3.5 Stars I was drawn in by the synopsis of this book and it was quite an enjoyable read in the end. Faith Rochambeau has always had fond memories of the man who fathered her based on her mother's stories, but after her mother's death her journal reveals that they were just that: stories. The truth is very hard for Faith to take, that she was the result of a rape and in fact her biological father is now a respected and successful businessman who never paid for his crime against her mother. And a plot of vengeance is born. Faith's plan is simple: with her exceptional computer skills, she plans to dig into her father's life for information that can be used to damage him and the first step in this plan is to assume another identity and take a job with his company. She successfully puts her plan into action but is unaware that she is suspected of being a corporate spy and that the hottie who's paying her so much attention is actually her father's step-son and she's his assignment. This is a first time author to me and I think that she did an amazing job with the mystery and the suspense and the story moved along at a steady pace. Faith was a strong character, a little bit naive and idealistic but she was the only likable character in the whole book. Kent was a very weak character to me and even his supposed investigation into his stepfather's dealing was half-assed. However, the romance was missing something and maybe my dislike for Kent was a part of it. But the end is where it went sideways for me. It was very foolish for Faith to approach a man she knew was dangerous and ruthless to try to goad him into a confession, especially because he hadn't achieved his success by being a choirboy. Not just that, she was not adequately prepared to defend herself and got away safely only by sheer luck. Those issues aside, the writing was well-done and I won't mind reading more of her work.

I wasnt sure what to make of this book, I love a good dark novel but this seemed to hit on a lot of trigger subjects. It was well written, with good characters. *Copy provided honest review*
I have to admit that I was not sure where this book would take us as readers, but was anxious to read it. Once I got started, I did not want to put it down. Kathleen Mix threw you right into Faith's life and took you on a ride with her to get revenge for what her biological father had done to her mother. We quickly learn that Faith's mom was rapped and that is how she was conceived. When she reads her mother's journal after she passes away, Faith makes it her goal to get Victor, her biological father, to confess to what he did to her mom all those years ago. Faith's mom had let her believe that her father had died a heroic death as a fireman. This was a pretty fast paced story that kept you wondering what was going to be next for Faith and what she was going to get herself into next. There were parts of the story that were comical to me as well with Faith trying to be her own detective when the PI that she hires doesn't end up doing much for her. Faith takes on her cousin, Josie's identity and moves to where her father is located. She gets a job in his company so that she can work her way into seeing him and hopefully getting her confession to make him pay all these years later. I love that Kathleen mixed some romance in with this story as well. Everything was so well balanced and it made for a great read on this one. I was pleasantly surprised with this one, even though I really did not know what to expect. There were plenty of twists and turns that I did not expect at all. I don't want to give the story away by telling everything that happened because you really need to read this one for yourself. You will be hooked from the beginning!!! Thanks Kathleen for a great read!
