In this third book in the sexy, suspenseful “The Secret Life of Amy Bensen” series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, we meet Amy’s brother Chad—and the woman who either loves him or wants him dead.

Six years ago, Chad’s hunt for a dangerous treasure turned deadly when his family home was set on fire, his parents killed. Faking his and his sister Amy’s death to protect her from further retaliation, he set her up in a new life with a friend’s help, letting her believe he’d died.

But now the men who hired Chad to find the treasure have found him, imprisoning and torturing him to learn where it’s hidden. A dark-haired beauty named Gia helps him escape, promising him access to his worst enemy. And as he tries to unravel the deep secrets of the past, he starts falling for her…only to discover she’s not what she seems.

Unable to trust anyone, Chad focuses on only two things: protecting his sister Amy and getting revenge. Is love even possible in the midst of heartache?

Excerpt #1
I stare at her. She stares back at me, and a battle of wills ensues, crackling with challenge that slowly shifts to something darker, hotter, and I reply with a low, rough tone. “Maybe I’ve changed my mind,” I murmur, and suddenly I’m staring at her lips, her full, kissable, tempting lips. A mix of adrenaline and lust rushes through me, barely contained. My mouth lowers, my need to lose myself in this moment, in this woman a fierce beast that does not want to be ignored.
“Don’t,” she whispers urgently.
“Don’t what?” I ask, lingering a breath away from touching her face, so close I can almost taste her.
“Kiss me again. Because I’ll kiss you back, and we’ll both hate me for it.”
She’s right. But I still want to kiss her.
“Please,” she whispers.
“Please kiss you? Please tie you up and fuck you like you’ve never been fucked? Please make you come so many times you’ll never forget who you fucked if you fuck me over?”
“Please don’t do any of those things.”
“Because you don’t want me to?”
“I already told you why. You’ll hate me later. And I’ll hate me for giving you the chance.”
“And what about me? Will you hate me?”
“I don’t have a reason to hate you, Chad. I don’t know you.”
“But you want me.”
“I don’t know the right answer to that.”
“The truth will set you free.”
“The truth can’t set you free if no one believes you.”

 My Forsaken Review . . .

Chad has been on the run forever.  The last thing he expected to do was fall in love. 

Chad may have made some bad decisions, but he's paying the consequences now.  The one thing he has left is his sister Amy.  He will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.  

Forsaken is the third book in this series and is necessary for this series to be read in order.  In Forsaken we can finally find out what happened and why Amy was on the run, when we officially meet Chad.  Chad's the key to everything for Amy to finally have her HEA.

After finally getting caught, he vows to trust no one.  As he's living the once burnt philosophy.   Gia thought she was doing work for the greater good, but a harsh dose of reality sets her running and turning to a man who doesn't want her help. 
"You think I'm a smartass?  Well, fuck me.  I was shooting for asshole, not smartass.  I'll try harder.  And I don't keep friends around to stab me in the back.  Or prisoners, for that matter."

Chad and Gia are thrown together and don't know how to trust one another but quickly find that they need each other.  

 "We are the sum of everything we've been and will be,"

As both are on the run, Chad is still trying to figure out who to trust but he can't stay away from Gia.   After finally finding Amy, he quickly learns that she comes as a package deal.  He desperately wants to take her and run but he also wants Amy to have happiness, since he stole it from her. 

With the help of Liam and Amy, Gia and Chad try to take matters back into their own hands and do what is right for everyone involved.  Even though they didn't plan on it, but with these two, two wrongs did make a right.
"I love you too. Asshole."

Do I adore Lisa Renee Jones?  Yes. Love her, as she has such a gift a heart, suspense and steam.  Do I like this series?  Very much.  I can't wait for Unbroken, where we hopefully get to see Amy and Liam's very deserving HEA.  Did this book keep me riveted?  Yes, as I couldn't wait to find all the missing pieces that Chad held dear and near.   Did I love Chad and Gia?  Yes, but Amy and Liam holder a bigger piece of my heart within this series.
