Publisher's Summary

My husband. My villain. 

We started with death and blood. 

We started with games and carnal pleasure. 

Adrian and I shouldn’t have been together. 

He’s wrong. 

I’m wrong. 

What we have is the epitome of disaster. 

Yet, it’s impossible to stop.

My husband will either destroy me or I’ll destroy him.

This book is part of a trilogy and is not standalone.

🔥OMFG this was S T E L L A R!! 🔥

Holy shizz balls and cheese on a cracker!! Rina Kent is going to getting forwarded some hefty cardiologist and neurologist bills on my behalf because she’s just dishing out heart palpitation after heart attack after stroke with each book! Tempted by Deception was AH-MAY-ZIIIINNNG!! We got more backstory and if I loved Daddy Adrian before I’m hopeless devoted for now and forever! Rina Kent masterfully peels back layer after layer from the story and characters and answers questions we’ve been begging to be answered only to leave us with more questions going into the third and final book. I cannot wait for that freaking ride! LOVED!!

I read this, but on AUDIO! Holy smokes!! Jason Clarke and Desiree Ketchum are magnificent. I cannot with their performances. They bring this story to life so perfectly. Jason will forever be my Adrian and the emotion that Desiree endures into Lia is just...WOW. I’m dying and dreading the last book on audio because I know it’s going to be one HELL of a BOOK HANGOVER!! Highly Recommend! MUST LISTEN!! 5 stars and then some.

Brilliant writing!!!😁

This series is turning out to be INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!! I can’t
Wait til May 6, 2021, when audible is scheduled to put the final audiobook in the catalog, but for those who can’t wait you can certainly download to your Kindle or just order the paper version now!!! I love having the narrators bring the book to life, plus it’s easier for me while I’m cooking, cleaning, etc. around the house....

So in the meantime without spoiling any of the storylines, let me just say this second book by the end manage to catch us up to where the first book started out! Which may sound weird or backwards but if you read the first it actually makes sense.......And trust me, you will still be eager for the third and final book! 😀 The sexy and hot love scenes continue. 😘😜 Plus the plot twists and characters do not disappoint. 👍🏽 Just when I thought I was confused, everything fell into place.....

I have the same feelings as I did for the characters as I did in the first book, Lia is a broken but still fighting heroine and Adrian is a demanding but hot anti-hero. I can’t wait to finish the series....💕💕😍

Obsessed with Ms Kent’s books!

Love all of Rina Kent’s books.
They are an auto download for me.
Well written and steamy. Full of twists and turns always keeping you on the edge of your seat. Once you start listening it’s impossible to stop. Also adore the narrators who capture the characters and their emotions so perfectly.
Can’t wait for book 3.

Wow. Wow wow wow!!!

Yep. That’s all I could say as soon as this book ended...WOW!! Love to hate Adrian. Hate to love him, too! ..but knowing the backstory from the 1st book, leaves me with the hate/love for the guy! And the twist plot of Lea vs. Winter! Yep: WOW!! While I’m waiting for the 3rd book, Imm just gonna hav ta re-read the 1st. And then this 2nd one. Fantastic job to Clarke & Ketchum. They are perfect narrators for this series. Ms. Kent rocks out another rollercoaster ride once again. I think this one is my favourite of al her duets!

So Dark

Second book is beginning to bring clarity to unanswered questions from first book. The depth of emotions elicited by Adrian and Lea is palpable. Both narrators did a wonderful job with characters. On to book 3!

Yes. Worth the credit.

This book is a ride I was not expecting after the first book. I was satisfied with first, but not blown away. Interested enough to move to part two. This is exactly what you are expecting from a dark mafia romance with an S&M undertone. The characters have depth with mental illness(es) - some verbalized and others are obvious from the behaviors. They are both morally gray (closer to black) with different responses to that reality. I spent the entirety of this book frustrated with the decisions of these characters, hoping they would separate and rooting for them to succeed, often simultaneously.

The actual mystery of a plot is good. I was not expecting all of the excitement out of this series. It’s a dark mafia romantic thriller.

Please consider checking trigger warnings not optional. I will list them at the end. Spicy level - 3 of 5. There are, um, interesting kinky scenes.

Tempted by Deception

This series is so good that I have a book hangover. I was up listening until 4:00am and I had to go to work. More of the mystery is starting to unfold. My heart hurt for Lia when she went over to Adrian as he is speaking with a beautiful woman. Clearly it was not just an innocent conversation. The bodyguard was unable to stop her. Adrian acted like he did not know her even when his future father-in-law questioned him. At that moment, I would have loved to hurt Adrian. He is slowly breaking her. We also find out more about Winter. This mafia book has so many twists and turns that you don't know what will happen next. I am looking forward to book 3 to see how everything ends. Jason Clarke and Desireé Ketchum did a great job with the narration.

🌻What a let down😢🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

I was so pumped, at the end of book 1, to start book 2. The way book one finished, I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. However, book
2 starts as a flashback, from Five years before. It’s not a brief FB, either. The entire book 2 IS THE FLASHBACK. It ends where book one also ends( pretty close, anyway). I found myself getting very impatient and I struggled to get through book two. I even stopped listening and listened to two new releases before returning to it. Maybe it’s just me but the way the author handled book two, totally bummed me out.

I’m ready for book three and am hoping that the last book is more in line with book 1. Here’s hoping 🤞🤞🤞
