Reawakened Secrets by Mari Denae
Publication date: October 26th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Some secrets should never be kept…
Growing up in the servants’ quarters at Haven Hill, Claire Brown was a poor outcast, living in a world of money and privilege. Her only solace was best friend, Alice Sinclair, and secret desire, Jackson Montgomery. Rich and connected, they were perfect in every way and perfect for each other.
Still, Claire was foolish enough to fall in love with Jackson, and desperate enough to hide it. When Alice found out, there was a terrible accident that left her in a coma. Jackson disappeared, leaving New Haven without even saying good-bye.
Ten years later, Claire has managed to build a life without them. So when Jackson calls out of nowhere to say Alice is awake, Claire’s first thought is Thank God. Her second? I’m screwed. Lusting after Jackson destroyed her. It’s nothing compared to what she’s hiding now.
But nothing stays hidden forever.
Reawakened Secrets is part one of Jackson and Claire’s story.
Part 2, Reawakened Sins and Part 3, Reawakened Seduction will be released early next year. To be the first to get information on deals, teasers, excerpts, bonus scenes and release dates, connect with the author on Facebook, Twitter, or Goodreads.

5 “Big girl panties” Stars!
I’m hooked, and can’t wait to get my hands on the next part of this series!! This was a one sitting book for me, and I was done in 2 hours. LOL!! Reawakened Secrets is a quick and intense start to what looks to be an action packed series. During the first installment, we are thrown back and forth between present and past for Claire, Jackson, and Alice, who are all childhood friends.
“Bracing myself for the shock of seeing him, I forced my shaky hand to reach for the door.”
So, here we are with one hot, sweet, and rich guy, and two best friends with the same crush. I got excited at the thought of a love triangle, but for those who hate love triangles, you will still enjoy this story 🙂 I kept waiting for the sparks to fly, good and bad. Their story is filled with many secrets, though. BIG secrets!! And of course, we are left at the end of Reawakened Secrets with the much anticipated secret being told. Then….nothing!!! Grrrrrr!!! It is going to be hard to wait for the next part, and I am anxious to see how things play out.
“I have lived with the possibility of him hating me for ten years. I don’t know if I can deal with the reality of it.”
All three characters are very amazing in their own ways. I am rooting for them all to find a HEA. Jackson is VERY swoonworthy!! And both of the girls are good to one another, which is heartwarming to read. There is none of that back stabbing and caddy high school crap with them…thank goodness!!!
This is a new author to me. I was pleasantly surprised by her writing style, and I can’t wait to get my hands on more of this story!! I am all team Claire and Jackson 😉
My name is Mari Denae
I am a married mother of three and publishing my first novel is a dream come true. As the nerd that went to bed with a flash light to read the books I swiped from my mom’s room, I have always been an avid book lover. My favorites are hot, alpha male heroes (think Kristen Ashley), suspenseful, romantic thrillers (think Sandra Brown) and poignant, sweet love stories (think Abbi Glines or Colleen Hoover). My plan was always to be a writer of some sort, but somehow real life responsibilities got in the way. Now, I am an accountant with a night time writing obsession.
One Saturday afternoon, I took my girls to see the latest teenage movie. Four days later, I had read all four Twilight books. I was inspired by the innocent romance and ‘Edward Cullen’ (don’t judge). Once I found my way to Fifty Shades of Grey, I was a complete goner. All my spare time was spent reading, writing or blogging. After version one million, five hundred and fifty five of my series Reawakened , I’m finally ready to share it and hope that someone enjoys reading the story as much as I have enjoyed writing it. This one’s for my mother. I hope she’s looking down proud because I finally finished what I started.
