Gilded Secrets by Maureen Child
Review of Gilded Secrets by Maureen Child

5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "Defending His Legacy…At Any Cost
When scandal threatens the luxury auction house that bears his family’s name, Vance Waverly suspects the media feeding frenzy is an inside job. Could his gorgeous assistant, Charlotte Potter, be plotting Waverly’s downfall? There’s one way to find out: seduce the truth out of her!
Charlie is between a rock and a hard place. She can reveal Waverly’s secrets to her unidentified blackmailer or lose custody of her child. Whatever she does, she’ll lose the career she loves. But losing the man she’s come to love—her big, bad boss—could put her over the edge…"
I wasn't sure I was going to like this story, but after meeting a brooding Vance and a cheery Charlie it was easy to fall into Gilded Secrets by Maureen Child. I love how Vance and Charlie stand out as characters, but also seem to be the only ones standing out in one another's lives. The mystery of this story certainly will hold readers attentions, but what I found I was most drawn to about this story was Vance and Charlie. I love how they click and everything else that happens around them is mute when they are together. I love how Vance loves Jake and plans for a future before he even realizes it. I give Gilded Secrets by Maureen Child 5 smirks because the chemistry and the relaxed nature the characters have with one another it truly a spectacular thing.
