Take Demi Moore from Disclosure and Glenn Close from Fatal Attraction and wham, you got the crazy bitch Kalyna from The Perfect Liar

Mi puntuación 6,5.
Amo a los hombres como Trussel caballerosos, amorosos, simpáticos carismáticos, prácticamente perfectos, lastima que no existen como él en la realidad.

I liked Luke and Ava as a couple. The fact that he is more beautiful and younger than her gave an additional vibe. They both have interesting personalties.I only wish it was more Luke at the beginning of the story, his feelings and thoughts about the case.
I also really enjoyed the suspense part. It was grabbing and ref ...more

Book two, The Perfect Liar, is edgy and well written. As in the first book, the reader is aware who the antagonist is. Novak has a knack for keeping up the suspense and for showing the evil that lurks beneath the surface of her villains.

What would you do for love,
Luke did not know when he opened the door that his worse nightmare came true, he is accused of rape.

However, writing was the last profession she expected to undertake. In fact, Brenda swears she didn’t have a ...more
