The fabulous New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author returns with a sizzling, funny, and deeply emotional tale of passion and secrets, deception and forgiveness
A matter of secrets . . .
Undercover cop Logan "Kash" Ryan can't afford a distraction like his new neighbor Rachel Masters, even if she's the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. To catch a serial killer, he needs to stay focused, yet all he can think about is the feisty, long-legged coed whose guarded nature intrigues him.
A matter of lies . . .
Deceived and hurt before, Rachel would rather be a single, crazy cat lady than trust another guy, especially a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy with a Harley, like Kash. But when his liquid-steel eyes meet hers, it takes all of Rachel's willpower to stop herself from exploring his hot body with her own.
A matter of love . . .
As much as they try to keep it platonic, the friction between them sparks an irresistible heat that soon consumes them. Can Kash keep Rachel's heart and her life safe even as he risks his own? Will she be able to forgive his lies . . . or will she run when she discovers the dangerous truth?
I will say that when I read this book last year (i know I am late with the review, i am sorry!) I hadn't to read anything from Molly McAdams before, but I am so glad I picked up this book because I loved it! Forgiving Lies is a New Adult novel, but I do think that it has some Adult aspects to it as well, which I think made me like even more.
We follow Rachel, who is dealing with a secret that is tearing her apart, and it is not until she meets Kash that everything around seems to crumble and dissolve away. But Kash has a secret of his own, and it will take everything he has not to reveal to Rachel because he knows that it will tear them apart.
What I think I liked the most about this book was the dual perspectives. I am a sucker for those because I love seeing two sides to the same story. It gives depth to the story, and honestly I like seeing how the guys feels during a love story. Its a very unique perspective that I think needs to be explored more, and I am glad that in New Adult, this is something that is explore more than not.
Both Rachel and Kash were extremely likable characters who had great personlaities and I loved their interactions because they were sarcastic and funny, and it just seemed real. Their chemistry on teh page was amazing to read and the love scenes were extremely well done. They were not doing just for the sake of having sex, there was emotion behind it and it made sense, so I loved that.
Because of the this book I will be a Molly McAdams fan for life, I cannot wait to get into more of her work, and if you haven't read my review of Needing Her: A Novella, read it here. It is just as amazing as this book!
