An Ali Release Day Review: Lies & Deception by Nic Starr

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Detective Mitch O’Neill is the ideal man to infiltrate the Soldiers of Fury Motorcycle Club. His ex-boyfriend, Peter, is pledged with the club, which provides Mitch with the perfect cover. Despite the relationship ending badly, he’s come to terms with Peter’s drug addiction and his inability to help. All Mitch wants now is to bring down the Soldiers and the club president, Rocky Cummings, once and for all.

Finn Cummings hates everything the motorcycle club stands for, but he’s unable to escape his brother’s clutches. When Mitch is assigned as Finn’s driver, they spend countless hours together, and the saying proves true—opposites do attract. Finn agonizes over his feelings for Mitch—the last thing he wants is to involve himself further with criminals, not when he wants to leave that world. Mitch tries to come to terms with falling for a member of the outlaw club he’s determined to destroy.

If they can survive the fallout from Rocky’s violence and the investigation, they might discover it’s not a case of opposites attract after all.

I’m not sure why I tried this because I have a bad record with motorcycle club books.  But, hope springs eternal and both the cover and the blurb caught my eye.  I’m so glad I tried this because it was really, really good.
The blurb does a good job explaining the overall plot.  I was immediately caught up in the story and I also immediately liked both of the main characters.  I wasn’t sure I would find Finn’s problems legitimate but I did and I really felt sorry for the bind he was in.
When Mitch and Finn finally get together their chemistry is off the charts.  I loved the two of them together and was rooting for them the entire time.
The overall plot in regards to Mitch infiltrating the MC club was fast paced and entertaining.  There is a bunch of action and it feels realistic without being too gritty.
The side characters really added to the story.  I was hoping the bad guy would get his (you’ll have to read to see if he does) and I was hoping for something good to happen for Peter (maybe he’ll get a book of his own someday?).
This was my first time reading this author but I will definitely be checking out her other works.  This was one of the more entertaining stories I’ve read so far this year and I highly recommend this.
Cover:  This cover was done by Tiferet Design and I like it a lot.  It’s an eye catching cover and the models on the front fit the MC’s descriptions really well.
