Overview

Deliberate Deceptions by Leah Braemel

She's guarding his body. He's guarding his heart.

Hostage negotiator Lauren Miller is used to staring danger in the face. Now a vengeful former team member is targeting her and anyone she cares about, including her ex-husband. Although hiding them both in the same remote safehouse is risky, the plan could provide her with the perfect opportunity to make amends with the one man who has her heart.

Building Hauberk Protection into a success is the only thing that's kept Chad sane since his marriage ended. He loved Lauren more than life itself and losing her left a hole that haunts him still. When he unexpectedly finds himself trapped with her, Chad can think of only one up-side-he can finally learn why she walked away without an explanation.

Except the heat that burns between them is turning their defenses to ash. As their passion rekindles, Lauren struggles to keep her focus. Especially when she learns that Chad wasn't the only one being deceived. And those deliberate deceptions put both their lives in jeopardy.

Warning: Tie-me-up, hold-you-down, no-frontiers-unexplored action could raise internal temperature. Please keep flammable materials at a safe distance while reading. Virtual cases of tissues included, and HEA guaranteed.

Also contains PERFECT PROPOSAL, a Hauberk Protection short story, for the first time ever in print.

Books 3 and 3.5 of the Hauberk Protection series

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.
