Four years ago I lost my virginity on live, streaming television.

Too bad I wasn’t awake for it.

The video went viral. Of course it would. A Senator’s daughter on camera? Wouldn’t you click “share”? Besides, that’s what three of the four guys in the video did.


They shared me.

But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing?

Not one single thing.

That was my boyfriend, Drew.

And that was the last time I saw him.

Until today, when my father—now on a path to the White House—hired him as head of security for my new team as I return home after four years of “recovering” in an undisclosed location that involved white lab coats, needles, pills and damage control.

You see, the other three guys never went to jail. Never had charges pressed.

Never faced consequences.

Until today.

Game on.

    I downloaded this and the rest of the books in the series and read them all in one day. Definitely one of my favorites now. I will be reading them again soon.
  • Sooooo dumb

    By J3nnbunny
    It made absolutely no sense from the first page to the last. The main character Lindsey was dry, corny, naive and basically an adult with a five year old brain. Drew was a mix of many main characters from other famous books. Nice try but very bad storyline

  • Trigger warning but very good

    By Janelle Reed
    This book... just wow. Let’s start off with I couldn’t put it down! And if it wasn’t going on midnight I would definitely be opening book 2 immediately. Though this book may be a trigger for some people... I has an amazing story line and great flow to it. I can not wait to see where this story goes. Bravo

    This book is fantastic! It covers every emotion and is as suspenseful as a Hitchcock movie! I know I'll be reading the next in the series very soon.

  • Excellent Quick Read

    I downloaded this book for free from and as in Facebook and was not disappointed. I would recommend this author and series to any reader that enjoys suspense plots and women's romance novels. Read this book in a day and it was worth it. The character and plot development forces you to keep reading because each chapter reveals a little bit more to help get you to the understand the extent of what happened that fateful night that started the plot in motion. The characters are extremely likable and the plot is completely relevant to today, speaking to sexual assault and how it affects people differently and the way people process. Granted not everyone has the luxury of being secluded from the world for 4 years after bit nevertheless it's an interesting plot twist that is relatable.
  • The Three Part Book, Part One

    By cici-online
    There's no doubt Meli Raine can write and keep a reader's attention, unfortunately, she's part of the new author trend, the serial novel. These are often short romantic suspense stories that aren't resolved in the first book, or the second for that matter, forcing the reader who wants to know the outcome to buy the successive books. And, that alone is the reason for the 3 star rating; the writing deserves much more. The plot is original, the heroine is likable, the villains are truly villainous, the hero is handsome and heroic and the action moves swiftly. If you give in and buy all three they are good beach or rainy day books. I binge read all of them in a day!
