GoodReads Blurb:
I have a secret.

A secret that no-one besides my boyfriend, my mother and I know. A secret from my past which has me trapped in a relationship from hell.

Refusing to tell a soul, I’ve kept it balled up inside for the past few years, trying to seem composed for the world while my reality was the complete opposite. I gave up on any hopes of a different life. A life where love and happiness existed. Alex, personally saw to it himself. He made sure it was drilled deep within my brain. This was the hand that life had dealt me. The life I learned to accept.

Until the day I bumped into Nick.

A gorgeous man who's haunted my thoughts and awakened my desires. A man, whose persistence turned my world upside down, more than it already was. The same man who also happened to be my boss and had a secret of his own. A secret that I couldn't decipher, even when it stood right in front of me. A secret that would blow me away.

My name is Tara and this is my story. 

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

This is Mia Rivers debut novel and it was a great debut. It had plot and character and emotion in it. This book kept me turning pages so I could see what happened and what Tara's secret was. You could feel the tension between the characters, especially Nick and Tara. While this book most definitely had some really steamy scenes, it wasn't just steamy scene after steamy scene, there was also a plot to it; a story. The steam was definitely there but there was more to the book than just that. And the ending was extremely unexpected. I'm eagerly awaiting book two. 4 quills!!
