I enjoy Kylie Scott’s novels, one of my favourite reads last year was her book It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time which kept me up all night. When given the opportunity to read her new novel Lies, I jumped at the chance and am so glad I did, it was an awesome read!
Kylie has given us something new with Lies and I enjoyed it so much. Betty is leaving her fiance Thom because he is boring and their relationship just isn’t what she wants or needs. But as she is leaving things take an out of control turn for the worst and she finds herself in constant danger whilst at the same time finding out Thom isn’t who he says he is, not by a long shot.
He’s an operative and people are out to kill him, and now Betty is in their line of fire too.
I just loved Betty’s character, she was pissed at finding out all the Lies Thom had fed her, pissed at being taken hostage, at being in danger and on the run. But she takes it in her stride, her attitude is great and she doesn’t let Thom feed her any more lies. She has a great sense of humour as well as a sense of self-preservation, she turns into a bit of a badass over the course of her experience.
Thom is also many things, and as Betty starts to see the real Thom she realises that maybe she doesn’t want to leave after all. Thom is sexy and a definite badass, he’s also socially awkward at times with Betty, but I absolutely loved the dynamics between him and Betty. The chemistry between them is there too and I loved seeing them try and work out what their relationship actually was.
Thom’s crew, or the Zoo as Betty calls them are a mixed bunch and some aren’t on his side after all. The bad guys are full-on and dangerous and you wonder if these two and the Zoo crew can survive.
This book is action-packed, exciting, fast, with some laughs along the way as well as some serious stuff.
Thanks to Social Butterfly PR for a digital copy of this book in return for an honest review.
