They're out there. The liars. The cheaters. The scumbags. The players. The married men who put themselves out as single men. And, like the predators they are, they like to prey on unsuspecting single women, looking for lasting relationships.
Scott Andrews, the antagonist in The Deception, is one of those predators. Handsome and charming, Scott can, and does, pass himself off as a single man, presenting himself as the perfect catch for a single woman looking for her soulmate. And, unfortunately, for the woman, she has no idea that Scott's married.
Scott is introduced to Carrie, the leading lady, by a mutual friend. As usual, he presents himself as a single man, and he hasn't just fooled Carrie. He's also fooled their mutual friend, Allison. Not only does Allison believe that Scott is single, she also thinks he might be a good match for Carrie, who's still recovering from an earlier breakup. Scott quickly takes advantage of an all too vulnerable Carrie, but it won't take long for her to realize things just aren't adding up. By then it will too late, and the consequences will leave her life shattered.
Scott is inspired by someone I once knew, and by stories other women have told me. He may be a fictional character, but there are, unfortunately, many real life Scotts out there. Stay safe, ladies.
