Product Description

Slater

Everything I believed was a lie. Everything except for her, the one person I blamed for it all.

MacKayla Simone was beautiful. She was sexy as hell. She was also the setup.

One night.

Sex that rocked my world.

Rocked it to its very foundations because the next thing I knew, she and I made the headlines of every paper, every news channel across the country, and it cost me everything.

But that wasn't the worst of it. That came when I learned who was behind the setup. That was when I understood what it meant to be destroyed absolutely.

I don't know why I went after MacKayla. She'd been a pawn just like me. But it was all I could do, all I had left. Hell, it was the one thing keeping me from tumbling into the abyss and never coming back into the light.

Find her. Find the girl who'd screwed me. Find her and make her pay.

MacKayla

I didn't know who Slater Vaughn was, but if I had, it wouldn't have mattered. Not when my sister was in trouble. I would have done what I did anyway. You can judge me. You can call me a whore. But I would have done it anyway.

One night, they'd said. Make him want you, let him have you. Easiest money in the world for just one night of my life.

Only it wasn't one night because that night obliterated Slater Vaughn, and he came after me. He told me I owed him, and truthfully, I did. Hell, maybe those years in hiding, I'd been waiting for him to find me. To punish me. To make me pay.

Maybe I sought his forgiveness all along.

But now that he had me, how far would he take this game? Slater Vaughn was a broken man. He had nothing left to lose. What was to keep him from taking me with him into his darkness?

Beautiful Liar is a standalone novel. No Cliffhanger.  Recommended for readers 18+ who like a dirty talking and very dominant Alpha male.

Beautiful liar is another dark romance by Natasha Knight! Mac is offered money to set Slater up, not knowing who he is or the consequences of her decision. Slater loses everything, his wife, his daughter and his political position. Three years later he finally finds Mac and seeks out his vengeance. Great twists and turns and storytelling! Mac and Slater get their HEA, but you need to read it for the more intricate details as I don't want to ruin it:)

"Your guilt lines your face. I wonder if you don’t need the release of punishment as much as I desire extracting the payment."

O.M.F.GEEEEE!!!! Wow!! WOW!! WOWWW!!!! This book was incredibly addictive and mind blowing!!!! The story grabbed me from the blurb and didn't let go. I was consumed by the story and devoured it in a matter of hours. Real life was put on pause, as I was thrown into this sordid story of betrayal, vengeance, and revenge. A story of family, love, courage and loyalty. Ms Knight's writing style is truly mesmerising, beautiful and seamless.

Slater Vaughn, is a man on a mission - to seek and punish the woman, MacKayla Simone, who had seduced him three years ago. Their tryst had cost him his career, reputation and family. Slater is the definition of ALPHA - sexy, controlling, possessive, dominant, dark, tattooed, and dangerous! Like MacKayla, I was terrified of his presence at the beginning. I wasn't sure if I should hate him, but there was something magnetic about his presence. I was drawn to him like a moth to a flame, and I wanted MORE of him. This beautiful, angry man had been to hell and back, manipulated and betrayed by his wife and best friend. He seeks his revenge by going after the only person that is also haunted by that night.

“You owe me, and tomorrow, you start paying off your debt to me.”

MacKayla is a sexy, beautiful, hard working and caring heroine. I fell in love with her and my heart ached for her self torment and guilt with her past. She internalised the blame for not protecting her sister Janey from their vile stepfather. And she also felt responsible for the downfall of Slater, even though she was merely an innocent pawn in the evil scheme.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Indeed 8 May 2016
By MaryC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
OMG! I loved this book. It was perfect. I’ve read several books by this author because she is one of my go to authors. She is one of my authors that I always one-click her new releases without reading the blurb because she never disappoints. This book was no exception. Beautiful Liar by Natasha Knight is a hauntingly beautiful story of two broken people with a connection but even with their first meeting, obstacles the size of the great wall of China stand between them, making it impossible to recognize the sizzling connection. Not to worry, because they will both feel it, eventually, even if they deny it multiple times. Slater only wants revenge, or so he thinks, and MacKayla, thinking she deserves his wrath, is terrified of him. Will these two ever be able to see what is right under their noses??? Hmmm, that’s not something that you’ll hear from me so I highly recommend that you one-click now!

