Assistant store manager Melanie is one of a kind. Working her way up from the bottom, she's on the road to becoming a salaried manager with the help of her boss and mentor, Paulina. Her dedication, determination, and great attitude keep her moving up the corporate ladder. Things are going good, but just as she receives her first big promotion, Paulina goes out on disability, and Melanie is stuck with Tim, a young and flirtatious temporary manager; and Raylayna, the new district manager who seems to always be on a power trip.
Tim is a handsome yet cocky guy who is more than willing to let you know how good he is at his job. Although he is engaged, he takes an interest in Melanie as soon as they meet each other. His laidback attitude conflicts with Melanie's intense determination, and it drives her crazy to see him get the credit for all her hard work. Melanie is suddenly faced with the new challenge of resisting her strong desires for Tim while trying to remain professional at work.
When things go too far, will the secret they have tear them apart or bring them together?
Note: This is an erotic romance book. It contains graphic language, strong emotion, and passionate love scenes.

I must admit that I am not that into romance books because I always prefer watching movie films over reading or listening to audio books. The only romance book I’ve tried to read is Fifty Shades of Grey and for me, that book is actually way better than the films. Considering that Fifty Shades was my first romance book, that makes this audio book my second one and oh dear, I am going to have to bow down to Bancroft for writing a spectacular piece, hands down!
I’ve never imagined myself getting into romance books because I did not think that it would actually give you the same quality experience you get from a film. I love how the story makes you work your imagination and how interesting it is.
I’m going to have to put Bancroft in my watch list. This is the first one out of the many books I will be purchasing from her!
I can relate
"Relax, side chick".... this is my favorite part. i guess in chapter six of the book.Tim is trying to calm Melanie down after he had got her in trouble at work... I like how he carelessly called her side chick
Kendall has easily become my favorite romance narrator. i would choose her time and time again
I laughed my ass off at the point when Melanie sent her nude to her boss
In my opinion, Alessandra Bancroft has delivered yet another fantastic romance story in Our Secret.
In Melanie and Tim, she has created characters that are believable and the way Bancroft expertly builds the chemistry and sexual tension between the two is excellent.
The narrator also deserves praise as she really helps bring this tale to life with her tremendous delivery.
A really enjoyable listen and a must have for fans of steamy romance stories!
I love romance novels and this was packed full of sexual tension and excitement. The quality of the writing in Our Secret was so much higher than that which you normally find in romance novels and the story was engaging and believable. The book was sprinkled with funny moments which really added an extra dimension that I loved.
Kendall Taylor's narration was brilliant and I'll definitely be looking for titles that he's narrated again. His voice really brought you into their world and made it all feel so much more real.
I'd definitely recommend this to my friends!
Passionate, delightful and so realistic
The most amusing character is Raylayna, Melanie’s boos, that is strong and powerful but sometimes ridiculous. Her irritation, shouting in front of customers, her strange comments and character is funny. She is so realistic that nearly impossible to believe that she is just a fictional figure. The most amusing moment was when Melanie sent her naked picture by mistake to Raylayna’s phone. I was wonder how her reaction would be. Also for Melanie it is the most traumatic moment, she can lose her job and feel terrible.
I really like Kendall Taylor's as narrator. She is manage to changing voice tone and accent to perform different characters. Her voice is very emotional and suits for the vivid story.
A passionate, twisted romance story in the scenery of the modern supermarket, workplace hierarchy and overwhelming stress and pressure. Mixture of unpredictable events, secrets and very strong emotions.
Alessandra Bancroft in “Our secret” creates tension, desire and competition between main characters and shows they relationships in different angles. The key word is the title – our secret. Both Melanie and Tom gradually have more and more secrets to hide. In the climax of the story their most excited secret appears – they became secret lovers. Very powerful ending is the most excited moment that most readers looking forward. They won’t be disappointed for sure.
"I couldn't stop listening until the end!"
This was an extremely captivating and entertaining audio and I wish I had more of it! The narrator is great and the story flows nicely with good character development. It get's hot and steamy at the end and I've been thinking about this story the last few hours with a smile on my face! Highly recommended!
"Our Secret: A modern, captivating romance"
I absolutely loved Our Secret! Bancroft has become one of my favorite romance authors with her unique twists and interesting characters. This particular story follows Melanie who is an average girl trying to make her way in corporate America. She's doing great until she meets Tim, a cocky temp who steals credit for her work but takes ever available opportunity to flirt. Despite his attitude, the two get close and well, you can imagine the rest. But there is just a few problems. Tim is engaged and Melanie and him are coworkers. This is another cant-put-down book. Get it now! You won't regret it.
"Another great romance book!"
This is a very exciting and romantic book. If you are a fan of romance books, this is another must-listen and must-buy because you will love it. I bought it for my mom to listen to and she loved it.
"A Dark and Secret Romance"
What I loved best about "Our Secret" is the true romance that was bound to happen. I liked the way they kept flirting with each other. In the beginning you could tell that they were just playing around, but once they were alone in the freezer, I knew it was just a matter of time.
I think I might compare "Our Secret" to "Always You" because of the way each woman felt. I know that one woman was in a relationship, and the other woman was not, but I could their understand the feeling they both shared. They both had men who wanted them in anyway possible, and when it happened for both women, ecstasy just took over.
I have listened to Kendall Taylor perform "Always You," and in both stories she gave a great performance. I mean, I'm sure it would be difficult to be the voice of a man, but she does pretty good. She doesn't speak in low tones as if was a man, but gives on the impression of how a man would act.
The part of "Our Secret" that moved me the most was the steamy romantic scene. It's hard for me to express how I feel about about this situation, but it just seemed so real for me. I am separated from my husband, and sometimes I crave that same attention.
I do not think that you need improve this book at all. I really enjoyed listening to it, and if it brings a woman to want to be with her soon to be ex-husband one more time? You know it was worth it.
"Forbidden Romance Secrets!"
Loved our secret by Alessandra. She has brought out developed characters in this romance novel. I always fall in love with her choice of character and script.

Melanie is struggling to achieve her dreams while Tim who's always flirting with her puts her in trouble at any given moment. Raylayna their boss is always on their necks. Melanie's relationship is in rocks while Tim is getting married but still lusts after her and they call it their 'secret'. So sweet was their romance I was left desiring for more. Always on the lookout for more of her romance novels. Don't be left behind by this wave of romance!
