Lies hurt. Lies destroy. I tried my best to understand why Ethan kept his secrets, but it was so hard. Until I realized that I couldn’t deny myself any longer—I needed to be with him. We needed each other.
The truth hurts, they say–and my pain cuts deep. While I was falling for Ethan, he was deceiving me the entire time. He held a huge secret, protected by his lies. When I discovered what he was hiding, the truth shook my world, threatening to ruin us forever. Ruin me. But I soon realized that what we share can’t be destroyed. The connection between us is too strong. It always has been. I can’t deny him any longer. And I can’t deny my truth: I’m in love with Ethan. I don’t want to let him go. While we’re trying our best to make this relationship work, other forces are fighting against us. My family, who wants to keep me safe. The media obsessed with my tragic past. The public that feeds off of it. Even Ethan’s father–the man who nearly destroyed me all those years ago. He’s doing his best to finish the job. Despite my love for Ethan, the doubts creep in, clouding my mind. Is he worth the pain? Will our love survive, or will we have no choice but to end it–end us–once and for all?
