The title of this one made me nervous, but I adored the direction it was taken. It's interesting only getting to see this world through Victor's eyes, since it's becoming more and more obvious how unreliable he can be as a narrator at times. When it comes to Jacob and their relationship, it's seemed like Victor has been waiting for the other shoe to drop. Like he can't believe Jacob would honestly love and want to be in a relationship with him, so he's waiting for Jacob to come to his senses and leave him. I hoped that in a book called "secrets" that Jacob and Victor would both share some of the ones they've been keeping from each other so that Victor could finally start trusting Jacob (or trusting himself to be good enough for Jacob).
I loved how many of the secrets surprised me. And that most of them were good surprises. I had jumped to the same conclusion as Victor did when he finally put the clues together about Jacob going over to see Crash. I think my favorite thing about this book was the JCP made Jacob have Carolyn stay in the room for when he says he just went there to talk. Because even if Victor had believed and forgiven him, I'm not sure I would have.
I was actually a little freaked out by Jacob at some points in this book. The way he's described staring at Victor while they're both supposed to be working was odd and a little crazy. Like Victor said, though, perhaps that's just another thing that makes them perfect for each other.
I also totally enjoyed getting to see more of Crash, even Though Victor's increasing attachment to him makes me sadder every time they're together. I'm not sure what I hope ends up happening with those three, but I know I hope they all end up happy. (And much as it tore Victor up to see it, that video of Crash and Jacob sounded HOT!)
The cliffhanger ending didn't bother me--perhaps because I already have book 5 and know I can start it right away. I do like how well things were set up for the next book, that all of the little questions weren't answered by the end of this one. And on that note... on to book 5!
