I had no idea how much I would love Alex the day he walked into my life.
He changed everything.
The way I breathed.
The way I thought.
The way I loved.
He brought me back to life.
He gave me strength and a safe place to land.

And then he broke me.

Finding Emilia was a chance to do something good for once in my life.
I wanted to change.
She believed I was her savior.
I ached to be.
She found her way into my heart and claimed it as her safe place.
I should be telling her the truth about me…instead I break her with lies.

Torn between two men; one was what I needed, the other was what I wanted.
One man was safe and the other was dangerous.
But both men would lay down their lives to save me.

ATF agent Sam Cortez is fighting to bring down the Estrada family empire, which was built on murder and corruption.
Alex Estrada did what was needed to keep me safe…and paid with his life.

Starting over as I try to rebuild my life, it’s clear that the past is never what it seems.

What no one knew was that we were all bound by lies.



Pure evil dances in his dark brown eyes, and hate flashes across the light brown skin of his face as he looks down on me, his gun pointed at my head. As I stare at the barrel of the gun, images of the things I used to fear flash through my mind, but nothing compares to the moment you know you’re going to die…and then hearing the gunshot before everything goes black again.


That’s all I’m capable of feeling in this moment. My lungs burn. My heart aches. My head screams.





That’s all I feel.

Bound & Broken Series

Broken by Lies

Rebecca Shea wrote one of my favorite books so I was really excited to read Broken By Lies. Though I did enjoy it, it did not resonate the way Unbreakable did for me. I did find it to be suspenseful romance with so many twists!


Emilia and her mother are barely surviving, but they have each other. Some days are harder than others and some days they do not know where their next meal will come from, but somehow they find their way, together. Until the day Emilia loses her mother in the most horrible way possible. Alone, scared and with no other resources, she leaves everything she knows looking for the one person who may help.


But the help she hoped to receive does not come. Now she has to find a way to survive. But on the first night she arrived in Phoenix, she meets a mysterious man who has quite the impact on her.  Somehow he ends up saving her and offers her a safe haven. But this is a stranger. Should she trust him?


Alex is not a good man. His life was not what he had planned, but he has responsibilities he feels he needs to honor. But then he meets a woman that makes him see a future he never imagined. But he knows she cannot be a part of his life. But he truly wants to help her. But what will be the cost of letting her in?


This book is suspenseful with twists and turns that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The attraction between Emilia and Alex sparks quickly and burns hot. But there are so many secrets, how can their relationship survive? Then there is the other man who has his own secrets, but also wants Emilia, or does he. What is the truth? Who can she trust?


Though I sometimes found Emilia to naïve for her own good and Alex not the scary mafia man he was meant to portray, I found Broken By Lies intriguing. I enjoyed the story and found myself wanting to see what would happen next. I loved the twists and could not wait to see what would happen next.


Bound by Lies

Bound by Lies by Rebecca Shea picks up right where book 1 ended. And like the first book, there is suspense, twists and turns and so much angst. Nothing is like it seems. The truth is out and Emilia can no longer hide behind the lies.


This review will be hard to write because you really need to experience this story. So much happens in this final book and I do not want to give anything away. Emilia is devastated after the events that happened at the end of the first book. She is lost and alone again. Sam wants to help her and be there for her, but he has his own motives. Can she trust him?


This book had so much going on from start to finish. I could not put the book down at all. Emilia is once again starting over. But is everything really like it seems? Can her heart let go of the past and move forward or will the past come back to haunt her? And even now, is she truly safe or is danger still lurking around her?


I loved this second book. The author gave us a story that keeps us drawn in and consumed. We get more background on the characters and began to understand them more. There were so many emotions and questions on how it would all end.


This was a great conclusion to this story. With so much happening, it really was full of the unexpected. I held my breath until the very end. But I loved that Emilia knew her heart and followed it. The heart wants what it wants. A great read!
