4.5 stars! This story starts off with a bang, and it doesn't stop there! I really liked the plot and thought it felt unique and fresh. I really liked the characters as well and thought Paige and Carter were great together. I particularly liked Carter - he was a strong hero but not overly alpha. My two small complaints that deducted half a star: I would have loved a touch more romance, and the ending seemed to wrap up just a little too neatly for my taste. Overall, I really enjoyed it! ...more

The title of the book caught my attention. The word reflection has many different meanings. Miriam-Webster Dictionary lists nine different meanings. When I read the title I had several different ideas flash through my head as to the meaning of the title. The book is the fourth in the Behind Closed Doors: Family Secrets series and I did not find it to be any problem that I had not read any of the others. The beginning of Chapter Two put a big smile on my face when Carter got a text saying ‘PROTE ...more

Being new to both the series and the author, I was not sure what to expect . Once finished, I was glad I gave them both a try.
The story belongs to Paige Coker and Carter Oakes.
Paige grew up in high society, with parents that loved her. One strong father and a mother that was a little delicate emotionally but whose love was just as strong. Carter , a former lifeguard whose past has made him the man he is today, is a Guardian Agency protector.
When Paige is a suspect to a murder, Carter is assigned
Nikki Brooks
A very different hero than what we're used that's not a bad thing at all. Carter is a breath of fresh air. He's a former lifeguard, not SF/law enforcement anywhere in his history. So he feels more relatable in a way, like someone you could just randomly meet.

Paige could have been the cliched rich-b%^&h socialite but she is far from it. She sees the good in everyone and she acknowledges that not everyone had the same opportunities in life as she had and she doesn't seem to ram her good fo

Oh, how I enjoyed this story, it was just what I needed and wanted to enjoyably escape for a few hours.
The Guardian Agency stories are some of my favorites because there is the perfect balance between the love story and danger and suspense. They are shorter in length and have rescued me from many reader-slumps over time.
Carter Oakes is a smart, kind, and considerate gentleman, who protects and solves problems for a living, and can be tough and rough if the job requires it. And Paige Coker can

Having only read this one in a series, I enjoyed it. It was well written and while I was not surprised at the track it took, I was glad it had a happy ending. It had such potential the other way that it would not have been a shocker.

Paige is a society princess with everything going well at the moment. She goes out of her way to help mother. She loves her father. Everything is good...

Until it is not... Then her friend is dead. Who has done the deed? According to the authorities and the footage...

I absolutely loved this book which deals with lots of different scenarios for the well written characters. Paige is a society heiress loved by all and she is a genuinely kind and caring person. She is accused of murdering her close friend and the video evidence is very compelling and clearly shows her at there at the time of the murder and touching the victim. But she wasn’t there so how is that possible. Carter Oakes is the private investigator hired via the Guardian Agency to look into what ha ...more

This is an exciting tale that will literally grab your attention from the very first chapter. It’s got unexpected twists, life threatening danger, and elements of family drama that all surprisingly lead to a sweet HEA. Paige’s and Carter’s characters fit so well together that the narrative flows effortlessly, and you’ll be captivated by the charming warmth in their relationship. From the start you are on their side and willing to be totally immersed in their story. All the characters are well dr ...more

Deadly Reflections by Regan Black is the fourth book in the Behind Closed Doors: Family Secrets series which are five stand alone books by five top romantic suspense novel authors that get together every so often to put mini series together for their readers.
This was one of my favorite books in this series. It grabbed me from the start and held me from the end. I loved Paige the rich girl, who really was not a spoiled brat and Carter, the former lifeguard turned bodyguard, match up beyond word.

"Light", that's what Carter thought of Paige when he met her, as he considered himself dark, so should he even be thinking about something more? Iron clad video evidence shows Paige at the scene of a murder, so how can Carter help her? Questions, even before this terrible incident happened were plaguing Paige's mind and how can she tell anyone about her thoughts now that she is being accused of murder?

While planning her father's retirement party, she comes across a picture of her father with another woman who she looks like.

Deadly reflections by Regan Black is the 4th book in the Behind closed doors, family secrets series.
It can be read as a standalone but the first two books are very good so you wouldn’t want to miss them. All books in this series are written by different authors.

Interesting characters, great plot with a lot of twists and turns and suspenseful.

Regan Black has done it again. Action, suspense,some laughter, a few tears and some romance. Those are all the things I found and more when reading Deadly Reflections. The first evening with the book, I read about 70% of it in one sitting. I didn't get to finish, because I had to get some sleep. The rest of the book did not disappoint. Love Regan's writing and look forward to more.

This was an ARC I was lucky enough to get. All she wanted was an honest opinion. So there you have it.

Deadly Reflections is the 4th book in the series Behind Closed Door: Family Secrets. This was a awesome read it pulled me right in and kept me turning the pages until the very end. I would certainly recommend this book to others. I received an ARC of the ebook from one of the other authors in the series and was under no obligation to leave a favorable review. All opinions expressed here are my own.

Paige is planning a surprise party for her fathers retirement when she comes across information that rocks her world. She then becomes the prime suspect in a murder. Someone doesn’t want Paige to find out what her Father is possibly hiding. Carter Oakes is hired to protect Paige and his Agency is investigating the murder. I guessed part of the story but I still enjoyed the characters and the story. Thank you to the author for an advanced readers copy.

This is the 4th book in the series but it isn't necessary to read the others to follow this thrilling suspense. The story includes mystery, murder, family drama, and romance. The characters are well-developed and believable. I love how Paige Coker and Carter Oakes work together to save Paige from going to prison for a crime she didn't commit. I love the storyline and wonderful characters. Regan Black pens another awesome story. ...more

Once again Regan Black has done it. The reader is drawn into intrigue, suspense, romance, and loyalty through twists and turns that keep you reading it to the end. There are tears near the end as family bonds are being created. I was mesmerized with the story and couldn’t stop reading as Carter and Paige worked their way from the beginning to the end.
