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 fianc√© 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 Thoughts

In LIES, Kylie Scott combines romance, suspense, and action with her signature wit that her readers have come to love. She writes some of the best heroines and it's one of the reasons I'm drawn to her books. Betty is full of personality and she makes this book a fun read. 

This book made me laugh out loud and had me on the edge of my seat with the action scenes. The stakes are high and there is danger all around. It felt like watching a James Bond or Mission Impossible movie.

One of my favorite scenes:

"If this life has taught me anything, it's to appreciate the quiet moments among the chaos. You have to enjoy yourself when you can." (Thom)

"Save the philosophy. We are not having sex. . . ." (Betty)

We'll just see about that.

And as Betty discovers this new Thom, we fall in love with him right along with her. Getting this intense, protective, and sexy Thom, it makes me wish that we would have known the practical, boring Thom and what kind of act he was pulling on Betty. I'm sure there was some comedy in his blandness.

LIES is a fun, energy driven read. I loved it!
