“Our whole relationship was like a mission to you. You assessed my life, inserted yourself into it, and then only worked within the parameters you were comfortable with.”
It has been a long time since I’ve read a Kylie Scott book and when I saw she was releasing a new book, I jumped at the chance to yet again devour one of her stories. I have always been a big fan of her writing and she did not disappoint with Lies. I love suspenseful romances and thrive on the anticipation of what’s to come next through the many twists and turns.
What would you do if you found out your fiancé was living a double life and was nothing like the person you thought he was? Shocked to say the least, without a doubt. Betty, who has been with her fiancé Thom for about a year, has decided things just aren’t going to work out between them and wants to cut their losses. They have lost any remanence of a spark between them and their whole relationship has become predictable and boring to say the least. Thom’s always so busy with work and life has become a lonely existence for Betty. She wants someone who will make her their number 1 priority and Betty thinks it’s best to leave Thom and end their relationship.
When Betty’s life as she knows it turns upside down, she then discovers who the real Thom is; he is nothing like the man she thought she knew. It appears Thom has a whole secret life that Betty knew nothing about and is not the boring and predictable man she thought he was. He’s the complete opposite in fact; he’s protective, he’s overly confident and in no way shape or form boring and predictable.
Betty is angry about discovering the real Thom, she feels hurt, betrayed and that their whole relationship was built on lies. Circumstances arise and they are on the run, attempting to find out who wants them dead. This may be the perfect opportunity for Betty to learn the real Thom. Will she love what she discovers and perhaps she prefers the fast-past and action filled life rather than the boring and routine driven existence, or is this betrayal too much for Betty and will it really be over for them once and for all?
Lies by Kylie Scott was an entertaining read that pulled me in from the start and kept me invested in this hilarious, action packed romantic suspense right up until the very end. I can’t recommend it enough.
Truth = I am not a big romance suspense reader, but Kylie Scott, you have that talent to suck me in!!
Amazingly written, I was pushing through this book just to find out what was coming next!!! These characters are well written. Betty and Thom, oh you guys gotta read these two. From the outs to the ins, the ups and downs, and oh what a fun ride at times, definitely pick this one up. This read is not one I’ll forget anytime soon. I hope to see this as a blockbuster on the screens!!
