The fabulous New York Times and USA TODAY best-selling New Adult author returns with a sizzling, funny, and deeply emotional tale of passion and secrets, deception and forgiveness. A matter of secrets...Undercover cop Logan "Kash" Ryan can't afford a distraction like his new neighbor Rachel Masters, even if she's the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. To catch a serial killer, he needs to stay focused, yet all he can think about is the feisty, long-legged coed whose guarded nature intrigues him.
A matter of lies...Deceived and hurt before, Rachel would rather be a single, crazy cat lady than trust another guy, especially a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy with a Harley, like Kash. But when his liquid-steel eyes meet hers, it takes all of Rachel's willpower to stop herself from exploring his hot body with her own.
A matter of love...As much as they try to keep it platonic, the friction between them sparks an irresistible heat that soon consumes them. Can Kash keep Rachel's heart and her life safe even as he risks his own? Will she be able to forgive his lies...or will she run when she discovers the dangerous truth?

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
I love a book with all my favorite qualities!! Love, sex, suspense, angst, witty banter, smexy times with a tattooed lip ring wearing alpha god, and of course pancakes & sour patch kids all wrapped in one beautifully written package! The book really sucked me in until the very end. However, I wasn't happy to find a BIG fat cliffhanger!! A cliff-hanger that left me wanting the next book immediately! Anyways, moving forward...
Rachel is in her last yr of collage trying to overcome a traumatic experience when she meets her new neighbor. Logan ‘Kash’ is working undercover with his partner Mason, when a case goes bad they find themselves in Austin working a new case with new identities. On this new assignment he and his best friend /partner Mase have to catch a serial killer and they need to stay focused, but all he can think about is the feisty, long-legged coed who lives across the hall. She's the most beautiful woman he's ever seen hands down and all attitude but he loves it. Kash & Rachel start off with a rocky friendship that quickly turns to love. But they are both keeping secrets, and those secrets could tear them apart. The plot was paced very well. I loved Rachel and Kash together, they were adorable. The pair just clicked and they made a perfect couple. It was obvious that there feelings for each other were growing stronger by the day. So, if you want a romantic, yet suspenseful book that will make your heart pound, than this one is for you! Can't wait to tackle book 2 "Deceiving Lies" next!!
Very very predictable, way to much fluff and I know it's a story but so unbelievable. If you best friend doesn't believe you when you tell her something this important then she is not you friend and you don't just understand and continue on like nothing happened! It just felt rushed and I couldn't by it. Big eye rolls until I just stopped listening about an hour before it was finished.
I liked that protective side of the story and that not everything was as predictable as I thought originally.
There were a lot of twists in the story, although I kept finding myself predicting what was about to happen, not everything happened the way I thought it would.
I like the way they portrayed the story and how even with just their voices, I felt a connection between the two of them.
I liked the way they first met, it was different but very likable. I always like the stories where two people meet and it's not the whole "love at first sight" kind of story.
Overall it was a great book and I even read the next book as well.
Warning has cliffhanger...but other than that...awesome story! Loved this book and audio production! Loved the different voices cast for the male and female leads. Loved it.
I was not expecting that ending! I loved the book and the connection between the two characters but I don't think I will be getting the next book because of how it ended. That is why I only gave four stars.
Lots to love.
1. Two ages -in college and out of college.
2. A great story with twists and turns and action.
3. A great romance.
4. A great humor. Loved the nickname "sour patch".
5. Great strong characters.
6. Great writing.

8. Even though it was a cliff hanger, the second book was out with the first and didn't have to wait so long I forgot what the first was about.
