Title: A Brutal Betrayal
Author: DC Renee
Release Date: September 30, 2014
Past. Everyone has one. It shapes the person they become. It determines the present. It even contributes to the future. And sometimes, people are thrown together in spite of it.
It was no secret that Megan Verona was raped. It crippled her being, turning her from a vibrant young woman to someone who feared intimacy. After years of struggling, she decided to seek help with a therapist, Declan Connors, in hopes of being able to finally have a relationship. Declan wanted to help Megan; he wanted to help everyone who sought his aid, but she was different. She consumed his thoughts until he could no longer deny his feelings. He hadn’t expected to fall for her and fall hard, but he did. It was a wonder when she returned some of his sentiment. But, like everyone, Declan also has a past, one riddled with pain and anguish, one he hadn’t fully dealt with.
If helping Megan brought out his own shadows, what did loving her do? How do both their pasts play a role in their future? Most importantly, can they conquer the past that threw them together?
How does someone move on from a tramatic event? Some people seem to be able to put it behind them and move one quickly. For others, the event can change their lives forever. Megan is one of those people. The story grabs your attention from the beginning by taking you back 7 years to that horrible event in Megan's life. It's difficult to read read, but at least it isn't too long.
Now, 7 years later, she's been through several therapists and has been referred to Declan. I thopught I would have a problem with Declan falling for Megan. After all, he is her therapist and that's a line people probably shouldn't cross. But things were told in such a way that it didn't bother me. It was more like this relationship would have developed whether he was her therapist or not.
I loved almost every moment of this emotional story. There were tears, there were smiles, and there was even a time or two I wanted to throw my Kindle and scream "NOOO!".
About me, huh? Hmmm, let's see...some fun facts: I'm in my late twenties, I'm married to a great guy who likes to drive me crazy sometimes, but I love it and him, I am one of those people that when asked to do something says "No...Yes" (yeah, I know, I'm stuck in the 90's), I am a total nerd (like you couldn't tell), I am a Trojan (Fight On!), I work in health insurance (fun times-well, I actually work with my sis, so I guess they technically are fun times), I am way too close to my fam and I feel like I'm forgetting something, hmm...oh yeah, I LOVE to read and write!!!!
