This was terrible! Absolutely terrible! I couldn't read one more word of this.
I don't remember the last time I read a book so bad! All those books I hated and ranted on about and gave low ratings to: I apologize! I am sincerely remorseful, as you were not this bad! You couldn't have been so bad even if you tried! I think I just read the worst book of my life. Well, now I have an answer for the lovely question, "what is the worst book you've ever read". So there's that!

Curiosity killed the reader.

Chloe Swanson … Chloe, Chloee, Chloeee,Chloooooeeeee.

This is a First Person POV, and I wouldn’t want to spend another 120 pages in Chloe’s head. I don’t know how old she is ‘supposed’ to be, but I think sixteen would be an accurate guess. I don’t care how many big words she knows. Her thoughts, and actions were a bewilderment. I thought this was a parody, the prose beyond purple into a language that was at times, beyond any color wheel.

Patrick Collins … Who? Mr. Coll

These characters are awful, I couldn't stand Chloe, she has the mental age of..I'm guessing a 12-14 year-old. Her actions didn't make much sense and her inner dialogue was so stupid.
The guy... whatever his name is, was booooring.
The Baroness -aka the bitch- was an interesting character, until the restroom incident which I may add was a WTF moment for me, seriously... I think the Baroness might be a werewoman or something, she grabbed Chloe by the throat and lift her while doing some pretty weird

There really isn’t much to say, the story line was almost too easy, there was a “Baroness” who causes drama but other than that, Eh! Think I’ll pass on the rest of the series … The sex scenes could have been HOT but I got distracted, I was too busy crakin up:

” …spread me apart while palpitating the viscosity of my wetness with agile fingers.”

”Like a piston with a crank shaft, he pumped me hard….vibratory jolts cascading throughout my entire body, domino style.”

Someone needs to step away from the thesaurus. Some of the words and phrases she uses in this book are outrageous. Piston crank shaft? Diamond cutter? Really? And the exclamation points need to go. Way too many. And one last in New York, they are not called freeways, they are highways, expressways and parkways. The route to get to the hamptons from Manhattan made no sense either. And most people who live in NYC don't drive all over, they take a cab.
Thank god it was free.

So this story captured my interest from the prologue. As soon as I read it I wanted to read the rest of the story & find out how Chloe got to the place that she was at.

Chloe is a sweet Midwestern girl who you can’t help but like immediately. She is sincere and funny and determined to make something of herself.

Patrick, what can I say about him? How many synonyms are there for HOT… I mean he has your panties melting when you read this book.

This has to be the worst book I've ever read. There is literally no storyline? I was going to stop reading it but then I noticed something unusual. Something that had me laughing, when I don't think it was the authors intention? Not just bad editing, I've read many books with bad editing. This was an attempt to be descriptive but it just didn't hit the mark. What it did do was make sure I finished the book as I was ridiculously entertained by it all. Here are some of my favourites:

I've made a promise to myself not to waste time reading something if it brings me to full stop every few sentences for an editing error. It's too bad about this one, the plot promised to have a different twist. But when I read 'my mouth was as dry as a dessert storm' I pictured cupcakes and pieces of pie flying at me. A few paragraphs later 'seductively seduce' was the last straw. If you can overlook this, go ahead and read it. Let me know if the story was as good as it sounded. I'll be reading ...more

The reason why I actually started reading Deceived is because my blog's Twitter account had been followed by author Eve Carter. And I thought, I could as well give it a go in order to return the favour! And I must say the cover and title where rather appealing. At first, I was disappointed that the book had only 120 pages, but in the end I guess it was better that way... If you are afraid of spoilers you might not want to read on, but the

I enjoyed this book. I have a harder time connecting with the characters when a book is this short, but I did enjoy the characters as individuals and as a couple. Some of the scenes read a tad wordy for me, but I did love the easy visual that I got from it.
I'm excited for book two, and am looking forward to finding out what happens with Patrick and Chloe. I love a good villain and the Baroness was just that. I knew she would cause a problem at some point, I just wish it wasn't so close to the en

I'm sorry, it's not that the book was poorly written, because it's written well. But, I'm tired of reading pathetic, weak women who cry over stupid things. I can't finish the book because I can't relate to the female character. Seriously, you're going to go all bat sh!t jealous after all he did was kiss you? I really do apologize, but I can't finish it. Unless someone tells me that she all of a sudden gets over her melodrama, I can't go on. ...more

I love Eve's prose, she churned out a very steamy erotica. Her protagonist actually feels things emotionally and it's beautifully reflected on the pages.

This book is one of the better written ones that I have read in this genre.

The end, of course, is a cliffhanger! heheh... got to love those.
Absolutely looking forward to Eve's future works.

As the book started with Chloe standing in the water, talking about her feelings and how this whole thing started a couple of weeks ago, you already knew from the beginning that something, at some point would go wrong, which automatically makes me want to find out what goes wrong.

At first I was enjoying this story. However the further I got into this the more I started to dislike Chloe. As it is told from her point of view, this didn't help the story to improve for me.

Her behavior seems very immature. Even though, what is happening in her situation/relationship with Patrick is crystal clear, her behavior comes across as completely irrational. We never do find out how old she is exactly. But she refers to her college degree, and so I'm assuming early to mid 20's. I felt t

What a sexy romp of a story! A typical tale of small town girl trying to make her way in the Big Apple, falling for her smokin’ hot boss, having really inappropriate contact and the somewhat predictable results from that contact/relationship. However, there are additional factors that come into play with this story that make it not another ‘wanna be’ book flavor of the month. I enjoyed (not really!) the introduction of the evil ‘other woman’. Sex was steamy but not over the top. Pacing, atmosphe ...more

Deceived Part 1 New York (Erotic Romance)
By Eve Carter

If you are into a fast read with steamy sex then this is the book for you!!

Chloe and Patrick (Chloe's boss) start fast, so there is not much waiting for the good stuff to start.
This book has a lot of turns, and a bitter ex. (which is something I love)

The Baroness, the woman in Patrick's life before Chloe, will stop at nothing to keep the two apart. She is down right despicable, a great character to hate.

Chloe seems to know what she wants, doe
Deceived wasn't good, it wasn't bad - the best i can say is that it was ok. The story wasnt terrible, but I found myself annoyed by the excessive use of exclamation points. They were used all the time, and personally I didn't think Patrick would be expressing excitement... He seemed like he should be a lot more contained.
The romance aspect also unraveled too quickly in my opinion. It seemed unnaturally fast. In other books (50 Shades, Crossfire series, etc) the relationships developed at a very

"Deceived" did not impress. The dialogues were horrible. They pretty much sounded fake. The events, especially at the beginning, as well; like the game was fixed from the start. It didn't ring true at all.

Chloe is unsufferable. She lives in her own head and can be naive to a ridiculous extent.

The sex could have been very hot if the author didn't use a shit-ton of unremarkable analogies that will mess with your patience, big time!

Overall, I was slightly disappointed but the ending left me wanting

This book was horrible. It had editing errors and read like the life of a teenager. And it was like the author tried to throw in big words to make the writing seem more mature. And all it did was leave a bitter taste in my mouth. And really just made me want to laugh with the immature writing technique. I couldn't even finish this story. Quit reading it right where Chloe interrupted the dinner between Patrick and the Baroness. Don't waste your time on this one and move on to something else. ...more

3.5 Stars.

Enjoyable novella, first book in series. Chloe has been working in New York for 6 months when she discovers one day that her crush on her boss Patrick goes both ways. She then has to endure a business meeting with the firm's top client who blatantly flirts with Patrick and belittles her. This story is about love, letting go, discovery and deception. Looking forward to Book 2.
