“Liar, liar, pants on fire.”

The words scrawled on the back of my newest stalker mail makes my blood run cold. I have no idea if it’s the lie I know, or one that I don’t.

Since arriving back into Shadow Grove, I’ve been stalked, tormented, chased and almost killed. I’ve been lied to, repeatedly, by people I was growing to trust.

Liar.

That word haunts me. Someone knows more about my life than I do. Someone is taunting me with answers and teasing me with secrets. Am I desperate enough to fall for more deception?

Archer and his boys made a huge mistake when they lied to me. They thought they could play me but they’re about to learn that they’ve met their match. No one stabs Madison Kate and gets away with it.

Review –

OMG! This book was even better than the first one!

I think this was for two reasons: 1) this book brought the steam; and 2) knowing the characters helped a lot.  All four of the main characters in this book extremely interesting.  I adore Steele, Kodi is adorable, and Madison Kate is a badass I can’t help but root for.  Even Archer, who is a complete ass most of the time has his moments.  

In addition to the characters, what really makes this book so great is the mystery.   Though we are trying to figure out who is trying to hurt Madison Kate, Archer and his friends are an even more interesting mystery.  We get let into their world a little bit more, find out more about their backgrounds, especially Archer’s.  That and just seeing the characters interact is what keeps me coming back for more.

There was a lot more action (if that’s possible) and Madison Kate get the brunt of it to the point that she’s accidentally overdosed on Fentanyl, then given a dose of Narcan and put in a trunk of a car to, what, die anyway? Archer saves her this time and later, after having recuperated from the OD, she finds out that her dick of a father has sold her and her trust fund to Archer. Cliffhanger!!

(Screams)

I am going to listen to any book now and decompress before starting the next in the Madison Kate series.

This is a reverse harem, so keep that in mind if that isn’t something you enjoy.  But, if you are okay with reverse harem I highly recommend this series.

Reconciling what her heart wants with fears for the future, Sophie must learn to let go of the past and embrace possibilities she never knew were options…

Review –

In The Sister, the sixth installment in The Boss series, you can expect a lot of movement in regards to romantic, family, and work relationships.

I wanted to love this book. I really did. and I did enjoy it! I enjoyed the dynamic between Sophie, Sasha, Susan and Molly. AND the fact that Sophie finally admitted to herself that she didn’t want to be in Mode anymore and gave it to Deja, and that she finally understood that she didn’t have to feel guilt about what she has.
As far as El-Mudad, Sophie and Neil… yeah I don’t know if I’m feeling it. I came into this series with a love for Sophie and Neil’s love and bringing in a third person just doesn’t allow focus on Sophie and Neil. I don’t know, I don’t necessarily hate it or even dislike it. The whole polygamy aspect doesn’t bother me. Plus I LOVE El-Mudad. Maybe if that had been the initial plot I wouldn’t be on the fence about it. I do appreciate the respect that all three have for each other through it all though. Just not sure if I’m ready for the full focus to no longer be on Sophie and Neil. In the beginning the love between them was so BIG it didn’t seem like there was room in their hearts for anyone else.
