Kidnap and vengeance
Stephanie Tyler certainly seems able to churn out books at a fast rate - I seem to often find Iím picking up her latest book, just a couple of months after the last one. There are similarities between them all, but they have their differences, too. Lie with Me is more enjoyable than the last few Iíve read.
As always with Tylerís books, we have a central romance and a side-character romance. And,
as always, the romance progresses almost instantly into the bedroom, after which the characters actually begin to find out about each other and mesh. There isnít any great characterization in these books particularly; itís about the plot and action and variety of situations in which our heroes and heroines find themselves.
Appealing heroine Skylar Slavin has recently undergone a kidney transplant and isnít at full health.
She hasn't heard from her father in months, after having spent two months with him
when he donated her kidney. When Cameron Moore comes to take her away, saying her father has sent him to keep her safe, she doesnít realize sheís actually being kidnapped.
Cameron hates Skylarís father, Gabriel, for many reasons and knows that he can get back at Gabriel through his daughter. But Cameron doesnít
foresee the effect that Skylar will have on him, and that he will find himself protecting her at all costs, including possibly failing in his vengeance mission.
Lie with Me is a good read with shoot-outs and action interspersed
by calm moments of discussion. The side plot between Riley and Dylan I found less interesting, and thereís a hint about the next book (between Olivia and Zane) in this story. Although part of a series, these books seem to work
alright on their own. Itís not brilliant writing by any means, but Lie with Me is more enjoyable than some of her others and worth a read.
