Look, but don’t touch…she might as well wear a neon sign that says it. It just makes me want her more.

She might be above me in every way, but I still want her under me.

I’ve got no business touching her rich-girl skin, but that won’t stop me from stealing a taste. Because rules were meant to be broken—especially when the prize is so fine.

In a world where nothing is as it

Meghan March did it again ! She worked her magic to deliver another mind blowing read.

Beneath These Lies is the fifth book in the amazing Beneath Series I absolutly love with passion. Difficult to talk about it without giving anything away. Just know this book has it all. We are given another great storyline packed with action, secrets, mystery, romance, passion and steamy hot sex scenes. The characters are incredible and the story is beautiful and perfectly told. I instantly liked this book and

That cover though...

It was my first book from this series so I didn’t really know what to expect. I mean I knew I liked Meghan March’s writing style because I liked her Dirty Billionaire series. And the writing was ok, sex scenes were extremely hot and it had some twists I didn’t expect. I just couldn’t find the chemistry between main characters and I didn’t feel the emotional connection between any party involved.

I loved the hero, he was strong, confident, pure badass alpha ma

A little predictable. Cute story though and because I like the series.
Once again we are given a book that is surrounded in secrets and mystery. Because of this I am unable to say too much about the plot of the story, as well as the main characters that are involved. I will say that I enjoyed this book over all. There were a few times where I thought that the direction of the story was one I might not like; but as I continued I was pleased to find out I was wrong!

I loved the hero in this one. As with the other books in this series; we are given a very strong Alpha

A little late to the game but better late then never. I don't even know how I missed Rix but damn if he didn't hit all of the spots for me. No real review here because I'm lazy but this totally gave me a hit of the Meghan March alpha I was craving
It was... ok

It was a pretty good read, nothing spectacular but not bad either. I knew from the first few pages how it'll end, could have sworn that Rix's an (view spoiler). It was the expected outcome, and I can't say that I'm disappointed.

Didn't like that the chick was so indecisive, but I can understand it. And well, she was pretty nice, so I liked her (ish). Rix was great, although I feel really sorry for the cop friend, hope there'll be a book about him too,
4 I need my Rix stars

What a great reading was this one!!!

This man was dangerous. And yet, strangely, I trust him.

LOVED Rix and how possessive he could be with his woman!

She was mine. He might be the better man, but I didn't care.
I'd laid my claim, and I wouldn't give her up for anything or nothing!

I enjoyed this reading and I liked the characters as well...Although Rix was my favorite he did everything in his power to make sure his little duchess was safe and protected from any harm...I lov

I'm so done here. I don't do love triangles at all. I thought maybe it wasn't what it looked like and read on but when the h is down on her knees and about to give oral to the H and the om.suddenly shows up on her doorstep and shoves his tongue down her throat and she thinks his kiss is "good" that's when I throw in the towel.

Fuck that shit.

Well…she’s done it again. Meghan March has out done herself with this book. The Beneath Series has always been a favorite of mine, and with each book I fall even more in love with these characters, and New Orleans.

Meghan was very tight lipped about this book. It’s been pretty top secret about who’s book this was going to be, and let me tell you, going into Beneath These Lies completely blind was the absolute best way to read it. It heightened the experience exponentially. I could not turn the pa

5+ -- Shadows And Light -- stars

Wow. Amazing! I love this book so much! This series is one of my favorite series ever and I’m always impatiently waiting for the next book. Every book has emotion, a little bit of suspense and steam. No matter how high my expectations are, Meghan March always delivers. She is an amazing writer. I loved every word. Every chapter. Every romantic moment.

I didn’t know what to expect, since the blurb is very vague and I didn’t know the characters names when I started.

5+++ Beneath These Lies Stars

Omg this BOOK!!

Stop everything and read it. I can’t even tell you how awesome it is.

I think this is my favorite of the series. Rix is just so HOT, and Valentina is perfect for him.

It’s really hard to review this book because I don’t want to give anything away. So I will just talk about the characters.

We meet Valentina in the book previous and you know she has a hard past but she is a strong woman and she deserves to find that one man that is going to be her ever
4 F-me, Rix Stars!!!!

I'm so sad that I'm all caught up with this series, so I've run out of books to read. What the hell am I supposed to do with my life now?!?!?!?!?!

