Review: Love and Lies by May Gordon




Published Feb. 2019

Blurb: Weston Blake, a self-admitted workaholic and asshole, has spent the last ten years trying to keep Blake Estate running. The company is his dad’s legacy and means everything to him, but when Weston sees his new secretary, he realizes he’s found something worth even more.


Mabel Jones will do anything to help her sick father, but the money she borrowed from a loan shark has become her biggest regret. Blackmailed into corporate espionage, Mabel agrees to work as Mr. Blake’s secretary to pass information to his rival. But when they meet, she realizes her nightmare has just begun because lying to the man she loves will surely break her heart.


Can love prevail when it’s built on a foundation of lies or will the truth tear them apart?


Warning: Sweet, sexy and safe reads! Happily ever after guaranteed!This author writes what she likes to read. That means there will be instalove, OTT Heroes, and, brace yourselves, virgin characters at times. If none of those float your boat, you might want to find another book. If they do, you’re in the right place.


May be spoilers:

Love and Lies is the 2nd in the Bosses in Love series and has 18 chapters and 2 epilogues and is about Mabel and Weston.

We meet Mabel who is doing everything she can to help her father. She took out a loan with a loan shark and now he is blackmailing her to work for Weston so that he can take him down from the inside. Poor girl, she doesn’t want to, but she isn’t given a choice as she’ll be taken from her dad when he needs her the most.

They meet when she’s hired to be his assistant and they both fall instantly. She feels so guilty for what she has to do.

Wes is doing everything he can to make her his. They have both been celibate for years.

Great story, which just a touch of drama. I loved it. They were just perfect together.

No cheating, no ow/om drama, no separations, only slight pushing away in the beginning, but didn’t last long.

Epilogue is 5 years out, then another 6 years. They are happily married with 2 kids. I just love this author. On to the next one.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.  Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
