Ok, WHAT???? 😱
Who the hell finishes a book like that? I don't even know what to do with myself right now... How I will survive until the second book comes out?? 😭

Mackenzie and Madison are twin sisters. While they look the same, Madison is the beautiful, successful favorite daughter... and Mackenzie is the shy, chubby, unsuccessful one - and Madison reminds her of that, whenever possible. 😬
But it all changes when Trent puts his eyes on her… 💜

Kiss Me With Lies by S. M. Soto is one of the most entertaining books I've read all year. I LOVE a good dark, romantic suspense novel, especially when there's a murder mystery involved. Throw in an unreliable narrator, and I'm putty in your hands!

The story sucked me in immediately and wouldn't let me go. It's twisty, perfectly paced, and intriguing. The characters are interesting and mysterious, and the chemistry between them is explosive! The sex scenes are perfection, and the mystery aspect o

After much deliberation and still trying to find myself, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is impossible!! I can’t. I have no words for what I just witnessed as a cliffhanger and quite frankly even I could’ve found them, it would make no damn sense!! Seriously WTF was that?!! Do we check ourselves into a psych Ward until February because you know we’re not going to be ok!!


Kiss Me With Lies is a sexy romantic suspense thriller that will have you guessing until the very end and even then that

Murder? Deceit. Lies. Revenge. Deception and one of the hottest books I've read this year! S.M. Soto is about to take you on one of the wildest and dirtiest rides ever and you will not want to get off!
This book… The sex was hot as hell, I’ll admit that, and despite my issues, I read it in 2 days so that has to count for something too, right? Baz was also an intriguing character - I quite liked him - but man the heroine Mackenzie....

Really, all I could do was shake my head. This book is about an insecure and kinda weak girl who has no clue what she’s doing but does it anyway and is definitely way in over her head.

First, Mackenzie was VERY indecisive. I know, it’s part of the story, love or rev

HOLY SMOKES! I have no words, I am absolutely speechless after reading this book. S.M. Soto penned a phenomenal book that left me begging for more... more than the air I breathe. Kiss Me With Lies is full of angst, drama, secrets and lies. There was never a dull moment, and I literally sat on the edge of my seat trying to read faster and slower at the same time. I needed more, but yet didn't want it to end.

Talk about a cliffhanger!

Kiss Me with Lies has me hooked. A little slow at the beginning but once the chapters started rolling, it all became a blur and I was eating up the words written by this awesome author.

Mackenzie and Baz are 🔥
Incredible chemistry, sensual and so bloody dangerous.

Kiss Me With Lies is without a doubt mysterious, suspesful,thrilling and super sexy.
I for one cannot wait for the second part!

I should know better ... whenever I write RTC there is one thing for sure: that there will no review to come cause my ass forgets it, then after a few weeks my sieve of a brain can't remember all the details and then I can't bother to write a review.

Kiss Me With Lies is the exception. While the details of the book are kinda fuzzy, I still wanted to leave a few words on the book, because what I remembered

SM Soto has done it again. Jam packed with Angst, heat and action - this was a FANTASTIC read.

This is the kind of book that had me flicking back and rereading parts because my mind was coming up with multiple theories about what was happening. I love a book that keeps me guessing!

The chemistry was OUT OF CONTROL & there were moments I wanted to climb Baz like a tree. He's the epitome of a fantastic dirty talker!!

Cannot wait for book 2 - I might have yelled at Soto a few times for leaving me h

WOW! I don’t think I’ve been that on edge while reading a book in awhile. I was hooked right off the bat with the blurb and once I read the prologue there was no going back. I was completely and utterly captivated—this story took ahold of me and didn’t let go for one second. Even still, after I’ve finished reading I’m still holding on because I don’t want to let go. I desperately, and I’m not saying this lightly, but I NEED the next book like I need my next breath. And I’m not even exaggerating ...more

The first-ever thing I have read by this author and my god what a fabulous ride this was.
The first in a romantic suspense duet this was such a twisty and turbulent experience.
I felt so many contradicting emotions both during and after this angry, sad, confused my heart and head fighting a constant battle with what I believed or what might actually be.
Even when the characters here managed to frustrate me so much I felt like screaming at them I still was rooting for them all the same.

