    “Deadly Charade is definitely a great addition to Ms. DePaul’s work.” ~Under the Covers Book Blog

    Jaded to his lies and past drug use, Linda Delaney had finally ended her relationship with Tony. Trust was always her issue, and it’s just not something she gave easily. Years later, she had built a career that may lead to a position as a judge. Of course, Tony shows up in the courtroom charged with murder and her quiet, safe life is shaken out of order. Being on this case will threaten her reputation as a district attorney, so she gives the case to her colleague. Whether her reasons are due to conflict-of-interest or a way to avoid him completely, it doesn’t matter. The bottom line is their paths had crossed, and there is no turning back. The question is…is she prepared to know what he’s been doing all these years?

    Tony was crushed when Linda left him, but he couldn’t really blame her. Due to his connection with drugs and many other circumstances, he had to let her go. Even after all this time, his feelings have not changed but pursuing Linda is not in his plans. He’s gone too deep into his work, and his goal for revenge and protection is a top priority.

    I had mixed feelings about Linda. She annoyed me when she doubted Tony especially when he needed her most. I feel like she kept expecting the worst from him and I hated that. I can’t say I blame her though; someone you love using drugs is a hard situation to deal with. It didn’t take long for Linda to warm up to me though, and in the end, she proved herself worthy for our hero. After all, Tony truly deserves someone who will support him despite his past. I just love heroes with a dark side, and Tony indeed falls in that category. His dark side comes in a form of past drug addiction and a secret life. I love that he had a weakness, and his love for Linda was his driving force to overcome it. He’s really given up a lot for Linda. There’s nothing like a dose of sacrifice to prove your love, right?

    Overall, I enjoyed Tony and Linda’s story. Deadly Charade is definitely a great addition to Ms. DePaul’s work.
