~this is a Spoiler FREE Review~
“Everyone covers up their ugliness with a mask. It's the secrets that lie beneath the surface that you have to worry about.”
Everyone has something to hide; setting their secrets free could take the weight of the world off their shoulders, but it could also destroy everyone in it's path.
When Carly Jo returned home to see her dad on his death bed, she never knew just how much her life would change. She now runs his coal company dealing with a saboteur, and she unearthed a trunk full of secrets hidden in his closet, she discovered a bastard brother they never knew existed and she's desperately trying to keep his secrets buried to protect her sister Savannah. As if carrying all this around with her isn't enough, she also came face to face with the man who destroyed her soul eight years ago and made it his mission to get her back. She tried to fight it, but Colton Weston has always owned her; when she walked away from him at the worst time possible and turned to her best friend Luke, she set into motion a chain of events that could destroy all three of them.
Savannah may seem like she has the perfect life, but it is a lie hidden behind the perfect mask she wears every single day; until one person breaks through, forcing her to confide in her sister. Carly Jo stands by her sister, and will do whatever she can for her, but will their combined strength be enough to survive the fallout when their secrets are revealed?
You ain't seen redneck crazy 'til you've seen Colton frickin' Weston completely unhinged.
This is gonna be a really short review. When Silla Webb named this series 'Buried Secrets' she nailed it on the head, there really is no other way to describe it; except maybe 'Holy Hott Mess - Shit Storm', but that doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. There is just so much deception, so much mystery, so much revealed and discovered; anything I say would kill the story and I just can't do that. It is important that you read Book #1 ~ Covered In Coal ~ first, because: 1- it lays the foundation for book two, gives you the background of all involved (well, most of them), unearths a portion of the explosive secrets these people are hiding, and it leaves us off with the biggest dilemma of our main characters. And 2- well, it was just that awesome! The second installment will drag you through a range of emotions; fear, frustration, anger, gutwrenching sadness, blissful happiness, and yes- lust! I was in tears more than once and gripping my kindle tight the entire time. And while she doesn't torture us with a scream inducing cliffhanger like she did last time ~ I STILL WANT MORE!! I LOVE that these characters were brought into my life, and I applaud Silla for such a smashing debut into our literary hearts. She has definitely landed herself solidly on my One-Click Addiction list with this series and I CANNOT WAIT to see what she brings us next.
“Ain't nothin' comin' between us again. Startin' now, we're puttin' it all behind us and movin' forward. Together, hand in hand. I'll be your strength when you're too weak to stand, and you will be the reason for my next breath.”
Silla Webb is a Kentucky native, raised in the heart of the Eastern Kentucky coal fields. A coal truck driver's daughter, and a railroader's wife, the coal fields own a special place in her heart.
Silla is a work at home, Super Momma to three rowdy boys, who keep her on her feet from daylight to sunset. As a pass time from her everyday life, Silla started a blog-Momma's Secret Book Obsession, for reviewing romance novels. From there, she realized that not only did she have a natural love for reading and reviewing, but she found that lost love of writing that she once had as a young girl.
When she isn't conquering the world as a wife, momma and Super Woman, Silla loves to lay on the front porch swing and read while sipping sweet tea, just passin' the day away.
