Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the carnal world of...His Secret

Young and innocent, Julia Ellis has no idea what awaits her at the manor, where she is to become the nanny for Mr. Jonas Fairbanks, a ruthless, yet devastatingly handsome entrepreneur. Julia's only plan is to earn enough money to fund her studies of French cuisine in Paris.

Julia falls in love with little Sidney, the 10-year-old daughter of Jonas, but can't help noticing the peculiar way the towns people talk of the little girl. An omen. The devil's spawn.

Sidney is not the only young girl who will be groomed at the home of Mr. Fairbanks. What was taught as sinful, now, clouds her moral judgment of right and wrong. Julia fights with her innocence, giving into lust and a world all new to her. She loses all control, when she can no longer deny her attraction to Jonas. But no matter how much she feels love for this man, hidden deep in the house, tell a different story of his past...and what he's capable of.

Twists and Turns abound!

Where does His Secret: The Secret Series rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the top audiobooks I have listened too.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like Julia because of her innocence, but I also liked the growth of Jonas

Have you listened to any of Tracy Marks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have. Tracy does a wonderful job.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

When the tangled web of Secrets are undone, no one will be untouched!!

Any additional comments?

I waited to write this review until I listened to the second book in the series, Her Secret. I felt the first book left several unanswered questions and I wasn't sure how I felt about that. But all is revealed in book 2. The author Gina Jones has told an intricately woven tale with may of the lines twisting and turning together. As the secret starts to unravel, the reader is left with questions and wanting answers. The book ends with a cliffhanger that will take your breath away. But don't worry! Gina has a plan and your questions will be answered!!!!

Where does His Secret: The Secret Series rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Since this is part of a series with cliffhanger, is hard to give an honest answer. However, I did like and enjoyed it!

Who was your favorite character and why?
Julia and Jonas the same.

Have you listened to any of Tracy Marks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Tracy Marks is one of my favorite narrators and each performance is unique. Performance: 4.5

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I don't like cliffhangers, so I rather wait until the series is complete to give you a fair answer!!

I really loved and enjoyed this intense, engaging, suspenseful and fantastic story full of twists and turns. Expect the unexpected!!

OMG!!!! THIS BOOK!!!!

First off, I'm completely blown away! Gina sucks you in from the very first page. This book has it all! Romance, intrigue, mystery, and swoon-worthy moments will consume you.

His Secrets was a fresh story. It's exactly what I needed. Gina allows you to see things as a reader and all you want to do is scream at the characters. Hell, there were moments I wanted to reach in and slap a few. I can't give this book enough stars!

THE ENDING...I mean that ending. I'm just warning you'll want to throw your device against a wall or immediately one click the next title which I did. Yes, Chapter 1 is playing while I'm writing this.

As far as the narration, Tracy Marks is one of my favorites. She nailed this story. Every character's voice portraying their true character.

Fantastic!

Wow, what a listen! This has a classic gothic feel with great characters and plenty of suspense and twists to keep things interesting. On a personal note, I loved that the main locations in Indiana were about 30 minutes from where I grew up and so I could easily picture the locations! Amazing performance from the wonderful Tracy Marks, she really brought the characters to vivid life with unique voices for each character. I can’t wait to find out what happens next in this series! I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

I now love Romantic Suspense!

This book had me from the first chapter! I spent the entire time unsure of everything, questioning everything and everyone...even myself and what I thought was going on! The romance in this book is perfection! Julia and Jonas's story is so well put together and Gina created some intense twists that had me HAVING to know and on the edge of my seat! I finished the series in a week, which is unheard of since I am so busy, but I could not put this down!
Definitely a great listen and one that I will talk about for a long time to come!

This is one rollercoaster you want to ride!!

If I could write this review in a twisty, curvy way, it may describe this book better than just written words. There are so many questions to be answered, so many suspicions raised. There was no way to put this book down until the cliffhanger end. As I get ready to load up the next book in this series, I need to take a breath. Breathing is not an option in this fast paced, rollercoaster ride.

Julia wants so much more with her life. But going to school in Paris is her ultimate goal. She has followed her calling, helping others until a nanny job may be her answer to reach her goals.

Jonas is a single father who wants the best care for his daughter while he works. He entrusts her to nannies to be cared for since he has to travel.

When Jonas and Julia meet, there is instant chemistry. But that is only the beginning to the turmoil, struggles, and hot romantic scenes in this story. Just when you think you figured it out, the road curves again!

Traci Marks narrated Julia to perfection. Ms Marks was able to bring out every emotion and feeli g With ease. Ms Marks was able to distinguish each character With different tones to make the story easy to follow. With her narration, Ms Marks made this book come to life. Ms Marks narration enhanced the total experience.

Intense

The book left me wanting more. The last two words were not what I was expecting and now I need to know what happens next. The characters were captivating and I still don’t completely understand Jonas. I look forward to book 2 in the series.

