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 Netgalley.com, 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

Damn I loved this book!
CJ and Tara are one hot couple, but also so passionate and loving and at times carefree. Their chemistry was instant, intense and off the charts! It's hard to decide what character of M. Never's I love most. But regardless CJ and Tara are definitely up there.
I love Tara's spirit. I love that she embraces her sexuality and isn't afraid to ask for what she wants, to be adventurous. I also love how she loves fiercely and fully.
CJ...ugh how can you now love this man. He charmi

4.5 'Love is truly a strange and powerful thing' Stars

“Have you ever made a decision you believed to be the right one, only to regret it in the end? Have you ever walked a path that seemed adventurous at first, only to find out it was perilous instead? I’m not a stupid girl. I knew what I was getting into. I took a risk thinking there would always be a way out because that is what I was led to believe. But I understand now you can’t always see the forest for the trees. You can be blindly enchant

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)

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

Explosive Hot Romance!!!!!

I listened to this on Audible and I love Muffy Newtown and Sam Crowley performed amazingly!
I really enjoyed CJ and Tara's story the most. CJ lives and works in Hawaii with Kane and Jett. Ellie is Tara's sister, Eliie is married to gorgeous alpha male Kane!
A few months ago Tara met CJ at a wedding in Hawaii and they had a hot sexual one week fling. But, CJ can't get his mind off of her. He takes a surprise trip to NY to see Tara, and OMG!! The chemistry, the sexual attr

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..

ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was my first book by M. Never and it's a spinoff from another series so I did feel like I was missing a bit of information, however, that did not detract from me enjoying the storyline. In fact, I now want to go back and read the first three books since the main characters from those books made appearances in this book and left me intrigued to learn Kayne and Ellie story.

As for this story with CJ and Tara, I didn't get to see thei

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

Raw, real, DIRT as hell, sexy, caring, loving, twists and delicious turns I didn't see coming, yeah, this was mind-blowing beautiful and I am now hooked on Author M.

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.

Gah, I loved that sentence that was used throughout the book. Tara Stevens is the younger sister of Ellie, and CJ works with Kane. These two hit it off in Hawaii and the feelings and thoughts never seemed to go away. CJ goes to visit Tara to get her out of his system once and for all. The chemistry between these two is Crazy like catch on fire, I don't understand how they can walk, it's very intense. Instead of getting tired of one another the feelings grow stronger until CJ find

Tara and CJ..... I opted for the audiobook because of time and the narrators. The narrators are fabulous and I absolutely LOVE listening to them!

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
