About the Book 
 Naomi is back!

What a woman will do in the name of love...or revenge!

After a bitter, destructive, and explosive parting with her former ex-lover, Kevin Styles, Naomi Saunders has no choice but to move on with her life. Kevin, equally happy and finally free of Naomi, is ready to move on as well. But before he does, he passes Naomi's taped confession to his confidant, Attorney Winston Lane, with instructions to hold it just in case she shows up to wrech havoc in his life again.

Naomi, torn with feelings of revenge and twisted love, decides to stay on the outskirts of Chicago...close to Kevin and the woman that came between them. In order for her to stay, she must take on a new persona and lifestyle that will enable her to sustain her lavish lifestyle she'd grown accustomed to living. Not wanting to go back to the struggling life she once endured before her short lived acting career, she makes a lifestyle changing move that hones her acting skills to perfection, proving she is the ultimate diva...or is she?

My Review:
WOW!  Another amazing book by author Shawna Hill!  This is the sequel to In Between Lies (which I loved!)  Luckily she provided this review copy to me as well, so I was able to read this one right away!  I love the cover too!  When you see that, you know there are going to be some scenes in this book that make your body heat up!   A man with a body like that undoing his pants....oh yeah!

So in this book, Naomi thought she would just play it safe for a while and stay out of Kevin's way.  She  wasn't sure if he thought she was dead or in jail.  Plus, he had a taped confession from her, so she thought it best just to get on with her life without him...for now anyway.  Kevin gave the confession tape to his lawyer Winston Lane, but Kevin isn't the only one that has ties to attorney Lane!  I could not believe what happened at the Masquerade Affair! Who is that woman all dressed in black and what is up her sleeve?  What about Savannah and Kevin.  Read this sequel to find out!

This series is sure to be a winner with the readers who like romantic books with sex, drama, and suspense!  Shawna Hill is definitely an author to follow!  Ms. Hill has created an unforgettable character in Naomi.  I could not stop reading this book once I started!  I never knew what was going to happen next!   I highly recommend this book!

Also I found out that there is a third book coming out in this series, so I will definitely be reading that one!

  My Rating: 5/5 diamonds
Couldn't Put It Down - Highly Recommend!

I will also be interviewing Shawna Hill, so check back for that!
