Book Description

Lie by Night by Cathy Marlowe
When Emma Bailey’s brother disappears, leaving her in possession of dangerous information, there’s no one she can turn to for help. Her desperate search for her brother leads her to a remote island where she discovers the one man who can help her is a man she can’t trust.

Cole Stevens is on a mission to bring down the drug mastermind who threatens to destroy the lives of his family. His plans take an unexpected turn when Emma runs head first into his investigation. Not only is she a danger to his heart, but her brother is one of his key suspects.

Cole and Emma reluctantly join forces to unravel a web of deceit that reaches deeper into their lives than either had imagined. As the lies unravel they will be forced to choose between fear of betrayal and their willingness to put their emotions on the line in order to save the people they love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lie by Night Review March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This romantic suspense keeps the reader on the edge of their seat from beginning to end. Emma Bailey’s search for her missing brother leads to an island where the one man who can help is the man she can’t trust. Cole Stevens is on a mission t take down a drug mastermind and his plans take an unexpected turn when Emma runs headfirst into his investigation. As the web of deceit unravels they will be forced to choose between fear of betrayal and their willingness to put their emotions on the line in order to save the ones they care for.

This fast paced plot keeps readers shivering with anticipation as the story progresses and the web gets thicker and more secrets and lies revealed. The author spins her story with vivid imagery and details that capture the imagination and makes the reader feel as they are part of the story. The characters are strong and compelling drawing the reader deeper into the drama as it unfolds.

The attraction between Emma and Cole burns steadily hotter as the story progresses with some hot & steamy sex scenes but the relationship is hampered by secrets and not knowing who they can trust. It’s easy for the reader to relate to each character and understand their side of things when the author conveys their personalities and emotions so clearly. Emma impresses the reader with her courage and ingenuity in the situation she finds herself involved in and Cole’s loyalty to those he cares for and his determination to bring the bad guy down makes him such an attractive and endearing hero.

I really enjoyed this mesmerizing story and the captivating characters although the story keeps referring to a past event that led to this one and I would really like to have read the entire story, maybe the author can go back and write a prequel, of course I would like to know more about some of the other characters too, so I’m not sure which I would rather her write first…hmmm.

4.0 out of 5 stars How Important is Family to You??? March 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars

This was my first Cathy Marlowe book and it won't be my last. I LOVE entangled publishing authors.

I will not bore you with the whole plot of the book, for that you can read the synopsis and I will not leave any spoilers.

Emma Bailey loves her brother, will do anything for him, so when he sends her something and asks her to take care of it until he can get there to retrieve it that's just what she does. However, when he fails to show up she decides to head out and found him. Of course, its never as simple as that.

Cole is on a mission of his own and of course it includes Bailey's brother (unbeknownst to her). He befriends Jacob under false pretenses which of course leads to a huge misunderstanding between Cole and Emma.

These characters (including secondary characters) are awesome. The story is filled with a little bit of everything including drugs, violence, murder, and sex.

The chemistry between Cole and Emma rocks!!! Of course, the arguments are just as hot as the chemistry. Neither trusts the other, but they must work together to right the wrongs. I will say there were times that I was so frustrated with both of them that I just wanted to scream...REALLY guys!!!

Do we really know whose who....I think not! If you love thrills, chills, unexpected twists and turns, frustration, intrigue, really great characters, and some did that just happen moments than you must read this book.

I was given this ARC by NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review. I'd like to thank the publisher (whom I love) for introducing me to yet another great author. Thank you Cathy for taking me on a journey that I won't soon forget with characters that I will remember forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best kind of suspenseful romance March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is definitely a fun and suspenseful read. The book is fast-paced and it's hard to put down! The main characters have interesting backgrounds and really great interactions. This book reminded me some of Suzanne Brockmann's books (which I love). They have the same type of thrill, character development, and exciting storylines. Marlowe does set herself apart though in a way you'll find out.

The only complaint is that I wanted it to be longer!

"Six months ago hadn’t been their time.
Now was not their time.
Perhaps their time would never come.
That didn’t stop him from wanting it to…"

When Emma Bailey’s search for her missing brother literally lands her in the arms of Cole Turner, the man who betrayed her and her brother six months earlier, she has no choice but to turn to him for help, even though she knows she can’t trust him, or her heart.

Cole Stevens thought he had met “the one” in Emma Bailey six months ago, but when Emma catches Cole with her brother’s girlfriend in his hotel room, he knows he’s ruined any chance with her he thought he had. When fate lands her in his arms again, right in the middle of his current investigation, he can’t fight the attraction he feels towards her, but he knows he can’t trust her, or his heart.

This was such a fabulous read! I’m a big fan of romantic suspense, and this story had just the right mix of everything I like – a sexy hero, a strong and sassy heroine, lots of action, tons of tension, steam and heat between the H/h, some good snarky banter, and a plot that kept me turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next. I love when a story keeps me guessing until the end, and this book kept me doing just that!

This was such a well written book that left me wanting more – more of the backstory on Cole and the people he works with, more about Emma’s brother Jacob, and lots more of sexy Cole! Cathy Marlowe has produced one fabulous debut novel and I can’t wait to read more in this Out of Darkness series!

I received a copy of this book from the Publisher for an honest review.

More About the Author

Hello! I live in Missouri with my husband and a huge chocolate lab who tortures my spouse by plucking and eating his heirloom tomatoes just as they ripen! I have three great children. My daughter is a thoughtful reader of my early drafts, and my boys...well, they keep promising to read my books.

The Out of Darkness Series consists of sexy thrillers that explore what it means to trust someone when a master of deceit has woven a tapestry of lies and manipulation almost impossible to overcome. When I read, I like thrillers that keep you turning pages late into the night, while providing some humor amidst tension and angst as the hero and heroine trust their hearts to overcome obstacles.

I enjoy dark chocolate mint M&Ms accompanied by a steaming mug of coffee, like the theory of exercise more than the reality, and believe each person has the power to change the world.

I hope you love the Out of Darkness books and thank you for reading!
