Even though this wasn't my favorite of the series, Natalene and Micah's story still managed to touch my heart. Just by reading the blurb, I could tell that this was going to keep my attention. This love story has the intensity and passion that this author in known for, and the storyline to back it up. There were a few things that bothered me, but all in all, this was a beautiful and enjoyable romance from beginning to end.

One thing the author did extremely well was keep up the anticipation facto

Sometimes a man just wants his woman next to him always, "he turns on the shower and undresses. “No, I do.” He stands under the water and asks, “Are you getting in?” Micah is a very protective, alpha man, “I don’t know what I’ll do, baby, but I’m not going to have him threatening you, or thinking what he did was okay. He put his hands on you, and for that, he needs to pay.” I enjoyed this book Micah was just so damn sexy. ...more

Smokin' hot and surprisingly unexpected.

Liam Brown has been living a life that is not at all what it seems. He used to be someone else. He used to love someone with every fiber of his being. He lost almost everyone that mattered to him and now ten years later something is begging for his attention.

Natalene had it all, until it was taken away. Leaving behind her love and fleeing before anyone found her. She made a quiet new life for herself holding on to hope that one day she would no longer have

LK Collins does it again! I absolutely love her writing. She comes up with some of the best characters that you will ever want to read about. Natalene and Micah are flawed people that led a life of crime when they were younger. Then tragedy hits and Micah 'dies' while Natalene goes on the run. Ten years later, Micah is living a much different life as Liam - a very successful lawyer. Things happen that puts Natalene back at the front of his mind and he finally gives into temptation and sets out t ...more

This story sucked me in right from the start. Things all started happening right away. I liked that ghd story got right to the point. Once Nat and Micah were reunited their passion for one another was intense. I was left breathless at times and super nervous at others. I would find myself holding my breath in hopes that something bad wasn't lurking around the corner for these two. They had their work cut out for them so they could even attempt to be safe for the first time in over a decade. That ...more

This book had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning. It's a riveting page turner that even non believers in true love and romance will love.

Read this book!

I have to say this book has more of a story then the first 3. But still I wish it was more about the story than so much about the sex. It got overwhelming boring and at a point I couldn't wait to be done with it. Not my favorite sorry! ...more

Wow! This was so different from all the other books, I wasn't expecting this. Still a really good story. Micha and Natalene were always meant to be together. Things just got really messed up. Chives and decisions were made that altered their lives forever. Reunited they have to fight to keep their love together. An exciting and exhilarating story. ...more

SKEPTICISM is the fourth book in the Life, Destiny, Fate Series by L. K. Collins. This book can be read as a standalone, but trust me, read them all. Each book compliments each other and the characters and stories are unforgettable. L. K. Collins talent’s shine in this series. It is easy to see why this series is a #1 best seller.

SKEPTICISM continues with Micah and Natalene's tumultuous love story. Their love story is emotional, heart wrenching, and passionate, and will take so many dangerous t

LK Collins knows how to write strong and memorable characters. Her latest installment in the Life.Destiny.Fate series proves it.

Micah/Liam and Natalene have intense chemistry and their story is one to keep the reader engaged from beginning to end. Like the others in the series, this book is full of emotional and scorching hot scenes.

Micah and Natalene have been in love for ages; their separation doing nothing to diminish that passion they’ve always felt for each other. Past decisions and actio

OK so starting Skepticism while trying to go to sleep may have not been my best idea! It started with a bang, and never let down so I could catch my breath so I didn't go to sleep until I finished it.

