Publisher's Summary

Look, but don't touch.... She might as well wear a neon sign that says it. It just makes me want her more.

She might be above me in every way, but I still want her under me.

I've got no business touching her rich-girl skin, but that won't stop me from stealing a taste. Because rules were meant to be broken - especially when the prize is so fine. In a world where nothing is as it seems, what's buried beneath these lies?

Wow

So didn’t see the ending to this one. A great story of the wrong side of the law. Loved the characters and the events that made this book an awesome read. Narration was awesome too.

Finally a writer who knows what to do

Thank you Ms March for taking this genre where it SHOULD GO. This is what women who have lived through negative experiences like. The scenes where the couple go out in public are beautifully written and lifted this story up a notch. The twist ending was a masterstroke and it is obvious that the author has done her research on PTSD

I knew it I knew it

it didn't gell.,.I couldn't get into Valentina I just knew there was a 'right' twist coming. so I was a little smug when it turned out the way I expected but there wasn't any hinting at all so it kept me guessing ...as i saw 2 options. it was a good listen. I'm glad Hennessey is going to have his story as he deserves it.

Stellar!!!!!

Meghan March outdid herself with this tale. It is a gripping story ... not what you expect and totally engaging. The narration was stellar, the story line strong and interesting. The description says it all. There is a twist or two that is unexpected and this is a story that is credit worthy which I am glad to report after a long line of not worthy material over the last month! The hero is an "anti-hero" of sorts, there is a bit of competition from a worthy detective who has a history with the heroine .... and despite her proper, privileged upbringing she is torn between the two strong males. In the end I was not surprised at who she had chosen. The performance by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York is as expected, excellent. Credit or sale worthy!

Solid Story, Series and Narration …..

Gosh, I just can't get enough of this series!

Meghan March is such an amazing author! She really knows how to deliver a captivating story that keeps the listener in suspense while she weaves a plot full of action, steamy romance, and some surprising twists. Each story has a natural flow and transitions smoothly from one scene to the next, making them fun and easy to listen too. The characters have flaws, and their steamy dialogue and chemistry will have you smiling and blushing from the first to the last chapter. Just when you think you've already listened to her best, she goes and writes another five star hit! It's hard to choose a favorite; I love them all!

Beneath These Lies was an awesome love triangle, and I really enjoyed hearing all three POV's.

Andi Arndt and Sabastian York are two of the best narrators! When they narrate, you can feel the emotions and effort they put into the characters and dialogue. They make a great team and really bring the story to life.

Absolutely worth the time, and a credit!

Beneath Lands on Top... as usual

I am a huge fan of Meghan March. This book is a great trifecta of author, story and narrators. You can never go wrong with the York/Arndt combo. It seems that every time I finish a book in the Beneath Series that while I am satisfied with the ending for the hero and heroine of the book, I am always immediately ready for the next peek into the March NOLA Universe she has created through this series. So, please keep writing Ms March. I will keep reading... and listening.

Always love Meghan March's books!

Any additional comments?

Meghan's books are always a good read/listen. Loved the book despite the elephant in the room. Without giving spoilers, would a girl like that really fall for the one she does with what she knew about him at first. Decided to give story a 4 based on that even if I liked it regardless. Loved how it did end up ending, although I was sad for one person. Narration was wonderful as usual. Although I will say Sebastian York is only present for 15 out of 47 chapters so not exactly half. I almost always wish Sebadtian did most of it.

Surprisingly Amazing!!!

First I'll say that there are no spoilers in this review. This one was an unusual one for me; I was really irritated with the first half of this book. Wonderfully written and narrated, as always, but I was not happy with the way the author decided to take the story. That is until I intuited where the story was leading, then I found myself going with the flow and thoroughly loving it. I can't say much without giving it away, but this story has levels that makes it exciting, surprising, endearing, and super hot!! Another great addition to this series, and absolutely worth a credit!!

Best One Yet!!! LOVED IT!

LOVED THIS BOOK SO HARD!!!
This is now my favorite in this series! Loved the story line and the characters. Writing a review is almost impossible without giving away spoilers! Lets just say it was HOT, action packed and made me melt! And if you have read the other books in this series you are in for a serious treat! Meghan March blew me away with this one!!! LOVE a twisty ending!

And to make it even better...Andi Arndt & Sebastian York.....No need to say more!

MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MM DAZZLED THEN BLEW ME AWAY WITH THIS ONE

I can only confirm what's been said before..... this IS her best one yet. MM is an auto download Author for me - her books are always great listens that have all the ingredients I love in a story with wonderful characters and mind blowing plots. This listen has passion, romance, mystery, suspense, twists, secrets, danger, drama, angst, heat and love as a Judge's Daughter finds herself torn between a Gang Leader and a New Orleans Detective. Valentina prayed for an Alpha to sweep her off her feet - instead she got a hot, demanding, protective, jealous and dangerous Caveman.... and she couldn't of been happier.