Secrets Are Meant To Be Told

Julia is Jonas nanny and she enters into a relationship that she is not fully sure about but puts her trust effortlessly in others. Jonas is determined to keep his secrets no matter the cost. This story will make you mad but always guessing until the end.

Trust nothing!

This story had me questioning everything. It is not a typical romance for sure. It did start a little slow for me but then the intrigue set in. Jonas has many secrets and Julia is just trying to understand.

Great beginning, full of intrigue

This was a great story full of intrigue and secrets that you know are going to come out but you aren't quite sure what they are! I felt the story started a little slow but it made you fall in love with Julia and some of the side characters so I think the gradual build was necessary to keep you invested. I will say that you don't get the answers to any of your questions in this book so you will definitely need to listen on to the next story in this series otherwise it will drive you mad! There was just enough balance to the romance and sexy bits for me in relation to the story. Tracy Marks did a fantastic job of bringing all the characters voices to life with a bit of drama in all the right places! Can't wait to listen to the next one now.

Amazing

I loved the storyline and found it really engaging with characters I instantly fell in love with. This is the first book I have read/listened to from this author but it most definitely will not be my last.

The narrator handled the story very well, was quite clear and had that special innocence to their voice which portrayed the main character perfectly. The only issue I have is that they are a little breathy on the end of their sentences.

All in all a fantastic audiobook!!!

A secret 5 star story

This is my first story by Gina Jones . This story has lots of twits and turns . It’s full of mystery and will have you sitting at the edge of your seat , wondering what’s next .
This is book 1 in the series. . Be prepared for a great listen

Hero is Jonas. Heroine is Julia .
Julia is a very religious lady , who is living with a religious couple when her life changes .
Julia is hired to look after a shy little girl. The girl has no friends and Julia is trying to interact with Sidney and draw her out . Julia has a hard time once Sidney starts to open up because Sydney has mood swings .
Julia and Jonas have an attraction to each other that was felt right away . BUT Jonas has a secret. Won’t tell you .
Grab book 2 to find out this does end in a clif hanger

Tracy Marks was great . She played all the characters great. She showed the emotions of the characters . Her voice is strong clear and steady

my favorit narrator

well. sometimes I say yes I would like to listen to a book and review it. I always go in blinde. never look at the book before. never look at who the narrator is. So what a Nice surprice to finde it is my favorit female narrator Tracy Marks. She brings this book up from a 3 to a 4 star. She is AMAZING.
The story. I felt like I was listening to a mix between Rebecca and Jane Eyre. And that Should be a good thing. But it was placed in the wrong time. all the mysteri felt out of place. I kept thinking nobody is that naive and out of the loop in modern day. I dont Know for sure. But it felt like the maine caracter was not the smartest person in the world. And that irritated me through the book.
Its not like i didnt like it but at the same time it wasnt that catching as I wanted it to be. Maybe had I listened at another time i would have liked it more.

interesting book

There was so much I enjoyed about this book. I couldn't give it a 5/5 because there were things that just didn't add up for me. I liked the characters for the most part. What I didn't get was how Julia could go from being uber religious to living a life of "sin". How she could go so far outside of her convictions the way she did and only feel a little guilty for a short second. I understand falling in love and experiencing it for the first time and how it can change your life, however I just don't see it changing you so much you walk away from everything you believe. I thought Jonas was a interesting character. I didn't like him so much in the beginning because he was so detached from his daughter. The other reason I couldn't give this book a 5/5 across the board is because I could see the twist at the end of the story coming from a mile away. It didn't really take away from the story itself but I like the mystery to be a little more mysterious. The cliffhanger at the end does make me want to read more even though I saw it coming. I enjoyed the narrator. She has a pleasant and easy voice to listen to. I could listen to her read books all day. I look forward to starting the next book in the series.

3.5 Still Have Questions Stars

I really wanted to love this story, but I think I ended up with more questions than answers, and I’m not sure that I am invested in the story enough to carry on with the series.

We first meet the MC Julia living with a very religious family, and also being very religious herself, up to the point where the first meeting with the Jonah was with her on her knees on a public boardwalk praying with her hands in the air praying out loud to God.

This would be fine, except for the fact that this religious aspect of Juliette's life sort of falls away throughout the book, does Instalove make you loose your religious beliefs?

The child (Sidney) that she goes to look after seems to range from little girl, to moody teenager.
She is portrayed as this awful child and called the Devils Spawn from other parents, and this is never really explained why, i'm assuming that it may be explained in book 2 ?

Jonas i did not like, Julia was a sweet little virgin, so being thrown into this situation and having Jonas seemingly emotionally abuse her felt a bit icky.

Narration was expertly done and i'm sure that i will get to read book 2 sometime in the future, but i won't rush out to get it just yet.
