ALL DEBTS MUST BE PAID
Seven years ago, I thought I could save Beth, the girl I loved from the monster who was supposed to take care of us. I thought I could keep Beth and all the other kids at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles safe.
I failed. Badly. Now we all have blood on our hands and owe a dangerous man a very dangerous debt. We don’t know when he’ll come calling for payment, but when he does – we pay, or we suffer.
When my turn comes, I’m ready for anything.
Except seeing Beth again.
LOVE IS NEVER FREE
No one ever tells you that the cost of having your dreams come true is literally every single other part of your life. Yes, I’m a huge pop star these days, but I’m pretty much a mess, too.
I’ve spent my life hiding behind disguises, make-up and costumes, all to protect myself from the kind of pain that comes from revealing your true self to someone.
I did that once. With Tommy. The only person I ever loved. It didn’t turn out so well.
And now, with everything else falling apart around me, I’m suddenly in the backseat of his car.
And the past we’ve both tried to run from is catching up with us.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I love Molly O’Keefe so, I was thrilled when I saw she was writing another series.
This is quite different from her previous work and probably one of my favorite books of hers.
We meet Tommy and Beth. They are teenagers living in a foster home with three other teens, trying to survive under the cruel roof of the Pastor. Their lives in that house are hell and one night everything comes crushing down.
They will survive. Some will loose each other and some others will come closer…but at what cost?
Now Tommy owes a debt and the time has come to repay it.
But what happens when his past collides with his present? In order to be free of the debt, he now has a mission to accomplish. A mission that is so far removed from his work as a stone mason.
Will he make it or will be forever hunted?
As always, the author creates great settings and characters that draw you in. I was captivated by this dark/gray tale of survival, friendship and passion.
Chemistry sizzles, danger lurks and the author certainly has me salivating for the next book.
I totally recommend this book. One of my favorite summer reads so far!
THE GIRL I LOVED IS THE WOMAN I CAN’T HAVE
It was simple: Pay the debt and I stay out of jail. Pay the debt and I stay alive.
But I sacrificed it all for Beth.
I didn’t pay what I owed. I’m sure punishment is coming, but I can take it – as long as Beth is safe. Away from her mother and everyone else who would hurt her.
I gave it all up for two days with her. And it was worth it.
She always was.
THE SECRETS WE KEEP ARE WHAT TEARS US APART
We’re supposed to be done. Over. Tommy goes his way, I go mine. Cue the heartbreaking music.
I’m supposed to forget him, but I don’t think I can. And when the danger closes in on Tommy, we’re on the run again. From Bates. From my mother. From our past. And there are no safe places to hide.
Except one. And it’s the place that will hurt Tommy the most.
But maybe it’s time for me to face my past. My demons.
Maybe it’s time for me to save Tommy for once.
