Perfect for fans of Abbi Glines and Monica Murphy, Violetta Rand’s explosive new Lies & Leather series kicks off with a red-hot motorcycle racer who rides hard and plays for keeps.
Twenty-one-year-old Karlie Augustine is a survivor. She’s smart and tough, but she’s in too deep with a bad boyfriend who isn’t above breaking her spirit—or her body. Luckily, help arrives in the form of a leather-clad, motorcycle-riding hunk on the right side of the law. Lucas Lafontaine is pure muscle, a Corpus Christi cop who ignites something primal deep within Karlie. And when he offers her room and board in exchange for housekeeping, she finally starts to feel safe again.
As their arrangement turns deliciously decadent, Lucas gets hooked on Karlie’s killer body and fighting spirit. He wants to heal the pain he sees behind her eyes, but to protect her he needs to keep her close, especially now that her psycho ex won’t take a hint. Even as Lucas fights his own battle for custody of his young son, he knows that what he’s found with Karlie is real—and that he’d do anything to protect the woman he wants to take to the finish line.
As always I want to first thank Random House Loveswept and Netgalley for providing me with a copy f this book so that we could bring you this review.
Now we all know I fell in love with Violetta Rand her Devil’s Den series so when I saw she had a new series coming out I had to jump on it as quickly as I could. And let me just say now way am I disappointed. I loved the fact that we did get to see a bit of Asswhole Craig and a little of Marisela in this one so that was really nice. I would like to say that I would love to know what Marie and Brandon’s background is, but Im sure that I will find it somewhere eventually.
Karlie is a great strong character, she has lifted herself up from all that adversity and negativity that she has had to face in the past. She shows that she can take anything that happens to her in stride. Though like all people who grew up the way she did she does have her moments of weakness, but that is to be expected no one can be strong all of the time.
Lucas is HOT, sexy and so damn loving. I can see how it was so easy for Karlie to fall in love with him. He doesn’t hide the fact that he falls for her either. He shows that he could be the stable loving person that she needs in her life. He works hard to protect her not only from physical harm but emotional harm as well.
I truly enjoyed this book and have to say that I got quite upset that I had a real job that got in the way from me being able to read, but it was totally sleep depriving and worth it. I look forward to any other books coming from this series as well.
I give this book 5 enthusiastic kisses…
Happy reading… Adri
