I thought the man threatening my mother’s life was my biggest problem. But he’s not.

An accidental touch has me wondering what if.
Little do I know he’d end up showing me the truth to the lie I’ve been living.
What if I dare hope Alec is the one truth amongst all the lies I tell myself?
I loved Reece and Alec's story
I was captivated from start to finish, Alec made me swoon and laugh, I loved the balance in this book of suspense and romance.
Alec is an undercover agent and Reece is a woman who has been lied to deceived and tricked into a relationship out of obligation to a man who was once her best friend growing up. When Reece lost her father and her mother became ill following the accident Reece became dependent on her friend who took advantage of her and her fortune and used it to fund illegal activity's.
Reece and her mother were pretty much prisoners in their own home but Alec came along and just his presence gave her the courage to break free and start living for herself and support her mother.
The plot was exciting. Alec landed himself a position as Reece's body guard, he is undercover on a case but the team orchestrate it so he he ends up employed by Reece's fiance to keep an eye on her, his job is to keep tabs on Reece and report back to him. Alec's combat and martial arts skills that lands him the position was so hot.
A friendship develops between Reece and Alec and although she isn't aware he is undercover she begins to trust him which his hard for her to do with her past experiences. The lies we tell ourselves is a slow burn romance with lots of action in other areas to keep you turning the pages.
I loved the banter between Alec and Wyatt who was his eyes and ears while he stayed in the home with Reece and her fiance. I can't wait for Wyatt's story he brought lightness and banter in tense situations , I have a feeling his humour was a front though, there was hints that he has an interesting story to tell so I am looking forward to the next book too.
This is a great series, I found this book so much different to previous books by Michelle, the plot was descriptive, the characters likable and the balance was great, I was so relaxed reading this book despite the suspense, angst and drama, it was a lot lighter than previous books which had a darker theme.
A must read for anyone who loves action, suspense and a whole lot of swoon.
