My review:

This story is about Garrett McCarthy, Annabelle Parker, and Milo Roberts who were as close as friends could get. 

Something goes terribly wrong and Milo winds up dead while on mission as a Navy Seal. One of the many twists is that Milo's death was not an accident, leading Garrett and Anna to head to the Dominican Republic with a Seal Team to find out what really happened to Milo. 

Just when I thought I had it all figured out Tara Sivec blew me away with another twist. Things were no longer predictable and had just the right amount of sexy and danger around every corner. I was on the edge of my seat with every page turn. 

This is a bit of a long read but so extremely worth it!

Description from

He saw her first, but his friend made the move.

She settled for the safer choice, but her heart knew the truth.

They love, they crave, they lie.

Garrett McCarthy, Annabelle Parker, and Milo Roberts were as close as friends could get. They shared in each other's joy during graduations, promotions, and engagements. They consoled one another through heartache and loss.

When one of the friend's life is tragically cut short, it's up to the two left behind to pick up the pieces and find out the truth - no matter the cost. As they slowly start to uncover the nature of his deception, and the very powerful people behind it, they begin to question everyone and everything, even themselves.

Everyone has secrets - some do it for love while others do it for power. Those secrets can change perceptions, alter reality and sometimes destroy lives.

What do you do when you find out your whole life has been a lie?

My favorite quotes from the book:

“If you were mine, I would never be able to walk away from you. If you were mine, I'd worship every inch of your body with my hands, lips, and tongue. If you were mine, I wouldn’t be able to stand in the same room as you without running my hands over your skin and tasting your lips. If you were mine…”  

“You wouldn't know what the fuck to do in a dangerous situation if your life depended on it. And it would, little one.” 

“He wanted to drown in her and shout at the top of his lungs that she was his. It was always her, only her.”

“He looks at you like you’re the key to his soul and like he wants to devour you.”  

“I’m scared because I love you so much sometimes it’s hard to breathe.”
