Truth: From over a thousand miles away, I watched on the screen of my phone as two men murdered my wife. And I was helpless to save her.

Consumed by hate and rage, I spent four years running from my memories.

Until a shattered woman gave me a reason to stop.

Cora lived in a nightmare, but through sheer force of will, she’d turned it into something beautiful. She had a smile that could pierce the darkest soul. And with one glance, she shredded mine.

Lie: I was only there for a fresh start.
Lie: I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
Lie: There was nothing I could do to save her, either.

But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe

Color me confused! I want the TRUTH ABOUT THE LIES in this book! I mean, my head is spinning and I need someone to unscramble it. What’s worse, I asked a friend (who has read it) for help and she wasn’t any at all, I mean, the conversation ended with her calling me a whore and telling me I have confused her! (Oh, really? I doubt that, you sly little … )

The long and short of it, Cora is a madam of sorts, more like a self-appointed mother living in the penthouse apartment in the sky a 3rd-floor apartment of a dilapidated apartment building filled with Guerreros women. Some work on the streets, some are evaluating their life choices, and some, like Cora, are praying for escape.

Penn is a hunk of burning guilt! He’s a man on a mission to find the people who murdered his wife and make them pay. Lo and behold, he’s wound up at that very dilapidated apartment building and is now the new maintenance man. He wants and needs Cora, but his search for the truth is keeping him lying to her which further adds to his guilt. Cora wants and needs Penn, also, in more ways than one. But, she too has lies. It is her truth that could very well be their demise.

When Cora reveals part of the truth, Penn acts relieved but speaks in circles, Cora doesn’t question him, even though I’m yelling, “WAIT, WHAT, WTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?” Cora keeps her damn mouth shut and goes to sleep! Who does that? I NEED ANSWERS!! ****throws up hands****

Then it ends.

I give up. I’m taking a Xanax and going to bed!



About Aly Martinez

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
