Rating: FOUR STARS
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…
I received an ARC from Netgalley for an honest review. Thank you!
Tijan is one of my favorite authors and I love her books. The insiders is a little different from her others books but I liked it. The Insiders is the first book of the trilogy Insiders by Tijan.
The Insiders is the story of Bailey, a genius girl who idolized her father Peter without knowing that’s is her father, she found out that’s her father after someone tried to kidnap her and the mysterious Kashton Colello saved her. After that night Bailey’s life changed completely, she had to leave her old life behind and move with Kashton. She found out that she has three siblings but she can’t say to them who she is but she had the opportunity to meet them and to form beautiful bonds with them. She loves that she has three siblings and she wants to love them and to protect them and to part of this new family. She also wants a normal relationship with her father and to love her.
She lives with Kaston but for her, he is a mystery, she feels safe with him and she knows that he will protect her but she doesn’t know if she can’t trust him. Her relationship with him is complicated because he is her bodyguard but she is attracted to him and she can’t stay away from him and began a relationship with him. You can feel the sizzling attraction between them.
I liked the relationship between Bailey and her father Peter and how he found the courage to apologize to her and to try to have a normal relationship. I loved the relationship between Kashton and Bailey. I love the formed relationship between Bailey and her siblings. The Insiders by Tijan have everything, mystery, twists, action, and romance. I can’t wait to read the second book from this trilogy.
