Previously published as the Run to You serial parts 1-3—Part I: First Sight; Part II: Second Glance; Part III: Third Charm. Deception So Deadly is the complete first novel in the two-book Run to You series, a riveting romantic thriller about a family on the run from a deadly past and a first love that will transcend secrets, lies and danger… Sarah Spencer has a secret: her real name is Tessa Carson, and to stay alive, she can tell no one the truth about her psychically gifted family and the danger they are running from. As the new girl in the latest of countless schools, she also runs from her attraction to Tristan Walker—after all, she can't even tell him her real name. But Tristan won't be put off by a few secrets. Not even dangerous ones that might rip Tessa from his arms before they even kiss… Run to You is Tessa and Tristan's story—two full-length books about psychic gifts, secret lives and dangerous loves. Danger. Deception. Betrayal. It must be true love.

Sarah Spencer's family shares a huge secret: most of them have some kind of psychic ability and are on the run from those who will stop at nothing to silence them. Another secret is Sarah's real name is Tessa Carson and unlike her parents and siblings she doesn't share a psychic gift. She only remembers Dennis Connelly, their pursuer's first attempt to kill her. She'll do anything to save her family. Then she encounters Tristan Walker, a cute guy at her new school and finds that being invisible is not as easy as before. And Tristan won't stop until she lets him into his confidence.

What worked: I really enjoyed this engaging paranormal romance of a family on the run from those who want to kill them. Tessa has been used to being the 'odd' one out as she doesn't have a psychic gift. She's also used to making herself invisible to those around her as she knows it's not if but when they have to move again. It's easier and hurts less this way. Her fear of being discovered and killed this time around is very plausible and only verifies her faulty thinking that not getting involved with anyone will mean that person wouldn't be hurt too.

Tristan is the cute guy that tries to gain her confidence. Tessa does everything she knows to not let his charm break down her wall of indifference. I liked the emotional exchanges between these two. I wanted Tessa to finally have some kind of relationship. Tristan seems at the beginning to be good for her. He's totally swoon worthy.

But this story is not all it seems to be. There are more than a few betrayals, lies, and twists of fate. When Tessa does in fact find out the truth about her family and herself? It turns everything she's known and believed on it's tail.

The only thing I wanted though was to find out what happens to all of them as the ending is more of a cliffhanger that will leave readers with more questions. Good thing the next book is available. Can't wait to read!

Engaging paranormal romance where betrayals and lies are at every turn. The bubbling romance between Tristan and Tessa starts out slowly and then concludes with a moment of trust. Who can believe who? And how far would you go to save the ones you love?
Good Points
1. Engaging paranormal romance
2. Psychic family on the run from those who mean to do them harm
