Lies by @KylieScottBooks #Suspense #BookReview

Bruce Willis playing Die Hard crossed with Mission Impossible's Tom Cruise to create the ultimate action-adventure hero in Thom Lange.


Betty Dawsey knows that breaking things off with Thom Lange is for the best. He’s nice, but boring, and their relationship has lost its spark. But steady and predictable Thom, suddenly doesn’t seem so steady and predictable when their condo explodes and she’s kidnapped by a couple of crazies claiming that Thom isn’t who he says he is.

Thom is having a hellish week. Not only is he hunting a double agent, but his fiancé dumped him, and thanks to his undercover life, she’s been kidnapped.

Turns out Thom is Operative Thom and he’s got more than a few secrets to share with Betty if he’s going to keep her alive. With both their lives on the line, their lackluster connection is suddenly replaced by an intense one. But in his line of work, feelings aren’t wanted or desired. Because feelings can be a lethal distraction.

My Review

Holy Cow!

Bruce Willis playing Die Hard crossed with Mission Impossible’s Tom Cruise to create the ultimate action-adventure hero in Thom Lange. He’s smart, savvy, knows how to handle his ah-hum, weapon, 🙂 and oh yeah, sexy-as-sin.

Betty Dawsey is done with having a lacklustre relationship with her fiancé’s shadow. Thom spent more attention on his boring job than he ever thought of spending on her. Once again she’d settled for Good-Enough instead of Mr. Perfect. When was she going to learn?

But then their house blows up and she’s kidnapped by not very nice people who insist her Thom is someone else entirely, and suddenly Betty’s world turns upside down.

This book was unputdownable!

There are so many funny, snarky comments in the midst of fast-paced action and steamy, hot scenes that I had a hard time choosing three for this post.

Best lines:

“Our sex life was not amazing.”

It takes him a moment to respond. “The average cohabitating couple has sex approximately fifty-one times a year. When you deduct time spent away due to work, we met the average.”

“We met the average? Huh,” I say. “How I aspire to always meet the average. It’s my life goal, really.”

Lies by Kyle Scott

Maybe I should just let our unknown nemesis kill me. Blow me to smithereens. Because, honestly, this is the worst breakup of a nonexistent relationship ever.

Lies by Kylie Scott

My heels sit discarded on the other side of the room where I’d thrown them earlier. A shattered heart and sore feet were too fucking much to deal with in one day.

I give Lies 5+ lovely kisses- A rollercoaster ride you’ll wish never ends!
