WOW...Ella Grace's Debut MIDNIGHT SECRETS Sizzles and left me wanting MORE!!


On a hot southern night, with a storm on the horizon, a family is shattered. Three beautiful daughters—Savannah, Samantha, and Sabrina Wilde—go on with their lives, each significantly changed, as they bear the memory of the murder-suicide that killed their parents. For years, they have stayed away from Midnight, Alabama. Until Midnight calls them home.

Savannah is the first one back, when a grueling case in Nashville leads the young prosecutor to seek shelter in the quiet of the once grand Wilde mansion. But when she finds letters casting doubt on her family’s dark, shameful past, she realizes that peace in Midnight is a shallow fa├žade and sinister secrets lurk beneath the surface. Zach Tanner, once the town’s bad boy, is now the new police chief and still has a wild hold over her. Zach can feel it, too, but he hurt Savannah once. As teenagers, they broke every rule together. Now it’s his job to keep her safe, even though he isn’t sure who her enemies are—or which ones might be his own.

You better be ready to spend the whole day reading, because I swear, a few paragraphs in...and I was HOOKED!!  And might I just say....Zach Tanner....YUMMOOOOOOO!!  Fans of Christy Reece will understand when I say that there are just some authors who know how to write a HERO...and Ella Grace sure knows how to write a HERO!! 

Zach, the town "bad-boy" and Savannah Wilde "good-girl" start a "burn hot and fast" kind of romance after he rescues her at the school prom.  Promises are made and broken and ten years later, with some pretty big SECRETS between them, they are somewhat forced together again in hopes of cracking open a 20 year old murder.  But let's just say that the town of Midnight and the people who call it home, have no plans on letting that happen, especially the people who have been keeping the SECRET since that horrific night. 

First, I can't even imagine being in Savannah, or her sisters places, with what they went through as children and then to find out it all could have been a lie.  Well, that is just some serious shit right there!  Let me just say...LOVED Savannah Wilde...her sisters, Sammie and Bri are great too and I can't wait to see where Ella takes their stories, but Savannah was just sweet and pure and just SO IN broke my heart.  Ella keeps you guessing the WHOLE time, dropping little hints here and there....keeping you on the seat on your chair.  I was DYING to know what happened ten years ago between Savvy and Zach, and I was shocked to find out the's a definite OMG moment!

The chemistry between Zach and Savannah...whew....I don't think it could have burned any hotter...and it was NOT because they live in Alabama where it was 100+ degrees...believe me...they made PLENTY of heat on their own!! prepared to fall head over heels for Zach Tanner...I already have him on my Top Heroes 2013 list, cause he is ONE FINE MAN!!

The suspense kept me on my toes, the romance was heartbreaking and addicting, and the sex...well....that was just "Cold Shower Required" Smoking HOT!!  Ella Grace is bringing "Romance" back to the Romance Suspense Genre.  Just LOVED IT!!
