BOOK SYNOPSIS

Bobby had one last mission to complete before he committed his life to Lisa. All he had to do was get home and put the ring on her finger. But he was captured and held while Lisa was told he was dead. After being rescued near death, Bobby is haunted by the events he survived in the past few months. The darkness won’t release its hold on him. How can he ask Lisa to share this new existence?

Lisa has tried to move on with her life, even though each night brings dreams of her soulmate. Guilt wracks her heart, she can’t force herself to love Brad like he should be loved, but she can’t let him go. Lisa knows she should cut out the part of her still grasping onto Bobby but doing so would kill her.

Brad knows Lisa will never love him the same way she loved Bobby, but he just needs her in his arms. Brad plans to hold onto Lisa and build the life he’s been dreaming of since sixth grade.

This is the heart-wrenching conclusion to The Walking Series. Three people will come to grips with the fact that love is not always enough, and sometimes you just have to walk away.

PROLOGUE

Bobby

I can’t believe I have to go back in two days. There wasn’t enough time. Two weeks is just too short of a leave – I’ve only seen her three times. Once leaving school when I hid in the back of the parking lot. Once she and her mother were packing up to go to Pennsylvania for Christmas; and yesterday she was sitting out on her dock. I was across the river hiding behind a boat just to gaze at her. I feel like such a stalker but my heart aches for her. I haven’t felt whole since I left for basic training.

Now in just two short days I have to report to my Special Forces team. The casualty rate is fifty-nine percent so my odds of making it out in one piece aren’t in my favor. We’re going to the wilds of Afghanistan into the heart of Taliban territory. Along with normal patrols, my team could be called at any time to take out confirmed cells.

Looking into the mirror I finish brushing my teeth. I look much different than when I left eighteen months ago. Gone is the shaggy hair Lisa loved to jerk on while we kissed, now it’s barely more than stubble on my head. I grew two inches and put on thirty pounds of muscle. That’s what happens when you carry seventy-five pounds of gear for ten hours a day. I wonder what she will think when she sees me.
I can’t say I am sorry for leaving this town, that would be a lie. The Army has given my life purpose. Before enlisting the best I could have hoped for was being a plumber or electrician’s assistant until I could get a license. Now when I finally get out of the Army I can get a private security job. Hell, I could even qualify for Secret Service. I might even become a cop. A cop’s salary isn’t even close to what Lisa’s father makes but it’s nothing to sneeze at and it’s an honorable career. Much better than the minimum paying factory job that her father said I would end up in.

I shake my head. There is no use thinking about a future that is over two years away. I have thirty-two months left before I can plan a future, that’s if I make it back alive. But tonight I have to see her one more time. I am hoping she will talk to me; she was pretty mad when I left. I had to break up with her; it wasn’t fair to ask Lisa to wait. At sixteen you shouldn’t be tied down to an absent boyfriend.

I hear the music as I walk out my door. Joe’s house is just four away from mine and all the neighbors know by now that this party happens each year. As long as the kids stay inside or in his backyard, no one will call the cops to break it up. My heart rate climbs as I get closer to the door. The front door is open and I can see the crowd through the storm door. Patty and April are just inside so I know I won’t be getting in unnoticed. Taking a deep breath I open the door, “Holy shit!” Patty screeches, “Bobby Harber, where the hell did you come from?” She closes her arms around me. Patty lives across the street from me and we’ve been friends all my life. She is one of the only ones that know how hard I had it growing up. “I’ve missed you,” she whispers in my ear as she hugs me close.

“I missed you too, Red,” I tell her using my childhood name for her. “I’m sorry I don’t write more.” She is the only one I write to now. Well the only one that gets sent the letters I write, I have hundreds written to Lisa stashed away and never posted.

Patty’s arm gets ripped away from me, “Don’t be hogging him all to yourself, you bitch,” April says stepping into my arms. “Damn Bobby, you look good enough to eat,” she laughs while leaning back looking me up and down. April’s always been a flirt but she wouldn’t leave Greg for anything. “She’s in the kitchen, last I saw her,” April winks at me, “Go get your girl.”

The best and worst part of our group is there are no secrets. My being here for just the party is an illusion that won’t last long to the friends who know me. I turn towards the kitchen, “I’ll see you both later,” but I don’t really mean it.

