But looks can be deceiving...

description

Before I get into my review, I think that it needs to be said that I had massively high hopes for this book. I was super excited to read it but it was a bit of a disappointment. In a big way.

I LOVE a good bad boy in a book. They are just so much fun to read. That is not what I got with this one. I think that I'm supposed to like Chase ... I'm pretty sure that was the author's intention but dude. This guy was a douche bag. Could not stand him. I found him scary-possessive and then he would grab

This story started a bit strangely for me -

The mMC - Chase - was a bit of an arrogant, self-centered and self absorbed Rich Guy, who was leading a double life. Never being true to himself. Granted he was good looking and apparently "could have any woman he wanted"

Enter the fMC - Ivy - Free spirited, self reliant, Artist - yes, she came from a similar background to Chase but she never hesitated to blaze her own trail! (by the way I loved her - even with her hang ups)

They meet at a high society c

“Chase bends down, grabs me by the hips, and throws me over his shoulder like some conquering warrior. He carries me over to his monstrous dining table and places me gently on my feet.”

5 sexy rock stars!!! Good grief this book was off the charts sexy!!! Chase is the epitome of a bad boy rock star and I loved every minute of it!!!

I like books about Billionaire CEO's but mix a hot Rockstar into the mix and this could be my ultimate book!!!

By day Chase Hudson is a hot CEO, women love him, men want to be him but underneath his sexy expensive suit by night is one hot tattooed, pierced rock god.

Ivy Maisen hate the privileged world she has been brought up in, she has tattoos, loves art and works in a gallery - she followed her dreams and made them happen, fortunately her parents love and support her, they may not like the path

I love books about Rockstars and I love books about CEO's... combine them into 1 book and I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven......What an absolutely amazing combination. This book caught my attention right before I even started it......

After reading this book, the title was perfect for the storyline. I swear everyone in this book was holding secrets, some worse than others but in the end they were all coming out in the open. I truly loved Ivy. She grew up privileged with money but she didn’t let that stop her, she still followed her dream even though her parents had other plans for her.

I really enjoyed this story, it has lots of twists and turns that as you read through it the danger grips you. There are lots of things hidden between the two of them but you can't help feeling the bond between them and this says a lot for the writing and how the characters develop and really does deserve a read. if you like billionaire, rock star, strong women and fate then this is the story for you
Connie
Loved it! Both Ivy and Chase are hiding secret identities. But there are so many dirty secrets, dirty deals and shady characters in this story, that sometimes it's difficult to figure out who's "playing" who? Nicely Done!

This book was okay. It did get a little bit better at the end. I liked reading Tainted Deception, but I did feel like there were parts that could have had some more details. Overall, I enjoyed it.

"You know you are in love when you don't want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." -Dr. Seuss

Chase Hudson, twenty-eight year old billionaire and director of Hudson Industries, knows how to put on a smile and play the part to please everyone including his father. All Chase really wants is to be Chaser, the tattooed lead singer of Hardcore. Chase feels like a ticking bomb leading this double life. Straight-laced, serious and stern during the week and impulsive, spont

Title : Tainted Deception

Author : Aleya Michelle

My Rating : 3.5 / 5 stars

The book follows the story of Ivy and Chase. Ivy Maisen is that type of a character, who is trying to break away from the stereotyped daughter image of a rich family and Chase Hudson is the type of guy that Ivy thinks she wants to escape — billionaire, extremely good looking, cocky as hell, and a guy that women salivate over.

But looks can be deceiving…

Chase is the director of Hudson Industries, but he’s secretly also the lead singer and guitarist of the rock band Hardcore. When he’s the director, he’s a perfectionist, wears fancy clothes and he has certain goals in his life. Chase hates that job and the way his dad treats him at work, but he loves that he can give a lot of money to people who need it. Chase as the rocker is the total opposite of the director; he’s carefree, impulsive and wild. He likes t

I would consider this book to be a “crossover” which means it’s for those of you who like billionaire romances and rock romance. Chase Hudson is head of Hudson Enterprises with his father, Charles. This suave business man knows how to work not only his clients but the boardroom as well. Not only that, he is one of the most eligible bachelors around. I mean, who wouldn’t want this hot, sexy, successful business man?! Well, we might have found the girl for that…Ivy Maisen is also from money but sh ...more

There is no better title for this book cause you will get to see a story with lies, deceit, passion and a double life. This is the first book I've read by this author and I will definitely be reading more by this author.
Ivy grew up in the high class society and she despises this world and shops at thrift stores and gives her trust fund money to charity while working her dream job that her parents are not happy about.

I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book, through Reading Deals, so I could give an honest review.

This is the story of Chase/Chaser, CEO of Hudson Industries and lead singer/guitarist of Hardcore, and Ivy, an artist with a job at the Museum of Modern Art. The 2 are very different on the surface, Chase rich and uptight (or so Ivy thinks when she first meets him) and Ivy, carefree and not so rich. But in reality, they are more alike than they realize. Both are kind and creative, it's

There are two sides to some people for many reasons. Some are for good reasons and some are just a way to get through another day.
Chase has been put in the position of running his Dad's company with his Dad over shadowing him. His Dad wants him to reflect himself and that is something Chase will not allow himself to become. During the day he is the man running the company, but on the weekends, he's the rocker that is in his own element. No one knows Chase is Chaser, the lead singer of Ha

Rockstars and HOT CEO's are two of my favorite characters in the books I LOVE to read. Aleya Michelle gives me the main character, Chase Hudson and he is both of these things BUT doesn't want the world to know about his rockstar status. He's a billionaire, cocky, and the guy ALL women want.

Ivy Maisen grew up in a rich family but didn't want to live like that. She supports herself and wants to live her life her way. She doesn't want her family to make her decisions for her. When out with her fami

Tattoos, piercing, Harley?? Yummy!! Chase wants nothing more than to live the life of his alter ego, it’s his dream.
