Product Description

Product Description

This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, sexually explicit content and graphic violence.

PLEASE read Covered in Coal prior to reading Lies Beneath the Surface. Lies Beneath the Surface is NOT a cliffhanger.

Carly Jo Simon carries the weight of the world on her shoulders.

When she unearthed her daddy’s secrets, she had no idea the repercussions she would be faced to live with. Now, his secrets are her own to carry, as she fights to protect her sister Savannah from their daddy’s daunting past and their bastard brother Drew.
Savannah wears a mask of perfection, shielding everyone from the reality of her personal imprisonment. When Savannah’s secrets are exposed, Carly stands by her, hand in hand, offering Savannah the comfort and strength she needs to move on.

Despite carrying the weight of other’s secrets on her back, Carly’s own secrets burden her deeply. Although she battled to keep her heart safely guarded from Colton Weston, he owns every inch of her. But when Carly turned her back on Colton and opened her arms to her best friend Luke, she made a mistake that could shatter all three of their lives.

They all have something to hide. But it’s the secrets that lie beneath the surface that could destroy them all.


Lies Beneath the Surface (Buried Secrets #2) is set in the coal fields of Eastern Kentucky. The dialect used throughout this book is true Eastern Kentucky dialect. We drop our g’s, we say ya, instead of you, and a coal MINE, is a Coal MINES…please remember this when you are reading. It is NOT grammatical errors, it’s simply the dialect of the characters shining through, speaking as true Eastern Kentuckians.

~this is a Spoiler FREE Review~

“Everyone covers up their ugliness with a mask. It's the secrets that lie beneath the surface that you have to worry about.”

Everyone has something to hide; setting their secrets free could take the weight of the world off their shoulders, but it could also destroy everyone in it's path.
When Carly Jo returned home to see her dad on his death bed, she never knew just how much her life would change. She now runs his coal company dealing with a saboteur, and she unearthed a trunk full of secrets hidden in his closet, she discovered a bastard brother they never knew existed and she's desperately trying to keep his secrets buried to protect her sister Savannah. As if carrying all this around with her isn't enough, she also came face to face with the man who destroyed her soul eight years ago and made it his mission to get her back. She tried to fight it, but Colton Weston has always owned her; when she walked away from him at the worst time possible and turned to her best friend Luke, she set into motion a chain of events that could destroy all three of them.
Savannah may seem like she has the perfect life, but it is a lie hidden behind the perfect mask she wears every single day; until one person breaks through, forcing her to confide in her sister. Carly Jo stands by her sister, and will do whatever she can for her, but will their combined strength be enough to survive the fallout when their secrets are revealed?

~You ain't seen redneck crazy 'til you've seen Colton frickin' Weston completely unhinged.~

This is gonna be a really short review.

Favorite Quotes:

“Carly, I swear I don’t know where you find these devilishly sexy men, but if I ever leave Josh, I’ll be raiding your man candy dish.”

“Just tryin’ to ease your nerves you filthy minded freak. Get on the table and wait for the doctor like a good girl.”

“You can mask your fears and try to bury the pain, but it’s what lies beneath the surface that holds the truth.”

My Review:

I almost always struggle when reading a series, especially when there has been a considerable time lag between installments. I typically start off feeling a bit lost as I have either forgotten or confused most of the secondary characters, as well as many of the salient details about the story. So it took me a few chapters to find my sea legs with this book, as the beginning of the story had me truly muddled. When I finally started making connections and settling in, the story took off like a rocket and I was holding onto my precious kindle for dear life. We find there are many deep and hideous secrets that go all the way around and circle several times to surround this small yet intense group of people. There is a bit of everything in the mix, humor, suspense, illness, pregnancy, sass, drama, angst, tears – someone is always crying their eyes out – tenderness, abuse, brawling, heartache, and oh yes… deliciously steamy sensual scenes. It was a long and involved story, and I enjoyed several nights of sleeplessness and subsequent book hang-overs – so worth it! Ms. Webb has concocted a well plotted and intriguing story that I don’t think I could ever tire of. She is devious in sprinkling details about and parceling out its-and-bits of information to keep me involved in the story, and unable to put my kindle down. She is a wicked woman, even though my eyes are red and my head is sore and wooly, I am already feeling restless and tapping my foot while waiting for her next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Story! 3 September 2014
By Kaylee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First off I just want to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series! LBTS picks up right where CIC ended. We all know that CIC ended with a huge and I mean HUGE cliffhanger. (Which by the way I totally hated, I remember sending Silla a message asking when book 2 was going to be out). We all wanted to know WHO IS THE DADDY! Of course I wanted it to be Colton I mean come on he is Colton. And Heidi-Jo would just love that! But honestly I had no clue who the daddy was. I wasn't a big Luke fan in CIC so that was another reason I wanted Colton to be the daddy. But I can say that after reading LBTS I am a HUGE Luke fan and he might just be up there with Colton now!

So in LBTS you go thur the whole 9 months that Carly-Jo is pregnant! Which by the way is a huge emotional roller coaster. Like I am not even kidding when I say your emotions one minute, your smiling and happy and then the next your are just crying like a baby. Then you have chapters where you are just pretty much crying the whole time. Like it broke my heart, reading some of it. Oh and then there are moments where you just want to scream. But at the same time you can't help but love all of these characters in this series. (well almost all -2 of them)

There are so many turns in this story that you never see coming. Lies that come to the Surface that you are like Holy S*** I so didn't see that. So with that being said my review will stop here because if I keep going I feel like I am going to give away some big secrets! And that is just a big NO NO!

