Excerpt: 

 My head tilted back, and I leaned on his chest. His thumb continued, now sliding up and down my forefinger. Tiny swipes back and forth, each one like a flame licking my hot skin. My fingers tingled with the need to touch him back, but I couldn’t move.  All the noise from the other rooms seemed to fade away as he held me there. And even though I didn’t know who he was, I felt at home in his arms. Like it was where I belonged. “Close your eyes, Hadley.” My eyes slid shut upon his command. “No peeking.” I nodded, keeping my eyes tightly shut as he spun me around, facing him. My lips parted slightly as he reached up and cupped my face in his hands. I held my breath, anticipating whatever he was going to do next. My pulse raced as the seconds ticked by. God I hope he kisses me, I prayed. “I want you to do something for me, Hadley.” “Okay,” I murmured. “When everything is over tonight. When the last guest has gone home and the lights are all out. When you’re back in your dorm and the world is quiet, I want you to glance out your window and look out at the stars. At how brightly they shine down from millions of miles away. And then I want you to remember what I’m telling you right now.” He moved his face against mine, his breath like a warm caress against my cheek. “You, Hadley, shine brighter than them all. You radiate beauty and warmth and passion and determination.  You put them to shame, Hadley.” I sucked in a breath as tears pooled at his beautiful words. And just then, when I was filled to the brim with so much emotion I could explode, his lips came down on mine. I sighed in contentment as his warm and soft lips pressed against my own with the briefest of kisses, leaving me craving more. But before I could even flutter my eyes open, he was gone.

  THE SECRET CRUSH Synopsis: 

 I’ve been in love with Hadley Monroe for three years. Over a thousand days. But Hadley doesn’t see me. Not the real me, anyway. It’s time to change all that. I need to show her—convince her—that we could be more than friends. That we are actually perfect for each other. It’s time to put it all out there. Risk everything before it’s too late. It’s time for a grand gesture. It’s time to reveal that I’m her Secret Crush.  

  Praise for THE SECRET CRUSH: “It’s like Clue but with love.” –I’m A Book Shark  


4 secret stars



Hadley starts getting little gifts with notes from a stranger calling himself her 'secret crush'. Along with her best friend, they're trying to discover who it may be. It could be anyone around the campus, even her ex boyfriend, but all the signs show that it could also be one of her friends. 

Her secret crush, is afraid to make a movement, being always close to her, but also out of reach. He's scared to reveal his feelings, because he doesn't know how she would react about it and how things would change for them afterwards.


"Right now I was in the friend zone, and I needed out. I needed the grand gesture to make her see me as she'd never seen me before."




I really enjoyed this and for a short read, I thought it was really good! It didn't drag on the whole situation, so a novella may be the perfect length for this storyline. I loved the mystery around the secret crush, I loved that it actually caught me off guard and the author succeeded to surprise me and have me calling 'I didn't see that coming'. The dual POV was really good, because we could see their thoughts and feelings about the whole situation, without being revealed his identity.



What I loved the most in this novella?? It was written in such a smart way that we didn't have a clue about who was the secret crush until the big reveal and I was surprised,finding out about it along with the heroine. 



I just wish I had more details about the hero and the heroine, to know what they look like, to see more into their past or maybe future. I'm a greedy little thing and after this sweet novella, I think this couple should get maybe a book about their relationship? Just saying..



A really sweet & romantic read , perfect for this season of the year, since the book is also Halloween-themed. Totally recommended if you're into something short and light. :)
