“ARC given for an honest review”

Samantha Connelly has been on the run since she was seven years old. Forced into Witness Protection after her father saw something he shouldn’t has caused her to learn to blend in. She’s moved, changed her name, and her appearance more times than she can count over the last nineteen years all along wondering if it will ever end. Her handler, Kevin, along with her parents have assured her that it won’t be forever, but as the years tick by she’s slowly given up hope that she’ll ever be normal.

Now at 26, Sam has moved to Chicago and is working at the Rusty Nail as a bartender calling herself Mallory. Her father passed away two years before leaving her to finish what he started…put away the ‘bad guys’. Living on the run in hiding has been harder than she ever imagined, and finding love has always been out of the question. Who would want to be with someone they couldn’t be honest with? She’s resigned herself to being alone, until… Brian walks in.

Brian Sellers is everything Sam has been trying to avoid her entire life. He’s clad in leather and torn jeans, donning several tattoos… all-in-all a bad boy. When their eyes connect one evening, everything she’s ever told herself falls to the wayside as an indescribable draw pulls her to him. He’s sexy and domineering, and something about him reminds her of a boy she used to know.

The more time she spends with Brian, the more she wants him, but…Brian is not everything he seems to be. When Sam happens to see the tat on his wrist, the same tat that her father saw all those years ago, she realizes she’s flirting with the enemy. Brian has no idea that he’s hanging out with the one girl his boss wants dead.

Can Sam hide her identity from the first man she’s had real feelings for? What will Brian do when he finds out who she really is? Can love really conquer all?

First Sentences

Imagine living a life where you constantly pretended to be someone else…living a life that wasn’t your own.

My Thoughts

Samantha Connelly has been on the run since she was seven-years-old. She was forced into witness protection after her father witnessed a murder. It’s been 19 years since she was known as Samantha. Through all these years she’s been a nobody learning to blend in. Her handler, Kevin and both her parents have assured her that this life isn’t forever. Now she’s moved to Chicago and is working at the Rusty Nail as a bartender and calling herself Mallory. Her father’s passed away and it’s just her and her mum.

In walks Brian, he’s everything that Sam has ever dreamed of, he looks and reminds Sam of someone that she left behind long ago. After spending some time with him she’s falling in love with him but she still needs to hide her identity.

This was the first time that I have read anything written by Heather D’Agostino. She weaves a fantastic story of love and suspense that just draws you into the book until it finishes. I really enjoyed the writing style, it really dragged me into the book completely and let me enjoy it from Sam’s point of view rather than just an outsider. Sam feels like she’s a nobody and when she meets Brian she feels like she can finally be somebody. But between the two of them they seem to have an endless of secrets that they are keeping from each other. Their chemistry together just burns off the pages whenever they are together. And I just can’t get enough of Brian and Sam together. I can’t wait for the next book.
