Review: Enough Secrets: Lies. Lust. Deceit. By Alexis Riddley

Publication Date: April 5, 2015

Series: Book 1 
Rating: 5 Stars 

Official Blurb: 

What if everything you had come to know about your life was a lie, complete and total fiction? Charlotte West had everything she ever wanted: The house, the status and the perfect husband in Winston. But that’s the trouble with appearances; they can be deceiving. Charlotte’s life had become a tangled web of ecstasy, rules, punishment and unparalleled pleasure at the hands of Winston, and his business partner, Aiden.

Charlotte never expected Winston was harboring secrets deeper than her own. She was clan-destined to lock more away into her vault of lies in order to portray the flawless illusion that the outside world has come to expect.

On an ordinary day of no significance, Charlotte made a conscious decision to let go of the chains that were binding her together and prepared to unleash the carnage that was her soul onto the world. She no longer felt the need to please Winston, nor Aiden. She was prepared to deal with her decision. For the first time, she was going to be true to herself, and she was terrified.

But when the cover is pulled back and decades of lies, lust and deceit are exposed; the question is, who would Charlotte be when everything was exposed? Would she come out on the other side as she had hoped, would years of walking the razors edge leave her broken; or was she lost forever?

Let me start by saying this is a FANTASTIC debut novel from Alexis!! This is that book that literally had me sitting on the edge of my seat. At one point, my kindle was going dead and I literally crawled on top of my kitchen counter because I could not put this book down. This book literally left me speechless, my mouth hanging open, and tears YES tears running down my face.

I don’t do spoilers so I will try to explain a few things the best I can. Charlotte has everything she could ever ask for. She has not 1 but 2 wonderful men in her life that give her everything she needs. All 3 have a routine that they stick by. Their needs satisfy each of them in their own way. Just when you think things are going one way BAM this is where the secrets and lies start to spill. I thought I had everything figured out until Alexis left me questioning everything. There are so many times I wanted to SCREAM and JUMP UP AND DOWN. I literally could not believe what was happening. I loved Winston and Aiden OR at least I thought I did. Who wouldn’t love 2 men who could give you everything you ever wanted? But when the lies start to spill, my views changed and did a complete 360 for one of the characters. I can honestly tell you Alexis shocked me into silence with the ending of this book. I WAS NOT expecting the outcome. Please don’t miss out on this amazing book. It is definitely a thrilling ride that will leave you breathless until the very end. Just wanted to throw in that I am keeping my fingers crossed for more books from Alexis very soon!!!
