A traitor lies within.

CALLIE

I met him at a basement party when we were fourteen. I was looking for an adventure, he was looking for an escape. That night, we found both and never looked back.

We traveled on a wayward path for far too long. Tommy turned to a life in the shadows. Me? A life between the sheets. All that time, I thought I was addicted to sex.

Turns out, I was just addicted to him.

We took a lot of wrong turns, met a lot of bad people on the way to the salvation we've managed to find in each others arms.

I thought when we walked away, there were no loose ends.

Turns out, I was wrong about that, too.

TOMMY

By the time she came to me, I was already a walking statistic. That night, though, something inside me sparked to life. A fate neither of us could comprehend erupted, exploded.

The second I saw her in that basement fifteen years ago, I think a part of me already knew. I took her hand and we never looked back. I gave her excitement, she gave me hope.

For over a decade, we belonged to the dark corners of the city, denying ourselves nothing in the name of lust and survival. When I finally walked away, I made a lot of enemies, but it was never about them, only her.

It's always been her.

I never regretted my choice to walk away, because it was that choice that gave me the courage to finally take her as mine and mine alone.

At first, we thought they'd let us go. For months, we thought we'd escaped.

We were wrong.

Our past has come knocking and now, it wants us back.

Traitor is the mind blowing, epic conclusion to The Callie Leveaux Series and is full-length and multi-POV.

I was lucky to have the opportunity to read all three books, Escort, Savage, and Traitor. These books all go together, and picks up right where the other one left off. I highly recommend reading them in order, as a series. There really is no other way to read these books. Traitor could be very confusing without the other two books, and just interesting, to say the least.

Tommy and Callie have come from basically the same walks of life. In Escort we learn that Callie has a horrid secret that only Tommy really knows about. Callie insists she only does it to pay the bills, and make ends meet. Tommy swears she's killing herself slowly, and it pains him to see her the way she is. Escort is told in Callie's point of view. We see through her eyes what she does for a living, how she copes, and what she sees Tommy feeling. When the end of the book rolls around we watch Callie, and Tommy enter into a dangerous relationship that may potentially ruin anything they had going for them.

Savage is told from Tommy's point of view. The readers watch as he slips into a depression that is hard to come out of. He watches as Callie basically kills herself over her job, and tries to convince her otherwise that she shouldn't do what she's doing. It was interesting to read Tommy's point of view. The readers were able to witness his feelings grow from when they first met to the moment he knows that he has to be with Callie. Do they end with their happily ever being each other?

Traitor leaves off where Savage left off. The fact that Kate kept the reader so well in touch with the other two books that there was no question in the matter when it came to this book in the series. The past has come back to get them. And when things start looking gloom for our new lovebirds, there is no doubt that the reader is on the edge of their seats. The twists, turns, plot "holes", and the HOT sex that happens between these two in Traitor was just - wow. I definitely recommend this series, and think that any reader would appreciate the story behind these two.

Kate Benson wrote a wonderful series in the Callie Leveaux Series. The fact that she introduced the series with not much being known of Callie, and Tommy was very well written. She didn't leave the reader guessing in the first two books, and she kept the reader intrigued in her books. The only reason I am giving this book a 4 Bar review is because there were a few moments that I did lose some interest in the book. Nothing negative to say about Kate's writing though!

I grew up in Texas and moved to Florida when I met the love of my life 14 years ago. I wrote my first poem when I was five and it was about my love affair with pickles. I still love pickles but I like to think my writing has grown since then. 

I absolutely adore anything to do with books whether it's writing them or devouring them in one sitting. I live on music, love, and sweet tea. I am known for my silly but blunt personality. I've been lucky enough to find the love of my life, marry him and now we're working on our happily ever after. 

He inspires me in everything I do, but especially in telling love stories. I'm an ordinary girl living an extraordinary love and I'm so happy I get to share it with the world through my writing.
