BOOK TOUR --- Deceitful Choices by CA Harms

Deceitful Choices by Author C.A. Harms 
Genres: New Adult Military Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Some lies you just can’t come back from.

The damage is too deep.

The effects are too strong, and the path they lead you on can be devastating.

One lie only led to another as Lindsay tried to be someone she wasn’t. She wanted just one moment to pretend she didn’t live the life she had been cursed with.

She wanted to live without regret.

Live for the moment.

She wanted to laugh and smile without feeling as if at any moment something or someone would corrupt that happiness. But all lies have a way of resurfacing. Those deceitful words can come back to haunt you, leaving you as the one heartbroken and alone.

Zack had taken a trip with a fellow Navy SEAL. Just a weekend away to regroup. Never had he intended to find the girl who would jumpstart his heart.

Only then to destroy it.

But the shattered pieces of his trust weren’t the only things he left behind when he walked away from Lindsay. There was now an innocent life that had been thrown in to the mix.

But Lindsay wasn’t the only one who lied...

The odds were stacked against them. There was someone doing everything they could to keep them apart.

But when the truth is told, and those secrets are revealed, they must decide if they have what it takes…
To survive the deceit.

We all have those moments that make us realize just how careless we’ve been. Those moments when we wish we could go back and change the way we acted, or the things we said. Reroute our path and make it better—better choices, better outcomes. 

If only we could take one small lie that escalated to heights beyond repair and be truthful. 

Lies—to some they were just words spoken, but to others, they were so much more. A turning point in a relationship or friendship that finalized its future. 

Some lies you just can’t come back from. The damage is too deep. 

The ones I told recently were destructive. They could have destroyed a good man had the right people found out. 

Even though I tried to fix it, tried to explain, it was hopeless. The damage was done and I found myself alone. 

Picking up the pieces of my own deceit and learning from those mistakes. 

One lie changed my life. It woke me to the reality that just a few words could forever change someone’s life. 

I spent my adolescent years believing I wasn’t enough. My parents were never supportive; on most days I felt as if they couldn’t wait until the day I moved out and moved on. I’d heard a few times how my father didn’t even want children, and that my mother had trapped him. 

He was a selfish man and in turn, my mother became selfish too. 

I’d have been better off if they’d given me up for adoption. I never understood why they didn’t. 

My father was heavy into gambling and my mother was oblivious, or she pretended to be. As long as she was able to have her weekly manicure and a bottle of vodka, she was set. Being drunk was her vice; she didn’t have to deal with reality if she was passed out. 

They were the ones who taught me one lie could get you out of almost anything, if you told it correctly. 

But they couldn’t have been more wrong.

My Review::

Lindsay and Zack's story will make you think right along with gasp with the intensity of the heat from the passion they put out. Lindsay comes from a bad home, where her parents don’t seem to care about her one way or another but in public put on a front. She has this one good friend who she is glad to have and she gets a chance to get away from it all and go hang out away from the house. She pretends she is 21 –enter Zack, this hot and sexy NAVY SEAL. They put forth this sexual chemistry together and she dare not tell him her true age or she would lose him; he would end up going to jail for statutory rape and he would hate her, is why she didn’t explain to him her true age. So to protect the man she was falling deeply in love with, she never told him her true age. They had this incredible night of passion and with her “Deceitful Choice” , so starts the unravelling of Lindsay’s life. Everything comes apart. Zach walks away from Lindsay and thinks she did it on purpose, then Lindsay is thrown out of her house by her parents for that one night of fun. She needed their help during this rough time after she finds herself with precious cargo and so she does the only thing she can think of—she calls her grandmother and asks for help. From here the story really picks up and there are twists and turns that will fill this story. You will want to put a beat down on a certain someone, you will want to shake Zack, and you will want to hug Lindsay. Yes, we all make mistakes and hers were a doozy but she wasn’t being malicious when she was doing it. All she did was meet her soul-mate and she never gave up after that special night on her love. Oh this is one of those novels that will make you think, and the passion and sexual tension will make you hum. Oh and the angst and anger and regret will have you at times shedding tears and shaking your kindle in shared anger but overall, this will have you celebrating their love. This is one great 2nd chance romance by C.A. Harms. Lindsay is one of those heroines that you root for because she recogines her mistakes and does what she needs to make herself better and owns up to her mistake while Zack is a strong alpha male who loves his mate hard. He is possessive and controlling but all in good ways. Yes, he was harsh at first but when he realized his mistakes, he too, owed up and made sure to be a better mate and lover. This is one of my favorites yet for 2016.

My rating: 4.8 stars ****
