I found Jackson somewhat selfish, domineering and overbearing at times. Even though he has been hurt by people he loved, his behaviour was cruel for the most part.
Skylar was too submissive, even though I know it was fueled by guilt. Chris, I just didn't like him at all, he was too controlling. With that being said, I am anxious to see how this saga turns out. On to the next book in the series.
Skylar is a successful business owner who has secrets from her past stride right in her front door.
This couldn’t have come at a worst time. She has others things in her life that need to be tied up and started. However, when the chance comes to take back her heart she can’t say no. Skylar is a strong and proud woman who has done well under the heartache of her past.
Jackson thought he left the lies and betrayal in the past, however, his grandfather pulls some of the biggest one right to his front door. As a football player he knows how to make the hard calls be this one would change his life forever. Jackson is a sweet man that won’t give his heart to anyone. He thinks he is protecting his heart, but he is only hiding and waiting for his true love to come back to him.
The story is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. You never know what might happen. Jackson and Skylar have a hard road ahead of them and I’m not sure they will be able to make it to the end. I hope in the next book all the secrets will be revealed. The story leaves off in a good spot. I don’t want to say a cliffhanger but you are left wondering what will happen next.
The only part I had trouble with is the first sex scene, I don’t feel Skylar would give in that easy nor Jackson. I thought it would have been a fight to see them both in the same sack. However, that wasn’t the case and I felt a little disappointed. But that is only my opinion others might like this.
I recommend you give this story a shot it is well worth the read.

Author: Samyah Leighton
Genre: Erotic Romance
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 JBI Stars
Your past and lies, the two things that always have a way of catching up to you.
Deceived is about all of that and more. Prepare for an emotional roller coaster ride of epic proportions.. This book hand delivers the feels big time. It’s complete with suspense, romance, heartbreak, betrayal, beauty and even a good dose of shock and awe. I laughed till I cried and cried till I laughed. For that reason alone this book is a must read.
The main characters, Jackson Delaney and Skyler Deveraux, couldn’t have been any more perfect for their parts. They share a past. Lies broke them apart and end up bringing them back into each others lives again. We see the aftermath of certain lies and watch how they attempt to heal and move on through life. However there’s still a lot of questions. What happened in their past that broke Jackson so badly? What did Skyler do to him? I need to know.
Deceived as a whole was very well written. It did take me a little bit to get into the book but once I was a few pages in, I was hooked. From the characters involved, the plot twists, and the storyline, this book was a fantastic read. Would I recommend this to my book friends? Most definitely, without a doubt! Learning that this was also the author's debut book blew me away. Samyah Leighton’s writing grabs the reader's attention early on and keeps you totally engaged till the very end.
Deceived is book one in The Redemption Series. Book two...here I come!
I received an ARC of this book for my HONEST review.

Skyler has moved on from her past with Jackson and is now trying to get divorced from her husband Christopher when Jackson confronts her with their past. As Skyler tries to move forward and find a "neutral" place with Sutton and Jackson she is finally content with what the future holds. But the past just won't let go.
I must admit that when I began the book I had no idea that more were coming and as I was nearing the end I could feel that something bad was going to happen but I knew that there was not going to be enough pages to get everything resolved. Part of me was super frustrated as I really wanted a HEA but I knew I wasn't going to get it!
I enjoyed the book and I liked all of the dynamics but still have no idea what really went down between Jackson and Skyler when they were younger. There are so many questions still that I need answers too! I really liked Sutton and could understand why she was so comfortable with Jackson as opposed to Skylar.
Looking forward to the next book!

OMG was Jackson a class A jerk. He is probably one of my least favorite male leads ever. He's completely stuck in the past and is borderline mentally abusive to Skylar. Read morePublished 4 months ago by DivainAZ
