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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Okay Read! 12 May 2014
By Amazeballs Book Addicts - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Conflicted was an okay read for me. I felt a little lost when I started reading.. I didn't know how all the characters fit together. I keep reading because I was curious on what was going to happen. I never really felt a connection with Mia. I think the lack of connection with the characters made the book a little hard for me to enjoy.

The storyline has some great elements. There is a cliffhanger. Even though I struggled a little with this book, I still will read the next one because I want to know what's next for Mia.

3 1/2 Stars!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Con artist marketing author... Incomplete book unless U buy series DON't buy 22 December 2015
By Kylee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
MUST BUY ALL 3 IF YOU WANT AN ENDING. I detests books like this. The description should clearly state INCOMPLETE book. Very few books in series end this way and it just feels like a con job to get you to buy more books. While I'm curious what happens I'm just going to forget about it and move on to a more REPUTABLE author who isn't a con artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars twists 10 December 2014
By Robert Williamson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I must say I'm a bit lost for words, maybe conflicted, about what to write about this book!! I felt out of breath reading it! The author has packed so much into this book. There's so many twists and turns that I thought I had everything worked out and then got thrown another curve ball and all my theories disintegrated!

It was the kind of book that I don't think was relaxing, probably because I was trying to work things out as I was reading. It was like un-knotting a ball of tangled smile at the end result, but it's a puzzle to get there!

The room mates were all different characters and they all had Mia's best interests at heart but I felt they were better friends to her, than she was to them. I can't say I connected with her as much as I did with some of the others. She seemed very young and easily led.

I'll certainly be interested to see where this story goes as I'm not sure the people I think I trust, will end up being the trustworthy ones in the end!!

By hello-booklover - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is aptly titled for it is a look at the conflicting feelings that reek havoc on our lives. Mia has been dealt a devastating hand, being betrayed by someone she loves has her on the verge of collapsing, and her only relief is her friends and roommates. This betrayal cost her what she thought was everything. She was expelled from college and now feels her dream to be a journalist is gone. When this happens she begins to lose herself and who she is. To try to regain a balance Mia accepts a deal that knocks her down in ways she didn’t expect. While on assignment for her new job she meets the man that blows her away but is also the one in the end she is to betray.
Conflicted is the first book in the Secrets and Lies Series. The book has twists and turns that some leave you hanging while others This is told in the POV of Mia and you see why she did the things she did. You feel her betrayal and feelings of being confused and lost. You also see her passion and determination. V. You will get your steamy sexy scenes and also its a mystery with tons of angst.

Ethan, the man she is spying on. The man she may ultimately lose in the end is just to good to be true. He will have you wanting to know every aspect of him inside and out. He is rich, handsome and crushworthy. He wants Mia in a bad way and the sexual tension between these two is palpable. It’s fun to watch Mia struggle over her attraction to Ethan as he divides and conquers. When they finally get together watch out your kindle will heat up.
The book and plot flows nicely and Ms. Koenig leaves you wanting more. The book is filled with angst, suspense, danger, betrayal deception and attraction. An attraction that just as it gets going a twist is put into the story and Mia’s ex adds some conflicting emotions and mucks up the waters. Why still wonder what her ex was thinking and seriously dude you did like the unforgivable do you really think you can waltz in and have all that you had back? Dream on bud at least I hope dream on??As this is happening, Micah shows that he did things for a reason and all that Mia is doing causes tension at home. We are left with so many questions to have answered and a love story to unfold in a intriguing romance that has a cliffy that leaves you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars ✰ 5 Deliciously Wicked Stars ✰ ~Ethan Fitzgerald - Just typing his name gives me the tingles!!~ 30 August 2014
By Cassia Brightmore - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When I finished this book, I had one hell of a book hangover - I felt ruined, incomplete, I wanted more and I wanted it right that second. I even went as far as to post a status about how I was thanking God that book 2 in this series has already been released. M.M. Koenig to me is an undiscovered talent - her ability to draw the reader in is unbelievable . The plot moved along fluently, the writing style crisp and unique. This book has it all - suspense, a little danger, intrigue, deception and holy hell were the love scenes hot! Conflicted was everything I wanted it to be and more, well surpassing my expectations,

Mia Ryan is certainly unlike any character I've come across before. We meet her in a rather unconventional way, in the middle of a scene where she is kicking out the latest treat of the week so to speak, from her bed. A boy whose name she can't remember, and she couldn't care less. Sex was an escape for her, and who her partner was for the night didn't matter as long as they got the hell out of there in the morning. Living off campus from the University with her fellow roommates, their house was notorious for its epic parties, and even more epic cleanup disasters. The 5 occupants were more like family than just roommates and Mia relied on Bri, Jackson, Trey and Shane to always have her back. I loved the connection between all of them, with multiple personalities like they are all living under one roof, you would think there would be a ton more drama - but at the end of the day, they all loved each other and that always came first. Mia is spiraling down a dark path after an unforgivable betrayal by her ex boyfriend lands her expelled from University. The place where she held the esteemed position of editor in chief of the school's magazine. Mia is a brilliant girl who prided herself on excelling at every task, at challenging herself to always rise to the top. Seeing her dreams of journalism go up in black cloud of smoke devastates her, especially since she was framed by someone who claimed to love her.

Opportunities never knock just once, and when the chance arises for Mia to gain not only some of her dignity and self respect back, but to also take the position of Editor in Chief of a high profile magazine, how could she not jump at it? The catch was, she would have to infiltrate a financial company back in her hometown as a spy. A mole placed with the sole purpose of reporting back to one man. A man with the intent to destroy the company - claiming that they were a front for illegal activities. I know, red flags right? Spying? Being a mole...surely Mia was smarter than that, but the carrot had been dangled and the rewards were too sweet to pass up. Against her better judgement and the opinion of her best friend Bri, she agrees and signs an iron clad contract - sealing her fate. Now all she had to do was get through the interview and land the position...

Ethan Fitzgerald. God, I can't even type his name without getting the tingles! A devilishly handsome man, and the boss of F.F. & Sweeney, he is powerful enough that he is used to getting what he wants. And when he sets eyes on Mia Ryan there's no denying the attraction, she is what he wants. Unfortunately, Mia has sworn off relationships. Having a one night stand with her new boss is not a road she wants to explore. However, the more time the two spend together, the harder it is to deny the pull. To further blurry the lines, she is there for the sole purpose of spying on his company and bringing them to ruin...

This book couldn't have had a more appropriate title. When Mia's ex returns to town, the very one that ruined her life, things get even messier. Micah is determine to win Mia back, and prove that his actions were done with good intentions. Mia and Ethan slowly being a cautious relationship together. Tension arises at home as the house divides over what Mia is doing. And at the center of it all, what is the driving force behind the spying that Mia has agreed to do?

The twists and turns and the shocking ending will leave you reeling, this is a must read for any romance fans that love a little danger mixed in.

M.M. Koenig - a name that's here to stay.
