Nothing stays hidden forever.
Kara Pierce has held onto the same dream since she was a little girl: to be the next Katie Couric.
Vince Gage, a budding filmmaker whose I-don't-give-a-shit attitude cancels out his charm, almost ruined it for her once, and now he’s back, threatening to do it again.
When the two of them are paired together for a college competition with a $20,000 prize, the only thing they agree on is winning.
They return to Iowa where Kara grew up to research her grandfather's service in World War II, instead they find themselves in the middle of a family scandal kept quiet for far too long. As Kara and Vince investigate the scandal deeper, they realize the price of uncovering the truth is so much more than they bargained for.
Kara Pierce is a student and intern for journalism. Vince almost cost Kara her future so when she is forced to partner with him for a competition that could made their future; she is ready to blow a gasket. She never wanted to ever have anything to do with Vince again or go back to her hometown in Iowa but of course that's exactly what she gets. They decided to do a documentary on Kara's grandfather and his involvement in WWII.
Vince has his own secrets and has no desire to share them but while on their trip, secrets same to keep coming to the surface for everyone. As they go through Kara's grandfathers old things in the attic, they find a family secret that everyone is determined to keep hidden. As journalists this just sparks a fire within them to keep digging. The story is transformed to the new discoveries. As much as Kara tries to hold onto her hatred for Vince, she sees a side of him that she never saw before and can't help but getting lost in.
Kara's dad hasn't been a part of her life since she was 8 years old. With the new discoveries of her family she can't help but feel apathetic for him. What she doesn't expect are the revelations he unveils to her and his hearts desire. Not only is Kara now faces her whole family being turned upside down but she also has a new world of love, heartache and manipulation that she never thought she would ever have to deal with.
I enjoyed reading this book. Vince was such a smart-ass but also had this sweet side that made you want to grab his face and just kiss him. My heart went out to both Kara and Vince. They both had their worlds rocked and kept finding themselves in a territory they never thought they would be in. I wanted to punch her boss in his balls like a million times. When you read this book you will know exactly what I mean. No book with such heartbreak can end bad though. I am a sucker for happy endings and this book made me giddy with happiness. I think everyone should give this book a chance. It really is worth it and you will find yourself wanting to skip ahead to find out what happens next.
