After years of living in the darkness of his past, Andrew Wise, a young attorney working for his family’s law firm in Sarasota, Florida, has finally broken free of the demons that haunt him. Wealth, success, happiness, and true love; everything a man could ever dream of, was right at his fingertips. Or so he thought. But in the blink of an eye, all of that changed. Upon discovering that his ex-girlfriend, Olivia Hamilton, was pregnant, Drew fell back into some old habits, which led to him losing the one person that mattered the most in his life - McKenzie Evans.
When McKenzie left him and returned to Texas, Drew was beside himself. The night before she left, he made an agreement with her best friend Jared Christopher, that he would give her time and space to come to grips with the fact that he’d fathered her best friend’s child. Now, two months later, he feels as though he held up his end of the bargain, Drew can’t take their separation any longer. With his brother’s wedding mere weeks away, Drew devises a plan to win McKenzie back.
Under the guise of a bachelor getaway for Gavin, Drew, along with his brother and Jared, jets off on an adventure to the panhandle of Texas. There, he will learn what made McKenzie who she is and will find strength within himself that he never realized existed.
In this charming sequel to The Truth in Lies, Drew and McKenzie discover that not everything is as it seems, forgiveness is a matter of acceptance, and true love really can conquer all.
Oh my gosh, can these books get any better?
I fell hard for Drew in book one and am thrilled we get to hear from him.
The Certainty of Deception is told from Drew's POV. I adore Drew even more now, his point of view gives a whole new side to the stories, reading and feeling his heart break, suffering and the love he has for Mickie will rip your heart out. Drew's past will break your heart, his worry about Kenzie reaction to it had me biting my nails. You will want to cry, scream at some characters and slap them silly at points, but in the end you'll be so happy that things appear to be heading in a direction we've been hoping for.
As always, no spoilers from me but I will say the most despised characters, Olivia, is still reeking havoc in her own twisted way, refusing to provide information Drew wants and lying to Mickie about it.
I believe by the end of this book Mickie is at her breaking point with her "friend" Olivia. As we know from book one Mickie was a good friend while Olivia is a lying, conniving snake. I get the feeling she's going to have her world turned upside down very soon and I cannot wait for it!!
If you haven't read The Truth in Lies, grab it now and read prior to this one, you really need this story from the very beginning to fully understand each character and what their dealing with when The Certainty of Deception begins.
