I was wondering how you managed to read and review five books, but I am guessing after reading all your reviews that these are more like short novellas. I think I would definitely like to have them all bundled into one, but still the serials is a fun idea. It sounds like these get even better as they go! Great mini-reviews and thanks so much for sharing the excerpt!! That was one yummy dream! Cole sounds very hot and sexy-I like the sound of their whirlwind romance. This sounds like a great series!
I love the covers! Oh wow this sounds like a very good series! Like on other books. But yeah it sounds great and I love how it sounds like it ends so awesomely. So often series kind of loses its spark after the first couple of books. It has been forever since I read a serial. It does look like this one worked for you and I like how each one was more intense than the last one! But I have discovered I like the whole serial thing and getting short stories.

- Secrets Vol. 3.
Such a cool idea! From the sound of your reviews, this would be a good serial to start with. Thanks for sharing these! It was a dream?! Also, that guy on the cover? These books sounds like they would be really good!! I was reading the book the book descripitions as i scrolled down and the books seemed to get better and leaving a question from me about whats going to happen next..
I tried the one Beth Kery did and it drove me crazy. They sound like a wild ride! His smooth skin slides over my bare waist as he kisses me harder. My lips burn, they throb as I pull him closer to me. His thick hair is tangled in my fingers, his strong arms around my waist, pulling us closer—tighter together. A burning desire to feel him inside consumes every thought I have. There is nothing but him and me. My nails claw his back as his kisses leave a hot trail down my neck.
Our clothes are gone. I cry out, saying his name, begging him to take me. The third time I plead, he answers me. Without a word, he flips me over. I land on the sheets, and look up at him. My legs are splayed before him, completely exposed. His hard body meets mine and he pushes into me, rapidly, over and over again. I want him, I want him to fill me with come. There is no hesitation, no holding back. We move together like we were made for each other. A hand shakes my shoulder. The dream shatters, and fades, but the emotions are still flooding my body.
Slowly, I realize I was dreaming and open my eyes. Cole nods and sits on the coffee table across from the couch. Ward Sex is supposed to be sexy, tantalizing, and completely erotic, but Anna never seems to find the right guy. This one seems to be a germ-a-phobe, and the previous boyfriend wasn't much better. Anna just wants to be wanted.

Dec 17, H. Dec 27, vegalegarreta rated it liked it. Jan 16, Jen rated it it was amazing. Jan 19, Kate rated it liked it Shelves: I got totally sucked in to Anna and Cole's story. They're cute and the banter is fun. I saw the antagonist coming a mile away though I certainly didn't expect it to get quite so I'm left wondering about a few things, though.
Secrets Vol. 3 (Secrets, #3) by Ella Steele
She seemed to get the creeps going in there frequently and his comments at the end seemed like he saw her with Cole; perhaps HM Ward's intention was for us to assume he was being a peeping tom I got totally sucked in to Anna and Cole's story. She seemed to get the creeps going in there frequently and his comments at the end seemed like he saw her with Cole; perhaps HM Ward's intention was for us to assume he was being a peeping tom through the window? But I kept thinking surely she would find a hidden camera any moment.
He seriously built a whole studio for some 20 something girl he'd never met? And didn't seem to have any indication that he'd like her until the 'disastrous' interview. Or if she'd made it more that he'd built the studio with the intent of running it himself or finding a partner and now that he'd gotten to know her he wanted her to run it. But the way it was approached, that he built it with her in mind without knowing her at all just seems ridiculous. Really, truly, it didn't seem like there was ANY distinguishing one volume from another; generally the first chapter of the next 'book' took place SECONDS after the last chapter of the previous.
Jan 15, Sarymil rated it it was amazing. I hadn't had a chance to read this series, so when I heard that H. Ward released it as one book, I jumped on it quick after many people mentioning that I needed to read it. Secrets is a 5-serial series that tells the story of Anna and Cole. Anna is a college student that, in order to graduate, must complete an internship at one of three different photography studios to complete her degree.
She has her sights on one specific studio because of its impeccable reputation but doesn't end up where she I hadn't had a chance to read this series, so when I heard that H. She has her sights on one specific studio because of its impeccable reputation but doesn't end up where she planned her whole life to be at. She has her wits about her and is completely smart to call on anyone's bluff, which helps her see the true meaning in people and open her eyes to new experiences she thought were against what she believed in. Cole is a sexy, arrogant photographer that is almost twice the age of Anna's and is fascinated by her smarts.
Because of this, he decides to outright hire her as an intern and is determined to have her understand that what he does is not to be considered as sleeze but as art. With his determination, he helps Anna open her eyes and view photography in a new, sexy way that helps her grow as a photographer and an artist. Throughout the story, the characters go thru emotions that will grip the reader and make them feel like they are feeling their emotions.
There are moments of love, loss, heartache, horror and complete laughter. True to her writing style, H. Ward leaves the reader wanting more at the end of each volume with a huge cliffhanger on what will happen next. The best thing of this book is that you don't have to wait for the next one, you have it in your hands already. Absolutely loved Anna's and Cole's story and wish that there would be a small story that shows us where they would be now. Jan 15, Joanna rated it it was amazing. This is one of the most engaging series I have read from HM Ward.
She brings her characters to life in a way that snags the reader from beginning to end!

It never seizes to amaze me Once I started Anna and Coles story, I literally couldn't put it down.
It was filled with so much raw emotion and sexual tension that I was stirring in my seat ready to burst at the seams. I loved the way the forbidden relationship between Anna and Cole played out and how self-controlled he maintained to be. He did however finally give Anna a moment of the pleasure she was so craving from him It never seizes to amaze me He did however finally give Anna a moment of the pleasure she was so craving from him.
Only to have her touch herself in the most intimate way while he watched from the side-lines, starring into her eyes. After having her splayed out on the bed on all fours he tasted her from behind bringing her to a near sexual combustion. The scene is so erotic and emotional for Anna.
