Our Little Secrets starts out with Charlie finding a new town to settle down in now that she has escaped her step-father and all of the things she had to do in the past. She meets Michael West a very strange man who thinks up a business marriage for the two of them. Charlie agrees to it because she knows it is a way to keep her safe from her past. Along with this agreement they are not suppose to ask each other questions about their past. That seems to be a mistake they both regret asking of each other. Through out the book I was totally thrown for a loop when it came to finding out the secrets each of them had. It was crazy! I really liked how all of that turned out in the end. However the lead male drove me nuts. Seriously it was like he had two different personalities, and it just really put me off of the book. One minute he is charming nice man, then he is a total shrimp when it comes to defending his friends against certain people. I just couldn't get past that. Then the heroine seemed like a total hypocrite at times because she wanted Michael to spill his secrets to her but she wouldn't tell him anything first. Then when he told her how he felt, she didn't respond and left him to figure out things on his own. I just got really frustrated with the character's in the book so that made it not as good as it could have been to me. Overall it was an okay book, not great but not bad.
