Review: Deceiving an Heiress By: Judy Teel

When a free-spirited heiress falls for the undercover agent investigating her family for illegal activity, she must face her fear of betrayal and learn to trust in order to reveal the real criminal.
My Review:

This is the third installment of the Cinderella series, and I must confess my favorite so far!  The other two books in the series were unrelated and can be read in any order.  This one has a bad boy in it and I LOVE bad boys, contemporary setting or not.  And this little rich girl has some very interesting personality twists.

Piper is all gloriously fashionable and pampered on the outside, but hides a heart of gold behind her carefree facade.  She doesn't allow anyone close enough to her to actually see the real her.  Especially men.  She learned early on that it was easier to leave before feelings became an issue and she ALWAYS had complete control in the bedroom.  That is until things start happening that push her into a position where a body guard is needed.  She calls her godfather to ask him for recommendations, seeking to keep it as quiet as she can.  He gives her the address of someone he highly recommends and she is grudgingly goes off to see this through.  But nothing could have prepared her for the heart-stopping male that she was going to hire.

Alex was on vacation trying to catch up on some necessary house repairs.  He needed to get everything in order to have something more to his life than the job.  He had become hardened and lonely by his job.  He craved an outside connection and a simpler life.  What he didn't count on was the fireball that came in needing his help or the attraction he felt that was uncontrollable.

Two people thrown together, uncover a deeper plot and a love that neither thought was possible.  But after all the lies are uncovered, will they be able to move forward or just simply forget everything they shared?  I really enjoyed the premise of this book and found the characters both relatable, quirky, funny, and endearing.  Even Piper's mother.   Everyone has that drama queen in their life that can't handle ANY type of situation.  I have enjoyed the series as a whole immensely, but this book is my absolute favorite.  Alex was my kind of guy! Excellent Read!!
