About this ebook

Your past does not define you. It prepares you.

Everyone has a past. 

But not everyone has a past like mine.


I've left the life I lived before behind. Started over in Kingston—a small town with a big heart. Nothing like the cold, hard city that I'd called my home before. 

But to begin again, I had to piss off some dangerous people. 

And now, she is here, too. Sarah. Intrepid new reporter at the Kingston Press, and the hottest thing on two legs that's ever walked through this town. She's set her sights on me and the past I've been running from all this time. 

They say lies are just a temporary delay of the inevitable. If she finds out the truth… 

Everything could come tumbling down—and she could be caught in the middle of it.

This is a slow-burn romantic thriller. As the first part of a six-part series Lexy Timms takes the time to really flesh out the characters, making them believable. Jesse and his brother move to a small town. Jesse is a philanthropist which makes him interesting to Sarah who is a reporter. The fact that Jesse is smoking hot doesn't hurt either. What will Sarah's digging dredge up from Jesse's past and will it affect their fledgeling relationship? This book has definitely left me wanting more.
