I put off reading this book for a while because I loved book 1 when I read it. Loved the couple loved the plot but then I read book 2 and it fell flat. I don't know what it was about book 2 but I didn't like the couple didn't like the plot and the bad guy sucked. I was bored that whole read. But I didn't need to worry because Cynthia Eden rocked it out in this one. I loved this book. I loved Sam and Max. Thought they had a great connection and the lust was burning up the pages ...more
“How much is he worth?” The voice taunted. “How much will you pay?”

This author sure knows how to write suspense!
Another winner from the Deadly series, simply a superb book :)

“You knew the rules. You fucked up. It’s your fault. And now, he comes back to you, in pieces.”
A blunt, to the point message from the sadistic serial killer in Deadly Lies, the third installment of the Deadly series by Cynthia Eden.
FBI Special Agent Samantha Kennedy has been to hell and back after being abducted and tortured by a serial killer dubbed “The Watchman” (Deadly Fear). Plagued by constant nightmares of her abduction, Sam has had a difficult time trying to take ...more
Max Ridgeway should have been a distraction, but only one night simply is not enough for either of them. Max doesn't know who Sam really is at first.
5 Stars!GASP…I need air….I don’t think I took a breath while reading this book.
I thought book one Deadly Fear was great. Then ok…can Cynthia Eden do a repeat with Deadly Heat? YES! Alright, what are the chances the third book Deadly Lies can measure up since the bar has been set so high? It jumped right over that bar, because this book was even BETTER! Oh, our quiet, shy, Samantha Kennedy is no longer the victim. She is going to prove that she has overcome the trauma inflicted on her in Dead ...more
For me this was the absolutely best book of this series! I loved everything about this story! It was fast paced, intense, steamy, sweet and it had a hero that was oh so SEXY!
Samantha Kennedy is an FBI agent in the SSD division. We met Sam in the first book in the series, she was kidnapped by the serial killer and forced to go through her worst fear. Now unsure of herself, she is trying to convince her fellow FBI agents that she is ready to handle cases ...more
Deadly lies is the last book (so far, I hope!) of the deadly series and it's just fitting coz the author saved the very best for last (but pls this better not be the last, PLS! *pleads*)
I was riveted from the very first page. The author has the ability to create dark, heart-wrenching, tortured characters. The thriller part of this book was an out of control roller-coaster ride. The whole story was incredible and a puzzle ...more
Cynthia Eden rules.
I love her way of writing, although I am more for first point of view, here the 3rd works perfectly. You get to meet the other characters and hear the bad guys but not too much so they don’t steal the whole book.
But what I love love about Cynthia Eden is her main characters (well mostly, maybe in one or two books it didn’t work for me) but usual ...more
The characters were well developed and the plot moved swiftly along. I almost gave it 5 stars but I did have minor issues with the timing/location of a couple of love scenes. Still, I highly recommend this to lovers of good romantic suspense.
Deadly Lies focuses on SSD FBI Agent Samantha Kennedy. If you’ve read Deadly Fear, then you already know the trauma she suffered at the hands of a cold-blooded serial killer. Sam is desperate to get past the nightmares and fear ...more
Reading this gave me a sense of deja vu because we had some recurring cast from Book 1 Deadly Fear, which I totally forgotten that I had read before. This can definitely worked as a standalone, however, Luke and Monica from Book 1 did took up some page time, so you might not appreciate it as much.
There was a serial kidnapping case that the SSD was handling. Two victims came back after ransom was paid, but those families that refuses to cooperate, their sons were ...more
While this book is fine as a stand-alone, I think it's best if Deadly Fear is read to get the entire story of what happened to her. Sam, still trying to heal from the aftermath of book one, is determined to show the other Serial Service Division members she can handle the pressure. A wealthy self-made Max happens to be Sam's target for a one-night stand. An insane kidnapper also happens to set his target on Max through his stepbrother Quinlan. Soon he finds that Sam isn't being entirely ...more
But there are several issues with this book that make me uncertain I will continue with the series. First, the gore and body count got too high for me. This book will appeal to readers who like g ...more
Samantha Kennedy was abducted, tortured, and killed in Deadly Fear. But she was brought back. Over and over. The killer drowned her and resuscitated her so many times she lost count. In this book, she is back with the SSD, and her latest case is closer than she knows.
In trying to get some form of control back over her life, Sam decides she wants sex with someone who won’t look at her like a victim, or like they’re waiting for her to break. When she sees ...more
Let me tell you, Cynthia Eden knows how to write a hot romantic suspense! Whew!
While Deadly Lies works well as a standalone novel, I do think it would beneficial to read the entire series in order to fully appreciate what Sam has been through, and the reasoning behind certain actions.
One thing I adore about Cynthia Eden, other than her scorching love scenes, is the fact that she doesn’t shy away from ...more
Wow, this series is such a pleasant surprise. I tried book one recently and really enjoyed it, so immediately ordered books two and three. The series gets better as it goes along and this book has been the best of the series so far!
I like the lead gal--the strength/growth she showed in the aftermath of her attack. The plot is full of twists and turns, and the bad guy was a total surprise. Only negative for me is the sex scenes are sometimes a bit mu ...more
Better than average romantic suspense book. The twists and turns of who the actual killer was and if other people were involved kept me guessing. And the romance between the main characters was really done well and believable. Enjoyed this book a lot. ...more
