This is book three in the Secrets and Lies series. Book three starts where book two ends so make sure you read the previous books first.

Ethan and Mia's journey is a must read. So happy to read more of the characters we met in previous books. My emotions were all over the place reading this series.

I can't put into words how fantastic this book was. From start to finish I was literally gripped. I thought the author did a wonderful job with the conclusion of this series. As with previous books it

"They’ll fuel the fire within my soul to take every fucking person out that even remotely tries to get in my way from here on out."

Book 3 picks up straight where book 2 finishes. Finally we will get some answers of the corrupt underworld, mobs and politicians.

I was given this book for my honest review

“I opened my mouth, but the fierceness behind Yaya’s glare kept me from saying a word. “There are very few people in this world that get to experience a love like yours. The connection between your two souls transcends time and space. Don’t let the world take that away from you. I want you both to promise me that you’ll do whatever it takes to hold on to it.” Yaya to Mia and Ethan

This is the 3rd book and final book in the Secret and Lies

4.5 Stars!

I have been following this series from the beginning! All 3 books are full of twist and turns and trying to figure out who did what and who's in charge of who. If you're someone that likes a good mystery along with a love story, this is definitely for you! I have really grown to love all the characters throughout this series. Some more then others, but they all have had a great impact on the story. There

Concealed is the final book in the Secrets and Lies Series by M.M. Koenig. I am sad that this amazingly action packed series that has kept me on the edge of my seat with all of its twists, turns and revelations has come to an end but in true M.M. Koenig style she DID NOT disappoint in the slightest! This fantastic conclusion was a 4.5 star read for me and if you haven't yet picked up this series, I suggest you drop what you are reading now and get to it because you will become enthralled in the ...more

Overall series rating: 3.5 stars

With the final book in this series, I found more of the same as in the first two. If you've read my previous reviews, you already know that I think this storyline is too focused in the bedroom. It makes me wonder if the author wrote it that way on her own, or if someone was reading over her shoulder telling her "Put in more sex! Sex sells!" No matter, it's there and it is plentiful.

I wanted far more plot development. Give me two or three steamy scenes and I'm good

Yet again M. M. Koenig has left me speechless with her incredible emotional roller coaster and I am both sad and happy to have an ending to The Secrets and Lies series.

It was amazingly written, well thought through and smoldering HOT and I for one will recommend it (and the other two) to as many people as will listen. It simply HAS NO MATCH and I wish for every book lover to experience and be swept into this whirlwind series of strong emotions and adrenaline filled action, which leaves your hea

This book dives straight where it ended in part 2. Mia comes face to face with the reality of her parents being alive and her running away from her past in order to keep the ones she loves safe, due to the ever dangerous web she seems to be the centre of. Ethan's fierce loyalty and love for Mia sets him on a non-stop mission to find and protect her at all cost while desperately trying to avenge the evil forces that continue to corrupt and harm his life and the greater of society.

This was my first series by M. M. Koenig, but it surely will not be my last. I did start with book 1 Conflicted. This series was amazing and I can't believe I hadn't heard about this author or series before. It had everything I love in a story - from the plot, to the characters and everything in between. It will literally tug at your heart strings! The twists and turns for Ethan and Mia will leave you not wanting to put the book down. M.M.

Ok so.. this is the last book in the series. I enjoyed the plot (which I think was solid), I enjoyed Mia and Ethan ' s love story. But I was over the sex scenes. At some point it just felt like too much, like the author was trying to hard as far as that went.

I still think it's a decent series but when r he plot really had nothing to do with the sex (unlike 50 Shades or the like) it becomes too much.

WOW, this book left nothing unsaid. It tied the story of Mia and Ethan together beautifully. I felt every emotion while reading their final story, I literally laughed, cried, yelled, got angry. Wonderful series.

What a wonderful roller coaster to end the series with! I cried a lot, and wanted to throw my kindle, there were twists I didn't expect, and my heart burst with love for there characters. Mia and Ethan's love adventure is wrapped up in a beautiful way and I loved almost every minute of the ride.
I definitely recommend this whole series to read... and some stock in Kleenex. :wink:

Great story

What what an amazing story and journey I went in with this book. I laughed and cried. I couldn’t put it down at times. I feel like I really got to know a lot about each of these characters and can’t wait to read more about Jackson and Bri and Treys story. I love how it ended. Your my new favorite author!
I can't believe that the Secrets & Lies Series is over. This will ultimately always be on my to read list, and re-read list. There wasn't a moment in this series that I was disappointed. At all. M.M. Koenig has really outdone herself, and I am thrilled that I have been able to watch M.M. Koenig grow with her writing style, as well as with the characters.

