Good girls cheat too.
It's a bitter reality Lorenzo Moreno knows all too well.
After his "good girl" fiancée blind sides him by cheating on him with her ex Lorenzo swears off relationships for a while, if not forever.
Until Fate steps in.
Unable to fight the incredible pull he feels to Olivia, a girl who was supposed to be just a meaningless one night stand, Lorenzo gives into his heart. But only after making one thing utterly clear. He will not deal with any exe's or other men in her life. Period.
She's not that person anymore.
For too long Olivia Romero shamefully put up with an manipulative and overly controlling boyfriend. So when fate pairs her up with the gorgeous but intense Air Force pilot she's ready to stand her ground. Cutting all ties with her ex is no sacrifice for Olivia. It's why she willingly complies with Lorenzo's uncompromising stipulation.
As their relationship intensifies so do Lorenzo's suspicions about any man in her life. Determined to not be that weak girl anymore, Olivia demands to be trusted. Despite how vehement her new boyfriend can be, her diligence seems to be working.
But when an unforeseen crisis arises Olivia is forced to make a decision. A decision she knows in Lorenzo's jaded and suspicious mind could be unforgivable.
I never turn down a book by Elizabeth Reyes. All the books that I've read by her are really good, and Suspicious Minds in no different. This is the third book in her Fate series. I have not read the other two, but you can bet I will now. I was not lost whatsoever having not read the previous books.
Lorenzo has been badly burned by his ex fiancée. He is determined to never let another woman get close enough again to hurt him. He has many, many one night stands to keep the burn of the anger and hurt at bay. Olivia "Liv" just found out that her ex boyfriend is now engaged to who she thought was her best friend. Her relationship with him was toxic, and it was over long before she officially put an end to it, but she didn't see their engagement coming. Especially not from her best friend. When she hears the news she does something so out of character for her: she has a one night stand.
Wouldn't you know it, hot, sexy Lorenzo is the lucky guy. From the first time they lay eyes on each other, they can't stop thinking about the other. They keep running in to each other, and FINALLY give in to the attraction and pull. But Lorenzo lays out some ground rules to protect his heart. Liv is all too happy to agree to his rules of honesty and not sharing. At all. When tragedy strikes and Liv has to deal with her ex, it seems like it may be enough to tear them apart.
I absolutely loved Liv and Lorenzo together. They were the perfect fit. I really enjoyed their interaction with the other characters. Now I'm going to have to go back and read the first two stories. As expected, this book was really well written. We get to see some of the characters from the author's Moreno Brother's series, which if you haven't read, I highly suggest that you do. Suspicious Minds is another great book by Elizabeth Reyes to add to my collection.
Walking smack into a wall jolted her instantly out of her thoughts. The moment she realized the solid wall was actually a man’s chest was mortifying enough, but when her eyes met Lorenzo’s uncompromising expression, her legs went weak.
“I’m sorry,” she said, feeling her face go hot, and pulled her hand away from his chest where it’d flown in reflex.
She was caught in his intense eyes as she had been earlier. Like she had been so many times the night she met him. But it was only momentarily.
“Don’t be,” he said, glancing away quickly, and if she weren’t mistaken, he seemed a bit panicked. Maybe his wife or fiancée was here. “I wasn’t paying attention either.”
They stood there in heavy silence for a few awkward seconds until she finally smiled and shrugged. “Small world, huh?”
The miniscule nod said he agreed, but his vacant expression now bordered on hard. His eyes lowered, and she gulped when she realized he was staring at her lips. He licked his lips as the memory of his kisses inundated her. Is that what he was thinking of too? She stared at his lips as she felt his face lean in a little closer to hers and froze when she could actually feel his warm breath so close to her lips. Just when she’d been certain he was going to kiss her, he froze too and their eyes met again. “Too small maybe.”
“I can assure you,” he went on as he pulled back suddenly, “if I’d known you’d be here . . .” He glanced away with a frown without finishing then tipped the edge of his hat with a painfully forced smile. “My apologies for running into you,” he said tersely. “Have a good day.”