“Just as long as you’re here tomorrow for clean-up crew,” Patty yells after me. New Year’s Day always starts with cleaning Joe’s house before we sit, eating and drinking leftovers while watching the games on TV. It will feel good to do something so normal so I turn and give her a thumbs up. I receive greetings from everyone on my way back to the kitchen, they all comment on how I’ve gotten bigger and how happy they are I’m back in one piece. I scan the kitchen when I enter, there are a bunch of guys sitting at the table probably going to start a game of quarters, I wave at them but I’m not here for drinking games. I’m surprised to see Brad here, he never really hung around our group but if I know him he’s still sniffing around Lisa. He always rubbed me the wrong way, I know he wants her but she only feels friendship towards him. Lisa’s not in here so I grab a beer and make my way into the family room where Joe sets up the dance floor.

Joe is standing to the right of the doorway and I bump my shoulder into him as I search the room for Lisa. I find her just as Joe shakes my hand, “I wasn’t expecting to see you,” he says patting my back.

“Where else would I be tonight?” I joke back, my eyes never leaving Lisa. She spots me and stops, her caramel eyes widen and I read so many emotions there; surprise, hurt, want, love – that surprises me, I thought she would hate me by now. I know Joe is saying something to me but I’m totally ensnared by Lisa; she’s changed too. Her hair cascades around her with curls and I want to bury my hands and face in it. She’s wearing a cute jeans skirt that shows off her long legs which I want wrapped around me, how many times have I dreamed about the silky feel of them? Her blouse is almost see through and the silhouette of her bra teases my eyes, making me ache to taste her nipples again. I’m getting hard and I haven’t even gotten close to her yet.

Her eyes break contact with me when someone bumps into her and she turns away threading through the group dancing to Gimme More by Britney Spears. I start to chase after her but Joe restrains me with a hand, “She’s had a hard time moving on, Bobby. Be gentle with her.” I nod acknowledging the statement but it doesn’t stop me, I physically need to hold her. I follow her and see she’s talking to Debbie; I’ll be hearing from Jimmy about this, I promised him I wouldn’t get anywhere near Lisa but I can’t help myself. I step closer to her and turn her around running my hands down her arms, “Hey beautiful,” I say as I try to draw her into my arms.

She pushes against my chest, “Really Bobby, you just show up here and expect me to just fall into your arms? Sixteen months and not a word. Not even a letter, email, or a damn phone call!”

Stopping her from pulling away I stammer, “I missed you, baby. I just couldn’t be where I was and think about you too.” I pull her into me and lay my cheek against her head. “Please, baby, just let me hold you. I couldn’t stay away from you anymore. I only have two more days before I have to leave again and I want to spend them with you. Let me hold you and just talk to you. I miss your voice and the feel of you in my arms.” Her smell envelopes me and I feel like I’m home.

She’s tense for a few seconds then her arms go around my waist and she presses her whole body against me, “I missed you too.”

I pull away so I can see her face and the tears streaking down her beautiful face kill me. “Don’t cry, baby. I can’t stand it when you cry.” I lower my head to her and ghost my lips against hers. I want to devour her but I need to let her take the lead. She gasps and opens to me and I plunge my tongue in to taste her; beer and mint mix with her unique flavor and my body reacts to the one person who has the power to affect my soul. My heart beats wildly in my chest and my dick fills to the point of pain. I tilt her head to give me better access and the whole room fades into the background. I suck on her lower lip and she moans into my mouth as I bury my hands in her hair. She runs her hands over my chest and I can’t help it as my hand moves to her ass and I grind against her.

My mouth leaves hers and I make my way to her ear, “I need to be alone with you, baby,” I whisper. “Let’s get out of here. My house is so close and there’s no one home.” I pull away and take her hand, “Will you come with me?”

She nods her head, “I have to tell Jodi though. I’m her ride.”

I look around and Debbie is still standing there, her eyes like daggers, “Hey Debbie, Lisa and I are going to my house to talk. Can you tell Jodi when you see her?”

Debbie looks at Lisa, “Lisa, you are okay with this?”

Lisa glances back at me with glistening eyes, “Yeah Deb, I won’t be too long. We’ll be at his house. If we’re not back by midnight send one of the guys down to get us.”

Debbie nods and says, “Okay, I hope you know what you’re doing.”

