My Secrets To Keep is a royal contemporary academy romance. It is inspired by the Twelve Dancing Princesses Fairy Tale.
Please note: My Secrets To Keep is written in British English and is set in the UK where the legal drinking age is 18.
I’ve been enjoying Laura Greenwood’s books so far, so when she released this book I decided to buy a copy. This is the first contemporary romance book I read by this author and I really enjoyed this one. This book is told from the point of view of Sophie, she’s a princess attending Rosewood academy, where everyone is the son of a king, duke or high ranking person. While at the academy she falls hard and fast for Lucas, but he’s keeping a secret form her that might ruin their relationship if it comes to light.
I liked Sophie, she liked to study and get good grades, but on the other hand she also liked to party and have fun. I also liked how while she’s a princess it never goes to her head and she feels like a pretty normal person. That’s one of the reasons she falls for Lucas as he treats her like a normal person instead of caring for her status. I also liked her friendship with Charlotte and how they become close friends quickly and are there for the other.
Lucas was such a nice guy and I liked how respectful he is of Sophie. They really made for a great couple and I liked reading about the dates they go on and seeing them grow closer. There is some drama later in the book when Lucas’ secret comes to light, but I thought it was handled well and made sense how the characters acted. I also like how they get over it and how Sophie is the one to bridge the gap after it. I like how they both apologize for their role in it. The epilogue is sweet and gives a hint of their future.
To summarize: This was a fun sweet romantic read. I liked Sophie who while she was a princess felt like a normal person. I thought it was interesting how she liked to study as well as party. I liked her romance with Lucas and reading about their dates, they made for a great couple. There is some stuff they have to work through when Lucas’ secret comes to light later in the book, but I liked how that was handled. All in all this was a great read and I look forward to more in this series.
