Tell me a secret...

CJ Carmichael hasn't been able to get the vivacious blonde he spent four delirious days with off his mind. The blonde who was completely off-limits, but he couldn't deny.

Tell me a secret....

CJ had no intention of pursuing her, but Tara Stevens knew what she wanted and it was him. Now six months later, their time together still haunts him. As much as h

I’ve got a girl crush, or that’s what I’m singing while I’m typing this! I’m hard core crushing on M Never, as I can’t decide who is my favorite alpha, hardcore, sexy piece of man candy she writes. But I reserve the right to decide until Jett’s book (because really, he doesn’t know it, but he’s my MAN!). Until then CJ, I FLOVE you! Your badassness, hardcore loving, sweet and tender side, and never say die attitude is my kind of man! Tara is sweet, hardcore and determined to take care of herself ...more
*** I received a complimentary ARC of this book from the publisher, through, in exchange for honest feedback. ***

Although 'Lie With Me' is part of the 'Decadence After Dark' series, it could easily be read as a standalone. Having read the earlier books in the series provides some background details and information about the secondary characters, but wasn't crucial to understand this story. That being said, it is hard not to compare this book to earlier books in the series if you ha

I wanted this book. It was so hot that I almost needed to turn on the a/c. Then I got to 60% and said what the feathers is going on. I about put it down at that point, but I needed to see how it ended. Once you get past that revelation it's back to amazing. I was just in utter shock.

CJ and Tara sure could burn up some sheets, and windows, and floors, and counters. I don't think anything was safe from these two. There was great stuff outside of the sex too. A seriously deme

Two stars is kind of generous, tbh. A big disappointment. *Mild spoilers for earlier books in this series.*

I still can't exactly wrestle my feelings for Owned, this first book in this series. It was beyond frustrating, and infuriating. I can't tell you how many times I hit rage mode. There were some shitty issues with consent and that's putting it pretty damn mildly. It feels like it wants to be erotica, but I can't shelve it as such. (view spoiler)

Omg, I love this author. I swear this is the best kinky series, every. Like Every.

If you like kinky dominate dirty talking men, then you need to read these books. A fabulous plot and kick ass heroines are just a bonus!!!

4 heated and wicked stars. CJ and Tara have some seriously hot sex. Their sexual appetites are incredible and it is mind boggling. I loved it! Furthermore, I loved that while they were always ripping each other's clothes off, there was still a story to be told and feelings to be developed and understood.

CJ had a fling with Tara hidden away from prying eyes. He wasn't supposed to be with her but he couldn't help himself. He also wasn't supposed to still be hung up on her but he was. After a nice

Właśnie zakończyłam przygodę z tą serią i powiem jedno pomimo tego że temat już powielał się w wielu seriach jakie czytałam to składam hołd przez autorką że potrafi tak dozować emocje że nie sposób się oderwać, ja po domu chodziłam wszędzie z czytnikiem a ostatnią część czytałam od 2 w nocy do rana aż skończyłam wtedy na moment zamknęłam oczy, ale niestety rodzinka nie jest wyrozumiała na mój nałóg i musiałam wstać , co teraz płacę ogromnym bólem głowy ale nie żałuję ani minuty spędzonej z Tarą ...more

M. Never has not once disappointed me with her writing. She writes such luxuriously sexy books that you will have a hard time wondering where she gets her ideas for some of the scenes. This book felt different to the rest,but that is good as we are dealing with other characters than in the previous books. So when a night of sexy decadence with a hot partner is finished and you meet up again could it be as good as you hoped for? Well for CJ and Tara it can be, but the problem with these encounte ...more

Lie with Me to 4 część serii Decadence after Dark.. Podobnie jak 3 poprzednie, ta również przypadła mi do gustu..

To historia CJ'a , przyjaciela Kayne'a, który był bohaterem poprzednich części oraz Tary, siostry żony Kayna.
Tych dwoje łączy tak niesamowita chemia, że mimo różnicy wieku i innych przeciwności, po prostu nie mogą o sobie zapomnieć..

It is excellent addition to this series. I could not put this book down. CJ and Tara’s age difference may bring some issue but not enough to keep them apart. They both have secrets that can ruin the relationship. CJ is sexy in every way and Tara a spitfire. I was not expecting this story to have so much excitement and drama. I thought CJ was quiet and reserved but he has a dark side that I loved! CJ fit right in with Kayne and Jett he loves fiercely and he’s loyal. M. surprised me with Tara’s st ...more

Lie with Me (Decadence After Dark #4) by M. Never was absolute perfection. If I could give more than 5 Stars, I would in a heartbeat! This book had every single element that I love in a story all the while pulling my heart and head in so many directions.

Received a review copy through NetGalley.

This was a great addition to the Decadence After Dark series. I loved the first three books there were centered around Ellie and Kayne's love life. Now with the next two books we get insight on their friends and family members. M. Never has an extraordinary way with combining abuse with the worlds or BDSM and prostitution that really grips me from beginning to end. I can always sit and read her books in a day. Phenomenal erotic writer.

Another fantastic book by M Never.
I really enjoyed the decadence after dark series and I absolutely loved this edition to it.
CJ and Tara are made for each other and it really shows in this book.
It was also nice to catch up on other characters.
This story was very entertaining and definitely kept you on your toes with all the plot twists going on.
I am now eagerly awaiting book 5 in the series as I need to know what's going on with Jett and London.

I love this series, it has so much passion, suspense, drama and it just keeps you focused solely on the book itself. I just couldn't see myself doing anything other than finish reading this fabulous book.

CJ can't seem to focus on anything or anybody but that luscious woman named Tara. That time he had with her when she was in Hawaii was unforgettable for both of them and now neither one can focus on anything other than be thinking about each ot

If you are a fan of Dark Erotica, BDSM, Kink, a steam up
your glasses story then you are in for a treat.
Lie with Me offers all of the above.

The fourth book in the Decadence Series gives us CJ and Tara's story.
Be prepared to be pleasured, aroused and held captive till the end
as CJ is all alpha and thoroughly pleasing.

Four days with Tara was all it took and memories of her were
permanently seared in CJ’s thoughts, dreams and cock.

She may be younger and off limits but flashbacks of Tara’s hot and

So disappointed. So when I read the first three Decadence After Dark books I was in heaven: glorious dub con, a sexy asshole alpha Dom, gorgeous over-the-top anal, first time ever getting wet reading f/f, by the third book the m/f/m/f was so fucking exciting, good story, well written. The bar was super high. I know.

I get to the fourth book. So incredibly excited, then I find myself slogging through vanilla fucking mush for, like, half the fucking book. But then! LO! I think all my heartbreak is

LIE WITH ME was really good. It stands strong against the previous three books and makes its own impression in a much smaller package.

CJ and Tara both have secrets. Of course we know CJ’s is his job, but for Tara is it something that could destroy them.

When CJ visits for a weekend, he doesn’t expect not to be able to leave, but when he gets on his private plane, he finds he’s not through with Tara after all.

Now, CJ and Tara try to navigate a relationship. They’ve admitted to the feelings, it’

This book was really good! CJ Carmichael is HOT, passionate, adventurous and wild about Tara. Tara is strong, sexy and willing to accept any challenge CJ presents because she is also wild about CJ. But they both are hiding some pretty big secrets and one of the secrets may ruin their relationship before it even begins. Adding to the equation are the number of people who don't approve of CJ and
