Being Nobody is the first book in the Witness series and wow is all I can say. Right from the prologue I was hooked.

Sam, or Mallory, has been on the run for years. Being in the witness protection program she's had many identities and never had a chance to live. There was one time she did, but then had to say goodbye, which broke me.

Now she's 26 and living her life in Chicago, but then things start happening. She meets the sexy Brian and things start twisting and turning. The suspense will pull you in.

I love everything about this book. It's so much more than a girl who has been on the run, but someone who wants answers and to stop running so she can find love and live her life again.

"At twenty-six, I had hoped that I'd be happy, have a career, a husband, or at least a boyfriend. But how is that ever going to happen if I can't be honest. How will I ever have a career if I can't stay somewhere long enough to finish school? How will I ever be happy, if I can't be me? Being no one sucks...I should know; I've had my entire life to perfect it."

When you reach near the end your mouth will drop!

I found this book and author by word of mouth and the actual author's suggestion on the Facebook page for a book event that is coming to Charlotte, NC in August. I am super excited about this event, but I realized I had not read of any of the authors. So I posted on the page asking for suggestions and Heather responded! I found her book on sale on Amazon, purchased it and quickly became engrossed in the unfolding story.

**As a little aside there are some scenes in this book, but not the review, that is for mature audiences:)-**

If you have read my reviews, you know I do not always enjoy the series approach to books because if it is a good book you get to the cliffhanger and are like no..just no..when will I get an answer! Well, this book has that cliffhanger, but it is done in a way that the immediate story has been concluded and questions answered, so I actually enjoyed that this is a series and not just told in one lump go of it. For those that still do not like series, I am not sure how many will be in this series, but book two came out today!

Heather is an excellent story teller and her writing style is very captivating. I felt like I was getting to know the characters and could appreciate the secrets being kept, the emotional turmoil over not being honest with individuals, wanting to have a different life, feeling the pain of decisions and lost love, etc. While I correctly surmised some of the twists there were also quite a few that was like..well color me surprised I didn't see that one coming and I loved that! Heather has a talent and skill set that kept me captivated with the story, characters and situation. I have already purchased book two in this series and cannot wait to start reading it this week!

Being Nobody started off great. Ms. D’Agostino does an excellent job of setting up Sam/Mallory’s story. I felt both sadness at the loss of her childhood and adolescence – so many friends lost, so many opportunities missed, and so much time gone – and awe for her strength as she continues to survive and live her life as best as the circumstances allow. And living on the run in the Witness Protection plan didn’t lend itself to the best of circumstances.

When we meet Sam she is living as Mallory. She is snarky, confident, a bit of a smarta$$ – everything I like in a heroine. Her interactions with her coworkers and the bar patrons felt real and I was sucked right into her story. I loved the dance she and Brian played on the first night they met – their banter was entertaining, yet she maintained the distance her WP identity required. The pace of the book was great and the storyline was moving fluidly … until they had sex. Mind you the sex was hot, but it supposedly so intense that her entire existence shifted on its axis and she found herself falling for Brian – not drawn to him, not infatuated, not lust, but falling in love with him after knowing him for only a couple of days. I so totally got that she was initially drawn to him because he reminded her of the only guy she ever loved, but to be so far gone after one night of sex made no sense. Add to that her getting mad at him for keeping secrets about his “job” after saying she understood and her constant back and forth on that subject made me dizzy especially as her WP status made her the Queen of Secrets (pot meet kettle).

Heather D'Agostino weaves a story so amazing in book one of her new Witness Series, Being Nobody, that you will be captivated by the very first page and the intrigue will keep you turning each additional page with such anticipation that you will not be able to put it down! A book like none other that I have read, the reader is presented with the topic of the life in witness protection, and what it means for a person to constantly have to reinvent who there are in order to stay alive. This was a 4 star read for me and I will wait with baited breath for the next book to be released because I am dying to know what will come of Sam's future.

"Sam, Emily, Jessica, Susan, Mallory and all the other girls I'd been in my life would have never gone off with someone like this. I was tired of being nobody. I wanted to be somebody and I wanted to be somebody with Brian."

After her father becomes the only surviving witness to a crime when she was just seven years old, Sam is thrown into a life of witness protection with her parents so ensure that they stayed alive while the guilty parties were found and brought to justice. Always having to live a lie and leave at the drop of a hat was difficult for a young girl growing up, never getting close to anyone, never having friends and knowing that you could never let anyone get close enough to learn about who you really were. Sam, who now goes by Mallory, is living on her own in Chicago, just minutes away from her mother, where she works as a bartender. Not being able to attend college because she was never in one place long enough to attend school, she doesn't have many choices for a career and she yearns for something more in her life.
