If He Only Knew... - Debbi Rawlins

Creepy chick on cover doesn't seem v. into it.

 

Because I totally relate to a poor little rich trust fund baby and her almost gratuitous law degree from Yale...

 

The book starts out at her going away party. Not the going away party you assume; the going away party for her alter ego who has decided she can't take living on a legal secretary's salary and doing without her favorite booze and high class dining one more day. She's going home.

 

Chapter one is several weeks later when the former boss she had a crush on calls her out of the blue and wants to meet for dinner or something. The next 2/3 of the book is her hiding her identity from him while sleeping with him. I sort of wondered if she would ever have told him. Her sister, not realizing the poor guy was completely in the dark, arranged a double date and clued him in.

 

Near the end, she reluctantly invited him to a reception of some sort her parents were hosting. His client showed up drunk and said things to her in his (the H) hearing, prompting him to decide they were mostly just tolerating him, so he started to leave but changed his mind.

 

Epilogue has them back in NY (she was from Atlanta) so I guess they worked things out.

I Knew You Were Trouble - Soraya Lane

Book three brings us Nate, the head of the King family, and Faith, his best friends little sister, that he swore to stay away from for all times. Even though he has had the hots for her for years, he kept his promise to his friend. When she shows up on his doorstep looking for help and a safe place to stay he knows he should say no. But when she shows him the evidence of why she needs somewhere to stay and why going to her brother is a bad idea, he can’t turn her away. Now that they are living under the same roof, their friendship heats up and even Sam can’t keep them apart. I liked their story a lot.  I enjoyed watching them grow close and get to know each other better. I do have to admit though that I think I liked Chase’s book better for emotional tension. Faith and Nate’s conflict was a bit tame, though it didn’t detract from the enjoyment of their story. It was sweet, passionate, romantic, and enjoyable. All in all, a cute and great series.

If You Only Knew: IF YOU ONLY KNEW - Cyn... If You Only Knew: IF YOU ONLY KNEW - Cynthia Clark

With thanks to Netgalley and Aria for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.

 

Seventeen years ago university student Elizabeth was riding her bike back to halls when she was struck by a lorry.  The driver was charming and apologetic, when he offered her a lift home she thought why not?

 

Elizabeth woke up hours later kept prisoner in a shed in the middle of nowhere.  Once she had come round he viciously raped her.  When he was about to rape her again Elizabeth found a piece of jagged glass on the floor and stabbed him in the neck.  Elizabeth was in shock and felt she could not go to the police so she walked back to university pushing her bicycle in the dark.  She never mentioned the rape or killing to anyone and vowed to put it behind her.

 

In the present day Elizabeth is a lawyer and part owner of a solicitors practice.  She is married to Miles who she met at university and they have two children.  Her carefully constructed life starts to unravel when someone close starts raking through their past.

 

I can't say much more in case I ruin the story.  But I have to say, this book has left me speechless it was so good.  The tension the author creased was palpable, I could practically hear the clock ticking as Elizabeth's secret was about to be revealed.

 

You find out what happened to Elizabeth early in the story, but this made me understand the lengths she went to protect herself.  The character I disliked was Miles because he wanted Elizabeth to confess because he could not live with himself knowing the truth.

 

I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars.  I look forward to Cynthia Clark's next book.

If You Knew Her
If You Knew Her: A Novel - Emily Elgar

I received this book via Edelweiss+ to give an honest review.

 

Just reading the blurb is what made me want to read this book. Told by different people's point of view. We slowly learn what has lead up to Cassie being put in the hospital. 

Alice is the nurse that tends to both Cassie and Frank and Alice is going through some things herself which we see in a way why she is wanting to take care of Cassie more than what a nurse would. It seems that Alice believes there is something more going on than meets the eye. Frank who shares a room with Cassie can hear everything going on around him yet he can not talk to say this is what is going on. We see how Frank just is screaming to be heard yet he knows there is nothing he can do. He wants to protect Cassie just like Alice wants to. 

As read on we learn that the marriage between Cassie and her husband is not all rainbows and butterflies and you will be surprised at what happened on that cold winter night. A very good story that pulled me in from the beginning. I love how the characters are well developed, especially Alice and her unconventional methods at getting answers. The plot was a steady pace and I didn't feel that it went to fast or too slow. 

The way the author did the building up to us readers finding out what happened was awesome, because we go between the past and the present and it just flowed together so nicely that there didn't seem to be room for errors.
