Part 2 of Deceptive Innocence—the first book in the sensual, thrilling Pure Sin trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Kyra Davis (Just One Night). A beautiful young woman is out for revenge—only to find the man she’s targeting has secrets as dangerous as her own, and a passion she cannot resist.
Ever since her mother died while serving time for a murder she didn’t commit, Bell has been focused on one thing: revenge. She knows her mother was set up by the head of the powerful Gable family, international bankers who will crush anyone for profit, or amusement. Now she’s determined to take the Gables down—from the inside.
Seducing her way into the life—and bed—of the family's rebellious youngest son, Lander, she figures it should be easy to uncover the secrets she needs to destroy the Gables. But Lander turns out to be much more complicated than Bell ever could have imagined. He’s enticing, intelligent, mysterious—and their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Lander is still the target, but when he touches her, he starts seeming much less like an enemy…
Which is why her anger is so necessary: memories of her mother must help fuel her quest for justice to the very end.

Let me start this review out by saying that this book is not part two of a series, it is part two of a serial so it is necessary to read the part one first. Well I guess that you could read this part as a stand alone but you would have so many unanswered questions that I don't recommend it.
While I did enjoy this part of the serial, I found that the plot wore a bit thin in places. I did enjoy getting to know more about Bell though her choices and the excuses that she tells herself. I don't really want to say much more as I don't want to give away any of the plot itself.
If you enjoyed Deceptive Innocence: Part 1 then this book is a must read especially after that cliffhanger ending. If you haven't read the first part then I recommend doing that first and just click on the title to read that review. I do want to give a warning that there is a rather hot sex scene in this book so not probably not appropriate for the younger crowd.
