Synopsis: Forced together by fate, bound together by desire
Framed for a double murder, Delta Force operative Cameron Moore is given a new lease on life by the CIA—provided he pays them back by doing their black ops dirty work. But now Cam is ready to renegotiate the deal, and he thinks he’s found the perfect bargaining chip: Skylar Slavin, bestselling author of espionage thrillers and the daughter of the CIA man who saved Cam from a prison sentence.
Skylar has been living in anonymity, never suspecting that someone so dangerous—and so desirable—would plunge her into a world as treacherous as one of her spy novels. But how can Cam go through with his plan to kidnap Skylar when just the sight of her sets off an explosive attraction he’s never experienced before? And when Skylar falls prey to an even more perilous threat, this special ops soldier must call upon all his combat skills to protect the one person who can help him win his freedom—and the only woman he’s ever loved.
In Lie With Me, we meet Cameron Moore. Delta Force Operative, who's job is the CIA's black ops dirty work--payment for keeping him out of jail. Driven by a need to escape the man who gave him a second chance at a free life, Cam, along with his best, and only trusted friend Dylan, come up with a plan to aid them by capturing bestselling author Skylar Slavin, daughter of CIA agent Gabriel Creighton. The plan, was to kidnap Sky and hold her as leverage for Cam so he'd be able to negotiate with Gabriel about his freedoom. What he never expected was to desire his daughter more than anything. But just as he is prepared to leave with Sky, they discover she is being threatened by unknown forces. Cam is thrust into protecting the woman who holds the key to his freedom--and his heart.
As far as the characters, I found they were enjoyable, and extremely stubborn. But there was depth to each of them, including the subs. I especially enjoyed reading about Cameron. His troubled past and present life made for an interesting first novel. Skylar's character was well developed, she is a survivor, and determined not to be taken care of by any means. The problem I had with this book, was that for me, the plot just dragged on. Granted, I liked the idea that the characters had to develop a relationship before deciding, "I love you" was there out. But having the sub characters interrupt that story line got annoying. From Cameron's POV to Skylars, from there it went to Dylan, who in turn went to Riley then Cameron and then Dylan again!! I love that Stephanie Tyler gave us an idea as to why each character ended up where they did, I just wish it wouldn't have gone from one thing to the next so quickly. You get caught up in trying to find out what happens between two people, and then it changes abruptly to see what the other two are doing, and then the single sub-characters as well.
I recommend it. If you like action-packed romance novels, with hot sexy Black Ops, this series is definitely for you! ;)
