Samantha Connelly has been on the run since she was seven years old. Forced into Witness Protection after her father saw something he shouldn’t has caused her to learn to blend in. She’s moved, changed her name, and her appearance more times than she can count over the last nineteen years all along wondering if it will ever end. Her handler, Kevin, along with her parents have assured her that it won’t be forever, but as the years tick by she’s slowly given up hope that she’ll ever be normal.
Now at 26, Sam has moved to Chicago and is working at the Rusty Nail as a bartender calling herself Mallory. Her father passed away two years before leaving her to finish what he started…put away the ‘bad guys’. Living on the run in hiding has been harder than she ever imagined, and finding love has always been out of the question. Who would want to be with someone they couldn’t be honest with? She’s resigned herself to being alone, until… Brian walks in.
Brian Sellers is everything Sam has been trying to avoid her entire life. He’s clad in leather and torn jeans, donning several tattoos… all-in-all a bad boy. When their eyes connect one evening, everything she’s ever told herself falls to the wayside as an indescribable draw pulls her to him. He’s sexy and domineering, and something about him reminds her of a boy she used to know.
The more time she spends with Brian, the more she wants him, but…Brian is not everything he seems to be. When Sam happens to see the tat on his wrist, the same tat that her father saw all those years ago, she realizes she’s flirting with the enemy. Brian has no idea that he’s hanging out with the one girl his boss wants dead.
Can Sam hide her identity from the first man she’s had real feelings for? What will Brian do when he finds out who she really is? Can love really conquer all?
Being Nobody is the first book in The Witness series.
Lori's 5 star review
First of all, thank you for this ARC and allowing me to read and review it. This is the second series of Heather's I've had the honor of reviewing and it is just as amazing as the others. What a life to have to live for almost your whole life, being on the run in protective custody, Not being able to make friends, make a place to really call home because of never knowing when you would be found and have to run again. There's so much fear and sadness in Sam/Mallory. But when she meets a guy in the bar that she works at one night, she begins to hope for a normal life, one that includes a family and one place to live. Brian just might be him, or so she hopes. Lots of hot sex anyway!
Too much more and I'll leave a spoiler and that's a no no for me, so go grab
Being Nobody (witness #1) and read it for yourself
