Wow, what an ending! I was reading the end of this book while sitting in my car waiting for my eldest charge to get out of school, his 6 year old brother in the passenger seat. As I shouted "No, you can't end it like that!" at my Kindle, he asked me why I was doing it! All I could say is that I was reading a good book and the author had ended it with a cliffhanger, and what a cliffhanger it was!

It is a long time since a book has drawn me in so much. In the synopsis it says that someone Li

I had picked this book up based on a recommendation that was on Facebook. I was looking for something with a bit of a love triangle and this seemed exactly what I was looking forward. The author put forth a storyline that was compelling, but I couldn't connect with the characters. I wanted Lillian to really sway me one way or another, especially as she finds herself with feelings for both of her FBI protectors. She was so closed off that I found it a little unbelievable that she could fall for W ...more

Yes!

Kasidy Blake wrote a suspenseful, fast paced, thriller I could not stop reading. I love it and will immediately read the sequel.

Two young children have their parents killed in front of them and are taken into Witness Protection. Years later, they're still in when circumstances force the brother and sister to part. Before that happens, one is kidnapped. The rest is a race to save them both.

Will either make it out alive?

What happens to the men protecting them?

Read and find out.

Who I Was is a completely captivating read. There is SO much action, emotion, tension, drama, and just awe-inspiring romance that it left me breathless and wanting MORE!

Author Kasidy Blake left us readers surprised, sad, and completely shocked. I truly liked how this story turned out. This is about a young woman, Lillian, who watched her parents get murdered when she was just a little girl. Her only family alive

Wow what a fantastic ride that was. A story of love, lies, loss and heart wrenching deceit in the most unimaginable way. Then throw in a love triangle and a major cliff hanger and we have perfection.

Lillian and Parkers parents were brutally murdered right in front of them when Lillian was four years old. From that moment on Lillian and Parker are living under witness protection with new i

Who I Was is the debut novel for new author Kasidy Blake. I was impressed with the plotting and the overall theme for this story. It ended on a monumental cliffhanger that has me dying for the next book.

Who I Was is about a young woman, Lillian, that witnessed her parents murder as a young child. She and her brother have been in the witness protection program since the murder. They have been bounced from place to place and never have had any real roots.

It is discovered that there is a leak within the Witness

4.5 Stars

I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.
This story has several different peoples POV. These are my favorite type of books to read, simply because you get to see what is happening from all angles. I knocked off one star for 2 reasons. Those reasons are because of the language. I feel that an author can get a point across without using curse words every other senten

Let me start off by saying that I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and kept my interest from beginning to end. The whole idea of someone being in the witness protection program put a different spin on your typical romance novel. If you like a little mystery and a little suspense but nothing too intense, then this book will not disappoint.

Lillian (who goes by a couple different names in the book, which, surprisingly, I was able to keep track of) has had a hard life. Growi

Lillian and her brother Parker have been in witness protection and hiding from the evil man that killed their parents. They are on the run again as he is closer to finding them. While in a safe house they are attacked and Parker is taken. Lillian is left in the care of agent Braxton, Parker's best friend. Braxton and another agent are there to pro

This is a totally awesome read. I can't wait for the next book in the series. Ms Blake did a wonderful job with the character build up. You were drawn in with the angst romance and the suspense. I was lucky enough to be given this ARC for an honest review.
Well let me say. Honestly I couldn't put it down. It' is a page turner. The twist and turns have you waiting with baited breath to see where the next chapter is going to take you. Braxton and Cannon are such Alpha Males it heats up every page

Who I Was, was an amazing read. I was very surprised with the turn of events in this book. You’re going to be on the edge of you seat the whole time. This is a fast fun read and there is not a moment where you want to put the book down. I was blown away with how much excitement was thrown in to this fast read. There is a perfect cliffhanger that takes you right to the edge and leaves you!!!! What more can you ask for? I have to say this is a very well written book. Great Job, Kasidy.

From page one, I was launched into a world of danger and secrecy.
The bond between Lillian and Parker is heartwarming. Her frantic fear for her brother's safety was contagious, I found my own heart pounding, waiting to find out if he was ok.
The chemistry between Lillian and Braxton was great, and then Cannon came into the picture and sparks flew. I couldn't wait to see who she would choose... and while I won't give it away, I will say that I wasn't disappointed.

It is hard to believe that this is a first time author. The story is solid. It

what happens to these characters is truly a gift. And hot sex! Not too much that
it takes away from the story, but a few panty wetting ones. The cliffhanger

I was gifted this book by the very talented and entertaining J.S. Cooper and I am so glad I read it.

This book was full of twists and turns.......great read. I can not wait to find out what happens in the next book......you will get so invested with these characters. I hope that Brax (my fav) can get something good for him in the next book. This book was not only sexy but it had a great story line.....Read this book peeps!!!!!

Phenomenal

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started the book but once I started reading I couldn't stop. The story is amazing and it keeps you glued to see what happens next. Cannon aka Wesson out some a dream and I actually like him better than Braxton so not to spoil it for those who haven't read or finished all I can say is I have my favorite and I hope love is strong enough for them to find a happy ending even . though one may not be in the cards

Who I Was by Kasidy Blake is a fast paced, suspense filled read. The characters are wonderful, and surprisingly easy to love. Maybe not trust so much, though. This book does have a huge cliffhanger, so I will be moving right into book 2.
