Couldn't warm up to the shallow heroine. All she thought about was her bad sex life with her ex husband. Talk about zero character depth.

I wasn't feeling the chemistry and the issues were just misconceptions and miscommunications. Since that was the case, when Aspen explained what happened, Cruz didn't have a leg to stand on and caved quite easily. He wasn't the stereotypical male usually found in harlequin romance. He also admitted love rather easily, while there's nothing wrong with that, it wasn't hard won on either side. The title doesn't really fit either because Cruz didn't even follow through on the deal.

Michelle Conder is a fabulous writer and as her previous books have shown, she knows how to hook the readers on to the story from the first page. The Most Expensive Lie of All has a story based on misunderstandings which get cleared up throughout the story. I liked how there was a nice interlinking of the past and the present.Read More

This as an enjoyable quick read. I didn't really connect with the characters but the story was well written. It was irritating how she kept going back and thinking about her ex-husband. I was glad to see the there was a HEA.

It was okay, I didn't really feel the passion or anything between hero and heroine. It was a jump to conclusions and leave it for years to fester until it finally unravels and they learn the truth novel.

I really enjoyed Cruz and Aspen's story. I love Michelle's voice and her heroines are always strong. Cruz was darkly delicious and the heat between them was tangible..
