Product description

Product Description

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 …

I was a little unsure of how this story was going to unfold. I thought we were going to be in a shared party house for most of the story but quickly found out that there was more at play.
Mia seems a bit flaky to start with. To me, she didn’t have much substance but as the story bounced around through the characters, it finally started to beef up. I was hanging to know how she was set up and why her ex-boyfriend did what he did. But she’s has to live with the way things have panned out for her.
So much for the flake I thought Mia was. There’s so much to Mia. She’s a very complex character. She takes on a position for what she was framed for. She’s sent to work and gain information for an article to expose Ethan Fitzgerald. She didn’t count on giving over a piece of her heart.
Mia blossoms when she’s with Ethan and dare I say it, Ethan blossoms when he’s with Mia. There’s drama. There’s hot sex. I don’t know how they are going to bounce back from this and you won’t find out until book number 2, Complicated.
I was kindly provided with a free copy of this book from the author to provide an honest review. Receiving this book for free did not influence my opinion nor review.

★✩★✩★ 5- Conflicted Pretty much sums it up -Stars ★✩★✩★
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

~I hated this pain. I hated being numb all the time. I hated that my life's ambitions vanished because of him. I hated myself for allowing him into my heart, only to have him break it so badly that I barely found the pieces. I'd never be able to put them back together. The damage was so severe that any attempt to fix them was useless.~

Mia Ryan may not have had the best family life growing up, but she was well on her way to achieving all her dreams when it all gets ripped away from her as a result of the worst kind of betrayal by the one man she trusted most in the world. Her ex destroyed her, tore away her future, and abandoned her all in one fell swoop; to say she now has trust issues would be an understatement. Never again will she lay her heart on the line and she lives her life hiding behind the walls now surrounding her heart; the only people she allows close to her are her roommates who also happen to be her best friends and the closest thing she has to family. When an opportunity arises to get herself back into journalism, it comes at a price and with a huge risk; but the payoff just may be worth it. She jumps in with both feet, but with a necessary cautiousness and even a little bit of guilt at the lengths she will go to to get back what she lost. When she meets Ethan Fitzgerald she knows she is in trouble; he is the first man to banish the numbness from her soul, awakening a part of her she thought long dead and turning her on with barely any effort... he is also the one man she needs to avoid getting involved with at all costs. It's to bad for her that Ethan has set his sights on her and when he wants something, nothing stands in his way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me on the edge of my seat 22 November 2015

I'm going to start by saying WOW. I've had to think and re-read for several days to get what I wanted to say ready for this review. I believe, M.M. Koenig and I are going to have a fabulous readers relationship.

Conflicted, Book One in the Secrets and Lies Series is an amazing story that introduces you to the main characters and all the key characters that will play their parts through this story. Mia Ryan was on a college path to be her best when life took an unexpected turn. When those changes take place, she's lost and it takes the help of her friends, the only family she has, to keep her going and get her back on track. She has a tendency of making choices that aren't always in her best interest and now is no different. She just wants her life back on track.

Ethan Fitzgerald is a strong, quiet, determined man on several missions of his own. His family, past and present, play into his life on several accounts but he keeps that to himself. When Mia walks into his life, he's faced with seeing what he wants for a change. Keeping the two separate is very hard on Ethan and eventually he learns he can't keep them separate. So, why try?

There is an amazing supporting cast in this story that I fell in love with too. They are wonderfully woven into the story with stories of their own. It's everything you want in a story. There's sexy fun, angsty drama, action-packed, suspense, mystery, my favorite page turning, hurry, what's next, and so much more. I can't wait to see what's next with these characters and this story. Thanks M.M. Koenig for a fabulous read.

4.0 out of 5 stars YUMMY ETHAN!! 23 February 2016
By disneytothemax - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is book 1 in the Secret and Lies series and be forewarned there's a cliffhanger!

What happens when you're in college living your life and doing what you're suppose to do and one're expelled? That's what happened to Mia. It was totally unfair and she has no idea why any of it happened.

She now lives in a house with 3 of her best college friends. They definitely have a party house going on! Until she figures out what direction to go, she is so thankful she has her roommates. They are all like family to her since she only had her uncle growing up. She recently had a break up with her boyfriend, Micah. She went home one day and all his things were gone. She had found a note from him later, but even a year later she hadn't opened it. She has taken on the life of partying and sleeping with multiple guys (of course, they each think she's being exclusive with them).

