Genre: Mystery, Suspense
In this, the standalone prequel to TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE…Four years ago, Brooke Connelly made the biggest mistake of her life when she betrayed her mobster boyfriend by tipping off the intended victim of his next hit. Thanks to her timely intervention, Chaz Longo was able to flee Las Vegas while Brooke opted to stay behind; a decision that nearly cost Brooke her life after she was beaten and left for dead by her boyfriend in retaliation for her betrayal. In desperation, Brooke turned to one of the most powerful men in Las Vegas for protection – unaware that her arrangement with Clint Staebler was non-negotiable and permanent.
Brooke has since relocated to L.A., where she’s the general manager of a popular restaurant and nightclub, both owned by Clint Staebler. With her recent engagement to a prominent Beverly Hills doctor and the impending arrival of their baby through a surrogate, Brooke is determined to cut all ties to her past but the cards seem to be stacked against her when her fiancé is enlisted to treat Chaz Longo, barely alive after foolishly returning to Vegas and crossing paths with Brooke’s former boyfriend. Brooke’s life is further complicated when her fiancé finds out about her past relationship with Clint Staebler and demands to know where her loyalties lie, especially after Chaz is later gunned down in Clint’s nightclub and Brooke is strangely reluctant to quit her job. Caught between a murderer and a man who refuses to let her go at all costs, Brooke plays her one trump card in the hope that it will be powerful enough to sever her ties to her past, once and for all.
