Trading Secrets

 Trading Secrets

Celeste is a high flying financial wiz. She’s  smart, rich, demanding, sexy, and beautiful. She and her business partner Savin pulled off a big insider trading deal to ruin Celeste’s brutal and possessive boyfriend Omar after Omar beats and rapes her. They thought they had gotten rid of Omar, but now he’s back and wants revenge. 

Celeste is an interesting character, but not exactly likable. I’m all for strong female characters, but she doesn’t have much substance. She’s just rich and raunchy. When she finally meets the mysterious and suave Theodore, he seemed liked a a creepy stalker to me. And their relationship seems a little one sided. He was way into her and she was thrilled he was rich and great in the sack. For as demanding as Celeste is and with all the resources she has at her fingertips, she never knows how he makes his money or much about him. When tragedy strikes, Celeste is convinced Omar is behind it. She comes up with a hair brained scheme to bring down Omar once again. And that’s where this book really lost me. Her plan just didn’t make sense to me and the story kind of bogged down. And the big twist- saw it coming a mile away. 

This just wasn’t my cup of tea. I did like all the world travel to beautiful places and luxurious hotels. It seems like it’s better suited for fans of Sex in the City and 50 Shades than me.  ⭐️⭐️⭐️
