About this ebook

 From the USA Today bestselling author of the Unbreakable series, comes a sexy, heart-wrenching novel…Betrayed by Lies.
As an ATF agent, bringing down the Estrada cartel has been my sole mission. I’m a skilled agent, determined and fearless, but a relentless pursuit and a willingness to risk everything almost killed me.

A year later, when an opportunity in Los Angeles presents itself, I jump at the chance to start over and rebuild the career and life I almost lost.

Kate Stevens was not part of my new plan. I never expected she would be the one to save me from my past. She was exactly what I needed—smart, beautiful and independent. I finally have a future I look forward to.

Only nothing in my life ever goes according to plan. Losing Kate is not an option, but fate seems poised to ruin me, and there isn’t a damn thing I can do about it.

A big fan of the Bound and Broken series by author Rebecca Shea, I was thrilled to get my hands on BETRAYED BY LIES, because, ATF Agent Sam Cortez. Rough doesn't begin to cover what Sam has been through in the last few months. After betrayal and chaos ensued in his hometown of Phoenix, AZ, Sam has moved on to Los Angeles, eager to begin the next chapter in his career and his life. Having suffered some heartbreak in Phoenix, Sam isn't really looking for love, but, as is often the case, love so often finds us when we're not expecting it. When Sam meets Kate Stevens', his boss's sister, things just click. I really enjoyed seeing Sam happy, and involved in a loving, passionate, sexy relationship with someone that wanted him for him. Although BETRAYED BY LIES is billed as a companion book to the Bound and Broken series, and can be read as a standalone, I absolutely recommend reading the first two books in order to have a better understanding of Sam's background, the reason that he does the things that he does, and, just generally, what makes him tick. Besides the fact that both BROKEN BY LIES (Book 1) and BOUND BY LIES (Book 2) are riveting, action-paced, edge of your seat romantic suspense that should not be missed, they give great insight into Sam, and really provide a great jumping off point in getting his back story. 5 super swoony sexy suspenseful stars for Rebecca, and for Sam and Kate. Do yourself a favor and read this series. You'll love it.

Betrayed by Lies is the third book in the Bound and Broken series. Rebecca is one of my go to authors. I read everything she writes. Her writing is always fantastic, emotional and often heartbreaking. It also helps that she's an incredible human being. I've read all of Rebecca's books and Sam is one of my favorite characters. I know everyone loves Alex, and I do too, but there was just something about Sam that has called to me since the beginning of this series. I actually rooted for Emilia to pick him at one point :). But, I'm glad Rebecca knew what she was doing. Sam finally gets his story. He needs a fresh start and he gets a job in LA. He's still recovering emotionally, but he's ready to move on in all aspects of his life. When he gets a call from his boss's sister about a house for rent, he's ready to get out of his hotel and this seems perfect. He wasn't prepared for the connection he felt for Kate when he first laid eyes on her. It was a shock, but a welcome one. He wanted Kate and he wasn't going to apologize for it. Kate is an attorney and she's a control freak. But something about the sexy Sam Cortez does something to Kate and her resolve. She's dealing with her own things and trying to just work and live her life. One night with Sam and whiskey changes everything. She wants more. And she wants it with Sam. Is it too soon for Sam and Kate? What happens when you know it's right? I loved this story! Sam is everything I wanted him to be and so much more! Kate is smart, beautiful and sassy. She's the perfect match for him. I loved seeing Alex and Emilia again! I know I always say this at the end of one of Rebecca's books, but I want more!! I run my fingers through her hair and, for a brief moment, I realize that this is what peace feels like. It's calm and happiness. It's comfortable and understated. She's my future. She's my motivation to move forward and leave the past behind me. She is what I've been missing.
