I knew, as soon as this first book in the White Lies Duet was released, that I just couldn’t listen to it.. well not then anyway and not until the second book became available. And it’s not because it isn’t tempting - because it is.. and it’s not because the author is an unknown - because she IS well-known, well respected and she’s very talented. No, it’s because I had been a willing participant stuck in one of this author’s sticky webs before with no desire to be freed until the final words had been spoken. So I patiently waited.. and was rewarded with a listen that completely consumed me, entertained and enthralled me.. and left me glad that I’d got book two waiting in the wings to give me ALL the answers, the character growth and the HEA ending I desperately need.
Wealthy Attorney Nick Rogers went to Reid Winter Winery in search of clues that’d expose a cold blooded killer who’d orchestrated the deaths of his Father and the killer’s very own Mother - but, from the moment Nick laid his eyes on Faith, he knew he was in big trouble.. and the beautiful feisty clever woman challenged him all the way. And, the further along he got in their supposed ‘one night’ relationship, the harder it became for Nick because, rather than a cold blooded money hungry killer, all Nick could see was the selfless Artist who’d been trapped living a life she didn’t choose. In Nick’s eyes that didn’t make Faith guilty.. it made her self-sacrificing, innocent and vulnerable.. but Nick had so many secrets, told so many lies and kept his true purpose for seeking her out away from Faith. What was he going to do when she found out his truths? This woman had completely stolen his heart.. he was the courtroom Tiger who ripped the throat out of his opponents.. who was always dominant.. the cold blooded powerful ruthless Lawyer.. the man who didn’t believe in love or HEA’s. He now believed in one.. but would he ever get the second because guilty or not Faith is his.. he’ll stand by her.. protect her.. cover for her.. have faith in her.. and pray she’ll forgive him.
Faith had come to her late Father’s Winery after he’d died to help her Mother cope.. but she’d been impossibly stuck there for two long years - and now her Mother is dead which has left Faith drowning in red tape, Bank accounts locked and the wolves are at the door desperate to shut her down. Then she saw an opportunity to forget her troubles for just one night with an arrogant handsome bastard whose eyes, mouth, body, cocky confident sex appeal and alpha personality tempted her for the first time in two years. And, through the haze of lust, the pull of chemistry and the power of their passion - one night led so so much more.. because Faith slowly awakened, opened up, trusted and let Nick into her troubled world.. but how badly is she going to regret it?
This really is a clever and addictive dual POV story that slowly opens up to reveal and conceal truths, doubts, personalities, secrets and suspicions as the plot progresses through clever banter, hot days and nights of sex and sin while you’re drip-fed character and clues. There’s a growing closeness between Faith and Nick that’s been built entirely on Nick’s lies and suspicions.. and you know the truth will explode and rock their relationship when it’s finally revealed. So, I’m off to listen to the next book in this Duet to see how this alpha badboy is going to talk his way out of trouble and win back Faith’s.. err faith, see if Faith finally becomes a successful Artist, find out who the real murderer is and why he/she wants the Winery.
Worth a credit? Murder led to silent accusations, suspicion, secrets, sex and mystery. It was instant attraction, instant chemistry and instant lust between two well-matched damaged people. Two kindred spirits whose intense relationship urges them to reassess their thoughts on love.. they certainly found obsession. It’s well narrated too.. and YES this first book is definitely creditworthy.

A struggle to finish. The whole first half was corny and predictable. Fifty shades shadowing.
