Innocence & Betrayal by: Brittney Sahin

Innocence & Betrayal is the second book in the Hidden Truths Series but can be read as a standalone.

Innocence & Betrayal is about a woman named Ava Daniels, a reserved biochemist that has spent six months woking on a top secret assignment for Homeland Security. On her one night of freedom, her boss is missing, and her lab is empty. Interrogated, followed, and attacked, Ava fns herself in search of answers as the clock winds down. 

Aiden O'Connor, Irish born and raised, tried to put his past behind him when he opened a bar in the heart of Boston. One night Ava Daniels shows up at his bar asking for help. She is unlike any woman Aiden has ever met before but once he learns the true nature of her problem, Aiden realizes that she is the key to unlocking his past and possibly getting a second chance. 

The plot, characters, and overall novel just made Innocence & Betrayal an amazing read. The fact that the characters, Ava and Aiden, felt so flawed yet so right made the novel an even more delightful read. Their chemistry and attraction, plus the fact that they were on the run and could truly only rely on one another, left me feeling even more for the novel and characters. The character transitions for both Ava and Aiden left me with a smile because of no matter what they thought, they changed and became even better for it. Another bonus to this novel would have to be that Brittney Sahin, the author, did not drag the novel on. The novel was beautifully pieced together and seemed to just to work out overall. Plus, for those that don't like cliffhangers, this novel does not have a cliffhanger. In the end, I am definitely glad that I checked this novel out.

If you like suspense, romance, chemistry, and mystery then you should pick up this novel and check it out today. 


Summary from Goodreads:
Reserved biochemist Ava Daniels has spent the last six months working on a top secret assignment for Homeland Security. One morning, after a night of finally letting loose, she discovers her lab empty and her boss missing. Interrogated by the very organization she works for, followed by unknowns, and attacked, Ava finds herself in search of answers as the clock winds down.

Aiden O’Connor, Irish born and raised, attempted to put his past behind him when he opened a bar in the heart of Boston. One night, Ava Daniels shows up to his bar asking for help. She is like no other woman he has ever met—breathtakingly beautiful, brilliant, and in terrible danger. Once he learns the true nature of her problem, Aiden realizes she is the key to unlock his past . . . and perhaps to get a second chance.

Innocence & Betrayal is a stand-alone romance suspense novel in the Hidden Truths series. Hidden Truths: Each stand-alone novel is riddled with mystery and romance, as lies and corruption are unraveled to reveal the truth.
