Mac fidgets in his car seat, arranging the stiffness in his pants. He reaches down to his glove compartment. Grabs painkillers. Another ritual to ease the throbbing pain from another sexless night with his wife.
“Oh, Alisha. So hot. So tight. So curvy. Your soft chocolate skin… Like wet silk, dripping with sweet licentious honey.”
He frowns. “But what’s the point of candy when you can’t unwrap it?”
He walks into his office. Stephanie welcomes him with a smile. Her short tight skirt barely conceals the garter on her upper thigh. Mac swallows hard as the vixen takes his coat. Suddenly, his pants are tight all over again.
Is Mac willing to take the dive? Alisha doesn’t have to know. But is it worth his marriage?
This book was much more than I anticipated. We all know the saying ‘don’t judge a book by its cover,’ but I think it should be understood that we also cannot judge a book by its title. I went in expecting a story centered around an affair, and while there is one included, it was so much more than that.
Mac and Alisha are a married couple who have begun to grow apart physically, even emotionally, while remaining intensely in love with each other. Thanks to the struggles and general grind of daily life, their bond has grown strained and tested by the easiest way in history to tear people apart: sex. Even whilst in the arms of others, Mac and Alisha are fantasizing about each other. This in itself is a very sweet, albeit devious, notion.
I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll just say that the secrets in ‘Naked Secrets’ are much, much greater than simply giving in to lustful desires and/or hiding them. Samuel Silver has not only created an exceedingly steamy atmosphere that will have you needing a moment for yourself (you know what I mean), but a suspenseful and emotional plot line that that has you needing to know more to see just how deeply this web surrounding the two lovers goes.
**Slight Spoilers*** Outside of the aforementioned ‘fantasizing about each other,’ my favorite aspects include the bisexuality of a presumed straight character, Mac’s career which is a unique and contemporary one I’ve not yet seen used in entertainment media, the offer he gets to be a male escort of sorts (as well as his reaction to it), and the unpredictability of the ending and who very well could be considered the ‘villain’ at this point. I wish part 2 was already out because I’d be buying and reading it right now.
