Title: A Brutal Betrayal 
Author: DC Renee
Genre: Contemporary 
Release Date: September 30, 2014

Past. Everyone has one. It shapes the person they become. It determines the present. It even contributes to the future. And sometimes, people are thrown together in spite of it. 
It was no secret that Megan Verona was raped. It crippled her being, turning her from a vibrant young woman to someone who feared intimacy. After years of struggling, she decided to seek help with a therapist, Declan Connors, in hopes of being able to finally have a relationship. Declan wanted to help Megan; he wanted to help everyone who sought his aid, but she was different. She consumed his thoughts until he could no longer deny his feelings. He hadn’t expected to fall for her and fall hard, but he did. It was a wonder when she returned some of his sentiment. But, like everyone, Declan also has a past, one riddled with pain and anguish, one he hadn’t fully dealt with. 
If helping Megan brought out his own shadows, what did loving her do? How do both their pasts play a role in their future? Most importantly, can they conquer the past that threw them together?

I really enjoyed this book. It is very well written and is almost impossible to put down.

Megan Verona was raped and years later is still struggling to overcome all the issues that one night caused her. She craves normalcy and is hoping that Declan Conners, her new therapist can get her to where she wants to be.

The first meeting with Megan, Declan immediately knows she is different than all his other patients. She is special and he doesn’t know why he can just feel it. Declan knows the perfect ways to get her to go out of her comfort zone and the more time they spend together the harder they fall. He will protect her and do whatever it takes for her to be truly happy. Declan isn’t perfect though, he also has a past that he struggles with from time to time. When these two are together it seems like there isn’t anything they couldn’t overcome.

There is a twist, and let me tell you it shocked the plum hell out of me. I seriously had my mouth hanging open and tears where streaming down my face. It’s that big of a turning point in this book. I knew I was not going to be able to put this book down until I had all the answers and even the end took me by surprise.

Overall it’s a really good read for those who don’t mind touchy subject matter and enjoy reading about characters that learn to overcome their struggles and fall in love hard.
