Two sisters, one shocking secret that could destroy them both

After being acquitted of murder, Tamia Luke is on a mission to reclaim everything she lost. Her reputation, her job, and—most important—her boyfriend Brandon. Although the scandalous secrets that once came between them are a thing of the past, Tamia knows that regaining his trust won’t be easy, especially now that he’s dating another woman. Convinced that she and Brandon belong together, Tamia will stop at nothing to get him back…

Fiona never meant to betray her sister, but it was the only way to keep herself out of trouble. Now that she’s landed a job that has her hobnobbing with famous athletes, she’s more determined than ever to hide her dark past. Even if it kills her…

REVIEWS

This fast-paced story has so many twists and turns you’ll get dizzy, but you won’t be able to put the book down because you’ll be dying to know what happens next. The love scenes are scorching and the characters are so complex that one can easily picture the scenes as if watching a movie.

Tamia Luke has just been acquitted of a murder that she did not commit. Brandon Chambers was the attorney responsible for her defense — and her former love. Now that she is a free woman she is determined to get back all that was snatched from her, including Brandon. Brandon has moved on and into another relationship, despite the fact that he still has strong feelings for Tamia. As she tries to regain control of her life, secrets from the past keep leaking out. Tamia and Brandon struggle to overcome hurdle after hurdle; will they ever be together again?

Deception by Naomi Chase (also writing as Maureen Smith) delivers a steamy follow-up to her romance thriller Exposed. After being acquitted of murder, Tamia Luke is on a mission to reclaim everything she lost: her reputation, her job, and — most important — her boyfriend, Brandon. Although the scandalous secrets that once came between them are a thing of the past, Tamia knows that regaining his trust won’t be easy, especially now that he’s dating another woman. Convinced that she and Brandon belong together, Tamia will stop at nothing to get him back…

Tamia Luke has been saved by her prince in shining armor, the renowned Brandon Chambers, son of the prominent Lieutenant Governor Bernard Chambers, and the man she loves but betrayed in the worst way. Tasting freedom is bittersweet, especially when she has to watch her nemesis claim the victory with her lover, her best friend, and her very own soul mate. Brandon plans a future with Cynthia, one befitting his family’s social status and expectations, but his heart palpitates to a different beat for Tamia. Fiona Powell is Tamia’s sister, and she’s guilty of envying her sister, riding her sister’s coattails, and sacrificing her sister at the ultimate expense…guilty on all accounts and some unnamed. Sisters by blood, sisters by deception, and sisters in every sense of the word but disconnected by secrets that these two sisters bear the burden for the sake of being sisters…Ms. Chase did a great job of penning this book as a stand alone with its captivating characters, dynamic dialogue, electric scenarios, and tempestuous cliffhanging ending. I’m really anticipating book #3 to see how Ms. Chase masterminds this journey.
