Review of Deception, the first in The Fixer Series by Alyson Raynes


Title: Deception Book 1 in the Fixer Series Author: Alyson Raynes Genre: Suspenseful Romance/Erotica Synopsis Brooke has spent the past eleven years living with a man she thought would be her forever. One afternoon of unanswered phone calls reveals he isn’t the man she thought he was. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, she’s forced to call upon a stranger for help. Can Dylan save Brooke from her broken past or does he have secrets of his own that will destroy them before they even get started?
Deception was one of those short and sweet books that catches your attention and before you know it you're hooked- literally; hook, line and sinker!  I loved Dylan- he was sizzling hot, personality and looks to dream about.  He was THE perfect boyfriend.  Dylan played the part of Prince Charming, you might say, rescuing Brooke, his damsel in distress- in just the right place, at just the right time.

The one thing that kind of caused me to pause once or twice as I read this book, though short and sweet as it was, this couple sure did move fast!  I get it- we may find that one true love in our lifetime that is THE ONE TRUE LOVE- but this was kind of,  Now, don't get me wrong- fast isn't always bad, and in this case, it worked.  I was able to immediately read Alyson's next book in this series, Promiscuous, and the pace of this love story continues on with a very good story line with lots of twists!

Alyson did a nice job with this book.  I liked her characters, the plot, descriptions, character relationships, all well done.  There were a couple characters I thought got lost a bit throughout the story (Brooke's best friend kind of...well, I'll say it, she takes a back seat to Dylan once Brooke takes the leap and jumps in feet first into the big sexy pool of love).  There were a few typos- not enough that it distracted me from the story, but enough that if they were fixed up it would make this book that much more fabulous!  

I'll be posting my review of Promiscuous on March 20th for Beauties and The Book's stop on Alyson's blog tour for The Fixer Series.  I've given this first book in her series a solid 4 stars.  I'd strongly recommend this book to my friends and Beauties followers- so go one click this yummy book and prepare to be hooked!
