He’s the popular jock everyone loves. Funny, gorgeous, with a flock of girls to choose from.

While I’m the girl no one notices. Bullied. Antisocial. I have no friends and I like it that way.

Until he walks into my life.

We shouldn’t be friends.

We definitely shouldn’t be roommates.

That doesn’t stop him though.

When friendship blooms into something more I’m not sure if I should hold on or let go.

I’m hiding things, secrets so dark, and deep….

If he ever discovers them I’m certain he won’t want me anymore.

But as I fall harder and harder for him I start to wonder if maybe I judged him too soon.

The popular jock and the girl that none notices, this can’t possibly end with a happily ever after it, can it?

*This is book three in the North Woods University Series. It can be read as a complete standalone and contains NO cliffhanger, NO cheating, and a HEA. Please be advised this series contains sensitive material not suitable to all readers. This is NOT a YA series.**


The Secret by J.L. Beck and C. Hallman was a beautifully captivating and emotional love story that shows that there is always light beyond the darkness, you just sometimes need the right person to help lead the way. This incredible writing duo took me on a journey full of emotions that left me completely surprised by each new unexpected twist and turn that they threw our way.

The Bet was good, The Dare was amazing, but The Secret was absolutely phenomenal and hands down my favorite book from the North Woods Series to date. Ever since meeting Clark in the first book I have been eagerly anticipating his story and let me just tell you all that these two totally delivered! Clark and Emerson’s story is a heartwarming friends-to-lovers romance that wholeheartedly captivated my heart and had me swooning from beginning to end. Their story took my breath away and had me falling head over heels in love with this unlikely pair. Although complete opposites, these two couldn’t have been more perfectly matched for one another. Their love proves that there is someone out there for every one of us, we just have to be willing to fall when the time comes! These two beautiful souls helped heal each other and I can’t stop thinking about them and their story!

I strongly recommend checking out this book, even if you haven’t read the first two books in this series because they can be read and enjoyed as standalones! I also cannot freaking wait for The Vow because I NEED Sebastian’s story like RIGHT NOW!!!
