Now at 26, Sam has moved to Chicago and is working at the Rusty Nail as a bartender calling herself Mallory. Her father passed away two years before leaving her to finish what he started…put away the ‘bad guys’. Living on the run in hiding has been harder than she ever imagined, and finding love has always been out of the question. Who would want to be with someone they couldn’t be honest with? She’s resigned herself to being alone, until… Brian walks in.
Brian Sellers is everything Sam has been trying to avoid her entire life. He’s clad in leather and torn jeans, donning several tattoos…all-in-all a bad boy. When their eyes connect one evening, everything she’s ever told herself falls to the wayside as an indescribable draw pulls her to him. He’s sexy and domineering, and something about him reminds her of a boy she used to know.
The more time she spends with Brian, the more she wants him, but…Brian is not everything he seems to be. When Sam happens to see the tat on his wrist, the same tat that her father saw all those years ago, she realizes she’s flirting with the enemy. Brian has no idea that he’s hanging out with the one girl his boss wants dead.
Can Sam hide her identity from the first man she’s had real feelings for? What will Brian do when he finds out who she really is? Can love really conquer all?
Being Nobody is the first book in The Witness series.
Review By Nicole
I have mixed feeling about this book, so many things about it that I loved and didn’t love.
In the beginning we find out that Sam has been placed into the witness protection program at a young age when her father witnessed a murder. She has never been in one home for long, once the people that are looking for her father have found him they would be moved once again. Now being 26 years old still on the run from the people wanting to kill her father. The only problem now is her father died a few years back, so now it’s only her and her mother still in hiding. She works in a bar near her apartment that she has alone without her mom. While working in the bar one day a young man that catches her interest comes into the bar. They seem to have that instant connection.The biggest problem is he works for the people that have been after her father her whole life. So now Sam has to figure out if she wants to try and have a relationship with someone that she finally has feelings for and risk being caught and have to leave again.
This story has so much potential, I feel like the author could have built up the story more than she did. The book is really short and seems to only get really interesting at the end. The relationship between Mallory aka Sam and Brian is almost unrealistic, its as if one moment they are flirting and the next they are madly in love. Also there was more sex in the book than an actual story line, maybe there should have been more of a plot.
I do love the story and what it could have been, hopefully the second book will be better. The last chapter I think should have been the plot twist and not the ending, hopefully i’ll get that in the second book.
