Publisher's Summary

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.

Girl needs boy to protect her.

A brief promising start, but quickly settled into a very predictable pace.

Typical girl needs boy to rescue her storyline, with very little depth or understanding of believable emotions.

Some good and entertaining scenes. Kylie Scott knows how to build some anticipation but after chapter 6 the storyline lost most of the tension and my attention.

Another hit for Kylie Scott

I love Kylie's style of writing. She has strong female leads and sexy male leads. All her books have humor and just the right amount of snark. And Lies is no exception.

Kylie branched out into a new storyline with Lies but did it with her usual humorous way. Thom and Betty played off each other well.

Andi Arndt did her usual great job narrating.

Well worth the credit.

Lies..Oh the Lies

I quite enjoyed this book. It was unlike any other Kylie book in all the good ways. It had the banter which we know and love from a Kylie book but it had so much more too. The chemistry the mystery and action. I really enjoyed the action and not knowing what was going to happen next.

Thom is unlike any other character I have met as of yet and I loved him. He gives as good as he gets and it was a fun ride. I am sad I am done it. I want more.

Usually, I have something to say that all Kylie’s books are narrated by Andi and it’s not that I don’t like Andi I do but it can get a little stale. But not with this book she really gave each character their own voice, and not one we have already heard before. Highly Recommend giving this book a listen.

Disappointed

This book is boring and the woman character is annoying SAD because I really like this author and mostly all her books. The whole whiny way in her character gets on your nerves after a while.

A solid suspenseful romance.

While I’ve read suspenseful romances, this is my first involving a spy storyline and I quite enjoyed it.

The ins and outs of trying to fool those you love and the realization of making the choice to love someone with this line of work.

Thom is the boring fiancé of Betty. In one instance, their basic life changes. His other life exposed. All the while still professing his love for Betty and their tepid relationship evolving into passionate love at any cost.

Andi is stellar in this. If you’re a fan of hers, this is an absolute treat.

I have no idea how to rate this

I have no idea how to rate this. On the one hand, it kept my attention and made me laugh a few times. On the other, the premise was so ridiculous and such a poorly done spy novel that I had to roll my eyes. That and the love story was nonsensical...or maybe just really poorly fleshed out.

I wouldn’t recommend buying this or wasting a credit on it, but if you can remind yourself not to take it seriously in any way, have a few hours to listen while driving or whatever and have AE, go for it.

The ending annoyed me

This book started so great and I was excited to listen. But, the last 30 or so minutes were ruined the while book IMO. 👎

Fun and twisty!

Loved this Kylie Scott book, chalked full of fun, adventure and steaminess! Strong female heroine that was nuanced with good details.

A satisfying fun read.

This was a new author for me. I’ve read many authors in the romance genre so I have a broad basis for comparison. Based on this I will definitely be seeking out additional books by Kylie Scott to determine if her ability to create interesting female lead characters who clearly demonstrate intelligence through their dialogue and actions as opposed to the more common (and dissatisfy) technique used by many authors of simply stating how intelligent the character is and then having them speak and act like helpless self doubting idiots. So if you are tired of romance novels populated with female leads who are constantly putting themselves down, angsting over relationships and male leads who while described as intelligent act like idiots then you’ll enjoy this book!

Hilarious and great story line

Loved it. As usually Kylie Scott has the best female characters in these books. Love how Betty is so funny and smart mouthed. Great action scenes as well.

Absolute Perfection!

Let me just say this.... Hold on to your seat!!!

This is a brilliantly written, fast paced tale of disappointment, love, espionage, heartbreak, guns, hot bods and friendship! It will have you totally enthralled until the end credits... You will question you ability to guess what happens next, then second guess, then guess again to be sure!

... You won't be disappointed!

Andi Arndt can do a better male voice than a lot of male narrators, and her performance doesn't disappoint with this book!!

This book is on the rare list of "will listen to again and again"

Can't decided between 3 or 3.5 Stars

I didn't hate this. I also didn't love it. The story was very convoluted and Thom was just not a very likeable person. And as much as Betty wanted to make me believe she was a badass. I just didn't buy it.
