Overview

A little lying and misdirection in the name of love is never wrong. Right?

Hauberk Protection, Book 3

Chad Miller once had the perfect life—a beautiful baby daughter, a loving wife, a promising career with the FBI. Within a year, he’d lost everything. Making Hauberk Protection a success salvaged his career, but he’s never managed to get over the one fateful decision that spelled the end of his marriage. And the death of his child.

For eight years, grief and guilt have haunted Lauren Miller’s climb up the ranks of the Light Brigade, a secret international hostage rescue team. Now she’s the target of a vengeful ex-Brigade operative who’ll stop at nothing to take her down. Even if it means taking out everyone she cares about. Including Chad. Getting him to accept her as his bodyguard? It’ll take some fast talking—and faster hands.

Trapped in a remote safe house with Lauren is the last place Chad ever wanted to be. He may finally have the chance to get some answers about why she ran, but with his hard-won defenses crumbling, he’s having trouble remembering the questions. In the heat of their rekindled passion, Lauren struggles to keep her professional focus…and keep the secrets that could break his heart all over again.

Warning: Angst dead-ahead! Lost love. Angst. Reunited lovers. Angst. Sex. More angst. And did I mention the angst? A box of tissues is definitely needed. But don’t worry, there’s still a Happy-Ever-After.

I cried, laughed and even felt the heat between the two.

Amid the secrets of black ops and high security protection organization, Lauren and Chad are thrown together after eight years of being apart. Less than open, honest dealings, even though meant to be in the best interest of both Lauren and Chad, lead to tense and dangerous moments. Misinformation and guilt have made them both miserable for all these eight years while each grieved alone for their darling baby that died. The emotional stress and "what-ifs" have taken their toll on Lauren as she works in clandestine missions. Both Lauren and Chad have been deliberately deceived by people who claim to care about them. Bit by piece the plot unfolds as Lauren and Chad slip back into the sexual activities they enjoyed back when they were married. These scenes are rather explicit, with bondage and sex toys, and not always "the usual". This short novel is the third book of a series. The reader will probably be more invested in the characters and empathize with them more if he or she has read the previous books so that the characters will be better known and seem more developed. One gets the feeling of having come in "after the movies has started" at times. Deliberate Deceptions is a sure way to escape from the mundane for a while with its love scenes that make one wonder - REALLY? It gives the reader a satisfying happy-ever-after that Lauren and Chad so deserve after all the grief and manipulations they have endured. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews

One quick decision, a family tragedy, a nosy sister, and a twist (can't tell you) makes Deliberate Deceptions an amazing addition to the Hauberk Protection series! Thank you for giving Chad and Lauren another chance. This story is so full of angst my heart was hurting for them both. Chad has been assigned to guard his ex-wife Lauren and she is keeping secrets. He's not sure he can do this there is too much of a past between them and it still hurts to see her. He quickly realizes he still has feelings but something is off. What is it? Lauren still loves Chad as well but there are secrets she can't tell him. Can this still work? Secrets get revealed, truths come out, and healing can begin. GREAT LOVE STORY - I cried. great sex and lots of emotion.

Yet another great book from Leah Braemel! I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and I loved how I was able to connect with these characters. I felt so sorry for all the pain and loss they both endured. The book definitely gave me the happy ending for Lauren & Chad I felt they were owed as a result of all their suffering. Looking forward to the next in this series!

Although this felt a little rushed at times (within the first 24 hours back together the couple is physically involved again), I enjoyed the emotional struggles they went through. The classic theme of mis/no communication leading to relationship problems was developed into an entertaining read. Some more development of the outside threat would have added more texture to this book.
