Secret Hunger by Satin Russell is the story of Olivia and Mason. After her parents died, Olivia took on the responsibility of both her younger sisters. She raised them and put their futures first. Her dreams and aspirations took a back seat. Now both of her younger sisters are moving out of the house and Olivia finally has time for herself and her future. As a cafe owner and cook, she wants to move forward, but does she have the courage? When someone is stalking Olivia, she finds a savior in Mason. He is a detective in Boston. He may be a savior for Olivia, but he has demons in his closet too. Can these two let their pasts go and move forward?

I loved this sweet, beautifully written romance. This was a great read; I loved reading about Olivia and her struggles to get free. The chemistry between Mason and Olivia was very poignant. When things get tough, Mason is there for her, and the best part is that she lets him in. I really liked that fact. It was written perfectly. The dialogues were very nice and the descriptions were very good, especially the descriptions of winter. Also, I would like to commend the way the author portrayed Olivia’s struggle. Being stalked is no fun, and Russell showed how a person feels when it happens to them in detail. I really liked this novel. I hope there is more in this series; perhaps we will get to see Olivia’s sisters in future books?

Although this book is not part of my typical reading genre - either "Romance" or "Suspense" - it pulled me in thoroughly. Well developed, carefully detailed, and downright hot. Masterfully crafted and can't-put-down readable.
