Book Review - Third Life by Noelle Adams

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK First time. Second chance. Third life. My first time was with him--one hot weekend with a handsome stranger. It was supposed to be a one-time thing, but he keeps asking me to meet him all over the world, and I keep saying yes. I don't know anything about him except his first name. That's the way he likes it. He's too old for me, and he's hiding secrets, but I'm not going to be able to keep my heart out of it for long. REVIEW This is one of those stories that catch you off-guard.  I was expecting a sweet and easy read, but what I got was actually a complex story that sucked me in from the beginning and didn't let go until I finished.  I really liked learning about Richard and was invested in learning more about the mystery surrounding him.  I recommend for anyone looking for a quick read with good characters and fans of Noelle Adams. OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS! MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy ABOUT THE AUTHOR Noelle hand
