Can’t You See takes you through a total mind trip, filled with twists and turns and blurred lines between what is real and what isn’t. This book is thrilling, consuming, and each turn of the page leaves you doubting what you just thought to be true. The ultimate story of he said/she said- I was completely addicted, unable to put it down until I had the answers.

Devin Stone keeps mostly to himself, is socially awkward, and isn’t exactly a ladies man. So when he meets a beautiful girl that seems out of his league, and she starts flirting with him he can hardly believe it. And while nothing with Meredith O’Neal is smooth sailing, he finds that he can’t walk away from her. She is equal parts charming and unbalanced. Sweet and manipulative. Then suddenly, Devin finds himself being accused of a horrendous crime- one he would never commit. Or would he?

Meredith O’Neal is new to the area, and is down on her luck. When Devin Stone enters her life, she thinks she may have found a new friend. But Devin seems to want more than friendship from her, and soon he goes from being nice to being utterly intimidating. Obsessed even. Before she knows it, Meredith becomes traps in a nightmare when the unthinkable happens to her. Or did it?

Can’t You See is uniquely set up, with the first portion of the book being from Devin’s POV, then on Meredith’s POV. There is also a third POV, Detective Riggs, the poor guy trying to figure out who is telling the truth. I really felt for the guy, since I was in the same situation. 😉

I have to applaud Chiletz for her incredible writing. To write a book that keeps readers on their toes, that has them thinking and rethinking about what they are reading, is not an easy thing to do. It’s well thought out, engaging, and was on my mind hours after I finished it. Her ability to make me believe and distrust both characters was pretty remarkable. I love when you can feel the author’s passion in their words and this is one of those instances. This was my first book by Chiletz and I think it’s safe to say she has a new fan.

So- who is deceitful? Who is the victim? Who is calculating their every move? Do you think you can decipher fact from fiction? Well, if you are in the mood to find out, pick up your copy of Can’t You See live on April 1st!

Series Spotlight- Three Little Lies

sstll

Three lies. Three swoon worthy guys. Three women that find themselves in hilarious, sexy and sometimes embarrassing predicaments. Three great books that make up one amazing novella series. This series will have you laughing out loud as you follow the journeys of characters you just can’t help but root for. With just the right amount of drama, these light-hearted books will leave you with a smile on your face and a small case of a book hang over. Sara Ney created something so fun with these series, and if you haven’t read them yet, you need to change that. Each book is a standalone, but I highly recommend reading them all, and in order.

excerpt

At long last, I’m twenty paces away, then ten. Then I’m opening our door. “Hey babe!” I call out like I always do. “I made it.” I drag my duffel over the threshold, then toss my suit coat on top, abandoning these things beside the door, because all I need now is a kiss.

Only then do I notice that our apartment smells amazing. Jamie has cooked dinner for me. Again. He is the perfect man, I swear to God.

“Hey!” he calls, emerging from the hallway leading to our bedroom. He’s wearing jeans and nothing else except—and this is unusual—a beard. “Do I know you?” He gives me a sexy smile.

“I was going to ask the same thing.” I’m staring at the sandy-blond beard. Jamie has always been clean-shaven. I mean—we’ve known each other since before facial hair. He looks different. Older, maybe.

And hot as blazes. Seriously, I can’t wait to feel that beard against my face, and maybe my balls… Jesus. The blood is already rushing south, and I’ve been home fifteen seconds.

And yet I’m just stuck there in the middle of the room for a moment, because even though it’s been eight months since Jamie and I started up together, I’m still a little stunned at my own good fortune. “Hi,” I say again, stupidly.

He walks forward, his easy gait so familiar that my heart breaks a little bit. He puts his hands on my traps and squeezes the muscle there. “Don’t go away for so long. If you do that again, I’m going to have to sneak into your hotel room on the road.”

“Promise?” I ask, and it comes out like gravel. He’s close enough now that I can smell the ocean scent of his shampoo and the beer he drank while he waited for me.

“If I ever get a winning lottery ticket and a day off, I’ll do it,” he says. “Hotel sex after a game? Sounds hot.”

Now I’m measuring the distance to our sofa and counting the layers of clothes I’ll need to remove in the next ninety seconds.
