Review: Sins, Lies & Spies (Black Brothers #2) by Lisa Cardiff

*****5 Stars*****
You know that feeling you used to get when you were a child and you were going really high on a swing? The way your stomach slowly flip-flops over and over? That slightly queasy feeling that you somehow still enjoyed? This book gave me that feeling.
There is so much deceit and so many lies that just when you get your hopes up, your stomach takes another dive.
By no means was this a "teary" book but I did have a lump in my throat.
This is book #2 in the Black Brothers series. I really loved book #1 and Archer Black was certainly yummy but even then, I was drawn to Knox and desperately wanted his story.
Knox is brooding and carefree all at once. He works hard and he plays just as hard, as long as there's no strings, no commitment and no whiney, needy women. Knox is happy with the life he's carved out for himself.
Along comes Trinity. She's been burned more than once and doesn't trust easily.
Thrust together when their paths cross, neither one trusts the other but they soon find that they need each other in order to accomplish their goals.
Can they get over their mistrust of each other or are they destined to second guess each move the other makes?
I read this book easily in a day. It's a great read that flows seamlessly and although not super intense, it has enough to keep you from putting it down. I look forward to book #3.
