These lovers are living their happy ever after ... but is it really forever?
Emma and Caleb's journey continues in TELL ME A LIE, the sensual new serial novel by Tamara Lush. It's the third in the series.
Caleb and Emma are married, expecting, and madly in love. But one separation may rip it all apart. Will he be coming home again ... or is everything she believes a lie?
Emma has her dream wedding to Caleb, in the exotic beauty of a Florida resort and museum. Married to her soulmate, carrying his child, now her only obstacle is persuading him to stop treating her like a fragile vessel. Her pregnancy has elevated her desire for him to a craving, and she lives for their time alone.
Caleb can't believe his good fortune. Emma is his forever, and she's going to give him a child. When her doctor informs them the pregnancy is high-risk, he's even more determined to surround his woman with everything she needs or wants. Finally convincing her to take time off from her bookstore, he can relax a little.
But as head of the family business empire, Caleb must travel to Brazil to supervise the opening of a new building. Torn between duty and love, he allows Emma to convince him to go. And all goes well ... until the day he walks out of his hotel and disappears without a trace. What has happened to Caleb?
I'm becoming a huge Tamara Lush fan, the series has me completely hooked with Caleb and Emma's story that I cannot wait to read what happens next with the newly couple. Although you do have to read the previous two books before jumping on to this book, they are fairly short and quick to read.
Emma and Caleb's journey continues in Tell Me a Lie, now that the two have established their relationship everything seems to be going well for the couple. Emma is slowly becoming successful with her bookstore while keeping busy with other events. But now she has to worry about the baby that she is expecting and it's putting stress on the couple. Caleb is the loving husband that she always wanted, yet he is starting to treat her with a lot more care now that she is pregnant, and she doesn't like being treated like fragile doll. Emma wants to have everything in her marriage, and having a physical connection with her husband is what she wants to keep intact. Yet Caleb wants to treat Emma with care that he might just be missing the point of how they started their relationship.
When they find out that Emma's pregnancy is at high-risk, Caleb does everything he can to protect her by not stressing her out. Needless to say, when he gets called to go to Brazil for a project that he's been working on he decides to leave Emma at home promising to come back soon. Little did she know that it was going to be the last time she would hear from him again. Now he Emma is more determined than ever to find out what happened to husband and if he is every coming back to her.
Right from the very beginning I was completely hooked with the book, it was suspenseful and filled with steamy scenes. Lush did a good job following the previous books, the characters have evolved throughout the series that has made them enjoyable to read. Now the characters are married and expecting a baby, there are new obstacles that they have to face together that could potentially risk their relationship. Emma is happy to have a husband and a baby, it's all new to her that she has trouble balancing her job with her new life. On the other hand, Caleb is caring as ever while building his business empire. He is successful at his job, but his life at home has put a stress on the couple. Caleb wants to protect Emma, but she is too stubborn and he needs to find a way to get her to relax for her sake and the one of her baby. Though I thought the whole series was just going to consist of three books for some reason, the end left me in shocked as we get yet another cliffhanger. There are two more books in the series, and although I wish everything could be in just one book, it keeps me wanting for one and I can't wait to read the rest. If you are looking for a steamy romance story filled with twists and turns I would highly recommend checking out this series. Be aware that it does contain cliffhangers and it will consist of five books in total. :)
