I am a sucker for library book sales. Not only can I buy books within my monthly budget, but the money from those sales goes back into activities for children at my local library. Plus, it feeds my book addiction and fills my shelves with something I absolutely love, mismatched collections of books.
A couple of months ago, I hit up their biggest sale, twice. I spent $15 combined both visits, and came out with books for my whole family.
Deceptive Innocence was one of the books I picked up. Hello, look at that beautiful simple cover, plus the title left me wanting to know more.
Only 100 pages in and I love it. The beginning of the story kind of reminded me of The Bourbon Thief by Tiffany Reisz. Albeit a little different, I am enjoying this blind purchase.
About the book:
Kyra Davis, the New York Times bestselling author of Just One Night, returns with book one in the thrillingly erotic Pure Sin series featuring a beautiful young woman out for revenge—until she falls in love with the one man whose secrets are as dangerous as her own. (Note: this volume collects Parts 1 – 3 of the previously serialized Deceptive Innocence ebook series.)
Ever since Bell’s mother died while serving time for a murder she didn’t commit, Bell’s been focused on one thing: revenge. She knows her mother was set up by Jonathon Gable, the head of both the powerful Gable family and an international banking corporation. Now she’s determined to take him down—from the inside.
Bell needs access to the Gable home and offices, so she poses as a bartender to seduce her way into the bed—and life—of Jonathon’s rebellious youngest son, Lander. He’s not a typical Gable, spending more time in the dive bars of Harlem than the posh cocktail lounges of the Upper East Side. He has an attraction to danger, a vulnerability Bell isn’t shy about exploiting. It should be easy to uncover the secrets she needs to destroy his family and clear her mother’s name.
But it turns out Lander is much more complicated than she ever imagined. He’s enticing, intelligent, mysterious—plus their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Even though Bell knows he’s the enemy, she can’t help but be moved, both physically and emotionally, by the man she swore was just a target. When he finds out the truth she’s sure both their hearts and her plan will be crushed…until she begins to realize that Lander might be hiding his own secrets, darker than she ever imagined.
