Shoot Me is the second book in the Lie To Me Series by Lynda Filler. It is an incredibly good, action packed and fast paced story that will sweep you up on an exotic and erotic adventure, delivering you to Mexico to experience the sights, sounds and situations, right alongside the character/s. There is passion aplenty in this steamy book, as Layla takes us along on her journey. After the events in the previous book and having Mateo leave the way he did, left Layla more hurt than she would admit. She tries desperately to distract herself, but nothing seems to work for. So, Layla decides that heading to Guadalajara for a change in scenery will be just what she needs to get back on track.
What ensues is more than Layla could have imagined. With passion, friendship, danger, and many erotic experiences along the way. I really enjoyed the first book, so I was really happy to be able to continue Layla’s story. There is always a lot between the covers with Ms. Filler’s stories, and this book was no exception. Ms. Filler also manages to weave some political and social issues through her story, which alongside the other content of the story, really gave me things to think about. She paints rich and vibrant images of the scenery, from the lush and exotic, to the abject poverty, we get to ‘see’ it all right alongside the characters as the story unfolds. The author also did a wonderful job in infusing her story with emotion, and as with the previous book, I was quickly invested in these wonderful characters and their story.
A sexy, engaging, interesting and thought provoking read that also managed to tug at my heart-strings.
Thank you, Ms. Filler!
