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.
Deceiving Lies picks up where we are left hanging at the end of Forgiving Lies. I may not have mentioned the cliff hanger in my other review and I didn’t because while I know I at times am vocal about hating cliffhangers so much but that’s because we have to wait for the next book, well Deceiving Lies is available so we will call it one of those forgivable lies I was talking about.
Kash’s past has caught up with him and Rachel is the one who is paying for it. Not knowing what is going on or why she was targeted makes it so much harder on her. Even though she is not alone, has someone to watch out for her, she knows that things may never again be the same. I was honestly surprised at how well she handled herself during this time, I would have been a million times worse but it shows growth on her part and that made me love her character even more. Were there times that I rolled my eyes at her, yes there was but let’s be honest when don’t we as readers have our own opinions on the characters and how we would do something different.
Kash had me very very disappointed in him at a couple of points. He couldn’t open his eyes and see what his actions or inactions were doing to Rachel and I didn’t think he would ever realize just how much Rachel does love him. I wanted to smack him upside the back of the head and scream don’t be an idiot!
One thing I hated is that the best friend is back in the picture, but luckily for me at least she isn’t in it like the first book. I am sorry Ms. McAdams but I just can’t stand her, never will. She needs to fall from the top of a cheer pyramid…
Anyways I am moving on. I think for me Deceiving Lies was overall more emotional than Forgiving Lies was. I will also admit that I loved it more than Forgiving Lies. I know that Kash and Rachel’s story is wrapped up here but I do hope that we see more of them in the future in other books.
