Contemporary Romance, Multi-cultural/Multi-racial Romance
A fling with her best friend's reclusive business partner should've been harmless.
When Emma meets him, the only way she's looking to be tied down is in the literal sense. But Avner—shady hacker, off-the-books investigator, occasional spy—takes her breath away. He's the first man who doesn't turn to mush under her sexual spell: a fact that makes what's between them very different, and very real.
Beautiful and uninhibited, Emma is everything Avner thought she would be and more. Yet his deadly past and dark duties can never be forgotten…not even as he succumbs to their seductive intimacy. But for the first time he's after something of his own, as well.
And now that he's found Emma, he'll protect her, no matter what. Because anything worth loving is worth fighting for.
But nothing about Avner is remotely harmless.
Soon, Avner has infiltrated Emma's personal life, stalled her career and nearly destroyed everything she's worked for—all in the name of protection. Desperate and heartbroken, drawn into a secret criminal underworld in her quest for understanding, Emma discovers the truth: Avner's secrets are far more devastating than his lies.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!
Emma Neeson never expected a man like Avner Malfacini. When she meets the magnetic man, her vagina literally does a happy dance, but Avner isn't one of her boy toys. He will possess her, own her, devour her...and she'll like it. But for a woman who needs to know everything, she hates Avner's secrets and half truths. If he told her the real story behind his past, his present and the people who would stop at nothing to get to her, she'd go running...right? Emma hasn't been completely honest with Avner either, and she doesn't trust easily. Can these two very damaged people find a future together?
Nnngh! These Bad for You novels by Ms. Bardan are craaaaaay! I freakin' love every one of them, and I didn't think there was any way I'd go gaga over a story not focused on Angel and Haithem, but I was soooo wrong. Emma starts off as brash, confident, always the woman in charge unapologetically, but when she meets Avner, who is the same, the explosion was magnificent. The give and take between the two was absolutely terrific; he was the quintessential Alpha male going up against the headstrong Alpha female but having the patience for the long game. She was frustratingly independent and unwilling to trust, but then again, Avner didn't really give her a reason to do so.
The dialogue was fabulous, the sex, beyond erotic, the storyline, suspenseful and fast-paced. I loved every single thing about DON'T LIE TO ME!
Bottom Line: This is one tight erotic romantic suspense. Do yourself a favor and start from book 1 in this series!
