Review #177: Riley's Secret- Christina Smith


Summary: Megan Banks feels like an imposter in her own life; she doesn’t belong with her friends or with her parents, who ignore her. After a fire she’s indirectly involved with, she finds herself with two hundred hours of community service. It’s the charity she volunteers at that finally makes her feel like she belongs. These people, with whom she has nothing in common, mean more to her than her rich, selfish friends. 

But for some reason her supervisor, Nate Green, doesn’t want her there. He thinks she’s a self-centered rich girl who deserves to be in jail. After she’s threatened by the kids who started the fire, Nate and Megan form a strange friendship, built only for her protection. But the more she feels for him, the more he pushes her away.

As they become closer, Megan knows Nate is attracted to her as well, but she also believes that he is hiding something. But she could never guess what he really is. Before she realizes what is happening, she becomes involved in a world she didn't know existed.

In this strange new reality, can she finally find a place where she belongs?

Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review:  I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was the Book of the Month in my goodreads group Reading For Fun. I just finished reading the prequel Riley's Curse and I loved it. I was excited to start this book because I was so drawn into the prequel. I also love the cover. I like do his story as well I was just missing the old world charm that the novella had. I did like that this book read fairly quickly and there was enough action and romance to keep me interested.
I still really enjoyed these characters and I'm glad that Nate finally told Megan the truth. Also I'm glad that Megan made new friends, unfortunately her parents are assholes and you can't pick your family. I really want to learn me about Joe and Lauren and most importantly Mona. I want her story. Is she who she says she is??
Overall this was a great start to the series and I'm very excited to read the rest of the books. I really enjoyed Christina Smith's writing and I will be checking out her other series as well. This is another book I would recommend to werewolf lovers.
