Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author K Webster and Nikki Ash comes Hidden Truths, a romantic suspense.

My life was easy, simple, fun. Light. Until I got wrapped up with the wrong people. 

Nothing but a piece of property, to pay for the sins of my father. I’m to be married off to a handsome monster. 

I see his truths every day, and it’s hard not to fall for the enemy. He won’t let me escape, but I’m not sure I want to. 

I wanted to marry for love, but it looks like love is a lie. 

Hidden Truths is book one in the Truths and Lies duet.

Buyer Beware

This book was released years ago under a different title, I believe. Regardless, it wasn't released March 11th of this year. Fore shame to all who participated in this deceit. I want my credit back.

This is a little too rapey for me.

It started out well, but after the female protagonists was raped, the events that follow were kind of toxic and abusive. I would have loved to see the evolution of the male protagonist but he was unchanging throughout. The female protagonists was too weak and it seems their resolution of problems was sex, sex and sex. This ends in a cliffhanger, so hopefully the second book is better.

So enjoyed this first installment!

Having picked up this duo's work many times before i've been wanting to get into more of their cowritten books! Ever since i found out about this duet i've wanted to jump into it. As soon as this audiobook was announced i knew it was the perfect time to get into it. I started listening to it as soon as i could and got pulled right into the Truths and Lies world! I so enjoyed this first installment!

Having listened to Sarah Puckett's narration many times before it always makes my audiobook loving heart so happy to hear her voice! Being new to Jeffrey Holz's narration i couldn't wait to listen to him! He and Sarah were both so great with their narration! I really enjoyed what they both brought to the story as Talia and Kostas!

This first installment in Talia and Kostas's journey pulled me in so quickly! An arranged marriage brings these two into each other's lives. I wasn't sure what all to expect in this story and that had me even more into this listen. I was so glad that i got to jump into both of their minds. Their story kept me on my toes and glued to my earbuds.

I loved how i felt so much throughout with both Talia and Kostas!

With Hidden Truths, Ms.Ash and Ms.Webster have created such a good and dark journey! I can't wait to find out what happens next with these characters in the second installment, Stolen Lies! I so want to listen to more of Jeffery's and Sarah's narration in the future as well!

Hidden Truths

This is the first book in the Truths and Lies Duet. I loved this book. Natalia is an art student in Italy. She has just finished her Junior year of college and is about to have the best summer. Then before she can leave her brother comes to bring her to their father. Only they are not going home. Her father is a sleazy man. He has gambled everything he has away. He gambles from the wrong man for the last time. Natalia is what he uses to pay his debt off. She is forced into marriage with his eldest son. This book ends on one heck of a cliffhanger. I was not expecting that to happen. I can’t wait for the next book. Jeffery Holz and Sarah Puckett did an incredible job narrating this book.

Captivating!

This is the first book in the Truths and Lies Duet, a Dark Mafia Romance. This story is captivating. Thalia and Kostas's story is suspenseful, filled with angst, secrets, lies, mystery and action. Thalia is beautiful, strong and determined. Kostas is ruthless, powerful, and enigmatic. Some scenes are intense. The supporting characters are intriguing. The story ends with a cliffhanger, and I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the duet. Sarah Puckett and Jeffrey Holz did an excellent job with the narration. There are perfect as Thalia and Kostas. If you like Dark Mafia Romance, this duet is for you. #TheFlock

Heart pounding

TRIGGER: RAPE and Suicide

This is the first book I've read/listened to by Nikki Ash and K Webster. It was excellent. It was heartbreaking. I was glued to the storyline. My emotions are flying and I'm completely on edge. I cried. I'm so anxious. I cannot wait to see how this will become an HEA story. Huge cliffhanger. I'm holding my breath until the next book is available.

Sarah Puckett and Jeffrey Holz are excellent narrators. This book rolled like a movie in my head. Perfect performances!!

