It started with a glance. And ended with a nightmare.

Small-town girl Haley Montgomery meets two men who will change her life forever—the handsome Marc Vincetti, whom she falls head over heels for, and big-time Hollywood producer Allen Michaels, who has the power to turn her screenplay into a movie and hand her a ticket to a better future.

It seems as though life couldn't get any better—until things take a decidedly dark turn when Haley spots Marc with his former high school sweetheart and Allen develops a consuming obsession with her… a fixation fueled by his disturbing past.

As Haley faces a choice between love and fame, Marc becomes the target of a homicidal stalker and Haley's life is thrown into a tailspin. Suddenly everything she thought she knew about Marc and Allen is completely wrong—and Haley's life will never be the same again…

Emma was unloved from the moment she was born. Her earliest memory is being severely beaten by her father, Pepper Murphy, when she was eight-years-old. Seething with resentment over the sacrifice of his dreams for a woman he cares little about and children he never wanted, Pepper chooses to blame his oldest daughter. Her mother, Valerie, makes matters worse with her verbal abuse, leaving Emma isolated with a man that had no boundaries in punishing his daughter, taking his abuse to unimaginable levels.

Emma's father's coldblooded beatings and the ultimate abuse to which he subjects her, lays the foundation of the person she becomes. As she matures into a resourceful teenager, she is unwilling and unable to stifle her desire for revenge. Reaching her breaking point she can no longer control the impulse to fight back and finally takes matters into her own hands.

Having learned the art of hatred from her father and the mastery of manipulation from her mother, young Emma now sets out to make a better life for herself, leaving the memory of the abused child she had once been behind her. Hardened by the heartless brutality she encounters and the dangerous situations she must overcome in the course of her journey, she faces every challenge that comes her way in her quest for a normal life for herself and for those she loves.

Finally a person emerges from within that guides her toward a better life until she learns of a secret that sets her on the path of ultimate redemption.

Alessa is just seven years old when her uncle rapes her for the first time. As the years pass, his sexual appetite becomes more voracious and his perversion more twisted, until the abuse has become almost a daily ritual, with the unspoken involvement of the girl's mother.

At the age of sixteen, after the death of her only friend, Alessa finds herself at the mercy of her real-life monster, with no relief in sight.

Though Alessa's bittersweet journey is perpetually fraught with challenges, she does, nevertheless, manage to find fleeting moments of joy along the way.

Buried Secrets (New Adult Dark Suspense Romance) - Fido Publishing

This felt like the never ending book that was just so slow & boring when it came to the actual storyline. And what the actual fuck was that ending about? I didn't like that "twist". It was way to weird for me.

I liked the heroine Dustine 'Dusty' and I even liked the hero Shane & all the secondary characters. Except for Dusty's parents. Her stepmom was a first class bitch & her dad was a spineless pussy. I don't think you were supposed to like them though. 

Dusty's twin brother Nick was killed & Dusty knows there's something not adding up with how he was killed. She knows that Shane, Nicks best friend knows something about how Nick was killed and she's determined to figure it out. While she's trying to add up what happened to her brother Dusty learns some things about her family (mainly her dad), secrets that her brother was keeping, & she learns things about Shane along the way. She also comes to accept that she's fallen in love with Shane & learns that he's loved her since they first met as kids. 

I was into the story for the first 25% but then, everything just went really downhill from there for me. There's 3 parts to this story & IMO part 1 is the only part worth reading. It was emotional & I really felt for Dusty and what she was going through. Everything after that moved along slowly & I kept thinking 'ok, this has to end soon right?!' The chemistry between Shane & Dusty felt forced & was just meh. I didn't find him to be hot or swoony, he was just ok. I will say that Dusty grew a backbone & more confidence throughout the book. She started to do things for herself & grew as an individual. Also, don't go into this book thinking it's an epic romance type of book. It's a murder mystery book. The romance is nil. There is a 'sex' scene but, it's extremely glossed over. 

Even though I didn't love this book, I can say that it was well written. 

*thanks to netgalley for the arc*

Buried Secrets (New Adult Dark Suspense Romance) - Fido Publishing I love romantic suspense novels and Buried Secrets, Emme Rollins’s latest book, delivers on both ends. She also adds a touch of a paranormal twist to the mix to spice things up.

Buried Secrets takes place in the small town of Larkspur, Michigan. So small in fact that it doesn’t even have its own high school or local paper. Needless to say when Nick Chandler is found murdered in the graveyard, his sister Dusty knows there’s more to the story. Questioning his friends gets her nowhere but she can tell they’re hiding something by the look in their eyes. Seeking solace in Nick’s best friend, Shane Curtis, she soon can’t fight her feelings for him any longer. After a weekend of bliss, Dusty, high on emotions, confronts Shane about the night of her brother’s murder and he unravels a story even he still can’t believe.

I have a love-hate relationship with Dusty. She’s stubborn and short-tempered, which makes me love her and hate her at the same time. These traits clouded her judgement and kept her from seeking what she really wanted, however it also led her to the truth about her brother’s murder and Shane. Speaking of Shane, he is the town’s bad boy, or so everyone thinks. Granted he’s had his fair share of trouble, but not everything is black and white with Shane. In fact, Nick tries to explain this to Dusty the night of his death but she won’t listen. If only he had told her the truth from the beginning, maybe she would have looked at Shane differently.

The start of the book was a little slow for me. Everything revolved around Nick’s death and his funeral, and nothing was really going on. I was a little confused by Dusty’s suspicions of his death at first because there was nothing to go on except that he wasn’t supposed to be in the graveyard. Things finally start coming together when Shane and Dusty start working together. Their romance blossoms and the suspense following Nick’s death is finally revealed. There were actually a couple of clues that you might miss if not thinking about it and it was pretty interesting to read the end result.

Fans of new adult and romantic suspense will enjoy this mysterious tale. There isn’t too much paranormal to it until the very end so that shouldn’t interfere but if you’re looking for something full of the supernatural, this might not be for you.

I received a copy of this book, at no charge to me, in exchange for my honest review.
