Jonelle's Review of the Deception Series by Isabella Need

Beautiful Deception

The Deception Series #1

Jane Overholt is the no nonsense corporate intelligence specialist at a prestigious athletic management firm, but her ascent up the corporate ladder is cut short when handsome Logan Saeger arrives out of nowhere. Jane's resentment of the new supervisor quickly fades though, and before long she finds it difficult to avoid the impossibly gorgeous man who stole her promotion.

Corporate security consultant Logan Saeger is eager to complete his first major field assignment: find the mole who's been helping poach clients away from Sloan-Peterson Athletic Management and Development. Undercover as the new supervisor, Logan plans to get in, get the job done, and get out—but he didn't count on falling for Jane Overholt.

Dark Deception

The Deception Series #2

In the wake of another poached client, Logan Saeger and Jane Overholt are working overtime to corner the man they're certain is behind the sabotage at Sloan-Peterson. In their down time, they can't keep their hands off of each other, but when a threatening package arrives on Jane's doorstep one night, she pushes Logan away and takes matters into her own hands.

Logan is desperate to tell Jane the real truth about his employment at Sloan-Peterson, but he can't do so until he's sure she's not involved in the sabotage herself. When she rejects him out of nowhere, Logan is devastated. Still, his gut tells him that Jane is loyal to the company—until she mysteriously takes off with another man in the middle of the day, making Logan question everything he thought he knew.
Captivating Deception

The Deception Series #3

Logan and Jane are closing in on the Sloan-Peterson saboteurs, but all is not what it seems. As the friction between the pair builds to a head, shocking new developments turn the investigation upside down, leading Logan to seek help from an old friend.

With the threat of blackmail still hanging over her head, Jane Overholt is anxious and desperate to get back to normal—until she receives a tempting offer and must choose between her old life and something entirely new. Once she decides, the only question left will be whether or not the man who makes her toes curl and her heart pound will still be a part of her future.

I read the three books in the Deception series (Beautiful Deception, Dark Deception and Captivating Deception).  It's tells the tale of Jane, who is a corporate intellegence specialist at an athletic management firm.  She's up for a big promotion, but her dreams are dashed by the very handsom Logan.  

Some very big athletes are being stolen from the firm, right under their noses and it's Jane and Logan's job to figure out how and why.  And what Jane doesn't know is Logan's actually a mole to help determine if Jane's the cause of the poaching.  

Each of the books are quick, steamy reads full of action.  Great for school pick up line waits,  you'll keep yourself pretty entertained.  Though a little slow to start, the plot really picks up the pace toward the end.  4 stars!!

I was broken before I met Sebastian Pryor, but he decimated me. I swept the ashes of myself into a pile that I kept safe for thirteen years. Believe me it wasn’t pretty, oh but people thought we were perfect. I hate myself most days. I hate that I feel for him as much as I loathe who I’ve become with him. This story is hard to hear. You know what the worst part is? You’ll see part of you in me. You’ll hate that. You won’t tell anyone.
My story is about cracks. A description or telling of how cracks in a marriage, a life, a personality, a heart and a mind begin and continue for years without anyone knowing. You don’t always see what causes the fissure, but you feel it. Can you remember who you were before all of this started, before your life became a jumble of deceit, longing and regret?
This book isn’t for anyone who needs a happily ever after.
This book isn’t for anyone who needs a fun time out from their life.
This book isn’t for anyone, but me.
This is my story. I won’t apologize for it.

Blog Tour & Jonelle's Review: Belong by Jennifer Foor

Release Day: November 23
Ten years ago I fell in love with a married woman. I walked away so she could be happy, moving across the country to make sure I put space between us. We severed ties, and I promised myself I wouldn't look back. 
Since then I committed to someone else, and we have a child and a life many would wish for. Except, it's never been enough for me. There's always been something missing; something I never wanted to admit.
With my own marriage failing, I'm forced to go back to my hometown to bury the man who raised me. I never expected to see her there, and nothing could prepare me for what would happen the moment my arms wrapped around hers again.

Belong is the continuation of Chad's story from Bereft and it is one of the most emotional literary journeys you will go on.  Tackling some of the most serious issues you could face while married or in a relationship, you'll for sure need a box of tissues for this one.  Will Chad and Rachel get a second chance at love?  Will they be able to let go of the pain of past and move forward?

It's no secret I've been a long time fan of J4. She has you going from laughing to blubbering in this one and I loved every minute.   You can't help but feel emotionally invested in Chad and Rachel and their relationship. 
I give this one 4.5 stars

"You have every right to assume this can't be anything more than a temporary affair. I don't blame you for being cautious, but there is something I want you to know."
She turned around, finally looking right at me with those hesitant eyes. "What?"
"I still love you." I swallowed the lump in my throat as the words came out, silently praying she wouldn't force me to leave. It wasn't every day that I told someone other than my wife I loved them, but in this instance it was the truest statement I'd ever made. "I feel like I've loved you for a lifetime. It’s true. I have loved my wife, but it’s not the same. It’s always been you, Rach. You’re the only woman I know I’ll never be able to let go of. Staying away was my only option. I did it to protect both of our lives, but there’s nothing standing in the way anymore. Please don't deny us a second chance." I paused one more time. "I need you, just as much as I think you need me."
Her shoulders relaxed, and I watched her purse fall from her grip and hit the concrete ground. She shrugged while staring into my eyes. Her lips were trembling, allowing me to almost sense the connection between us. "I'm not strong enough to be with you again. I can't handle anymore heartache. Being close to you scares me, because I’m tired of the pain and suffering."
I took two steps forward, breaking the distance between us. "I'm not capable of hurting you again, Rach. If you give me this chance I promise I won't let you down. Let me be your friend again, and whatever comes with it will be determined by both of us."
