Sweet Baby Desus in a manger! Y’all better get ready, because this conclusion is crazy, fantastic! I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that was thrown my way in this book.
Stolen Lies pics up and follows Talia, Kosta and the Demetriou crew right at a year after the major cliffhanger that we were left with a the ending of Hidden Truths. We finally find out what happened to Talia. The question is…What will Kosta do and say about information surrounding Talia’s disappearance when he comes face to face with the details? Who will be the recipient or recipients of his revenge? Will it be a new enemy or someone he once loved?
Talia was sweet, innocent, yet sassy in the first book. The Mafia Princess inside her shines in this book. We see a strength in her come out like never before. Sometimes you can find strength in the smallest of packages and that’s what happened here. She found hers. It got her through, gave her purpose and focus, and patience. She knew she needed to plan to escape perfectly to be able to get out of the situation she was in at the beginning of the book.
I loved the Talia we got to see in this book. She was so amazing. She was even more loving and nurturing than in the first book. BUT she was also tough as nails and she had to make some life changing, split second decisions and she did them without hesitation. I think she grew into who she was destined to be in this book.
Kostas was suffocating himself in so much grief in the beginning missing Talia. That was hard to read. He was pining and letting himself go. I was glad for the realization of just how much he loved her to hit him, but hated it had to happen for him in that way. Now, in this book we get to see glimpses of a much softer side to Kostas. The was he is with Talia, made my heart-a- flutter. Kostas is definitely a character that makes heart rates go up and panties drop. There is something to be said for a man that can touch a woman tenderly with a hand that also was used to end someone’s life. So. Freakin.Hot!
I don’t want to give anything about this book away. So let me say, this story is a web weaved slap full of lies, secrets, scandal, and sex. It’s about murder, kidnapping, revenge and pure hatred. It’s full of so many suspense-filled moments of pure adrenaline rushing, heart-stopping, nail biting, hubby bring me some wine before I throw my kindle, moments. IT IS OFF THE FREAKIN CHARTS THAT GOOD!!

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- There isn’t anything hotter that Talia and Kostas… Maybe like the eighth circle of Hades, but that’s about it. They are hotter than everything and everyone else though , and that’s hot AF!!
🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! HEA! Holy flippin’ flapjacks! Talk about clawing, kicking, scratching, dragging your way through a bullet blazing war zone, just to then walk two miles across hot coals get home to find your home taken out by tsunami. Yeah, it felt like this for this poor couple to get to their well earned HEA! But it wait fast paced so the wait cane quickly!
🔫 Trigger Warning-This book does have some references to the scene in the first book that could be considered triggers for some. They are not overly graphic. This is a “mobish” book so expect the typical blood and gore that comes with such. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.