I don’t wait for Lisa to re-think about what’s happening, I grab her hand and drag her behind me to the door. She gasps when the cold air hits her, I should have let her get her coat but stopping now is not an option. I yank her closer to me, surrounding her with my heat as we make our way to my house. I slam the door open and it tries to close on us but I haul her through the opening then press her against it, “Oh God, baby, I’ve missed you so much,” I say lowering my mouth to hers again. My hands on her cheeks holding her in place for my assault, grinding my cock into her, “You are more beautiful than I remember. I just want to be inside of you,” my body is on fire for her.

I pick her up and her legs wrap around me just like I fantasized about before. I want to hold her to me forever but I lower her onto the couch, following her down, bracing myself above her. I look at her below me and think how lucky I am that she didn’t reject me. I wouldn’t have blamed her and I feel like shit that I’m leaving again in two days and don’t have the strength to leave her alone. Her heart is in her eyes and I wonder if she can see the love I hold for only her reflected in my eyes. I can’t stop myself from touching I ease her shirt over her head then take her mouth again before making my way down her throat, over the pulse racing there, along her collarbone as I push the cups of her bra down to release those perfect breasts. I suckle her nipple and my cock jerks in my pants, “I missed the taste of you, baby, no one tastes like you. You are perfect.” I unclasp her bra and pull it off as her breath starts coming in gasps. I’ve made her come with my fingers and mouth but tonight I need to be inside her when she comes. My hand moves down her side and she shivers underneath me, god I love how responsive she is to me. It kills me that I wasn’t her first but I couldn’t take her virginity and leave, what kind of douchebag would that have made me. I drop my hand to her thigh and push up her skirt, her panties are drenched and I can smell her arousal. “God you are so wet for me, baby. I am going to make you come so hard,” I press the palm of my hand against the wet silk. “I need to taste you, baby. I missed having my tongue in you. “

I pull her skirt and panties off she spreads her legs for me and my heart misses a beat, “I almost forgot how beautiful you were.” I lower my head and inhale her scent, so unique to her. I part her folds with my fingers and lave her with my tongue in one long swipe. She arches her back, nearly pushing us both off the couch. I capture her leg and throw it over my shoulder and attack. I suck, lick and nibble on her clit as I ease a finger into her. She calls out my name and I almost come in my pants.

“God you are still so tight, baby. I still wish I was your first,” I confess to her.

“You will be Bobby. Steve and I never got this far,” she says. And just like that it’s like someone threw a bucket of ice water on me. I can’t take her virginity. I’m not asshole enough to make her a hook-up. I stop and look at her, “What do you mean? You guys were together for almost a year.” I don’t understand.
“He wasn’t you. It has always been you, Bobby.”

I sit up. “I can’t be your first, Lisa. I am leaving in two days. I won’t do that to you.”

“But you are the only one I want, Bobby,” Lisa cries. “Please, I want you so much.”

God I want her so much but I can’t, won’t be that guy, “Get dressed, Lisa, we’re going back to the party.” I stand and hold my hand out to her.

“Fuck you asshole! You think you can come back and I won’t be a virgin anymore so it would be ok to fuck me and leave me? That’s why you came back isn’t it? You’re an asshole!” I wince at her words but as much as I want her it wouldn’t be right. I’ve probably just blown any chance at ever having a life with her and my heart is breaking.

Lisa grabs her clothes and gets dressed then stomps to the door. I follow her wanting to be near her even if she hates me.

“Just where do you think you’re going? You need to stay here. You’ve already fucked up my night. The least you could do is let me try to salvage my New Year’s.”

“I just want to make sure you get back okay,” I whisper. There are tears on her cheeks again and I put them there.

“It’s four houses, Bobby. I will be fine but you will always be an asshole.” She turns and walks away from me and I let her. Leaning against the door frame I can’t believe this night ended any hope I held of future happiness. My heart just left and I’m never getting it back.

I’ve spent many years crafting stories in my brain. Finally, after the encouragement from those that love and support me the most, I put my first story out by self-publishing in 2013.
That first milestone created a writing monster in me that couldn’t be stopped and filled a void I cannot explain. Each story is a true gift from my heart and a sacrifice from my soul, since I find it difficult to let the characters go.
At home in Texas, my husband and I share our life with children that mean the world to us and include a couple of fur babies. When we aren’t busy watching sports and betting on the game, we are entertaining with friends.
I do have a writing cave, but honestly, most of my work comes from the kitchen, the heartbeat of any home. Since noise doesn’t disturb me too much when writing, I can write and keep the pulse on the family at the same time. And… Possibly enjoy my favorite, sinful treat… Cookie dough!
The writer-reader world is my lifeline. I’m addicted and each time I get a message from a reader, I’m thrilled. There’s quite a few stories planned for the next several months. I’m hoping the readers fall in love with my next series, The Creek Series. A story that is guaranteed to bring out all the emotions.

