I’ve read other books by this author and they were all good but this one is my favorite so far. It had a lot of emotion, deception, childhood issues and romance. The two main characters had more in common than they realized for a long time. Both had grown up with alcoholic fathers that put their families in turmoil. They both struggled with issues relating to their fathers and how it affected the way they lived their adult lives later on.
A big deception relating to the true author of several best selling books puts Lucas in a spot to find out the secret. A promise of big money to help his brother with financial issues prompts Lucas to try to find out the hidden secret. Rachel’s money she makes on her books help her finance a nice place for her father to live while physically alive, but brain dead. Her aunt provides the name and physical presence to keep Rachel out of the limelight masquerading as the assistant.
I loved how the relationships among the characters changed and developed over the course of the pages as I read. I was drawn into the story and related personally to some aspects of what happened. It was interesting as I drew close to the end how the author had written in a big surprise that helped conclude a very interesting story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
