Secrets: Portia's Story by Moody Holiday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fascinating multi-generational story of lies, lust and secrets. The villain's tentacles spread through everyone's lives, yet on the surface he seems to be a respectable man. Portia, the protagonist, is the villain's daughter and the most affected. Her story is tragic and everything she does is acting out her pain. I am unsure whether her story is really resolved or not. I guess it is "to be continued."
The sex was frequent and quite steamy, and the sights, sounds, smells and visceral were uniquely descriptive. The author has a nice way with words. The only thing that distracted me was the head-hopping where the point of view would suddenly change from paragraph to paragraph.
My favorite character was Scuba. That scene at the sports arena has me rolling with laughter. What a riot. I can't wait to read more about her. Yep, she got that right. The role models need help too.
Secrets was a fast read/page turner and I finished it in a couple of hours.
