Description
"Shelly Ellis is a new favorite to our list."—Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling authors With his drama-filled marriage behind him, Evan Murdoch has finally found happiness with his longtime friend turned fiancée, Leila Hawkins. But when his party boy brother, Terrence, is seriously injured in a car accident, a gossiping press puts the family back in the spotlight. Soon Terrence could face a lawsuit—and much worse, if his vengeful half-brother, Dante, has his way. Terrence's only bright spot is journalist C.J. Aston—but is she really on his side, or does she have another motive?. . . While Terrence struggles to recover from his injuries, Paulette, the little sister of the family, is struggling with a secret: she's pregnant, and unsure whether the father is her blackmailing ex or her husband. Amid the turmoil, Evan does his best to stay above the fray, but a shocking revelation makes that impossible—he's a Murdoch after all, and trouble seems to be their business . . . "Secrets abound in this full-bodied tale." —USAToday.com "This fantastic novel is replete with scandal, entitlement, treachery and passion up to the surprising end." —RT Book Reviews "Drama, hot sex, and betrayals are all wrapped up in this addictive yet well-written story." —AAMBC Book Club on Best Kept Secrets
