I'm a huge sucker for Molly McAdams books, especially Rachel and Kash. She has the perfect mix of Romance, drama, and comedy. Usually 2nd books in a series are not as good as the first and sadly that's true about Deceiving Lies. That doesn't mean it still wasn't amazing!

Kash and Rachel finally have a chance at a normal life after everything that happened with Blake in Texas. Rachel meets Kash's parents and family (in the most hilarious way) and they even start planning a wedding! You would think

Wow, just wow. This book took me by surprise in every aspect. I knew with the ending of the first, it was going to be a crazy book. But dang, was I wrong! So much drama and craziness! I absolutely love Molly's writing and cannot wait to dive into more of her books. I'm seriously kicking myself, as I always do for having waited so long to start her books. I am finally starting to understand the love for her books! Kash has completely stolen a chunk of my heart, especially towards the end. I was w ...more

Okay so we were left with the big cliff hanger at the end of Forgiving Lies. Before the book picked up where it left off it went back a little bit to give you insight how it all went down once Rachel moved to Tampa.
I'm so glad it did because there was some comical moments when Rachel met Kash's parents and moving in with him and his proposal!

So the sweetness is shortly lived because we are brought up to speed where Rachel is taken.

After Forgiving Lies dumbfounded me with that cliffhanger, I couldn't pick up this sequel fast enough.

Coming straight from the goosebump-inducing and swooningly-hot first book, I was not prepared for the darkness in this sequel, nor how much of the story it took up. It was gritty, brutal and dark for a long time to the point where I was beginning to fear this story wasn't for me:

“This doesn't seem real; this is something you see in movies, and on TV shows. It's something you read about in the ne
When I started this, I expected to hop into where it ended in Forgiving Lies. Glad that it took me back to the events prior to the cliffhanger in the first book. I really thought it was the obsessed guy, Blake (how he managed to keep himself alive? Not sure. But he was my number one suspect and I didn’t bother to hypothesize on the how’s) but it turned he wasn’t and it was part of Kash's job.

Rachel was kidnapped and Kash was doing all he can to save his fiancée. And while Rachel was abducted, sh

4 1/2 stars...Ahhh, I loved this book. I kept seeing all of the different ways this story could go, and I was afraid of most of them, but what actually happened I was really happy with.

At first I was a little taken aback with the way this book started. I mean, the cliffhanger we were left with from the first installment was CRAZY intense! So when this one started out giving us some more back story before she is taken, I was surprised. I liked what it gave us though and actually was a catalyst f

Quick & Dirty: Heart pounding thriller that leaves you breathless and full of emotion. I can’t stress enough how much I love Molly McAdams and this story is her at the top of her game!!!!

Opening Sentence: I nervously flipped my long hair over my shoulders and smoothed my hands down my shirt a few times as I took deep breaths in and out.

See, the shit thing about this is that book one leaves us with SUCH a cliffhanger- Rachel gets kidnapped by gang members her fiance busted as an undercover cop, and you're like- what in the mother hell? What is even happening in my life, I need my blood pressure medication immediately, and maybe an ice pack to calm my head, and it's just... it's too much.

Then this book comes out and obviously, I'm like ripping through it. Only to be... disappointed. Let down. Morose. I feel sad, people. I'm sad

Oh sweet baby Jesus my heart! I'm still feeling my jumbled mix of anguish, heartache, and pure happiness. My emotions were all over the place with this one, I love that I can always count on Molly to toss me through the emotional wringer. She can shatter my heart like a sledge hammer then gently pick up each shard and delicately put it back together.

loved this book. Molly never disappoints. I loved Deceiving Lies more than Forgiving Lies. It was more suspenseful kept me wanting to read it and never wanting to put it down.
I know I should have probably disliked him but I loved Trent aka Taylor. He wanted to save her and hated his life in the gang Rachel's lucky he was there and was looking out for her. The shower scene with him though..funny. Not going to lie but I thought Molly would send us on another love triangle book when I was

A wonderful sequel for an amazing book.

