Release Blitz! Lies By C.A. HArms

LIES Banner

Teaser 1"Some things are just too far out of our control.”

FBI Agent Joshua Phoenix goes undercover…Deep. Thrust into a world of drugs and criminal activity, integrating himself into the Russian Mafia turned out to be much more than Josh bargained for. It’s dark and it’s dangerous. The lives they destroy along the way will never be the same. The things he is forced to do will haunt him forever. Even more importantly, he never planned on meeting her… A chance encounter with Real Estate Agent Gabriella Shannon, has Josh questioning his ability to complete his mission. And now the dark world may consume them both. He’s in too deep. Leaving now would only risk the safety of those around him. But when his cover’s blown Josh is forced to make a decision that will reroute his future. One decision. The hardest decision he will ever have to make in his life. And those he meant to protect will be the ones who suffer the most… 
It is hard enough to begin a relationship when the two people have busy lives, it is even harder when one of them is an undercover FBI agent and goes on assignment right after meeting that special someone.  I really felt for Josh because he finds Gabby right before starting his undercover assignment.  He doesn’t want to lose Gabby by being unavailable but at the same time he knows that he will be gone for long periods of time.  Is he selfish?  Honestly I don’t think he was trying to be, when you find that special someone you don’t want to walk away.

Gabby I have a tiny issue with.  Overall I liked her sassiness and how she spoke her mind.  My issue was that she knew from the start that Josh was an FBI agent; anyone with half a brain could understand that there will be times that a case is unfortunately priority over personal time.  I’d hate to see if she was a military wife cause honestly if she was like this with an FBI agent I would hate to see how she was during a deployment.  I’m sorry that is just a hot topic for me, don’t start a relationship when you can’t handle being apart. 

Lies was a pretty quick read but I will warn you it does end in a cliffhanger.  Josh and Gabby’s story isn’t done.  It’s not a throw your kindle in anger type cliffhanger, it’s more like an “oh shit it’s about to get good” type of cliffhanger.  C.A. Harms is impressing me more and more with her writing.  Each book I have read of hers has improved and I have enjoyed more and more.  I am anxiously looking forward to not just the next book but more from this author as well.

Placing my elbows at the edge of the countertop, I collapsed on the barstool, feeling exhausted. I had never been on a date where I felt like I needed a vacation only two hours in. “What can I get ya?” the young guy behind the bar asked. “A decoy, maybe a smoke bomb.” He looked at me in confusion. “Date from hell, dude. Ever had one of those moments where you’re wondering how the fuck you got yourself in such a mess?” He chuckled and looked up over my shoulder. “Oh.” He smirked and nodded. “Marissa.” The fact he knew her name made me cringe. I had a feeling this was worse than I had initially thought. “Oh fuck, what? She’s a stalker or some freaky chick that’s gonna claim we’re engaged? I’ll spend months getting her to leave me the fuck alone, won’t I?” He handed me a beer and shook his head, chuckling to himself, then poured a shot of tequila and set it on the bar next to my beer. “You’re gonna need that.” I let my head fall to my hands and grumbled as I mentally cussed out Greyson and myself for even showing up. “Good luck, man.” I didn’t even lift my head. It was pointless; I knew he was eating this up. His laughter faded as he worked his way down the bar, serving others. “I see you don’t suffer from coulrophobia,” came a soft whisper from my right. I immediately lifted my head and was taken aback by the girl sitting at my side. How had I missed her? Oh, I know, I’d had tunnel vision as I ran from Cruella toward my next drink. “What?” I asked, yet all I could focus on was her piercing blue eyes. I had never seen eyes that blue before. “The fear of clowns,” she stated. “Coulrophobia.” I remained focused on her beauty, taking the time to look at each feature, wondering why in the hell she couldn’t have been the brunette from the coffee shop. My night would have been a whole hell of a lot better if she was in Marissa’s place. I knew I was staring, but I couldn’t stop myself. She had mentioned something about clowns, but I was lost. I had no idea what she was talking about. My gaze fell to her plump, full lips, and I smirked. No red lipstick graced them. They held only a sheer film of shiny gloss, and I loved that she preferred the more natural look. When they curved upward in a smile, I didn’t feel even the slightest bit embarrassed that she knew I was checking her out so closely. When her eyes met mine, she nudged her head toward Marissa. “I was referring to your date. She kinda resembles a clown.” I stared at her and could see she was fighting back her laughter. She lifted her drink to her lips and took a small sip before lowering it. I could no longer hold back my own smile. “I fucking hate clowns.”
