I’m never the same person twice.
It’s never been an issue.
But I underestimated her.
The beautiful woman next door. There’s something sexy about the way she watches me, eyes wide with an innocent curiosity. I find myself aching for her attention. I want her to look at me, but not when I’m covered in the blood of the man I just killed.
I live in the dark. She could be my light. I want her. And I know she feels it too.
When what I do puts her life in danger, everything changes. And I start to realize that maybe not all is as it seems. Every part of me screams to save her…
But what if I’m wrong.
What if she’s the one saving me?

Reviewed by Donna
Hours have passed since I finished reading Deceit. I’m still dumbfounded and bowled over. Totally left wanting more, dare I say I was cussin’ and cursin’ after turning the last page? Well, when I was kindly offered to review Deceit, I must admit I had not heard of it and went in totally blind. Man… am I glad I did! Just the unexpected gave the story such an incredible bite! And did it bite? YES!
Kace Colt sheared the pages. Leaving me aghast wasn’t enough — I wanted more! He’s a walking weapon to be reckoned with and trained to kill. I found him so intriguing and so absorbing that I was left spent after reading his story. He lives next door to Lily and he’s drawn to her in inexplicable ways. He’ll do whatever is necessary to protect those who need it. Strong, hot and an alpha male personified, his darkness drew me into his character like a bee to a honey pot. Lily was on my level. Maybe she was the one who could bring light into his life. She definitely noticed her neighbour and I couldn’t help but love her for her intuitiveness. Curious to know more about the mysterious Kace, she doesn’t realise this man could also spell danger. Lily’s a surgical vet nurse. I got to see her working with the animals which is her greatest love and I quickly learnt that she has a heart of gold. Lily made me laugh quite a few times, but even though she has a sassy personality, the situation she was going to find herself undoubtedly worried me.
” I need to know one thing first.”
“Who are you?”
This story includes other characters that are to say, interesting! And as this is a series, I’m hoping to find out much more about them. Deceit has so much going on that I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat shouting out aloud. Yes, I was so engrossed that I forgot that the world existed around me. Action packed with drama, mystery, suspense and steamy hot scenes between Kace and Lily gave me little breathing space between chapters. Let’s touch slightly on the steaminess! What I loved was the build-up. The authors cleverly gave me a slow burn in which the attraction and the potential sexy scenarios inevitably made me gasp for air. The ensuing sparkling result is nothing less than explosive! This is by far the least frustrating part in the story. Learning the back story of the protagonists and the overwhelming feelings between them didn’t exasperate me either. When I finally got to savour the nitty-gritty and sublime. . . you can imagine what I’m talking about, I thought my kindle was going to burn my hands with the scorching heat.
“Okay, so whatever goes down in here, I want you to know I’m doing it to protect you. to protect us.”
I won’t touch too deeply on the story as potential readers need to know that this book has everything in it. The collaboration of the two authors worked extremely well; they have given the story fluidity and opened up my curiosity to know how they came up with such a damn good plot and overwhelming characters. I’m a huge reading fan and love something different once in a while. This book has most certainly gave me food for thought. Not only have I been unable to stop thinking about the story all day, but the ending drove me crazy with unanswered questions. I can’t repeat what I called Ms Jane and Ms Osborn when I read the closing chapter! I have given Deceit five fierce stars due to the packed content and the effect it had on me. I’m really looking forward to book two and I have all sorts of thoughts as to where I’m hoping it goes.
“You don’t have to hide yourself from me,” “I want it all, every beaten and broken piece of you.”
