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 Rachel, especially if "all" includes having a football team of babies with his future wife. In his line of work, Kash knows how short life can be and doesn't want to waste another minute of their life together. 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, Trent will turn his back on the only life he's known—and risk everything if it means getting her out alive.

What I Loved: I felt like Rachel and Kash really grew up in this book. For some reason, I just thought they were so naive and immature in Forgiving Lies, even though they, especially Rachel, were dealing with big issues. It wasn’t so much what they did, it was just, being in their heads grated on my nerves a bit. Here, it was a totally different experience and I felt like I was reading about two totally different characters. McAdams books are usually a “3 star” TOPS kind of read for me. As much as I try to love her characters and her writing, I end up lukewarmly liking them. But something about this book kept me glued to the pages and really invested in Rachel and Kash. I also really liked Trent and how he fit into the mix. There were definitely a lot of emotional scenes and lines in this book that tugged at me, and I don’t know if it’s the hormones or not, but that definitely doesn’t happen to me often.

Left Me Wanting More: I was kind of hoping for more on the Trent angle. Yes, I knew nothing could’ve come of it and his fate wasn’t going to be bright no matter what, but still. I was kind of rooting for him.

Final Verdict: After reading the first book, I seriously didn’t think these characters needed a second one, but I’m so happy that McAdams did it. I enjoyed this so much more than the first and I honestly could’ve gone without reading the first book because this felt like a totally different story and I loved that about it.

I like the covers for this series a lot and it's not just because of the guy's lip ring. Not really.

DECEIVING LIES, the sequel to FORGIVING LIES, isn't your average run of the mill "break up" book and I actually enjoyed it more than the first one. Told from alternating POVs, it still has it's issues, just like Rachel and Kash, (the excessive exclamation points are still distracting), but the characters themselves were much more interesting. (I want a Trip of my own now.)

FORGIVING LIES ended with a cliff hanger, one I thought was pretty clever on Molly McAdams part, and I expected that to be the starting point in this book, but it wasn't. Instead, it starts out a little before the end of book one, filling in scenes we as the reader aren't privy to and setting the stage for a roller coaster ride of action, suspense and severed body parts.

Yeah, you read that last part right.

The inclusion of Trent's character rocks the "Kash + Sour Patch Forever" love boat and leaves them both with questions about their future. Maybe, despite all they've already been through, and all that they continue to go through, they don't really want the same things after all.

Maybe pancakes aren't really their thing.

Maybe they are.

Maybe you'll just have to read it to find out for yourself. And those aforementioned severed body parts. You know you're curious. ;)

The epilogue ties up any lose ends and the sneak peak of CAPTURING PEACE gives a hint of what's coming next from McAdams. Fans will not be disappointed!
