Forgiving Lies by Molly McAdams

Author: Molly McAdams
Publisher: William Morrow
Date of publication: October 2013

A matter of secrets...
Undercover cop Logan "Kash" Ryan can't afford a distraction like his new neighbor Rachel Masters, even if she's the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. To catch a serial killer, he needs to stay focused, yet all he can think about is the feisty, long-legged coed whose guarded nature intrigues him

A matter of lies...
Deceived and hurt before, Rachel would rather be a single, crazy cat lady than trust another guy, especially a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy with a Harley, like Kash. But when his liquid-steel eyes meet hers, it takes all of Rachel's will-power to stop herself from exploring his hot body with her own.

Given that I really disliked Taking Chances, I was a little wary going into this book.  I am always willing to give an author another try.  Hey, we can't love them all, right?  I am glad I gave this one a chance.  I did enjoy Forgiving Lies. I thought the characters, for the most part, were great and the story was attention grabbing.

The thing that I liked the most about this story of Rachel and Kash was that they became friends before they gave into their attraction.  Despite the "big lie" that Kash is keeping from Rachel, they really got to know each other ahead of time.  That really made me buy into their love story.  

One thing I have to say about this author is that she really knows how to write extremely dislikable characters.  I couldn't stand Candice.  If your BFF tells you that your cousin tried to rape her, shouldn't you give her the benefit of the doubt?  I had such a hard time with the way she treated Rachel when it came to that.  Family or not, you have been best friends with this girl your whole life, why wouldn't you believe her?  Her attitude just sucked.  I loved Rachel and couldn't understand why she would choose to be friends with someone like Candice.  That was the one part of the book that had me shaking my head.

I do recommend this one.  It's the first in a series.  Be warned  this end in a HUGE cliffhanger. So, the next book better come out soon!  I really need to know what happens next!

About the author:

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughter. Some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach…which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
