In the romantic suspense novel, Beneath Deception: An Unbreakable Series by A.L. Long, the worlds of two opposite, deeply complex characters collide and the explosion leaves the reader delighted. Xavier London knows he is a man not to be trusted. He has betrayed the one person who saved his life. He harbors a dark secret. However, he just wants to live his life, keeping his secrets to himself, but then he meets a woman and his life changes. Tessa Sands knows nothing but what one man has taught her. She has been made to believe that she is someone she isn't. That is until Xavier comes into her life. Can these two people who are irresistibly drawn towards each other overcome their personal demons and allow love to lead the way?

Beneath Deception: An Unbreakable Series by A.L. Long is a spellbinding romance with characters that readers will want to follow. The author creates two characters, each flawed in the way they see themselves, then puts a challenge before them. The romance grows steadily and, without inventing unnecessary twists in the story, the author capitalizes on the strength of the characters and explores the internal conflict intensely, which makes the story even more gripping. Here is a novel with characters who will move readers. The story is tightly-plotted, fast-paced, and intense in the emotions it evokes in readers. The prose is elegant and the writing is filled with suspense. You're going to stay up the whole night wanting to know what happens to these characters.

Beneath Deception is an intriguing story I would categorize as a sexy, erotic suspense thriller. It is perfectly titled because there are layers of deception gradually revealed throughout the story. Xavier London is living under a false identity. He is first introduced as a stereo typical man whore, cold, callous and insensitive. After meeting the physically and emotionally abused Tessa, Xavier transforms into a truly decent human being. The chemistry between the leads is off-the-charts. I should mention that the book does contain graphic sexual language and situations in case that is outside of your comfort zone. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy a good steamy suspense thriller.
