The only thing that stands in the way of my revenge is her.
The lying scheming daughter of the man who killed my parents. She has the secrets I need to bring down her father.
And I’ll do anything to get them. I will lie to her. Steal from her. Use her.
It helps that our chemistry is explosive.
What I’m not expecting is for her to be so sweet. And so strong.
After so many years of lying and hiding, I finally have a place to call home. With people I can call a family. The Paintbrush Inn is my life now, and I won’t let anyone ruin it.
When sexy and world-weary Simon checks in to the Inn, I never expect him to glance my way. I’ve spent my whole life blending into the background. Being overlooked and ignored. It’s been helpful, even though it’s lonely. And he’s way out of my league.
But our attraction is powerful. Undeniable.
Because I can’t let anyone close. If the secrets I keep were to be revealed, my whole life would be destroyed. But something about Simon makes me break all my own rules. I’m letting him in to my home, my body, my life, never expecting he has his own secrets.
His own lies.
When the truth comes out, we’ll both be ruined.
Review by Candy:
Lives RUINED based on the almighty dollar. Dale Simpson develops medication that is beyond reach of those who need it. For instance Simon lost both his parents do to this man, his mom had a brain tumor and Simpson had a cure but the family couldn’t afford it. Simon’s mom dies and his dad can’t do on anymore and commits suicide leaving Simon alone. Simon ends up in foster care and it’s the worst kind. Tina (Penny) is Dale’s unknown daughter and has the power to bring him down but doesn’t for a reason. Simon in order to pay a debt must find out if Penny is really Tina and find the secrets that can bring Dale down once and for all.
This story is about revenge and the lengths one will do to get it, but the lies become too much for Simon and Penny. Will they reveal to each other the truth? Or will it be too late for them to start fresh after the lies?
Simon is a strong man having to endure his loss and grow into the man he is but doesn’t like. Tina (Penny) is someone seeking what she couldn’t get from her parents as a child affection so she becomes someone else entirely with the secrets her mom holds over her father.
Molly your characters are lovable by any means and deserve the justice needed. You gave them strength and they endure from the tragedies in the end together. I love the different P.O.V. from the characters because it gives you glimpse into what the other is thinking and feeling. Molly you keep the reader interested and on the edge a bit to find out more. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. 4 Stars

Lost Without You (The Debt, #1)
Molly O’Keefe has always known she wanted to be a writer (except when she wanted to be a florist or a chef and the brief period of time when she considered being a cowgirl). And once she got her hands on some romances, she knew exactly what she wanted to write.
She published her first Harlequin romance at age 25 and hasn’t looked back. She loves exploring every character’s road towards happily ever after.
Originally from a small town outside of Chicago, she went to university in St. Louis where she met and fell in love with the editor of her school newspaper. They followed each other around the world for several years and finally got married and settled down in Toronto, Ontario. They welcomed their son into their family in 2006, and their daughter in 2008. When she’s not at the park or cleaning up the toy room, Molly is working hard on her next novel, trying to exercise, stalking Tina Fey on the internet and dreaming of the day she can finish a cup of coffee without interruption.
