Public Secrets 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers
  Public Secrets
 5 of 5 stars false 
Emma. Beautiful, intelligent, and radiantly talented, she lives in a star-studded world of wealth and privilege. But she is about to discover that fame is no protection at all when someone wants you dead.

All Emma has to do is close her eyes and she remembers the day Brian McAvoy swept into her life. A frightened toddler, she didn’t know then that she was his illegitimate daughter or that he was pop music’s rising new star. All she knew was that with Brian, his band mates, and his new wife, she felt safe. And when her baby brother arrived, Emma thought she was the luckiest girl in the world—until the night a botched kidnapping attempt shattered all their lives . . . and destroyed Emma’s happiness.

Yet now, even though Emma is still haunted by flashes of memory from that fateful night, she has survived. She’s carved out a thrilling career and even dared to fall rapturously in love. But the man who will become her husband isn’t all that he seems. And Emma is about to awaken to the chilling knowledge that the darkest secret of all is the one buried in her mind—a secret that someone may kill to keep.


  Emma has spent her entire life growing up in the spotlight, her father Brian has been a rock star for as long as she can remember. She still has flashbacks of the night her little brother died and while she did see what happened she can’t remember. Emma marries a man that she thought she loved, even though she is still hasn’t forgotten the son of the detective who investigated her brother murder. The man abuses her and when she gets away she runs into the detectives’ son who is now a detective himself. Michael remembers teaching Emma how to surf and has wanted her for a long time. When he finds out about the man has hurt her he does everything to protect her. When Emma finally starts to be okay someone finds out that Emma is starting to remember what really happened to her little brother. I loved this book; they main characters meet several times before they finally get together. Emma has to go through some really rough things to get a good place with a good man. The back story with the rest of the band members is done really well. It shows what hardships rock stars have and how when they play into the stereotype it can really ruin everything. The romance aspect was not overplayed and the who really did it parts added a bit of mystery. The book had a nice slow and even pace.
