Dark Deception was a very quick, hot read from author Zoe Blake. The first book I have read by her but won’t be my last.
Mirage is a thief and she is set on revenge by setting up and then killing Paine… the thief responsible for killing the man she loves. Man.. the saying hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? So true in the case of Mirage. I would NOT want to have been on her bad side. I really liked her character. She was honest with who she is and what she wanted. Plus she was awesome.
Paine… oh man for some reason I LOVED him… he wanted Mirage and man knowing that she was the one that set him up and then tried to kill him not once but twice? He was in love. I really liked how he knew what he wanted and he made no excuses for it.
This was seriously like reading the screenplay of the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith and honestly it was great cause you get the dirtier scenes in the book (if you know what I mean). Excellent read and I look forward to checking out more for Ms. Blake.
