Chastity Falls was supposed to be Ana Parry’s fresh start. But what started as her salvation soon became her undoing.

Four months after losing the very thing that gave her reason again, Ana is back at Chastity Falls. Holding on by a thread and trying hard to forget about Jackson isn’t easy when she’s determined to uncover the Donohue’s biggest secrets.

Jackson Pierce knew he was playing with fire when he pursued the girl with pain in her eyes. But there was something about her and he just had to know more.

Walking away from Ana was the hardest thing he’s ever done, and four months on, he refuses to forget. He can’t. Rising tensions with Reibeckitt Valley mean Ana is still in harm’s way and, this time, Jackson is determined to protect her—at all costs.

Loyalty drove them apart, but will secrets piece them back together? Or tear them apart for good?

Salvation will be earned, secrets will be unveiled. Welcome to Chastity Falls

This is book TWO in the series, so if you haven't read book one, you may want to avoid my review!
As with Loyalty and Lies, Ana and Jax are totally brilliant in Salvation and Secrets. They are two characters that are easy to connect with. Whether you have been in a similar situation or not, you find yourself empathising with the pair. We pick up where book one left off, with Ana and Jax no longer being together. He broke it off because he thought he was doing the right thing. The Donahue family would always have Ana in their sights if the pair remained together, but if Jackson let her go, then surely they'd let sleeping dogs lie. Wouldn't they?
In hindsight, Jackson realises that it may not have been the best plan and he can't stop thinking about the beautiful, most amazing girl that makes him feel things like no other. 
Ana can't seem to forget about him. She wants to avoid him at all costs and that plan goes well... for a while anyway. 

The back story that we have been learning about the Donahue family continues. Braiden continues to be a jack ass of the highest order. Jackson continues to try and keep Braiden's temper in check. He's not happy with the way his friend goes about things, kicking ass and asking no questions. If he's not careful, someone is going to get hurt.

I absolutely loved learning more about the history of the Donahue's as Ana dug into their background. It provided more insight into some things and put them into perspective. I hated the fact that Ana and Jax were now apart. But he thought he was keeping her out of harm's reach - although in reality it came to be the worst possible decision. The story really pulled on my heartstrings. I went on a emotional roller coaster with the pair. 
This story is fast-paced, well-timed and beautifully written. There's more than enough drama to keep you on the edge of your seats and enough of the mushy stuff to keep your head in the clouds with love in the air. 
I am truly grateful to have received an ARC of this book and cannot wait to get a signed copy when I am lucky enough to meet Lianne Cotton at Second City Signing in July. 
Well done Lianne on another astounding novel and thank you for giving me more Jax to swoon over.

Thank you for coming by for my stop on the tour.
