Secrets, Choices: Review

From Goodreads:
While Olivia Martin observed life through her camera, the abyss gazed back at her. She discovers mysterious men follow her around, people close to her are dying, and her dreams are no longer her own as she falls head over heels for a perfect stranger. A chance encounter leads to an obsession that could destroy everything she has ever known or loved. Olivia is about to find out there is a lot she doesn't know and sometimes what you don't know can kill you.

From Goodreads:
Hearts break. Loved ones are lost. Life keeps moving. 

Olivia Martin's afterlife was more dangerous and confusing than her life ever was. She thought she was ready to come back, to forget about Holden and to let go of the rage consuming her. Fulfilling her destiny as a guardian was all that mattered—the past could stay hidden in the crevices of her mind. However, when guardians are murdered and the evidence points towards jinn, she has to do something. To save anyone's future, Olivia will have to confront the one person from her past she is terrified to see.

Holden waited for Olivia with the hope he would see her one more time. But when she didn't return, he found salvation in darkness. The black and twisted road made it easier to forget what he lost than to live with the memory of what he had. An unexpected promotion shoves him into a world of intoxicating power and influence. Holden will have to choose between his new life and the woman he thought was gone forever. 

From the ashes of Secrets, Choices are born that will change everything.

My Review:
I didn't read the synopsis of Choices before reading Secrets. So that was a great decision, seeing what went on in Choices that would spoil Secrets! Well, the synopsis, really. But it would've been even worse if I'd read them in the wrong order!

Yes, these are books that I read as a part of a book tour. No, that didn't influence my opinion of them. They were pretty great books to read, not excellent, top books of the year, but not ones that I couldn't finish. Just in the middle, there!

I really enjoyed the dual POV's, because yeah, there was something up, and seeing through one pair of eyes doesn't work all the time, so yeah, the choice of the dual POV's was perfect for these books, and I enjoyed that choice a lot!

These are the first 2 books of a trilogy, there's going to be one more book. So yeah, really enjoyed the threads that were started, and the ones that were closed and the ones that were left open, and how they ended if they did, and wondering how they might be if they haven't!

Really enjoyed reading these books a lot!