Concealed is the third and final book in this series and its great and sad all at the same time. I have waited a while to get this story in my hands and let me tell you it was so worth the wait. This book most definitely earned the highest of the stars which is 5 by book world standard but I would give it much higher if I could. This book is part of series so can not be read as a standalone so you need to pick up Conflicted book 1 and Complicated book 2. I am so happy that I took a chance on thi ...more

This series consumed my soul. I knew that when I received the e-mail for the impending release of Concealed that I was going to emotionally go one of two ways: Bat shit crazy excited or scared senseless. The way the second book, Complicated, ended, I just wasn’t sure what life would have in store for Mia and Ethan. My heart broke with Mia’s ill-timed decision and I ached for resolution for these two characters. I had so many questions surrounding the grand reveal at the end of Complicated th

"That's how these rabbit holes work. I'm still spiraling down my own. Its a goddamn miracle I haven't lost my mind with everything I've learned."

Everything Mia believes about herself is a lie, the revelations at the end of book 2 lead Mia to leave with her parents, Lizzie and Nick, who are deep within the FBI. Treading carefully and playing the game Mia does everything she can to feign innocence and learn more about the events

Thank you M.M. Koenig for an amazing series. These characters, all of them, are among my favorites now in my reading history. I've only read a few MOB related books and didn't know what to expect. I loved these books, you did an incredible job.

Concealed is the Third and final book in the Secrets and Lies Series and if you haven't read Conflicted or Complicated, please grab them, you won't be disappointed.

This was such a bittersweet read for me because I have absolutely loved Ethan and Mia and this was their last book! They are on my top book couple list.

Ethan is an Alpha sex on stick. The man loves with everything he has and will go above and beyond for Mia. Mia is sassy and I loved how much she had developed in this book. She was kickass. Like I said it’s going to be hard to forget them. This book was phenomenal. This book revealed all the secrets and pasts. You will be shocked on what is reve

Wow. That pretty much sums up my feelings on the finale to a great series.

I feel like we’ve been following this intricate web of lies trying to see the small thread of truth where it all started. Because we all know that deception stems from some form of fact, and that’s exactly what happens in this book. The truth can’t be concealed anymore, and everything crashes down around Mia and Ethan—literarily in some cases.

CONCEALED by M.M. Koenig is the third and final book in this suspenseful series, this book will shock you and keep you on the edge of your seat.

The story in this book is very well written and developed and the plot is very fast paced and will keep you guessing till the very last chapter as to what is going on and who will still be alive by the end of the book. The characters in this book are something else, the love that Ethan and Mia share can be felt pouring off the pages of the book, and all

Heartache , love , happiness , anger , you name it and I felt it. I think the best part of this besides getting the answers and having some closure was the DUAL POV !!

This is the third and final book in the Secrets and Lies series by M M Koenig, and this book did not disappoint.

This book finally gives you all the answers you've waited for. Things certainly don't get any easier for Ethan, Mia and all their friends. This book had me on such an emotional roller coaster that I had to stop half way through and take a few days to regroup.

The past Mia Ryan wasn't even aware she had until recently has caught up with her. Now, she has to scramble to learn her own history in order to keep it from destroying her and those close to her. Secrets and lies are buried deep and collateral damage piles up as Mia and Ethan, the man she loves, try to find answers. There are so many bad guys that it's hard to narrow down which ones are responsible and how far reaching the corruption goes. As they follow the chain, it leads to the highest level ...more

This is Book 3 of 3 in a series that MUST be read in order to grasp the entire storyline.

When I first found this series, I was immediately drawn to it. I love romantic suspense, with an incredible plot, and amazing characters. From the very beginning, I was drawn in, and fell in love with the characters and what they stood for. I knew this series was going to be something special.

Awesome storytelling! Action, adventure, suspense and sex!!

I got really wrapped up in these, involved with the characters and their lives. I had a few issues with some of their decisions, but hey, we all have friends who make bad choices, right? I think the fact that these characters are flawed makes them more believable and relatable.

As an independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock, I give this final episode of the trilogy a firm four fangs for the tears I shed.
