As an ATF agent, bringing down the Estrada cartel has been my sole mission. I’m a skilled agent, determined and fearless, but a relentless pursuit and a willingness to risk everything almost killed me.
A year later, when an opportunity in Los Angeles presents itself, I jump at the chance to start over and rebuild the career and life I almost lost.
Kate Stevens was not part of my new plan. I never expected she would be the one to save me from my past. She was exactly what I needed—smart, beautiful and independent. I finally have a future I look forward to.
Only nothing in my life ever goes according to plan. Losing Kate is not an option, but fate seems poised to ruin me, and there isn’t a damn thing I can do about it.

I’m going to be really honest for a minute and tell you I wasn’t the hugest fan of Sam when he tried to steal his brother’s girl. No matter what had transpired between them, it was not okay. I did love every other aspect of Sam though, he was truly one of the good ones, and he deserved so much more than what life had given him. I was so happy when I found out Rebecca Shea was giving him his own story and hopefully happiness all his own.
At the end of Bound by Lies we knew there was a mysterious Kate in Sam’s life, but we had no insight into who she was or what she meant to him and I was DYING to meet this woman he cared for enough to introduce to his brother and the woman he’d been in love with. I was not disappointed in her at all; she was perfect for Sam. Strong, independent, and smart Kate was everything Sam deserved and more.
Betrayed by Lies wasn’t as high action as the two previous books and for that, my heart was very thankful. I’m not sure how much more I could watch Sam go through, he’d already had more than his share of trouble throughout his life. The high action intensity of Broken and Bound was replaced by deeply emotional moments and a scare that would be harrowing for anyone. I found Betrayed by Lies to be a far more emotionally driven book and I love Rebecca for continuing the intensity of this series without sending my blood pressure through the roof at every page turn.
Rebecca Shea always makes me connect emotionally with her characters. The way she writes them makes them feel real and flawed and like people I’d like to be friends with. That’s what makes her books so wonderful to read, the care and concern for the characters that she fosters in her readers. Each of her books leaves me feeling like I’ve spent time with a great friend, helping them find their Happy Ever After.
She shakes her head and laughs. “I don’t judge. It sounds to me like your therapy has helped you see what it is you need versus what you thought you wanted, and I’m so happy you’ve recovered from your injury and you’re able to return to work. So many agents aren’t as lucky as you.” There’s a spark of sadness in her eyes. A look that only the friends and family of those in law enforcement get when they think of those who aren’t as fortunate as I am.
I nod in agreement. “Which is why I was excited to take this opportunity here in L.A. with your brother. He’s giving me another chance to prove myself. California is a fresh start for me.” I smile at her and she smiles in return, and it’s soft, caring, and does things to me that I’m not sure I’m ready for.
“So what do you do?” I ask, turning the questions on her. I’m done spilling my garbage. I want to hear about her.
She drops her eyes from mine and takes another drink of wine before resting it on her thigh. “I’m an attorney. I do corporate law, mostly negotiating and reviewing contracts. It’s extremely boring to someone who’s not interested in legalese, but it keeps me busy and it pays well.” She shrugs.
“Do you ever end up in court?”
“No. Ironically, if there is ever litigation, we typically hire outside counsel. Sounds weird, doesn’t it?” She scrunches her nose up and smiles.
“Not really.” I shake my head. “I get why. You’re an expert at what you do. The attorneys you hire are experts in litigation. Everyone does what they do best.”
Our conversation slows, but it’s not uncomfortable in the silence. We both relax in the quiet and jut ‘be’. There’s something to be said for that level of comfort when you’re in the presence of someone else.
“So, when do you think you’ll be moving in?” she asks.
“I’m having some stuff delivered this weekend, so I hope Saturday is okay?” I raise my eyebrow at her, hoping it’s not an inconvenience.
She smiles. “Saturday is perfect.”
“I’m still waiting on a truck from Phoenix, so that’ll be sometime next week, but I’m ready to get out of that hotel. Speaking of that hotel, I really should get going. It’s getting late, and I didn’t mean to keep you up.” I stand up and she follows suit. We both carry our empty glass and beer bottle to the kitchen, and Kate swipes something off the center island.
“This is the key for the house.” She dangles the ring on her pointer finger. “You can have your alarm system installed anytime. If you need anything secured before then, I have a safe and an alarm on this house. You’re welcome to keep anything in here.”
“I appreciate that.” The soft tips of her fingers brush against my palm as she places the key in my hand.
“See you Saturday,” she says, her voice barely above a whisper.
“See you Saturday,” I return. For the first time in a long time, I have something to look forward to.
