New Releases, What I'm Reading!

~Review: Defined By Deceit by A.E. VIA~


Book Blurb

Life isn’t always fair, and that’s something that Llewellyn Gardner knows about first hand. His life was on the fast track until one night of extreme passion changed everything. Now eight years later, he’s still living with the aftershocks of that night. Everywhere he turns or runs, there’s another reminder. What the hell do you do when you try to drown your demons only to find out they can swim?

Shane Smith, Jr. owner of Smith Construction, could see the emotional turmoil within his new employee — it’s why he hired him. There was something about the gorgeous, misunderstood man with the overly expressive eyes that came to their small town with a past no one was willing to overlook. Shane could see the good in Llewellyn, and those eyes of his were a clear window to his soul. Shane wasn’t going to let the man live a future of solitude because his past had been plagued with deceit.

Llewellyn wasn’t sure what to think about Shane. After years of protecting himself from being tricked twice, he was now faced with worry again. What would happen to him if Shane didn’t believe his truth, and walked away? Llewellyn wasn’t sure he’d be able to survive being left alone. Again.



First of all, let me start off by saying, “I will not tell you what happened in this book.”

I’m sorry, I just can’t. You have to read it for yourself and trust me… YOU WILL LOVE IT.

It’s an amazing story of love, loss and lies. There are some characters you will fall in love with instantly. There are others that will make you wish they were never born. (I know that seems a bit harsh, but once you read this book you will understand where I’m coming from.)

Not only was this book amazing, it was also real. It wasn’t a fairy tale. The main character didn’t have an easy life. But he stayed strong, thanks to the help of some amazing secondary characters.

The happily ever after at the end of this book was well deserved. You must read it to see Llew’s journey. It’s heartbreaking but uplifting in a sense.

I’m a big fan of A.E VIA and I can’t wait for her next book to come out! This one is definitely a FIVE STAR book!
