When I first started this duet, I had no idea the kind of journey that these books were going to take me on. I had no idea the kind of emotions that were going to be evoked in me, and I absolutely had no idea that these very same books were going to leave such a lasting impact whether it was good or bad.

The life You Stole picks up right where The Life that Mattered ended and I was so happy for that. That cliffhanger nearly did me in and I needed answers like you wouldn’t believe!! Two couples, four lives, one heartbreaking tragedy that had the power to ruin everything, had my eyes glued to this book for the foreseeable future.

Without going into any important details, I will say that I was not expecting the kind of outcome that I got with this story. The love and adoration that I had for most of the characters in book one, did dwindle a little bit and as much as I tried to put myself in to their situations, I couldn’t understand most of their decisions and their inability to see what was happening right in front of them. This left me not only with mixed emotions for the once lovable characters, but I also felt that certain things now became tainted.

With shocking twists, lifelong friendship that are being put to the test, unbreakable bonds and a love that will stand the test of time, The Life You Stole will put you on a suspenseful emotional crazy ride whether you love it or not.


Excerpt
I jumped, shutting my computer, and glanced up at Graham paused at the threshold to my room, loosening his red tie. He always looked handsome in a suit and that red tie I gave him for his birthday. I didn’t expect to see him. My assistant said he was at the Governor’s Mansion. I rarely stayed there, but he used it as an occasional “getaway.” Probably from me. So when she told me he was there, I made the assumption (actually hoped) he’d decided to stay the night and get some work done. “It’s not even seven.” I tucked my bare feet beneath me, still wearing my navy skirt suit and silk scarf—my long hair in loose curls down my back and around my shoulders just like Graham liked it. He took calculated steps toward me, completely untying his tie, letting it drop to the floor before working the buttons to his starchy white shirt. I tried to forget my internet search, not that it mattered because I couldn’t hide anything from my husband. He elicited a warring of emotions from me. An icy tingle slithered along my spine, making every muscle rigid, while the warmth in my heart fed on the way my pulse reacted to his proximity, the way it always had done. That never changed. It was how I knew we weren’t broken. “Did you miss me?” He smirked, shrugging off his shirt, revealing his defined torso—abs for days beneath a thin smattering of dark hair on his chest. I was the envy of so many women. Every day I reminded myself of that. “Nice scarf.” He knelt in front of the chair. I returned a nervous smile, hoping the man before me was the man I loved. Graham untied the scarf, sliding it from my neck as slowly as he’d slid off his tie just seconds earlier. The scarf floated to the floor. Gentle fingers swept my hair off my shoulders, exposing my neck. With the same feather’s touch, he traced the bruises. “It’s nothing …” His lips replaced his fingers, kissing my neck. “You’re fine. Right?” I wanted to believe him. Could denial become truth if we just believed hard enough? “I’m fine,” I murmured, closing my eyes. “Want me to show you how much I missed you?” he whispered next to my ear. Was he asking me for permission? Governor Graham demanded me. Pre-marriage, pre-Governor Graham asked … begged me to surrender to him.
