Juliette Stanton is ten minutes away from vowing to love, honor and cherish a scheming mobster-connected liar.
For the rest of her life.
And so with the media watching her every move, the high-profile senator’s daughter flees her own wedding. Dubbed “Chicago’s Runaway Bride,” Juliette needs somewhere to hide out, and heal her broken heart. So she heads to a “fantasy island” and pays big bucks for anonymity and the chance to meet an honest man who’ll love her for who she really is. Total fantasy, right? Day one, she falls for tall, dark-haired, ocean-blue-eyed Doug Houston. He’s everything she’s ever wanted. Except he’s not exactly who he says he is, either….

My Thoughts

Secret Fantasy by Carly Phillips is a typical light romance read.  For me what made it a bit unique was the way that Juliette and Doug, who previously seemly ruined her life by outing her now ex-fiancee’s mob links, meet.  Juliette’s sister sends her to the island where dreams are supposed to come true.  This was about the only really interesting part of this book.  

This book was super short and had very little plot.  If you are looking for a simple sexy read this might be a good choice but we aware that this is reprint and is only 200 pages long.

My Rating

This book was okay.

*This book was purchased and all opinions are my own.
