Title: A Brutal Betrayal
Author: DC Renee
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?

4 stars Intense, emotionally charged and enthralling. Those words best describe this book, in my opinion. It starts out with a prologue that would break anyone's heart. Megan , while having this horrid past, comes off as a fun character with a great personality. Fast forward a few years, and Megan still has trouble healing and her therapists sends her over to Declan, who apparently can help her in ways her therapist can't. The relationship between these two and how it unfolds and grows is beautifully written. A Brutal Betrayal is gritty and beautiful, with plot twists that left my jaw hanging and wanting for more.
