Publisher's Summary

Tell me a secret....

CJ Carmichael hasn't been able to get the vivacious blonde he spent four delirious days with off his mind. The blonde who was completely off-limits, but he couldn't deny.

Tell me a secret....

CJ had no intention of pursuing her, but Tara Stevens knew what she wanted and it was him. Now six months later, their time together still haunts him. As much as he's tried to talk himself out of seeing her again, the craving is just too powerful.

Tell me a secret....

Tara is more than willing to spend an entire fantasy weekend with CJ. More than willing to hand herself over to him completely and fulfill his every desire. More than willing to pretend he owns her despite their age difference and Kayne's disapproval.

Tell me a secret....

Sometimes fantasy becomes a reality. Sometimes people fall in love before they even know it - before they even know each other - and after it's too late.

Tell me a secret....

Sometimes, beneath the sweetest secrets are the most deceptive lies.

Lie with Me is a dark erotic romance and can be heard as a standalone novel. Please pay close attention to the use of the words dark, erotic, and romance. It has intense sexual situations, mild abuse and some violence. Listener discretion is advised.

Favorite favorite favorite

Can I fill this review up with just the word favorite?

If you didn’t guess, I loved this book the most of the series. What started out as such a light hearted, forbidden, and dirty romance between CJ and Tara soon turned into a dark and raging angry tale of an underworld that had my stomach in knots and my jaw on the ground. I shed tears for these characters and I don’t do that lightly. It was very unexpected.

Sam Crowley and Muffy Newtown were superb. Perfect choices for this book.

CJ Carmichael & Tara Stevens

▪▪▪Review contains spoilers▪▪▪

Audible Escapes review. Dual POV. Book 4 in the 5 book Decadence After Dark series. Muffy Newtown's growly voice is extremely irritating through out but Sam Crowley did a great job.

Love this series!!

The story continues to the siblings and teammates. New story with the reminiscences of the first 2 books. M.Never does not disappoint her readers with very intriguing storylines, intricate details and attention to timelines and best of all, hot sexual scenes.

Smokin’ HOT

This is one of my highest rated reviews in quite some time!

The story was good. HEA of course, but not with too much drama or too quickly in love. Family drama, age differences, sexual preferences, life truths, all explored and compromised on or resolved.

Narration fit pretty well, never sounding scripted or irritating :)

Truly my favorite M. Never story so far, but I have many left still to catch up on. Excited to add the rest of this series to my libraries!

Never disappointed with M.Never books

Tara and CJ have just as good a storyline as Kayne and Ellie. I absolutely love this series. Again as with my previous reviews if you are looking for a great BDSM you will enjoy this series and again it is not for the pruddish. Looking forward to the next book and sad that it is the last in the series.
