Two women, different as night and day.
Tristana likes to keep to herself, devotedly working all day so she doesn’t think about all she is missing in life.
Seraphina, shrouded in mystery, hunts at night, surreptitiously looking for someone good, noble, and honest, while proving to herself they don’t exist.
Two men who won’t succumb to failure.
After his brother’s death, Peter spends his days trying to build a life as far away from the accusatory eyes of his hometown.
Nathan has a nightly obsession—Seraphina.
The truth that everyone is afraid to whisper.
As Peter starts to chip away at Tristana’s walls, one dare unknowingly releases something he thought he lost long ago.
And as Nathan moves in on Seraphina, one lie breaks apart the foundation of everything he thought he knew.
Meet the Geminis.

"Literature is my passion. I like to challenge myself and grow in my writings. I have many unfinished books and some that have been published under a different name. Why I chose to do this is because of my writing growth and the differentiation in genre. I don't want my future books to be judged by the inexperience of my past writings. Though I love those books, they came out of nowhere and it's apparent in the writings they were a first draft from someone with no experience.

My passions include the arts--music, photography, writing, dance, painting, films, architecture, anything that is creation. There is not much I don't like; and if I don't like it, I at least appreciate the process that took place to create it. This is something incorporated in all my books. I've known so many talented people, and truly believe no one is without a talent. Everyone has something ingrained in them; just naturally gives them the ability to create new life in the form of art. 

In my spare time, which is basically non-existent between my day job and writing, I enjoy being out in nature, traveling, spending time with family, and reading. I read everything, from contemporary to paranormal, from historical romance to erotica, from history to science. Learning is something very important to me. I really do learn something new every day, my brain storing so much useless to life-saving information. My brain, the sponge." 

Rating: 4.5 stars

There is always a book that contains a story that follows you around once you have finished it. This book is one of those, the story is so powerful and emotional that it takes your mind and soul on a journey from where is hard to come back. "Dare, Lies and Geminis" is not only a really dark and tormented, it's also a beautiful and human story about broken souls.

I think I cannot write about the story without giving something away so I will only say that the plot is well thought, it's solid and perfect. It gives you surprises at the right moments, it has flashbacks when needed and the reader builds the world around the characters without any effort.

And now about the characters, they are all amazing. Kat writes about human and loveable people, it's easy to fall for them, you want to protect them from their demons and help them any way you can. Their flaws and past make them the pillar of the story.

Everything the author put in the warning is true, the book contains sexual scenes and also violence (not only sexual) but is part of the story and was necessary to create this powerful book.

If you are looking for an emotional ride you should read this one.
