From New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes a riveting new stand alone novel in the addictive Beneath series. Are you ready to go back to New Orleans?

Look, but don't touch...she might as well wear a neon sign that says it. It just makes me want her more.
She might be above me in every way, but I still want her under me.
I've got no business touching her rich-girl skin, but that won't stop me from stealing a taste. Because rules were meant to be broken--especially when the prize is so fine.
In a world where nothing is as it seems, what's buried beneath these lies?

Beneath These Lies is the fifth book in the Beneath series but is easily enjoyed as a stand alone.

I just loved this story! I was skeptical at first about Rix, but fora known criminal he was so...sweet? Wonderful ending.

This was one that had me jumping back and forth, as we didn't know for sure at first if the main character, Valentina, was going to end up with Hennessy or Rix. And while it was exciting to know that the deep, seductive voice of Sebastian York would be reading to me, we didn't get him for a while. I figured it was in order to keep us guessing on which guy it would be in the end. But then when he did get a few chapters in, he actually was doing both Rix and Hennessy, so again, keeping you guessing. Also, I thought how the tattooed guy on the cover would give it away that it had to be Rix, well, Hennessy also has tattoos, so still no definite answer. It was obvious that Hennessy was the better match for Valentina, with who her family was. But the attraction between her and Rix was so much more and made me know that I wanted them to figure out how they could actually make this work. The fact that Rix was trying to figure out how he could get things done in his life so that he could be right for her, well, that said a lot about him. There was a lot of suspense in this one, not knowing how Rix would get things done, how he would keep Valentina safe. Knowing what Valentina had gone through in an earlier story, how she'd been attacked, it was at times hard to understand how she could let herself get anywhere near Rix's world. But he took care of her. At the end you could totally see the big event coming, all the clues were there. But there was definitely a twist that I didn't necessarily see coming right away. And I liked it. I thought this was the final book in this world, and I am so relieved to see that there are two more. I hope that the man who didn't end up with his woman in this book will be one of those final stories. I won't tell you which one it is, I'll let you read and find out. Oh yeah, I also can't WAIT to meet the author at Book Bonanza in Denver this July.

Rix messed with my head! I actually read a chapter at the end because I was so confused! I regretted it once I did it. You owe it to yourself to let this story play out. The conflicting emotions you will experience is only the start of the roller coaster ride that is Rix and Valentina! Rix is my second favorite hero in this Beneath series. I don't know where Ms. March insanely talented imagination comes from, but thank the heavens she found her calling. Each book by here just gets better and better! Rix and Valentina will surprise you in more ways than one! Don't sleep on this author - you will regret it.

I absolutely loved this book. The narration really was phenomenal in this audiobook. I am pretty much convinced that I would have liked this book if I had picked up a print copy to read but the narration made me fall in love with the story. I didn't want to stop listening and I really didn't stop very often. I am so glad that I picked this one up. I really liked the characters in this story. Characters are always important but with a romance novel they are really vital to the story. This book was just filled with great characters. Valentina is a gallery owner who has been through some things in her past. She is worried about her missing employee who is more like a little sister to her than anything else. Detective Hennessy is the man who helped her when she was victimized before. She goes to him for help in finding her employee but when he can't offer a lot of help she starts looking on her own. Rix is the local gang leader who may be able to help her find her friend. Kind of sounds a bit like a love triangle doesn't it? It really was a love triangle at the start of the book and I can't believe it but I loved that about the story. I had no idea who Valentina would end up with and I really liked them both. They were both strong characters that were a completely alpha males. I thought it was interesting how the two men were alike in so many ways but very different in others with one being a detective while the other one is running the local gang. I couldn't step away from this book because I had to know who Valentina would end up with. Eventually Valentina's choice became obvious but I found there was still so many other things that I had to know. I loved the chemistry between the characters and the sexy scenes were very well done. There was actually a lot of excitement in the story as things moved towards the end. I was really rooting for the couple to get their happily ever after despite all of the obstacles. Andi Arndt and Sebastian York really brought this story to life. The bulk of the narration was done my Ms. Arndt but Sebastian York's parts came in at just the right time to really add to the story. Their voices were both perfect for this story. Andi Arndt did a wonderful job with the parts of the book from Valentina's point of view. She displayed a wide range of emotions and did a great job with all of the dialog in the story. Sebastian York narrated the sections of the book from Detective Hennessy and Rix's points of view. He really did a fantastic job with both of the these characters and his narration really helped me imagine these two alpha men. I love both of these narrators and think that their narration styles really compliment each other. I will definitely look for both Andi Arndt and Sebastian York again soon. I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance with a bit of an edge. If you have the chance to listen to the audiobook, that is the best way to experience the story in my opinion. This is the listed as the fifth book in the series but it works well as a stand alone. This is the second book by Meghan March that I have had a chance to read and I hope to look for other works soon. I received a review copy of this audiobook from Blackstone Audio via Audiobook Jukebox for the purpose of providing an honest review.

