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.

I have been waiting very impatiently for this next installment of Kash and Rachel's story. I loved Forgiving Lies so much when I read it late last year, and I knew that I would be reading Molly McAdams writing for years to come. Deceiving Lies, although a very different book from the first book, was in itself an amazing book.

First of all I have to say how amazing a writer Molly is. She has the ability for me to want to read her character over and over again. When I finished this book, all I wanted was to read it over again to just so that i would not have to leave these characters behind. Kash and Rachel have quickly become one of my favorite New Adult couples and this book gave the ending I needed.

What I think I liked about this book was its focus on the mystery of finding out who took Rachel and how to get her back. I loved reading both Rachel's point of view of the kidnapping and Kash's because they were so unbelievably different, and yet similarly haunting. I will say that for me the kidnapping when on for too long and I wanted more time between Kash and Rachel. But I loved the test this event had on their relationship. It was great to read the way they reacted to each other after everything was over and how everything was not as easy as it used to be.

I am stickler for endings and I like them to be perfect, and honestly this one was perfect. It had everything I ever wanted for this couple. I love Happily Ever Afters and this one had a great one. I cannot wait to see what Molly writes next because I know I will be first in line to read it!
