REVIEW: The Secret Kept from the Greek by Susan Stephens

Susan Stephens’ The Secret Kept from the Greek is entertaining and sexy, but the love story lacks depth making it difficult to believe or connect with.

Damon Gavros and Lizzie Montgomery meet and have an instant and intense connection. They are fiercely attracted to each other and end up in bed that night indulging in a sizzling one-night stand, but they only share their first names. The next morning, both are shocked to discover that their fathers know each other and are currently in a court battle to prove Lizzie’s father defrauded Damon’s. Her father is found guilty, and Lizzie is horrified she had sex with Damon, and she is angry with him over her father’s verdict.

Damon and Lizzie do not see each other for eleven years, but neither ever forgot their night together. Their lives have gone in opposite directions. Damon has achieved extraordinary financial and business success, and Lizzie is happy but works hard to support herself as a dishwasher at a restaurant. They see each other again and find their attraction is just as strong as it was years ago, but Lizzie has a secret that could threaten any kind of reconciliation. She became pregnant after their one night together, and Damon has a ten-year old daughter that he doesn’t know exists.

Damon and Lizzie have terrific chemistry, but it is difficult to believe they share any kind of emotional connection after just one night together eleven years ago. When they see each other again, their feelings of instant-love feel disingenuous, considering they are virtually strangers. Something felt missing. Both characters are likable, but I could not get a sense of what they saw in each other. There are sexy and heartfelt moments in The Secret Kept from the Greek, but it the love story lacked substance.