Review
Review by Jennifer: Poppy Taylor was content with life and didn’t need any relationship drama to weigh it down. She was on her way to rising up in the ranks of her industry, but then Riley Huntington happens.Riley has always had an on again off again relationship with Alexis. That’s just how they worked. He was busy, she was busy. Sometimes she didn’t have time for him, but she always came back and worked things out, until one day he realized there was something better.Through it all Poppy knows she has to be careful. She doesn’t know if she could handle having her heart crushed by Riley, but Alexis keeps coming around and she doesn’t know if Riley still wants to work things out with her or not.

Poppy has a lot tough decision to make on whether she should trust Riley or focus on her career. She’s done a great job of avoiding things just like this, but she’s not sure if Riley can ever been completely avoided. Riley keeps saying he’s done with Alexis and he only wants her, but can they last?

I loved reading Poppy’s story! It’s about time Savannah!

Everything
on the guest floor was rattling from the bass of the music blaring throughout
the rooms. I was sure that I had drunk close to my weight in tequila alone, not
to mention the large number of whiskey shots I had thrown back, but I was still
standing and I was feeling good; no, better than good: I was feeling fan-fucking-tastic as I moved my body
along with the beat of the rap song that was playing.  I threw my hands in the air above my head
before bringing them back down, trailing across my body as they went. Sweat was
beading across my collarbone as a few drops trailed their way down the valley
between my breasts. The melody was enchanting me, making me move provocatively
with every beat and I loved it.
Grinding
my hips from side-to-side, I felt a large body step up to my swaying backside.
Most guys were my height or only slightly taller, but whomever was behind me
was taller than the average Joe. I continued to rock my hips back and forth as
I spun around to face my dancing partner and smiled widely when I took in
Riley’s large frame behind me. He looked as sexy as ever: black jeans hanging
loosely on his hips with a plain forest-green shirt stretched tightly across
his broad chest. He gripped my hips as I snaked my arms around his neck. When
we had first arrived at the party he had disappeared. I had assumed it was just
to get ready for the party but when he never returned I had quickly turned to
liquor to dull the sting of disappointment I’d felt.
I
looked up at him through my lashes as I rubbed my body along his to the beat of
the song. Riley’s hands were still gripping my hips as he rolled his large self
along with my rhythm. My liquor-induced bravery was taking control, and I had
to struggle to try and tame it. Riley’s hands pulled me gently until I was
completely flush against him and I felt him
straining against the zipper of his pants. I drew in a long heavy breath as he
moved his hands around my waist and splayed one of them across my ass while
resting the other on my back underneath my shirt. His skin was warm against
mine. I closed my eyes and took in the feel of his hand moving gently up and
down my spine as we continued to sway against one another, and I felt his
breath tickle the side of my neck.
“Your
dancing is as passionate as sin,” his words crawled slowly across my neck
causing the skin to rise with goose bumps. I shivered and leaned forward to
reply when I heard Jayde yelling for me to do a body shot from across the room.
“Come
on, Poppy!!!!!! Body shots!!!” her slurring voice called out before the next
song started up and Riley took a couple steps back.
I
watched his electric-blue eyes darken just a little as I called back to Jayde
and made my way through the crowd to the long bar that separated the kitchen
from the living room. I stumbled a little as I tried to maintain my balance in
the shoes I was wearing, but surprisingly I wasn’t falling all over the place
from the amount of alcohol I had consumed.
“Hop
on up on the bar, it’s your turn!” Jayde spun around and pointed her index
finger at my chest. She was so care-free and unbelievably funny when she was
sober, but when she was drinking those same attributes about her seemed to grow
even more. Jayde was a knockout! I envied her different colored eyes: one green
and one blue. It was hard not to look back and forth between them whenever I
spoke with her.
“Are
you crazy?” I placed my hands on my hips and laughed. “I’m almost as long as
the bar, Jayde, and all of those alcohol bottles at the end will be in jeopardy
if I jump up there,” I laughed again as I twirled my hand around in the air
when I felt big hands latch around my waist.
“Up
you go,” Riley’s baritone voice was at my ear, sending chills across my skin. I
gasped from the unexpected contact as my bottom was placed against the cool
wood of the bar.
“Keep
your legs bent and you won’t knock anything off,” Cash suggested as he grabbed
