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.
Yes, that's where I am going to start. When I started the Chasity Falls series, I honestly wasn't sure what I was getting myself in to. I am sure glad I jumped in though. Jackson and Ana have been down an incredibly long road. I had so many predictions going into this book.
Braiden has been locked up, he took the fall for all that he had done and caused, not that he really had much of a chance. Marcus has decided to pull Jackson and Ana in and keep them lose. This makes me head swirl with questions. When Jackson told Ana and decided to "step up" his role in the family business I had no idea what that would entail. I couldn't believe Jackson went in for it. Jackson found out that Marcus was possibly the person that murdered his father. Marcus had raised Jackson as his own since his father's "accident", so it seems hard for Jackson to grasp this concept. Ana had stumbled across this information earlier on. Jackson still wanted hard proof, something solid. When Sara tells Ana she has information my mind exploded, I just could not believe what she told her! (sorry not spoiling that part) Just when things are seemingly settling down, Marcus shifts Jackson's role. He sends him out on business detail, he's in strip clubs, bars, cheap hotels. BUT! Someone is sending Ana text messages about Jackson's meetings. She had no idea he'd be going in to strip clubs. While Jackson stayed faithful, whoever is sending these messages is sending her over the edge. She as her suspicions, but that's all they are. Otis has gotten sick, and I might have teared up a bit here, and Jackson, V, and Ana all want him to fight. With Otis stuck in his ways, he is determined that if it's his time then so be it. Ana has come to love these two and accept them into her small family circle.
Dennis is Jackson's best friend, a very loyal friend. When Jackson finds out he is dating, and who he is dating I am just mind blown... Dennis really?!? Not a bad choice though, he just didn't strike me as the dating type, then again... It was kept a secret. When Jackson has the proof he needs about some bad supplies they have received, he goes straight for the top. This could be their one chance to get out, for good. I'm not spoiling the end on this one, just know it is VERY much worth the wait. I can't believe how it ended, I was for sure this was going to be the last book and I was going to close out in a blubbery mess. I must admit it was a bit of a heartbreaking thought, but when I see book 4 coming soon... I smiled like a kid on birthday morning!! I could go on and on...and on ... about this book, so many wonderful surprises. Yet, rip your heart out of your chest while stabbing it with a knife and pouring hot sauce on it moments, and so many WONDERFUL moments... I LOVE IT Great job with this series!!
I am still curious though as to how the mystery texter knew where to be and at what moments if the meetings were to be private...and why this mystery person was never noticed?
