What you see isn't always what you get... Lexi has spent her life trying to right the wrongs of her past. But at a point when she feels she has finally managed to find solid footing and reconnect with the sister she lost, her father calls. That one call is all it takes to crumble the foundation she has built and force her back into the life she left behind so long ago. Ryan Randall has spent his life coasting on his charm and good looks. But he is finally ready to turn things around when Lexi’s troubles sideswipe him into a dangerous game of blackmail and deception. He must dig deep into his bag of tricks if he wants to avoid becoming the mouse to his adversary’s cat. Lexi knows that on her own, she’ll soon be in jail, or worse, dead, but she isn’t sure she can trust the charming mastermind she can’t seem to shake. As the game heats up, they must both learn to rely on one another if they want to save not only their own lives but those of the ones they love most. But they will have to stay ahead of a cop with a grudge, outsmart a cunning con artist, and steal from a ruthless thief if they want to beat the odds in Deception’s Gamble.
