From USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes the final sexy standalone set in the Beneath world of New Orleans.

I used to believe there were lines in life you don't cross.

Don't lie. Don't cheat. Don't steal.

Until I learned people don't always practice what they preach.

I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything.

Then I got the call no one wants, and I’m back in New Orleans.

What I don't expect is for her to be here too.

Another line you don’t cross?

Don't touch your best friend’s little sister.

She's always been off-limits.

Too bad I don't follow the rules anymore.

Wham. My heart slammed against my ribs as it sped up about twenty beats per minute.

The heat and delicious woodsy citrus scent radiating from his body did good things to me. Things that made me want to do very bad things to him. I wasn’t a seventeen-year-old virgin anymore. I knew my way around a man, but I had to admit, the hipsters in Cali had nothing on a homegrown Louisiana man like Rhett.

When he spoke, he leaned in so close that I could feel his breath on my ear. “You missed that shot on purpose.”

My gaze jumped from the sexy five o’clock shadow shading his jaw to his piercing green eyes.

“Wha-what are you talking about?” I smacked myself mentally when my old stammer kicked in. Of course he would cause it.

“That shot. You missed on purpose. I saw you adjust at the last minute. Why?”

I swallowed the saliva pooling in my mouth and decided to take the safest exit from this situation. Lying.

“Cue slipped.”

His eyes narrowed on me. “You’re lying and you’re terrible at it, just like you’ve always been.” He reached up and pressed his thumb to my left eyebrow. “You get a twitch right here.”

Oh my God. Rhett Hennessy is touching me. And what’s more . . . he knows my tell. He noticed me!

The fifteen-year-old inside me did a terrible cartwheel at the realization. Okay, more of a round-off. With a tumble in the grass to finish. Whatever.

But outwardly, I was trapped in that green gaze until he decided to let me go—or until I came to my senses.

I cleared my throat and sidestepped him. “Whatever you say, hotshot. I need another drink.”

Focusing on putting one four-inch heel in front of the other without biting it, I escaped to the table and reached for the whiskey glass I’d left behind, interrupting my brother and the waitress. They both stared at me as I chugged the contents.

I’d always wondered what it would feel like to have Rhett’s attention, and now I knew. In a word, it was . . . unnerving.

“How’s the game going?” my brother asked.

“Fine.” Keeping my answer short meant he couldn’t tell that I was lying. Heath wasn’t nearly as observant as Rhett.

“You winning?”

Thanking the Lord that Heath obviously hadn’t been watching, I shrugged. “I guess.”

He glanced toward Rhett and then back to me. “The sister I know and love doesn’t lose at pool. Ever. Even to Rhett Hennessy.”

I lowered the glass to the table and straightened my shoulders. “Like they say, things change.”

He nodded slowly. “That may be true about most things, Flounder. But you’re a pool shark and we both know it.”

Before I could respond, Heath’s attention jumped back to the waitress. I took another ten seconds to gather myself, also known as drinking offensively in my mind, before I crossed the floor to face off against my former obsession.

“You all right, Red?” Rhett asked.

“Don’t call me that. And I’ve never been better.”

His gaze dipped to my feet and dragged up my body. “I can agree with that statement.”

Whoa. Who is this guy with the innuendo? A glance at his empty whiskey glass told me he was drinking heavily as well. Was this the booze talking? Or was Rhett Hennessy not just noticing me, but noticing me?

Either way, I had to play it cool. Or at least pretend to play it cool, since it seemed I might fall short.

“Your turn, hotshot. Better not miss, because I’ll clear the table next time,” I said, but my cocky attitude backfired.

Rhett didn’t miss. He sank his balls and then the eight, ending the game almost as quickly as it started. He returned his cue to the rack and turned to face me, all traces of the earlier heat banked, his expression shuttered.

“Game over.”

What the hell just happened?

My Review:
Meghan March is one of my #1click addictions and Beneath The Truth is just another confirmation that I did the right decision on that. But this story is so much more than that. It is a story of betrayal, survival, danger, strength and love. It is a beautiful story of fighting for the people that own your heart even when the cost might be your own life. It is a story about surviving the betrayal of the people closest to you and trying to find your way out of the ruins they left behind them. It is a story about a blossoming love so strong that can overcome all odds and withstand the vicious attacks against it.

I fell in love with Rhett and Ariel from the very start of this incredible book. Rhett is the typical alpha male. He is dominant, brooding and super sexy. His past is a big part of him and the mistakes done by people close to him scarred him in a way that very few people can heal. And even though his belief in justice, right and wrong was nearly obliterated he is still ready to fight for the few people that hold his heart. But one of the things I really loved about him was that when he gives his heart, he gives it fully. And he is ready to fight some of the biggest monsters out there to keep that person safe.

But I think my favorite character in this book was Ariel. She is super smart and in a big way a nerd. But she is also beautiful, strong and independent and will do anything she can to keep the people closest to her heart safe. There are few books out there with such strong heroins. Women that survive being targeted by the most dangerous and deadly people in the world, women that survive the betrayal from the people closest to them. For that, a person needs to have the thirst to live, to survive and be strong enough to stay on their two feet when life trows them curve balls that most people won't be able to deal with. And that's what makes Ariel an incredible character.

As for the story line, it is intriguing and suspenseful as you can expect of such a virtuoso of romantic suspense as Meghan March is. There are twists and turns in this story that you will never expect and very likely it will leave you not knowing what's up and what's down. That's what happened to me. The action is fast paced and it will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very last page. So if you are into this genre, I can guarantee you won't regret picking up your copy ;) It was also great revisiting with couples from previous books in the series, and it didn't hurt meeting Rhett's brothers. I can honestly say that I would love to get the stories of those two. I think they will be really interesting and intriguing. But for now, I can't wait to get my hands on Ruthless King. I am sure this one is going to be incredible <3

So, in a few words, if you are looking for an amazing suspenseful romance with unexpected twists and turns, you don't have to look any further. You found your perfect math. So don't waste any time and pick up your copy of Beneath the Truth NOW!!!

P.S. I also had the chance to listen to the audio and that one is simply delicious. Sebastian York fits Rhett to a T and it can simply make you melt while listening the story ;)
