I’ve been in love with Hadley Monroe for three years. Over a thousand days.

But Hadley doesn’t see me. Not the real me, anyway.

It’s time to change all that.

I need to show her—convince her—that we could be more than friends. That we are actually perfect for each other.

It’s time to put it all out there. Risk everything before it’s too late.

It’s time for a grand gesture.

It’s time to reveal that I’m her Secret Crush.

Okay this is the first book I have read of Sara M. Ross and I can tell you will most probably read more of her books….. This is one cute novella and such and easy and fun read. I have always been a fan of a dual POV. I FELL IN LOVE THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT WAS ONE SHORT, SWEET BOOK and had you guessing who the crush was up until the end.

When it was the secret crush talking you would not know who it was you just saw Secret crush instead of his name.  Now this book took place in Hadley’s senior year at college. Now Hadley found out that she had a crush by the sweetest gesture of cute notes and gifts. As you would figure she started to get frustrated trying to figure out who her crush was but the crush was always one step ahead of her.

In the end I loved who turned out to be her crush. They were both great together. All I want to complain about is that this book was a little short for me because I wanted some more. This was a fun read and like I said before… this book will keep you guessing who the crush was the entire time and some clues made you think of someone entirely else instead of the crush.

I can’t wait to read more from Sarah! Sorry this is a short review but hard to type out a long review at work. Still a good book and  I will recommend you to go and read this great novella!


The Secret Crush - RDL Teaser 2



My head tilted back, and I leaned on his chest. His thumb continued, now sliding up and down my forefinger. Tiny swipes back and forth, each one like a flame licking my hot skin. My fingers tingled with the need to touch him back, but I couldn’t move. All the noise from the other rooms seemed to fade away as he held me there. And even though I didn’t know who he was, I felt at home in his arms. Like it was where I belonged.

“Close your eyes, Hadley.” My eyes slid shut upon his command. “No peeking.”

I nodded, keeping my eyes tightly shut as he spun me around, facing him. My lips parted slightly as he reached up and cupped my face in his hands. I held my breath, anticipating whatever he was going to do next. My pulse raced as the seconds ticked by. God I hope he kisses me, I prayed.

“I want you to do something for me, Hadley.”

“Okay,” I murmured.

“When everything is over tonight. When the last guest has gone home and the lights are all out. When you’re back in your dorm and the world is quiet, I want you to glance out your window and look out at the stars. At how brightly they shine down from millions of miles away. And then I want you to remember what I’m telling you right now.”

He moved his face against mine, his breath like a warm caress against my cheek. “You, Hadley, shine brighter than them all. You radiate beauty and warmth and passion and determination. You put them to shame, Hadley.”

I sucked in a breath as tears pooled at his beautiful words. And just then, when I was filled to the brim with so much emotion I could explode, his lips came down on mine.

I sighed in contentment as his warm and soft lips pressed against my own with the briefest of kisses, leaving me craving more.

But before I could even flutter my eyes open, he was gone.
