The truth doesn't have versions. Or does it?
Rin Lee covered her childhood in dirt and danced on its grave. Only she pranced a little too hard and spent her young-adult life tiptoeing the straight and narrow. Things finally paid off in the form of a job with the Department of Defense, a home of her own, and a boyfriend muscled enough he put Zach Efron to shame. Until one text reveals a hideous truth that splinters her world.
Suddenly she can’t trust Nate or their surrogate family of friends. Can she possibly trust Luck—the man who mirrors her soul, scares her beyond the neat confines she’s erected around herself, and makes her scrutinize the versions she’s always been too angry to see?
Luck turned to the streets out of necessity, while Rin slapped on blinders and ignored those willing to help her. A stupid move for a sultry young woman. But the skills she learned in the rough and tumble underbelly of DC will serve his latest assignment well. Because people like them have the instinct to survive.
|Versions is a shorter story than I normally expect from Mitcham, but that doesn't change that it is full of suspense, steam, and a deep plot.|
Rin hasn't had an easy time of things, and though we are not told of everything she's suffered, we get enough hints to know that life hasn't been kind to her and she's practically alone. She finally finds herself in a good place, a job she enjoys, a man she loves, and a life she's happy in, until it all starts unraveling. Suddenly Rin doesn't know what is going on, who to trust, or if the past she remembers is accurate.
Luck has been tasked with a mission, one that he's for the most part handle cautiously, but in a moment, that changes and not only does he expose himself, he can't help but offer the whole truth, the mission stopped being basic long ago.
Luck and Rin have to work together to figure it all out, and to do that, trust needs to be established. When the truth comes out, Rin is left emotionally blinded and stunned, but more than that, she's found something in Luck, she never expected. Luck knows Rin is the one for him, and he'll do whatever it takes to prove that. Between tons of secrets and lies and the lurking danger, these two find something more to cling to.
Versions is full of suspsense and drama that is only paralleled by hot and steamy scenes. The characters suck you in to their stories, both past and present and keep you hooked til the end, leaving you with just one question: What's coming next?
