    5 Star Deception

    She searched for two long years, but now Kate Gallagher has been called to the morgue to identify her sister’s body. Guilt and grief send Kate into a tailspin but she won’t fail her sister again, even if finding her sister’s killer means following a lethal bounty hunter into the heart of darkness, placing both their lives in danger. Jason Maddox has been down some dangerous paths before, but never for a client he’s so drawn to, or for a case so monstrous. The deeper into the city’s underbelly they go, the deadlier the operation becomes, placing a target on the backs and they will have to decide what’s matters most…the truth or their lives. This ‘Maximum Security’ suspense story is an intense, emotionally gripping and riveting tale. The characters stand out and speak to readers as they dive deeper and deeper into a world of horror while dealing their vivid sizzling chemistry and magnetic attraction. The romance between them is full of danger and emotional angst due to situation, but it is obvious to readers that these two are belong together and readers can’t help but become caught up in their story as they empathize with what they are going through. The story is set at a steady pace with the suspense building continuously and some fast paced and adrenaline pumping excitement happening as Jason and Kate’s mission draws them closer and closer to the answers they seek and the target on their back becomes exponentially more deadly. Lots of unexpected twists keeps readers on the edge and the heroine of the story is strong with some surprising attitudes that makes her a perfect fit for a lethal bounty hunter. Once again, the author has given her fans a juicy, gut clenching and riveting suspense that they can take their eyes off of.

    Romantic Suspense

    The Deception by Kat Martin Maximum Security #2 In the introductory scene Kate Gallagher is asked to identify a body in the morgue, her younger sister’s body, and it guts her. They were not close due to the gap in age between them but to lose her was tough and to find out she had been murdered and suffered sent her out to forget. Into the arms of rugged Jason “Hawk” Maddox she falls hoping to forget and get out of her head for a bit...boy was there chemistry between them! Kate decides the police will probably never find her sister’s murderer so hires someone to help her find the man...and who should she end up hiring but...Hawk. The chemistry is still there but they decide they can ignore it in pursuit of the bad guy(s). And pursue they did. With many leads that took them to a few other cities they uncovered more than one criminal that needed to be brought down. They are well suited to working together and that is just what they do. There are some ups and downs and scary situations in this romantic suspense that eventually does end with HEA for the two of them. What I liked: * Kate: What a strong individual she was...and so open in her caring, sharing and sense of purpose * Hawk: Strong protective and caring he wanted to do what was right for Kate but sometimes got it wrong and I wanted to set him straight * The team at Maximum Security: Can’t wait to read Brandon’s story next...and hope that perhaps Wolfe or Jaxon will have have stories, too. * That the bad guys did get their comeuppance What I didn’t like: * The bad guys...there were more than one or two and all deserved to be wiped off the face of the earth! * The idea that trafficking of human beings happens in real life and though this book is fiction it reminded me of the callousness of human beings Did I like this book? Yes Would I read more in the series? Yes This is definitely romantic suspense with a bit of steam but it is also, in some ways, fantasy. Why do I say that? I don’t think that Kate would really have been able to do all that she did in this book without more training and backstory but this is fiction so anything can happen, right? Thank you to NetGalley and HQN for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    Outstanding Romantic Thriller

    The Deception by Kat Martin is the second book in the Maximum Security series. The Deception is an outstanding story and Kat Martin is an amazing storyteller. The Deception is the story of Kathryn "Kate" Gallagher and Jason "Hawk" Maddox, bounty story. The story begins with Kate identifying the body of her runaway younger sister Christina "Chrissy" at the Dallas morgue. Kate is guilt ridden and goes to the Sagebrush Saloon to forget about it. She encounters Jason at the bar and on the dance floor. They get into the back seat of Jase's Yukon, but "Just Kate" puts and end to things before they get to far. Kate wants to learn what happened to Chrissy and after doing internet research, decides to hire Chase Garrett at Maximum Security. When she arrives at Maximum Security, Kate encounters Jase and he offers to help her find out what happened to Chrissy. They soon learn that Chrissy was murdered and had a red lipstick tattoo behind her ear, marking her as the property of Los Besos. Chrissy was a teenage prostitute going my Tina Gallen and was trying to clean up her life at New Hope Rehabilitation Center. Working together is both dangerous to Kate and Jase's hearts and lives. There are multiple surprise plot twists that only Kat Martin can deliver, and I loved everyone of them. The book is filled with action, danger, and of course romance. I loved every page of The Deception and how it all came full circle at the end. Cannot wait for Brandon Garrett's story in book three.

    Lazy writing

    The concept could have been interesting but it reads like chess pieces pushed around the board. The basics of the plot seem very unrealistic.
