Winner Book of the Month RRBC 2017
“the journey of a remarkable woman”
“Lie to Me is insanely captivating, entertaining and exciting. It’s a spellbinding story that explores the psychology of sex in a way that defies Coelho’s Eleven Minutes.
Lynda Filler’s novel is character-driven, emotionally intense, and packed with action, a story that explores male psychology regarding sex and a woman’s quest to redefine her identity in a world of twisted morals, where men are driven by the quest for orgasm.
The characters are exceptional, written with depth, and a lot of humanity is injected into them.
It’s the kind of book that entertains readers while forcing them to review their sense of reality. A must-read!”
The idea of telling each personal story in the form of journal entries and emails works really well in this sense, and I personally loved reading the “firsthand account” of Carlos growing up in a Mexican village with drug cartels, murders, corruption and poverty being a typical lifestyle. Certain aspects of Carlos’s experiences, such as loss of his parents at an early age, becoming a drug mule for his family and witnessing the appalling conditions in which children have to grow in this country, were difficult to read, but that’s because they’re so real and need to be talked about.
Also, what I really appreciated was that Carlos didn’t allow his soul to harden despite all, and remained a kind-hearted young man who only craved love and companionship, which he was lucky to find in Mia. I won’t give away the plot, but trust me, it’s a great and very important read.
I can’t recommend it enough.
This is an exciting, fast-paced thriller set in today’s real Mexican Drug Wars and I can highly recommend this book to everyone. It is a great read.
My heart was pounding throughout the whole book.
Just when I thought I had it all figured out the unexpected occurred. Unorthodox, yes! Believable, Yes! A love story across time that brought so many lives together. So many lives taken, emotional avalanche, struggles, suffering and above all love out of the most unlikely circumstances. This was an exhilarating read that kept me on my toes in anticipation.
I’m so glad that I got a follow up on the first book and now I am at my wits end on when I will get to read the next. So many questions were answered as if the writer were reading my mind. And now I have many more questions, that need to be answered.

As the title says Code Raven is a prequel to the series, it is sort of an extended prologue that gives you the framework to put the rest of the series into! It introduces you to the main players, their motivation, their loss, and their drive … It gives you a taste of what is to come and I am so happy to know that I have the first story already downloaded on my reader!
It is an action-packed and mind-bending read that will not allow you to put the story down after you have started! Welcome into the world of Raven Group folks!
5 out of 5 stars
Code Raven is the prequel to the Code Raven series written by Lynda Filler and it the first book that I have read by Ms. Filler. And this author has a new fan. The characters are strong and well written and I like how they seemed real. The storyline was really good we get to see espionage, love and loss and what the main character does to overcome his loss.

5 StarsThis review is going to be short, sweet and to the point. Pick up this book. Seriously, pick it up. Although the book is a short novella that is setting up the series, it was AMAZING.Luke Raven is the founder of the Raven Group. A highly intelligent, motivated secretive billionaire that has been dealt a blow after the death of his wife and son. How will this change him?
Lynda Filler does a wonderful job setting up this story with this short novella. Not only do you learn what made Luke Raven the man he is today, you also meet a whole slew of interesting sub characters. From the beginning, Ms. Filler hooks the reader and takes you on a few twists and turns but leaves you wanting more. This book is a super-fast read but that’s okay because it will get you to the next book in the series just that quickly. From one avid reader to another. GET THIS BOOK!
Five StarsCode Raven is the prequel to the Code Raven series by Lynda Filler. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Filler and I have to say I can’t wait to dive into the rest of this series. This prequel is just enough to wet my appetite for this series. This book held my attention from beginning to end. There were action and intrigue at every turn. I love Luke Raven’s character and the team he is building. This is a little different genre than I’m used to reading, but I’m loving it.
This was fast paced and there were new characters brought in to the mix but the way they are brought in is just awesome. I just can’t believe how invested I am in this story and these people after 2 very short books. So much happens and in looking back I am totally impressed with how this author does this and makes me feel like I read a full novel when both so far have been under 100 pages.
I can not wait to dive into the next…”
“Shoot Me (Lie to Me #2) by Lynda Filler was a fast pace, steamy, interesting, crazy read, with a surprise touch of action, that rounds out this original tale of love, lust, and the dark underbelly that this world has to offer.
Talk about a book that has it all. Shoot me, the second book to the Lie to Me series, was a different type of addition. The first book drags you to the depths of the back streets of male escorts, but ends on a note where you don’t know if the story will continue. This one picks up well after the fact, with our couple from the first, split. You’re left with a sense of aw before you’ve even started. So I do highly suggest reading that first book, even if this one, sort of reads like a standalone.” Amazon review
