Book Blitz and Giveaway: Secrets That We Keep by Linda Kage

Title: Secrets That We Keep
Author: Linda Kage
Publication Date: January 28th 2021
Print Length: 446 pages
Genre: Contemporary Romance
~
Gracen Lowe has a new life theory:
Which is exactly why he decides not to tell his twin sister, Bella, that he’s accidentally falling for the woman she hates most, the very woman who allegedly cheated with Bella’s last boyfriend and broke them apart.

Bella might be his best friend and ultimate confidante, but she’d legit cut off his favorite body part if she knew which woman he’d been craving. So even if his theory’s totally whack, staying quiet will definitely keep him safer.

Except he feels so guilty about it all.

Meanwhile, Bella’s heating up the sheets with one of Gracen’s best friends, and she can’t seem to reveal that little detail to her brother either, due to—you know—reasons.

When the truth is exposed, all bets are off. Shattered secrets will either set everyone free or wreck their relationships forever.

EXCERPT:
“He reminded me a lot of you, actually,” I decided suddenly.

“Me?” That perked my life coach to immediate attention. With a lift of his brows, he said, “Oh, so you’re saying he was incredibly handsome, huh?”

I laughed and shook my head. “You just had to go there, didn’t you?”

“Wait, wait.” Squinting at me and trying to read my thoughts, his mouth fell open with a horrified gasp. “You think he’s better looking than I am? EL! What the hell?”

I rolled my eyes. “It’s—oh my God. You’re ridiculous. Comparing the two of you would be like comparing apples and oranges. Because you’re all raw and rough and masculine, while he’s—”

“Feminine?” he guessed dryly.

“No. He’s like—I don’t know—cultured. And smooth.”

Gracen was like pure art.

“Ah…” My life coach drew out slowly. “You mean, he’s a pretty boy.”

I sighed in defeat over the entire conversation and just gave up by answering, “Yeah. Sure. He’s a pretty boy.”

“Well…” He lifted his hands as if there was no hope for me. “I guess, if you’re into that type, that’s fine.” Then he lifted an eyebrow. “But, seriously, on a scale of one to ten—”

“He’s a twelve,” I blurted in a rush. “Definitely a twelve.”

Eyebrows arched as if impressed, he nodded. “Okay, then. Pretty boy’s a twelve. And a gentleman hero, too. How the hell does that remind you of ME?”