I loved the progress that the characters have been through, loved how Rachel's feelings were expressed and how that even though she was confused about her feelings for Trent she never questioned her love for Kash.

Loved the parts that were from Trent's Point of view and would adore to read his story cause I really felt for him and understood his struggles and the fact that he never had a chance in deciding what he truly wanted to do with his life.

I loved the pace and storyline of this book. I loved the epilogue so so much! But I had a hard time with Rachel and her feelings and decisions she made and continued to contemplate. Without spoilers, that’s about all I can say. It was a good drama factor, but it felt a little desperate in its timing. Anyway, overall I love his duet and I can’t wait to read more about these characters in future books!

As much as I love Rachel and Kash's relationship I got to talk about Mason! Mason is such a fun and loving guy. I would love to be friends with him. Plus there also Trent. There just something about a bad guy that you love seem to love. I get why Rachel was so torn. In the end it all worked all for them! ...more

I received a physical copy of this book from the publishers for participation in a blog tour and in exchange for an honest review.

When I finished Forgiving Lies it left off on such a cliffhanger. Rachel had been kidnapped and Kash had just rushed home to find that she was missing and that it was the old gang that had put a hit out on him and his partner that was behind it. Kash is beside himself with anguish over losing Rachel and my heart bled for him. I was desperate to get my hand

Another great, action-packed and intense novel by Molly McAdams. Deceiving lies will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

The work Kash used to do is dangerous. But after the hit was put out on him that had him and his partner sent out of state, where he met Rachel, he’s glad to be done with the undercover work. Especially now that he has Rachel to lookout for and protect. But when Rachel is kidnapped by the gang he used to “run” with, Kash is forced to return to the streets to

Deceiving Lies is the sequel the Molly McAdam's Forgiving Lies. I couldn't wait to see where this story was going to go after the cliffhanger ending. Kash and Rachel went through a whole hell of a lot and came out on the other side in Forgiving Lies. I couldn't really imagine Rachel being kidnapped in this book and how her and Kash's relationship would survive it.

I should preface this book by saying I am a huge Molly McAdams fan and really liked Forgiving Lies so I was excited when this follow up book was released. If you have not read Forgiving Lies you need to read that one first or you will be lost in this one.

I was really curious how this book would go because the ending of Forgiving Lies really surprised me, well this did not disappoint.

Rachel and Kash's love story touched my heart in Forgiving Lies, and I was looking forward to seeing their story continue in Deceiving. The interesting thing about this second installment is that while Rachel is the one supposedly in danger, it was Kash I ached for while reading. I couldn't even imagine going through the agony and devastation of that situation, and when he broke down I broke down as well. Yet through it all he was strong and so committed to Rachel. His love for her warmed my hea ...more

I really enjoyed Forgiving Lies and thought it would be the end of the story but then this was released so I dived right back in to Kash & Rachel’s life.

It was all going beautifully with whispered sweet words, hot sexiness and a cute puppy until Rachel is kidnapped. Some bad men are seeking a bargaining tool and Rachel is it. They knew that Kash would stop at nothing to get her back and they want some of their men released from jail in return for her release.

I have looked at some of the reviews and some of the posts on FB, and I am so confused as to why there is negativity about this book. I loved it!

This is the sequel to Forgiving Lies. I loved that Molly didn't just pick up where the epilogue of the 1st book left us. She went back to prior events over the few weeks/months or so leading up to the kidnapping. As much as I much as I hate love triangles, I loved that Taylor/Trent had a voice in this book as well as Kash and Rachael. I loved reading hi

“Funny how things like that can change when you're in these kind of situations. Kash usually drove me crazy. He was so stubborn, and such a smart-ass, but I missed those annoying traits so much. I missed the way our personalities clashed and resulted in us fighting; I would give anything to fight with Kash again. The thought of having children with him used to terrify me, and now I was afraid I'd never get to have that opportunity. And I hated the nickname Sour Patch so damn much, but I would never complain about it again if it meant hearing Kash's voice.” 7 likes
