ABOUT THE BOOK
Life isn't always fair, and that’s something that Llewellyn Gardner knows about first hand. His life was on the fast track until one night of extreme passion changed everything.
Now eight years later, he’s still living with the aftershocks of that night. Everywhere he turns or runs, there’s another reminder. What the hell do you do when you try to drown your demons only to find out they can swim?
Shane Smith, Jr. owner of Smith Construction, could see the emotional turmoil within his new employee — it’s why he hired him. There was something about the gorgeous, misunderstood man with the overly expressive eyes that came to their small town with a past no one was willing to overlook. Shane could see the good in Llewellyn, and those eyes of his were a clear window to his soul. Shane wasn't going to let the man live a future of solitude because his past had been plagued with deceit.
Llewellyn wasn’t sure what to think about Shane. After years of protecting himself from being tricked twice, he was now faced with worry again. What would happen to him if Shane didn’t believe his truth, and walked away? Llewellyn wasn’t sure he’d be able to survive being left alone. Again.

I was already an A.E. Via fan before I read Defined by Deceit. Now, if at all possible, I am an even bigger one. This was such a creative idea that she really hit out of the park. Llew just.... omg.... I don't even know where to begin with him. Talk about a person inches away from having all his dreams just to have it ripped away, lit on fire, and pummeled to the ground OVER A SINGLE LIE! A.E. Via wrote a story about a genuinely great man having nothing but bad luck. Through the hell Llew goes through he does find a guardian angel in the most unlikely of places... prison of course! But, what was so interesting about this story is that I never for ONCE thought about people like Llew and the type of crime he's accused of, and forced to live with. Then came Shane. So, THAT'S what an angel looks like. Llew finds love in so many places. Yes, he paid an unfortunate price and lost SO much. But in the end, through tears, I read a finality that was breathtaking. This is an incredible story. Hot, in the way only A.E. can write. A plot that is sculpted perfectly. And of course absolutely and completely entertaining!
