2.5- 3? stars

I would have rated this book higher if this book didn’t have what I hate.
There’s nothing more than I hate when hero calls the heroine a slut in the throes of passion. (I sound like a 70 year old woman) 😂
This hero called the heroine “his nasty little slut and his fuckslut”. Yep, these words ruined everything for me. He only called her the first time they had sex but once was enough for me. No woman should be disrespected ever or even during sex. It felt like I was reading a poor che

Garrett is not an easy man to love. In his defense though, he has been through quiet the traumatic experience. He is so angry and has a terrible attitude. Stefanie has her own demons to work through but together they fight hard to hopefully find their happily ever after!! ❤️
DNF when the heroine gets randomly upset at... nothing. Is this was 2011 I would have loved this book, but my tastes are older and wiser, which means I cant tolerate the "beautifully damaged heroine that doesnt know shes beautiful" trope.
Heroine also reminded me of a kicked puppy. Hero wasnt anything to write home about either.

Garrett can't escape from himself. Survivors guilt and the trauma of serving in the military, not to mention how he has treated his family, torment him. One night after too much alcohol at a dive bar, he allows several punks to beat him up. Lucky for him, a ray of sunshine named Stefanie shows up in the nick of time. Stef can't stop herself, she has to help this guy. When he won't go to the hospital, she takes him home and cares for him. When he sneaks out, she figures that is that. Her past exp ...more

I found this author because she did stories I could relate too because her characters were older and wiser and in situations that involved grown up. I know I know. I stayed with her because her characters had layers, even if it was an insta love read they had to battle for their hea. This series is solidly that and this book, this couple, is a prime example.

Garrett is an ass, well he is a vet and the sole survivor of a roadside bomb, the guy who was in charge and he held his best friend as he d

Book 1 Lie Book 2 Steal Book 3 Cheat
All interconnected Reads that could be read as standalones but you’d miss out on the characters popping up in each book.
Garrett was a bit of a douche in previous encounters in the series and this book shows us why.
He was seriously messed up from the military and still suffers trying to be the man he was, the man he thinks his family want him to be, only that’s all him, his family just want him and are thankful to still have him
Stef is fabulous, seriously fabul

Oh my goodness this book was AMAZING. Such a beautiful love story, but so much more. One of my favorite things about Mayra’s books is that she doesn’t give too much away about her characters until you read their story so it’s not repetitive. I am a big fan of Mayra’s books, but this was definitely my absolute favorite. This book had all the feels. You really got to understand why Garrett and Stefanie’s story and what made them how they were. It was so real. It showed that life isn’t easy but any ...more

Mayra Statham will forever be one of my favorite authors because every single one of her stories is an all consuming read. Her talent keeps growing and Cheat has risen up to my number one favorite of hers.

Garrett Wright is seen in the other two books Lie and and Steal. You won’t really like him those stories but you will be intrigued. And now you’ll get the full understanding of his story. And what an emotional one it is. Stefanie is his perfect match and their interactions will have you swooni

Another amazing book in the Right Men series by Mayra Statham. This is the story of Garrett and Stefanie. Garrett was never one of my favorites from the glimpses we got in Lie and Steal. But I think I fell in love with him in this one! Getting more of his background lets you see why he is the way he is. Stefanie is wonderful. They both have their pasts. I just love them together. I felt the emotion in this book. I cried some, I laughed, I smiled a lot. I was so excited for this book because thou ...more

In the previous books of this series, Lie #1 and Steal #2, Garrett was a total douche. A lost and broken soul who was struggling with inner demons and he was on a path to destruction. Cheat #3 is his and Stefanie's story.

Stefanie was Garrett's ray of sunshine. She was slowly peeling back the layers to reveal the real Garrett. A man filled with guilt due to the military. A man who was afraid to feel. A man who could make you swoon.

Stepfanie had a horrible childhood, but that didn't stop her from

I loved this book. Ive been wanting this one for a while now and it didn't disappoint. I love the characters. I loved the story line. I think these guys are my most favorite couple in a long time.
This is the 3rd book in the series but can be read as a stand alone. It will leave you wanting to go back and see the stories that you missed .
There is NO CHEATING in this book the title comes from a quote at the beginning of the book. "Never Cheat. But if you must, cheat death"

Five freaking beautiful stars.

What a story. Stef has issues, Garret definitely has issues and together they are perfectly broken.

I adored this story. It can be read as a standalone but no way can you really grasp the family of garret without reading the others too. Garret's story starts before Cheat. Stef is kickass and I love her so much too. Who doesn't want some sunshine in their lives.

Now I have to wait for more from this series but I know it will be worth every minute.

Garrett you brooding, selfish man! I want to smack you upside the head just like your gramma Nicola did!
You're lucky Stef was a kickass woman and kept you around.

I love a stubborn, self-depraving man! Garrett absolutely falls into this category, but absolutely redeems himself. I enjoyed reading about Garrett, catching up with the other brothers, and now, waiting for the last "brother's" story!!

Great job Mayra! But what I really want is a story about Stef's BFF Sebastian!

