Intimate Betrayal Blog Tour - Shawna Hill


 In Between Lies by Shawna Hill

Goodreads:
   
After a devastating break up with her cheating fiance, Savannah Summers delves into her work as the Assistant to the VP of Production in a marketing/production company. Finding refuge in work and her best friends, Savannah finally decides to try her hand at love one more time. Wanting more than ever to close the wounds of lost love and against her better judgment, she falls for Kevin Styles. This time around she vows to not give her whole self as before and keep her heart closer and guarded more than ever before.

Kevin Styles, a smooth, handsome Meteorologist at a local news station is somewhat a local celebrity in his own right. When it comes to women and playing the field, he holds all the cards. Being suave, having the right timing and patience is his forte and he is just the man to wine and dine her. However, a known player to his heart and in his not so distant past, he's looking for the right woman to tame his wild player ways.

Just when things are going perfect, Naomi Sanders, a blast from Kevin's past hits the scene. Naomi, now a revamped diva and budding actress, creates an entry into Kevin's life and bed, reigniting a first unwanted and secret rendezvous that threatens his budding relationship with Savannah. For a short while, Kevin delights in having his cake and eating it too until Naomi decides that she wants more. Spurned, Naomi stops at nothing to stake her claim on what was once hers, bringing lies, destruction, and deceit, even if it means death. Naomi is bent on a sweet revenge targeted at anyone that lies within her path. Shattered trust and betrayal is inevitable. Can Kevin and Savannah's relationship withstand Naomi's tactics?

In Between LiesReview:

Savannah Summers has had her share of heartbreak, but when she meets Kevin Styles things changed...for the better. While she was not easy to land, Kevin was everything she wanted.  He was kind, attentive, handsome, and financially stable. He was not just boyfriend material, he was the type of man that she'd jump the broom for, but everything that glitters ain't gold!  He's just a man...

Every character in this story has a past that shaped their choices and behaviors.  That's what I loved about this book!  The characters were human - flawed, confused, and completely driven by emotion.  For many, the difference between love and sex can be hard to decipher and that is clearly the case here. I don't want to give too much away, but I felt that I could relate to the characters on some level, which made them real to me.

By the time I got to the end, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next! It was reminded of the anticipation I used to feel when I watched soap operas when I was younger! LOL

Intimate Illusions by Shawna Hill

Goodreads:

Naomi is back!

What a woman will do in the name of love...or revenge!

After a bitter, destructive, and explosive parting with her former ex-lover, Kevin Styles, Naomi Saunders has no choice but to move on with her life. Kevin, equally happy and finally free of Naomi, is ready to move on as well. But before he does, he passes Naomi's taped confession to his confidant, Attorney Winston Lane, with instructions to hold it just in case she shows up to wreak havoc in his life again.

Naomi, torn with feelings of revenge and twisted love, decides to stay on the outskirts of Chicago...close to Kevin and the woman that came between them. In order for her to stay, she must take on a new persona and lifestyle that will enable her to sustain her lavish lifestyle she'd grown accustomed to living. Not wanting to go back to the struggling life she once endured before her short lived acting career, she makes a lifestyle changing move that hones her acting skills to perfection, proving she is the ultimate diva...or is she?


Intimate IllusionsReview:

"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," Kevin had no idea what he was in for when he messed with Naomi (who was obviously unstable).  When In Between Lies ended he thought he'd seen the last of her, well actually he didn't.  He had his reservations, but instead of taking care of her once and for all he left her out there to sit and wait. The opportunity to get revenge seemed to arrive on Naomi's doorstep, gift wrapped with a nice bow on top. There is something to be said about what goes on in the dark, it always comes to the light.

Shawna Hill knows how to weave a story!  The fact that all the characters were unknowingly linked together, was brilliant!  Talking about six degrees of separation! I must admit that I was silently hoping that Kevin would have learned his lesson, I was rooting for him, big time. But you can shave the fur off a tiger, but the stripes are in the skin! LOL

I could totally imagine Intimate Illusions as a movie! Lies, deceit, betrayal, sex, scandal - sounds like a movie to me! I think that Shawna Hill has only scraped the surface of her writing potential,  I am certain that she will garner much success with her writing.
