Blake Vandershire is in a path of vengeance. After learning that Emmett Nowell helped cover up the murder of his mother (at the hands of his father), he decided to get revenge on the man by kidnapping his daughter Daisy Nowell. But what Blake doesn't expect is the heated attraction he feels toward Daisy and the feelings and emotions he starts to feel for her.
I really enjoyed this novel. It was passionate, sexy and very intense. I loved that despite their need to pull away from each other, the strong attraction between them was too much of a pull. I loved Blake and Daisy's chemistry and the fact that Daisy wasn't a simpering damsel in distress. She was strong and sassy and gave as good as she got. I loved her! Like Stranger, Deceiver was also a psychological read but it was also a tad bit more emotional as we saw the resounding effects and wounds his mother's murder had on Blake.
All in all, I really enjoyed DECEIVER and look forward to reading the next book. Bravo! 4 Stars ~ Ratula
Blake was more amazing then he was in the first book. I loved being in his head and seeing his hate towards Daisy's father and him trying to come to terms with his past. He was sweet when he wasn't trying to be, and even with his lies he was a hottie! But I've always been a sucker for a "bad guy".
Daisy was hard to get a read on. I liked her character and how she was strange in her own right. She loved everything Blake dished out and that drew me to her more and more as the story went on. She didn't take crap which I liked. The fact that she never gave up on him was a huge plus in my book.
This book is centered around revenge but a romance developed and it was raw. I was fascinated with the different directions the author took the book. It kept me interested from start to finish. The author brings out the past, that if you read book 1, readers wondered about. The ending makes me anxiously await the next book!
Overall I really enjoyed it. I suggest reading the first book so you have a better sense on what is happening and why Blake is so angry. I can't wait to see what's going to happen in the next book! I'm so glad that Layla is going to get a book, and from the tease at the end of this, it's going to be HOT! 4 stars #2OCCJD
What Blake didn't count on, though, is that Daisy would not only go with him willingly, but that she'd enjoy being with him, because she's as twisted as he is. She gets off on annoying him, poking him, then watching him blow up and f her brains out afterward. Yeah...she's messed up too. But, she's got a brightness to her that Penny didn't have, it helps elevate Deceiver out of some of the bleakness that pervaded Stranger. "Her brightness, her curiosity, this need for fun that is so a part of her it's written in her skin and beating from her heart--it does things to me. It makes me want to take it and make it mine. It may be to relieve her of all her childish antics and tell her that life has nothing to do with the games she insists on playing. I want to destroy it and bathe in it at the same time. I don't want to need her, but something about the way she is and acts--I need it like I need air."
Daisy's funny, provocative and snarky. She's a much stronger character than Penny, which is the main reason why I enjoyed Deceiver much more than I enjoyed Stranger. It certainly isn't because I like Blake, because, just like with Logan, I can't stand Blake. I feel for him, but I don't like him at all. He was twisted by his father's abuse and it made him into a wholly unlikable, ridiculous character. He never redeemed himself in my eyes. Yes, he apologized eventually, but I still couldn't find it in myself to like him. Daisy was truly messed up to love a man like him.
Is Deceiver dark as it says in the title? No, not at all. Gray and a little bleak, but not truly dark. If you want dark, read A Zavarelli's Underworld series, or Tillie Cole's Scarred Souls series. Now those women know how to write dark, truly dark, twisted stuff that makes you fear for their characters. Deceiver isn't dark, it's not particularly pleasant or romantic, but it's not dark. So if dark is what you're looking for, you won't find it in Deceiver, or in Stranger, either. Instead if you're looking for a kind of depressing, gray tale of vengeance and a little bit of kidnapping, then Deceiver is the story for you.
