    2. 3-3.5 DESTRUCTIVE, TOXIC STARS!After finding out a little bit about Jaxon who is visiting his cousin Reed who is like a big brother to Courtney.Reed is Kendra(Courtney's best friend) boyfriend. Kendra persuades Courtney to go on a blind date with Jaxon to help her move on from her abusive ex-boyfriend Philip(the twat)I definitely preferred the hard, sexy chest.I felt his body tense up.Oh hell, did I just say that out loud? Judging by the sudden shift in the atmosphere I knew I had.Jaxon is older [...]

    4. Congratulations to the lovely Jill Patten on the release of her debut novel Toxic Secrets.My God, I seriously don't even know where to begin with this one.

    5. ARC provided by the author for an honest review!Incredible read!Courtney is a teenager in her senior year who has finally ditch the verbally abusive and demeaning controlling boyfriend Phillip ,whom she stuck with for over 3 years .

Jaxon is in town to open another bar and restaurant which h [...]


    6. Angsty new novelI so love ANGSSSSTAt first, I thought is the name misleading, where are the secrets? But boy am I proven wrong. There are many secrets and they are toxic. So many the reader wonders will they ever be able to be together? Furthermore, I think there are even more to come. With secrets, love, and chemistry comes angst and wow does this story have the angst. From the moment Courtney sees Jax for the first time before words have even transpired between the two the angst is dripping of [...]


    7. ARC provided for a review.I really enjoyed this book (actually that’s an understatement). I stayed up till 4AM reading because I just couldn’t put it down. Definitely 5+ stars for me.Courtney is a senior in high school who has ended a 3 year relationship with her boyfriend Phillp. He abuses her verbally and physically, is controlling and cheats on her. *total douche* Enough said! Courtney thinks this last year of school should be easy, but Phillip has plans of his own. He is completely obses [...]


    8. Sooooooo.Where do I begin?The dimples? The eyes? Or the nipple piercing? This book was not what I expected at all. It made me remember first LUST that I classified as love when I was 16 and it also reminded me of REAL first LOVE. I enjoyed the relationship between Court and Kendra because it reminded me of the type of relationship I have with my best friend. The relationship was honest and left nothing to the imagination where the two girls were concerned. Reed, Kendra and Court also has a wonde [...]


    9. ARC provided for an honest review, and honesty is what you will get!You feel the tension, you know a bombshell is coming, you get small pieces of the puzzle, but you are left hanging (I knew going into this it was a cliff hanger) and I WANT MORE!!!I’m fully addicting! Meet Courtney, a 17 year old girl, who believes in true love, however her taste in boys is anything but. She’s fun, she’s easy going, and mature for her age (on some levels). But she has spent too many years with Phillip, who [...]


    10. GREAT DEBUT NOVEL. REALLY GREAT!I was so happy to be given the privilege to beta read Jill's debut novel, and right from the first pages I turned, I was hooked.Jill's ability to create characters you fall in love with, laugh with, hate with a passion, and swoon over —Oh, yesJaxon is one delicious specimen. But more of him soonhe needs his own paragraph— is fantastic. She really gets inside their heads and brings them to life on paper.Courtney is a young woman who has been physically and ment [...]


    11. I had the pleasure of beta reading this great book, and, let me just say, WOW! Jill Patten has poured blood, sweat, and tears into this sucker, and it pulled me and tore me to pieces. Courtney is a high school senior who is coming out of a freaky, mentally abusive relationship. Her asshat ex is a cheater and a control freak, but, my God, it is so hard to pull away from someone like that. I know I’VE BEEN THERE! She is trying to regain her self-respect, her strength, and her life. And, then, al [...]


    12. Quick review:Cover: HOT Rating:PG-16 Thumbs Up:5Overall: Characters: Well DonePlot: Page Turner: Yes Series Cont.? Yes Recommend:YesBook Boyfriend: JaxonSUMMARY (50 words or less)I really liked this one. There are twist that take unexpected turns into events that lead to heart ache and angst. But there are good times too that are heartwarming and smile worthy. Let’s just say this is an entertaining read. One worth picking up today.To see my full review and likeness of my book boyfriend, check [...]


    13. 2.5 stars but would have been 3-4 stars if it hadn't have had such a horrible endingI really enjoyed this until the ending. She's a high schooler, but not too juvenile, he's a 22 year old with lots of secrets, only a few of which we learn about in this book, I guess all will become clear in the follow-up. There were lots of belly tingling happy times in this that made the ending even more brutal and, sad to say, spoiled the story for me. Nasty.The writing was good, better than usual quality but [...]


