Lies is the first book in this series. As a fan of C.A. Harms other work, I couldn't wait to read this one. The story revolves around Josh and Gabby. A chance encounter brings the two of them together. Unfortunately for Josh, meeting Gabby was at the wrong time. He is fixing to go undercover and a relationship will complicate things. He can't stop his attraction and decides to take the leap. The relationship builds between them but happiness doesn't last. When Josh's undercover job takes a turn, decisions have to be made. They are decisions that leave you wanting to curse and beg the author for the next book.
Josh is a great character. You can tell that he is torn when it comes to job and love. He doesn't want to give Gabby up but he also doesn't want to screw up the job. You can tell that he truly loves her and he even makes a very hard decision to protect her.
Gabby is a great female character. All of the female characters that Harms creates are pretty awesome. You feel for Gabby because she is having to deal with so much just to be in a relationship with Josh. I love her relationship with Josh and I just can't wait to see more of them.
Harms is one of my go to authors. I know that when I read her books I am guaranteed to have a great romance. This book did not let me down. It was a fantastic read that just leaves wanting more. It is a little different than her other stories. The romance was there but there was also some suspense. The book builds and builds. By the end you are completely engrossed and hoping it never ends.
5 out of 5 Stars!!
