Please buy it, it is wonderfully and thoughtfully written and will stay with you a long time
I floved this book hard.
Alexa Kennedy is what appears to be a shy self conscious young woman who strives to be the best at everything she does. Alexa is studying medicine and is aiming for Valedictorian to win a placement at the prestigious Mayo Clinic. However Alexa puts up a front with people when deep down she’s struggling inside and battling some really dreadful disorders which she thinks are beyond her control. Everything starts to come crashing down when she crashes her Father’s car when trying to get to the hospital in an emergency with one of her patients. This is where she meets Dex Blakewell.
Dex is a successful businessman, he’s good looking, charming and very swoon worthy, however he has his own demons brewing away inside.
Alexa and Dex form a beautiful friendship but with each of them having issues can it turn around and blossom into anything more?
Okay I did not want to give much of the plot away as I feel it would ruin the emotional experience that this book is. The Author has done a brilliant job and through her own medical profession and extensive research has got the issues surrounding mental health illnesses in this book spot on. I am always wary of reading books that have specific medical or mental health subjects incase the Author gets it wrong. I love the way this story pans out and highlights the emotions and situations a person can go through when dealing with what goes through their mind. I love Lisa Eugene’s books and Grayson in particular is a favourite of mine but this book is equally as good.Read more ›
Similarly, "Keeping Secrets" takes on a serious topic and incorporates it into a beautiful and sweet love story. A story about a love that conquers it all, that doesn't change and that is willing to fight through the hardships a mental illness poses.
The kind of love that makes our soul sigh and our heart tremble in awe. That's the love that Alexa and Dex share.
But it doesn't start out like that. Oh no. When they meet, they share a mutual dislike for each other. That irritation quickly turns into friendship - something neither of them expected or were looking for. Soon, a friendship isn't enough as they can't deny their attraction much longer.
What started out as a complete mess has morphed into a loving and caring relationship, with respect, passion and fun to boot.
But both, Alexa and Dex, are keeping secrets - secrets that influence their actions and emotions. And Alexa's secrets are the ones that can destroy not only the bond her and Dex share but potentially threaten Alexa's life.
Alexa is a perfectionist, always striving for success and beating herself up when she doesn't achieve the best results. She doesn't know anything else. It's only when Dex enters her life, that she actually starts living.
But there is a part of her nobody knows about. A part that's making her life a living hell, forcing her to hate herself every waking minute. A part that puts her on a path of self-destruction and it's only a matter of time before it wears her down.
It's a balancing act between hiding her secrets and trying to let someone in. But no matter how much she loves Dex, this is a side of herself she can't show.Read more ›
“My life was devoted to medicine, to hard work and a single minded goal.”
A minor accident in her father’s borrowed pride and joy, has major implications on her future. She had hurtled into the obnoxious, highly irritated Dex Blakewell, and his initial reaction at the scene, and reluctance to let Alex go, was the turning point for both of them.
Dex Blakewell was the head of his own enterprise, and wasn’t short of money, cars or lamp-light entertainment. He kept things very casual, and was certainly not in the market for a relationship. But on meeting Alexa, he was enamoured. He wanted to know her better, he wanted to spend time with her. Her hyper-intelligence was magnetic, and he had never enjoyed such enigmatic company.
The two became firm friends very quickly, slipping seamlessly into love. But both were battling demons, and the closer they got, the more their demons wanted to come out to play.
”So many secrets. Mine. Yours. We try to protect ourselves from the very people who want to save us.”
This became a very emotional read for me. I was captured by the medical slant, always a sucker for a rescued heartbeat, and a likeable, tortured h generated just the right mix.
Dex wanted to be Alex’s saviour, and his patience, alongside his desperation, was admirable. I absorbed Dex completely.
”Dex. My best friend. My passion. My heart."
A superbly, tormented, but powerful story..
ARC gratefully received from the author in exchange for an honest review..
