This series just keeps getting better. I loved getting pieces of the past and trying to put together what happened. Araneae is testing her limits with Sterling and he is just as alpha as ever. Of course the ending leaves you wanting more.. I am so ready for Promises.
“You’re gorgeous on your knees.”

Another sexy, seductive, and thrilling installment to Aleatha Romig’s Web of Sin series! Just when you think this dark and angsty game of cat and mouse is coming to a head, you turn the corner and find yourself in another web of lies, deception, and secrets. Lies, the second book in this delicious dark romance series, may be bringing Sterling and Araneae closer together, but it’s also bringing about more twists and turns than ever before. I absolutely loved it!

An absolutely riveting read!
Lies is so freaking engrossing and captivating!
I loved every single minute I was living in the pages of this gripping book.
It’s filled with suspense,intrigue and a whole lot of sexiness.
Araneae is my girl!
So sassy and feisty.
Sterling is still as alpha as ever!
He’s determined to protect his woman by any means necessary.
Even though things are slowly starting to be revealed the mystery continues and is intensifying.
An absolutely thrilling read!

5 “The Web Continues to Grow” Stars

The second book in the Web of Sin trilogy did not disappoint. It started where Secrets left off and while we got some much needed answers, it it was still packed full of more secrets and more lies. I loved every minute of this delicious, suspenseful, intriguing, sexy ride.

As this tangled web gets more convoluted, trust becomes key to survival. Araneae gets immersed into Sterling’s life. Patrick, Reid and Lorna are all a package deal with Sterling and she must t

As secrets are being uncovered and lies are being revealed, Araneae and Sterling are being drawn closer and their chemistry is burning hotter. I can't get enough of Sterling and his commands, demands and orders. I'm not sure if I'd tolerate his behavior in real life, but dang does the author make it work in this story!

Can. Not. Get. Enough. Of. Him!!

Here's the thing: as much as I'm enjoying the heck out of this trilogy, this particular book had Araneae rubbing me the wrong way. I'll tell you why

Spoiler free review but it will be hard!

First thing first: this is the sequel of Secrets and is meant to be read after Secrets.

Second this is Aleatha turning dark so not her sweet and light side.

Third you have a huge *yes you can interpret this as you want 😉* overbearing and commanding Alpha Sterling Sparrow.

We ended secrets with a cliffy and of course we will end Lies …with a cliffy! Again.

The good news is that Aleatha don’t need years to publish her b
“Never in my entire life had I met anyone as exasperating, infuriating, or as maddening as Sterling Sparrow. He set off my last nerve, pushing me like I’d never been pushed. The way he’d stared at me when he’d first entered the kitchen made me feel as though he needed me. He’d done something—something I would probably never know—and I was his relief or maybe reward. I wasn’t sure exactly what I was, other than in that moment I believed that he saw me in the way a person saw the one he cared abou ...more

LIES has it ALL--twists, turns, intrigue, and a whole lot of SEXY! Get ready to lose a day because you won't be able to put this book down!

Sterling Sparrow continues to be the stubborn, asshole alpha we fell in love with in LIES. He's doing everything he can to control Araneae, his feisty love, but don't worry--that smart, sassy businesswoman fights right back, and the sparks that fly between these two might set your Kindle on fire... lol!

Oh wow, this series is getting better and better, and that is saying something because the first book already blew my mind... but Lies? 

As Araneae gets more revelations, the web of Lies also tightens around her. She eventually learns more about her family and yet the well of intricate secrets seems bottomless. Aleatha Romig is a queen when it comes to writing amazing and suspenseful plots. Lies feels like a strategy game you would play blind. Who are your adversaries? Their end game? What are ev

Lies..lies..lies everywhere, who to believe and who's lying ?
The jury is still out because as is true with book two in a trilogy, the story progressed but towards an unknown destination and even though you know more than book 1, you still don't know enough to justify any characters' actions.
Araneae McCrie is stuck in a spider's web of lies and deceit.
Somehow, unimaginably, I had become a woman who’d been sucked into a world she didn’t understand.

A brilliant story from a masterful mind. This series isn't called Web of Sin for nothing.
Be ready for Sterling, because I'm here to tell you, that if you thought book one tilted your mind. Sent it into a tailspin. You haven't read anything yet.
Once again, I've been Athean'd, and it was well worth blowing my mind.

4.5 Stars

Well oh well…like sand through an hourglass… So are the days of Sterling and Araneae. These two are meant for each other. They truly are <3 I love the way they both care so much for each other.

However, is the caring and loving a truthful relationship or as the title suggests, are they all Lies? I so much want to believe that what we are going through with this couple is a good relationship ready to move on to their next step…

Just like in the first book, Lies hits the ground running and takes you on another crazy ride. Questions will be answered. Chemistry will be off the charts.

Lies is the second book in the Web of Sin series. This book must be read after Secrets (book 1) as it is a continuing story.

This book is dark, it has a lot of suspense, but it is also very sexy.

I am still really unsure how I feel about Sterling. I don't really like the way he tells people what to do. He has a caring side. But he is also vicious.

The best part of this book for me was the last part. There were so many twists and turns. There was so much happening. I was completely riveted and could

Woah, If you thought book one was good just wait to get your head into this one.

Lies is the second book in the Web of sin Trilogy. You have to read secrets book 1 first.

Lies has my head spinning it has really blown me away I thought I had an idea where this story might be going but now I am like who is telling the truth and who is lying. This one is hot and full of twists that are going to have your head all over the place. So good. I have so many questions that I am sure are going to be answere

Sterling Sparrow and Araneae McCrie’s fiery relationship and titillating chemistry continues with Lies, where even more lies, secrets and deception are unveiled and surfacing. In this sequel, more information regarding Araneae’s life is discovered, but there’s still plenty of mystery and intrigue surrounding this woman's unique existence.

Aleatha Romig pulls us further into Chicago’s deep, dark and dangerous underworld—a world that Sterling is desperate to keep Araneae away from. No one is trustw

Araneae and Sterling are so intense and amazing and tangled in so many ways; some of which I am sure Aleatha has yet to reveal.

Araneae struggles to adapt to her new life in Chicago with Sterling, yet she can’t deny their connection. Learning more and more about him and his need to keep her safe is as challenging as learning about her family.

Sterling will go to any length to protect Araneae. Now, with more layers of the web untangled, we begin to question: is he protecting her, or himself?
