Secrets: A Tisha Ariel Nikkole Novel #4 – a Review

Do you keep secrets from your significant other? Does he or she keep secrets from you? How damaging would this be to a relationship?

Shout and Tisha are no longer together, but it is Shout’s own fault for choosing his murderous father over his fiance. That had to hurt. So Tisha is starting life anew without Shout, and she finds another guy to love and to be a father to the child that Shout had no clue she is carrying.

On top of all this, Tisha is investigating the appearance of a deadly drug in nightclubs. When she and her partner discover who is making and distributing this new drug, it complicates matters even further.

Shout starts life over again too, but he chooses the wrong female to hook up with. He chooses one that comes close to destroying his life and everything that he has and holds dear. His new project is to break into television. With his popularity, it shouldn’t be hard to make his new show a hit. Because of other things going on his life, instead of becoming more popular, he comes close to losing his life.

He really needs Tisha to rescue him (again), but is he too proud to admit that he was wrong? These two were made for each other. Will they ever learn? Secrets, no matter how small or how large they are, erode the trust in a relationship.
