On her thirty-first birthday, hopeless romantic Kelsey Callihan has all but given up on happily ever afters, which is why she agrees to a risqué proposition from Sterling Canyon’s notorious playboy, backcountry skier Trip Lexington. After all, every girl needs a little fun, and with Trip, there are no mixed signals or risks of a broken heart. And if his tips can help her land a husband in the process, all the better.
Trip couldn’t be happier with his secret, no-strings fling with sweet and sexy Kelsey until she calls it quits after meeting a man she believes could share her dream of marriage and family. His jealousy turns to outrage when he discovers that the man is his estranged half brother and lifelong rival.
Now Trip must decide whether the fire in his gut is due to sibling rivalry or something much more dangerous…like love.
After reading Secretly Hers I have to say I'm pretty bummed out I missed the first book in this series. Since Beck is a new author to me I was a little worried how much I would enjoy her characters and her writing but as it turned out it worked for me.
While the story has been done many times and I mean the lets have a fling until I find the guy I marry story I really did love the whole spin and fairytale theme Beck brought to this one.
In the beginning Trip comes off as a manwhore but I loved getting a deeper understanding on how his childhood made him feel that he had to be this way. Sure he wants Kelsey but I really loved when he started to open up and I got to see how much he really did want her and not just for a night. Kelsey I liked but I felt she was so focused on getting married and having a family that she missed the bigger picture with Trip sometimes. He would just do the littlest things and I knew that he was into her more then he was showing.
“Prince Charming?” Avery asked. “Yep. Him!” Fee pointed at Trip. “He’s going to marry Aunt Kelsey when pigs fly, and I get to be the flower girl on a unicorn.”
This story was filled with laughter, tears and lots of romance. I loved the whole Princess and Prince Charming nick names they gave to each other. I enjoyed Secretly Hers so much that I am now dying to start the first book so I can see where it all began.
If you're looking for fun, romantic read that will get to you in every single way I would pick up Secretly Hers today!
