Forgiving Lies

Molly McAdams. Morrow, $14.99 trade paper (368p) ISBN 978-0-06-226774-0
This novel from “new adult” author McAdams (Taking Chances), which mixes together a suspenseful thriller and lighthearted romance, should please fans of both genres, but may not leave either completely satisfied. Rachel Masters is wary of intimate relationships after the death of her parents and her narrow escape from an attempted rape by her best friend’s cousin—and she’s especially reluctant to get involved with tattooed motorcycle riders like Logan “Kash” Ryan. An affair between Kash and Rachel’s respective roommates locks Rachel out of her apartment one night, however, and results in her going on an impromptu date with Kash. Despite still being traumatized by her past, Rachel can’t stop thinking about Kash’s sexy lip ring. When Kash, who’s also an undercover cop, discovers Rachel is being stalked, he whisks her away for a weekend in a honeymoon suite. Though the story follows rhythms familiar from romance novels, readers may be disappointed that McAdams opts to finish with a cliffhanger foreshadowing the next book, rather than giving Kash and Rachel a conclusive happy ending.
