Born into a con artist family, Maya Nicholas abandoned the grifting life to live on the straight and narrow (and somewhat dull) years ago. But when her family is threatened—and the swindlers are on the verge of becoming the swindled— Maya swings into action. All she needs is a stand-in boyfriend, and the charming, tasty-as-sin Simon Barton will do quite nicely, thanks.

I’ve been hoodwinked in the most delightful manner. Ms. Weber turned a new page in her ability to grab a reader’s attention by doing the unexpected. I’m used to seeing a certain technique to engage my interest and she didn’t use it! I’m not sure if it’s because this is the second book in the series and having such a terrific start in the first book, Sex, Lies and Mistletoe, she decided to see where her heroine led her in Sex, Lies and
I liked this book though I was not swept away. The storyline itself is common enough with a undercover agent hooks up with a a woman either suspect or connected to said suspect, falls in love, sh*t hits the fan, man is faulted for lying/using the woman in the end HEA.

I found it hard to connect to the characters, although the two main characters obviously had chemistry, I did not see where they actually fell in love. Their time was spent mostly either lying in public, apart, or having sex - with

Overall rating -- 3.5 stars

For me, it took too long to actually get to the intrigue/mystery/investigation part of the plot. I guess I just didn't need as much setup as the author included. I know it's a Blaze, but there have been others that better integrated the intrigue with the romance through the entirety of the book.

Great Story Tawny
***original review posted at Romancing Rakes***

Oh that Tawny Weber is quite the writer. Another super sexy read!

Poor Maya Black, she sure gets her life turned upside down. First with her brother Caleb calling to let her know he's back in their hometown of Black Oak as interim Sheriff AND he's getting married to the woo woo queen's daughter. Then she gets a call from an ex-best friend alluding to her father getting engaged to a woman his daughter's age. On top of all that, a sexy undercover FBI a
This book was good at what it's supposed to be good at. The Smut lol. those parts of the book, which were most of the book, were really great. The Author really knows the words to use and when to give the perfect amount of description to make ya feel pretty hot yourself lol.
As for the other elements of the story, they were a little confusing and hard to follow. The main character comes from a family immersed in crime and power and this plays into the plot of the story. The story behind all the

(4.5 star Top Pick from Talina Perkins for Night Owl Reviews)

First Line:
THERE WAS NOTHING like a short, glittery skirt, long legs encased in smoky stockings and spiked dome
heels to make a man sit up and take notice.


This was Simon's shot. If he could bust Tobias Black, his career would skip the fast track and hit rocket speed. All he had to do was make a solid contact with the old guy's daughter. She was his entrée. A couple more conversations with her and he'd be able to claim her a frien

This was a quick moving sexy romance with engaging characters that have to overcome their secrets before they can allow themselves to fall in love. It was a quick read, and my first read in the series and by this author. While I felt that some things were a bit pat, they were entertaining. Also, the book is the middle of a larger story. Fortunately, there were few spoilers, so the meat of the relationship in the first book will be fresh for me. Now I want to go back and read about how Maya's bro ...more

Fun, quick read. I loved Simon but I think that Maya wasn't the best fit for him. He needed a stronger heroine.

A 3.5. Second book of three and I liked this one better than book one - not sure why, just did. Possibly I believed the characters more ( even though all premises are unlikely) and they had fun sex - loved the chocolate cake! The background whodunnit frame up of Tobias continues, giving him his excuse to manipulate his children into returning home. I have a few ideas on the dastardly villain, so will see if I'm right in book three. I like the author so a good solid, as expected read.
Jan 12, 2012 Elizabeth rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
I liked the book alot, I wish it were longer it felt a little rushed, but I can't wait for the last Black sibling to find his way back to Black Oak. Although, I have my suspisions as to who it is causing all the trouble for Tobias. I have to wait for the next book to see if I am right, but I amm hoping for a twist that will prove me wrong...I love it more when I get blindsided by an ending.
I was expecting this to be better than it was. Maybe it's just been too long since I've read Harlequins. I liked the characters, but the writing got really over-the-top at times, and I found myself grimacing at some of the phrasing. I'm usually a big fan of the fake relationship trope, too.
Mar 02, 2012 Brittany rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
It is mostly hot and heavy romance with a little bit of mystery and betrayal thrown in. I enjoyed it a lot.
I won this through Goodreads first reads.
Don't remember why I got this one--think I saw someone mention it somewhere. Anyway, it was cute. Nothing great or original, but not a bad read.
Dec 28, 2011 Casey rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
Not too cheesy for the genre just the right amount of sexy stuff and it had a decent plot overall a good choice for this kind of book.
I gave this a D+ review at All About Romance:

Typically romance mystery novel. Boy uses girl to solve a crime but falls in love with her.
Great story! Review to follow, I want to read the last in the trilogy.
Actually wish there'd been more conning and less ... fucking?
