Overview

The fabulous New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author returns with a sizzling, funny, and deeply emotional tale of passion and secrets, deception and forgiveness

A matter of secrets . . .

Undercover cop Logan "Kash" Ryan can't afford a distraction like his new neighbor Rachel Masters, even if she's the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. To catch a serial killer, he needs to stay focused, yet all he can think about is the feisty, long-legged coed whose guarded nature intrigues him.

A matter of lies . . .

Deceived and hurt before, Rachel would rather be a single, crazy cat lady than trust another guy, especially a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy with a Harley, like Kash. But when his liquid-steel eyes meet hers, it takes all of Rachel's willpower to stop herself from exploring his hot body with her own.

A matter of love . . .

As much as they try to keep it platonic, the friction between them sparks an irresistible heat that soon consumes them. Can Kash keep Rachel's heart and her life safe even as he risks his own? Will she be able to forgive his lies . . . or will she run when she discovers the dangerous truth?

    Forgiving Lies by Molly McAdams was an amazing story that captiv

    Forgiving Lies by Molly McAdams was an amazing story that captivated me from beginning to end.  I loved every single word of it and now I am left desperately wanting the next book, Deceiving Lies.

    With every new book that Ms. McAdams delivers, I fall more and more in love with her writing and exceptional ability to bring a story to life.  As a reader, I wasn’t just given a story to read, I was immersed into the world of Kash and Rachel experiencing every detail right along with them.  Ms. McAdams always does a magnificent job evoking every emotion possible from her readers, and Forgiving Lies is absolutely no exception.

    Kash and Rachel were superbly written and I connected with their characters immediately.  Their relationship was gradual and didn’t feel forced or unrealistic.  Their interactions and dialogue were witty and so much fun to read.  Kash is an extremely hot, bad*** alpha male who makes you fall in lust/love as soon as he makes his debut on the page, and Rachel has a quiet strength about her that immediately wowed me.  Their development as individual characters, and as a couple, were my two favorite parts of the book.

    The secondary characters added an extremely fun element to the story and made for a much richer read.  I loved Mason - his quick wit and banter with Kash were awesome!  I loved to hate Candice -  she has to be the absolute worst best friend ever.  However, I did think that she was an honest, refreshing addition to the book.

    Debuting as book one in this new series, Forgiving Lies deals with a darker subject matter (sexual predator and detailed rape scene) than the author’s previous books, and also contains a suspense/mystery element.  It is fast-paced and filled with angst, but was a little predictable.  The ending delivers a massive cliffhanger that will leave you screaming and cursing the fact that you have to wait until Spring of 2014 for the next one.

    Overall, Forgiving Lies was an exceptional story that captured my heart!  I consider it a must read for any fan of the Contemporary, New Adult and Romantic Suspense genres. Reading a Molly McAdams book is a phenomenal experience, especially is that book is Forgiving Lies!

    I recently read Forgiving Lies because my friend kept telling me

    I recently read Forgiving Lies because my friend kept telling me how amazing it was. I finally had the time to read it, and I have to say I wasn't impressed. The whole story is so unrealistic and all over the place. Too many things were going on at one time and it became overwhelming. It's like one crazy thing would happen and then it would automatically jump into something else and it was ridiculous. A lot of things came out of nowhere with no warning or hint and that threw me off. I don't want to ruin anything, but the first tragic thing that happens to Rachel in the book was so unexpected and out of nowhere. If McAdams would have mentioned that this character was always a bit sketchy than things would have been different, but she just kind of jumps into it out of nowhere. 

    I also wasn't a fan of how cliche Rachel and Kash's romance was. It was basically like Rachel depended on Kash for everything and didn't want to be without him. I don't like it when the girl is deemed as helpless, I like her to be strong and powerful. The whole relationship moved way too fast.

    In the long run, I wouldn't recommend this book unless you were into cliche love stories.

    ~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    When I first heard of this book, I thought the storyline sounded interesting. Then I saw the gorgeous cover (I’m a sucker for piercings) and decided to give this author a second shot. I’ve only read one book by her previously and it was one of those where I almost DNF it but I just had to know how that mess ended.

