Good people sometimes do bad things
Marianne needs to find who's leaking secrets from her company, before they lose another major contract. What she doesn't need is an affair with her married boss. Even worse, to fall in love with him.
She discovers the security leak is more than a case of commercial espionage: someone is lying in the shadows, playing games with them. Now more than her heart and career are at stake--her life is on the line.

I just don't know about this story. I wanted to really love it and I don't know if my head got in the way or what but it just didn't do it for me. There are too many things about the characters and decisions that were made that I just can't get past. These are supposed to be smart and reasonable people but they do some of the dumbest stuff. Something would happen and you get caught up in it and then . . . yeah I know I am in the minority and since I love this author's work I am gonna say it's a one up. I am going to read more because I like her work and I am hoping the next one will make up for this one. Like I said there are good parts about the book and that's why I could give it this rating for me the characters (not all of them but enough of them) just didn't work for me. It's a good story with plenty of action and chaos. Yes there is cheating. Yes there is tragedy.
Lying in Shadows is an engrossing story of corporate espionage and revenge. The characters are well written and powerfully portrayed. I was pulled into their drama and quickly cared what happened to them even though they had their flaws. I was disturbed that Marcus had an affair with Marianne, his employee, even though he was married. Cheating is not an admirable trait. On the other end of the scale, I admired Rico Sanchez for his intelligence and his street smarts. He was able to see the big picture and wouldn't be stopped by violence or threats. AJ, a world famous musician, gave the story a different perspective. Sofia Grey did a wonderful job. She was able to bring these characters together in a dangerous adventure and to combine it with a passionate romance. London and the English countryside are the perfect setting for this suspenseful story. The ending had me on the edge of seat. I was floored by what happened. I never saw it coming. I can't wait to see what happens next since this is the first book in the Event Horizon series. I received a copy of this book. I voluntarily reviewed this story. My comments are my honest opinion.
