Hidden Truths by K. Webster and Nikki Ash was an incredible read! The plot grabbed my attention right from the start, and kept me interested throughout every chapter! The pacing is perfect with absolutely no lag time, with plenty of drama, angst, and red hot, delicious, steam to keep things going. Readers that loved The Merciless world by Willow Winters, The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shen or Bloodstained Beauty by Ella Fields NEED Hidden Truths stat.

Kostas is one of my favorite alpha/bully

OMG this book is amazing!! Nikki Ash and K. Webster out did themselves with this one. Talia and Kostas are amazing! They are explosive and entertaining. I love how she doesn’t let her circumstances define her. Kostas doesn’t let the past of others define his relationship with Talia. Together they find their own kind of normal. In this book you should expect the unexpected. I won’t give anything away! Definitely need to read without have spoilers give it away. Definitely recommend Hidden Truths a ...more

I need more Kostas in my life!!

And here comes Kostas, coming into my life like he owns the place! Now calming my heart after reading book 1 of this duet, I need to refill more wine and grab my blanket, before I chew off my nails. The emotions, the angst, the love, the hate... you feel every single one of them and leaves you all out of sorts. In Hidden Truths, you learn looks can be deceiving so never judge a book by its cover. Sometimes the biggest snake wears a charming face. All the twists a

Oh.EM.GEEEEE!!! This book will turn you inside out! This story has THE PERFECT mix of Nikki and K! Dark and gritty, meets swoony and hopeful...plus suspense,angst,steam,mystery....there is a little of EVERYTHING! The story line is so beautifully woven together, I couldn't put it down once I started! It took me a few days to formulate words that could even do this book justice.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
I knew when I saw that K. Webster had a new duet coming out that I HAD to read it. Along with author Nikki Ash, this is a story that will have your head spinning but leave you wanting more.
Talia is in college, living a carefree life and about to go to America with her boyfriend. When her brother arrives to take her back to see their father. She doesn't know why or what is going on and her brother doesn't know

5 stars
M/F Mafia Dark Romance
I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Whew! This book will suck you right in. It's dark, twisted and while there are some parts that made my stomach hurt, it's very well done. This isn't for someone who is easily offended or someone who may be sensitive to consent, but, if you can handle those things, you'll absolutely enjoy this dark romance.

Hidden Truths is book 1 of the Truth and Lies duet. Stolen Lies is book 2 and the conclusion to Kostas and Talia's story.

I loved almost every element and aspect that made up this incredible book - the arranged marriage, the mafia, the dark, the action, the violence - all things that make my blood sing.

Talia is your average girl. She goes to school, has a social life, acts her age. She's also beautiful, strong to endure so much and intelligent. Not quite badass in your typical her

Well this was a nice surprise, I read it so fast! It was interesting and I was intrigued! There are some twists that I didn’t see them coming! I’m excited to see what will happen next! I’m curious how this will continue! It was sexy, fast paced with slow burn!

I find it a little bit funny not for the story but since I’m from Greece and the names and places are from my country it was nice seeing them!

Holy Dysfunctional Families!!! This book is twisted, dark, sexy and will take you on a hell of a ride! You will devour this book and beg for more!! I loved it.

Kostas and Talia are pushed into an arranged marriage because of their families secrets. Secrets that destroy lives and futures.

Kostas was a character that gave my heart a full blown tug of war battle. I didn't know whether to hate him or love him. I finally got my feelings resolved by the end of this book....I am loving me some Kostas!

I honestly don't think there is a subject K Webster can write bad, everything is always top notch. Also it doesn't matter who she teams up with since they always write so flawlessly together.
I already loved both authors style of writing separately but together is like mind blowing.
Right onto the book.
All i can say is what in the actual fudge.
A good few times this book had me literally gasping. And a couple of "nooo i can't believe that happened"

This is book of the “Truth & Lies” Duet. It ends in a cliffy so be prepared.

First of all, mafia romance is one of my faves and this is no different. I am in love with the characters. There was dark, sexy, hopeful, twisted and messed up. Everything you need to make an incredible book!!

This was written by two authors I am familiar with yet it flowed as if one author wrote it. Flawless and beautiful.

Though there are definitely some gruesome aspects to this book, I couldn't stop myself from reading...page after page after page!!

Kostas and Talia are forced into an arranged marriage and the secrets and lies that bring them together try multiple times to also tear them apart.

There are so many things I LOVED about this story, but I can't share much because I don't want to ruin it for anyone else enjoying it for the first time - because I can't imagine anyone reading

Dark romantic suspense at its finest! Sweet innocent Talia is sold off by her own flesh and blood to pay for a debt...a life for a life. Sexy dangerous Kostas gets much more than he bargained for when his crime family collects on a debt. Hang on, because from here on it’s one helluva ride!

You know when an author writes that a character let out a breath they didn’t even know they were holding...well, I did that, over and over!! Bloody, violent...hate, lust...steamy and, believe it or not, sweet!

The first in a duet, this story is captivating. There's so much angst, drama and suspense I literally couldn't put it down. There's a feeling of dread and I keep waiting for the other shoe to fall, to no avail, I'm sure I'll be on pins and needles until the second story is released.
Kostas is as controlling of an alpha as I have ever seen, but there's something buried deep inside the monster that very few if any have seen. Talia is a free spirit and a bit of a spitfire. I adore her sass. To

I went into this story completely blind, didn't know what to expect and sometimes that the best way....wow what a story! Please be aware that Hidden Truths is part one of a duet, so it does leave you on a cliffhanger 😱

Gahhhhh!!! This book! I am so sucked into Kostas and Talia and just everything! This story has a bit of a captive theme but I love the crime organization twist. And don't even get me started on Aris. There's suspense, intrigue and unpredictable bumps in the new relationship between Kostas and Talia. At about halfway through I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! AND I was only halfway through! This read was addictive and a bit of a page turner because I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop. ...more

Wow!! Hidden Truths reached into places I never thought possible; where dark and twisted meets light and airy! You are quickly introduced to another world that most people don’t get to see. A world where monsters hide around every corner and you don’t know who to trust. I am normally not a fan of dark romance but this book drew me in from the start; I honestly could not put it down.
