I’ve been a criminal, a thief, and a killer. I’ve been the hero who rushes in to save the day. I’ve been the corporate CEO who runs the world. I’ve been everything.
I’ve been nothing.
That’s my talent. I’m a chameleon, I can become anyone, and I can do anything. I do whatever it takes to get the job done.
This time, she’s the job. I’m supposed to get close to her. I’m supposed to find out everything she knows about a killer who is turning Louisiana red with blood. Only Kennedy Clarke isn’t what I expect. Not the rich party girl. She’s scared, and lost, and she’s a victim in this tangled web. She wants someone to rely on. Someone who will help her when the whole world falls in flames around her.
She thinks I’m that guy. She’s wrong. I’m the one working against her even as I swear to protect her.
She needs to be careful. She needs to stop making me want her so much. Because the longer I’m with her, I’m not so sure what’s right and what’s wrong any longer.
Be careful, Kennedy. DON’T LOVE A LIAR.
Ready for a dark and dangerous romantic suspense? Be careful who you trust, and remember that no one is really who you think…DON’T LOVE A LIAR.
I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while, and since I’m a mood reader, I was in the mood for a good Romantic Suspense so I bought this book. I love a good betrayal plot and I was not disappointed.
Kennedy is the twin sister to America’s Most Wanted, Kyle. The FBI thinks Kyle is a serial killer, and they think Kennedy is hiding him. However, Kennedy has cooperated with law enforcement, and they aren’t finding anything. Enter Remy.
Remy St. Clair was in the last book Don’t Trust a Killer and he’s an FBI agent who is basically a chameleon when he goes undercover. This time around, his mission is Kennedy. He’s got to gain Kennedy’s trust and get her to spill her secrets. The problem is that her secrets may not be what he thinks.
Kennedy has spent her whole life holding her family’s secrets close to the vest, but for the first time in her life, she’s willing to share them with someone else. Remy isn’t just the PI she’s hired to help her find her missing brother, but he’s the man she’s falling for. But what happens when she finds out Remy isn’t who she thinks he is?
This book was intense, and definitely had me guessing, but let’s talk betrayal! I love seeing how an author redeems a character once he or she has completely betrayed the trust of another. And wow! I sometimes want to see a character grovel, I sometimes want to see a character make some huge offer, but with this book, I genuinely didn’t know what I wanted to see from Remy. I knew the grand gesture would have to be big, but I was surprised with what he said and did (in a good way!). Remy was a great hero, and I loved Kennedy, a woman at the end of her rope, barely holding it together, and yet still able to stay strong and do what needs to be done.
Cynthia Eden is the master (mistress?) of Romantic Suspense. Her books never fail to keep me on the edge of my seat, and she never disappoints in the character department. She has well-rounded characters who feel real, the reactions they have feel real, and they seem like someone you might know. They handle amazing situations, against all odds, and when they get their HEA, you feel they deserve it. You want them to be happy, and when they finally are, you’re happy for them.
Not only was this a 5 star book for me, but I went back through and re-read it because I wasn’t quite ready to leave Remy and Kennedy just yet. Grab this one, guys, you won’t regret it!
