The irresistible, blazing-hot sequel to New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams’s Forgiving Lies.

Rachel is supposed to be planning her wedding to Kash, the love of her life. After the crazy year they’ve had, she’s ready to settle down and live a completely normal life. Well, as normal as it can be. But there’s something else waiting—something threatening to tear them apart.

Kash is ready for it all with Rach. Especially if all includes having a football team of babies with his future wife. With his line of work, he knows how short life can be, and doesn’t want to waste another minute of theirs. But now his past as an undercover narcotics agent has come back to haunt him … and it’s the girl he loves who’s caught in the middle.

Trent Cruz’s orders are clear: take the girl. But there’s something about this girl that has him changing the rules and playing a dangerous game to keep her safe. When his time as Rachel’s protector runs out, he will turn his back on the only life he’s known, and risk everything, if it means getting her out alive.

Quick & Dirty: Heart pounding thriller that leaves you breathless and full of emotion. I can’t stress enough how much I love Molly McAdams and this story is her at the top of her game!!!!

Opening Sentence: I nervously flipped my long hair over my shoulders and smoothed my hands down my shirt a few times as I took deep breaths in and out.


The Review:

Rachel survived a serial killer and she has finally found her way back to Kash, the love of her life. They are getting married in just a few short weeks and she couldn’t be happier. You would think that they have been through enough heartache a terror to last them a lifetime, but the worst is still to come.

Kash can’t believe that he has Rachel back in his life. He thought that he had destroyed any chance he had with her when he wasn’t a hundred percent honest with her about who he was and what he did for a living. Working as an undercover cop is very dangerous and Kash has collected a lot of enemies, but he never thought that the girl he loved would pay the price.

One dreadful night men come and take Rachel away. Kash will do anything to find her and he won’t stop until she is safe in his arms once again. Rachel is terrified, but her captor has somehow become her protector. She feels a bond with him that confuses her and she’s not sure who is the enemy and who to her ally!

Rachel is one of those girls you can’t help but love. She has a feisty attitude that goes on for miles. She can take all of Kash’s crap, but she also knows how to dish it out as well. Her journey has been very emotional. She lost both of her parents when she was in high school in a terrible accident. Then there was the whole serial killer business (that I’m not going to go into detail about because I don’t want to spoil the first book!). Even with all these obstacles, she hasn’t let them break her. Yes, she has a hard time and is still dealing with nightmares but she is still so strong. It was impossible not to respect Rachel and really sympathize with her. You would think that after everything she has been through she would get a break, but that’s not the case. She has one more obstacle she has to overcome and while it was heartbreaking to read about it, I loved the person she became because of it. Rachel is an amazing heroine that I loved and I am so glad I got to read her story.

Kash is just as sexy as ever. He is a man that knows how to get what he wants and if you are lucky enough to be a part of his life you should consider yourself lucky. His line of work hasn’t allowed him to let many people close to him because it is demanding and dangerous. When Rachel is taken I was introduced to a new side of Kash that I never saw before. You get to see what lengths he will go through to get her back and not everything he does is pretty. His devotion to Rachel never wavers and as a reader I fell even more in love with him.

Trent was the man charged with taking Rachel and holy cow, I think he was my favorite part of the entire story. He has been part of a gang for most of his life, but it was never what he wanted. Even though he has done terrible things to survive, deep down he is a good person. He didn’t have a choice when it came to taking Rachel, but he has done everything in his power to make sure that no physical harm comes to her while she is his captive. He is a very layered person and I loved everything about him.

Deceiving Lies was full of action, suspense, sexy times, and emotion. From the first page you are sucked in and it is one of those books that are just impossible to put down. I loved that the story was told from multiple perspectives, it helped me to understand and connect with all of the characters better. There’s not as much humor in this one as there was in the first book but there were still a few moments that had me cracking up. I love McAdams’ writing. Her stories are always entertaining and so much fun to read. I believe that this is the end of Rachel and Kash’s story, but there are companion novels for some of my favorite secondary characters in the works which makes me very happy. I will gladly read anything McAdams writes and I know that I will love it. I would highly recommend this series to anyone that loves a good thriller with lots of sexy times and humor!!!

Notable Scene:

“And why would I be in shock?” My heart started racing as Ramirez started hitting the OPEN DOORS button.

Ramirez shot us a strained, sympathetic look before ushering us out to the underground parking lot. “You weren’t informed?”

“Of what?” I was supposed to be in shock. So it had something to do with me. Everyone close to me starting flipping through my mind until a sinking feeling hit my chest and stomach. Oh God…Rachel. “What happened?”

“I’m sorry, I thought someone already told you, you were supposed to be informed already,” he mumbled to himself as he kept walking toward the lot. “Look I’m sorry I’m the one that has to tell you this.” He stopped walking abruptly and turned to look at me. His expression was one I had seen so many times, and had even had to use myself. It felt like time slowed as I waited for him to tell me one of fifty scenarios that were speeding through my mind. “A call came in to dispatch about an hour ago. It was your fiancée, Ryan. The only thing that came from her end of the call was her saying her name, someone had broken in—“
