Carnal Secrets is a contemporary romance novel written by Nadia Lee. This was the first work that I have read from this author and I loved the book. Nadia Lee captured me through her writing.
Nadia Lee did a great job with the storyline. She weaved a wonderful story with Carnal Secrets involving a passionate romance, betrayal, lies, corporate espionage, and carnal secrets. I loved everything about this book; the pacing, the characters, the plot, the angst, the sexual tension, the drama, and the characters. Natalie and Alex were well developed characters. The plot was also well-developed along with the storyline. It pulled me in emotionally and gripped me right from the beginning.
Self-made billionaire Alex Damon wants his pound of flesh from the people who ripped his family apart. When he discovers that his enemies’ daughter is working at his company he decides to start by seducing her. What should’ve been a straightforward eye-for-an-eye unravels as her unflinching loyalty and gentleness start to thaw his cold intent. But caring for her is unthinkable since he plans to use everything in his power to ruin her, her family and everyone else she holds dear.
Natalie is an Asian woman, adopted by a wealthy, conservative, white American political family. Not only does she know nothing about her heritage and biological parents, her adopted mother is downright cruel and doesn’t make it a secret that she can’t stand Natalie. Not only is there no sisterly bond between Natalie and her younger sister, she constantly does everything in her power to hurt Natalie as well as her dad, a busy politician. He isn’t really present and when he is, he doesn’t really care. Natalie’s childhood was lonely and loveless and to make it worse, she doesn’t really know who she is and where she stands in the world. But despite her difficult background Natalie managed to become a strong, independent and capable young woman.
I enjoyed Carnal Secrets and highly recommend this for readers looking for a charming and captivating romance to get lost in. This book will keep your attention. I hope to read more from this author in the future.
Thank you Nadia Lee for a wonderful storyline.

Laurel Cremant is an opinionated author and reader of romance with a wicked sense of humor. RNIC was smart (or crazy) to bring her on as a blogger. In 2016 she took over the management of this site and relishes her new title of “Overlord of Awesome”
