Favorite Quote: “No judgment. No limits. No shame.”
Cassie Robichaud’s life is at a stand still. Grief and guilt over her husband's death has put her in a prison of her own making. A prison of loneliness and sorrow. When she finds a notebook a customer leaves behind, her curiosity leads her to read it and suddenly she finds herself shocked and titillated by it’s erotic telling of a secret society and the fantasies the author has enjoyed. When the author comes back to retrieve her journal, Cassie learns that the mystery woman is part of a secret club called, appropriately, S.E.C.R.E.T. A club for women to explore their sexually in a safe and controlled environment. Cassie is invited to join the club and soon embarks on her own personal journey towards self fulfillment and empowerment through a series of individual fantasies.
S.E.C.R.E.T. is a coming of age novel that while erotic in essence, concentrates more on the emotional, mental, and sexual awakening of our protagonist, Cassie. Told in the first person, we are given insight into her personal thoughts and feelings throughout her journey. She is told to write down ten fantasies and they will be made possible by the club. Each fantasy revolves around the concept of acceptance and healing.
