** NEW REVISED COLLEGE EDITION **
Kaeli Williams is hiding a secret. It isn’t one she wants to keep, but with a stepfather as well respected as hers, she isn’t sure anyone would listen to her even if she did tell.
No one would believe what went on behind the closed doors at home.
Not even her best friend.
It’s a secret that kills her to keep, especially because it protects him.
But she doesn’t have a choice. She has to keep it.
To protect her.
Noah Murphy is hiding a secret. It’s his job. But after eighteen months of working undercover as a drug pushing thug, he’s ready for a change.
With everything on the line and the end finally in sight, he just needs to keep focused, stay on his guard, and try not to get killed.
But Fate, it seems, is not so fond of secrets.
When blackmail forces Kaeli right into the middle of Noah’s dangerous world of hard core drug dealers, rapists and murderers, secrets quickly become ticking time bombs, trust becomes a necessity, and protective instincts become primal.
Sometimes, Fate just needs to be told no.
