Book Review: The Secret (The Evolution Of Sin Book 2) by Giana Darling

I was so excited to start reading this book that I got a bit disappointed due to my high expectations, though I still liked it a lot.

I don’t want to give too much away but I didn’t like a few things that Sinclair did and that bothered me all throughout the story.
The characters were so believable and real but I hated Elena. I don't know why she disliked her sister so much though I believe that she envied her but still that’s no reason to be such a bitch towards her younger sister Giselle.
(Since I also have an older sister and we don’t get along too well, I was biased but Elena was still a bitch in my opinion.)

The writing was so great that I could really feel the attraction between Sinclair and Giselle. It was hot even when they just looked at each other. There was so much tension.

The Story:
Elle just came back from Mexico where she had an amazing affair with a great guy she’s sure to never see again since she doesn't know anything of him and left him without goodbye. As shocked was Elle when Sinclair was suddenly standing in her mum's kitchen in New York City.
Elle hadn't seen her family in a couple of years and when she finds out who Sinclair’s darling girlfriend was, her family reunion is overshadowed.
How can she deal with Sinclair being so close and not allowed to touch him? How will this unfold? Will their affair be discovered? How will Sinclair react to this situation?

I liked that Sin did not just drop everything at once to be with Elle but I still didn't understand that he stayed with Elena when he obviously wasn't happy with her anymore. Though he explained it to Elle closer to the end why he stayed with Elena and it’s more comprehensible now for me.

I absolutely loved Cage and I am so curious about Cosima and her mysterious guy. Also Sebastian deserves happiness, I felt bad for his situation. I have this feeling that there will be some turn of events and bad stuff coming along in the third book and I can't wait to read it!

The ideas of Elle’s paintings and her show are so great. I wish it was real so I can go and see it. The tension between Elle and Sin was reachable and it is no wonder that some people picked up on it. I was surprised though that Willa noticed it and threatened Elle.

I liked the characters but I don't understand why every guy (Cage, Santiago,..) was instantly enamored and pulled into Elle’s charm. Even though I liked that she wasn't consciously charming anyone it felt just too much that every guy wanted her.

-- I received an ARC of this book from the author through the Fifty Shades Support Group on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review. -- 
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
