I gave this book a 3.5 rating but rounded up.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This was my first novel by this author but I am excited to say it will not be my last. I really enjoyed this story of Dylan, the uber sexy alpha male hottie and the hot mess of a girl named Brooke. Brooke is faithful to her DB of a boyfriend until she finds him cheating and then she runs to ho

Deception is one of those books you look at and say you need to read it because the cover is hot. Then you read the blurb and you know you are going to enjoy it. I will go so far as to say that this is a gem of a read because when I started reading it I could not put it down. I had an array of emotions running through me when I started reading it because you get so much meat in the beginning that you already know there is going to be trouble but your not sure what kind of trouble.

Fixer of Deceit definitely had potential. I liked the concept behind the story and the characters but it just needed a bit more refinement. The whole story felt rushed and everything happened very quickly with little build up of characters and feelings. It is novella length and I think if the author expanded the book a little more to build the relationship between Brooke and Dylan so it didn't feel so insta-love I would have been able to connect more with them. I would have liked to

Deception (#1 The Fixer series) by Alyson Raynes


Brooke & Dylan

Ok, where to start... I was feeling a little hum-drum about this one (at first). I had a bit of a problem grasping the insta-relationship that formed! I'm not saying it can't happen, buuuttttt, well, most times there's a larger and longer build up to sex or even the "I love you's" but I'm still ok with it as the story took on more twists as I read deeper into it. This is most definitely a cliffhanger,

5 fabulous stars and a standing ovation for Alyson Raynes! It’s been a while since I've read a book worthy of a 5 star rating. This novella can be compared to so many books but the two that I kept thinking of while reading was fifty shades and the crossfire series, yet it is also unique in its own way. I was so enthralled with this book that I could not put it d

This is my first Alyson Raynes book and I'm definitely hooked! This is the first book in "The Fixer" series and it was AMAZING!!

Brooke and Stefan have been together 11 years and you'd think you know someone after being together that long. Stefan is a powerful attorney and loves Brooke (or so it appears). He doesn't want to get married because it's only a piece of paper and doesn't really want kids. Brooke wants it all. Brooke has an interview at Prescott Oil as an accountant and one of the inter

Deception is book one in Alyson Raynes “The Fixer” Series. This is the start of Brooke and Dylan’s story that’s full of love, hate, drama and suspense.

Brooke is in her thirties and has been in a….somewhat committed relationship for eleven years. She’s not happy, she’s content and feels safe. Some relationships are bound to change, people change. Brooke doesn’t realize it yet; but, her life will never be the same.

Dylan Prescott is, of sorts, Brooke’s white knight. He’s hot, rich and knows precis

The concept behind the story is interesting enough to keep me reading but I felt the story need more refinement because the whole thing felt rushed. I guess the best way to put it is i needed more word count to the story to connect better with Brooke and her family.
Received this book from Netgalley for my honest thoughts.

Wow, I just finished reading this book and can not wait to start book two! This was an amazing combination of romance, mystery and revelations. The love story between Brooke and Dylan is genuine and the connection is undeniable. I was sucked into the story from page one and was on edge till the very end. Thank you Ashley for a great book.

Um livro esquisito, na minha opinião. Contém leves spoilers.

Brooke viva com Stefan há 11 anos. Ela começou a trabalhar e conheceu Dylan. Sem qualquer aviso, passa um ano dentro da história, durante o qual (também sem indicação nenhuma, cabendo ao leitor presumir isso) ambos desenvolvem amizade, sendo que que Brooke já era atraída por ele desde o início.

Passado esse ano, Brooke descobre que Stefan a traía e o confrontou, até aí desconhecia sua real índole violenta.

‘Deception’ is the first book of a new series by Alyson Raynes. Previously released as ‘Fixer of Deceit’ it has come back with a new title and new cover, and I must admit I like the change.

I can’t really go into detail with this review without giving too much away. I did find it slow and hard to get into to begin with, but I continued to read as I wanted to know how the book was going to turn out. And I’m glad I stuck with it. The more I read, the more I

I received an ARC from the author ALYSON RAYNES in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey's very honest opinion of DECEPTION. Having never read anything that thing Ms. Raynes has written before. I was unsure of what type of author and writer she would be.

Once I opened this extremely interesting book- I quickly found out. I wanted to gobble up this contemporary romance. Ms. Raynes when writing has a way of bringing such love-crime-hatred-mob- all rolled up into one story,

Deception is book #1 in the Fixer series! As always, I am stingy with a 5 star but this was an easy 4.5 for me…I loved it!

She has been in a relationship for 11 years with her boyfriend who happens to be a very important lawyer…however; all that Brook knows is not what it seems.

Ok, before I get into it too deep…just a little tip, get some ice, a fan or even a coldpack cause “Deception” by Alyson Raynes has got some serious heat. Thank goodness there was a cold front that dropped the temps at my house while I was reading the adventures of Brooke and Dylan, cause I lost count how many times I just had to stand outside in the icy breeze for a few minutes to cool off.

This is book one in the Fixer series by Alyson Raynes. Since the description on the book was short I don't want to say to much and give anything away. But I will say this; I loved this book. Yes it was a quick short read but there was so much that went on in this book It was completely action packed. There was never a dull moment.

I just finished Deception and I liked it. There were a few things that were cheesy but it was an overall good read. Brooke has been in a relationship with Stefan for over 11 years. Everything is going well. She gets a new job and ends up training with Dylan. Dylan is a hot badass and she steers clear of him even though he wants her. She finds out that Stefan hasn’t exactly been faithful and confronts him. Little did she know that he has been keeping more secrets and things get out of hand when s ...more

I'm going to start with the bad and the reason I only gave this book 4 stars, there were points in the story that felt very rushed and not well explained that left me kind of reeling. I like the gritty details and in a few spots this book was lacking in those, glossing over stuff to move on to the next scene.

Now on to the good! This book had me so hooked that I didn't want to stop reading to put my kids to bed (but I did because I had to). This would be a great book to appease my inner teenage g

What happens when you realize that the man you love and have been living with for 11 years is not who you think he is. That is what happens to Brooke Stone. She thought she had it all until one day changes all of that.

Brooke Stone landed an amazing job but in the process is exposed to the sexy Greek god, Dylan Prescott. Brooke has always been faithful to her boyfriend Stefan but Dylan causes her to have wicked thoughts about him.

The synopsis is pretty great as you can see but I found this book left me feeling ... disappointed!
this is my first novel by this author so I didn't know what to expect ... I enjoyed the idea of the storyline but the characters seemed a little flat and I had a hard time believing that they fell in love SO quickly.
