S.E.C.R.E.T. Revealed (Secret, #3)

 The only thing that Cassie Robichaud has ever really wanted is Will Foret, the love of her life. But when Will discovers that Cassie is part of S.E.C.R.E.T., an underground group devoted to helping women experience their deepest sexual fantasies, Will breaks it off. Heartbroken, Cassie dries her tears and devotes herself to helping the latest S.E.C.R.E.T. recruit, Solange Faraday. Cassie also reignites her relationship with sexy bad-boy Jesse, even if he can never love her as deeply as Will did.
Meanwhile, beautiful, brilliant Solange, a local news anchor and divorced mom, has a great career but a wilting love life. She rekindles long-lost passions, going deeper and hotter than any other S.E.C.R.E.T. candidate before her. Will she find what her heart most desires? And when Will realizes he's made a tragic mistake, will Cassie be able to forgive him? In the end, as both women blossom as sexual beings, they also discover that ecstasy and true love are closer than they ever imagined.
SECRET Revealed is the explosive, sensual and sexually-charged finale to the bestselling S.E.C.R.E.T. trilogy. -goodreads 

(I need to start doing my reviews earlier to keep the books straight in my head)

As I said before, this was the final chapter of this trilogy. I still liked the premise, that there was this secret sex society in order to give "older" woman a chance to indulge in their sexual fantasies.

Well Will turned out to be a douche. He couldn't handle the fact that Cassie was basically getting taught to love herself and sex. So he broke it up with her and broke her heart. But that's not all, she still got to keep her job at his restaurant. As well as to be the namesake for his new restaurant.

Umm.. I'm sorry if I just got called a slut for enjoying sex (and basically doing what men do all the time- minus the secret society bit) I would not want to continue working with him. Its hard enough seeing an ex post something on facebook let alone work with him every day and night. But...maybe that's just me.

Anyways, in this book the newest, and possibly the last S.E.C.R.E.T member is Solange, a very successful single parent, who let her love of sex be put aside. I liked her character. A strong independent women, who knew exactly what she wanted and wasn't afraid to go after it (specifically in her career). She also wasn't sure if she made the right choice of divorcing her husband, and being part of the S.E.C.R.E.T helped her realize this.

I give this book 4 stars. It was a satisfying ending, with some satisfying sex scenes.   The only thing I didn't really like was the back and forth nature of Cassie. Both with Will and Jesse, but it all worked out in the end. Well to my liking. Actually I was shocked with one particular pairing... did not see that one coming at all!
