Book Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

After leaving readers on the edge of their seats in the conclusion of Forgiving Lies (2013), McAdams continues Kash and Rachel’s story here. Rachel is moving past the harrowing events that occurred in Texas and adjusting to her new life in Florida. She is learning to love Kash’s family and is ready for their wedding, but she can’t help but be saddened by the absence of her parents. Just as everything starts to settle into place for Kash and Rachel, their world is ripped apart when Rachel is kidnapped in an act of revenge from the time Kash spent undercover in the gang unit. The demands of the kidnappers are set, but Kash knows they can’t be met. The clock is ticking, and Kash must find Rachel before she is taken away from him forever. This sequel is a passionate, sometimes violent story about two people trying to find their way back to each other. With its unexpected heroes and likable secondary characters, it will please McAdams’ fans. --Patricia Smith

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable March 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I knew I wanted to read Deceiving Lies after Forgiving Lies ended with that cliffhanger. I haven't read any of the author's previous books, but I was willing to give this series a chance. There was a bit of a twist in this book that I thought I would not enjoy, and I really can't believe that the author went there. But she did, and things turned out okay in the end. Although, I must admit to having the same mixed feelings about this book that I did with the first book.

Kash is still the same swoony hero, just waiting to swoop in and save the day. That's his specialty, and he does it so well. Especially when he has the help of his trusty sidekick, Mason. I loved Kash's devotion to Rachel throughout the book, and his unwavering faith that she would return to him. I never doubted that he would do anything to get Rachel back.

Rachel is trying to be strong and keep her s*** together. I could understand how her situation directly affected her actions, and I really felt bad for her. I thought she lost some of her spunk while she was being held, and I think being away from Kash really affected her decision making. That's not to say her feelings for Kash lessened. If anything, her love and devotion to Kash increased, because she never doubted that he would rescue her.

I was pretty satisfied with Kash and Rachel's story in Forgiving Lies, and I would have been happy with just the one book. I don't feel that Deceiving Lies added anything to their relationship, but rather added more drama and heartache to an already slightly unstable foundation. You could say that they come out of Deceiving Lies more committed than ever, but I'd like to think that they would have gotten there on their own, without any outside interference.

5.0 out of 5 stars DECEIVING LIES March 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I’m really torn writing this review. I just finished reading this book. I wasn’t expecting the story to go as it did. That is what I love about Molly McAdams. She doesn’t write the expected, she writes outside the box. She is one of the only authors I know that can rip your heart out with her words and have you still want more.

I was so scared to start this one, I was dreading the (Molly) as I call it. You know, what she did in Taking Chances. Thankfully that did not happen, but the emotional roller coaster was there and it was one hell of a ride.

Kash is of course, Kash. Sweet, dominating but my heart was breaking for him. I wanted to jump into my Kindle and give him a big hug. At about 75% in, I was torn. I felt the same as him to an extent, but I hated how he was dealing with the situation. He redeemed himself in the end and I am still in love with him, maybe even a little more now.

Rachel, WOW! That girl can deal with some real crap. What happened to her, and how she dealt with it was amazing. Even though at one point I wanted to strangle her, I understood why she was doing it. This book really makes you look at heroines differently. Molly writes such strong female characters and puts them in the worst situations. But, they come out fighting and it says a lot to women out there.

The plot was once again a shocker. I did not anticipate it going that way, at all. That’s why I love her books. It was fresh, kept me on the edge of my seat and never a dull moment. I’m sad to see an end of Kash and Rachel, but I hope to see Mason get his own book.

I’m giving this book 5 Stars! ~Jen

3.0 out of 5 stars Where is the Deceiving part? March 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book unfortunately didn't live up to my Molly McAdams standards. For me it definitely fell flat in the emotional department and it seemed like the same book as Forgiving Lies but with less drama and action. I mean how many times can one woman get kidnapped!!?

Rachel is just getting over being kidnapped and tortured by Black and starting fresh in Florida with Kash when the most horrible thing she could imagine happened again. Rachel is kidnapped by the gang that Kash had infiltrated and are now keeping her until he gets their bosses out of jail. Kash goes crazy looking for her but in unable to find her anywhere. How long will she last without him saving her or a better question, how long can he last without her?
Rachel is kept by Trent(Taylor) in a room unharmed. But when you are kept in a room with someone for too long and start to learn about them, no matter how "bad" you think that person is, feelings start to become a factor. Rachel is confused about what is happening and still hopes that Kash will rescue her soon, but she can't help but have a little shiver and some goosebumps when Trent looks at her.

I think that Molly could have ended this series with one book and a novella or Epilogue would have been good for the story. There was just so many things that seemed the same in this book as the first. I am still interested to read about Mason and Trent but I lacked any pull for this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars love March 4, 2014
By Keisha
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
loved this book. Molly never disappoints. I loved Deceiving Lies more than Forgiving Lies. It was more suspenseful kept me wanting to read it and never wanting to put it down.
I know I should have probably disliked him but I loved Trent aka Taylor. He wanted to save her and hated his life in the gang Rachel's lucky he was there and was looking out for her. The shower scene with him though..funny. Not going to lie but I thought Molly would send us on another love triangle book when I was reading about Trent. and I'm glad he got away from the gang life in the end and was still sending Rachel nail polish and a journal.
I still love Kash his character is perfect. I'm glad He never gave up looking for her but really if it happened to you you probably wouldn't give up either.
Naked baby! I laughed so much at those parts I'm sure most of us mom's can relate to that. and big ol daddy kash chasing after her pretty funny. I'm glad it was a happening ending and that they all became one big Ryan family.

More About the Author

Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