Great Mafia Romance

This book had everything going for it. Steamy, dark, enemies to lovers and so  addicting! Love this Mafia romance that includes an arranged marriage.
I don't think I ever loved to hate so many characters in one book. This story drew me in and kept me listening. I loved the Greek references as well. Cannot wait for book 2.

Amazing Story & Narration🎧 Twisted & Gripping!

Wow, this is an amazing dark and twisted mafia romantic suspense, the story swept right in, immediately grabbing my attention and captivating it the entire book. The book needs to come with a warning label that once you start, you cannot stop because you need to know what happens next and with all the twists and turns expect to have your mind blown and to be taken to the edge of your seat. Nikki Ash and K. Webster are gifted authors with brilliant minds and they make a great writing team together, creating storylines that are interesting and characters that are easy to connect with and even fall for, monsters included, which you may hate to love or love to hate. The rug gets pulled out from under Thalia Nikolaides and her life was not only no longer as she knew it, but it was no longer her own life. One day she was a college student in Italy with plans to travel to the US with her American boyfriend Alex for the summer break and the next day her brother Phoenix is dragging her to Greece to see their father Niles. She became a pawn, thrown into a world she knows nothing about thanks to her father who owes a debt and she is to be the payment to pay it off, a bride for a mafia prince, Kostos Demetriou. Kostos’ father arranged the deal and Kostos is on board because he trusts his father’s reasons, a father who also had an arranged marriage to his mother and it was a happy one. Thalia meets the two Demetriou brothers without even knowing who they were, Kostos, the dark and intense alpha of the two and the one she is to marry, and Aris, the brother who appears playful and caring. It is the next day when Thalia learns her fate and she is not happy about it, but after an attempted escape, she is taught a lesson, a lesson of what her future life holds. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted with drama, angst, mind-blowing twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and a hot and steamy romance. Nikki Ash and K. Webster, thank you for this amazing story, the thrilling emotional rollercoaster ride and that mind-f’ing ending, I am looking forward to finding out what is going on.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Jeffry Holz and Sarah Puckett are the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. They have a complete understanding of the characters they portray, giving each a voice that suits each character to a tee, sounding believable and just as I picture the characters to sound. Both nail it in the lead roles, Holz playing the perfect Mafia boss, alpha-dude and all, Sarah plays Thalia with perfection, growing into the strong and confident woman she is becoming. They are great performing all the secondary and support characters as well. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured the character’s emotions and projected them into their performance, having you feel every single one. These entertaining storytellers are a pleasure to listen to and their narration enhances an already amazing story to another level. Thank you for the exceptional listen!

Thank you @PinkFlamingoProductions The Flock! @AudiobookObsession AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

Loved it!

Hidden Truths, the first instalment in the Truths and Lies Duet, is a fantastic collaboration between two gifted authors, Nikki Ash and K Webster. The story is brilliantly written, riveting, and totally stunning arranged marriage mafia romance, wrapped in intensity, suspense, and surprising twists and turns. The character development is phenomenal. Kostas Demetriou is dangerous, dark, and an heir to the family organized crime business. Talia Nikolaides is delicate and beautiful, promised by her father to Kostas as debt repayment. The contrast between Talia and Kostas is like day and night, light and dark. Despite their dissimilarities, the chemistry is electrifying and potent. I'm definitely looking forward to finding out what comes next for the unlikely couple.

Jeffrey Holz and Sarah Puckett did an incredible job with the narration. They captured and portrayed the nuances of Kostas and Talia's personalities, emotions, and connection flawlessly. They breathed life into the story and made it even more engaging. Hidden Truths is a very well written romance with quality narration, one I highly enjoyed and will recommend.

Audiobook Obsession reviewer Flock Reviewer

Fantastic book with a story that does not let up. Putting Nikki Ash and K Webster together to write a book in my opinion is a guaranteed amazing book for me and this one did not disappoint. This is the kind of book that has me hiding from my family trying to get a few extra minutes of story in before I have to rejoin the world. This book captivated me from the start til the last second and I am hoping the next one is here sooner rather than later because I was not ready to leave this world

Extremely entertaining, captivating and so addicti

Trigger Warning: Rape.

