GIRL, HAVE YOU READ? You know a book is good when you hear that sentence! That's exactly what we are saying at UP! Have you read Deceit and Desire by L. R. Jackson? If not, what are you waiting for? Check out our official review and more information on the book and the author below!


Kenadee is a lead agent for one of the government’s top organizations. Her top priority is to solve cases and complete covert missions assigned by the President of the United States. Her husband Aaron has no idea what it is she really does for a living and her double life is causing her marriage to crumble.

She’s faced with two options. To retire, or come clean with Aaron, including the truth about another man she can’t seem to move on from. Just as she makes her decision, she’s tasked with one last mission. Her plan is to complete it quickly so she can put her past behind her and live a normal life. But her plan backfires when Aaron becomes suspicious, and the mission that was supposed to be her last, costs her everything.




Kenadee is one intelligent, fearless and sexy lady. Her job as the leader of her three person team, SMT under the White House, calls for finesse and secrecy. Together, Kenadee along with Nate, the muscles of the group and Casey the computer guru, solve the nation's most top secret crimes and conspiracies. But their love lives are non-existent. Just ask Kenadee's husband, Aaron who is unaware of Kenadee's "alter ego" driven career and fights tooth and nail to save a marriage that's plagued by the fact that Kenadee can not reveal what she truly does. It is also plagued by the fact that she and her teammate Casey are still harboring unresolved feelings for each other from their previous relationship. Hmm Mmm. Get into that one. The suspense and drama swing into full action when they are tasked to find the daughter of one of the White House officials who has gone missing. This last job is not only threatening to rip the SMT team apart, but also Kenadee's marriage. In the end, your mouth will drop as no one survives this last mission unscathed!
