This is the author's first book and its a 3 book story. I read this book on Kindle Unlimited.

This is Jackson and Skylar's story. This is a story of a couple that fall in love and a young woman who did not tell her love one very simple truth about herself that starts a roller-coaster of a drama in both their lives. The ramifications of her simple omission will continue to hurt their lives and those they love for years to come.

This was a engrossing read. It has all the elements that make up a grea

Wow! This was extremely well-written. Usually I don't need to read about the past but at about 65% I want to know why Jackson was so "broken" for a better word. I've already obtained Book 2. It will be read by end of the week. Oh that Jackson! He made me laugh.

The first thing I have to say about this book is OMG what an awesome book this is. The book is a real page turner. I had a little bit of problem to get into the story but after a chapter, I was stuck. The books has everything you can wish for, passion, deception, betrayal, romance and suspense. The mix of everything makes this book so good and makes me emotional. I did feel so much when reading the book, I laughed and I cried.

I must say that this book is very well written and when I found out t

Shelves: terrible
This book was Overdramatic, boring, and the characters were condescendingly dumb airheads and far too scripted to feel any connection to either of them.

Both characters Jackson and Skylar had no chemistry. Jackson gets off as a psychotic, abusive, dysfunctional jerk. Skylar had no spine and even when she thought she had one it came off lethargic and pathetic.

This book is ludicrous and the relationship between these two supposedly adults was very unhealthy especially when they Jackson tried to be

OMG, This book was so good!

I could not put it down. Gosh, but my heart just bleeds for Skylar, Jackson and Sutton. They worked so hard to adjust to each other as a family. Jackson was so afraid not being hurt again. He carried that hurt for fifteen years. Skylar was the only woman he ever loved and never let another woman get close to him. Skylar was so in love with Jackson, it affected her marriage. Just when they are coming to terms with being in each other's life again...BOOM... the crazy ex

This is my review and how I see it. In Deceived author, Samyah Leighton explores different points of view. Jackson Delaney and Skylar Deveraux were once young lovers torn apart by a lie. With the death of his brother, Jackson learns some 'truths' that will in some way bring him and Skylar back together.

This book is a grab you by the seat of your pants page turner. What you think will finally happen with this couple will leave you shocked. Skylar's ex-husband does not want to let her go and he w

So, this is my first time reading anything by this author and I’m glad I did. It was great, I really enjoyed every minute of this read. The author had me on my toes every step of the way. I thought I would have a bad case of whip lash from this story from all the twist and turns!
Skylar is a successful business owner who has secrets from her past stride right in her front door.
This couldn’t have come at a worst time. She has others things in her life that need to be tied up and started. However,

Ok I loved this book, just the right amount of everything for me.

First off this book was one heck of a roller coaster ride. I wanted to pop a calm yourself down pill in Jackson's mouth. LOL

Skylar is a real estate broker that made a life for herself in L.A. But that was only after she suffered a lot of heartache. She was in love with Jackson and that kept her from loving anyone else..She became pregnant with Jackson's child. After dealing with his "father" she gave up custody to her daughter. But there is a huge

Mixed Feelings

This is a new author for me and this book was highly recommended. While I truly loved Skylar and Jackson's story; I was equally irritated with the characters at times.

I found Jackson somewhat selfish, domineering and overbearing at times. Even though he has been hurt by people he loved, his behaviour was cruel for the most part.

Skylar was too submissive, even though I know it was fueled by guilt. Chris, I just didn't like him at all, he was too controlling. With that being said, I

WOW what an emotional roller coaster this book will take you on. I loved it. I was hooked from the beginning and left wanting oh so much more at the end. It has it all Suspense, heartbreak, lies, betrayal, secrets, and romance. the plot twists and storyline will have you hooked.

Jackson and Skyler shared a past. Lies broke them apart but they also brought them back into on another's lives. You get to see how they heal and move on from some lies but you are still left wondering what the hell Skyl

Intriguing

This was a really great read. There's so much going on you'll be reading till the end just to see what's going to happen. I'm glad book 2 is out now, so I don't have to wait to see what occurs or is going to happen. To read how Skylar, Jackson and Sutton go through the situation they are in was interesting. I recommend this book if you like stories with lots to discover.