If you haven't already found this talented Author yet then be prepared for a mind blowing treat as you get snared up in a tightly woven intricate web where you have to tread carefully as MM takes you on a magical journey that'll surprise, shock, entertain and wow you. Told mainly from Valentina's POV but both the males have their say too. A great pair of narrators who bring the action, passion and characters out from pages in a book and their skills convert them into living breathing individuals, generate mental images and bring forth bitter-sweet emotions.

Worth a credit? YES it definitely would have been as MM is a gifted storyteller.... but it's under $10 so I just bought it saving the credit for a more expensive book.

when to "opposite" worlds collide and become one!

What did you love best about Beneath These Lies?

Since the first page the book kept me very intrigue. In general is this a love story of two people who according to "society" are not expected to be together. However, the chemistry is there since day one. It has an ending that I did not see coming right until the end so "Bravo!" for Mach. The only reason why I did not gave the book "story" 5 starts is because of the "love triangle", which to be honest didn't bother me that much since I tried to keep an open mind.

What did you like best about this story?

The opposites attract obviously is the most noticeable, but I will also say that I loved the way the characters pushed each other to be better, and probably the best part that I wasnt expecting the way the hero "came from the shadows to the light".

Have you listened to any of Andi Arndt and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

They are a power couple in Audio books, keep it coming!

Any additional comments?

Looking forward the next ones! It will be nice to see Henessy get his happy ending!

Conflicted

I'm having a hard time listening to this. I think Valentina is an idiot and she irritates me to no end with the way she is treating Hen... she doesn't deserve a man like him...

I get that there some twist that will all of a sudden make her choice right but until the I'm struggling to get to it.

The ONLY 2 reasons I am still listening is because I love Andy and Sebastian... even though there not enough Sebastian... and the reviews...

I'll edit this is my mind changes at the end but I'm 1/2 way through and I've been irritated the whole time.

Not my fave book in this series so far! I hope Hen let's her ass go because he deserves someone who's truly into him... not this chick who keeps playing games!

UPDATE (Finished)

I'm glad I stuck it out and listened to the end. One of my theories was confirmed and the book wrapped up some what nicely... still a few loose ends like.. what happened to the driver and how did Rex or Rix or however you spell it become the head of an gang?

Valentine got her absolution or justification one guy but the truth it still was nonsense...

The author Meghan March is what turns me off. She wrote this book that she knew or hope would throw the reader off.. Doesn't that mean it would foster discussions and opinions? However if you don't completely agree with Meghan she will delete your comments after she says unflattering things.

No bueno.. grow some backbone...

Not my Favorite!

Would you consider the audio edition of Beneath These Lies to be better than the print version?

No. This is one book I feel I would have enjoyed better reading.

What did you like best about this story?

The twist at the end that answers the major points of the story.

Have you listened to any of Andi Arndt and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

They were both excellent as always.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Frustrated for a good portion of the book. The storyline as it was laid out during 95% of the book was a little far fetched. I just wasn't buying into it. The last 5% does explain it.

Any additional comments?

My issue with this audio book is that we don't hear Sebastian York until the 2:10 point. A crime in my book. Nothing against Andi, she is flawlessly perfect. It is just that we get WAY to much of Valentina's POV. I think Andi narrates about 80% of the book even though Sebastian York voices 2 characters; Rix and Hennessy. I actually considered abandoning this book. I stuck it out though. The last 40 mins upgraded what would have been a 3 star story rating to a 4. I will listen to book six.

Addictive

Well I read this series out of synch and it didn't matter one bit. Each time I finished a book it became a firm favourite and this is no exception. Another bad boy alpha male, and I've got to say Meghan knows how to write a true alpha male, and Rix is up there with the very best of them (he also does a fantastic job of hiding his mushy centre), Then we have rich girl Valentino, closet artist, and owner of a thriving art gallery. I've got to say that these two made the perfect couple, Rix's rough to Valentino's smooth, fire and ice, opposites attract and all that. The story told in dual POV had me double guessing the hows, the whys, the ifs and the buts. I was hooked from the get go, so well written and I loved the insight into previous characters. What a fantastic series. I can't wait for more.

I love Rix and Valentina’s story. Their chemistry is off the charts hot and the storyline is full of intrigue and suspense with exciting twists and turns. It’s a brilliant series that I’ll read/listen to again and again. I highly recommend!

One of my favourite romantic pairs

Rix/ Ricks is expressed incredibly well on the page. March has managed to successfully create an unapologetic hero; one that is alpha and knows it. The female protagonist is intelligent and determined, which wins over beauty and softness all the time (yet she still possesses these traits). The dynamics of this relationship works because the main characters are constantly challenging each other, and the male protagonist never relents from chasing the woman he loves. Extremely sexy.
