Book Talk: Dirty Secret by Rhys Ford

DirtySecretLG I had the honour of meeting Rhys Ford recently. We write for the same publisher and I had a chance to go out for dinner with the author. It was an interesting and entertaining experience, for sure. I'd do it again.

Now, about the book. I had already read the first book before meeting Rhys, and thought it was fantastic. After the meeting, I find now I can definitely hear the writer in the prose. If anything this has me appreciating book two even more. Plus, there is the way this narrator voices Jae-Min's voice. It's positively sinful.

Rhys has created some great characters, too. Like Mike, the main character Cole's brother. He is awesome. So very  awesome. I'll tell you what. When he stood up for Cole, I wanted to stand up and cheer. I maybe did a little fist pump in the air. It was epic. I was a fan.


Then Rhys did this thing that had me texting Mary with "Why????? Why, Mary, why do that?" Of course, I can't tell you what it was, because as River would say:RiverSongSpoilers

I will say, at about two thirds of the way to the end, I'm really enjoying the read.

ETA: I know why now, because I finished the book, but holy hell! It was terrible and wonderful all at the exact same time. Not so very many authors can manage that, so go Ms. Ford. Can't wait for book three.
