Gripping, suspenseful page turner with one helluva cliffhanger, Kiss Me With Lies will leave you punching the pre-order button for the sequel, Bury Me With Lies. S.M. Soto leaves readers on the edge in this duet.
Yes, it’s a suspense. But there is a love story in here. A sexy, scintillating, pussy clenching love story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Bad boy billionaire Sebastian, or Baz for those he likes, comes across as cold and manipulative, but we get to see his POV and there’re a good guy in there. A good guy who’s also a master in the bedroom. And he falls for Mackenzie, a girl from his past he doesn’t recognize.
After her sister’s murder, her life falls apart to some degree. Nine years later, she’s determine to bring her sister’s killer to justice. As she searches for the truth, she falls for Baz (and who the F wouldn’t?). But, we don’t know everything about Baz and it’s conceivable he helped to murder her sister.
At the end of Kiss Me With Lies, it’s not looking so good for Mackenzie and Baz, but I have confidence he’s going to read that stack of papers she left him and he’s going to see that she’s not the gold digger his friends painted her out to be. And, I don’t believe for a minute he killed her sister. But, it won’t shock me if it turns out he helped his spoiled rich friends get away with the murder.
I’ll admit that at times I had a strong urge to scream at Mackenzie. I mean, first, has the chick EVER watched Cold Case files? And, her sister’s murder is a cold case. Only a total dumbass would save evidence linking themselves to a murder.
So, when she’s hunting around their offices – offices that didn’t even exist when they were all in highschool and the murder occurred – I was like, do yourself a favor and at least do some research on how cold cases are solved. Because it’s not by going through someone’s desk ten years after the murder.
But then, hey, she actually finds the clues she needs in someone’s office. So, yes, some suspension of disbelief is required to complete this book.
All that said, murderers aren’t always the most intelligent. They very often do make stupid mistakes that land them in prison. And, these rich spoiled kids believe themselves to be untouchable. So, why would they bother to go burn those bloody clothes linking them to a murder? Better to leave them buried because who would ever find the post it note with the coordinates leading them to said evidence? I mean, after all, it’s in a safe of an office that didn’t exist at the time of the murder.
All of that aside, towards the end, I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. And somehow I KNOW there is more to Baz. He’s going to come through and have a mind boggling backstory. My prediction is Mackenzie and Baz are going to end up working together to bring down the monsters. And it’s going to be a hot, sexy, dangerous road to justice. And I for one can’t wait to read the sequel. My only complaint is that it’s not available RIGHT NOW to read.