I am so very proud of Silla! She did an AMAZING job with this story! I just couldn't seem to put it down, every chapter pulled me in more and more! <3

5.0 out of 5 stars So emotional! I need more tissues! 4 September 2014
By Tabby (Tantalizing Reviews) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
First of all I just want to say...It's about freaking time! LOL. I have been waiting impatiently for Lies Beneath The Surface to be release. I had to know the answers to the questions that Silla left us with at the end of Covered in Coal. With that brutal cliffhanger that left us all wondering...WHO'S THE DADDY?!

Lies Beneath the Surface is a non-stop emotional roller coaster taking us on the journey through Carly-Jo's pregnant. One minute I was happy and smiling the next I was a blubbering mess and I had a hard time distinguishing who was having pregnancy emotions me or Carly-Jo...LOL!

I cried, laughed, cringed and held my breath so many times while reading LBTS. I yelled, " Get your poop together!" Quite a few times while reading. I loved these characters...minus 2 but you will see why.

We also get Carly's sister POV and let me tell you Savannah's story tore me apart. At the same time her story proved one thing... women are strong, resilient and independent and we can overcome the worst situations.

Lies Beneath the Surface is emotional, suspense filled and mind blowing.

In Lies Beneath the Surface we learn some more secrets and are left with more questions which undoubtedly will be answered in the books that follow. Okay, now before you freak out there is no cliffhanger. So breathe easy.

In the end this is a must read, heart-stopping, mind-altering, emotional journey that I can't wait to continue.

Received complementary copy from author in exchange for an honest, no spoiler review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Silla Webb Blew Me Away! 3 September 2014
By Amy Rogers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
First of all I have to start off by saying that Silla is absolutely brilliant! After leaving us wondering at the end of Covered in Coal Lies Beneath the Surface answers all of your questions. From the moment I opened the book she immediately captured my heart and pulled feelings out of me making me cry immediately! And it didn't stop throughout the book! She made me love characters even more and on the flip side despise others even more. You learn things about some of them that you had no clue about. I was shocked and wanted to jump in the book and take care of the nastiness myself. I was happy, sad, outraged, elated, heart broken, crushed, I could continue on and on with words to describe how I felt because I felt them all in this book. Silla has grown so much as a author that it is astounding. I'm so proud to have been part of this journey. It's been a couple of days since I've read this book and my mind is still on them! I couldn't get enough of this book! I didn't want it to end I just wanted to keep reading more and more about the story. I can not wait for the next book to come out! I'm already pining away for it! Congratulations Silla on another amazing story!

5.0 out of 5 stars ~~ 5 "Questions Answered" Stars ~~ 5 September 2014
By Jennifer H. ~ Book B!tches Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Talk about a roller coaster of emotions, angst, drama, love and suspense. This book has it all and it doesn't stop until the end. Lies Beneath the Surface is the second book in the Buried Secrets Series by Silla Webb. This book is a continuation of Covered in Coal and is to be read ONLY AFTER you read book 1. This is NOT a standalone book.

I will warn you that I don't plan on talking about the storyline too much because pretty much anything that I would say would be a HUGE spoiler!!!! This book does start up right where Covered in Coal ended. This book will definitely pull at your heartstrings and also test your patience. We were left with a TON of questions after Covered in Coal and rest assured….you are given the answers in this book. This book/series is all about the secrets people hide over time and how they can come back and bite you in the butt in the long run. I loved that this book was so unpredictable. There were some things that I saw coming but I have to say that Silla Webb kept me guessing throughout the majority of this book.

I am having such a hard time writing this review because I don't want to give anything away. I will say that I truly enjoy Silla's writing style. I loved that she captures the true feeling of being in Kentucky by using the grammar and dialect that is used in the south. I thought this book was wonderfully written. We got multiple POV's in this story. I thought it was great to see what Colton, Carly Jo, and Savannah (Carly Jo's sister) thought and felt. We learned so much more about Savannah in this book, my heart broke so many times for her and her situation. My only complaint with this book was that by having this as a multiple POV book, we got some repetitive stuff. There were situations that were repeated by different characters that I thought could've been left out so that the flow of the story wasn't slowed down. Obviously that didn't deter from my complete enjoyment of this book.

I'm wrapping up my review by just saying READ THIS BOOK/SERIES!!! You won't be sorry. Just an FYI….this book does NOT end on a cliffhanger. We are given a complete story. I did see at the end that there will be two more books to this series and I am excited to see who they will be about. I have my suspicions, but I guess I'll have to wait and see ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Silla!! 13 October 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the best books I read in a very long time.

Colton, Carly Jo, Luke and Savannah are all back in the next book in the series. Of coarse everyone's favorite little girl, Heidi Jo is as sassy as ever.

Carly Jo and Colton have just learned she is pregos. And at first Colton is a very happy man, sure he thinks the baby is his, but wait... Carly Jo has some news to share, and it will totally destroy his world.

Can the love Carly Jo and Colton have get them through this storm??

The pain Carly Jo has inflicted in Colton's world is one he never thought could happen. One he had inflicted Carly Jo with so many years ago. Can he forgive her the way she has forgiven him?

Now with Luke being a possible father to Carl Jo's baby, how will their friendship be effected?

Man Silla has all kinds of awesome drama going on here. I could not put this down!! I was so sucked into my kindle from the moment I opened this book.

And let's not forget Carly Jo's big sister Savannah. The life this woman has been living has been nothing short of her own personal hell. How? How did Carly Jo not see this sooner?? The ever empathetic Luke was the first to see the cracks in Savannah's mask. Luke always seems to see through the mask people wear, and what he sees behind Savannah's infuriates him.

The love this family has for each other and the ends they will go to, to protect one another is wonderful. I was so happy to see the for now happy ending.

Silla has a way of keeping you hooked and anxious to turn the page and see where these characters will go next.

So excited to know this is not the end of their story, we can expect 2 more books in this series!!!
