Looking like sin and smelling like trouble…

Boston attorney Malachim Jerrod doesn’t trust anyone. His father and his ex-fiancé taught him that hard lesson. So when a beautiful stranger arrives on his doorstep his first reaction is to back away—far away. Danielle Warren wants a job, but his law business is falling apart, and her credentials are bare-bones at best. Still, there’s something about her that, try as he might, he’s unable to resist. The vulnerability in her soft voice? The way she flinches when he gets too close? The yearning he sees mirrored in her eyes when she looks at him?

She’s the last thing he needs…

Two years ago, Danielle barely escaped alive from her powerful and abusive ex-husband. Now her ex is out of prison, and he’s coming for her. She knows she must leave her new job and run. Disappear—to keep herself and those she loves safe. Including her sexy boss, who has sparked feelings in her heart she never thought she’d feel again. Yet, she can’t help but wonder…should she let down her guard and trust Malachim with the truth?

But the only one he desires.

Working together brings them closer than ever—but reveals secrets and sins best left buried in the past. Their lives and their passionate love at stake, Danielle and Malachim must fight to survive to grasp the future of their dreams.


"Naima Simone will have you on the edge of your seat wanting to keep reading until you finish the book. I could not put it down because I wanted to find out what would happen next...She not only brings you the story between Danielle and Malachim, but also the gut-wrenching suspense of what would you do if you were caught in Danielle’s shoes. They both were strong characters who had struggles of their own and needed to mend but needed that extra help. This book is very highly on my recommend to read list." --Girly Girl Book Reviews

"Naima gives us a fast paced, dangerous and thrilling journey of personal growth and romance in Secrets and Sins: Malachim. I got through Secrets and Sins: Malachim really fast because I could not put it down!" --Sue, Goodreads

"That is the perfect romantic suspense, in my book and Ms. Simone does the job wonderfully." --Ursula, Goodreads

"I absolutely loved the book. There wasn't a single thing that I would change or add. There was lies, danger, suspense, romance, murder and betrayal. What more could you ask for. Between Alex, Walt and Christopher you never knew what was going to happen next." --Samantha, Goodreads

4.5 Stars

The story began with an intense scene that set the stage for the rest of the story. This book was wonderfully executed and had me guessing the whole time. Sure there were certain things I could see coming, but I was never really sure until they happened. The damaged heroine meets an equally ...more

I was expecting Mal's story. Maybe too much...

But I remained disappointed to a degree.

While Gabriel's and Leah's story has kept me avidly reading to find out what is happening, here I wasn't so involved.
It could be because since the beginning the reason of Danielle's secrecy was explained and even i ...more

This is my first read by Naima Simone and definitely will not be my last!

So those of you who know Naima Simone as a bwwm author should know that this book and the series feature white men and women. Narry a black woman in sight.

That aside, this was a great read. I enjoyed the central plot, a bit 'who done t' and a bit 'sleeping with the enemy'. ...more

Great Book

Of course, I'm reading the series of these books out of order. They are true stand alone books. Malachim is a true hero, loved his character. I applaud Danielle for her strength. I loved this story just as much as I loved Raphael's story. Can't wait to read the other stories in this series ...more

By Danielle January 28, 2020

Loved the book and all the twist and turns. It makes me want to read about the rest of Malachim's friends.. Maybe in the future.

The only thing I found wrong with this book was that I wish there was more to the ending. ...more

4.5 Star Review by Kristie K.

I really enjoyed this book and I think it was the main characters that did it for me. I really liked how both of the main characters were so broken and had such tragic histories, but the author didn't rush the two getting together. They fought their attraction, especially Danielle since her ...more

I’m always up for a damsel-in-distress type of romance. The guys are usually all alpha and sexy and protective and Malachim didn’t disappoint.

This being the second installment in the series, there’s a little you need to get up to date regarding Malachim’s job situation. He’s a lawyer and hi ...more
