ARC Review: SECRETS by Aleatha Romig

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen aboveground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

*Secrets is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy.

★★★★☆

There is just something about an alphahole that really gets my juices flowing. They're so sexy and dominant, apparently all-knowing and all-powerful, and they know how to make demands and have people jump-to like no one's business. 


Sterling Sparrow was an enigma. After reading an entire book about him, I still know very little about the man. Aside from his seeming obsession with Araneae and keeping her safe and piecing out the secrets bit by bit, I know virtually nothing. He's rich, he's taken over the family business after his father's death, his business is both legitimate and illegitimate, he owns a jet, and his sex appeal leaks from the pages. Oh and he was an alphahole to beat many alphaholes. Humina humina!


Then there's Araneae herself. She was smart and independent. She had suffered some huge losses and learned how to roll with the punches and taught herself to be self-sufficient. She also had the amazing ability of not being rational while believing herself to be rational. Huge events were happening around her, at first without her knowledge, but when she was made aware of the dangers she faced, she still thought she could handle things on her own. But she couldn't see things for what they were. So why continue to assert that you were quite capable of things that were beyond your abilities? Drove me nuts!!

"Araneae, I wish you'd get your priorities straight. Someone set your apartment on fire. An unknown man is trying to reach you, the plane you were supposed to be on crashed, and you're worried about bears."

Thank you so much Sterling for pointing out the obvious. I only wish it were obvious to her. Araneae can't see the forest for the trees. So smart and yet so... It's okay. I can't expect her to be perfect in all things.


After being left to cling onto a virtual cliff, I'm looking forward to learning more about the secrets of Sterling and Araneae's past and how they affect both their present and their future. I'm especially eager to see more of the man who is quickly becoming one of my favorite alphaholes.
