#BookReview: Lies That Bind (Anastasia Phoenix #2) by Diana Rodriguez Wallach #Netgalley

About the Book: The Italian Job meets Bourne Identity meets Spy Kids in this sequel to Proof of Lies.

What if saving yourself meant destroying everyone you love?

Still reeling from everything she learned while searching for her sister in Italy, Anastasia Phoenix is ready to call it quits with spies. Then she and her friends learn that Marcus’s—her kinda boyfriend—brother, Antonio, has also gone missing. Luckily, they track down Antonio in a fiery festival in England, only to learn he has been working for the enemy, Department D, the whole time. But Antonio wants out. And so does Anastasia.

But before any of them can leave espionage and their parents’ crimes behind them, a close friend turns up dead. No one is safe, not while Department D still exists. So Anastasia and her friends embark on a dangerous plan to bring down an entire criminal empire, using every Dresden Kid they can find.

As their world becomes surrounded by spies, and the children of spies, Anastasia starts to question who she can really trust. Including her best friends…

Notes and Opinions:  This one picks up where book one left off I would have to say that I am not a fan of the instalove in this one. Although for some stories it works out in some they don't.  Unlike book one this one was very cheesy and very predictable. I really wanted to love this one like I did book one but it just fell very far from the bar I was expecting. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Predictable, Cheesy