Hot damn!!! Kiss Me with Lies started in an explosive way the Twin Lies Duet! This book is so hot, thrilling and mysterious! I love S.M. Soto’s prose and story-telling aptitude and this novel is unquestionably fascinating from start to finish!

Mackenzie and Baz are fire! Their attraction is so palpable and leads to some particularly scorching hot scenes! She’s not his “dirty girl” for nothing! As much as the sexual chemistry is off-the-charts, Makenzie as an agenda

This book was... something else.

This a suspense/dark(?) romance story. It was really entertaining. The plot of the book was so good that I never wanted to stop reading.

This book is about Mackenzie, who attends to her first high school party that is held in the woods and the next morning she finds out that her twin sister has been murdered. Years laters, Mackenzie finds herself determine

This book had me on edge pretty much the whole way through and I don't think I've ever read a book this fast before. On one hand I wanted to savour the story and read slow and take it all in but on the other hand I was flipping through so fast wondering WTH was going to happen next. You know those movies you watch with one eye open yelling at the MC to not do something or to not go in there alone yeah well that is this book.

Dear S.M Soto

I’ve literally just finished Kiss Me With Lies and I’m shaking. I don’t know if it’s because I’m mad at you and that ending, if it’s the adrenaline pumping through my veins at what you’ve just put me through or because I need to throw something.

My heart is beating out of my chest. My head hurts. My breathing is erratic and it’s all your fault.

You’ve made me ignore adulting, eating, drinking and sleeping because your words are just that damn good. I couldn’t put the book down beca

I'm kind of dead after reading this. S. M. Soto better give me book 2 soon because it's been days and I am still not over that ending. Talk about an EPIC cliffhanger!

Kiss Me With Lies was nothing short of a brilliant story... it had everything I crave in a romantic suspense, from an incredible plotline to amazing characters, enthralling secrets and an explosive chemistry between the main characters.

WTF...I need more NOW!!! S.M. Soto nailed this one!

That cliffhanger though....ugh!!! The mystery and suspense is just perfect and highly entertaining. Mackenzie and Baz's chemistry was off the charts. I wouldn't mind being Baz's dirty girl. I am anticipating the final book in this duet.

Kiss Me With Lies by S.M. Soto is a truly EPIC read will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARISTOCRACY!!!

FIVE SUSPENSE STARS for Mackenzie and Baz 💖🖤💖🖤!!!


This is the first book that I've read by S. M. Soto and I'm totally amazed at her writing and this book.

S. M. Soto is one of the new authors to me this year and this won't be the last book that I will read by her.

I absolutely addicted to her writing style which is simple and beautiful.

Her words are the ones that take and keep your attention through the whole book.

I love her storyline.

It was unusual and I didn't expect what will
Whaaat!!!!! Wow...I’m speechless! This is a story like no other. What a wild, suspenseful ride. Mackenzie Wright and her twin Madison couldn’t be any different if they tried. One was the good, quiet girl. The other was the pretty, wild one. They might of not been the closest but they were still sisters...twins. When one event ends in murder can Mackenzie ever get over the loss? 9 years later she still wants to know the truth of what happened to Madison and one discovered photo will be the key to ...more

Kiss Me With Lies is my absolute favorite. AND my Top 5 for 2019

The story kept me glued to the pages. The twists in the plot kept me guessing as to what was going to happen, and a couple of them totally rocked my world!
Talk about unfathomable, agonizing circumstances that will leave your heart pounding and bleeding with unbridled passion.
I was on the edge of my seat until the torturous cliffhanger ending...

Intense doesn’t even cover this book. I bit all my nails off and was pacing constantly while reading this story. Mackenzie is determined and doesn’t care what she has to do to find out the truth. Baz is total hotness overload alpha with secrets but he’s just so smooth and sexy you can’t get him out of your mind! You think one thing then BAM your shocked to your core. The ending has my mouth hung open and I’m sitting here just blown away. I can’t wait for the next book! 5/5 stars

“Can I let go, and let your memory dance
In the ballroom of my mind?
Across the county line
It hurts to love you, but I still love you
It's just the way I feel
And I'd be lying if I kept hiding
The fact that I can't deal
And that I've been dying
For something real.”
