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.

This was very heavy on the Suspense and very low on the romance. Hunter, our hero is my favorite type of protective alpha this author is known for but we couldn't see too much of the romance because he left 6 years prior to keep Alexis safe. He worked for the DEA and ended up being blackmailed to get involved into a very dangerous mission.
This book picks up 6 years later when he comes back home to make sure his enemies were not targeting Alexis only to find out that she was pregnant when he left her and and is now engaged to be married. When he catches a man breaking into her home, he will do anything to keep her and his son safe even if he has to work with her fiancé.
Because of Alexis being engaged when Hunter came back, that really hindered on the romance aspect of this story so we saw more of the suspense part where Hunter has to make things safe for Alexis and his son. Personally, I would have loved it more if we didn't have the fiancé in the mix. I think we could have seen Hunter and Alexis be free to reconnect. But, I did still enjoy this as a suspense book.
