Title: Deceptive Innocence
Author: Kyra Davis
Publisher: Pocket Star-Simon & Schuster
Release Date: January 13, 2014
I’m so glad I picked this book to read out of all the books I have on my NetGalley dashboard. I would classify Bellona-the heroine-as Nikkita on a mission that gets tangled in the games of love when she gets involved with the wrong man. Lander Gables-now there’s a name-is the youngest son of the man who Bellona believes framed her mother for a crime that he-the father-actually committed.
Part one of the story begins four years after Bellona’s mother commits suicide in prison, and understandably Bellona wants revenge on the people, the family she thinks put her mother in prison.
Deceptive Innocence was not the kind of story I expected from a chick lit author, I was reminded strongly of Gideon in Bared To You, but Lander is…softer where Gideon was all hard edges. The sex is mind blowing and intense, and the cliff hanger leaves you thinking that there is more to Lander Gables that we still have yet to meet.
Part one was more Bellona’s story which leaves me wondering and hoping that in part two that we will get to see and experience more of who Lander Gables really is.
And of course, there is more to Deceptive Innocence than just Bellona and Lander; the secondary characters really stood out to me. I really felt for Jessica Gable and I just wanted to box Travis Gable between the ears!
I just can’t wait for Part two, I may have to find a way to sneak a copy tonight. There is just no way I can sleep and not know what happens when Lander finds out who Bellona really is.