This book is different than her others which just leaves you wondering if there is anything she’s unable to do. Its lighter than her last one but it’s not all heart and flowers. It is a standalone with a HEA but believe me when I saw that the road is twisty, tenuous, beautifully painful and full of angst and grittiness. There are twists that you will not see coming. The writing puts you in the story so you will feel everything and that puts your emotions on a roller coaster ride that will both devastate and thrill you. The book is captivating. It’s just not possible to put it down until the very last word. I read it in one sitting and didn’t even think about real life while I was involved with these characters. You will not find any filler so forget skimming. This 100% titillating story. The characters are very well developed and feel real and this includes the secondary characters. In fact, I’m hoping for more from the secondary characters. The plot is well developed and flows effortlessly, despite the twists. Everything about the writing is flawless. It is written in dual POV and yeah, its flawless too.

Remember that everything is not as it seems. On the surface this appears to be another book about revenge but it is so much more than that. It is much deeper than that. Somewhere lurking there is a love story, something much deeper and complicated than a perceived need for revenge but that “something deeper” has to be acknowledged before it can happen. Can someone that is full of anger from losing everything be able to see beyond his perceived need for revenge? Great question and only one of the many examples of the complications and obstacles that Slater and MacKayla encounter and YOU will not find the answer HERE so you need to one-click. I really recommend this book and this author.

I received and ARC through my blog but I didn’t touch it because the author is one of my go to authors and it was live so I bought it. As always, I did not regret the purchase.

Happy Reading!

I really enjoyed this story. It was my first by Natsha Knight. I one-clicked when I saw this recommended by Tara Crescent.

The story starts off really strong and never lets up. Make sure your day is clear when you buy this because you will NOT be able to put it down.

I will say there are a few minor editorial problems. This doesn't turn me off as a reader, but one thing that bothered me was the discrepancy in our main character's age. First we read that she's 24 and three years ago she made some poor choices. Later we see that she made those choices when she was 18, which would make her 21 now. Maybe it was just a typo, but I wanted to point that out :). Easy fix.

Beautiful Liar is a story of love, passion, and revenge. It's a story of betrayal. It's a story of mysteries. You're probably going to cry, laugh, and get super horny if you read this book. Natasha has a really strong writing style and as I read this book, I felt every emotion the characters did. I would definitely read more books by this author and it's well worth the price tag on the story. I especially loved the scenes at the club and thought they were just fantastic.

Overall Opinion: This is a hard one to rate. When I was reading it, and I was engaged and I didn't skim or get all that distracted -- so that's good. But when I slept on it and was thinking on the book this morning to write my review, there were some things that really bothered me to make me question why I even finished it! It seemed like there were 2 different stories going on. The first was a dark vengeful book where the H is trying to get some control back into his life by controlling the h. Then the second was after a time jump to them being in a loving relationship (still with kinky sex) and they were both so focused on helping their families and loving each other. I just didn't get how they worked together! I also had some BIG issues with how the H treated the h in the beginning. It also felt like the epilogues were just thrown in because it didn't feel like a good progression until the end. Overall, it was just too inconsistent for me to like.

**See goodreads.com//NMmomof4 for my full review with spoilers**

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is MacKayla and Slater's story. MacKayla is hired to seduce Slater for money to help save her sister. He was a politician, husband, father, and head of a Christian charity that all had issues with his public infidelity, so he lost it all. 3 years later, Slater has tracked down MacKayla. She is working in a bookstore by day, and stripping at night. He works out a deal with her to pay him back, and she has to give him her nights to do whatever he pleases to her. Eventually the sex turns into more, and they fall in love. There is some kinky sex, some family and ex drama...but they get a HFN ending.

POV: This alternated between MacKayla and Slater's POV.

Overall Pace of Story: Ok. There were time jumps and the abrupt ending that messed with the pacing for me.

Instalove: No. Even though it felt like all of a sudden they were in love and that confused me, I wouldn't call it instalove.

H rating: 2 stars. Slater. I'm not sure how to even rate this guy. I feel like he had 2 different personalities! One was a crazy revenge driven dominant. The other was a sweet guy that loved the h, made doll house furniture, and wanted his daughter so desperately. I couldn't keep up!

h rating: 2.5 stars. MacKayla. I appreciated how she took care of her sister, and how she had a conscious about what she did in the past. She does do the martyr act at times that was annoying to me.

Sadness level: Low. No tissues needed.

Heat level: Moderate/high. There were a lot of scenes, and I felt like they bordered on the line of taking the focus away from the story and making it more erotica than romance.

Descriptive sex: Yes

Safe sex: Yes. They use condoms at first, and then after a birth control and std status talk they go without. No mention of previous practices that I remember.

