When three college besties meet three hot guys in Vegas, anything can—and does—happen. Book Four in the New York Times Wild Seasons series that began with Sweet Filthy Boy (the Romantic Times book of the year that Sylvia Day called “a sexy, sweet treasure of a story”), Dirty Rowdy Thing, and Dark Wild Night.
For two people ambivalent about dating and love, they sure get naked around each other an awful lot . . .
London Hughes is very content to surf daily, tend bar, hang out with her group of friends, and slowly orient herself in the years after college. Everything’s going great and according to the non-plan.
But when a wave knocks her for a loop one morning, then Luke Sutter’s flirtatious smile knocks her for another that evening, she veers slightly off course…and into his path. Sure, he’s a total player, but the Why not—it’s only one night is a persistent voice in her ear.
For his part, Luke’s been on hookup autopilot for so long that he rarely ever pauses to consider what he’s doing. But after an amazing time with London, he realizes that he hasn’t been moving on from a devastating heartbreak so much as he’s been drifting to wherever—and whomever—the current takes him. With London he wants more.
Every relationship involves two people…plus their pasts. And as much as she enjoys her fling with Luke, when London learns about his past—more specifically, who’s in it—everything becomes the brand of complicated she strives to avoid. It’s up to Luke then to change some things in order to try and ensure he’s not something she’ll outright avoid as well.
Maria and Yesi’s Thoughts
We can always count on authors Christina Lauren for a fun, sexy, light-hearted read. Wicked Sexy Liar is no exception. We love the characters of Luke and London, who although strikingly gorgeous, have their own flaws which make them real, relatable and impossible not to root for.
So is this no-dating-guys-you-meet-at-work thing, like, an actual rule?”
“What if I promised I was absolutely worth it?”
Why do I think he is absolutely telling the truth? He smiles shyly, but behind his honey brown eyes, I can see he’s still hunting.
“I’m sure you’re amazing, but I don’t even remember your name.”
“Yes, you do.”
He leans forward, crossing his arms on the glossy wood.
I bite back a smile.
This story is steamy with just enough angst to get you invested in the outcome. The role reversal is so much fun to read in this book. London isn’t looking for more and Luke, for only the second time in his life, is experiencing an awakening in his heart. She is determined to keep it just sex and he keeps wanting more. The manwhore wanting more is pure genius! Karma baby! She tries with all of her might to keep her distance and he just can’t seem to stay away. It goes from hotter than sin sex to full on halt, only to have that sweet, slow burn, make you yearn for their sexy times back and for them to get that HEA they so much deserve.
Being near her, making her smile feels incredible. She can see it and I let her. I’m fucking drunk on this girl.
Although it could be read as a standalone, it is book 4 in the Wild Seasons series, which is a series we both thoroughly enjoy. The integration of the previous characters of the series within the novel is fantastic. Yet, you won’t feel like you are missing it out of anything if you haven’t read their stories yet.
With the writing team of Christina Lauren, although an HEA is almost always certain, the journey getting there is fantastic and humourous. Never a smooth easy ride for our characters or us readers, but one filled with bumps, turns, twists, humor and sizzle, making these authors one of our go to authors. These books are always fun, quick, hot reads with a good storylines to keep us engaged from word one. We highly recommend this book and this series. Whether you are a faithful fan of the series or a newcomer, you will most definitely be entertained and you will be left more than satisfied.
