Love, Lies, and Deception by L.P. Dover
What do you do when the one person you thought you knew turns out to be the one you knew the least?
Twenty-three year old Marissa Chase, and soon to be college graduate, has everything going for her: wonderful friends, a lucrative degree, and a chance to explore the world. What made it even better – or so she thought – was when her path crossed with the alluring Alec Holden. Unable to stay away from him, Marissa experiences a love like no other, and falls into his world of passion and intrigue. However, things begin to shift when this path takes a deadly turn.
Her trust is put to the test when hidden dangers unfold before her, revealing secrets that have been buried for years. Secrets that were meant to stay hidden. Murder, lies, and betrayal … will Marissa figure it all out in time and escape with her life intact, or will she be too late and fall into the trap of deception?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book combined some of my favorite things... new love, hot sex, and suspenseful action. There was no way I could put this book down, hence my need for a nap today.
After ending a long distance relationship, Marrisa is ready to have fun again. Then she literally runs into her sexy neighbor,Alec just as she is leaving for spring break with her roommate, her roommate's boyfriend, and Marissa's best friend, who happens to be male.
Needless to say, sparks fly between them when she gets home. Unfortunately, Alec has a past that he is NOT proud of. He's made a lot of changes in his life and is a totally different man. He knows he needs to tell her about it and agrees to share his past, after they have dated for a couple weeks. They get over that little hump without many issues, but something from his past does try to come between them.
There's an incident in a bar, a murdered girl, notes from a mysterious person from Alec's past, a kidnapping, and of course, the attempted rescuing of the kidnap victim. All that action made me just want to keep reading more. I couldn't put this book down and paid the price the next day, but it was well worth it.
