Review of Brilliant Secrets by D.L. Raver

Warning! This is an ADULT Romantic Suspense and not suitable for those under 18!

Kissing her made me want her.
Wanting her made me take her.
Taking her made her mine.

Aleksandr Azarov Black is a procurer of lost works of art—he gets the ungettable. Without remorse, he pushes the boundaries between good and bad.

Everything changed the day he met Rylan Archer, the woman his father arranged for him to marry, and the subject of a brilliant secret that Alek must keep. Merely protecting Rylan, however, isn’t good enough; he wants her for himself, and he’ll do anything to make that happen.

Anything except tell her the truth.

Rylan Archer’s life is an epic nightmare. During her last year in college, her beloved mother dies in a mysterious plane crash, and within six months, Rylan finds herself with a stepmother that hates her.

Just when she thought her life couldn't get worse, enter Aleksandre Azarov Black, her stepmother’s half brother. Rylan can’t resist the bad boy of the art world, and she’s willing to put everything on the line to be with him.

Separated by opposite sides of the world, they embark in an old fashioned courtship, sharing their dreams and desires through the written word.

When they finally come together, their passion is explosive and all-encompassing; their connection scorching. But not everyone is happy to see them together, and some will do anything to keep them apart.

Alek vows to keep Rylan safe, but the secret he holds might be the one thing that destroys them both.


I can honestly say this was one of the best contemporary romances I've read in quite some time. It's a perfect blend of mystery, suspense, and sexy romance. This book is steamy, and wow, Aleksander is my new book boyfriend! He's such a great love interest!!!
The mystery and suspense in this book was so well crafted, I couldn't figure out what was going to happen. It was intricately plotted and I absolutely loved how this book flowed.
This is one of those books that I have to highly recommend because it would be a shame to miss it. I would give it ten stars if I could!
