I received this book book in exchange for an honest review. I have given The Secretives by Lena L. Whiteside two out of five stars ⭐️⭐️
When I first read the description of The Secretives I was intrigued to get into this story and see where it leads to. Unfortunately, I struggled to get into this book mainly due to the editing of the book. Words were used in the wrong form, there were grammatical errors and the story itself was tilted which it made the overall experience difficult to connect and enjoy the story.
I tried to put the editorial hand aside from this story and managed to become interested in the story around 40% of the book. Especially the action scenes, as they felt captivating and were packed with action. I think they would’ve flown a lot easier if the writing style and editing wasn’t as challenging.
I liked how the story dips into the past to give the reader an overall look into the lives of Charles, James and Quinton. I enjoyed finding out what happened and why certain events turned out three way they had.
