Love, Lies and Deception, By L.P. Dover


What do you do when the one person you thought you knew turns out to be the one you knew the least?

Twenty-three year old Marissa Chase, and soon to be college graduate, has everything going for her: wonderful friends, a lucrative degree, and a chance to explore the world. What made it even better – or so she thought – was when her path crossed with the alluring Alec Holden. Unable to stay away from him, Marissa experiences a love like no other, and falls into his world of passion
and intrigue. However, things begin to shift when this path takes a deadly turn.


Her trust is put to the test when hidden dangers unfold before her, revealing secrets that have been buried for years. Secrets that were meant to stay hidden. Murder, lies, and betrayal … will Marissa figure it all out in time and escape with her life intact, or will she be too late and fall into the trap of deception?
                This is the first book that I have read by the author and I have mixed emotions about it.  Although I did completely love the drama and suspense that took place during the course of the book, it felt at times like there was too much of it.  The romance part of the book was completely steamy, you can’t deny that fact.
                The characters were all different and each brought something to the table throughout the book.  I do have to say, I didn’t see the end coming at all and I was completely glad that I was caught off guard for that part!  The story went along quite smoothly considering there was so much action that was happening throughout it.
                All in all, I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it anyone who enjoys suspenseful reads.
