Forgiving Lies by Molly McAdams




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 will-power 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?


What I liked about the Book

The author gave clues and allowed the reader to make inferences rather than just flat out telling us everything.
Loved seeing things from both Kashmir and Rachel's Point of view. It flowed very easily and was clear who was speaking because they had distinct personalities that came out in  When first introduced to each of the main characters, it wasn't obvious in what way they were flawed, yet that came through clearly while reading. There were multiple peaks throughout the story that pulled me in over and over, rather than just rising action - climax - resolution.
The love scenes were just that - love scenes that were sweet and passionate. Nothing over the top or raunchy. They got your heartbeat going a bit but you wouldn't be embarrassed to recommend this to your mom without blushing. Characters were very likable - I loved that Rachel was such a strong independent female lead. I found myself really caring them. Leaves you wanting to read the next book in the series.

What I disliked about the book.

I did not like the cliffhanger that the readers are left with at the end of the book, especially since the next book does not come out until next year. I think that is a long time to keep a reader hanging.

I enjoy reading Molly McAdams books and Forgiving Lies has the promise of being a great series and I am looking forward to book #2. So be prepared to be drawn into the lives of Kash and Rachel and enjoy the ride.
