The Insiders is the first in a brand new, page-turning romance trilogy from New York Times bestseller, Tijan!
Bailey is as normal as could be, with a genius IQ and a photographic memory. But still, normal for her. Then, things happen—a guy breaks into her house in the middle of the night to take her hostage. She finds out her father is actually billionaire tech genius Peter Francis, the same guy she’s idolized all her life. She learns all this when she meets dark, mysterious, and electrifying Kashton Colello. He’s an associate of her father’s, and he gives Bailey two choices—go with him and meet her father or survive on her own because those kidnappers are going to try again. It’s a no-brainer.
After this, three things become clear for Bailey:
1. She’s living at her father’s sprawling estate, complete with bodyguards and the best security that money can buy.
2. She’s no longer an only child. She has three siblings and has no idea what to do with them and vice versa.
3. She is being guarded by Kash himself. Personally guarded. And there is a lot of guarding going on there and some of it is going to drive her crazy.
A complete outsider in a world of wealth and decadence, Bailey has to find her way within a family that has more secrets than she could have imagined. One of these secrets could be deadly…
Fierce, addictive, and action-packed!
The Insiders is a thrilling, suspenseful tale that takes you into the life of Bailey, a highly intelligent, twenty-two-year-old girl whose life is irrevocable turned upside down after a kidnapping attempt draws her into the exceptionally perilous world of her high-tech, biological father, Peter Francis, who she was never aware she was related to, and where unfortunately it seems adultery, lies, sex, secrets, and danger run rampant.
The prose is taut and intense. The characters, including all the supporting characters, are complex, capable, and resourceful. And the plot is an alluring, twisty tale of passion, angst, wrath, loyalty, heartbreak, privilege, familial drama, duty, sizzling tension, and forbidden love.
Overall, The Insiders is an epic tale by Tijan that features an abundance of sexual chemistry, intrigue, action, and adventure. It draws you in from the very start and keeps you invested and engaged the further it goes along.