OW/OM drama: Mild

Sex scene with OW or OM: No

Cheating: Not between the h and H

Separation:Yes

Closure: This had a really abrupt ending with what I would call a HFN ending. I needed way more closure, because there were too many unanswered questions.

How I got it: I paid the $3.99 on Amazon.
4.0 out of 5 stars SLATER VAUGHN IS THE MASTER OF MY UNIVERSE!!! 24 May 2016
By Kim R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
“I own your nights, MacKayla. In the small hours, I am your master.”

Full Disclosure: I have never actually been jealous of a heroine before…until this book! There are certain heroes you covet to the point where the lines between reality and fiction become blurred, and you wish you could crawl inside the novel and swap places with the heroine. So move aside, MacKayla, because Slater Vaughn owned MY nights….! At six feet six and 250 pounds of muscle covered in tats, he is literally sex on a stick!! He is so PRIMAL and brazenly sexy, so unapologetically dominant and roughly possessive, pulsating with so much potent masculinity and “bristling, fiery rage,” that he literally leaps off the page and leaves me all aquiver.

Nothing thrills me more than a dark, brooding hero with an ax to grind and Slater Vaughn is so pissed his blood in boiling! But he’s about to collect his debt...big time.

Three years prior, MacKayla Simone was paid $5,000 to seduce newly elected Senator Vaughn—and catch it all on camera. She executed the plan flawlessly, preying on him in a moment of weakness, beckoning him with her intoxicating beauty and come hither smiles. But succumbing to one night of mind blowing passion with the cunning temptress ended up costing him everything. His career. His wife. His daughter. His name. And, most of all, his self-respect. But now the tables have turned and MacKayla Simone’s day of reckoning has come.

After years of planning, he finally tracks her down at the Hello Kitty Kat strip club. “Everything about her, her body, her face, her eyes—even from this distance—everything screamed erotic, right down to her pink tongue licking her full crimson lips.”

But he has not come here to drool. Or to get a private lap dance in the back room. He’s just relishing the moment before her whole world comes crashing down around her. For he’s temporarily moved in next door to her in North Bend, Oregon for one reason and one reason only. To punish her. However, when he finally advances on her, causing her to recoil in fear and shame and guilt, he is taken aback by his visceral reaction to her. For the vulnerable, teary-eyed woman who kneels before him, ready to submit to his cruel demands and pay the ultimate penance, is nothing like he pictured.

“I’d made her out to be a witch in my head. But looking at her here, all small and scared, I couldn’t reconcile that image with the reality. There was more here than met the eye.”

As much as he wanted to hate her, he couldn’t. She strikes a raw nerve in him, arouses his protective instincts, in ways he never anticipated. He tries to stay detached, to not care, to not FEEL anything for her, but the haunting sadness in her strangely beautiful eyes gets under his skin. Makes him momentarily waver in his plan that has been three years in the making. “In this game, this play of power, only he had control. Absolute control." Or so he thought!!

Turns out, MacKayla is tormented by her own tragic past, has pretty much only known hardship and sacrifice in her young life, and demanding restitution by making her his love slave fills him with self-loathing not vindication. He is drawn to her, wants to own her nights, mark her as his, take her to the heights of pleasure and pain, but the mere thought of truly hurting her, humiliating her, breaking her beautiful spirit twists him inside out.

"I didn’t understand this woman. I didn’t understand my reaction to her. I should only want to cause her pain, but I couldn’t. I’d thought it would be easy. I’d thought seeing her would bring all of my anger to the surface, making it easy to take what she owed, but it didn’t. The opposite, in fact."

Could it possibly be that the woman who he thought he loathed with very fiber of his being was a much a pawn as he was? MacKayla was the girl everyone loved to hate: trailer park trash who brought down a good man. But desperate times called for desperate measures and she did what she had to do save her family. She’s tired of always looking over her shoulder, of facing the accusing stares, and knows he has a right to his revenge. She owes him and deserves his cruelty, his hate.

“I wonder if you don’t need the release of punishment as much as I desire extracting the payment. I think the best way to look at this, Mac, is to understand that you live at my pleasure. Not only that, but you live FOR my pleasure.”

But he becomes much more than her Dom. He becomes her everything. Her master. Her lover. Her punisher. Her protector. But will bending to Slater's will bring him the vindication he thinks he so richly deserves or is there another way—a BETTER way--for them to both find absolution and peace?