This wasn't my fave of the series, but it was still a strong and entertaining read. But after the all-time high that I was coming off of after reading Beneath These Scars, it would have been hard for ANY BOOK to top that. I still enjoyed it. I still highly recommend it to fans of the series because something HUGE happens at the end

Stupid love triangle! Not cool!

Normally, I can read about love triangles but the one here was not cool! It took of my 2 stars from the rating!

This book is told mainly by Valentina, the heroine. However, some chapters, though few of them, are told by Rix and Hennesy, the two men caught up in the love triangle with her.

The start of the attraction and involvement between "Rix & Valentina" and "Hennesy & Valentina" happen around the same period of time and Valentina leads both of them on for

I absolutely loved this book. The narration really was phenomenal in this audiobook. I am pretty much convinced that I would have liked this book if I had picked up a print copy to read but the narration made me fall in love with the story. I didn't want to stop listening and I really didn't stop very often. I am so glad that I picked this one up.

I really liked the characters in this story. Characters are always important but with a romance n
Triangle alert!!!

I get why Val was apprehensive about Rix - hello...gang leader!

But leading him and the cop on was NOT COOL! Kissing them both multiple times. Again, not cool!

I just did not like Val enough to really like the book. Rix was great. But his big secret was super obvious from the beginning.

If you read a lot it's becoming very rare to come across a gem you so love and enjoy!

This is a true gem for me! I knew immediatly who had my heart! Liked him instantly and the loving part easily followed.

Valentina hasn't had an easy life, she has a dark and traumatic past. I so wanted her to be happy and a life without trouble.

I am a chaotic person who is reading this series not in order. I'm checking out the othefs now.
4 stars - Contemporary Romance/Erotic Romance/Romantic Suspense

Definitely my favorite of the series, so far!

HOLY SHIT. I went into this story with one thing in mind. I thought I knew who was going to get their love story next but I was so freaking wrong.

Valentina hasn’t really lived her life since her brutal attack years ago. But for a girl who put dating on the back burner, she suddenly seems to be the object of affection from more than one man.

A cop and a gang leader. Light and darkness. For a daughter of a judge, she knows which side of the law she should stay on, but when something happens to a cl

Meghan March simply does not disappoint in this romantic, suspenseful, and captivating read!

I was asked not to give off any spoilers in this, so I won't, but just know that you won't be disappointed.

Meghan March keep her blurbs really vague, and for the sake of enjoying this book the way the author wants, I’m not going to say much about it. I went in blind and loved the story’s twists and turns, and I would hate to ruin that for anybody else so I’m keeping my review vague as well.

It’s another strong heroine and another totally alpha hero, the series’ theme of a couple crossing socio-economic lifestyles and opposites attractin

OMG, I can't even! So good! I LOVED IT!

Do you know how hard it was for me, going in blind, not knowing a thing about the characters? Whose book is it? Who's the hero? Who's the heroine? What the heck happens?

And then I got the book and ahhhh! At first, I was all, "Aha, I knew it!" but then my eyes went wide and I was all, "Noooo... Well, makes sense." AND THEN, Meghan went and did THAT and oh, boy! I was, "She didn't! But she did!"

"A cop, a gang leader, and the daughter of a judge."

Valentina owns an art gallery that caters to the wealthy side of New Orleans. When her employee and friend disappears she goes to the cops, specifically Detective Hennessy, the man who's been slowly building her trust and flirting with her. When he can't do anything to help her friend, she investigates herself, which leads her to the bad part of town and right to Rix's doorstep. Rix is the leader of the local gang, and not the man Valentina
~ Book provided by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

I squealed a little when Beneath These Lies arrived on my Kindle. I really hoped this would be as good as the other four books in the series and I wasn't disappointed. I devoured the whole book in not even three hours.

Both our heroine and hero were awesome and totally likeable. I was asked by the author to not use their names (or tell you about the plot) and I agreed, so I won't tell you who this book is about. Just know that they

This book hasn't been released yet (we don't even know the title as of the date I'm writing this) but I'm annoyed that someone has given it a 1 star rating. I'm trying to balance things out here.

This is a great series and I'm very much looking forward to this book!!!

ETA: Alright, just read this book and you know what? My 5 star rating stands. I loved it! It's my favourite of the series. Can't wait for book 6!
