    4.5 stars I read an ARC of the prequel book to this one earlier this year and I liked it, but I didn t love it as much as I was expecting to I was intrigued by this book though, so requested an ARC and started reading it as soon as I had come back from my holiday After reading this book, I can say that I felt the same way about it as the prequel book and I can be honest and say that I actually enjoyed this bookthan the prequel book I felt like I wasinvested in the plot and what wa 4.5 stars I read an ARC of the prequel book to this one earlier this year and I liked it, but I didn t love it as much as I was expecting to I was intrigued by this book though, so requested an ARC and started reading it as soon as I had come back from my holiday After reading this book, I can say that I felt the same way about it as the prequel book and I can be honest and say that I actually enjoyed this bookthan the prequel book I felt like I wasinvested in the plot and what was going to happen next for the characters The plot of this book was easy to understand and I sort of knew what was going to happen because of the synopsis and the title of the book lol The plot did develop at a nice pace and it was interesting and slightly different to what I was expecting I enjoyed it though and felt like there wasto it than the plot to the prequel book This book was left at the perfect ending for the characters too The characters were also amazing and made the plot that bit better Kelsey was the main female character, and in this book she went through a lot and had some tough decisions to make I felt like Kelsey tried her best in this book to deal with her changing circumstances I also felt for her because she did feel like she was picked on by her family and they didn t understand that it hurt Kelsey I was also able to connect with Kelsey in this book and she did try and tell her love interest what was going on, but things kept getting in the way Aaron was the main male character and love interest of Kelsey Aaron worked hard in this book and he had a respectable job and had done well for himself He also seemed like a nice guy Aaron also had a reason for doing the things that he did and the choices that he made and he could always justify his reasons It was also easy to see that Aaron had deep feelings for Kelsey, but he felt betrayed by her and it took a while for him to realise that she had her reasons for not telling him I loved that this book was written from both Kelsey and Aaron s point of views I was hoping that it was going to be because the prequel book written from dual point of view, so I m really happy that this one was too The synopsis also gives the impression that it s going to be written from dual point of view It helped me connect and understand Kelsey and Aaronand it allowed forthings to happen in the plot, especially as the main characters didn t spend every minute of the plot together and went through some situations on their own I m not sure if there s going to be another sort of prequel book to this one, but I would read it if one does release I also still have quite a few of this author s other books to read, so I can t wait to check them out and see if there s some that sound interesting I also love the cover for this book a lot It suits the feel of the book and I love that this cover matches the cover for the prequel book The cover image is very cute too and the models suit the characters of Kelsey and Aaron Big thank you to Montlake Romance for an ARC of The Secret Baby
