“How ironic that I found love in the pits of hell...”


This is the first book I read from this author.
A short and quick read. A novella with interesting characters and a suspenseful story that intrigued me and kept me trying to figure out what will comes next.
The story have a fast pace and at times I felt a little confused because of that.
Although I have guessed the plot twist, overall, it was a decent read and I enjoyed it.

Kristen is a one click author for me. I have never been disappointed by her writing as her stories lean towards sexy, contemporary romance with smoking hot sex. Fatal Lies has the smoking hot part down but is a different genre.

This short story kind of starts out in the middle of a thought. It took me a second to settle in and once I did, I was in for a fantastic ride. I'm so glad, because I was afraid that it would be completely out of my wheel house. I enjoyed every minute of it.

This is a fast

Kristen is a new to me author. I liked this book but I did feel a bit confused. Things are explained but not till the very end. This is a short quick read. This book has mystery, danger, romance, and some angst. One the run and not being able to trust anyone after witnessing a murder. Loren doesn’t know who to trust and is missing her life. She had just found and fell in love with a man and now she doesn’t know if she will ever see him again. Not everything is as it seems. Loren will have to dec ...more

This is the first book of Kristen Luciani's that I have read and I loved it. This book will keep you guessing on what is going on and who is on which side. The twists, the turns, the steamy scenes all in one short, quick read. You will not want to put it down. Just when you think you might know what is going on or what is going to happen it changes and you are surprised with the outcome. Great quick read that will not disappoint.

Wow! Fatal Lies was more than I ever expected. The Prologue grabbed my attention and I couldn’t put this down until the very last page. Fatal Lies has suspense, mystery and “on the edge of your seat”, “heart beating fast” anxiousness. I couldn’t believe how much was in this story. I am still reeling from it. This couple has such an intense chemistry but are in grave danger. The suspense alone had me ignoring the world around me. Grab this little thriller of a love story that’s full of amazing wr ...more

Wow! My head is still spinning after this one!! A quick novella that is PACKED full!! I couldn't read it fast enough! The reader is fed little pieces of what's really going on throughout the book, but it's just enough to make you think one thing and then it goes in the opposite direction!!

Great story! Hot, sexy, twists, turns, deceptive and the characters were great! Definitely a book I'd read again and recommend!!

I knew Kristen could write hot short stories but this is her first dark short story and it did not disappoint.

Braxton is he a bad guy or a good guy? You'll find out in the end.

Loren is wanted by the bad men and on the run. Should she trust Braxton to help her?

A dark short dark read that I couldn't put down. Kristen nailed it again.

Kristen is a new author to me and to start off with this books was great. This book is a quick read. It's full of romance, suspense and twists and turns. Braxton and Loren are two amazing characters.

This was a suspense filled and fast paced read! Written in dual pov, yet you still feel like you are missing the whole picture until you reach the end, but that’s a major part of what keeps you frantically turning pages until you realize it’s the end!! Great read and I will definitely read more from this author!

I loved this book. It is definitely different then her other books and I enjoyed it. I would have even enjoyed more to their story. One things for sure, she threw a wrench in there. At least to me, and I'm pretty good and most things.

I highly recommend this book.

New to me author

The story is quick but totally absorbing. Is Brax a good guy or a bad guy? A cop working under cover? A mafia hit man? OMG WTAF

Any hints will be a spoiler...

A great page turner! I didn’t want to put the book
down at all. The storyline has a lot of great twist and turns. The ending is never what I would have expected when I was reading the book, but I was happy to see it end the way it did.

This is my second read by this author, and I was not disappointed. This book a short, fast read, but what you do get is packed with bang. There are so many twists and turns that you don't know what is going to happen next.

With all the suspense and intrigue, tied in nicely is a little bit of sexy time. This is a must read.

This book has so much intense scenes I almost couldn't breathe! Kristen Luciani is fast becoming one of my fave authors! "Fatal Lies" follows you on a heart-racing, non-stop intense ride! Braxton is all alpha and will have you swooning! And I love Loren, she's such a strong heroine! Together these two were dynamite! This story is movie-worthy and I didn't want it to end!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. This is my first book from this author. It's a quick read. A romantic suspense with a HEA ending.
Braxton works for the mafia. He's trying to get out. He wants a quiet life with his girlfriend Loren. But he's had to hide her because the boss wants to sell her in his prostitution ring. Now he has to keep her safe but he just can't stay away from her.
Very good book. Definitely recommend it.
