Product description

Product Description

This bartender's art lies in more than mixing drinks ...

Randy Vaughan is a six-foot-three mass of mysteries to his customers and his friends. Why does a former Secret Service agent now own Mata Hari, a successful piano bar? Where did a muscle daddy get his passion for collecting fine art? If he's as much a loner as his friends believe, why does he crave weekly sessions at an exclusive leather club?

Randy's carefully private life unravels when Jack Fraser, a handsome art historian from England, walks into his bar, anxious to get his hands on a painting Randy owns. The desperation Randy glimpses in whiskey-colored eyes draws him in, as does the desire to submit that he senses beneath Jack's elegant, driven exterior.

While wrestling with his attraction to Jack, Randy has to deal with a homeless teenager, a break-in at Mata Hari, and Jack's relentless pursuit of the painting called Sunrise. It becomes clear someone's lying to Randy. Unless he can figure out who and why, he may miss his chance at the love he's dreamed about in the hidden places of his heart.

Note: Lying Eyes is a standalone gay romance novel with consensual bondage and a strong happy ending. It contains potential spoilers for Robert Winter's prior novel, Every Breath You Take.

About the Author

Robert Winter lives and writes in Provincetown. He is a recovering lawyer who prefers writing about hot men in love much more than drafting a legal brief. He left behind the (allegedly) glamorous world of an international law firm to sit in his home office and dream up ways to torment his characters until they realize they are perfect for each other. When he isn’t writing, Robert likes to cook Indian food and explore new restaurants. He splits his attention between Andy, his partner of sixteen years, and Ling the Adventure Cat, who likes to fly in airplanes and explore the backyard jungle as long as the temperature and humidity are just right.

This book was provided by the author via IndiGo Marketing & Design in exchange for an honest review.

I thought this was really well written. I felt there were a lot of characters to keep track of at times but not overly so. Story line was good although I must say I did catch myself skimming a little bit over some of the art details. I really enjoyed the characters although I found Jack's character to be a little confusing at first. I couldn't tell if he was good or bad and while normally a little mystery is a good thing, for me it just felt confusing in this story.

I loved the characters. The flow and pace of the story was good. The book was just the right length.
The sex was hot.
It deserves 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Appearances Can Be Deceiving July 18 2017
By CHRIS - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you haven’t read Winter’s Every Breath You Take, don’t read Lying Eyes, because there will be spoilers. Now with that out of the way, I can’t recommend Lying Eyes enough. The theme of this book is simple: appearances can be deceiving. Randy, the beloved bartender from Every Breath You Take, is a bear of a man, and a former Secret Service agent. He shouldn’t have any knowledge or interest in fine art, let alone be a painter, but he is. At first glance Englishman Jack Fraser is an erudite art expert who simply wants to view a painting that Randy bought years ago while on a trip to the United Kingdom. Or is he? Danny is a young runaway who is beaten up outside of Randy’s bar, and Randy’s protective instincts kick in to help a young kid who reminds him of himself when he was that age. Danny just needs a place to stay so that he can get off the street and back on his feet, so Randy offers him a room at his place. Wouldn’t we all try to do the same thing?
This is not your standard M/M romance, because it has great suspense and mystery mixed in with some beautifully written descriptions of consensual bondage and discipline scenes. Winter has grown as a storyteller, because this book keeps you engaged from start to finish. The plot twists are totally unexpected, and they hit you like a punch in the gut. You come to love all of the characters, flaws and all, and in addition to learning that appearances can be deceiving, Lying Eyes also teaches us a valuable lesson about life: everyone deserves a second chance.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Story! July 22 2017

After reading and loving Robert's first two novels (September and Every Breath You Take), I so looked forward to reading his third novel. He did not disappoint! Again, Robert has brought to life wonderfully flawed, but lovable characters, and placed them in a thrilling plot. I never really got the whole leather idea, but after reading the author's descriptions of Randy and Jack together, I think I understand it. And, wow! What powerful emotions and deep connections soul to soul! I greatly admire Robert's work. He is a brilliant writer. I look forward to more of his stories. This (and all of his books) are highly recommended!
5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Winter So Far July 15 2017

Author Robert Winter just gets better and better with every book he writes. Lying Eyes, his third and newest, pairs a rough, bearish DC bar owner and a cheeky Brit art curator as they wrangle over a painting. Taken individually, these unlikely parts could easily crash and burn in the hands of a less able writer. But here they meshed and make for an excellent story. Check it out. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mystery suspense romance July 13 2017
By Imagine Otherworlds - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the third book I've read by Robert Winter. The first one, September, was 5+ star brilliant. But it wrecked me. It left me emotionally drained. I'm not the kind of person who can read those books often.

I had to give Winter another try. His brilliant writing called to my inner reader. I read Every Breath You Take. I enjoyed the story and was glad to find that this mystery/suspense romance didn't try to shatter my emotions. Yet I still hesitated a little with this new author. The two books were very different from each other.

When the third book, Lying Eyes, came out, I honestly thought I'd pass on it. I wasn't pulled in by the cover and the description mentioned a BDSM theme which I normally don't like reading. Then an ARC opportunity presented itself and I jumped off the fence and decided to try a third time. I kept thinking that the brilliance of the writing was worth another go.

It took less than two pages to suck me in to the story. There is something very smooth and compelling about Robert Winter's writing. It's the rare author who can take my mind completely into the plot so that I lose sight of the mechanics of the writing.

I'm convinced. I'm sold. I'm a fan!

In his latest novel, Winter let's us get to know Randy. We met him as a side character in the previous book. After reading this one, I feel I know Randy so well that I have to remind myself he's not a friend in real life.

Randy is big, strong and smart. His only weakness is a caring nature. He's been taken advantage of before and it cost him. So he's more skeptical now. He guards himself against trusting.

When Jack barges into his life, Randy shores up the walls of his reserve against the immediate attraction. He's not about to let himself be played for a fool twice in his life.

I found myself agreeing with Randy's impressions and actions where Jack was concerned. I respected his careful assessment of the situations. I admired his smart deductions about Jack's intentions.

If you would have told me, before I read this book, that I'd be interested in a plot theme revolving around art, I would have rolled my eyes. But Winter sold me on it. I bought in quickly to Jack's career as a museum curator. I was fascinated by his process in identifying and describing paintings. I felt Jack's yearning to solidly build his career and his self-worth by confirming the find of a lifetime. I worried that Jack could be capable of going too far in his aim to succeed.

I especially worried about Randy when his caring nature was fully revealed in the way he helped and sheltered a homeless teenage boy. Randy's relationship with Danny was the catalyst for my heart. I fell head over heels for Randy when I saw how caring and sympathetic he could really be. Danny served to clearly show the type of man Randy truly was.

I'm not going to post any spoilers. I'm not even going to hint at spoilers, because you should read this one blind to the plot. I'm only going to mention two things. One, this book can be easily read as a stand alone. Previous characters appear but previous knowledge of them is not needed to fully enjoy this story. Two, the BDSM aspect is barely there. We only get two small, mild scenes.

This is a mystery/suspense/thriller romance. More focus is on the mystery than the romance. The romance naturally evolves out of the plot.

Robert Winter is now an auto-buy author for me. Spectacular writing!!! You'd never believe he hasn't been writing for decades. It's really that polished.
