Declan is a baseball superstar but also a hot mess. It’s time to get his life back on track. He’s headed to a remote island that is completely disconnected from the rest of the the world. He’ll stay for several months to clean up his act.
Finley has lived on the island her entire life. She’s the current “doctor” on the island because the actual doctor is on a leave of absence. She’s independent, a caregiver, loyal and never sits idle.
He’s lived a life of indulgence; she appreciates the simple life. Both carry baggage and pain. This is their story.
An emotionally charged love story with a connection that could not be denied. It was a slow burn that culminated into an uncontrolled blaze!!! So many secrets and a twist I never expected. The story is honest and beautiful with it’s pain. However, their love was life changing!
I could not wait to to read this installment in the Sinful Secrets series, although it is a “full” length total standalone.
This read was a heart wrenching, raw and gritty friends to lovers story. An unconventional love story that tore my heart open then nicely put it back together.
I was captivated by this emotional and gripping story. The intensity the build up, you think the story is going in one direction and boom it went another. The characters were relatable and well developed.
Overall it was well written and well developed. This author is a master at creating intricate scenes that unfold to a degree that you feel you’re there. Unfortunately, that became a detriment to this story. This book is big, hefty big and while I love a good big book some of the scenes seemed excessively long and dragged out. I felt like some of the scenes could have been streamlined and tightened up a bit.
However, I skipped along and overall I didn’t feel I missed anything and in the end I loved this story!
All the puzzle pieces to that thing called love explored “fantastically” in a remote island that really does exist!
"I'm just a girl locked on an island..."
Though life has not been kind to her, having to witness what happened to her parents on her seventh birthday had a great impact that left her traumatized while growing up. But with the love and guidance of her Gammy(her mom's mother). Finley Evans grows up to be an independent, shy, gorgeous, and strong. She was the epitome of a simple girl with a beautiful soul.
The story of Declan and Finley is all-consuming! I like how it all begun when Declan met Finley, it wasn't instant love, as a matter of fact, they hate each other. And Finley tries to avoid Declan as much as possible. But Declan needs Finley, so he tries to get to her good side. I enjoy that witty banter between these two, really naively hilarious at times. And the intimate scenes are scorching. *fans self* Still, there are some secrets that are bound to be known as the story progress and that twist I didn't expect that I almost drop my kindle.
Covet is a heart-warming story that kept me hooked after a few pages of reading. I enjoyed this book so much that I read it all in one sitting. It's more than just a forbidden romance, if I may say so. It was articulately well written, characters are well developed and the plot is well thought of.
Of all the books I read from this author, I'm glad to say that this is one of her best work yet. Ella James latest release is really worth the wait. It's quite a long book, true, but if the story is this good the time I spent reading it is time well spent. Highly recommended.

Finley lives on the Island, the only place she has known. Declan is an all American, gorgeous sports star who comes to stay for a while. They are attracted to each other but secrets, trauma and shame torment them both. Things are revealed slowly, in a clever, original story which has all the emotions you could wish for, passion,pain, fear,doubt, humour and love. A very good read.
