My life was easy, simple, fun.
Until I got wrapped up with the wrong people.
Nothing but a piece of property to pay for the sins of my father.
I’m to be married off to a handsome monster.
I see his truths every day, and it’s hard not to fall for the enemy.
He won’t let me escape, but I’m not sure I want to.
I wanted to marry for love, but it looks like love is a lie.

K Webster and Nikki Ash need to make this writing together thing a regular affair! Earlier this year, I read Heath, a Wuthering Heights retelling by the duo, and not only did their writing styles blend together beautifully, but the story itself was absolutely captivating! This dark mafia romance was no different! If I didn't know this was written by two different people, I would've never guessed it, and I devoured the entire book in one sitting!
Talia Nikolaides is about to join her boyfriend for a summer in America when she is summoned by her father, Niles, out of the blue. Reluctantly, she agrees to travel by jet with her brother to Greece as requested. Soon after she lands, she discovers Niles has promised her hand in marriage to Kostas Demetriou, heir to an organized criminal organization to whom he owes a large some of money. The marriage will clear his debt, but if Talia refuses, he won't live to see another day.

Understandably, Talia doesn't want to participate in this insanity. How can her father claim to love her if he would allow her to be sold to such a man for his own crimes? Unfortunately, the Demetriou family doesn't take no for an answer, and after watching her future husband beat a man to death, she fears for her life more than anything.

Kostas may be a scary son of a bitch, but when he looks at Talia, the last thing he wants to do is harm her. Instead of purely pissing him off, her sass makes his dick hard. He loves her body and wants nothing more than to put a ring on her finger, so he can start worshipping it. That is if people stop trying to murder the newly engaged couple long enough for them to walk down the aisle.

Hidden Truths is violent, gritty, and perfectly paced! It's so well written that once I started reading, I couldn't stop. There was never a dull moment from start to finish. The authors had me engaged and invested from page one, and I'm dying for the next installment as we speak.

Kostas and Talia together are hot as fuck! You can feel the tension between them immediately, and when they finally get together, it's absolute perfection. Kostas is all alpha, and I loved him from the very beginning. He swept me off my feet right along with Talia! I couldn't help but feel for her when she got thrown into an arranged marriage against her will by her own father nonetheless, but by the end of the book, I mostly envied her! Kostas is ruthless when it comes to pretty much anything or anyone, but he showers Talia with love, affection, and anything her heart desires.

There is a cliffhanger at the end of the book, but it's not a big one. I think I know what actually happened, so I don't feel frantic about the ending. (Of course, I could be wrong.) However, I still can't wait to get my hands on Stolen Lies! I need more of Kostas and Talia now! Not to mention, I can't wait to see certain assholes pay for their crimes against them. I was going to say I hope Kostas makes them suffer, but if I learned anything at all from this book, that's a given! The way he doles out his own brand of justice is not for the faint of heart, and I can't fucking wait to witness more of it!

If you love mafia romance and the arranged marriage trope, this one's for you! 


“Hate and love are shared passions. They pull you in and take over your body, your heart, your mind...”

Hidden Truths is EVERYTHING that I love in arranged marriage/mafia, dark and twisted romance! Fast paced, intriguing characters especially the hero and heroine, beautifully written, tragic and heartbreaking, dark and suspenseful, and full of love/hate! 

Kostas is one of those heroes that I didn’t expecting loving. He’s brutal, ruthless, arrogant, so sure of himself, a bully, and the bad boy. But fuck, did I fall in love with him without a doubt! There’s something about him that just kept me so intrigued (most likely his dirty and filthy mouth!) He’s intense and powerful, alpha with the right ‘don’t mess with me’ attitude, and has the right amount of softness/tenderness that I enjoyed seeing! 

Talia is stubborn, sassy, strong-willed, smart, and will stop at nothing to break free from this arranged marriage with Kostas... or does she? She’s not your typical heroine, especially in match with this certain hero, but she definitely is one who picks and chooses her battles... wisely. I felt for her so much! 

The beginning for these two may not have been what they wanted, but something between them clicked and worked! It’s what I enjoyed most besides the steaming hot chemistry brewing between them! Arranged or not, before all of that when they first met unexpectedly, I just knew 😉🔥

The twists, the turns, and the OMFG moments are what kept me turning the pages!! I was craving to know what would happen next, and my gosh, I JUST COULDN’T GET ENOUGH. Of freaking course, alongside wanting and needing and dying to know more about Kostas and Talia because I ALWAYS NEED MORE!! 

I’m super familiar with K Webster and her work (individually), but not so much Nikki Ash. And now I’m wondering WHAT IN THE EVER LIVING FUCK AM I DOING? But I will say this because I know it for sure... There’s just something so special when this duo, K Webster and Nikki Ash, write together! They are a perfect team, pure MAGIC!! The writing is always beautiful and flawless, the plot is well thought out and told, and you can’t even tell that TWO people wrote this book! It’s seamless and that’s how you know these two authors just click and work so well together! I knew I’d enjoy and FALL IN COMPLETE LOVE with this book when I saw the blurb, and now I’m impatiently awaiting book two... BECAUSE OMFG! That KOSTAS HAS. ME. IN. NEED.

I need more, as I always do because this is exactly what these two do to me when they write together!
