From the USA Today bestselling author of the Unbreakable series, comes a sexy, heart-wrenching novel…Betrayed by Lies.

As an ATF agent, bringing down the Estrada cartel has been my sole mission. I’m a skilled agent, determined and fearless, but a relentless pursuit and a willingness to risk everything almost killed me.

A year later, when an opportunity in Los Angeles presents itself, I jump at the chance to start over and rebuild the career and life I almost lost.
Kate Stevens was not part of my new plan. I never expected she would be the one to save me from my past. She was exactly what I needed—smart, beautiful and independent. I finally have a future I look forward to.

Only nothing in my life ever goes according to plan. Losing Kate is not an option, but fate seems poised to ruin me, and there isn’t a damn thing I can do about it.

Celeste’s review:

Oh Sam Cortez, you perfect sexy man, I love you. I feel like I should confess…I had zero recollection of the details of book 1 (Broken by Lies) or book 2 (Bound by Lies), except that I loved them and I knew I flailed. I mean really flailed. I got all tingly re-reading my own reviews! I’m telling you this because you might be worried that it’s the 3rd book in the series, but don’t be. Thank god Rebecca did a great job providing refreshers and this could essentially be read as a standalone. So, if you have a terrible memory like me (I blame the wine) then you have no worries and you can jump head first into Sam’s bed this book. It will all come back to you, I promise.

In this delicious installment there was some serious insta-attraction, and for me, I loved how both Kate and Sam didn’t deny it. There were no games and it was gloriously refreshing. Neither of them wasted any time pretending the connection didn’t exist and went for it. I so appreciated that and got behind them 100%.

More than just chemistry, though, the reason I loved both Sam and Kate so much is that they were both strong and independent, yet weren’t afraid to say when they were hurt or vulnerable. They owned their weakness and it was so sexy on Sam, and straight up awesome on Kate. I loved them as individuals and together. Doesn’t always happen in a book!

Sexy times were oooooooh la la. You, Ms. Shea, are awesome. Let’s leave it at that and you guys should just be ready to feel the heat!

The ending was a very long prologue, and as much as the romance happened at a whirl wind pace, it actually felt totally right. I’m a sucker for true love and their relationship was definitely the real deal.

The only thing I felt when the story ended was that it was too short. I neeeeeeeeded more. I was so ready to sink my teeth into this, and just as I was becoming totally immersed…it was over. *crycrycry* I’m greedy, what can I say. Rebecca writes in a way that brings characters to life and without realizing it, I find they are important to me, they feel real. Either you can or you can’t do this, and Ms. Shea has got that talent. I love her.

Rec it? YES! Just go in knowing this is a quick read, but such a good one. If you love New Adult romances done right, this is a must for your TBR, you won’t regret it!

Happy reading!
