    I picked this up last month as a freebie. It screamed Fatal Attraction, and I’m a HUGE fan of crazy OW, so I snatched it up. (It is similar, there’s even a shout out to Meryl Streep.) John's in London for business when he meets Lottie. Initially, his inner monologue is that he’s researching for a book and will just bask in a younger woman’s attention, but somewhere between his “last drink: he fuzzes out and wakes the next am in Lottie’s apartment where she lets him know they had sex…3 times.

Initially, his inner monologue is that he’s researching for a book and will just bask in a younger woman’s attention, but somewhere between his “last drink: he fuzzes out and wakes the next am in Lottie’s apartment where she lets him know they had sex…3 times. The writing isn’t bad, but I did have trouble connecting mainly because I found each of the three mc’s very unlikeable. Unlike Dan Gallagher, John Treadwell doesn’t appear to really regret his dalliance, nor does it feel like he even loves his wife. Said wife, Vicky, is portrayed as cold, prudish, inflexible, and suffering from some type of bipolar disorder. She’s unkind to her children, and even slaps her baby. John is wimpy, selfish, and his character is flat. He’s stupid, and totally manipulated by lust even after knowing she’s a psycho. Lottie/Becca is crazy, but again flat. There’s really no depth to her character. I kept asking myself what was the point of plot. I felt like I was a passenger in the car, but we were driving in circles. All the parts are moving separately and it was missing some type of cohesion. Parts are illogical, and a big stretch from real life. Bottom Line I finished it. I was frustrated and confused, but I did hang on to see where we were going. In a nutshell, it had the bones of Fatal Attraction, but the delivery was totally different.*There’s not a ton of sex, but the language/actions are pretty crude so FYI if that’s not your thing.

    I will admit I went back and forth on how many stars to give this book, so I will settle on 0.5 While I did actually enjoy the writing style of this author, there was one line in the middle of the book that completely ruined this whole novel for me. “This woman was either schizophrenic or Meryl fucking Streep.” I spent the second half of the story wondering why he wouldn’t have just finished the nod to Fatal Attraction and reference Glenn Close here?

Especially considering 99% of this story has been “borrowed” from the film anyway. It was disheartening to me that what appears to be the only nod towards the movie also appears to only be half finished. This one line was enough for me to only skim over the remainder of this book because I felt like I already knew how the story was going to end. That single line felt like a spoiler in itself, as well as a missed opportunity. I will admit I kind of regret finishing this book because nothing happened that I couldn’t have guessed from early on.

    Secrets We Keep, broadly speaking, is the film Fatal Attraction in book form. A married man has a brief but intense sexual encounter with a single woman; she wants the affair to continue, he does not. What you read below takes place in the first third of the book. The remaining two-thirds, which I will not disclose, is where the story really gets going. John is the Michael Douglas character.

A married man has a brief but intense sexual encounter with a single woman; she wants the affair to continue, he does not. What you read below takes place in the first third of the book. The remaining two-thirds, which I will not disclose, is where the story really gets going. John is the Michael Douglas character. In this version, he is a published American author, whose unstable wife Vicky does not satisfy him sexually. While alone in London on business, John meets the seductive Lottie in a bar, and despite being drunk and tempted, he is determined not to cheat on his wife. He had never done so before and he was not about to begin now. The next morning, however, he wakes up naked in Lottie’s bed with no memory of how he got there or what he did there. John is consumed with guilt and regret from Lottie’s lurid description of their one night together. He wants only to return to his wife, children and life in America, and since he had not told Lottie his real name, John figured she would never be able to find him again. But of course, anyone who’s watched Fatal Attraction knows that a slighted woman can be ruthless. Lottie is not simply a literary fan of John, she is fanatically his fan, and had concocted an elaborate plot to meet, seduce, entrap and endanger him, not only while he was in London, but after he returns to what he thought was the safety and security of his home in New York. But wait, there’s more. John’s unstable wife Vicky is also his business partner and co-author of a successful series of popular books they had written together. Married twice before to unfaithful husbands, Vicky had told John she would never tolerate him cheating on her. If she ever discovered even one indiscretion, he would lose her, their daughters and his livelihood. John desperately needs to rid Lottie from his life, but he’s trapped because her pursuit of him is relentless, she’s in multiple ways squeezing him where it hurts the most, and he’s torn between loathing and lust. I had thought that the book’s resolution might borrow from another famous film, Crimes and Misdemeanors, where a man’s marriage and profession were also threatened by his infidelity. Secrets We Keep is full of dread, dirty words and deeds, and surprises. How John balances and handles his two unstable women is derivative pulp fiction at its finest. A word of caution: Before beginning Chapter 35, don’t forget to fasten your seatbelts.

    Uncomfortably erotic for half of the book. I was desperate to make an exit at every use of the word ‘dick’ which is a good 50 times. But what the storyline lacked was made up for in the later parts of the book, though I wish we could see the dangerously stalker behaviour further and more intricately.

    This was an Amazon Prime freebie....Not my usual cup of tea, and not for the faint of heart...this book is pretty filthy. Lots of graphic sex. The main character is basically being led around by his dick. However, I found it oddly compelling and read it quickly til the ending. Which I hated.

    I read 12 by this author and really enjoyed it so downloaded this off the back of that one but it's like another person wrote it ! I'm clearly NOT the target audience being a female in her 50s as it's definitely written with horny blokes in mind.

It did sound an interesting idea and I was really looking forward to it but language such as "You definitely know how to drill a girl" was all a bit crass for me and I don't know ANY woman who would say something quite so terrible, trust me. I'm no prude but porn just doesn't interest me, whether televised or written. I got 20 pages in and I'd seen enough, though I'd not seen any mistakes by this point, which is something. Just isn't for me so I'm passing on this particular set of stories by him. I'm quite surprised Amazon have it badged as a Suspense Thriller with no mention of the adult content.

    kept my interest, and fantastic at character descriptions. the conversations and thoughts in Paul's head are written to be so familiar, funny and as if you were right there with him. The fun bantering between Paul and his daughter is done perfectly. The subject is disturbing...and..has realism to it. You like him...but want to ring his neck, too. kept my interest, and fantastic at character descriptions. the conversations and thoughts in Paul's head are written to be so familiar, funny and as if you were right there with him.

    The crazy female stalker and the clueless male has been done enough that you really need to bring something new to the table. Unfortunately, this book doesn't. John Treadwell's self-destructive behavior becomes more and more tedious as the story progresses. And the ending was a bit glossed over. Not enough suspense for me, I'm afraid.

    Loved it. A real page turner. I don't read too many books in a two day period but this was one that I did. I found it hard to put down. Just don't read it close to bed time since it will get your adrenaline going. GREAT characters, non stop tension and kept me guessing how it would end. I'll be reading a lot more of this author's work. Loved it. A real page turner. I don't read too many books in a two day period but this was one that I did. I found it hard to put down.

    She did what?? This is a great book, but it centers on a fairly sick woman. It is especially good for someone that wants to be kept on the side of their seat. I recommend it for anyone that likes to read about sick, perverse actions.

    This book was written with lots of twists and turns. You are constantly thinking what is going to happen next. A one night stand brought out the woman from hell, yes he was wrong having the one night stand but was it or not, you just have to read the book to find out.

    Amazing Book Absolutely no spoilers. But filled with action and thrills from the beginning. Completely believable characters that you can't help but empathize with. Will be looking forward to more from this author. Will definitely recommend to family friends and fellow readers. Amazing Book Absolutely no spoilers.
