Secrets & Lies Series
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.
There are no secrets that time does not reveal…
I knew that I wasn't going to be able to hide from my old life forever. But just as things started to feel like home in Kingston, Joe Capullo and his thugs have come looking for me—and the people I care about most.
The only way to protect my brother Luke and Sarah, the intrepid reporter I am falling for, is to go and face what I tried to leave behind.
He has a job for me. One last job. But I'm not willing to return to the roots I fought so hard to leave behind. I know I'm not that man anymore.
But what if Sarah doesn't believe me? What if I don't make it out of this last job alive?
Stop cheating on the future with your past. It's over.
So dark, so deep, the secrets that you keep…
The last thing I need right now is to have to worry about the woman I love.
I'm in Nashville, trying to figure out a way to bring down Dominic Paro, and keep my uneasy truce with my old boss, Joe Capulli, under control. Sarah and my brother are back in Kingston - or at least, that's what I thought.
But soon, it becomes clear that my plan is going to have to account for more than just me. And, when a vital ally turns into a mortal enemy, I know that I am going to have to think on my feet - or risk dying on them...
Lies and Secrets
Lies and Secrets – they are like a cancer in the soul. They eat away what is good and leave only destruction behind…
Take down Dominic Paro, and get out of Nashville. Keep Sarah and my brother Luke safe. It should be easy, right?
But this city has never been kind to me. And it's not about to start now. It's going to take everything we have to take Paro out of the picture - even breaking rules that I promised myself I never would.
But it's going to be worth it when I'm finally free of Joe Capulli. No matter what I have to sacrifice, I'm going to get away from him. But Nashville isn't going to let me go without a fight. And I might have to give up more than I ever expected to...
Mastering others is a strength. Mastering yourself is true power.
Everything that I had is gone.
My brother, Luke, is dead. I have driven Sarah away, and I know she's better off without me.
Which leaves me only one choice—go back to Joe. To the blood-soaked life I had before. Lose myself until it takes me for good and I'm in the ground next to my brother.
Except something won't let me go. Everything might be gone—but the seeds of something that Sarah and I planted together aren't ready to wilt yet. And I'm learning that it's going to be harder to shake the woman I love that I thought...
It's never too late to be who you might have been.
One last chance.
One last chance to get out of Nashville.
One last chance to be with the woman I love.
And if I blow it - neither of us are going to make it out of here alive.
Sarah isn't going to give up on me that easily. I've done everything I can to push her away, but she's back. And putting herself in danger to get me out of Joe's clutches. If we're going to escape, then we're going to have to take risks that we never imagined we would before. The pay-off could be huge. Or it could take everything that I've been dreaming of out from under me for good.
