Publisher's Summary

DEA Agent Colby Vincent is working an undercover assignment in which homeless veterans are being used to deal drugs. She's forced to work without the support of fellow agents or friends and is challenged by her attraction to a woman she suspects is involved in the case.

Adena Weber is trying to maintain her late father's law firm and legacy, part of which is the homeless resource center Colby is investigating. She's always followed the rules and adhered to her boundaries until a new homeless woman wanders into the center.

Colby and Adena choose to keep secrets that complicate their jobs and ultimately jeopardize the possibility of a life together. Only a shared passion for justice and each other keeps pulling them back together, despite the risks and the deceptions that threaten all they value.

Loved this Audible.

Any additional comments?

I loved Deception. Beautifully written. Great narration. I love Colby, Adena and SingSong. There are some very small parts that are going to make you wince. Looking at the life of a homeless person is a positive side benefit. The end is a little abrupt. But overall a great listen.

Values vs Potential Happiness.. Rough Call

Reminds me of the scruples examine in _Too Close to Touch_ by Georgia Beers. _Deception_ considers propriety, power roles, and love.

Thank goodness for that "legend"! With it and the instantly palpable HOT factor, suspension of disbelief rocks on. Melissa Sternenberg does a fantastic job of differentiating voices. The author does a phenomenal job of drawing the scene. Great book. Great narration.

Ah.... the wet blanket of reality.... The only thing that makes this dance toward and away from love is the fact that we, the readers, know what a "legend" is. As a result of responsibilities some of us have toward others, were it not for that "legend", the rules, policies, and laws would totally apply.

I think there are times our community justifies certain relationships based on the "lack of options," resulting from the "size of our population." Our population is larger than anyone has estimated. The right, ACTUALLY-available person or larger purpose is out there for each of us.