    14. I had the privilege of beta reading for Ms. Jill Patten. This is her debut novel of love, lies and deceit. Once I began reading, I was hooked and loved every minute of it. It’s a sweet but deliciously passionate love story with a steamy new boyfriend, Jaxon. Oh Jaxon is HOT and makes my heart skip a beat. Can’t wait for the next book!



    15. I really enjoyed this story. Jaxon is every girls dream :) I wish Courtney would of stood up to Phillip a long time ago and she would not be in the situation that she is in. A must read.


    16. I was provided this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. No stars were given to Toxic Secrets because it was not read in entirety. When I read the book's blurb posted on I was excited about reading it! Unfortunately Toxic Secrets is a DNF for me. I read 42% of the book and decided to stop because it wasn't working for me. Any time I DNF a book I always explain my thoughts around not finishing it. Toxic Secrets is a debut by author Jill Patten. The book was soundly written and th [...]


    17. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*Verdict: 4 Deliciously Disturbing Stars!Let me start by saying that this book made me question my sanity and come to the disturbing realization that I can be quite shallow sometimes. In other words I absolutely loved it!Courtney Peterson is a 17 year old high school senior nursing a broken heart courtesy of the gorgeous devil in disguise that is her ex-boyfriend Phillip Wilkins. Armed with a deliciously toned physique, silver tongu [...]

    20. What an amazing way with words to produce such a strong story line kids, Adults, Love, HateCourtney was a small town girl and never thought she would love another other than the high school basketball star, Phillip. Her whole high school experience revolved around Phillip and his violent temper, cheating ways, mind torturing relationship until she finally had enough. A few month before graduation she had finally had enough and broke it off with Phillip but would be ever let her go ? In walks Ja [...]


    21. Ok first I should say that I had read this book as an ARC. I thought I had posted my review but I think in my excitement to get it up, I forgot to hit the save button and it didn’t post. Anyway, Jill has been very patient with me and was a real sweetheart. Since I read this book a bit ago, I thought it was only fair to reread the book and repost a new review. ***This book was given to me as an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review***Courtney is a high school senior who has just co [...]


    22. I loved this book. I felt like I was in high school all over again, being young, dumb, and in love. Ms. Patten creates a realistic story with some deep and rich characters. I thought I was totally going to like Phillip because he was a gorgeous bad boy, but I started to see sociopathic tendencies like he was gonna kill some baby birds later on in life. Just kidding. Of course Courtney is a sweet young girl who has yet to come into the part of her life where she is making wise decisions, but that [...]


    23. "ARC provided by the author for an honest review*I have to say that I really enjoyed this book! For a debut novel I felt it was extremely well written, captivating, and held my attention extremely well. I enjoyed the story line and watching the characters develop. I do not want to wait until 2014 to read the next book! The cliffhanger at the end of this book left me dying for more! Please write quickly!! Even though Courtney is a 17-year-old high school senior and Jaxon is a 22-year-old bar owne [...]


    24. I had the honor of being a beta reader and I have to say this book turned out like nothing I expected! Very well done Jill Patten :)The angst and love in the book is great not to mention the chemistry you can feel between Jaxon and Courtney can set a house on fire! I can absolutely say that I Love Jaxon and he will forever be one of my many book boyfriends! Every time Phillip or his crazy mother was around it made me sweat & gave me a mini anxiety attack wondering, whats next! I will say tha [...]


    25. Love this story. Makes me think about my high school years and how young and dumb we are at that time. It was great seeing Courtney go from a naïve, sweet, shy girl to a young woman who finally started standing up for herself and knows what she wants. And what she wants is Jaxon. OH my that man is so HOT!! I know he's fictional but Jill Patten made me think he was real. She brings Jaxon and all his faults and sexiness to life. I actually liked Phillip at one point in the story because Jill made [...]


    26. Wow. I'm so glad I brought this book from amazon for .99. I missed the giveaway but rad all the good reviews. The story is a roller coaster between Courtney and Philip. What a jerk Philip is. Courtney 17 years old and have been dating Philip since freshman year. It was an abusive relationship. They finally broken up and Courtney was trying to start over. Her cousin Kendra tried to set her up with a blind date. Jaxon was the opposite he was a bad boy and 22 years old. The story kept you going. A [...]


    27. I am not truly happy with a book unless my guts have been ripped out by the end….Toxic Secrets did just that. My emotions were definitely put through the ‘ringer’ while reading this book—I wanted to shake Courtney until her teeth rattled (even though I forgave her in the end because haven’t we all been stupid 17 year-old girls once?), punch Phillip right in the face and hug all of the hurt out of Jaxon. Jill Patten drew me right into this story and made me care what happens next—I ca [...]
