Deadly Secrets – The Kinncaid Brothers #5 by Jaycee Clark


REVIEW – Updated 07/05/18

The last of the books on the brothers, but not the last in the series, focuses on Quinlan Kinncaid.

It has been a year since Quinlan was hospitalised thanks to a woman and life just hasn’t been the same. A trip to New Orleans with his brothers is set to change things again for Quin.
Ella Ferguson appears carefree and full of life when she literally bumps into Quinlan in a store. One thing leads to another which results in a drunken weekend in Vegas.
Ella has been here before, married to a rich boy, and can’t face the hurt it will inevitably bring, so instead she leaves. Everything spirals out of control when Ella learns she is pregnant, the FBI wants her help, and her work want her baby. When all else fails, Ella finally gets the courage to contact Quinlan but it could be too late.

This book is slightly different to the rest as it is written in a non-linear format, giving twists and turns as you read.
Ella’s character isn’t as strong-willed as the other female leads but this works well with Quin’s character because, let’s face it, he isn’t as forceful as his brothers.
Once again Ian shows his true character (love him).

Although this is the final in the Kinncaid Brothers series there is a prequel/sequel novella based on the meeting of Jock and Kaitlyn. Definitely worth a read to finish off the series.

Previously read on Kindle. Listened to via Audible. Narrated by Johanna Parker


Secrets can hurt . . .

Bitter and resigned to a life alone, Quinlan Kinncaid swore he’d never marry—until the eccentric Ella Ferguson barged headlong into his life. But before he can trust his own feelings and build a new life with Ella, she’s gone, and he’s left with a secret so big he can’t even bear to tell his own family.

Some secrets can destroy. . .

Ella Ferguson is as independent as she is beautiful, and though she knows rich boys never last in the long run, she doesn’t see the harm in a fling with Quinlan. After their amorous weekend threatens to become a lifelong commitment, she runs, figuring it’s better to put Quin and her past behind her. Then Ella discovers a secret of her own, and telling Quin may rip both their worlds apart.

And some secrets can kill . . .

What neither of them realize is that a malevolent man knows Ella’s secret, and he’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants. Afraid for her life and more alone than ever, Ella must learn to forgive herself before she can beg the forgiveness of the one man who can save her. Now it’s up to Quinlan to overcome his stubborn pride in time to save Ella and the only thing that matters.
