Valentina Cruz no longer exists.

One moment, she was wrapped in Emilio’s arms, melting into his kiss. The next, she was witnessing the unthinkable: a murder in cold blood, ordered by her father and carried out by her boyfriend. When Emilio pulled the trigger, Valentina disappeared. She made a split-second decision to shed her identity and flee her life of privilege, leaving the glittering parties and sultry nightlife of Miami far behind.

She doesn’t know how to explain to herself what she saw. All she knows now is that nothing she believed about her family, her heart, or Emilio’s love, was real.

She can change her name and deny her past, but Valentina can’t run from the truth. The lines between right and wrong, and trust and betrayal, will be blurred beyond recognition as she untangles the deceptions of the two men she once loved and races to find her own truth.

This sounds like such a great premise. A thriller and (hopefully) action-packed story. I like that this girl just takes off on her own, and I’m really hoping that she’s competent at it. I also hope she doesn’t get all wimpy and want her boyfriend back. I’m also kind of hoping Emilio and her dad are completely un-redeemable and vicious. I know that sounds weird, but it would be kind of a fun change of pace.
What are you waiting for this week?

  1. Yes, I need to read a thriller (it’s fall, I’m starting to be in that mood!). I hadn’t heard of it, but it will definitely be on my list. Thanks for stopping by my WoW 🙂


  2. Ah, oh gosh. I don’t know what it is with me, but I seem to be really in the mood to read YA thrillers/mysteries since I never had before. Unless you count the first Pretty Little Liars. 🙂 I’m adding this one to my Goodreads list right now. Wow, I really love that neon color going on in the cover. The title is great too.


  3. This sounds so good! For some reason I thought it was paranormal, but I enjoy thrillers so I’m adding this to the list. And love the cover!! Thanks for stopping by my wow:-)


  4. This one sounds SO amazing! I have an arc copy of it, and I’ll probably be reading it next week, so I’m really excited to see how it turns out! And the cover is really gorgeous!
