Readers are led to believe but I need to learn the truth now And I need to learn how Vaughn is going to escape unscathed Man I felt like Vaughn was walking on the very edge of a cliff the whole time All it would take was for someone to learn her secrets and just tap her right off the cliff She has so much riding on her secret life that it makes ou wonder if it was worth it I kept waiting for the bomb to dropRyker is tough He s kind of a jerk but Five fags a day you can see beyond that to what he and Vaughn can be if he doesn t ruin everything I m the sucker over here wanting these two tough as nails characters to soften each other up and live happily ever after but I know they are going to take a beating first Frankly I m loving every bit of it I can t wait to read the second installment A Twisted Tale of Sex Lies and SecretsI liked the varying storylines within the book The characters were well developed and believable The story opens with Vaughn Sanders who goes by Vee in her business as a Madam She runs an escort service in order to pay off medical bills she ran up while trying to save her drug addicted sister who eventually committed suicide She wants to get custody of her niece with Downs Syndrome but needs financial stability before the Government will consider itVee threatens a Senator with blackmail photos after he roughs up one of her escorts and then ends up having to take her place the following night with a new client named Ryker Ryker is a powerful divorce attorney who only represents rich men He doesn t believe in love or marriage and only wants a smart and beautiful woman for business dinners and sex Ryker pretty uickly figures out that Vaughn is hiding things and leading a double life but us intrigued by her and wants to know her so he wants to keep seeing her Vaughn doesn t want anyone knowing her personal life and she is also remembering things from her past There are also some side storylines about Rykers previous relationship one about the father of Vaughn s niece and some other characters pop up that seem integral to the story Overall it is a good book and I am excited to see how much of it is brought forward into the next one This is book one so there is a cliffhanger at the end and multiple uestions left standing so I would like to read the next book to see what happensI voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my ownBlog Goodreads Facebook Instagram Twitter BookBub I hate fing cliffhangers I love when an author brings power into the story Power is a delicate balance between people Some think they have it and want to force it onou Some people really do have it and know how to use itI kind of have mixed feelings about this book On one hand I loved the amazing craftsmanship the author developed putting the story together On the other hand the title kept popping back into my head over and over as she kept fighting him and resisting the fact they actually had something positive going It became frustrating in certain pointsThe story is uniue and I really appreciate when a female lead is strong and resourceful He could be a jerk but on the other hand found something intriguing and very sexy in her Together ou know they could do wonderful thingsBut again the title pops into my head Resist is her mantra and we spend most of the book resisting his advances And maybe that s a good thing even though it s frustrating Because the ultimate low blow is the freaking cliffhangerIt s disturbing It s frustrating It s exhausting It s emotionalLike I said I have a love hate relationship with this book Definite mixed feelings as to whether I can manage to hang on for the next edition I hate cliffhangers copy received for review consideration.
