BOOK REVIEW...[ARC] Midnight Secrets (Wildefire #1) by Ella Grace
The first in its series, "Midnight Secrets" tells the story of Savannah Wilde. Savannah, one of triplet sisters, was always known as the shy and reserved one of the bunch.
When she's rescued by troubled and secret crush Zach Tanner, her life is immediately turned upside down. That is, figuratively, when he leaves town for the military and breaks her heart in the process.
Ten years later pass, and Savannah finds herself a prosecuting attorney in Nashville and returning home for the first time in years. Zach, who is now the town's Police chief, encounters Savannah and the fire they once had is once again ignited.
However of course, trouble lurks around as an old secret surrounding the deaths of Savannah's parents is brought forth to speculation and Savannah finds herself in the middle of an investigation that may cost her and those closest to her their lives...
The beginning was a tad slow but as the story went on it definitely picked up to a nice and enjoyable pace.
I loved the relationship between Savannah and Zach. They both come from troubled pasts but I like how they mesh and fit together.
I also thought that the book's synopsis was also a bit misleading about Zach's character. It says that Zach was "once the town's bad boy" and he wasn't. When I think of "bad boys" I picture hot, cocky, playboys.
Although it is implied that he may not have been a virgin when he had got together with Savannah [since she in fact was a virgin], he was not a playboy type of character. Zach is definitely an attractive guy but he just came from a troubled household where he was ridiculed as the town's son of Jezebel and had a nonexistent father. Nothing more than that.
BUT MOVING ON...
