Publisher's Summary

Note: This novel is on the serious side compared to Lila's usual work because Josie, Pick, and Billy have had hard lives. It also contains a m/m/f relationship and a little m/m.

For 18 and over!

Moving to Melbourne for university, Josie Alexander knew the transition would be hard. She didn't realize just how difficult it'd be until things turned ugly. Damaged by a past that leaves her struggling with physical contact, her brave move to start afresh soon turns into a nightmare.

Afraid and vulnerable, Josie's fragile independence threatens to unravel around her. That is until the two men who refuse to leave her thoughts show up in Melbourne.

Caden Adams, "Pick" to his biker brethren, has had a hard life. His only light is Josie, whom he loses when she leaves Ballarat for Melbourne. Dealing with day-to-day life without his heart is hard, especially with the darkness threatening to consume him. When MC president Talon informs him that Josie's in trouble, he's determined to make sure he's there to protect her. Only he won't be doing it alone.

Eli "Billy the Kid" Walker has never experienced love, not even from those who should have cared the most. Only Josie and Caden have ever come close to infiltrating his hardened heart. With Josie gone, he pushes Caden away, unwilling to take a risk, even if it's something he wants.

When given with the opportunity to prove to each other how they really feel, will they all be able to have the courage to fight for what their hearts desire? Above all else, will they survive the fallout when their secret's out?

New author, great story!

This was the first book by this author that I’ve listened to or read. This story is actually a book in a series about Australian biker MC and I enjoyed it a lot. It’s also a ménage story, just FYI. The narration was good, I just had to get used to the accents. The story was about a girl with a past of sexual abuse who is at college and being tormented by a guy who is bullying her because she won’t date him. She’s the sister of the MC presidents wife, so he sends two guys to her to straighten it out. They have both been in love with her for years, and she loves them too but is emotionally scared because of her past. The author gives us lots of drama, romance, action and sex. Very good book, now buying the rest of series in audiobook.

One of my favorite series

Let me start by saying I LOVE audiobooks. I have listened to almost 200.
I was very happy to see this when it was released. While I enjoyed this book (already read the series several times).
I think it would have been much better if they started with the first book. There is so much back story, it would be confusing to not know why Josie is scared of everyone. It doesn't get discussed until you're really into the story. If you knew the backstory, you would be fine.
The other thing I think would have made it better is to have a 2nd male narrator. This story is about 3 people..Josie, Caden, and Eli. The male narrator was used for both men. It was hard to tell who was "speaking" because of this.
The problem I had with the woman narrator is the fact that she spoke so slowly...I felt like pulling words out of her mouth.
Keep in mind this story takes place in Australia, so the narrators have an accent. I got very used to this and it wasn't a problem.

Overall, I enjoyed this book, it just needed a little tweaking to make it a great read (listen).

Meh.. 😒

This book was not what I was expecting in a sexy biker romance. Rarely do I give up and turn the book off, but this one was unfinishable for me. It was a combination of writing and the narration that just wasn't working. I'm sure someone out there will get into it. I just wish I hadn't wasted the last 3 hours trying.

Good story, lacking ending...

This book was cute and sweet and OH SO HOT! I dont know if this is a popular opinion, but its mine, and thats the point of goodreads, isnt it? To share our opinions.
I really liked the way the three characters grew by themselves and with each other. I just would've liked a little bit more action, and maybe more interaction between the three of them outside the bedroom, because inside, it was explosive!
Caden and Eli were good complements of each other and the fit well with Josie and her understandable shortcomings. I know the story might be far fetched but it was fun and entertaining, which is what I look for in books like this. Im definitely checking the rest of this author.
I just have one complain story-wise: the ending was lacking! I wanted more!!! Like I said, more action, maybe more interaction among them (especially the two male characters).
And about the narrators, I really liked him, although I would've liked to have two, one for each male character. And her, wow, she has the greatest accent and her rendition of other characters is amazing... but... was it just me or she narrates TOO... DAMN... SLOW!!! I had to listen at 1.20 speed just to get rid of my annoyance over that.

Don't bother

I'm not sure what was the korniest, the writing or the narration. Possibly the narration, especially the narration for Pick. Don't waste your time.

Loved it!

Would you listen to The Secret's Out again? Why?

What does Paul Casteri and Tarny Evans bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

At first I had a bit of trouble with the narration but only because an Australian accent isn't something I hear often. About 5 minutes in and it didn't phase me anymore.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried quite a bit towards the end. It was very sad and I didn't appreciate the author insinuating that the hero died. Other than it was a great read.

Narrators spoke sooooo slowly.

Thanks s book could have been done in 2/3 the time. It was painful to listen to. Loved the accents. Writing was uneven and the painfully slow narration only made it worse.

MC in Aussieland

This was the first book of this series that I’ve listened to and, while it can be a stand alone, it seems like it would be enjoyed more by reading the whole series from the beginning. Which I will do- I’ve already checked out Holding Out, older sister Zara’s story. This one has the younger sister, Josie. As there is a very emotional event in the family, I think you would appreciate it more from the beginning .
Recommend if you like MC with HEA; but not under 18, preferably 21, as this is MFM & MM. This story is MC as family, with some badass, but not evil.
Love the Aussie accents! Casteri & Evans did a great job with narration.
