Book Spotlight: Secret Betrayals

About The Book

Purchase at Amazon.com

Jasmine Reeves has it all - a good education, a cool job, a man who loves her and a man she loves too. Unfortunately they're not one in the same. After falling hard for her friend's husband, Jasmine has to figure out what direction her life is going to take. Should she stay with her faithful but lackluster boyfriend of five years or should she allow herself to continue to be played by the man who has her heart - even if it means stabbing her girl in the back? When what happens in the dark ultimately comes to light, will she hide her nasty secrets or will she expose them for the world to see, despite the consequences?

Toya Johnson loves the luxuries of life and has no problem using the world's oldest profession to obtain them. However, when she unexpectedly finds the man of her dreams, she can't seem to shake the past that keeps coming back to haunt her. Addicted to the money and power that accompany her lifestyle, Toya keeps telling herself that she'll only do it "one more time". Will she ever get out of "the life" and allow herself to experience the "happily ever after" she's always wanted or will the past refuse to let her go, taking her down with it?

Chante Summers has a handsome and successful husband who provides for her in every way. What more could a girl want, right? Unfortunately some people are never satisfied. Bored with the housewife routine and a husband whose bedroom skills are less exciting than a can of paint, Chante has no choice but to satisfy herself in other ways. But when the close calls and drama become too much to handle, will she be able to give up her extra curricular activities or is she too addicted to thrill, even if it threatens to destroy her? When lust, deceit, and betrayal collide, will these three women have what it takes to overcome it? Or will they be destroyed by the flames of their own disturbing, dangerous, and possibly deadly Secret Betrayals.


Can anyone really have a true friend? I'm talking about a friend that you can trust and one that will have your back in any given moment. In Secret Betrayals, author Harriet Wilson introduces readers to Jasmine, Toya, and Chante, three women who will make you want to rethink the meaning of friendship and falling in love. Jasmine Reeves loves her boyfriend, Brian, and she knows he loves her too. She has everything going for her, so why does she feel the need to step out of their relationship for excitement?

Toya Johnson is used to the finer things in life and does not mind working for it, the old-fashioned way. When one of her clients goes overboard, Toya realizes that she may be in over her head. After meeting Shawn, a lawyer that loves to shower her with love and affection, her life takes a change for the better. Chante Summers' husband, Josh, takes very good care of her and their children. Unbeknownst to her husband, Chante has private sessions that she refuses to let go of since Shawn's bedroom techniques need some work. However, Shawn has a secret that will bring out the worst in his wife, that is, if she finds out. In this entertaining book, one of these three women is keeping a secret that just may destroy their friendship.

Secret Betrayals is a book about dealing with foolishness. The author creates a suspenseful atmosphere with continuous action that jumps out from every page. Readers will have no choice but to become engrossed in the unbelievable and exciting characters along with an unexpected ending. After reading about the lengths of deception these three main characters dove into, readers will judge, laugh, and be surprised. I definitely recommend this book to others.
