The day her mother passed away, Beulah was only given a name. That was it. No other explanation.
Portia Van Allan was not someone Beulah could believe her mother ever knew. Wealthy, self-absorbed and other than the fact Portia was supplying special care for Beulah’s sister, Portia was cruel.
The day Portia’s son returns home for the summer, Beulah discovers that Portia isn’t in charge. This isn’t her home at all. Her late husband left her with nothing. It all belongs to their son who doesn’t seem to like his mother at all.
Jasper Van Allan doesn’t know why his mother has hired a young gorgeous blonde to take care of the house and almost lets her go before he finds out the truth.
Realizing there’s more to Beulah than a stunning face, he keeps finding reasons to be near her all the time. It’s all falling into place, it all begins to make sense . . . until the real lies, the dark secrets, and the skeletons come tumbling out of the Van Allan closet. Twisted truths that will send Beulah running . . .
I saw Abbi Glines was coming out with a new series and I knew I wanted to read it. Unfortunately, it was a series she made only for iBooks. It kind of bothered me that it wouldn’t be on my Kindle with all of my other books but I ordered it anyway.
It was giving me Fallen Too Far vibes, rich guy falls for poor girl.
I did like the main character Beulah. She did what she had to for her family. She was selfless and throughout everything, she kept a good attitude.
The relationship between Beulah and Jasper felt rushed to me towards the middle. I get that she liked him and was falling for him. However, we didn’t Jasper’s POV until further in the book so I wasn’t sure what his feelings for her were. I thought they were cute together overall.
Another thing is that I wanted more of a backstory on Stone and to see if he was ever going to come around at all. This book ends on a small cliffhanger (surprise, surprise) but I’m excited to read the next installment.
