'Don’t you want to know Stayton’s darkest secret?' He taunts; his voice filled with every ounce of persuasion. It’s like he’s dangling an apple in front of my eyes, an apple with all the answers and he’s just waiting for me to reach out and take it. 'I can tell you.' He whispers inside my head; taunting and teasing even more. -----------------------------
Bethany Cooper lived in the small town of Prince George with her mother and father but wasn't a happy little family. Bethany has a secret, a secret she didn't want anyone else to know but when four men steal her from her bed one night claiming that they know her secret and that they want to help her she doesn't know whether to believe them, especially since the leaders right hand man, Stayton, is a jerk and doesn't feel guilty about hurting her to get the job done. She considers running but when they tell her of two people who really do want to hurt her she doesn't know who to believe. Them? Or her conscious?
Can Bethany learn to trust them so she can learn the full brunt force of her secret? Or run? And what happens when she finds out they have a secret of their own which they aren't willing to share? And to top it all off what happens when unwanted feelings show up in unwanted places?
