I LOVED writing this book. LOVE this story, and hope you will, too!!

Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies delivers a thrill ride of action-paced suspense. Genie, an ex-government agent, just wanted to be left alone. But when guns are blazing at her private retreat, she can't ignore her family or her life any longer. The hardest part of her returning is that she has to face her hunky ex, who she left without a good explanation. I loved the emotions and the crazy adventures these two have--Will they get together? Should they get together?--as they are forced to work togethe...more

This is the first book I've read from Cooke, and I REALLY enjoyed it. I'm an avid romantic suspense reader, and Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies, had me hooked from page one. The opening of the book is so well done that I didn't want to put it down. This is not one of those books that you read blissfully unaware. It required you to think, keep guessing, stay engaged!!

Another thing that made this book unique was the psychic element that I didn't expect to find. For me, it added an interesting depth to...more

"Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies" by Cynthia Cooke was a very good romantic suspense read that I thoroughly enjoyed so much that I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. You will find yourself guessing until the very end which you will be left with a cliffhanger. Be ready for non stop action read! This author was able to keep me on the edge of my seat all the way...more

Great read. Loved the author's voice. Fast paced and good balance between the love story and the suspense, with a good deal more mystery than I expected. Had me guessing until the end. Fun!
Lisa Kessler
Lots of twists and tension in this one! I loved Kyle and I'm so glad he finally got his happy ending! :)

Fun suspenseful escape!

The cover of this book was spot on. The woman on the cover looked so fierce and powerful. The colors were a great backdrop to the image. It was the perfect cover for a great thriller. This was a great start to the story and had me intrigued.



This book starts out with us meeting Genie. We learn she is a former secret agent that is hiding out from someone. This is where the roller coaster ride begins. We are locked into non-stop action. Genie is so kick butt and amazing. She is a force to be reckon...more

RATING: 4 BUFF BOY STARS!!

I wouldn’t mind my parcel guy ( even though it is a girl, I’m dreaming here) to look like the guy that rocks up to Genie’s secret residence, not that it was that secret, apparently. Buff boy drops off a parcel and then all hell breaks loose. Cynthia has a lot of fun with Genie's 'secret' residence, hehe!

Enter Kyle in his chopper with Johnny. I like Johnny, I would have loved more of him, he is fun. Kyle swoops down to bring Genie in for some questioning and also a bit o...more

Rhayne's review posted on Guilty Pleasures

Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies delivers an electrifying, exciting tale full of deception and suspense.

Genie is an ex-secret government agent. She trusts no one. She is the daughter of the ex-director of the most secretive agency in the US. Lies and deception are second nature to her. After getting a message from her sister, she breaks protocol and goes to investigate a lead. She was set up and was almost killed in a warehouse fire. Immediately after, she is...more

My Review:

As the premier release for the Dead Sexy line for Entangled, this book lives up to the hype. I loved this book. There is tons of action, intrigue, and one seriously hot and sexy couple in Genie and Kyle.
Genie and Kyle were everything to each other, partners and lovers with a Happily Ever After in their future, until 8 months ago when her family lies caught up to them and Kyle almost died. Genie left him without a backward glance for his own protection. The love between this two is unde...more

I have been a huge fan of Entangled Publishing since it began--loving the Teen and Indulgence lines. So, I was ecstatic to get to read Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies. Unfortunately, this book wasn't up to Entangled par for me.

The story concept was interesting, but the execution of the plot was shaky. I literally had to force myself to finish the book, and had I not needed to write a review for Netgalley, I probably would not have even finished it.

What did I dislike about it?

There was WAY too much...more

The title of this book is the best part about it.

There. Now you know. I'm going to go ahead and write the hell out of this review, because I love the sound of my own voice (praise Christian [Grey] someone does). But if you're in a hurry and want a quickie, you can forget about this one.

I get the feeling Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies (which sounds like the title of a Tori Spelling movie) is part of a series, but I can't find its predecessors. It seems as if it must be, because as you read the book,...more

Received from NetGalley.
Genie is a kick-butt heroine with deep issues- one of them being an inherited legacy of psychic ability that she shares with her sisters. The novel starts off action packed and continues from there. I was amazed by Cooke’s ability to keep the reader enthralled with a major action scene within the first twenty pages of the novel.
Genie’s past catches up to her and lies surround her as she attempts to find the truth about her mother’s death. With one sister who may be a tr...more

Review originally published at Reading Reality

Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies by Cynthia Cooke is the very first book in Entangled Publishing's new Dead Sexy romantic suspense imprint.

It turned out to be a great opening act for the new line, because DSLL is definitely a very sexy and suspenseful story. And considering the plot of spies, conspiracy theories and secrets-gone-wrong, the heroine and her hero leave a whole cemetery-full of dead bad-guys along the way to their, well, let's not spoil thing...more
Rhayne
This story really is a web of deceit on everyone’s part. It’s a guessing game from the first to the last chapter to know who you can and can’t trust. To say it’s a page turner is putting it lightly. I absolutely loved Kyle. He is not afraid to tell and show Genie how he feels about her. The conversation that he has with her about his feeling of hurt and betrayal when he woke up in the hospital and learn that she had left was heart wrenching. There is a lot of back story on her past that comes in...more

FULL REVIEW ON: Talk Supe

The theme of the story is your staple mystery/suspense thriller: vendetta, grief, revenge and an intriguing whodunit element that will keep you riveted til the end. There's no lack of car chases, big guns and powerful ammunition, pointing fingers and first class espionage to keep me in a reading trance. I no longer remember the number of times I changed my mind on who I thought was the villain. My choices ranged from Genie's father to her sister to the big federal depa...more
Incy Black
Strong characters, especially the heroine Genie who kicks ass with the best of them without any loss of endearing vulnerability. Pacy with plenty of action and most rewarding of all, packed full of twists and surprises. Complex but in an accessible way which makes for a very satisfying read. One I'll keep and read again because in my eagerness to find out what happens, I know I missed some of the deeper layers to Kyle and Genie. Wish I hadn't finished it.
Beckey
The book is a whodunit suspense/mystery that will have you turning pages to the very end... It has everything from espionage to point fingers and much more.

Not big fan of mysteries but I found this one an and entertaining read.
Annie Quinty
