What happens when you uncover years of secrets and find out everything you thought to be true was a lie?
Drew Stevens finds her world turned upside down when her parents are brutally murdered. Soon after, she learns she inherited a property in Bar Harbor, Maine, from recently deceased grandparents that she believed had died when she was a baby.
Drew travels north to settle her grandparents’ estate, but finds more questions than answers as the truth starts unraveling. What she didn’t expect to find was Saint, whose reputation was as tumultuous as his past. But the very thing that brought them together was the same thing that kept them emotionally caged.
With Saint’s scars so deep and Drew’s so fresh, can the pair heal from their painful wounds or will they be pulled beneath the darkness of their pasts?
I received this book for free from publisher/pr firm in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I love discovering a new author and when I saw this tour I quickly jumped on board. Marni Mann is the author of several books which I will have to look into.
Pulled Beneath is the first book in the Bar Harbor series.
I have to start of by saying I was pulled in to the storyline from the first page. It was non stop and I don’t think I put the book down unless it was necessary. I managed to read this pretty much in one sitting. Its been awhile since I have done that. I have to say there are so many twists and turns in the book that you never know what is around the bend. These are the kinds of books I really enjoy reading.
The book begins with Drew crawling out of the bed of her friend, David. They have a no strings attached relationship. She is young and wants to pursue her career of photography. She has been through to much and likes the way things are right now.
On her way home Drew spots flashing lights and it only hits her when she gets closer to her house that its there. She quickly finds out that both her parents have been brutally murdered. Drew blames herself for not being home to protect her parents. She feels as though if she had been there this wouldn’t have happened. She chose being with David over her parents.
Still grieving the lose of her parents she receives a letter from a lawyer in Maine. The letter basically tells her that she has just inherited her grandparents house. Drew is confused because she was always told her grandparents died before she was born. She had no idea that they were alive basically up till her parents death.
Hoping to get some answers she decides to drive from her home in Florida to Maine to find out all she can about why her parents lied to her and why her grandparents never reached out to her before. I know I was a little confused and wanted to know what had happened.
Arriving in Maine she meets with the lawyer who basically says sorry can’t help you. So Drew goes to the house that is now hers. She quickly meets Saint. He is her next door neighbor. You know something will come of this. Drew discovers that there is more to Saint and she wants no part of this. She just wants to find out what she can and sell the house and move on with her life.
Will Drew be able to resist Saint and get out of town asap or is there more to him then meets the eye that Drew just can’t resist?
Will Drew be able to uncover all the secrets and lies she has been told?
I am excited to see where this story will go and hopefully it will happen in the next book.
