A Secret Wishes Novel
By: Robin Bielman
Sale Price of $.99 for a Limited Time

Sela Sullivan is resolved to be the best maid of honor ever, even if it means tolerating the best man. Insufferable, too-handsome Luke Watters is not only the guy who humiliated her at a kissing booth in high school, but he also happens to be her best friend’s older brother. Positive he’s the same arrogant jock, Sela vows to focus on her duties and steer clear of the frustrating—and frustratingly tempting—Luke.
As a world-renowned extreme-sports photographer, Luke is used to undertaking life-risking adventures. But risking his heart for the beautiful Sela Sullivan, who clearly still hates him for his rejection all those years ago? He didn’t see that coming. Sela inspires a passion he’s never known, and the more time they spend together, the more he craves her. But can he prove to the maid of honor he’s become a man of honor?

Review: This book was so cute. Sela and Luke have a not so good past. Well, Sela has a not so good past with him. They both, though more Sela than Luke, focus on something that happened in their high school days. (I have to admit I'm always a little wary of heroines that carry and torch and a grudge for guys that hurt them in some way...but in Luke's case it was just some thoughtless thing he said as a kid)

Still it made for some friction between the two, besides the chemistry that is so obviously there from the start. And there are some scenes that will leave the air in the room sizzling, like when they are at the cake tasting and the bachelorette party.

Sela and Luke are two very different people. She's a nurturing type, a nurse at a hospital's pediatric ward and Luke is a dare devil photographer. He's come home for the wedding after a accident that could have killed him.  Opposites?  Maybe, but these are two people that need each other.

The only thing I wasn't keen on was the whole thing that kept them apart and caused the stupid comment that both characters carried with them since school, the whole being friends with the other's sibling.

This is the second book of Robin's that I've read, and I really like her writing style. If you haven't read from the Bliss line, it is similar to Harlequin's Romance line. The stories are sweet and not too spicy. Robin leaves it to your imagination, but still manages to light up the pages with some heat.

It is a sweet contemporary romance that is perfect for a sunny afternoon of reading.
