What happens when everything you thought you knew suddenly changes with a few simple words?
When Samantha Connelly fell hard for the one person that could rip her world apart she wasn’t prepared for the bomb he would later drop on her. With a few words, Brian completely turned her world upside down and sent her into an emotional spiral.
Forced to leave town once again, she begged him to come with her…pleaded with him to choose her…to love her, but Brian had his own agenda that he couldn’t deviate from.
What happens when two people who are meant for each other are forced apart with no reunion in sight? How do you recover from the reality that you may never see one another again? How do you go back to being a nobody when all you want in life is to be somebody to someone?
** This is book two of The Witness Series and should be read after book one**
I hope you are reading this review after having read book one, because I don’t want to give away any spoilers for book one…
I love this series. It is suspenseful, dramatic, and hot, everything I love in a great book and series. Sam, (aka Mallory, Emily, Jennifer) has been relocated again… and this time, it’s after she finally found something worth fighting for…. Brian.
Sam is a strong, independent character, for everything that is thrown her direction she takes it in stride. The one person she counts on is herself (that’s my opinion of her). If I had to live the life she had to, I don’t think I would have become half the woman she was in this story. Her life is dramatic and suspenseful and it had me on the edge of my seat and cheering her on.
Book two picks up 4 years after her and Dev were separated and he never came to find her, so Sam does what she does best, she starts over. But when she gets the news that everything is over and she can be herself again, she sets out on an “adventure” to find him with her own secrets to “air out”.
Dev (aka Brian) is the one, the one to change Sam’s life around, but when things fall apart he has to leave Sam, and I about damn near cried. Dev is everything a woman could want in a man, dominate, loving, and devoted, but there is a problem, he also lives his life full of secrets.
There are some major twists and turns in this book that will have you asking yourself if love can really conquer all. So, if you have read book one and are ready for more, Becoming Somebody was a great continuation of Sam’s story!
*** Warning…. It has a little bit of a cliff hanger (but that’s what keeps us wanting more ;) )
