Synopsis:

What if…

Someone you barely knew asked you for a favor.

What if…

They needed you to be something you weren’t, in exchange for nothing. Unless you count a mouth full of lies and a half-broken heart. Faker. Pretender. Liar. There are worse things to be called.

So would you do it? Would you?

Daphne Winthrop did.

And you’re about to find out what happens in the end.

Review:

Phew! Daphne and Dexter we so hot together! Ah! I loved this story! After reading Things Liars Say I immediately wanted more. I had this one on my Kindle so I had to read it and it was another great read. It was a lot of fun, super cute, hilarious story.

Daphne first sees Dexter when she is out with her girlfriends at a wine bar. He is with a bunch of jerk guys, but he doesn't seem to be happy to be with them which intrigues her. Plus he is wearing a sweater vest. To a bar. On a Saturday night. Who does that? Nothing really happens, but when they both find themselves…

Review: 
I must say I was hesitant to start reading this book. I am going to an author event this year and the author will be there and in an effort to read something by every author this was on my list. Though I didn't think it would be for me. The syno…

Synopsis:

She upholds the law. He breaks it.

Two blue hearts, both alike in bravery
In not-so-fair London, where we lay our scene

But with luck, death doesn’t always mean an end to life.

I’m good at it...really good. The draft is within my reach—it’s mine to take—but that’s not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women.

Review:

I love this author's Janus Group series, it is one of my all-time favorites, so I was excited when I found out he was writing another series. Something a bit different, but still in the sci-fi realm (something I don't read nearly enough of). And I was not disappointed.

Escape from Oz was a fun read. It follows the adventures of F…
