By the age of one, Maya Black had lost her mother. Raised by her con artist father, she learned the tricks of the trade. Before she finished high school, she had amassed enough from computer hacking to pay her way through Yale. Maya adored her father so she was upset when he became involved in a partnership with a woman named Greta von Lautner. Still she had hung around…a little too long. Greta had blown the con that they were involved in and left Maya vulnerable. Her father had tried to clear the evidence, but he was too late. Maya had been arrested, but there was no conviction. She had walked out of that police department and out of her father’s life. That had been seven years ago. In her version of the witness protection program, she had changed her name to Maya DeLongue and found a position in IT at Braverment Investments, a company large enough to let her hide in plain sight.

Maya was shocked when she received a call from her brother Caleb. She had not heard from any of her family in years and did not know how he tracked her down since everything was under her new name. Caleb was getting married and wanted his sister to be there. She did not know if she was up to facing her father again, even though her family was still the most important thing to her. Caleb told her that Lilah, her best friend in high school and the slut who had stolen her boyfriend, was now dating their father. When Lilah started sending her text messages, hinting about a wedding between her and Maya’s father, Maya knew it was time to go home. But she was not going home alone.

Simon Barton, an FBI agent, made it his business to become acquainted with Maya.  Recently an ATF connection of Simon’s had let it slip that there were a slew of stolen guns spreading through Northern California and they had narrowed the leak to the Santa Cruz Mountains, where Tobias Black was located. Simon figured he could gain entrée to Tobias’ world through Maya. If he could bring Tobias down, his career would really soar. His career was everything to him. His father had walked out on him when he was eight years old and Tobias had learned not to depend on anyone. Putting himself in Maya’s path, he made her acquaintance, introducing himself as someone looking for investors for an app platform startup. Later, she offered to make a deal with him…one he could not refuse. She would invest in his app platform startup and use her contacts at Braverment to bring in other investors. In exchange, Simon would go home with her and pretend to be her boyfriend. This was ideal, Simon would have his entrée to Tobias, but now he had to come up with an app platform.

With Maya trying to keep her father out of jail and Simon, secretly trying to put him in jail, they spend time together in her hometown of Black Oak. Finding their scorching attraction to each other too hot to deny, they end up in bed together. But soon Simon realizes he is developing feelings for the woman he is using. Will his secrets ruin the best relationship he has ever had?

Hot, hot, hot!!! SEX, LIES AND MIDNIGHT, the second book in gifted author Tawny Weber’s UNDERCOVER OPERATIVES series, is an exciting, sexy contemporary romance that will have you eagerly turning the pages to see what happens next. Tobias wants his children back home and he will use any means to see that it happens, no matter how diabolical. He, a con man, had even used the FBI to achieve his goals, but now he wanted them gone. In the meantime, it seems that someone is trying to set him up. He finds himself fighting for his reputation, his freedom and perhaps even his life. Simon and Maya had both had problems in their younger years. Now that they have met, the attraction between them is overpowering. Their love scenes are sure to raise temperatures. With a well-matched hero and heroine, blistering hot love scenes, stolen guns, jealousy, witty repartee, an intriguing plot, deceit, love and loads of lies, Ms. Weber brings this story to life right before your eyes. This book is one that I could not put down. Be sure to get your own copy. It is definitely a story you do not want to miss! Although SEX, LIES AND MIDNIGHT is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. However, I advise also reading the first book in this series, SEX, LIES AND MISTLETOE, Caleb’s story. I am also anxiously awaiting the next book in this series; SEX, LIES AND VALENTINES, due out next month.
