Smoke & Mirrors by Skye Jordan
Publication Date: May 31, 2021
Another sizzling firefighter romance from New York Times bestselling author Skye Jordan.
I’m taking a break from women. I’ve been lied to once too often, and I’m over it.
Then Isabel, my best friend’s little sister, blows into town without notice, bringing the past with her. Her secret past.
From the moment she crashes poker night and hustles the whole firehouse out of a couple hundred bucks, I know she’s not telling the truth about why she’s here.
Lies have influenced my entire life. They’ve also torn my world apart too many times already.
But by the time the truth comes out, she’s tangled around my heart like barbed wire, and there’s no way out unscathed.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and options are my own.
Sad to say I wasn’t as obsessed with this one as I was with book one. This one left me slightly disappointed. In this book we follow Logan and Isabel. I thought both of them were hard for me to connect with and some of the things they did really bothered me. I’m understanding of both Logan and Isabel’s past issues but I thought they were a bit extreme at times. I didn’t understand why Isabel had to hide behind the myth of her success the way she did and I found that Logan was unnecessarily harsh and judgmental when it came to Isabel. I just wasn’t totally in love with this book and that makes me so sad since I loved book one.
