Web of Deceit by Lauren Reign
Series: The Deceptive Lovers #1
Genres: Military/Police Romance
FBI Special Agent Colton Brady is an important person in Kalliope Winters’s life. He’s been her savior, pulling her out of the darkest of days and rescuing her from herself on more than one occasion. She trusts him implicitly, but he’s hiding something, and it may cost them their lives. A cracked serial killer obsessed with Kalli is stalking her. She’s completely unaware of this until she wakes up painfully ziptied to a chair, severely beaten, and close to death. Now she has to rely on Jaxxon, Colton’s twin brother, a man she’s craved since adolescence, to keep her safe.
Jaxxon is moody, arrogant, and bossy as all hell. His demeanor is as lethal as his sinfully good looks and he will stop at nothing to keep his current assignment, Kalli, alive. But Jaxxon is also lying to her.
This book is really great! I love Romantic Suspense and this is the perfect novel. Colton has been a very important person in Kallie’s life while Kalli has always been in love with his twin brother Jaxxon. However she doesn’t feel that he returns that love. When Kalli is kidnapped and tortured she and Jaxxon are thrown together as he becomes her bodyguard. I love that Jaxxon is hiding a secret and the way these two are brought together. I mean who wouldn’t want two hot FBI agents watching out for them?
This book takes you on a ride which made for some excellent reading. I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to end and can’t wait for the next book. The characters are all very well written. I love how strong Kalli is despite what she went through. Jaxxon is the perfect alpha male who just happens to carry a gun!
He cocks his head to the side. “I’m sorry?”
“Or a wife or something?” I add just in case. I haven’t seen a ring on his finger, but Jaxxon doesn’t strike me as someone who would wear jewelry even if he were taken.
He places both palms on the island, leaning toward me slightly, scowling. “Kalli, I get that you don’t know me very well, so let me inform you on the kind of man I am. I am not the kind of man who if I had a good woman waiting on me, I would be sharing a roof with another woman. I am not the kind of man that would spend my time protecting you if my woman were alone,unprotected, someplace else. And I am definitely not the kind of man who would call someone who wasn’t his woman ‘gorgeous.’ You get me?”
His comment would be seriously erotic, if he didn’t look so chilling while saying it. It’s annoying that he can’t just smile and have a normal conversation. “I’m surprised, I mean with your lovely, sunny disposition and all…” I mumble, while jumping off the chair. A knock on the door has both our heads turning.
