What do you do when you find out your whole life has been a lie?
This book tackles friendship, betrayal, lies, and love. It follows Annabelle (Parker), Garrett and Milo. The three met in a coffee shop 8 years prior and forged a close friendship. Milo and Parker’s friendship developed into a relationship that resulted in an engagement. Through it all, Garrett and Parker hid from and resisted their feelings for each other in order to keep Milo happy and to maintain their close friendship.
Parker is an amazing character, she is one of my all time favorite female heroines. She lives a double life. Annabelle is a feminine and beautiful photographer who travels the world and has earned many awards for her work. Agent Parker is a tough as nails, foul mouthed, ass kicking, gun toting CIA agent. She has lost everyone in her life that she has ever loved, so she decides to build a life with Milo, a safe happy life devoid of real true love, love that can make her weak.
Garrett, oh boy, this guy is amazinggggg! He’s pretty much every girls dark headed wet dream, or mine anyways. Tall, muscular, smart, sarcastic, sweet, caring, and a Navy SEAL. He is hopelessly in love with his best friend, Parker, who also happens to be his life long friend, Milo’s fiancé.
When Milo is killed on a mission there is suspicion surrounding his death, clues and information that can’t be ignored surface, making everything that thought they knew to be a lie. Parker uses her connections to earn a spot along side Garrett as his SEAL team travels to the Dominican Republic where together, they investigate Milo’s murder.
There isn’t really anything more that I can say about this amazing plot without giving away important spoilers. What I will say is that there is never a dull moment in this book. Even the supporting characters have personality and meaning to the story and the main characters are so fully developed and perfectly balanced. The investigation brings to light lies, deceit, and betrayal. It leads Parker and Garrett on an action packed adventure through the Dominican Republic. There is scorching hot sex, never ending action, female ass kicking, you name it, its in this book and its done so well!
I am a huge Tara Sivec fan and I recommend any book that she’s written. I’ve read them all and they are all so fantastic. With that said, there is something about this series that just does it for me. If you have not read this book, then you are seriously missing out. Book two tells Brady’s story, who is one of the supporting characters from this book. Buy this book, read it, you wont be sorry.
