Publisher's Summary

A man who won't trust anyone...

Luca Rossi is a wanted man waiting for justice. On the run from the mafia and hiding out in Florida, the celebrated Italian writer has turned into a recluse, fearful that the next person he sees may also be the last. Waiting in isolation, he counts the days until he can breathe freely again and trusts no one, friend or foe. 

A reporter determined to get to the bottom of the story...

Skylar Shaw is an ambitious young reporter determined to make her name with a scoop - no matter what it takes. Beautiful, curvaceous, and fiery, her outward confidence masks hidden insecurities that push her to investigate - no matter what. 

When a plane spirals out of control and plows deep into the beach opposite Luca's hideout, he rushes out to help a victim. Gone before the authorities can take his name, Skylar soon tracks him down. Her intense curiosity about the mysterious rescuer may lead her down a path from which there is no return. 

Sparks fly as Skylar falls for Luca's exotic Italian accent and chiseled, tattooed body - and Luca finds his natural caution and reserves disarmed by the beautiful reporter. The two soon find themselves entangled in each other's arms - and while Luca tries to keep his secret covered up, Skylar's instincts lead her to dig deeper. What she uncovers brings them both to the attention of dangerous forces.

An intriguing story, but not a lot of sex

I did enjoy the book overall. Once I got over the narrator doing the women’s voices, I was fine.

.Skylar is entranced by Luca despite...

Skylar has worked hard to become a journalist. She has aspirations of writing articles that have relevance. Luca is in Florida, laying low after traumatic events altered his life. With a threat to his life ever present he is perpetually vigilant. A chance meeting between the two will only be the beginning of a dramatic turn of events. Their attraction to one another is visceral, ensnaring in them in passion and burgeoning emotions. Skylar is entranced by Luca despite the fact he is shrouded in mystery and secrets. Luca is enchanted by Skylar but fears he is undeserving of her in his life as danger stalks him. I enjoyed the book, the narration enhancing the story.

A Suspenseful Romance

This tale is about two people who have their own personal demons to deal with while trying to help each other. There's mystery, suspense, longing, loss, romance, steam and some humor. I enjoyed listening to their story and following them on their journey to their HEA. I will be looking forward to the next book in this series. The narration was well done by Matthew Davies, although his female voices could use a bit more difference. I thought he really brought the story to life and helped to make this an enjoyable listen.

Suspenseful and Intriguing!

This is the first book in the Burning Secrets Series. This is a great romantic suspense. The storyline is complex, intriguing and suspenseful. Skylar and Luca are great characters and they share a sizzling chemistry. Matthew Davies did a good job with the narration. I'm looking forward for more books written by this author.

Complex

Dirty Lies by Tamara Lush pulled me in from the beginning. The main characters of Skylar and Luca appealed to me. The storyline is original and full of steam, suspense, and sexy times. Romantic suspense is how I would categorize this book, and I loved it! Matthew Davies did a great job adding to the book with his narration. He gave the characters individual voices and had wonderful accents. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by the author and narrator.

An Easy 5 Stars!

Wow! This was such a good book. It kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning all the way until the end. I loved Luca, the mysterious smooth-talking Italian man, and Skylar, the journalist looking for her next story. Together they had so much sexual tension and chemistry together. This book is full of secrets, intrigue, danger, murder and romance. It is easily a 5 star book in my opinion, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves romantic suspense.

I thought Matthew Davies did a great job bringing all of these characters to life. He did very well with female voices and Italian accents. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Luca and Skylar

Luca, while hiding from the mafia, witnesses a small plane crash on the beach. He rushes to assist any victims (he was the first one on the scene). Skylar, a young reporter, is covering the story hoping to make a name for herself. She goes to Luca's building looking for the person who came to assist where she meets Luca. He sees her try to open the gate and her dress gets caught on it and rips. The start of their relationship begins then with Luca lying to her (she asks a million questions) so she doesn't find out about his past and to try to keep her safe. Bruno is the mafia boss that Luca is hiding from. Analisa is Bruno's cousin and the one who told Bruno about the book Luca wrote about the mafia. Luca's family was killed and he came to the U.S. to hide out at his uncle's estate until things blow over. Unfortunately, Luca had a very short relationship with Analisa and she wants him back after getting out of the mental hospital (she cuts herself). She discovers where Luca is staying. Oh boy, a lot happens in this book – romance, action, and suspense.

Matthew Davis did a good job with the narration. This is my first book by Ms. Lush and it was thoroughly enjoyable. I really like her wring style. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fantastic

This is one of those books that you want to know the end of that you can’t wait to get to it to see how the author is going to put everything together but you don’t want it to end you want to continue living in this world that the author and narrator have built together.

I loved it and this is definitely a re listen type of book well worth a credit
