, Sexy and Secretive by Tammy Falkner

CaptureBlurb: Emily

I’m back in New York, ready to start my brand new life with Logan. Things are still up in the air between us, and it has been three months since I’ve even talked to him. But there’s one thing I’m certain of — I can’t live without him.


I need her like I need air. But now she’s back, and her dad and her ex-boyfriend are conspiring to keep us apart. We can do this, though. Can’t we? We can make this work? We have to, because I can’t imagine my life without her.





Diverse Read



One of my favorite series of all time.This is my third or fourth time reading it.  First of all, I love the obstacles that are in this couples way. It’s not something that is perceived, they are very tangible and constant.  Emily’s dyslexia and her parents perception that since she learns differently that she can’t learn at all; So they try to make her a trophy wife and pop out babies, which is very 1950’s and as a feminist I am suuuuper offended, but whatever, moving on

Well, we all know what happens when you try to fit a round peg in a square hole right?  Give the readers a medal, you are correct! It doesn’t fit!

Logan’s obvious obstacles would be the fact that he is deaf and he’s not rich.  The father’s approval is wanted but not given. He’s gotta work hard for it.  I personally don’t think his being deaf is a true obstacle in this book. I think mainly the poor thing is more of a disadvantage considering that those are different socioeconomical classes and people have been having issues with that for ages.

The way they were so steadfast in their determination to remain together, they didn’t waver.  There was no wishy-washiness of the love that they felt for each other.  And thats what really drew me to it.  A lot of books show the emotional strength wavers, it gets chipped away by outside sources and people start to doubt.  But there was none of that in this book.  It was solid in regards to their relationship to each other, once they were committed to each other, that was it. Do not pass go, do not collect 100 dollars.

I would definitely recommend this series to anyone and everyone. The first one is FREE!
