Behind Me by Piper Reagan
Reviewed by Jackie
If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. What an amazing first full length novel from new author Piper Reagan. I thought her first book Fast Forward was good, but if she keeps going at this pace, she is going to have a incredible career as an author.
Josephine (Joss) has lost her way in life. From that fateful day ten years ago to now, she has kept herself isolated, only having a few friends. On a night out with the girls, she lands in the arms of a handsome stranger, Cain. A night of incredible chemistry and mind blowing sex has Joss sneaking out the next morning to keep her secret hidden. But Cain is not one to give up. He is going to make this girl his, no matter what she is hiding.
I couldn’t put this book down. It takes you on a journey of every emotion you could imagine. Joss and Cain are written with such incredible chemistry it will have you cheering for them. I didn’t want their story to end. Be prepared to sit and take all of this book in one sitting. If things like sleep and work didn’t get in my way, I would have holed up for hours. Piper Reagan, thank you for such an extraordinary story. You have a fan for life. I can’t wait to see where your stories take me next.
don’t even know who I am anymore.
Josephine… My birth name. The one my parents gave me and the one they can have. It makes me no difference.
Joss… That’s what my friends call me. I like it. It means they know me. Sort of.
Blue J… My stage name. It hides me when I need it to.
Bird… That’s what he calls me. And he’s the only one.
He gave me a new name. One that was branded on my skin our first night together, placed there by his lips. The night that was supposed to be our first and our last. Because if he sees the me hiding behind the fake name, will he even want me?
She slipped out, right through my fingers. But that won’t work for me. Her voice made an impression, her touch left its mark. And when I find her, I’ll make sure she remembers the way it felt.
But how can a girl who hides herself, living her life in a convent and afraid to face the world, ever fall for a man who kills people for a living? Can the death row prison guard and the girl struggling to break free come together? Or will their differences keep them from finding their forever?
Behind Me is a contemporary romance with adult language and sexual content and is intended for an audience 18 and over.