I got this audiobook via a promo code from The Flock and this is my voluntary review.

Can someone get proof that the lovely Sarah Puckett hasnt in fact been kidnapped by a series of Cartels? Every time I've heard her voice recently, shes been in some high stakes arranged marriage with her fleeing Mafia/Cartel types.

This book ends on a cliff hanger, and resumes in Stolen Lies. Told in Dual Narration, Jeffrey Holz was fantastic as Kostas. In his own words and actions, Kostas is a psychopath. He is violent but under control, having grown up as the son of Crete's mafia king. He is both wealthy and dangerous beyond comprehension. When he is told he must marry the daughter of his father's adversary, he does so without question or hesitation. Talia and Kostas make an intriguing reluctant couple. She's been stolen from her life, sold as a debt for her fathers crimes but that doesnt mean Kostas is going to allow her to return to freedom “I am yours now as much as you are mine. And I vow to never let you go, even then.”

Sarah Puckett did an amazing job of portraying Talia caught in the crosshairs of a powerful family and her own. I'm excited for book 2.

Truths

Loved the dual narration of Jeffrey Holz and Sarah Puckett

Talia start sweet and innocent . Slowly she start fighting and standing up for herself. Kostas is a mob boss he definitely treated Talia hot and then cold, she never knew what version of him she would be getting. The story does end on a cliffhanger so be prepared

Hidden Truths

Hidden Truths Book 1 of The Truth & Lies Duet by Nikki Ash and K. Webster
Narration by Sarah Puckett and Jeffrey Holz

Kostos and Thalia.

This is a fast paced thrilling book. I’m a fan of both Nikki Ash and K. Webster and knew this would be an awesome audiobook. It’s different from other mafia arranged marriage

Thalia is strong willed for being thrust into this arranged marriage. I thought she would crack but she’s staying put and she’s trying to find her place in this messed up world that she’s been thrust into.

Kostos is what everyone should envision in a heir to a very powerful mafia family.

This audiobook is done brilliantly by Sarah Puckett and Jeffery Holz. Sarah is a favourite of mine and she has an amazing way of reaching my soul with books like this. Jeffrey has the nuances to reflect his emotions from ruthlessness to feelings as close as one can get to live in this situation. He is definitely an alpha and controlling.

This book left me shocked and just clinging to know what was going to happen next. I’m so on pins and needles needing to know what happens with all of these characters. It’s a story full of twists and turns, surprises and deceit and secrets. Well named as Hidden Truths abound.

Could barely put it down

As much as this wasn't exactly what I expected (and when one of the author's is K. Webster why am I surprised) I managed to finish this quicker than I thought I would. Could have done with a warning for one of those twists, but all said, I'm excited to see how Tallia find her steel spine. Kostas is just okay for me so far.

Wow

Wow.
I have no idea what I feel right now.
First off, I love the story. I don't even mind the 'trigger' it has for some. I'm a suspense lover after all.
What I don't like is the way Kosta alpha a-h0l3n3ss is. I understand the dark, mafia part of him makes him a monster but there were points I just felt like it was too much.
I really enjoyed this read including the cliffhanger but now I need book 2!

Hidden Truths - Part one of a duet
I found this to be a captivating listen with plenty of suspense and twists and turns throughout the story. I enjoyed Talia's character from the start - she was sweet and innocent and it really took her a while to start fighting and standing up for herself. Kostas is a mob boss with distorted views and he definitely treated Talia hot and then cold, she never knew which version of himself she would be getting. The story does end on a cliffhanger so be prepared to get the ebook since the audio isn't available yet. Sarah Puckett did a great with Talia while Jeffrey Holz did well with Kostas I did struggle with his voice for Talia and side characters but overall it turned out to be an entertaining listen with good narration.

Definitely look into TW if you are sensitive reader as the plot twist in the middle was unexpected.
