Title: Tribulation and Truths (Chastity Falls Series Book 3)
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: NA romantic suspense
Release Date: August 20th
When Ana revealed her suspicions to Jackson about the circumstances surrounding his father’s death, she never expected it to be the catalyst for a series of events that could change everything. It was supposed to save him, not push him away. But now Ana is left watching the person she loves more than anything, lose himself to vengeance.
Jackson has spent most of his life loyal to the man he calls Uncle. But since learning that Marcus Donohue might have been responsible for the death of his father, Jackson is consumed with the need for revenge. Even if it means hurting the people he loves, and going against everything he believes in, to uncover what happened.
Will the truth finally set Jackson free or will it ruin his last chance at happiness with Ana… and a life out from under the shadows of the Donohues?
Tribulations will be overcome, truths will be revealed. Welcome to Chastity Falls.
“It’s my best shot. Only one of us is walking away from this and right now my upper hand is that Marcus thinks it will be him.”
Dennis stepped off the cage and blew out a long breath. “She doesn’t know, does she?”
“No. It’s for the best. Ana thinks we’re planning how we move forward on this together.”
Over the last couple of weeks, the pieces of the puzzle had slowly been slotting into place, and more and more I was realizing it was something set into motion a long time ago.
“If shit goes south, I need to know you’ll protect her. Even if it means getting her out of Chastity Falls. She’d never leave if I asked her to, she’s stubborn and she thinks we’re in this together.”
I hated lying to Ana, but it was better for her to draw her own conclusions than for me to admit that only one of us could walk away from this—Marcus or me. It would crush her. I couldn’t do it to her. To us.
“You know I will, but does it have to go down like this?” Dennis’ Adam’s apple bobbed and the desperation in his voice caught me off guard. “Is there no other way? Maybe we could go to someone for help?”
Scrubbing a hand through my hair I leaned back against the lockers and said, “This is the only way. We both know it. This is exactly the way Marcus planned it.”
The door swung open and the rest of the team filed in. I threw Dennis a look that I hope conveyed my gratitude.
I owed him my life.
I just hoped I didn’t have to pay up.
We’re back in Chastity Falls again. This time it is Jackson’s senior year and Braiden is gone and Jax finds himself moving up in the family. Marcus is relying on him more and more, but after what Ana told him before summer, Jax is merely biding his time. Ana is feeling that strain too. After everything she and Jax had been through already, this just might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
We’re back with the usual cast of characters. A few are more front and center, like Dennis. A few are new like Perkins and Frankie. And a few are missing, thank goodness. But the drama is far from over as far as Jackson and the Donohue’s are concerned.
I’ll be honest, this book was ok. But I think that the best book so far has been the first one. I don’t know if maybe it’s my age and I’m just not into the drama or something. Which is most likely the case. But the drama seemed to go on forever and ever. I would have told Jackson to look me up once he got his stuff together because I wouldn’t be able to handle the constant drama and secrets and shady business. But that’s me, and I tend to get really frustrated with my characters when they’re all drawn into that mess when they could walk away from it. Also, what’s up with Jackson throughout this book. He really frustrated me. All hot and cold. Yeah, I’d have jumped off that rollercoaster and said “SEEYA!” But that’s me personally. It’s nothing to do with the writing or the story, it’s just I’m a 40-year-old woman looking at a college kid in a story.
Ms. Cotton’s world of Chastity Falls gets bigger and bigger. The Donohue’s aren’t the big fish, not really. And we’re just scratching that surface. She’s left so much room for expansion in this series. We KNOW that Braiden is getting a book. INTERESTING! Honestly, I’m interested to see how that one goes. I’d love to see her take a very disliked character and redeem him. (I do so LOVE a redemption story!) And potentially, I see a Dennis story as well. So, we’ll see how this all unfolds. 🙂 So would I recommend this book. I would. It is a good ending to this part of the series. I think it answers many of the lingering questions as it pertains to these two characters. The heat level is mildly steamy, so not for the youngin’s.
