🔥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 GOOD!

Excellent narration and story! This is part two of three, and while it didn’t pick up where part one ended, it provided Lia and Adrian’s history...and when a history! I loved this book, dark and steamy with an edge of your seat cliffhanger! Can not wait for the final installment!

Oh Adrain, be still my heart!

I will try hard not to give to many spoilers but I may slip up, so be warned. At the end of book one, you have the Winter/Leah bomb dropped, leaving you going what just happened. With this book, you get the background on Adrian and Leah. Where is all began. Why she felt like she did when we first met her in Ry's book. I hate to say this, but she is my LEAST favorite female leads in Rinas books. She is selfish and no matter how hard Adrian tried to show how he felt, she shunned him. I know he "forced" their relationship, but she was very in to him. So why after 5 years she is still fighting it really baffles me. She is the one who keeps damaging them and their progress and she wonders why Adrian is distant?! Seriously?! I just can't. I wanted to claw her eyes out. Even with all her antics, I still loved the book. Adrian is fierce and protective. He wants it to work. But now his life is in even more danger, because of her! UGH. By then end of book two it comes full circle back to the beginning of book one, but there are only more questions. I am now more confused on what to think. Going to book 3 right now, I HAVE TO KNOW! I listened to the audio and it was perfection!

Intense and Steamy!!

Wow... and the plot thickens. Tempted by Deception is book 2 in the Deception trilogy and picks up right where book 1 ended. There are a lot of questions about Adrian and Lia's past and the history of their relationship that are answered in this book. Once again Rina Kent does a fabulous job weaving the intricate details of this intense mystery together which sets the reader up perfectly for the third book in the trilogy.

Jason Clarke and Desiree Ketchum narrate Adrian and Lia's story, and are once again absolute perfection. I was completely consumed in their performances within this audiobook. Both do a great job with Russian accents, and make you feel every bit a part of Adrian and Lia's twisted world.

Perfection

I don’t know who to brag on first. Rina’s writing or Jason and Desiree’s narration. I don’t think this book could be any more perfect. Rina was so brilliant in taking this series and starting in the middle of the story in the first book, then switching to the beginning of the story in the second book. I was so confused at first and then it all made total sense. I was completely blown away! Her mind and the places she takes us to and the people she allows us to meet is so thrilling that I wish the series would not stop at three books. In fact, I want to story of the other characters. I like how she inter-weaves people from other books, but they’re not the main part of the story.

Jason and Desiree were perfection. They both did the Russian accent so well, but not only that, they could actually do the voice of the opposite sex without sounding silly. Desiree perfected Adrian‘s voice and Jason perfected Lila’s. They made a perfect story so entertaining that I had a hard time stopping it to do other work.

I don’t think I could praise this audiobook enough. I don’t think there is one book that I have read or listen to of Rina’s and not liked it. She knows how to choose Narrators that will make her characters come to life. So many times I have a listen to audiobooks by excellent writers, and then the Narrators destroy the story because of a bad performance. This has never been the case with Rina’s books.

Listen to this audiobook, but only if you’re over 18. 😊
