Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies by Cynthia Cooke

Deception is the name of the game…

Genie Marsters is in trouble. Big trouble. As a former counter-terrorism agent – and with the guns to prove it – she knows how to take care of herself. But when masked men invade her desert hideaway, Genie knows she’s outnumbered. The last thing she expects is a rescue… especially from Kyle Montgomery. Her ex-partner. Her ex-lover. Her betrayer.

Kyle hasn’t seen Genie for eight months. Not since the explosion that killed her sister and left him in the hospital. Not since she betrayed him and their unit. And she still makes his blood burn in all the right ways. But a calculating terrorist has targeted Genie and her family, and the only way anyone is getting to Genie is over Kyle’s dead body…

But the game of lies and deception is just beginning. Genie is still hiding the biggest secret yet… and this secret could be the most deadly weapon of all!

    Review: "Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies" by Cynthia


    "Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies" by Cynthia Cooke was a very good romantic suspense read that I thoroughly enjoyed so much that I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. You will find yourself guessing until the very end which you will be left with a cliffhanger. Be ready for non stop action read! This author was able to keep me on the edge of my seat all the way through this well written novel.

    This author's heroine.... Genie's(formerly CTA) past has finally caught up with her and the lies surround her as she attempts to get the truth of really what happened in the death of her dear mother. Genie is very tough and has two sister...all three are triplets...(that has been hidden ) sister(Becca)could be dead or a traitor to the country and the other sister (Cat)is in hiding with family that knows nothing of her history. Genie is now being sought by someone who is out to get her and her sisters. Now, their Dad(who was the ex-directory of the most secretive agency in the U.S.Government) now missing. Will the CTA come to their rescue? Who will Genie put her trust in? What a mess!

    The hero was Kyle who was a ex boyfriend of Genie's...who worked for the CTA and now enters... in his chopper with Johnny. What a team that swoops down and brings Genie in for questioning and what a rescue from this 'goon squad' from Genie's 'secret' residence.

    All of the characters from Genie, Kyle, Johnny, Cat, Becca, Emerich, Marsters,Amelia, Garrison, to Cameron and I am sure I have left someone out but this group really all a very interesting making this an emotional, passionate, heart stopping good read.

    This novel will be full of plots that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I do not want to tell you too much more because I want you to pick up "Deadly Secrets,Loving Lies" to find out just what this secret that the triplets had, why their father keep them separated and even more will come out of this excellent read.

    Be ready for a read where there will be love, betrayal, guns, explosions, secret powers, black SUV's lust, boat blowing up, death, vendettas, grief, revenge, finger pointing and some moments that will leave you saying WOW!... I didn't see that coming!

    "Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies" will only leave you wanting more in this action paced novel and I would recommend this novel as a excellent read if you are in for suspenseful and romantic read.

    Really fabulous book!

    My Review:

    As the premier release for the Dead Sexy line for Entangled, this book lives up to the hype. I loved this book. There is tons of action, intrigue, and one seriously hot and sexy couple in Genie and Kyle.
    Genie and Kyle were everything to each other, partners and lovers with a Happily Ever After in their future, until 8 months ago when her family lies caught up to them and Kyle almost died. Genie left him without a backward glance for his own protection. The love between this two is undeniable, but while Genie has accepted they have no future, Kyle hasn’t. He knows she’s keeping secrets, but believes they can work past them if he can just get her to trust him. But for Genie, it’s hard to abandon a lifetime of programming and mistrust.

    For me, the thing that absolutely made this book were the very real and gut-wrenching feelings between these two. Their passion and heat is incredible even when neither one of them will trust the other. They can’t help the level and depth of their feelings even when both of them know it will just mean more devastation later.

    There’s a lot going on in this book and I never did figure out exactly what the true version of the story was until it was revealed. I kept guessing and second-guessing the bad guys all the way through. I love stories like that.

    Overall this was a fabulous read…tons of emotion, passion, and heart-stopping adventure. Genie is a tough, hard-as-nails heroine who can hold her own in just about any circumstance, but her vulnerability is Kyle because she loves him so much. There is never any doubt about that and that made her such a fabulous character to love. The same can be said for Kyle. Together they make an incredible team and it makes for a great romantic suspense story. I really loved it!

    Wonderfully written story that balances romance and suspense ver

    Wonderfully written story that balances romance and suspense very well. The plot was far more intricate than I expected, and had me guessing until the end. Highly recommended!

    Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies delivers a thrill ride of action-pac

    Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies delivers a thrill ride of action-paced suspense. Genie, an ex-government agent, just wanted to be left alone. But when guns are blazing at her private retreat, she can't ignore her family or her life any longer. The hardest part of her returning is that she has to face her hunky ex, who she left without a good explanation. I loved the emotions and the crazy adventures these two have--Will they get together? Should they get together?--as they are forced to work together to try and figure out who has betrayed them--her family? the government? or a villain from her past? I look forward to reading more romantic adventures from Cynthia Cooke.
