Secrets of Euphoria continues V. B. Emanuele Club Euphoria series. My journey into the Club Euphoria world so far has been interesting, and it left me curious as to what next was in store. Well, Secrets of Euphoria delivered more than I expected. Suspense and drama were present as expected, but with them came a daring and edgier experience.

Ah! Secrets of Euphoria is my favourite of the series. As much as I enjoyed the previous books, it didn’t have the vibe I have come to expect from dark mafia romance. However, Secrets of Euphoria delivered all I expected. Readers are once again transported into the world of exotic dancing.

Jade and Luke, the main characters featured in this instalment, were present in the previous books. During those moments, no one knew of their intimate relationship. So it was a pleasure to learn this would be their story. Not only was the story my favourite, so too were the couple.

I knew there was more to Jade than her being a personal assistant to the owner of Club Euphoria. The woman was a badass. One could definitely see why Luke found her so appealing. Their chemistry was off the chart.

In the previous books, one sensed an edge of danger to Luke, and in this instalment, readers get a front row seat to how dangerous he could be. He’s definitely not a man to mess with. We see the steps he takes to protect those he loves.

This book was definitely on fire🔥. When I say fire, I am referring to the action, suspense, and steam factor. The author definitely upped the ante on three elements.

To really enjoy this instalment, one would need to read the previous books, and the events in all three are interconnected. Secrets are revealed and in an unexpected turn of events, the connection between the characters came to light. Talk about a plot twist, I definitely did not see it coming.

There were some heartbreaking moments which, impact heavily on the lives of the affected individuals. I am guessing more will be revealed in the next instalment.

Overall, Secrets of Euphoria delivered an exciting instalment with action, suspense, steam, and character development. It kept me wanting more of this world. I look forward to the next instalment.
