The past is never far behind... Made (The Trinity, #2) by J.L. Lora

No matter how hard she runs . . .
The past is never far behind . . .
Will she slay the monster, once and for all, or will her past break her in the end?


Release Date: October 26th 2017

No matter how hard she runs . . .

Gia Corey’s on a first-name-basis with danger. Nothing can protect her from the madman stalking her every move. Not her vital role in New York’s most powerful cartel, her money or her influence. She can’t run from the cops coming to arrest her for the deaths of six people. She can’t hide from the past that thrusts her into the path of a madman, sets her up for murder, and threatens those she loves.

Noah McLean’s carefree lifestyle as a playboy has come to a swift and violent end. Betrayal is the bullet that forces him to take his place in the family business. Gia’s his anchor, holding him together, helping him accept the role he’s been burdened with. He fell in lust with her beauty and helplessly in love with her heart, but when danger slithers close, he risks everything to keep her safe. But she only trusts two people and Noah isn’t one of them.

The past is never far behind . . .

The monster will stop at nothing to have Gia. He’ll wage a dangerous battle where murder, extortion, and terror are his instruments to tear her way from Noah and her friends. To win the war, Gia must do the unthinkable — embrace her own inner darkness.

Will she slay the monster, once and for all, or will her past break her in the end?


Made, the second book in my Trinity Series, comes out today. The Trinity is New York’s top cartel and is run by three women who had to rise, fight, and play the cards life dealt them. Boss, book one of the series follows the rise of Carissa and The Trinity and her love affair with Alec McLean. 

With Made, I’m excited for you to read Gia and Noah’s story. They had a small part in Boss but now you get a front row seat to their journey. 
Gia is everyone’s ray of sunshine but sometimes beautiful smiles are there to cover bone deep scars. She’s a dreamer without hope, living a life that chose her, and running from a past that’s never far behind. 

Noah was born into organized crime and embraces all its aspects, the money, the danger, and the women he falls for on Saturday and can’t remember on Monday. He’s not the face of the McLean family but he embodies it. Then betrayal came where he least expected and sent him reeling. But he found a ray in that dark place that lit his way and brought him back, Gia. 

Gia and Noah’s story is one of love and lust, heartbreak and loss, trust and taking your rightful place. It’s a story of the ghosts that haunts us and the courage to stand up for yourself and those you love. 

Gia wasn’t very vocal in book one, but that doesn’t diminish her role in The Trinity. Each member of the Trinity has an equally important role in the organization. That is why the series symbol is The Trinity Knot. No matter which way you flip it, it doesn’t change its shape or strength. It’s equally powerful from all angles and their main asset is their unity. In their stories loyalty and friendship will always be front and center along with the men that consume their hearts.

I could have sworn I left a comment! Anyway, all I had planned on saying is that I'm extremely jealous (meow!) of the cover lady's curves!
