The continuation of Men of Summer series by Lora Leigh and I don't think this could be read as a standalone. In the previous, Wicked Lies Grace Maddox and Zack Richards already made appearance and now this is the time for their own story.
After the betrayal of Lucia Maddox, Grace was terrorized and hurt by unknown enemy. Considering the person as the accomplice of her mother's crime, Grace become the main witness. Zack knows what happened with the Maddo ...more

I love Ms. Leigh's books, and I really wish I could give it more stars.
Zack has loved Grace (even though he won't admit it) since they were kids. Their romance was great and boy were they hot together. That part of the story I loved.
It was the rest of the story that made me loopy and there were just too many people being introduced that had no real purpose. I'm still not sure who the bad guys are. I mean I know their names and their relationship, but who are these people ...more
I haven’t read the previous books so I was a little lost sometimes but I really liked Grace and Zack’s story.
Let me just say that the title didn’t promise too much. There was a lot of deception and secrets in this story and I wouldn’t wish a family like Grace’s on anybody. Zack was the only one who really seemed to care about her feelings and I loved how he protected her with everything he had.
Dirty Little Lies was an enjoyable, susp ...more
I would highly recommend reading these books in order. I hadn't realized this was book 3 in a series. I believe they are all standalone books, but there are so many players to this story that I had to go back and re-read some sections to get people straight in my mind.
Despite that, this book was so intriguing to me. All the conspiracy going on and trying to put pieces to the puzzle together made this a really enjoyable read. I'm actually a little bummed that when I go back to book 1, ...more
THE HEART HAS ITS SECRETS.

She’s innocent, beautiful, and has quickly become the one shining light in his dark, desperate world. The only woman worth fighting for…and dyin ...more

The one main part that I couldn't get past was trying to understand how everyone fit into the story line. There were far too many characters including several who had very minor parts. I kept trying to understand how Zack fit into the different families. At one po ...more

The Kin and the Agency have a problem that could cause a break in their longstanding association. They are the secret second line of defense for this country against terrorist invasi ...more
Hmm, not sure about this one.
The beginning...awesome!. Dirty Little Lies was a steamy and intense read. I expected nothing less from Lora Leigh. Grace and Zack were great together. I liked their romance, even if Zack was a little too alpha sometimes and Grace a little too weak. But they oddly worked for me in the end, even with all the bumps between. They gave each other the strength they needed.
I loved all the secrets and mysteries slowly revealed as the story wen ...more
Zack and Grace's passion for one another was the biggest highlight of the story for me. Zack m ...more

I love Lora Leigh. I always expect to be entertained and see some sexiness. This book was tough for me. I didn't read The Men of Summer books, so it left me with a bit of confusion as I read. I definitely didn't get the standalone feeling from it and kept feeling like I was missing bits and pieces.
Even though I had some confused moments, the story itself was still smoking hot and definitely suspenseful. Grace and Z ...more
This is the 3rd book in the series and I don't think it should be read as a stand alone. It's not the best in the series. Although we are dealing with a different couple with Zack and Grace, it continues the mystery from the previous books. Even though I read all the books, I was still confused as far the Kin and the workings of the people involved. There are a lot of family members and agents and things just got really confusing. This may have distracted me from t ...more
Ok, back to the storyline. Ok read. It had potential; after all, the author wrote many awesome novels. As usual, this book had some hot scenes and over the top alpha-male. Also, a strong-willed h, although I didn't like her much. She constantly wallowing in self-pity: no matter how close her consins and she were, she always thought they didn't see her as real sister. And the complaint was on and on.

It's been a few years since I've read a Lora Leigh book, and so I wasn't sure what to expect, I guess the best way for me to say it is that if I was reading this book as my first book by her I would say I thoroughly enjoyed it. But having said that, I have to say she still following her formula, that I guess works for her but I would wish she would break. She had a wonderful way with words, but I get tired of the same thing of Zac ...more
