Title: Deceiving Lies
Author: Molly McAdams
Rating: 3.5 Groupie Stars
The irresistible, blazing-hot sequel to New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams's Forgiving Lies.
Rachel is supposed to be planning her wedding to Kash, the love of her life. After the crazy year they've had, she's ready to settle down and live a completely normal life. Well, as normal as it can be. But there's something else waiting—something threatening to tear them apart.
Kash is ready for it all with Rach. Especially if all includes having a football team of babies with his future wife. With his line of work, he knows how short life can be, and doesn't want to waste another minute of theirs. But now his past as an undercover narcotics agent has come back to haunt him ... and it's the girl he loves who's caught in the middle.
Trent Cruz's orders are clear: take the girl. But there's something about this girl that has him changing the rules and playing a dangerous game to keep her safe. When his time as Rachel's protector runs out, he will turn his back on the only life he's known, and risk everything, if it means getting her out alive.
"Deceiving people was natural..it had been my job for so long that lying to protect myself, or those I loved, was as easy as breathing."
This book unfortunately didn't live up to my Molly McAdams standards. For me it definitely fell flat in the emotional department and it seemed like the same book as Forgiving Lies but with less drama and action. I mean how many times can one woman get kidnapped!!?
"If I didn't get Rachel back soon, I was going to lose my goddamn mind."
Rachel is just getting over being kidnapped and tortured by Black and starting fresh in Florida with Kash when the most horrible thing she could imagine happened again. Rachel is kidnapped by the gang that Kash had infiltrated and are now keeping her until he gets their bosses out of jail. Kash goes crazy looking for her but in unable to find her anywhere. How long will she last without him saving her or a better question, how long can he last without her?
Rachel is kept by Trent(Taylor) in a room unharmed. But when you are kept in a room with someone for too long and start to learn about them, no matter how "bad" you think that person is, feelings start to become a factor. Rachel is confused about what is happening and still hopes that Kash will rescue her soon, but she can't help but have a little shiver and some goosebumps when Trent looks at her.
I think that Molly could have ended this series with one book and a novella or Epilogue would have been good for the story. There was just so many things that seemed the same in this book as the first. I am still interested to read about Mason and Trent but I lacked any pull for this book.

About Molly McAdams:
Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
