My Review:

I highly recommend reading Deadly Fear before reading Deadly Lies because so you find out what happens to Samantha prior to this book.

In this series Cynthia doesn't shy away from the deeper and darker aspects and twisted views of her villians.  Also the crimes are nicely detailed to the crime crime scene to the victims bodies.

In Deadly Fear Samantha was caught by the killer who kills them by their deepest and darkest fears.  Sam is an FBI agent who is more comfortable tracking down killers at her desk then out in the field.  When Sam meets Max her plan was to have casual sex to feel like a more confident women. 

Max wants more than a one night stand with Sam and they are forced to work together when his step-brother is kidnapped by the killer for ransom.

Wow I really liked it that you never knew who the real killer was because there were so many lies from Samantha, Max had his own agenda and his step-brother. 

Woah the love scenes were very hot and steamy and there were quite a few!  I had to wash my face with cold water after reading this book!  I loved the way how Cynthia incorporated the love story with the killer story.

Glad to see Monica, Luke, Kenton and Ramirez again!


Thanks Anna from Hachette Book Group for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
