Book two of the "Lies We Tell" series (after Taking Him) explores the backstory of Ellie's friend Kara. Distressed to be a virgin at the ripe old age of 25, Kara seeks help from Ellie's overprotective brother Vin when her solution, a one-night stand, turns dangerous. Vin's rescue includes a dose of criticism of Kara's behavior. After a brief standoff, Kara and Vin develop a kinky relationship that meets both their needs. They experience a series of high-voltage encounters before they discover there is more to their relationship than sex. The duo share with each other their dark pasts: about Vin's mentally ill mother and Kara's scarred wrists. Now Kara finds she is pregnant and realizes that she deserves to be loved.
VERDICT This very accessible BDSM erotic romance illustrates the healing powers of sexual role play and engages readers with issues of mental health in a straightforward and realistic fashion. The New Zealand setting and the well-depicted no-holds-barred sex scenes make for a high-interest read. Highly recommended.
