Interview: Molly McAdams + Deceiving Lies

Today I'm thrilled to welcome New Adult author Molly McAdams back to the blog to answer a few questions about her latest release, Deceiving Lies. Deceiving Lies is the second book in her Forgiving Lies series and is available now from William Morrow paperbacks. Thanks so much for stopping by Molly!

If Rachel were to write her own wedding vows to Kash, what are a couple things she would make sure to include?

Hahah, oh lord. I had a hard enough time writing my own vows ;) But I’m sure there would be something along the lines of: Loving him, fighting with him, making pancakes for him while pretending to hate them, and always stealing his green Sour Patch Kids.

Let’s say you’re moving into a new place and discover you have an insanely attractive neighbor like Kash. Are you the confident, strike-up-a-conversation type, or (like me) the more shy, observe-from-afar type?

I’m definitely no Candice, but I’m not shy either. I’m directly in the middle. I’m completely like Rachel. I would see him in passing—and by passing, I mean I would make an ass out of myself by tripping in front of him, accidentally hitting him in the face (has happened) … something along those lines.

If Kash could have a do-over for any part of his relationship (large or small) with Rachel, what moment might he wish he had a second chance at?

There are so many things I could put here. Not let Rachel walk away with Blake in Forgiving Lies, but Blake had escaped so many times before, if he hadn’t been so consumed in Rachel, he would have probably escaped again. Then there’s not leaving the night/morning she was kidnapped in Deceiving Lies, but then they would have just killed him and Mason. He could have staying after everything went down with Blake in Forgiving Lies, but it would have put a major strain in their relationship rather than giving them time to realize they needed each other. So … nothing. There’s nothing to do-over.

You write some very strong, sexy couples. Who is your all-time favorite couple from a book, movie, or TV show?

Ahh, Romeo and Juliet. I’m a Shakespeare fan, those were the only books I read in high school. I actually took Shakespeare classes. They were so young, naïve, so passionately in love, and they obviously would do anything to be together. They will always be my favorite.

Kash is a cop often assigned undercover missions. If he were to teach a class on what it takes to go undercover, what’s one of the first tips/lessons he’d emphasize to those who have never experienced it?

You have to be willing to completely lose yourself, to forget who you thought you were, and everything you know. You have to be willing to do things you grew up knowing you would never go near.

Since this series deals with secrets and lies, let’s put people to the test and see how good they are at sniffing out truth from lie. Please give us three facts about yourself, one that’s true and two that are completely false.

1. I loathe the sound of cicadas.
2. I have been pooped on by a cow.
3. One of my all-time favorite movies is: Idiocracy.

Thoughts on which is the truth? Leave your guess in the comments!

Rachel is supposed to be planning her wedding to Kash, the love of her life. After the crazy year they've had, she's ready to settle down and live a completely normal life. Well, as normal as it can be. But there's something else waiting—something threatening to tear them apart.

Kash is ready for it all with Rach. Especially if all includes having a football team of babies with his future wife. With his line of work, he knows how short life can be, and doesn't want to waste another minute of theirs. But now his past as an undercover narcotics agent has come back to haunt him ... and it's the girl he loves who's caught in the middle.

Trent Cruz's orders are clear: take the girl. But there's something about this girl that has him changing the rules and playing a dangerous game to keep her safe. When his time as Rachel's protector runs out, he will turn his back on the only life he's known, and risk everything, if it means getting her out alive.

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughter. Some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach…which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.


  1. It really sounds interesting. I don't read a lot of books like that but I like to have one from time to time. I should check out this author. Thanks for the little intervies

    (just wanted to tell you that I'm following you on bloglovin)

  2. I hate to be redundant, but I love your interviews ;) ALSO--I hate, loathe, despise, and abominate cicadas and the noise they make *shudders*

  3. Sooo I really wanted to return the favor and read your (what I imagine to be a gorgeous) review for DoG&M, but since Jas is taking my copy to a Laini Taylor signing with her, I'm trying to stay away from all spoilers until.. yeah. For a long time :D theheee, pancakes! Me loves :) Romeo and Juliet--quite romantic, but a tad over dramatic for me. I'm more of a Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy kind of girl if I had to choose a classic. It'd be so fun to go undercover and these are some good tips from Kash :D Ha! Thanks so much for this lovely interview, girls!

  4. I love your interview questions…they are so fun! I read Taking Chances and enjoyed it, so I will have to check this one out. It sounds like a fun read! Thanks for sharing this with us, Jenny!

  5. Love these questions! I love that she is a Romeo and Juliet fan!
    Fantastic interview Jenny, I need to read this one, I have heard nothing but great things about it.

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

  6. Don't even get me started on wedding vows! I'm getting married in 3 months, so I don't even want to go there right now. LOL Great interview ladies, and happy Friday! :D

  7. I still have not read a NA book ;)

  8. Fantastic interview and I totally added both books to my list!!

  9. Ahh this sounds fun. I loved the question about going undercover very cool answer. Hey I have been pooped on by a cow too. High five!

  10. I haven't heard much about this series, but I remember hearing good things about this author!
    I've been pooped on by a cow too. I spent summers on a dairy farm, it was inevitable.
    Awesome interview!

  11. I haven't heard much about this series either, but this sounds really interesting. The author is funny and those vows are really amazing. Also Kash I need to meet! Great interview as always, Jenny :)

  12. Wonderful interview questions, and I'm excited to check this series out as well. Anyone who is a fan of Romeo and Juliet surely writes some serious swoon and romance. As to the fun question: I'm going with "I have been pooped on by a cow." :)

  13. I just love your interviews. That last question was a hoot! Oh so what was the lie? I'd guess... #3? Hm... I almost picked #2, but I've almost been pooped on by a horse, but not a cow, but then I don't usually get up close to cows. LOL

  14. Oh gosh, I hope one of the lies is that you've been pooped on by a cow....cause YUCK. I totally am the type to trip and fall and make a fool of myself rather spectacularly when a hot guy is in the vicinity - in fact, my random klutziness could qualify as some kind of special hot guy radar. I absolutely MELT when wedding vows include cute personal things like stealing green sour patch kids. Love this interview, fab questions (as always, Jenny you are some kind of interview wizard) and Molly is adorable!

  15. I sincerely hope you've never been pooped on by a cow because that would be HORRIBLE. I really enjoyed this interview, though, and if a hot guy became my neighbor, I'd be the quiet/shy type who STILL managed to make a fool of herself by tripping over something. Or, you know, just a flat surface because I'm a klutz like that. =.= Anyway, thanks for sharing this, Jenny - as always, LOVE the questions! :)

  16. Aw, Molly looks like a cute girl, and that looks like a fun cover. And pooped on by a cow? I'm from Idaho, and even I think that's crazy.

  17. I have yet to read a book by Molly McAdams. Very cool interview!

  18. I love cop stories! And I didn't even try to write my vows. That idea stresses me out, though they're so beautiful too. I haven't read this series, and I'm getting some scary triangle vibes? But maybe I'm reading that wrong. However this guy sounds pretty hot. I'll take him.
