Keeping Secrets in Seattle - Brooke Moss First of all big thanks to Entangled and Netgalley for the ARC!!! We love free stuff! Overall I loved this book. Spoiler alert we like best friend love here at Page Trotters. Even that horrible unrequited stuff. Mostly because in the end she realizes when she meets the new guy that "Hey, maybe I didn't love my BFF so and so now that I love you!" and boom she moves on and they stay best friends and their boyfriend/girlfriend become friends and everyone is one big quasi-incest family. Yes we are ABC family movie SUCKAHS! Now this book is different. Insomuch as I've never read this spin on it. Here are this situations of BFF love story books. 1. is the situation I mentioned above. 2. they are best friends but never realized they loved each other. 3. they become BFF's during the course of the book and...realize they love each other. Now in this book they have been BFF's since they were six. AND they have previously dated, but crashed in burn because of SHHH! SECRETS!!!! Violet still loves Gabe. Like a lot. Gabe? His emotions are unclear for most of the book because duh duh duuuuuh he's engaged. To the Wicked Witch of the West Coast AH leeees eeee AH. Pretentious ass way to pronounce your name IMO. My bitch-o-meter was going off on this chick.

Anyways, Gabe and WWWC are engaged. And Vi is the Best WO-man. But she's in luuurve with him and he is off limits. Then she meets super cute Landon and they are awesome together and he is the sweetest thing but still kick ass MANLY man. So for most of the book we think it's going to end a certain way and then secrets start coming out about everyone and queue the shit storm. It was like whiplash. I am not going to spoil the ending so you have to read it. *insert shameless plug*

Vi is kick butt. She is curvy and owns her figure. She is smart and loves the shit out of her friends and family. Gabe is HOT, Landon is HOT. The supporting actors are flippin great. It was an all around solid read. BUT because I wouldn't be me if I didn't nitpick a little, here's some stuff I didn't like. I didn't like how Vi treated a certain someone. She didn't handle it well AT ALL and I was so pissed at how things ended there. (See 4 star instead of 5). Also, its an ADULT CONTEMPORARY so why were there fade-to-black's? For those of you who don't know what that is, its when things are getting hot and heavy and then things just fade away. The description gets, well, non descriptive. This book is super squeaky clean in this aspect. I think some kissing happened. That's about it. I'm not saying I need it on every page, but they are adults and I know what happens when a two people love each other and they want to express it. So eh on that part. It wasn't a huge let down because, like I mentioned before, you get caught up in the shit storm.

Will I recommend this? If you want a clean, solid read heck yes I will! I didn't feel like I wasted my time, nor was I dissatisfied with the ending. It's a good breather book if you know what I mean. Sometimes we get bogged down with heavy emotional stuff and we need a break so our feelings don't leak out of our ears and this is perfect for that! So go buy it and enjoy it! Sometimes we need a little Sleepless in Seattle fluff in our lives!!!
