I lie to survive.
Have since I was sixteen and my world fell into chaos. But I found a way to endure, or rather it found me. Now I’m a prisoner of my own doing, hiding behind a false mask so no one sees the truth. Not even the man I want but can’t have—Deck. But I messed up and the lies are spilling over, out of control.
Deck is unrelenting and will settle for nothing less than the truth. He demands everything from me—EVERYTHING—even if it rips me apart.
I kill for a living.
Unyielding—It’s how I survive in my line of work. I bend people to my will…except Georgie.
But that ends now.
I've played her game for far too long. Now I think it's time we play mine.
Review: Ok, so part of me wants to give this three stars and part of me wants to give this four stars. Since this author typically really draws me into her books, and this book was no different, I am going with four. However, there were some aspects of this book that seem a little...out there, so this is a very hesitant four.
Basically, I've been waiting for Deck's story for a while now. The strong, silent, get things done type always draws me in, but Georgie has always been one that seemed a little out there. I am still not sure I love Georgie, but I also think that Deck needs someone like her to balance him out - and also to get his lifestyle.
Deck has been watching out for Georgie for years - since her older brother was killed in action while they were both serving in the military. The thing is, though, he actually hasn't been watching out for her as well as he thought. Georgie has some strange things going on in her life, and she has some darkness in her past. Her story is tied to a much larger story, and this is where I was so tempted to go with a three rating because it just seemed somewhat over the top - what Georgie was involved in, that is. That's kind of the point, however, with many of this author's stories - you get that thing or that event that would never happen to most people, and it is usually terrifying and/or heartbreaking - and that is what happens to these characters.
There is also something that happens at the end that really draws me in, as usual, so I know that I will be picking up the next book in this series. I want to know what happens.
