He saw her first, but his friend made the move.
She settled for the safer choice, but her heart knew the truth.
They love, they crave, they lie.
Garrett McCarthy, Annabelle Parker, and Milo Roberts were as close as friends could get. They shared in each other's joy during graduations, promotions, and engagements. They consoled one another through heartache and loss.
When one of the friend's life is tragically cut short, it's up to the two left behind to pick up the pieces and find out the truth - no matter the cost. As they slowly start to uncover the nature of his deception, and the very powerful people behind it, they begin to question everyone and everything, even themselves.
Everyone has secrets - some do it for love while others do it for power. Those secrets can change perceptions, alter reality and sometimes destroy lives.
What do you do when you find out your whole life has been a lie ?
"If you were mine, I would never be able to walk away from you. If you were mine, I’d worship every inch of your body with my hands, lips, and tongue. If you were mine, I wouldn't be able to stand in the same room as you without running my hands over your skin and tasting your lips. If you were mine..."
Angie E's Review:
Two words : MIND BLOWN………..So this is the first in what I hope is a series. This book is AMAZING. No seriously. Like when finished reading I was MOURNING the fact that I finished and was done with the inside look I had into the life of Anna and Garret…. FYI….Shhhh don’t tell Anna… GARRET is my NEW BOOK BOYFRIEND….. I love the mystery in this book. It’s like a very hot and sexy game of CLUE. Who did what? with who? where? All the twist and turns kept me consistently wondering WHAT JUST HAPPENED??????? OMG WHAT DID I JUST MISS????????? HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT COMING?????? OH MY GOSH !!!!!!!!!!! So a little about the main characters. Anna Parker well she’s a cute lil girlie girl RIGHT? WRONG…. No she is all that but sooo much more…. Anna is my NEW HERO…. She is so BADASS…. YEP I’m girly crushing on Miss Anna Parker…… She always kept me saying YES, YAY you go girl.. You get yours… I was SOOOO proud of her after finishing this book. Emotional wise this book had it ALL for me laughter, tears, intrigue, confusion, SEXINESS, happiness, and anticipation. I can’t rant enough about this book. Oh wait did i mention the sex scenes? THEY ARE PANTY WETTERS!!!!!!! Who doesn't like a panty wetting sex scene? I see this book/series being her BEST yet!!!!!!!
Angie J's Review:
Let me finish my tums because my stomach was in knots through this entire book. I had no clue what to expect from this novel and I was BLOWN AWAY!!! I can't believe how utterly amazing this book was. When you read this novel you will be in shock that this layered, mystery, suspense book was written by the same woman who had Gavin punching people in the balls....love that kid FYI!!!
Anna Parker meets 2 best friends and all their lives change. When one of the group dies, the other 2 go off and try to find out what the heck happened. Anna Parker was the coolest chick ever! But seeing her make alpha male Garrett look at her and say "who are you?" was hilarious!!! I loved the sexual chemistry these two people had. It blew my mind. I loved the chemistry but when they finally caved...the drunken table scene.....I drank a gallon of water and turned on the air conditioning in DECEMBER people!!!! That was amazing!!!!. I did want to punch Garrett a couple of times in the face because he was such a stubborn arse!! However, when he finally realized he was being a jackass, he would come running!!! I must admit it made me love him more. The basement scene when all hope is lost and he is caressing Anna's face and whispering all the mushy words of love.....I was snot sobbing!! I had giant crocodile tears streaming down my face, wiping my nose with my arm like a 5 year old and hiccuping saying "NOOOOO!"
This book has it all...intrigue, sex appeal, mystery, constant "who done it moments" and lust...lots of lust. I am busting at the seems for book 2 . I can't wait because I want to see more Garrett and Anna but I can't wait for the couple in the next book. They will definitely be a good read!!! I feel like I am rambling but I can't tell you much or I will be sitting here telling the whole story. Just take our advise and read this book. You will not be disappointed!!!!
Jo-Anna W's Review:
First off, WOW!!! This book kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole thing. At one point I would try to guess what was going on and then it ended up being something totally different. At parts I wanted to rip out my hair and throw things and curse like a trucker. I absolutely loved this book and I REALLY hope it's a series. The passion, raw and intense chemistry between Parker and Garrett was HOT and frustrating at times. There were moments that I would yell at the book, "JUST HAVE SEX ALREADY!!!" The whole situation with Milo was crazy. And the basement capture scene?? It was definitely a heart-beating-fast and nail biting moment. The book as a whole was fantastic and fans of TE Sivec will NOT be disappointed!
