    One thought on “Cold Deception”

    1. This story serves as awesome insight into the psyche of Jude. The pain Jude suffered as a child is unimaginable. We are given the rare opportunity to witness how the pain and suffering affect Jude throughout his adult life. Although I don’t excuse his kind of crazy in the Agenda series but I do understand and appreciate his actions. I totally love Jude and this insight into his psyche makes me love him more!Cold Deception spans across Jude (Terence) as a child through his life as an adult. Jud [...]

    2. 4 Stars! Ooh I felt conflicted after reading this book and there's nothing else I'm gonna say about this book, just my mind was blown!

    3. Holy hell Batman!!!! Cold Deceptione prequel to His Agenda series or what I call it Jude's book is fkn great!!! In this book we find out how Jude Macknight becomes Jude Macknight. He had a horrific childhood.ysically abused by his father, sexually abused in an orphanage, goes to prison for a murder he didn't commit .hhh !!! He's gets out of prison and meets Lacy and falls instantly in love with her. God he tries so hard to be good and love her and spoil herhe just wants to give her the life she [...]

    4. I love Jude, in all his fucked up ways. He is the reason I will run the other direction if a man named Jude, were to pursue me in real life.Cold Deception really brings to light the reason Terence is the way he is. His childhood was shit, how do you grow out of or recover from what he went through? He only wanted Lacey to love and obey him, how hard could that be? I would love him and obey him in all things, unconditionally. I really enjoyed Cold Deception, I feel like I really know Jude now. I [...]

    5. this book was a great closure to the other 3 books in the series. we now understand jude. life had turned him into a evil monster who slowly started not caring about anyone. he wanted love and could never accept that he had it. fear made him try to control life around him. anger made him take it. if you've read books 1 through 3 read cold deception it will help tie loose ends together. if you haven't already read his agenda series then take a chance you'll love it.

    6. FOUR Stars- I received an ARC for an honest review of Cold Deception (His Agenda 0.5) by Dori LavelleI had already read all three books in His Agenda Series by Dori Lavelle, but this prequel helped me comprehend why Jude is the way he is. Except for how do you define "insane?" This is certainly a page turner and the ending may me start back over with Veiled Obsession.

    7. I loved this series. Thanks for giving me some insight on the sick, sadistic, sonofabitch that became Jude Macknight. Lol. I was riveted as usual. I can't wait for your next series " Secrets & Lace".

    8. A bit graphic for me Not my usual genre,however I enjoyed the story line. Several places were a bit much,would rather use my imagination than have it spelled out for me.

    9. Deep and darkA five star read for sure. Deeply moving darkly frightening. My heart was racing from two emotions, love and fear.

    10. OMG!! I have already read all 3 books in His Agenda Series and I wasn't disappointed with the Prequel of Jude McKnight. In order to get the true picture of who Jude is, you need to read His Agenda series in order. His Agenda: Books 1-3 Series Boxed Set amzn/B0187S15JQDori writes her books that it makes me feel I watching a movie. The events are vivid and the descriptions will blow your mind. I feel the love between Lacey and Terrence (Jude) and wanted it to last, alas it was not meant to be. To [...]

    11. Why did Terence become so obsessive with having a wife devoted to him 24/7? Well, here is his early story and the incidents that shaped what he was to become.Having read the rest of the series, it does not surprise me that he was abused as a child. What really floored me was the degree of abuse he took and survived. It is a gripping story of a man in search for love but a love so obsessive, full of dominance and exclusivity, that you can see why he eventually became the monster that held us at t [...]

    12. Have you ever wanted to get inside the head of a monster? Wonder what creates the devil with in? I live getting inside the heads of characters. Terence Pirone never had it easy growing up. Finding Lacey seemed to fill a hole in his heart, a love that he had never experienced. When things don't go according to his plans we get to see another side of him. One that's filled with hate and rage. I love the fact Dori gave us this glimpse into his earlier life, it explains so much about his life before [...]

    13. Please make sure that you read the Agenda series (3 books) prior to reading this book. You will need to read those to "get" Jude prior to his story.Well the best part about this is when you pick up a story by Dori you will not be disappointed. In this story we get an understanding of Jude. It covers his story from the time he was a child. I was biased going in, I hated Jude from reading the Agenda series. But Dori writes a story that left me feeling all kinds of emotions. In the end I my feeling [...]

    14. Advance copy given for honest review.Just when I thought Ms Lavelle couldn't blow me away she did with this book.Want to know what Jude MacKnight was like before he married Haley, well this is the book. Find out what made him the man he became and we meet Lacey the woman who brought out his dark side.I actually felt for Terence aka Jude at the start of this book and how he was treated and what he went through. But with Lacey he had this softer side but it seems his dark side was waiting to just [...]

    15. I loved this book.It was interesting to see the events leading up to the His Agenda series. Watching Jude McKnight's descent into madness left me reeling. This book is a standalone, however you should read book 1-3 of His Agenda first. A warning though. The story is definitely not for the faint of heart. It deals with certain themes and issues that will make some uncomfortable and possibly horrified. That being said, the author was able to keep my interest the entire book and there were parts th [...]

    16. If you read His Agenda series--- this is prequel is a most. If you haven't you must read the whole series . it is dark and dangerous. In Cold Deception you learn the things in life that made Jude Macknight the man he has become. I suggest reading the the series before reading Cold Deception. I couldn't put this book down. Another great book from Dori Lavelle. Can't wait to see what she has in the works next

    17. Criminal mindI can't believe how psychotic Terrence became. How he reset and became normal again and started the vicious cycle over again. He experienced a brutal upbringing, never feeling live and always feeling pain and bereft. I can say wholeheartedly that he was indeed insane and should have been institutionalized. How could Lacey not have ran and sought help? Marion is a puppet and he gets what's coming!

    18. FOUR Stars! I received an ARC for an honest review of Cold Deception (His Agenda 0.5) by Dori LavelleI had already read all three books in His Agenda Series by Dori Lavelle, but this prequel helped me comprehend why Jude is the way he is. Except for how do you define "insane?" This is certainly a page turner and the ending may me start back over with Veiled Obsession.~ Crystal

    19. Team jude here so be warned. But thank you Dori for showing his past life as Terrance. Others needed to know what created the demons inside of him to understand him like I do. I love him even more. So sadden this wonderful story has come to a end and this was the perfect ending. My heart broke for him. Loved this series so much will always be one of my favorites.

    20. What Led to it AllI was very impressed how it started and the ending. I was able to understand who Jude really was and how he met Lacey. Towards the end was sad but it was expected to end that way and for it to lead into how Haley fits in. Awesome read!

    21. I really think this should be read after the first 3 books as it could spoil some of the plotlines if read first.This series is a complete mind-f"ck. There really is no other way to describe it. I thoroughly enjoyed the series, and loved how this book told how it all began and why.

    22. Insight into JudeAlthough I started this book knowing Jude's fate because of the other three books, I still rooted for the love of Lacey and Jude. Poor Jude (yes, I said it) had a tragic childhood, and with a beginning so twisted, how could he be normal? Five excellent stars!

    23. There is a prequel to the crazy asshole. I NEED THIS NOW!!! .Crap my kindle unlimited is full. I'll be back for you Jude!!!

    24. After reading all the books in this series I ended up hating Jude but this book has me so conflicted, I not sure how i feel but i am mind blown
