    I m a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of Karina Halle so it ll come as no surprise that I couldn t wait to read this book Unfortunately, it just did not work for me I m pretty devestated to admit it but I just didn t enjoy it I never felt the magic between Olivier and Sadie Of course I felt the sexual chemistry but I never bought into the rushed insta love, I never got what made Sadie THE ONE for Olivier I also found the drama so completely Over The Top It was all just too crazy to be believed It simply didn t feel like Karina Halle to me and I felt both disconnected and indifferent the entire time I m heartbroken over it honestly as I m ALWAYS swept away in her stories, captivated by the fierce romance and the captivating storylines I just didn t feel any of that with Discretion Im so unaccustomed to NOT enjoying this auth...

    A review copy was provided by the author publisher via Netgalley OMG I absolutely LOVED this book Discretion is the first book I have read by Karina Halle and it won t be my last I don t know what has taken me so long to pick up her books I have many sitting on my kindle.This book had a little bit of everything in it, there was romance, humor, heartache and suspenseful drama I loved the characters we met in this story Although she did give us some that I didn t like so much, but that s what adds the tension and drama to the story I thought the flow and pace of this story was perfect The secrets were revealed at the perfect time Just when the reader is getting comfortable the author springs something new on us.This book held my attention all the way through It was a fairly quick read but that is only because I didn t want to stop reading once I started.I really hope we ge...

    I adore Karina Halle s magical storytelling ability as with each of her stories I get swept away by the romance, passion between her characters and the absolutey gorgeous emotional connection between them The feels alone always have me addicted by the first chapter I felt this exact way when reading Discretion as Olivier and Sadie have a whirlwind romance filled with steamy sex and secrets that had me addicted from their first glimpse of one another Without giving away any spoilers when the mysterious Olivier Dumont meets Sadie Reynolds in a dangerous situation, he is completely taken with the young American traveler But as they get closer and spend time with one another, Sadie figures out who Olivier Dumont really is and the dark secrets in his past and the family skeletons some members of his family are hiding Overall, I enjoyed this story a lot I enjoyed the chemistry and passion between Olivier and Sadie but di...
