Tribulation and Truths
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: NA romantic suspense
Release Date: August 20th
When Ana revealed her suspicions to Jackson about the circumstances surrounding his father’s death, she never expected it to be the catalyst for a series of events that could change everything. It was supposed to save him, not push him away. But now Ana is left watching the person she loves more than anything, lose himself to vengeance.
Jackson has spent most of his life loyal to the man he calls Uncle. But since learning that Marcus Donohue might have been responsible for the death of his father, Jackson is consumed with the need for revenge. Even if it means hurting the people he loves, and going against everything he believes in, to uncover what happened.
Will the truth finally set Jackson free or will it ruin his last chance at happiness with Ana… and a life out from under the shadows of the Donohues?
Tribulations will be overcome, truths will be revealed. Welcome to Chastity Falls.
Dennis stepped off the cage and blew out a long breath. “She doesn’t know, does she?”
“No. It’s for the best. Ana thinks we’re planning how we move forward on this together.”
Over the last couple of weeks, the pieces of the puzzle had slowly been slotting into place, and more and more I was realizing it was something set into motion a long time ago.
“If shit goes south, I need to know you’ll protect her. Even if it means getting her out of Chastity Falls. She’d never leave if I asked her to, she’s stubborn and she thinks we’re in this together.”
I hated lying to Ana, but it was better for her to draw her own conclusions than for me to admit that only one of us could walk away from this—Marcus or me. It would crush her. I couldn’t do it to her. To us.
“You know I will, but does it have to go down like this?” Dennis’ Adam’s apple bobbed and the desperation in his voice caught me off guard. “Is there no other way? Maybe we could go to someone for help?”
Scrubbing a hand through my hair I leaned back against the lockers and said, “This is the only way. We both know it. This is exactly the way Marcus planned it.”
The door swung open and the rest of the team filed in. I threw Dennis a look that I hope conveyed my gratitude.
I owed him my life.
I just hoped I didn’t have to pay up.
***ARC Provided for an Honest Review***
The third book in the series leaves off with Jackson and Ana back together. The scary part is that Jackson has taken over Braiden’s spot as number 1 to Marcus. Of course the only reason Jackson agreed was to learn if Marcus really did kill his father and to avenge his death.
Jackson… now working number 1 under Marcus has put a lot of stress on him. He is doing all this stuff and dealing with the team again which he can’t stand some of the guys anymore. Not after everything that had happened in the last book. On top of that Marcus is sending him on other jobs that he has never done before and he seems to be getting in even deeper with Marcus. More than he ever wanted to. The only means behind Jackson is to find out what happened to his father.
Ana has been dealing with the transition as well. Jackson has been nothing but distant with her and they seem to never talk… well not about their problems anyways. They just small talk and have sex to avoid their problems or growing concerns. It seems as though the two of them are falling apart. Until Jackson opens up to her and then they both seem to feel closer again.
Dennis is in this book much more than before. He is sort of what Jackson was for Braiden but different at the same time. Dennis keeps Jackson in check, but also tells him how it is (to a point without crossing boundaries). He is always sticking up for Ana and when Jackson is having issues, Dennis always tells him to talk to Ana about his problems. Not that he doesn’t want to hear them but he knows Ana wants Jackson to talk to her about what is really going on. Dennis is almost like a big brother for Ana in ways.
You definitely need to be paying attention to every detail and word in this book. There are so many hidden truths and secrets. I kept trying to guess what is going to happen next, but when I thought I had something figured out, another twist is put out there.
I can’t wait to read the next book in Braiden’s point of view and after he is out of prison….
