This book was very enticing. Yes this was erotica but it was so much more. It was a journey of self-discovery. Cassie a widow at a very young age who got stuck in a rut and not knowing she is in a rut. She has hardly any self-confidence (if any at all), and beautiful just not in her eyes. Then there is S.E.C.R.E.T... A group of women who help women discover their sexuality and confidence in themselves. I love this group. Matilda was a wonderful women and an excellent guide for Cassie. I loved reading and seeing how much Cassie grew into the real her after each fantasy. The men weren’t that bad either. Some of the fantasy weren’t my cup of tea. To each their own. I cried just a little at the end. I won’t say anymore because that would spoil the ending. Very good book!
