Samantha Connelly has been on the run since she was seven-years-old. She was forced into witness protection after her father witnessed a murder. It's been 19 years since she was known as Samantha.
Through all these years she's been a nobody learning to blend in. Her handler, Kevin and both her parents have assured her that this life isn't forever. Now she's moved to Chicago, working at the Rusty Nail as a bartender and calling herself Mallory. Her father has passed away and it's just her and her mum.
In walks Brian. He's everything that Sam has ever dreamed o; he looks and reminds Sam of someone that she left behind long ago. After spending some time with him, she's has fallen in love but she still needs to hide her identity.
This was the first time that I have read anything written by Heather D'Agostino. She weaves a fantastic story of love and suspense that just draws you into the book until it finishes. I really enjoyed the writing style, it really dragged me into the book completely and let me enjoy the narrative from Sam's point of view rather than just an outsider.
Sam feels like she's a nobody and when she meets Brian she feels like she can finally be somebody. But between the two of them, they seem to have endless secrets that they are keeping from each other. Their chemistry together just burns off the pages whenever they are together. And I just can't get enough of Brian and Sam together. I can't wait for the next book.
