Book Review: Our Little Secret by Rachael Stewart *AD gifted
I was provided with a free ebook of Our Little Secret by Rachael Stewart ahead of the blog tour.
It has been a long long time since I read any of the stories from Mills & Boon Dare, and I think I had forgotten quite how steamy they are. Grab a fan, a glass of wine, and prepare for a women's pleasure to be front and centre.
A little secret sexy fun
Under the Tuscan sun!
It's her best mate’s wedding week – and Faye Davenport is celebrating with a skinny dip under the Tuscan moon. Except she's not alone. The sexy Italian dish is Rafael Perez – her mate’s off-limits older brother.
But now it's too late.

5 Word Review: Lust, attraction, passion, family, friendship.
From the moment I picked up Our Little Secrets, it felt a bit like summer. The setting made the glimpses of spring around me come to life, and now I can't wait for more sunshine.
I resonated so much with Faye, and I can't think of why! There was something about her that was so relatable, something so normal and human that I was like girl, I feel you right from the start. I love her hesitancy and doubts, the game face and false confidence she puts on.
There is a fairly hefty age-gap in this story - but then again that is also true for the secondary characters, and it's something very much acknowledged on page. And I loved that. I loved Rafael stopping and thinking to himself this is a bit much, and the internal battles that went on with the characters.
This is a relatively short book, and the pace is driven by the intense passion and lust between the characters. It's a book that is easy to fly through and will leave you breathless.
And for all that it's a story primarily about lust, there are plenty of sentimental and deeper emotional parts too, including some really profound depictions of grief. Our Little Secret delivers so much more than I expected, it truly exceeded all of my expectations. I loved the family dramas and reconciliations that helped drive the characters on.
I will definitely be checking out more of Rachael's Stewart's Dare titles. This was a romance that had me thinking yes, this is it. This is perfect.
It's our little secret. Our little bit of fun...
