Can You Keep a Secret?

Three different covers, one book… Maybe that should have been the first clue that this book wasn’t for me. But once again, my review of this book is a far cry from the norm. Most people actually enjoyed reading this book. I just wasn’t one of them.

Synopsis:
Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets: Secrets from her boyfriend: I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken. Secrets from her mother: I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur. Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world: I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is. Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger.…Until Emma comes face-to-face with Jack Harper, the company’s elusive CEO, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her…

Review:
The first chapter had me chuckling with easily relatable situations aligned with humorous view on them. It was a little difficult to follow everything being said based on cultural differences. The book has a ‘Bridget Jones Diary’ kind of flow and feel. Everything from the embarrassment, mishaps, and uncomfortable experiences. Honestly, I couldn’t do it. The book was too much and felt like a scene from Bridget Jones. Where’s the uniqueness in that?

This book was not for me and will forever remain in the DNF Graveyard…
