Virginia (Secret Confessions: Sydney Housewives #1) by Rhian Cahill



Reviewed by Tabatha


I think that this was a unique spin on the idea of a serial anthology. With this first round we are being introduced to each in a group of wealthy Sydney housewives that meet twice a month. The catch with each of these friends, is that each harbors a secret. For Virgina, the first of the group, she is secretly divorced and none of her friends or family know anything about it. It's almost like she leads a double life.  I think this shows just what kind of friends she has, but it also shows how deeply private of a person Virgina is too. She goes each week to a bar seeking out no-strings attached sex to release all the tension that builds up from her real life that she knows is completely fake. The bartender, Carter, has watched her for years, but he finally works up the courage to go after what he wants. And what he wants is Virgina in every possible way.

These two were explosive in the bedroom, but I also have to say that I loved their tender moments as well.  Carter seemed to know just how to handle Virgina, and he really showed how much he cared about her because that was something sorely lacking in her life.  He doesn't push her, but allows her to slowly warm up to their new relationship to the point where she is ready to open up more.  We are left with a happy for now ending, but I'm definitely looking forward to reading more with these two.  I've loved every short story I've read from Cahill, so I can't wait for more.

*I received a review copy from the publisher/author via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.*
