Secretly More (2011)
What if the one you love IS the one you’re with…
Jay Navarrete has been in love with his best friend Kimber York for years. When she ends her frustrating long-term relationship with an apathetic musician, he decides the time is finally right to tell her how he feels.
But Kimber has an agenda of her own, one that doesn’t include returning Jay’s feelings. Instead, she’s eager to make up for lost time by becoming more sexually adventurous. Her mission leads her to an upstairs bedroom at a wild party, where she agrees to be blindfolded and await a mystery lover. Although Jay knows it’s wrong, he’s unable to resist the opportunity to be with her.
But Jay soon finds himself in a complex tug-of-war between his integrity and his heart, one that threatens to ruin everything between Kimber and him—especially when she falls hard for someone else: her mystery lover.
Praise for Secretly More
“What makes Zakari’s work so palpably erotic is the tension which she imbues her characters and their situations with. The desire overwhelms the base, animalistic sex and heightens the experience for the readers, forcing them to not only engage with the characters and their lives more fully, but also with their release… Secretly More is an exciting, modern novel filled with lust and desire. It is a novel that readers will want to savor, allowing the characters and their issues to build slowly, until they erupt in an erotic frenzy…” — Joshua Gage for Oysters & Chocolate