    So here I am diving in FORGIVING LIES. It starts off pretty good. Rachel is going to college in Texas with her best friend Candice. They’ve been friends since they were little. Candice and her family have helped Rachel through many tough situations, including the death of both of her parents. They took her in and have raised her since.

    On the other hand we have Kash, a cop from Tampa, and his partner Mason who are sent to Texas to find the Carnation Killer. They’ve tracked their mystery suspect in the serial killings to that town and are now undercover trying to find his identity and prevent him from killing again.

    Rachel used to have a crush on Candice’s cousin Blake when they were younger. He’s moved to Texas and is working at their college. And he’s been trying to get Rachel to go out with him for the longest time. Until, and with Candice’s help, Rachel agrees. They go on a couple of dates when his sick personality starts to show and he tries to harm her. After her best friend turns her back on her and sides with her cousin, Rachel just continues on with her life as if nothing happened. Then she meets hunky Kash and sparks quickly fly between them.

    Although this book started out interesting, the dialogue and the turns the story took quickly had me wanting to commit murder. I hate, hate, HATE being in this position! This book left so many unanswered questions and handled so many issues the wrong way. My common-sense meter was on high alert and constantly tested. Sadly, although I wanted to give up and put this aside, I continued reading. And things just got more over the top and unrealistic.

    There is a near rape scene near the beginning of the book. Instead of taking that serious event and doing something with it, it’s shoved to the side and not addressed, talked about, or the emotions afterwards felt until about 80 pages later. How can someone go through something so traumatic and then continue on as if nothing happened, joking around and going out with friends. Even sort of dating a complete stranger!

    This wasn’t the only issue I had with the story, but I don’t want to get into every detail. I felt as if the author was trying to put in “angst” and events from a mental checklist instead of making those flow with the story. Rape, check. Gun shot, check. Kidnapping, check.

    The characters throughout the story came off as immature. There were things I enjoyed but I don’t think those are enough to make me continue reading this series, even after the cliffhanger ending.

    The author gave clues and allowed the reader to make inferences

    The author gave clues and allowed the reader to make inferences rather than just flat out telling us everything.
    Loved seeing things from both Kashmir and Rachel's Point of view. It flowed very easily and was clear who was speaking because they had distinct personalities that came out in When first introduced to each of the main characters, it wasn't obvious in what way they were flawed, yet that came through clearly while reading. There were multiple peaks throughout the story that pulled me in over and over, rather than just rising action - climax - resolution.


    The love scenes were just that - love scenes that were sweet and passionate. Nothing over the top or raunchy. They got your heartbeat going a bit but you wouldn't be embarrassed to recommend this to your mom without blushing. Characters were very likable - I loved that Rachel was such a strong independent female lead. I found myself really caring them. Leaves you wanting to read the next book in the series.




    What I disliked about the book.




    I did not like the cliffhanger that the readers are left with at the end of the book, especially since the next book does not come out until next year. I think that is a long time to keep a reader hanging.




    I enjoy reading Molly McAdams books and Forgiving Lies has the promise of being a great series and I am looking forward to book #2. So be prepared to be drawn into the lives of Kash and Rachel and enjoy the ride.

    Told through both Rachel and Kash's points of view, this book moved perfectly back and forth building the relationship with both telling their side of the story.  I could tell from the beginning, this book was going to be different and I couldn't wait to keep reading.  

    Rachel had quite a lot happen to her in this book and although I am not sure I agreed completely with the reactions that happened, I could enjoy them in the fiction setting of the book.  On the other hand, I felt like Kash was a little more real and I waited for the times where he was narrating the story.

    I'm a fan of Molly McAdams but her female character's lack so much common sense. In Forgiving Lies Rachel's actions are so stupid. What woman in her right mind would still hang around the person who raped her. When she tells her friend who really attacked her, the friend doesn't believe her. Time for a new friend. I' m disappointed that Rachel's actions just make her such a flawed character. Better character development would have made this a better read.
