Mia Ryan was on the path to make all her dreams come true. Her life was everything she wanted it to be; until one fateful night changed everything – leaving her broken and without direction. Nearly a year later, she still has little faith in anyone or anything. Desperate to reclaim her life’s ambition, she takes an unexpected offer that promises to solve all her problems. But as Mia moves forward, she’s faced with obstacles she couldn’t have foreseen. The biggest of them lies within the mystery of Ethan Fitzgerald; a man who affects her like no other, but who she should avoid pursuing, at all costs.

On a mission himself, Ethan Fitzgerald didn’t care who he pissed off on his road to fulfill his mother’s dying wish. He relied on himself, and was closed off to the world around him – until Mia Ryan walked through his door. Normally one to avoid messy emotions, Ethan’s world is turned upside down by Mia, and he can’t seem to get enough of her.

There are lines you can cross that will change the course of your life forever …

Conflicted by M.M. Koenig  (Secrets and Lies #1)

Conflicted (Secrets and Lies #1)Her life was almost perfect. The outspoken Mia had love, college, great friends and a bright future to look forward to. In one evil swipe, her world fell apart, she was falsely accused of an extreme breach of faith at college, and it looked like the man responsible was the man who owned her heart, and then, like the coward he was, he ran away. For Mia escaping her past was now next to impossible until she strikes a deal that should give her back her future. All she had to do was become a corporate spy, but like anything that seems too good to be true, Mia may discover that she has been duped into something more serious and dangerous than uncovering corporate deceit.

Ethan is a man with power, influence and money. He is also Mia’s target, the best way to get the information she needs. How could she know he would also be some much more? Avoiding his charm, his beautiful body and his many facets is impossible and together they are falling deep, hard and fast into the web of love. But will the web of lies Mia has woven tear them apart? Should she reveal her dark secret and hope for the best? Mia is caught between a rock and a hard place and when her past comes back to haunt her, she feels as if she is falling into the third ring of Hell.

by M.M. Koenig is a lusty, high-tension look at one young woman’s world as it continues to implode around her, either through bad luck, bad timing or bad decisions made in desperation. Mia is one messed up girl, outspoken and tough on the outside, but holding so much pain within. Ethan is the kind of man dreams are made of, handsome, charming, powerful, yet gentle and caring, as well as a man-boy when it comes to enjoying life. With a wonderful cast of characters to surround them, and so much deep inner dialogue, as well as witty banter with others, there is never too much down time in this sensually searing read. There’s heat in the bedroom to the car to the boardroom as their tale unfolds. Get ready to reach for the smelling salts on occasion and take a breather in the slower sections, you’ll need it!
