I’ve lived by that motto for most of my life. I’ve hid who I am, who I used to be, and what I’ve done from anyone who dares to get close to me. At nineteen I lost my parents. I thought nothing in the world could be more painful. I was wrong.
When I met Leo, my world seemed brighter. I felt hope for the first time in months. He promised me a life of luxury, but things aren’t always as they seem. Leo had a dark side, one that he hid from me. He pulled me under and held me captive, making death seem like the only way out.
It took me two years to escape. I ran never looking back until now. My life is finally coming together. I have people I trust, a job, and a safe place to call home, but things aren’t always as they seem.
One night, one phone call, one moment causes it to all crash down. Leo has my sister, and he wants to trade her for me. The one person I can trust is the only one who could also tear me apart… Detective Jeff Horn. He’s got secrets just like me, and seems to understand me better than I do myself.
How do I tell him my darkest secrets? How do I go back to a place that nearly broke me? How do I let him see Below the Surface?
Oh my gosh! Okay, I can't tell you what happens but I read this in two days! It is disturbing in some places, and it does have triggers. Jeff discovers that Lena was kidnapped and used in the sex trafficking trade, and he needs her to go back so he can break the case. This is an action packed story, that is sexy and wild and innocent and...I want to read the rest of the series! Definitely a 5-star read!
