Would you try another book from Katie Reus and/or Viv Williams?
I really don't think I could handle another book like this, if it's an indication of her writing. The story was so implausible, and I could assess that in the first few chapters.
Has His Secret Past turned you off from other books in this genre?
This book was in a genre of its own. I love a good romantic suspense or mystery, but this was neither.
Would you be willing to try another one of Viv Williams???s performances?
I don't know.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from His Secret Past?
Well, I'd start with the scene where the bad man tries to rape & kill the heroine. When the hero, her long-abandoned-one-&-only-true-Love and the father of her child rescues her by rushing in and killing the bad man, he tells her she's in danger & there are more bad men coming to kidnap her & their son. Instead of fleeing, she stands in her house arguing that she's not going anywhere with him until he explains where he's been for the past 5 years. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention this scene takes place immediately after she gets out of the shower, and is wrapped in only a towel. All while the hero is remembering her lush round figure, long legs, etc. etc. This scene goes on for a while and takes place in the early chapters. It only gets worse from there.
Any additional comments?
I always rate the books I read, but I've never written a review on any of them. I decided to write this one if only to save some other unsuspecting listener the loss of a credit. I wish someone had warned me.

In this audiobook, Ms Reus , takes us on a rollercoaster ride in which you are not sure if you want to get off when it stops, jump before it does, or just plain stay on it if it means staying alive!
Hunter Cassidy disappeared 6 years ago and left Alexis Baptiste, the love of his life, alone , and unbeknown to him, pregnant. He believed that was the only way to keep her safe. He was an undercover DEA agent who was betrayed by someone in the CIA . Hunter has spent these 6 years in the jungles of Panama , undercover with the worse of the drug cartel, in an effort to clear his name. Being undercover has changed him. When things get hotter than hot , he returns to the USA . He fears his CIA nemesis will try to get her in order to get him to give up the evidence he has accrued. Hunter ends up revealing himself to Alexis and in the process, finding out he is a father.
The three end up running for their lives. Who can they trust? Where can they hide? And will Hunter be able to keep them safe?
It’s a story with a very complex plot , well developed and imperfect characters, bad guys, and good guys who MIGHT be bad. In the midst of all this drama, the love between Hunter and Alexis is palpable. Will they live long enough to get a second chance?
Another thriller by this talented author that should not be missed.
I would be at fault if I fail to mention that the narrator does an excellent job in differentiating the voices .
I was gifted this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
