But, she made one mistake...she stepped back into my world, trying to run from her past.
She's mine, and she will soon learn there is no escape when fate says she belongs to me.
Protecting loved ones
It's interesting that Rey is called the "deceptive knight" when he doesn't have anything on Lilly. I think the description fits both of them very well. The Kings are very powerful, and yet they seem to meet women who can put them to shame. I love that. I also love that Rey is Lilly's weakness and any relationship that they may have had, past or future, is being put to the test. I loved getting to see what both were made of and how they could work together. The chemistry was electric and the journey was crazy, but fascinating.
There are so many twist and turns in this story. Just when you think you know what’s happening, things are thrown into the mix that changes everything. I was so glued to kindle trying to figure things out but still came up a little short. The chemistry between Lilly and Rey was hot. Incendiary hot! I can’t wait to get to Sam’s story. That should be a doozy.
A Second Chance Has Never Looked So Good
Deceptive Knight is Book 3 in The Street Kings interconnected series. Books can be read as stand-alone’s, but to get the most out of the series I would highly recommend reading books in order. With each book we are pulled deeper into the Kings world and there isn’t anything these men won’t do for the ones they love. Sienna continues to build the suspense behind how their world works and the players at the table. These characters are complicated. Their lives are messy and raw. This is a dark romance that takes us into a world where rules are meant to be broken. Rey and Lilly’s second chance is littered with lies, not all bad, but those you tell to protect the ones you love. Lilly’s walls are mountainous and all Rey wants is to tear them down. Their chemistry is scorching and they are so in tune to one another. Fate made it so there was no one else for either of them…or Rey just “dickmatized” Lilly… I mean who would complain either way? Reyhan King had many faces, as does Lillian Lennox, their jobs required it to be so. We are immersed in the world of the CIA, Interpol, and the BND in this very intriguing tale. Told in dual first person narrative. We begin 8 months ago and travel to and from the past and present as we learn all about Rey and Lilly’s relationship. Their affair should have never of began. They should have never fallen in love. Both undercover working their jobs it happened anyway. Then Lilly made a choice, one that destroyed them, but ultimately saved Rey. Then she disappeared. Pawns in a larger game, unbeknownst to them, they find themselves face to face. Rey manipulates the situation to bring Lilly out of hiding. But, this just makes the plans of the people pulling the strings that much easier. As they come together for a job, one that is supposed to right all of Lilly’s wrongs, what they had together all those months ago resurfaces and is stronger than ever. The powers that be are in for a rude awakening…
