For every action, there is a reaction. 

People aren’t always who they say they are. Everyone has their secrets. Some are more evil than I ever thought imaginable. 

I was left broken and alone after my boyfriend was murdered in my bar. 

An old acquaintance moves into Liam’s home and a spark is ignited deep inside me. 

Becoming vulnerable made me weak, and I never saw it coming. 

When obsession takes over, lies and deceit can be killer.
 
 
 
 
Watching movers pack away his things and throw them into the truck is so impersonal. Tossing the boxes into a truck with no thought as to what they are handling. I wish I had the strength to be the one who packed it all away, but I couldn’t. It was hard enough to pack up my things. I moved my stuff out of the home two weeks ago, but the majority of everything in that home was his. 
 
He was my other half. My soul mate. One morning, we were completely in love and talking about starting a family, and then by nightfall, I had found my boyfriend barely alive in the storage room of the bar I owned. I rode with him as he was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, praying he would pull through even though the look on the paramedics’ faces told me otherwise. After what seemed like forever in the waiting room, doctors gave me the news he didn’t make it. The police questioned me extensively, and later that night, I came home to his empty house. From that day on, I have been on autopilot. 
 
 
 
Leighton Riley resides in Dallas, Tx and works in real estate for her day job. She writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense. Sinfully, Regretfully, and Deceitfully can be read in order or as standalones. Sinfully and Regretfully take place around the same time frame and can even be read in reverse order (will give more background on Payton and Ryder's story). Tate's story, Deceitfully, finishes off the series. She's also the author of the romantic suspense novel, Catalyst.
 
 

This seems to be the theme with this book. No one knew the name or synopsis.
I like the cover and jumped at the chance to read it. That's truly how I pick most of my books 😬.
This is my first by Leighton. She does have several other books available.
The book starts out a bit somber Tinsley is trying to pick up the pieces after her boyfriend is killed. But not everthing is always how it seems. Secrets, omissions  and love after a loss. 
I like Tins and Noah. I started out liking Maguire and then he left me speechless.
 I liked where the book was going, the climax was good and I couldn't read fast enough. Then at least for me it fell flat. Everything seemed to be going to fast. The conflict was to easily resolved and removed. Great potential.
Overall it was a good book. 
Happy Reading!