Perfection! Beneath These Lies is hands down my favorite Meghan March book to date. I don't want to give any spoilers or details because you MUST go into this one blind. Enjoy the ride and stick with it -- you won't regret it.

Rated 4.5 Stars I did not know what to expect going in since the blurb didn't give anything away but I must say I was not disappointed at all instead I was blown away by the story and characters. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it, whether you are a fan of or new to the series, Beneath These Lies is not to be missed, it is a must read.

## DISAPPOINTING. I have loved the other books in this series but this one was bizarre. Some of it even ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, the writing is still fantastic, the plot is another story though. SPOILERS***** There's just no way this gorgeous, classy art gallery owner, who is the daughter of a prominent judge no less, would ever BE with a hardened criminal who is a gang leader. Her behavior is downright destructive. She's constantly ban*ing him in public places and anywhere else he wants. And even more unbelievable is how she met him. This heroine, who is a RAPE victim, drives BY HERSELF in a red sports car to the gang neighborhood he presides over and walks up to his front door. Again BY HERSELF. Come on!! Then when they are seeing eachother he has her every move watched. EVERYTHING she does gets reported to this gangbanger. It's beyond creepy. This is how she is going to live? Puh-leeze. She should've chosen Hennesey. I hope the next book is better because this one missed the mark!

I started this review probably five times before I just threw up my hands. So here’s what I can tell you… I loved this story. I hated this story. It frustrated me. It excited me. It was H-O-T. You will not be disappointed. You know those old black-and-white news reel clips of old Elvis Presley concerts where the girls are screaming, waving their hands in front of their face, and then fainting? I believe it’s called fangirling? Yeah…Meghan March fans when they get their hands on Beneath These Lies. Especially when they realize who the book couple is. (Insert evil laugh here) I will say I had it figured out about a third of the way through the book, but the reveal was fantastic. No, I’m not going to tell you what it is…that would be giving away a spoiler. But I will tell you it’s going to make you want to go back and reread at least one of previous Beneath books to see if you missed something.

So, the book has been published and I can leave my review. But, I find myself not wanting to tell about the H and the h. I think knowing would ruin the surprise. All I will say is that things are not always as they seem and never judge a man by his exterior. This book was HOT, HOT, HOT! Twists and turns. And the ending - I DID NOT expect that. But it brought everything together and made it perfect. This will be one of those books that I will read over and over and never get tired of. Easily my second favorite book in the series (after Ink, because, CON!) Meghan March continues to be one of my top three fave authors to read and and this my fave series ever. Bring on book 6!!!

A sexy, unexpected page turning delight! Meghan March knows how to keep you on your toes! Whether this is your first in the Beneath Series or your fifth you won't be disappointed! A steamy standalone and my new favorite! With every book Meghan out does herself. Not your cheesy chick lit romance, this book is an absolute must read!!

I started reading Meghan's work with her first book, Flash Bang. With a total of seven books available now, five of them in the Beneath series, I will tell you that Beneath These Lies is now my favorite and a top five favorite of everything I have read so far this year. Hardly anything was know about this book prior to publication and that did not hurt my experience as a reader, but enhanced it. Real life situations play out in an unique way in this novel. Don't be afraid to take the leap.

