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:

When I start reading a book for review, I confess I usually have forgotten what it is about. I read the blurb when I sign up and only pick books that sound interesting to me, but generally I have no idea what I’m getting into when I start a new book.

Lies began like most other romance novels, the female lead talking about her romantic relationship with her best friend. In this case, Betty is packing up her belongings and leaving her fiance Thom. Thom is too emotionally distant, absolutely never prioritizes Betty, and is very lackluster in bed. Perfectly average and very boring

This book, however, is like thinking you are watching 27 Dresses then being dropped into the middle of Mr & Mrs Smith. I was beyond “pleasantly surprised” – the book went from run of the mill romance to “holy crap what just happened??” Betty is quite surprised to learn that Thom is not an insurance adjuster after all.To stay alive, though, no one else can know that she left Thom. What follows is a fast-paced, intense, and exciting journey across both geographical and emotional distance. Betty wasn’t in love with Thom the insurance adjuster, but Thom the secret agent is a completely different person.

I loved this book. It takes the reader on a roller coaster of emotions and made my mouth drop in shock more than once. Lies is going in my re-read list, for sure.

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