Her advisor request to see her one day at college and is there with the owner of Inside Out magazine and they have a proposition for her. She is to infiltrate herself into a company and report back her findings of what this company is up to. Her payment will be her dream job at Inside Out magazine. No problem, right!!?

That all sounds good..until she meets her boss Ethan Fitzgerald! He's a walking God!! And that's where our story takes it's first turn of mysterious events!! This book kept me on my toes, that's for sure! I just had to read faster because I had to know if she would give into her feelings for Ethan! If Micah comes back in the picture will she let him explain what happened or not? Like, I said, this book just makes you want to read fast!!

I enjoyed this book, overall. There were many twists and turns! However, sometimes I felt like it was too descriptive in parts that didn't need to be. The cliffhanger was pure torture and I do plan on reading the rest of this series!

Conflicted is the First book i have read of M.M. KOENIG and i Loved it.

Mia is living life which she always wanted. She is near to fulfilling her dreams when one day everything changes in her life. Her Life goes through a lot of twist and turns. And She gets an Offer which is too good to be true from an intriguing Ethan Fitzgerald.

CONFLICTED by M.M. Koenig was my first read by this author, and it did not disappoint, there was so much going on in this book that by the end my head was spinning, in a good way.

The story in this book is very well written and developed, the plot is very fast paced and will keep you hooked reading Mia's story. The characters in this book are very well written and you cant help but fall in love with Mia and Ethan, and the chemistry that these two have will make you wonder why it takes them so long to finally cross the line of boss/employee to lovers.

This book follows Mia as she picks up her life after her world was destroyed by her ex-boyfriend when he set her up and had her expelled from school. Picking up the pieces is harder than she thinks and when she takes a job as a mole in a business that has ties to the some shady people, Mia thinks her life is starting to come back together. What Mia did not count on was how sizzling hot her boss would be and how hard she would have to fight to resist the draw she feels to him, add in the secrets that she is keeping from her family (the good friends that she lives with), and the secrets that she is keeping from her boss, Ethan. Then there are the secrets that Ethan is keeping, did I mention that this book is filled with secrets and some really hot sex. Mia's life really spirals out of control again when she tries to get out of being the mole.

CONFLICTED by M.M. Koeing will leave you just that at the end of the book, conflicted about what's going on and how things are going to turn out between Mia and Ethan, and will leave you needing book two in the series. I would give CONFLICTED 4/5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to get mind stalked 28 May 2015
By ed productions - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is like a big cat, slowly stalking your mind. You know something Is there infiltrating your brain, but you aren’t sure what it is until all of a sudden…wham! You’re being pounced on, and fighting to tell which side is up or down. Let me tell you, the title is very appropriate, because it leaves you conflicted to say the least.

In the story, we meet our main character, Mia. She’s in a dark place after being kicked out of college—and betrayed by her long time love. Now, she lives with her best friends, and is trying to figure out what to do with her life. That all changes with one phone call, a meeting, and an offer that she can’t refuse—even if it doesn’t mesh well with her morals. However, she takes the offer and is hired as an inside mole to bring down a big financial company. In my opinion, she takes this dangerous offer in an attempt to feel something again, risky or not, she wanted to feel alive after being in the dark for so long.

Enter Ethan, the very swoon worthy male lead character, with that alpha charisma that no woman could ever refuse. I’m not talking fake alpha, I’m talking the kind that gets deep into your soul, and makes you want to do all those naughty things that you read about in those sexy books. Like everything in life, it isn’t’ fair that this man ends up being Mia’s new boss, the boss of the company that she is hired to find dirt on, and bring down.

Their attraction to one another can’t be sidelined. It’s as if there’s some force pulling them together. No matter how much Mia tries to refuse it, it only keeps getting stronger and stronger. But what happens when everything she thinks she knows about why she was hired comes crashing down? When her past catches up with her, and she’s left questioning everything? You’ll have to read to find out!

Let me tell you, this one has a slow start, but it’s worth it. It’s building you up for the blow that hits you in the end. All the little clues, and hints, mean something—so pay attention. The twists and turns have you flipping the pages fast as you begin to get some answers, and your world is rocked. Also be prepared to go out an immediately buy the second book, because this one leaves you on a cliffy! You’ll need to—because the suspense will eat you up inside. I have to know more, and I’m looking forward to getting even more answers to this romantic thriller. ~Kat