Micah Lomano aka Liam Brown had grown up breaking the law. When his last act went badly, his whole family was killed, and he had to go on the run. Now 10 years later, he's a successful attorney with a new identity, but the problem is that he can't get the girl he loved out of his head. He decided t

Explosive! That’s one of the words I’ll use to describe this gem by LK Collins. From the beginning you are pulled into a story of love, murder, and loss. Micah and Natalene’s story is filled with so much raw emotions. You can feel their pain from being away from each other and will want nothing but a happy ending for this couple who have so much more to lose than each other. Their passion for each other is carnal. They devour each other and use their love as fuel to set their sights on a future

I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed Micah and Nat's story. It is very well written and the story line flows very well. It's a story about two people who love each other so much and because their love is so great they end up losing so many years just trying to ensure the safety of each other. The characters are very well developed and easy to connect with. There is just the right mix of passion, love, hate, suspense, danger, mystery and drama in this story

Micah and Nat were in love and leading a life filled with scams and robbery. When revenge tears them apart for years, they both start new lives under alias'. Micah can never forget the love of his life and the guilt of not trying to find her sooner leads him back into her arms.

Can old flames be reignited and can they begin a new life together ...a more legal one or will the past come back to haunt them?

Micah and Nat, as all the couples in this series are intensely "romantic" and can't seem to k

Good but.....not quite there.

I really liked the story but the plot wasn't believable. Timeline, careers (mainly his) and other things just made it impossible for me to swallow.

I like Micah and Natalene's relationship, even though I choked down the fact that she would be open to rekindling the relationship so quickly after how it ended. Their relationship is strong and very intense but I formed no real connection with the couple, which was a pity because they had some hot sex scenes in between

This was my favorite book of the series so far, I really enjoyed it! 4.5 Stars!

Liam and Natalene lived a life of crime as young adults. Liam aka Micah was “killed” and 10 years later has now come back into Natalene’s life as a sexy, successful, lawyer. Immediately upon seeing one another again the sparks fly and their relationship is intense. Micah goes to any lengths to protect what’s his and he considers Natalene his, though Natalene isn’t the type to just sit back and allow him to protect her

Skepticism is book four in the Life and Destiny Fate, it starts ten years after.

Natalene and Micah where a young couple that committed some crimes, a tragedy happens when Micah apparently dies and so Natalene has to run. This book starts ten years after that. Micah is now known as Liam, a very successful lawyer, after such a long time he decides to start searching for Natalene.

What happens next is for you all to find out in this beautifully written story. Would they get back or their past will

I gave this book 4.5 stars!!

I was really excited to read this book. In reading in the previous books, I knew that Liam had a story he was hiding. WOW! What a story he was hiding. With his life of crime and the love of his life behind him, he does everything in his power to lead a normal life until he can't get his first love out of his mind. When everything is on the line, will he go back to his old life or fight for love and everything he has in his life now?

This is Micah and Natalene’s story. My heart hurt for both characters, but I absolutely adored Micah’s strong, protective side with Natalene.

While living a life of crime, Micah and Nat only know breaking the rules, and it ultimately causes Micah his family. Ten years later, Micah is a lawyer with thoughts of Nat circulating in his mind.

Skepticism contains everything. Not only is there suspense, there is also raw emotion as well as moments of extreme intensity. If you are looking for a fast-paced

I received this arc for an honest review. This is book 4, Liam's story. I really enjoyed this one. I feel like the books get better as they go. Liam has a sad, messed up back story and his past comes back to bite him. Though a part of his past that shows up is definitely a good thing. He struggles to complete a task owing someone a past debt. Will he complete the task in time? While I was happy with one part of the ending, I was kind of sad with the way things ended with CJ and Vince. I was kind ...more

Full of raw emotion, intense love and passion...I wouldn't expect anything less from LK Collins. Although it's not my favorite of the series (Troy will always have my heart) it is still a perfect fit to one of my all time favorite series.

Nat and Micah as so full of love, passion, hate, drama, suspense - this book keeps you on the edge of your seat. Another amazing read from LK and you definitely don't want to pass up this read.

This book is a must read ! I'm happy and a little sad about the ending. I can't really elaborate more without giving anything away. If you have read her other books you will definitely not be disappointed. One more thing I need CJs storyline please do not leave him out.

This real-life couple is downright dirty in the bedroom, which bleeds through the pages of their steaming hot stories.
