The Blurb: 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 Review: Pass me a glass of sweet tea and turn on a fan cuz' it just got HOT up in here! Love Lies and Deception is one smoking hot book! I not only need to sit back in my seat I also need to fan down the flames! I was engulfed in this story and hated when it ended. Alec Holden is one very fine but mysterious character that sent my head to spinning. Marissa has her hands full with Alec as he takes her world and spins it every which way. I can't help but wonder if we have heard the last of Marissa and Alec or will there be more to this story later on. L.P. Dover has yet once again amazed me with her writing I fall in love with her books time and time again. I am definitely a huge fan of her work and hope to be reading her works for a long time to come!
