Synopsis new

Violet and Chain are trying to build a loving and trusting relationship, but life has a few more obstacles to throw at them.
Violet wants to know more about Chain’s rocky past with his father, whilst Chain is more interested in getting Violet to commit to their relationship in a more permanent way: marriage.
To complicate matters, Chain’s past holds a secret that could tear them apart forever, and he will do whatever it takes to keep the secret hidden.

This book is intended for mature audiences only!

my thoughts new

Hidden Truths, the sequel to Violet Chain, is a great mix of emotion and sexual chemistry. Much of the book centers around the aftermath of Violet’s abduction and Chain’s secrets and how he is going to unveil them all to Violet. In this sequel, their relationship is put to the test because of these issues and other threats that surround them.

The highlight of this book is the series of twist and turns. It’s well-executed! I was pleasantly surprised by how one thing was led to another, creating such conflicts which of course, were done sophisticatedly. J. Kahele‘s writing once again awed me. She writes flawlessly and creates characters that are not only attractive and hot, but with unique traits and perspectives as well.

There are some majorily heartbreaking events in this book that emotionally destroyed me and gave me a whole host of other emotions. At times I was even annoyed because of Chain’s stupid decisions. Ugh. I was still glad, however, that he was able to realize his mistakes in the end.

What I also enjoyed here was the side characters. Vince and Viktor are baes! They’re way too funny and sexy. I wish they’ll have stories in the next books. They will make great heroes, I swear! The introduction of new characters here also feels refreshing. Sandy and Christopher Blu… they are a mystery that is yet to be fathomed. The romance, on the other hand, was absolutely good, but I wish there’s more especially at the last chapters. I think the ending was too abrupt. Nevertheless, I did enjoy the entirety of this book. There’s sweet HEA and I think that’s what matters most. So excited to read the next book of this series. 🙂