the bottle of tequila, the salt shaker, and a few lime slices. “Who’s up
first?!” He held them up in the air.
“Me!”
Jayde snatched the items from Cash’s hands. His eyes seemed to darken when she
said it. I wasn’t sure if it was due to the fact that she was going to be
taking a shot off of my body or the fact that he was head-over-heels in love
with her and wouldn’t admit it.
“Where
you taking it from?” I asked as I laid my body across the wood bar.
“Navel
I suppose. It’ll hold the tequila the best,” Jayde shrugged as she plucked the
top from the bottle. I grabbed the hem of my belly shirt and pulled it off.
Apparently they weren’t expecting that because Cash let out a cat call that had
me blushing and Jayde cracking up. Most girls would have been ready to scratch
my eyes out if their man whistled at me like Cash had, but not Jayde. It was
just another reason why I loved having her as a friend.
I
was wearing a black lace bra that had studs running across some of the lace on
the front of the cups. It was a pretty bra, one of my favs…and apparently a new
focal point for Riley’s eyes. When he realized I was watching him staring at
the rise and fall of my chest, a wicked grin spread across his face. Yes, I had
a good-sized chest. No, I wasn’t born that way. I was the girl that was overly
tall but lacking in the boob department. Did I go overboard and get gigantic
tits when I got implants? Nope. I went with a full C-cup and you couldn’t
really tell that they were implants at all unless I had on a massive push-up
bra or you felt them.
Jayde
poured the cool tequila into my navel and I felt my stomach contract from the
feel of it. I took a lime slice and placed it in my mouth as she trailed a line
of salt up my stomach and between my breasts. “Here goes nothing!” She called
out just before she dropped her mouth to my body, licking the salt from between
my breast to my navel before she sucked the tequila from my navel swiftly. Her
lips were on mine as she sucked the tart juice from the slice of lime resting
between my lips. Jayde pulled the lime from my mouth and I sat up enough to
brace myself with my elbows against the bar. We definitely had a crowd of
observers around us then.
I looked over at Riley and felt my heart pick up the pace from its normal steady
beat. His electric-blue eyes looked like tiny lightning bolts were going off
throughout them. I had never seen him look so
intense. It was like something inside of him was ignited and I was hoping I
would find out just what that something was.
“My turn!” Cash stepped up but was quickly pushed back by Riley.
“I don’t think so, lover boy.” Cash’s face fell. “She’s all mine.”
Those three words bounced around inside my head.
She’s all mine.
I knew he meant he was up next for the body shot, but the thought that it could
be something more was knocking loud and clear in my mind. I laid back against
the bar and felt the chill of tequila fill my navel again as I slid a new slice
of lime into my mouth. The grainy feel of the salt was back in the exact same
spot as before. I took a deep breath to try and steady my erratic breathing and
closed my eyes. There was no way I could watch Riley lick his way down my body,
suck tequila from my navel, and drop his lips to mine. The thought of it was
erotic enough, but watching him while he did it…that wasn’t anything I could
handle.
His warm breath tickled the skin across my collar bone just before I felt his
tongue make its way between my breasts, skipping the area where my bra came
around, and continued down to my navel. My body was screaming for more as he
sucked the tequila up into his mouth. The loss of his tongue and lips on my
skin was devastating, but it quickly subsided as our lips connected, causing an
unexpected moan to escape from the back of my throat. Riley squeezed the lime
juice from the slice between my lips and discarded it onto the counter before
bringing his mouth back to mine. The tart juice of the lime lingered between us
as his tongue danced around mine, adding a hint of salt into the mix. The kiss
seemed to go on forever, but forever wasn’t long enough when Jayde’s voice
broke the spell.
“Whoa there, Riley! Give the girl some room to breathe,” she drunkenly laughed and
Riley pulled his lips from me as fast as if I had burned him.
He didn’t say another word before he walked off into the crowd of people dancing
and grabbed hold of some brunette that I didn’t know. I quickly looked away as
I slid down from the bar and put my shirt back on, hoping that the heat of
embarrassment that I felt in my cheeks wasn’t obvious to everyone else.
“Where ya goin’?” Jayde asked as she filled a Solo cup and extended her arm to me.
“I need some air,” I fanned myself with my hand and took the Bourbon-filled cup from her. I
needed to cut myself off, but seeing Riley all over some girl not even five seconds
after his tongue was down my throat left a bad taste in my mouth.

