I had no clue what I was getting myself into when I picked up Deception by Victoria Saccenti, but boy was I in for a steamy and fun ride! This is a new author to me but something about the cover and a few teasers really drew me in and I decided to give it a go. I didn’t expect the amount of steam and bdsm lifestyle that I got but I loved it. It is a difficult topic for me to read at times because I too live an active role in alternative lifestyles and sometimes these books can come across as anything but true and realistic to those that live the life. Saccenti did a wonderful job in my opinion of incorporating the characters lifestyles without letting it become overwhelming and the only thing the book is about. I was sincerely grateful for that and it will be bringing me back for more of Saccenti’s novels very soon!
This one has a strong main character, Joe, an ex-marine with vengeance on his mind. He is determined to find the person responsible for the death of a former brother in arms. I loved the side characters just as much as Joe and was really drawn into the character development as the story went on. I loved the suspense build and was on the edge of my seat a lot of the time wondering what would come next. I look forward to seeing what else is available from Saccenti while I await anything new!
