From #1 bestselling author Lora Leigh comes Dirty Little Lies, a scintillating novel of the Men of Summer—and the scorching hot women who set their hearts on fire…
THE HEART HAS ITS SECRETS.
Zack Richards knows he’s asking for trouble. Trying to protect a member of the notorious Maddox family could get a man killed—even a battle-scarred, muscle-ripped alpha like Zack. But the woman who has captured his wildest fantasies is nothing like the rest of her power-hungry clan. She’s innocent, beautiful, and has quickly become the one shining light in his dark, desperate world. The only woman worth fighting for…and dying for…
BUT PASSION NEVER LIES.
Her name is Grace Maddox—and everybody knows that she is a marked woman. Targeted for her family’s sins and hunted like a wild animal, Grace has no choice but to accept Zack’s protection. In his arms, she finally feels safe. In his eyes, she sees an insatiable desire that mirrors her own. But the truth is dangerous—and could end up tearing them apart. Will surrendering to Zack end up being the biggest mistake of Grace’s life?
I have to admit I was very confused when I started reading this. I didn't realize it was the third in a series so I would recommend reading them in order. That aside, I did enjoy the book. The relationship, both past and present, between Zach and Grace is intriguing. He's loved her for years but for her own good he has stayed away. If she knew the truth about him she'd run far and fast. Grace can't understand Zach. She can feel his interest but he refuses to act on it. She too has been in love with Zach but she's tired of waiting on him. So why is he suddenly everywhere?? Can she believe anything he tells her??
This is a book I would recommend but like I said, read them in order.
More than 5-Stars!!!
Out of five stars, I give this one a 10! This is book 3 in the Men of Summer series and it features Zack Richards and Grace Maddox. Let me start out with how brilliant the story line is. There were a lot of characters but they all play their part. This is the type of book that needs 110% of your attention. There's so much happening but everything eventually falls into place. I was so immersed in this story that I felt like I was there watching it all happen in real time. The mess that had become Grace's life was horrible. Losing your father, being left with a mother you knew didn't love you and the man she's wanted forever that didn't want her, or so she thought, made me want to just hug her and kick every male character in the book. Everyone thought she was this weak, fragile princess. Her strengths may not lie in picking up a weapon but she was strong in other areas. I was definitely not expecting the plot twist! Awesome!
I hope this author will continue this series because some of the Maddox brothers and cousins ABSOLUTELY need their stories told. I'm looking forward to whatever this author comes out with next.
great plot paired with a hot and heavy romance
Dirty Little Lies is a seductive story that brings the fight against terrorism home.
The Kin were set up as the last home defense against terrorism but something has gone terribly wrong. Greed and betrayal have been uncovered, and it hit hard, with family members turning against each other for power and money.
Grace Maddox has found herself caught up in the cross fire and Zach Richards is her only hope.
Grace’s mother has been playing the kin against themselves for years, now caught in her treasonous acts, she has tried to deflect the blame on her own daughter, Grace. The kin aren’t taking any chances. They have decided to pull Grace in for interrogations that would have a war harden agent shaking in their boots…but Zach is having none of that. The only way Zach can save Grace is to claim her for his own and all that implies.
Grace has been in love with Zach since she was old enough to remember, how will survive living in his home and sharing his bed.
Zach has been enthralled by the sweet Grace but has always kept his distance knowing his secrets could tear Grace apart.
I really enjoyed Dirty Little Lies. My only complaint and in an effort to avoid spoilers, let’s just say, I had a hard time with how quickly Grace caved all around.
As always, Leigh has provided and intense, suspense filled, mystery surrounded by a sultry and sizzling romance. If you love a really great plot paired with a hot and heavy erotic romance, Leigh is the go to author.
I received this ARC copy of Dirty Little Lies from St. Martin's Press in exchange for a honest review.