BEAUTIFUL LIAR is beyond riveting! This tale is dark and gritty. Sweet and sordid. Passionate and provocative. Beautiful and gut-wrenching. And at the heart of this story is an underlying message of how love can trump hate, of how hope and forgiveness can permeate the suffocating darkness. This taut, emotionally tumultuous tale is chock full of twists and turns and it starts off with a bang! In fact, there was so much trepidation and mounting tension leading up to the pivotal moment when Slater closes in on an unsuspecting MacKayla, like a panther circling its prey, that when he finally pounced my heart nearly jumped out of my chest! The chemistry between this couple is so exhilarating, I felt it deep down in my marrow. MacKayla is drawn to his darkness and he to her light. They are both tethered together in shared pain and have a soul-searing connection that defies reason and logic. And although they were brought together under heinous circumstances, they just might be one another’s true salvation.

The characterizations in this book are multi-faceted and intricately drawn. Ms. Knight is a pro at interlacing eroticism with raw, aching emotion and my heart throbbed for Slayter and MacKayla to find a way to heal their long-festering wounds. Going into his book, I was shivering with excitement because Natasha Knight pens some of the most macho, uber-sexy, Alpha men I have EVER read. And Slater Vaughn is my favorite by far! But there is so much more to his appeal than the fact that he’s a hot, dirty-talking Dom! His hardboiled, angry exterior is really a mask to hide how emotionally shattered and profoundly broken he is inside. He is hurting terribly, and readers relate to him because Ms. Knight crafts him with so much depth and humanity. And sweet, brave-hearted MacKayla, with a backbone of steel, is the perfect balm to his tainted soul.

Another thing I truly appreciated about this story is the broad range and scope of this story. Sure the sexual power exchanges are BLISTERING HOT, but this is not a mere master/slave story that is basically contained to the candle-lit boudoir. There was a real, full-bodied, heart rendering story to be told here. The plot is complex and beautifully textured. And I particularly loved how the author interspersed steamy BDSM scenes with heartwarming familial exchanges throughout. Delving so intricately into their personal lives and backstories helped us gain a deeper understanding of their psyches and provide context to the catastrophic chain of events that forever altered their lives. I found it especially poignant seeing Slater pine for his little girl, Mel. Nothing makes readers’ hearts swell more than seeing a big, bad Alpha soften into a cuddly teddy bear around their little ones! Ahh…the paradox…

That said, I do have one qualm with this book that unfortunately relegated this fantastic novel from a five star read to a four star one. It is in regard to the resolution of the romantic conflict, which I feel happened prematurely. There was such intense, high octane tension simmering between MacKayla and Slater throughout but instead of drawing it out till the end to keep the momentum going, it was quickly resolved at 66% so the author could shift gears to tying up loose ends with the various subplots. And, as a result, I feel plotting in the last third of the book was uneven and we never got proper closure on the retribution storyline. Granted, there WAS a jaw dropping black moment that transpired beforehand (which I don’t want to spoil) but I felt as if it didn’t carry enough emotional weight and I kept waiting for it to lead to that big epiphany for the hero where he finally abandons his vengeful plans and allows love to illuminate the darkness. But it never came.

However, to the exquisitely talented Ms. Knight’s credit, everything came beautifully full circle in the end and we were treated to scorchingly sexy, sigh worthy HEA. So that one critique aside, Beautiful Liar is a MUST-READ or fans who have an affinity for lusty revenge to lovers tales that will leave you breathlessly turning the pages!
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Liar is a great story 15 May 2016

Slater had it all. A beautiful wife, lovely daughter, bright political career and a family business he was proud to run. Then he was setup. He lost everything and the worst part was discovering who the two people were who set him up. He knows MacKayla isn't the person to blame. Slater knows she was as much a pawn and he was, but he still has to find her and make her pay.

MacKayla has regretted what she did three years ago to Slater Vaughn everyday since. However under the circumstances, she had no other choice. She needed the money and didn't know who he was. Now that Slater has found her, Mac believes she deserves to pay for want she did. But how far is Slater going to push her, and how can Mac deal with the unexpected feelings she has for him.

Beautiful Liar sucked me right in from the beginning. I was mad right alongside Slater. I wanted to know what motive Mac had for participating in ruining his life. The more I got to know Slater, the more I loved him. Mac had secrets she didn't easily give up. I admired her for what she put herself through in both the past and present and her reason for doing it. The connection between Slater and Mac was intense and I liked watching them realize they wanted to spend time together. They become protective of each other and developed a friendship with more. I had an idea of the direction the story was going to take, but I still was surprised by a couple of things that happened.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It's a standalone book told by dual POVs and ends in a good place for the two main characters.
