He was passion and the reason I breathed. I loved him, trusted him when life taught me to trust no one. He was nothing I thought he was. He wasn’t even the man he said he was. He was dangerous. Everyone told me to hide, to run, but now he’s back. He came for me and I’m not running at all. Because he’s still the man that gave me a reason to breathe and if that’s dangerous, that’s a risk I will have to take.
Ashley's story - you met her in Dirty Rich Cinderella Story, and now she's ready to tell her story. You do not need to read any book prior to this one.
Dirty Rich Secrets: Part One is the first part of Ashley and Aaron’s (Noah) story. There will be two other parts of their story. If you read Dirty Rich Cinderella Story, then you would’ve been introduced to Ashley. This book is all about her and the man she fell in love with and now is in Witness Protection due to him. Unfortunately, he finds her in Texas and ends up taking her to Colorado. He’s told her that he’s a CIA agent and he’s trying to protect her. Ashley though, doesn’t know if she can believe him. They were supposed to get married, but everything fell apart when the truth came out.
This short novella is full of mystery and some romance between the two characters. It left me on the edge of my seat, once Ashley was in Colorado with Aaron (Noah). Be prepared though that this novella has a cliffhanger at the end, but don’t worry, you won’t have to wait long for the next two parts. Lisa Renee Jones will be releasing the other novellas in August and September.
Readers will get to hear Aaron’s (Noah) confession to Ashley on what he was doing when he met Ashley. I look forward to reading the next novellas and finding out what happened at the end of Part One. That cliffhanger at the ending left me in shock. If you are a fan of second chance romances, then this book is for you. You don’t have to read Dirty Rich Cinderella Story before reading this novella. I do recommend reading the whole Dirty Rich series though if you haven’t read those yet. I love that series and highly recommend those books and other books written by Lisa Renee Jones.
