Description

She thinks she’s fooled me. But I’ve known all along.
Almost.
Lily is hiding something, a secret so big, she came out of a year-long coma and her first instinct was to lie.
Who does that? Someone who is afraid. No—not afraid.
Terrified. And it’s my job to take that fear away.
My partner and I have spent countless man-hours hunting down the cold-blooded killer who did this to her. Meanwhile, Lily’s spent her waking hours recovering. Getting stronger. Getting smarter.
Staying beautiful.
Never get involved emotionally. That’s my dictate. Never get attached.
When you realize you’re caught in a triangle, it turns out there is no exit.
Crossing a line is easy. Holding a line takes strength.
Lily’s shooter knows that she’s my weakness.
And he’s about to exploit that by breaking a line and escaping, claiming a hostage in the process.
One I have to get back.
No matter what it takes.

    Meli Raine writes amazing trilogies. I am not sure if waiting after book one or book two for the next novel in the series. They all leave the reader gasping and hoping for more. Even when the trilogies are finished, readers are waiting for the next series. Rarely will you find sets like this or authors who provide them continuously without them getting repetitious or losing their effect. Lily has now opened up to Silas in so many ways and unwittingly this has put Silas at risk for his life, as well as hers. The deep state seems to have deeper secrets than anyone was aware of. It has also gotten their tentacles into some of the highest aspects of government. So who can any of them trust? Who is running the game? The president, someone higher? Are they aware of what is happening and the risk one of their own is in as is in the woman he has been instructed to protect? Too many questions that hopefully book three will help us, as readers, to answer. Another amazing read by an author that had mastered writing psychological thrillers as so few have. Rating: 5.0 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this novel. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Meli you have done it again. I like how we get to to know Duff more. All these men that work with Drew have a complicated history but fall hard for these women they are to protect. Duff wants Lily to trust him and tell him the truth. He finally confronts Lily and asks when is she going to tell him the truth. Lily doesn’t know if Duff is just trying to get closer to her to get information. She doesn’t know who she can trust.Somebody is still after her. She still acts like her memory has not returned. Romeo is still after her. He has gotten close to Lily’s parents to get information. Lily is falling for Duff. He has a past she wants to uncover. Again someone came after her and Jane. Duff and Lily let their guards down. Lily just insist to go for a climb when her and Duff where almost killed. Duff saves Lily and she saves him. Duff didn’t want her to see this side of him but it was either them or Duff and Lily. I was hoping Lily and Duff finally get together. Meli you leave us wanting more. This books has suspense, action and cliffhangers. Love this series. I love reading your books!

  • Duff’s POV

    ANOTHER awesome one!!! This one is from Duff’s angle and you get to see things from his POV! Not only does it give a whole new spin on things, there are now more questions and more things to consider in the whole quest to find Lily’s shooter. It’s also shows the struggle he has with his feelings that are developing for Lily. It’s a struggle, as it was with the other couples, to figure out how to be both professional and think about their feelings as well! Can’t WAIT to read the final of the series and see things from all points of view!!!
  • Great Follow-Up

    This is the second book in the series and we’re filling in more pieces of the puzzle as Lily tries to stay alive and Duff works to keep her alive. Love is blooming between them despite the stress around them, or partially because of it. Extremely excited for the 3rd book to launch in January. I was provided this book as an ARC for my honest review.
  • Exciting!!

    I had previously read the Shameless and Harmless series and loved them. They are intriguing, drought with danger, deception, the chance for romance... so much emotion to the characters. So, when I heard that the next series building on those other two was coming out I couldn’t wait to read. False Memory starts where the Shameless series leaves off with Lily faking amnesia to protect herself while recovering from a traumatic brain injury. She knows who tried to kill her but doesn’t know who to trust. False Memory ends with a cliffhanger, and False Hope picks up right where False Memory leaves off. As with the others, this will be a series to read in order. And if you haven’t already done so, I’d recommend reading the other two series first to get the most out of this one. In some ways this book is more intense than False Memory. The truth about who tried to kill her is beginning to be uncovered, putting Lily and Jane at risk once again. There is danger always lurking from the person who tried to kill her before, but now she’s getting more support from those around her who are putting the pieces together. There’s still the question of who to trust, and Duff’s trust in the wrong people almost costs them their lives. There is so much emotion to this story and I really enjoy the way Meli Raine develops the characters and the story line. Once I started reading I didn’t want to put the book down. This one also ends with a cliffhanger (expected) so be prepared. Can’t wait to find out what happens next. Will Duff and Lily get their chance at HEA???

    I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I really enjoyed this book which is book two of a three book series. This is a continuation of Lily and Duff’s story. This book picks up where False Memory ends. The relationship between Lily and Duff progresses. The plot has a lot of twists and turns in this book. You don’t know who the good guys are and who is the enemy. This book has a little bit of steam between Lily and Duff. This book ends with a big cliff hanger which leaves you wanting more. I can’t wait until the final book of the series!
  • I need the last book, PERIOD!
