Kayla Harris and Connor Thorne have known each other for years.  When they first met, he was a rookie Secret Service Agent assigned to protect the President’s rebellious teenage daughter…Kayla.  She had a crush on him and he liked her as well, but there was no way a Secret Service Agent assigned to guard the President’s daughter was going to be allowed to date her!  So, the romance went unrequited and Kayla went off to college to become a lawyer while her father served a second term in office with Connor remaining with the Secret Service.

Now, Kayla has graduated college and law school and set up practice on her own.  She owns a shelter for battered women and children in her spare time, but has someone else manage it.  Everyone believes Connor has left the Secret Service as a disgraced agent, but he is really still working for them only now he is undercover and has infiltrated a group of criminals.  The head honcho of the bad guys is out for revenge against his wife and daughter who left him.  Not knowing who they were, Kayla helped them escape through her shelter.  Kayla now has a target on her back and Connor overhears an attack being planned on Kayla at her office.  He barely makes it there in time to rescue her, and then the action and suspense really take off!

It was interesting that the one who rebelled as a teen had given her life over to God and was now trying to live the quiet life and help others.  Connor is still in protect mode.  The past feelings they had for one another return to the surface and now that Kayla is a woman, can they have a relationship or will Kayla’s enemy take her down before they even have their first date?

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
