False Start - Meli Raine
This isn't how my life is supposed to end.
Then again, a case of mistaken identity got me here. No one is ever who we think they are. Especially my kidnapper, a man whose entire life is designed to deceive.
Powerful people want my rescuer to die. I'm just a lure. A pawn. An object.
But objects hold meaning. Emotions attach themselves without logic.
I now know that Duff will do everything to protect me.
If he gets here in time. And if I can hold on long enough.
Because my body can only handle so much. Pushed to the limits, it's finally giving out. Giving way.
I know Duff, though.
He never will.
Read the stunning conclusion to USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine’s False series, told from both Lily and Duff’s points of view.
Reviews for False Memory:
"The first book in the False trilogy is a psychological thriller worthy of Hitchcock, keeping you guessing until the very end. Lily Thornton is the ultimate unreliable narrator—after waking from a 14-month coma, she struggles to remember the day she was shot. As Lily slowly recovers, she’s terrified when she recognizes the face of her would-be killer among her inner circle—but can she trust her own memory? With potential enemies at every turn, a twisty political conspiracy, and just a hint of romance, False Memory offers thrills that will delight both romance and mystery readers."
-- Apple Books Review
“…intrigue and dark humor on display in this thriller…”
While the immediate—and more compelling—tension in Raine’s (A Shameless Little Bet, 2018, etc.) heart-pumping series opener comes from Lily’s constant proximity to her would-be killer, the action takes place against a backdrop of secret government scandals.
Fortunately, Lily’s voice is captivating, wry, and tough enough to sell this thriller. The novel ends with a cliffhanger that startles, if only because readers will have become so attached to Lily.
