"No matter what the genre, McCray is hot! --"Romantic Times BOOKreviews"

Product Description

As an undercover agent for the NSA’s Recovery Enforcement Division, Alexi Steele is no stranger to the ways and means of the country’s most notorious sex criminals. Still, she’s never seen anything quite like this. Girls from across the globe are being recruited for a modeling competition in New York City, only to end up as enslaved prostitutes. Now it’s up to Lexi and her partner—and lover—Nicholas Donovan to infiltrate the operation.

Finding the mastermind behind the sex trafficking is only one half of the challenge. The other is Nick. Even though she has always trusted him, Lexi can’t help but wonder whether he’s keeping something from her—a shocking secret from his past on the Special Forces unit. Meanwhile, time is running out for the victims…and Lexi may be forced to do the unthinkable to see that the job is done.

The second instalment to the Lexi Steele series. I was very eager to read this especially after really enjoying the first novel of the series. Lexi and her partner/lover Nick investigate girls from across the globe that are being recruited for a modeling competition in New York City, only to end up as enslaved prostitutes.
The 'relationship' between Lexi and Nick becomes strained when he is reluctant to reveal things from his past although Lexi herself has confided in him. There is to be a third (albeit a novella) to this series in 2012 called The third temptation, so keep a look out for it's release but believe me you'll want to know more after reading this!

Let me preface by saying I like Cheyenne McCray's writing. I really do. I've been a fan of hers from the beginning. I understand the whole romantica genre that is on the uprise however, I was disgusted by this book. This book is about sex slaves that are "imported" from countries around the world. Lexi and Nick work on the RED team mission to put a stop sex slave ring. The story line sounded interesting and since I like her writing I thought I'd give it a chance.

For me this book was too graphic in the area of torturing the women. She even references using a battery and electrical wires. It got to the point where I literally skimmed past those chapters. I felt dirty after reading the book. Something I've never felt before.

I know this review doesn't go into detail about the plot. I haven't written a review in a long time, however, I felt like it was necessary to give a fair warning to other readers. I was shocked when I got to some of the parts and literally felt vile. A fun summer romance read this was not.

I have been waiting for this book from the minute I put down the first book in this series and it was worth the wait. For all you people who read The First Sin and loved it, this one was every bit as good, if not better. The Second Betrayal had me hooked from beginning to end. It was full of Action, Romance and eroticism. I was so into the book that it played like a movie in my head and had me thinking that these were real people I was reading about. I absolutely love Lexi and Nick, those 2 can really kick butt. The bad guy in this book has got to be the wickedess man that I have ever read. The only problem now is, when will Cheyenne write the next Lexi Steele book? Cheyenne if your reading this, MORE Lexi Steele books please.

I'll have to say I'm not fond of first person stories, but the author did a great job with the first book, First Sin, and this book, The Second Betrayal. I only wish Lexi and Donovan had more scenes. They focused more on trying to find the guy who is trafficking people for money than on their relationship. The ending was sour, could have been more to it. But then again, the book seems to miss something that the first book offered more of, emotions.

I hope that if there's a third book, that the writer will focus the book on the relationship with Lexi and Donovan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Second Betrayal 10 Mar 2010
By MNix - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Alexi Steele, an agent with the Recovery Enforcement Division (RED), a clandestine branch of the NSA, is unpleasantly familiar with the vast underground world of human trafficking. Heading up an op to bring down the mastermind behind multiple sex trafficking rings takes Lexi's team from their home base in Boston to New York City, where girls from all over the world are being recruited to become models, only to find themselves enslaved as prostitutes. Lexi's a pro, but she can't help but be distracted by a family emergency. Not to mention her continuing frustration that her partner and lover, Nicholas Donovan, is still keeping his past a secret from her. Going undercover to infiltrate one of the clubs where girls are being held will put all of Lexi's considerable skills to the test. The clock's ticking and there's no telling what Lexi will have to do to get the job done.

Cheyenne McCray has delivered another hard-hitting novel with the adrenaline-packed The Second Betrayal. The second Lexi Steele novel is every bit as engaging as the first, though the romance between Lexi and Nick takes a back seat to their op. Lexi continues to be a smart, kick-a** heroine you can respect, and family trauma adds a degree of vulnerability to her character that only makes her more appealing. Nick continues to be one of my favorite heroes (and not just out of those Ms. McCray creates), but he isn't as prominent in this book, which was understandable but still a pity. The secondary characters, heroes and villains alike, are as fully-fleshed out as the story's protagonists, which is one of the things I love about The Second Betrayal. I particularly hope I see more of Lexi's family and RED agent Chandra Kerrison in future novels.

As with the first Lexi Steele novel, The First Sin, Ms. McCray doesn't hold back when developing sadistic villains. This means that The Second Betrayal isn't a "light" book by any means. However, because the bad guys are so evil, I was invested all the more in RED's mission to bring them down. While the mission does take first priority in this book, Lexi and Nick's relationship does have a chance to grow, bringing brief moments of intimacy and pleasure to the page in between the action. Ms. McCray continues to enthrall with The Second Betrayal, but she leaves the story with a couple of cliffhangers that have me desperate for the next Lexi Steele novel.