At home in Texas, my husband and I share our life with children that mean the world to us and include a couple of fur babies. When we aren’t busy watching sports and betting on the game, we are entertaining with friends.
I do have a writing cave, but honestly, most of my work comes from the kitchen, the heartbeat of any home. Since noise doesn’t disturb me too much when writing, I can write and keep the pulse on the family at the same time. And… Possibly enjoy my favorite, sinful treat… Cookie dough!
The writer-reader world is my lifeline. I’m addicted and each time I get a message from a reader, I’m thrilled. There’s quite a few stories planned for the next several months. I’m hoping the readers fall in love with my next series, The Creek Series. A story that is guaranteed to bring out all the emotions.

Synopsis

My whole life, I wanted one thing: to be the perfect son.

Growing up, I did everything my father required. Straight A’s in school. Perfect manners. I forced myself to live up to his standards–standards that pushed the Chadwick family name to the highest rungs of society.
Over the years, we climbed so high that my father hoped we’d never fall.

If only he’d been right. With each successful year, the Chadwick family skeletons grew bolder and darker. Each member of my family had something to hide. Every lie threatened to undo us.
The secret Avery Jackson and I shared was the worst one of all.

She was the one person I shouldn’t love–the one person I couldn’t love. But I did. I loved Avery Jackson. I wanted her, even though a romance with her threatened everything.
It all felt so natural.

And that was exactly the problem.

Excerpt

“You look beautiful tonight,” I said.

“Thank you. I hoped you’d like this dress.”

We stopped walking just under the trellis, next to a corner of the
house. From here, we couldn’t see the rest of the party, but we
could hear everything. Hundreds of people stood just a few feet
away from us, and they’d come looking for us soon. We had
commitments and expectations to fulfill, but at that moment, my
eyes and my attention were on her.

Only her.

“Did you wear it just for me?” I said.

“Yes,” she said under her breath. “Just for you. I do everything
just for you –”

My mouth covered hers in a rough, intense kiss. I gripped her
face with one hand and the small of her back with the other,
crushing her to me in a split second of passion that didn’t have
any boundaries, a passion that broke every rule, and defied
everything that made sense in my life. My tongue twisted and
shoved against hers and she opened her body beneath me as
our kisses deepened. Before long, I forced us against the ivy wall
of the house, and there we were, locked together in a moment
that somehow we’d claimed as ours and ours alone.

I only broke the kiss when she moaned against my mouth.
Something about the sound made me remember where we were.
Who I was. What we were doing. How wrong it all was from the
standpoint of everything I had ever been taught.
No. We couldn’t do this. No. No. No.

Someone might see.

Above us, inside the house, a light in the study flipped on and I
heard two voices. Had they seen us already?

“I’m sorry,” I said as I forced our lips apart. I took an immediate
step away from her, but it did little to calm us both. Her breath
came out hard and fast, a series of quick pants, as if she hadn’t
wanted to breathe while we kissed.

And I don’t know what unsettled me more: the kissing or the look
of extreme pleasure she had on her face.

“I am . . . I’m . . . I should go.” I said.

Without another word, I turned and disappeared down the
pathway, leaving her alone against the ivy.

Being Nobody Blog Tour

Title: Being Nobody – Book 1 in The Witness Series
Author: H. D’Agostino
Genre: New Adult Romance/Suspense
Cover Design: K23Designs
Photography: K. Keeton Designs
Cover Model: Cameo Hopper
Release Date: November 3rd, 2014

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.


Review by Jennifer: H. D’Agostino does it again. Samantha Connelly has been so many people that she’s lost herself, but she’s tired of running. Her father saw something that he shouldn’t have and her family has been on the run every since. She’s been living, if that’s what you want to call it, in the witness protection program. She’s good at acting, but she wants to feel again. Her father is gone now and she’s decided this all has to come to an end. She’s going to do whatever it takes to put the last man behind bars so she can be Samantha again.

What she didn’t count on was Brian. He’s sweet, funny, and seems to really want to get to know her. At least the person she’s currently acting to be. Then she finds out that Brian is one of them and she plans on getting close to him to find out where the bad guy is. She shouldn’t get too close to him. She shouldn’t fall in love, but her heart won’t listen to her. Can she weed through all of the information and figure out what is truth and what is lies?
