    One thought on “Secrets in the Marriage Bed”

    1. I loved this book! I can see Nalini Singh's distinctive voice and brilliance with romantic relationship and character development. I was so sucked into this book, I didn't want to put it down to eat dinner. I loved how neither Caleb nor Vicki was the bad guy. They were both good people, but their family dysfunction had wired them with defense mechanisms that don't make emotional openness easy in a marriage.I loved how the older hero, younger heroine dynamic (10 year age difference) isn't a mere [...]

    2. I really love Nalini Singh's writing in the Psy-Changeling series, but I don't think her Silhouette Desire books are anywhere near the brilliancy of her PNR books. This was my 3rd SD read by her and I can't say I loved any of them. They weren't bad, but they weren't something to talk about either.Karen, I know I promised to write a review on this book, but it didn't inspired me to do so. Sorry!

    3. I really loved this book cause the issues lack of trust,lack of communication that wasin their relationship was accepted and solved by both characters so wonderfully,for once i m so satisfied with the marriage issues that were dealt by author,gr8 plot,well developed characters and story paced at a nice speed had me glued from first page to last,its one of my fav harlequin presentsCaleb and vicki are separated when vicki reveals that she is pregnant.He convinces her to give another chance,but the [...]

    4. 3.5 Stars Actually I really liked this story, I felt the chemistry between the hero and the heroine, but there were several parts which made me bored Made me want to skip it and directly jumped to the end of the storyAnyway, I pretty enjoyed reading this.

    5. According to many different romance books I read this year,"Secrets In The Marriage Bed," written by Nalini Singh was one of the best romantic book I ever read. This book makes me always in the mood of reading it because the author spend some good time talking about the setting, the plot, and also the main characters. He described them with a good sense of understanding. The main characters mostly spend their time talking about relationships and other things that people should do and what people [...]

    6. This is a wonderful story about the importance of communication. Caleb and Vicki's divorce is stalled by her pregnancy.As they learn to truly listen to each other, to demand that the other truly talk to them, they both grow as individuals and turn a sterile relationship into a stable love match.The sex scenes are not as explicit as others in the Desire line, but so well written and so suggestive that they don't need to be.The best kind of storytely a keeper.

    7. Estoy empezando a comprender que los Harlequines me vienen bien en épocas de exámenes.Nada extraordinario, pero al ser de Nalini es especial.

    8. This was just boring and like another reviewer said, it kept going round and round. Which is Nalini Singh's usual formula so I shouldn't even be surprised. Both H/h's mommy and daddy issues seemed blown up to me as well.But what sealed the deal was that from the start of the book Vicki thinks that her husband of five years, Caleb, has cheated on her a couple months back. Even though their marriage is on the rocks Caleb seems to adore her and from his thoughts you know he loves her very much and [...]

    9. I'm in a sappy mood, so I decided to read this book again. The first time I read it, I found it really uplifting and sweet and the second time through, I felt that same elated emotion of happiness. This was a great read and it also shows you that working hard and talking openly about your relationship, fears, excitement and happiness does help you grow as a person and in your relationship.

    10. I enjoyed this book. It was a second chance romance with the couple married but separated. They still loved each other but had not shared feelings or talked openly in the past. It was nice to see them starting to open up about problems and secrets from their past and learning to communicate.

    11. It was so difficult to finished! The history goes round and round that you get bored reading it! Not one of her best though! :(

    12. Caleb and Vicki/Victoria have been married five years and love each other, but they have some serious communication problems and have reached a massive impasse, which she tackles by declaring she wants a divorce. they might've gotten that divorce if she didn't find herself pregnant.I think this was realistic fantasy, if that makes sensethey demonstrate that it's not easy to kiss-and-make-up when both parties have such deep-seated self-doubt and communication issues - each instinctively going her [...]

    13. This was a great story. A married couple who had to find their way back to each other. The trials they had to go through were quite emotional but served to make their relationship stronger in the end. The issues felt very realistic, and although I found that each was resolved quickly, it was easy to forgive. It’s what I read these escapist books for anyway. And it had quite a nice epilogue in the end.

    14. written with the usual Nalini style. Heart wrenching tears to funny wit to more tears. i prefer to read paranormal romances but once i started this i couldnt put it down. had to know how it finished. good short story to read.

    15. More like a 2.5 readStand aloneDual povs)(******SPOILERY******)(Two months after their separation Victoria announces to a shocked then ecstatic Caleb that she’s pregnant. He promptly convinces Victoria to let him move back into their house for the sake of their baby, all the while planning to do everything in his power to ensure she changes her mind about the divorce. Why?For five years of their marriage they were like strangers barely talking to each other and their sex life left them both de [...]

    16. 2 ½ to 3 stars. The story felt a bit flat. I think because I love other books from Singh I came into this with higher expectations. Her other stories are very entertaining and I usually enjoybut this one was just meh.The main conflict between Vicki and Caleb was simply lack of communication. And in a story about two people (one even in his mid-30s) who've been married for years, it just seems strange to me. How can you go so many years without knowing some of the basic things this couple eventu [...]

    17. I was not sure about this one first. I am not a fan of a couple on the brink of divorce getting back together. But this one was different.Caleb and Vicki has been married for 5 years and one day she left. Now she is back 3 months later and excepting his child so they are trying again. I slowly learnt what had gone wrong. Vicki had been rather cold in bed, because of how her grandmother raised her. She never gave much away. And Caleb was a workaholic and she felt he loved his firm more than her.T [...]

    18. เล่มบางๆ (กว่าชุดไซ) แนวรักร่วมสมัย หวานซึ้ง อบอุ่น กล่าวถึงปัญหาในชีวิตคู่ ซึ่งมาจากปัญหาส่วนตัวในอดีตของทั้งสองคน แต่ก็ค่อยๆ คลี่คลายไปทีละปม ด้วยความรักและร่วมมือร่วมใจกัน [...]

    19. First Nalini book. It was ok, a little disappointed because I had high expectations given how wildly popular her writing is. I haven't read any paranormal romances yet but I enjoy contemporary and historicals a lot this was what I would have expected a Harlequin romance from the 80s to be, but not one written just a few years ago. It felt like Dallas or Dynasty. Compared to the contemporary books I have read in the last year, I found it lacking. Library loaned ebook.

    20. I liked the book. It's a story between two people who lost their way in their marriage. Lots of misunderstanding, secrets , mistrust took place in their relationship and both love each other a lot. The heroine got pregnant and they both wanted to give a chance their relationship. What I don't like is the teaser is somewhat misleading Teaser said the hero is the one who has issues about his past but after reading the book I found out that heroine is equally guilty in that sector.

    21. 2.5 stars.I am not a fan of this author overall, but I got through this early contemporary of hers. One part wish-fulfillment, another part case-study, the whole felt a bit reality-TV by way of HQN on Women's channel (such as WE! network). Not my thing, but grudging respect for the author's efforts on this.

    22. Good mills n boon read. Maybe 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the angst and the characters were good. I found it hard to believe in the hero's main reason for feeling unloved/unwanted. Otherwise a decent read.

    23. I loved it. This couple had so a bunch of issues and yet they worked through it, slowly but surely. Some of the problems seemed a bit overs dramatized at first but they were justified over the course of the book. I just love Nalini Singh, such an amazing author!!

    24. more like 3.5 stars. I thought this was a good second chance love story. Both the H/h had some parentals that did them in but they overcame those issues together. The story was sweet but sometimes frustrating. But, I enjoyed it overall.

    25. I was really surprised by this story. It's not something I would typically read, but I was totally engrossed in the story until the very last page.
