Publisher's Summary

Secrets and scandals are a way of life for the Murdochs of Chesterton, Virginia. But the lies that bind them may end up tearing them apart.

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.

I am so disappointed. these women are weak and unrealistic. Some of the characters were downright behaving stupidly. I hope part 3 is better this was average

Pretty good

This was a pretty good book it takes a little minute to pick up the story line. But once you it gets rolling it takes off. I'm about to start part 3 now just too see what happens next...🤗🤗

Please don't take forever with the sequeal.

Hurry with the sequeal. Need to find out what happens wit Evans crazy ex, as well as who shoots Dontell. Please don't keep us on suspense for to long.

Great Read

The series is great. Part 2 was a good read. Some parts were just so unbelievably frustrating I found myself getting mad at the characters. I must say the women in this series are just outright weak and stupid. But it definitely makes for a good binge on an audio book series. I highly recommend!

Did Antonio have to choke a b*tch? Woah!!

Did not see that one coming!!! And here I thought my disdain about Paulette was going to be the focus of my review.

keeps you wanting more

this version started off way better that the first. although I didn't care to hear of the references from the 1st story, it didn't taint my enjoyment. This one is also less steamy than the first book but the story line reminds me of something from a movie. good read!

I should read this book instead of listening <br /><br />

good story line but the narrator didn't do a good job with the different voices I would enjoy it more reading than listening to her
