I breathe in.
I breathe out.
I eat, sleep and breathe.
I'm a survivor.
I'll do whatever it takes to keep my life moving forward.
I shouldn't want to. I should want to be buried in the ground somewhere. I'm stronger than that, better than that. Right?
My name is Becca Carpenter and no one really knows who I am. Becca Carpenter isn't even my real name.
I slink in and out of the shadows because it's the only way I know I'll survive.
They're after me. One day, they'll find me.
Life takes a turn for the better, but I never expected to find a calm happiness in Phoenix, Arizona. But like everything else, I've destroyed that bliss, and my best friend. It's what I do, how I survive.
Falling in love with a man in the spotlight is definitely not in the cards of my life’s story.
But Bryan Hayes, country music's biggest superstar, has other ideas about my past. The only problem is he can't see I'm not the person I pretend to be. He wants me, but will the secrets of my past destroy him?
God knows, it's killing me.

Bryan is a country music star. He's in the inner circle of friends via Ireland, when he meets Becca he wants to protect her, he also wants her in his bed.
Their first meeting she goes by Sorcha, a stripper who dances for him.
Their second meeting is a bit more relaxed with more clothing at a private concert. Before she can run out feeling out of her element he stops her and keeps her at his side through the night.
After a night together she runs, of course he doesn't really help as he treats her just like all the others in the end.
But she knows she screwed up an wants to apologize. Only that takes a little longer than she thought it would.
Eventually they get their heads on straight an try to make a go of it. But now Becca/Livia/Sorcha's past has caught up to her. She, Bryan and Liam work to rid her of her problems but unearthing the past that took her father from her and sent her straight into hell.
I love Zoey Derrick and while this was quite a bit different from her other books I've read I enjoyed it. I wasn't a huge fan of Bryan initially, he took a bit for me to warm up to but in the end I loved him. Another great read by this author.
