About the book:

Six years ago, Alexis Baptiste’s world was turned upside down when Hunter Cassidy disappeared without a trace, leaving her alone and pregnant. She’s finally moving on with her life when he resurfaces, just in time to rescue her from a would-be assassin. Forced to join him on the run to protect herself and her young son, Alexis is now in even more danger: danger of falling for Hunter all over again.
Betrayed by rogue CIA agents after infiltrating an infamous drug cartel, former DEA agent Hunter Cassidy has spent years trying to clear his name. He’s not proud of the things he’s done, and knows he doesn’t deserve a future with Alexis, or the son he never knew he had, but he’s determined to protect them from the men who ruined his life. Convincing Alexis to trust him—and denying his feelings for her—is going to be the hardest mission he’s ever faced.

Katie Reus is an excellent romance author. I connected with every part of His Secret Past, and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the story. Alexis is a pure, strong, and independent woman. I loved her character, and was instantly a fan. As a single parent and dedicated mother; her character is an open book. Hunter on the other hand takes a little time to uncover. With the mystery of his past readers will be uncertain whether they should love him or hate him. After discovering he left the love of his life for some dark hidden reason, and then uncovering that Alexis was pregnant when Hunter left which in turn results with her spending the last six years raising their child solo; this will quickly make you question his character. Them demonstrates Reus's talent to carefully craft a character that readers will grow to love along with the story. In the end, Hunter is a well rounded character that I absolutely loved. As an adult and Mother this was a awesome read. I love the child quality that was added to the story through Jonathan. When this little boy tells Hunter, "Uh Oh! You are in big trouble. She used your whole name..." That was priceless, and I loved it!! Nothing can add dead pan humor like a child. It was emotionally moving to also see the relationship grow between Hunter and Jonathan. This is something that a young adult novel with never offer; with it's ability to speak to a mother's heart. I loved the entire story. This was a tornado of suspense, romance, and action that left me wanting more. Katie Reus is an amazingly talented author, and I love reading her wonderfully heart stopping novels.