This group of men and their families are amazing! Garrett is a tortured soul but when he meets sassy Stefanie (with an f not a ph) he finds someone not only unafraid to call him on his bs but also someone who sees him, not as who he was before going to war but for who he is now. You have to experience this couple and fall in love with the Wright brothers and of course their give em hell grandma, Nicola.

Wow! Amazing!
No one ever said life was easy or fair. Life certainly wasn't easy for Stefanie but that didn't stop her from living. She fought and struggled for everything she had and came out a stronger person because of it. Life definitely wasn't fair for Garrett but he also never quit living, in fact one might say he cheated death. Though his inner demons still haunted him, he tried not to let them take over. He was drawn to Stefanie, but felt he didn't deserve her. Stefanie also felt a connec

Loved Garrett and Stef's story!
A man stricken with so many demons from his past. An Army medic veteran with survivors guilt.. A strong feisty woman that is also a survivor in her own world. When Garret lets a drunken night in a bar turn into a self inflicted beating by a few local punks a hero steps in to save him.
Stef has no idea why this man is allowing this to happen to himself but she can't shake the feeling that she needs to help.
She takes him in and nurses him back. The realization that

Garrett Wright has come to realize that some of his choices may not have been wise ones. Stefanie Banks is one of those people that will help those that can’t help themselves. She has a man in her life that may not be related to her by blood but that doesn’t stop him from really caring about her. Kip may be a secondary character but he’s very important to the flow of the story.

There’s a scene toward the beginning where Garrett divulges something – it made me feel so sorry for hi

Garrett had already made me so sad for him throughout the rest of this series, so I was happy when he finally met his match in Stefanie. Stef grew up in foster care and has made her life into something safe and stable, but a chance meeting with a broken man who wants to be punished for surviving puts her on the path to so much more. She gives her all over and over and, while Garrett loves her (but can’t say it) and wants to give everything he can in return, the only thing she wants is his love a ...more

Finally!!! Ever since I read Lie I’ve wanted to get my greedy hands on Garrett. No lie I’ve stalked Mayra and every time she announces her next release and it wasn’t Garrett I died a little lol. I can’t help it I’m obsessed with Garrett and his brothers. Damn these Wright Brothers.

Oct 25, 2018 rated it it was amazing
Whilst Garrett's brothers come across as confident and a touch arrogant at times, which comes out in their stories, Garrett is a lot less sure of himself despite the impression he gives.

Garrett has returned from battle as the only survivor of an attack with survivor's guilt and feelings of unworthiness. This results in the destructive behaviours we saw in 'Lie'.

Stef's heart is guarded from issues in her own past and has her own trust issues. She hasn't let her past corrupt her happy personality.

I absolutely loved this latest book in the Right Men Series!! Garrett has a lot of demons after being in the military. As a army medic he has seen a lot and survived things that are unimaginable. He has a lot of guilt from his time over there and tries to drown his demons in alcohol. Stefanie has her own demons as well. She has grown up in the foster care system and has made it her goal to make her life better than her childhood was. They meet by chance one night at a bar....Stefanie was there t ...more

This book took my emotions on a rollercoaster ride and I loved every moment of it! I am forever grateful to my friend for the recommendation because this book dug deep and hit hard.

I LOVED how strong, dedicated and determined Stef was. Her back story was enough to make most people give up and turn to the darker side of life, but not Stef...she went out and shined!

Garrett was battle scarred inside and out and his self doubt and hate was getting the better of him...but h

Garrett intrigued me from book one. He was a bit of a douche in book one but began to redeem himself, in my opinion, in book two. So when I saw that he was getting his own story, I was mega excited!

Garrett was an army medic, and is suffering from mega survivors guilt throughout this story. My heart broke for him and the things he must have seen. Stefani grew up in care, with pretty much nothing to her name. She is younger than Garrett but from the beginning you can see she is exactly what Garret

I have waited so long for this book and I must say it was more than I anticipated. Garret the older brother in the Wright series is the one you have always been rooting for but didn’t think he would succeed. He’s the brooding one that you never thought would have his HEA. Too many demons having been chasing him but one rescue from a woman who you would have not seen stumbled into his life. Stefanie has her own demons in life never once thi

In book one, I hated Garrett. Then he redeemed himself.

In book two, I began to fall for Garrett. I wanted to heal him myself.

In book three, I fell head over heels for Garrett. I never wanted this book to end.

Mayra, the weaver of words, told the kind of story you should never pass up. Between Stef and Garrett, my heart filled with so many emotions. I've thought about this book multiple times a day and relived their story two already.

Garrett is the kind of man I want to write. He's an asshole wit

This is Garrett and Stefanie's story. Garrett is the oldest Wright brother, he is an ex soldier suffering from PTSD and Stefanie is his ray of sunshine who has her own issues from the of two she had been bounced around from foster home to foster home. Garrett is my favorite brother. This one was emotional. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. Loved reading the ups and downs of their relationship as it develops. Can't wait to read Donnie and Gaby's story.