If I could give this book more stars, I would. I.WAS.NOT.READY. I loved it. This book is definitely my favorite in the Beneath series. It's a romance novel so you know there's a HEA, but the road to the HEA was not the road I expected to be taken. After reading the other books, I had an inkling of what to expect, but I was blown away...ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Meghan March, I love the way your mind worked for this installment!! This is definitely a must read!

Who loves a hot, sexy, commanding, powerful, romantic alpha male or three? Who wants to be an independent, intelligent, strong, beautiful, multiply orgasmic heroine? Who loves finding adventure, excitement, suspense, danger, twists, romance, and surprises in their books? My answer to all of these is, ME!!!!! I'm hoping you feel the same. There's so much I want to say about this book. So freaking much! But I can't. I promised I wouldn't. It's too delicious to go in cold and discover all the surprises for yourself! Trust me on this; not knowing what to expect is just going to make this book better for you. I swear. There are a few things I will tell you though. You get it all with Meghan March's 5th outing in the Beneath Series. Hot, gorgeous, tattooed men, beautiful, sexy women, steamy hot love scenes, and underneath it all, a yearning for the kind of love that sets your soul and your body on fire. It's all here. And you're gonna love every word of it. I'm not giving you any hints here, folks. No character names, no plot lines, nothing. Why? Because I received an advance copy of this novel for an honest review and I was so impressed, and so happy with the whole story, I want you to be as surprised as I was when you finally read the last words. I will tell you this, though. Beneath These Lies is proof that Meghan March gets a little better every time she sits down to write. Considering how good she was to begin with, that's high praise. The writing is outstanding and the characterizations are great. You will buy into this, hook, line, and sinker. I promise. And no, no one goes fishing, so that's not a hint. Here's a hint: If you like good writing, good romance, lots of the unexpected, plenty of action, and alphas, alphas, alphas.... get this book. Don't go skimming, or skipping around in it. Don't go reading the last few pages, and definitely don't spoil anyone else when you give this piece of reading heaven the five-star review it so richly deserves!

This series has just got better with each book released and yet again I find myself saying that this book was my favourite so far. Beneath These Lies is twistilicious fantastic. I was pulled in from page one and my attention did not falter as I couldn't wait to discover how the story would unfold. This was a great story and great characters and I would happily recommend this book/series. Beneath These Lies can be read as a stand alone, however, I would recommend reading the series in order. I can't wait for the next book to come out. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. (less)

Beneath These Lies is a spectacularly exquisite gift that exemplifies and radiates the very essence of my deepest longings while putting it in terms of the most incredible love story this author has written to date. Erase every assumption you have ever made about love because this book will eviscerate every single one of them. It will wipe the slate completely clean and show you that love can be both shockingly unexpected while also heartbreakingly perfect. Who are we to assume that we are experts about love and its most intimate interworking in our life? The best kind is the one that walks up behind you and takes you completely by surprise. A love that can rock your very foundation is one that is worth everything. While we may think that the ugliness of our past will negate any chances at true happiness, we are sorely mistaken. The only thing we need to worry about is opening our arms and our heart to love when it walks up to us and presents itself. Don’t let it slip from your fingers and walk away because that will haunt you the rest of your days. What attributes value to anything is the amount of effort that we put into attaining it. How much is love worth to you? When it stares you in the face, will you run away out of guilt, or will you take it by the hand lead it into your very soul? If that love presented itself into the most inconvenient of packages would you still accept it, or would you throw it away for something that others would perceive as safe and normal? Can living a half-life for the sake of appearances be worth the constant ache of emptiness at the very core of your being? Only the courage that lives within you can answer these character revealing questions. Do you have the courage to follow your heart no matter where love leads you? Is your heart strong enough to fight the battles that are worthy of the rewards to come? Don’t discount that still small voice inside you even if you are guided to step out on faith and take the biggest gamble of your life. It could very well be what you have been dreaming about. Meghan March, you are my real life hero! You don’t fear to follow your heart, and you don’t waver to explore the dark areas of the soul. Instead, you dive right in seeking truth and knowledge that allows the rest of us to revel in your brilliant genius and masterful ingenuity. We benefit from the gently sincerity and unabashed inquisitive nature that compels and drives you. I hope that you never stop questioning the world around you. What a dark and empty place in this world you would leave without your light of joy and grace.
