Title: Sam’s Secrets
Author: Ruby Dixon
Series: Icehome #15
Life has taught Sam that she can’t trust anyone, and being on an alien planet hasn’t changed her views. She is just glad she hasn’t resonated with anyone. But when her khui does resonate, its to the last person she expected and she refuses to accept it.
Sam has been one of the strong and resourceful humans in this series. I always liked her because she wasn’t winy. In this book, we finally understand what has driven her to be a strong and resourceful woman. And while I understand her fears about being in a relationship, I do think a lot of her concerns about her ex were a little ridiculous. I won’t say more than that because I don’t want to spoil anything.
Seesah was a surprisingly great hero. He has always been the gangly teenager in the series before this but he really grew into a great man. I loved how he took it slow with Sam and let her set the pace of their relationship. Also he is such a sweet and innocent alien, but he does finally get some understanding of how dangerous it can be in the galaxy.
Overall, this was a pretty good Icehome novel. I liked the couple and look forward to seeing how they grow in the future. Also, I feel like their idea to not tell everyone the truth of what happened in the fruit cave will come back to haunt them.
Trigger Warnings: Sam was stalked, abused, and threatened with death by an ex. She was blamed for the violence and ignored by the cops.
