Deliberate Deceptions (Hauberk Protection #3)
A little lying and misdirection in the name of love is never wrong. Right?
Hauberk Protection, Book 3
Chad Miller once had the perfect life—a beautiful baby daughter, a loving wife, a promising career with the FBI. Within a year, he’d lost everything. Making Hauberk Protection a success salvaged his career, but he’s never managed to get over the one fateful decision that s...more
On the one hand, there is this beautiful portrayal of a second chance at love. I mean, the depth of feelings evoked by the love story, for me, was unexpected and simply lovely. I felt Chad's pain, his anger, his intense longing for what he has lost. I felt his tension, his mist ...more
It didn't work for me. Mainly it could be that the plot and the suspense part were definitely too weak and too thin. And I didn't get to know Lauren enough. Furthermore, it bugged me quite a lot that Thalia was an evil bitch. I didn't anticipate something like that after reading Sam's story. :(
At least Chad and Lauren were talking about the SIDS death of thei ...more
The amount of heartache in this story is more than most can bear. The obstacles to keep these two lovers apart is appalling. What's worse is condemnation and judgment ...more
Deliberate Deceptions is the third book in the Hauberk Protection series. This is the story about Chad Miller who a silent partner in Hauberk and his ex-wife of 10 years, Lauren. Both Chad and Lauren are former FBI agents. Their world and their marriage were torn apart following both personal and professional tragedies. I am absolutely amazed at the amount of deception that broke these two apart and I will say that this book was aptly titled.
Chad is a ver ...more
This is #3 in this series and I haven't read the other 2. There are a lot of details about these organizations and the characters within them that I felt like I was missing by not having read the other 2. I may be wrong about that, but this story simply seemed to be missing big chunks of information or the information that was there was extremely confusing to me. Other than that, this was a great book.
Heart-breaking from chapter 1, this book throws you into the heartache that has cons ...more
Amid the secrets of black ops and high security protection organization, Lauren and Chad are thrown together after eight years of being apart. Less than open, honest dealings, even though meant to be in the best interest of both Lauren and Chad, lead to tense and dangerous moments.
Misinformation and guilt have made them both miserable for all these eight years while each grieved alone for their darling baby that died. The emotional str ...more
We begin our tale with a picture of a happy family. We meet Chad and Lauren, the content married cou ...more
Now I'm a big Braemel fan, so needless to say this was yet another great book from her that I thoroughly enjoyed! I felt that it was an emotional read where I was able to connect with the characters and feel their pain for all that they had lost. I was so glad that the book definitely gave me the happy ending for Lauren & Chad that I felt they were owed as a result of all the ...more
Some things didn't make sense to me like why the people in Chad and Lauren's work lives would be so concerned about getting them together.
But for the most part, it's a good book and I enjoyed reading it. I liked it enough to read other books ...more
A good story and one that filled in the blanks of some of the other character's in this series.
