Keeping Secrets ~ Book Review

About The Book:
Have you ever loved someone and didn’t even know it?
That’s the dilemma facing Felix Essien when he wakes from a coma to find he is married to the most beautiful and sensual woman he’s ever known. He cannot remember her or their wedding; he who had sworn never to get married or to give his heart to another. Yet, he feels an intense bond with her that he intends to explore fully.
Ebony can’t believe her good fortune when her paper husband wakes not remembering the temporary marriage arrangement with no intimacies he’d proposed, and is now the adoring husband she’s always dreamt of.
She plans to make the most of the passion blossoming between them. However, would he still feel that way when he regains his memory and realises she’s been keeping secrets and their marriage is not what he thinks it is?


This book just had too many unanswered questions. The fact that the main character had a remarkable recovery from a six-week coma. Flex made a full recovery, except for a bit of temporary amnesia.  They both agree that the marriage is a business exchange and Ebony was perfectly fine with it; because she just got dump by the man she was supposed to marry. This was all supposed to pretend in front of the media, I get that part they got married for convenience purpose. The part I don’t get or made sense to me if you have amnesia and don’t remember your wife or even getting married then why go along and believing she is your wife?  

I really couldn’t understand why add the amnesia if now Ebony want to be close to Flex, and didn’t tell him the truth about the marriage even if she had also agreed to do this just to help him out. This book was painful to read., Ebony is tortured by the secrets she hides from Felix, which he will find out from his close staff or if his amnesia kicks in. Flex hates secrets and lies, but the author would have done better if Flex was trying to find out who and why did they got married instead of having a lot of sex.
It pains me to see that Ebony didn't talk to Felix about their little setup, unless she really did want to be with him in the first place. What was her plan? It made no sense for her to try to hide anything.

I wanted to love this book if the author would have played more into the amnesia.

I will probably try another Kiru Taye in the future, but this book didn’t do it for me.
