Deceive Me (Part One Broken People Duet)
Deceive Me by Vi Cater is a wonderful book, all the feels are there, great character development… but it is a cliffhanger. I go so involved, then… next book out on…. It was fun, can’t wait for the next read.
Layla and Jared were in the foster care system together until something happened one day and she was taken away to the hospital. Seven years later she walks back into his life, his phys ed class at collage. He is now Jay, and life has hardened him more than he was. He had looked for her, but couldn’t find her. Layla had been adopted by the counselor that had helped her through the trauma, she had never gone back to the foster house. She had never gotten an answer on what had happened to Jared, now here he was, harder, different name, maybe not the same person she thought him to be at all.
His father is telling him one thing, she believes another, can they find their way through the maze of lies and deception before this new life comes to end them?
Five stars, a must read if you enjoy dark, edgy, collage romances. Definitely not YA but New Adult. Some trigger themes, bullying, verbal and physical abuse. But Ms. Carter pulls it together is a tapestry of words that flow and catch you from the beginning and won’t let you go to the last word. Then you are looking for the next book.
