4 Extra Super Sweet Stars

If a kitten loving, cupcake baking fairy princess and a sparkly rainbow colored unicorn found a way to procreate, this book would be their love child.

And you know what? I loved it!

Grey and Cal were adorable and if they were a living and breathing real life couple, I'm quite certain they'd unapologetically be annoying the crap out of everyone around them with their sweetness. Given that the last couple of books I read were full of couples playing games and manipulating
This book was so sweet and funny and gave me all kinds of happy feels. I absolutely loved it and could not stop smiling while I read it. I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting.

I loved how Grey and Cal developed their friendship first that turned into something more. Their emails and texts back and forth were so funny and sweet. I really appreciated that Cal was not an immature, selfish, cocky college manwhore that got paired with a sweet, good girl like you see in so many college age

I loved every word of this book. The texts, emails and tweets between Grey and Cal were so adorable and funny that I laughed out loud many times. This is low on angst and just a sweet love story. I loved that they really got to know each other so well through being "pen pals". Made their love very believable to me. I can't wait to read more by this author.
I'm luvin this author.

This book was brilliant it was so funny. I luvd the story the sexually chemistry was hot from the very beginning. The way these to went from not know each other at all to growing to be friend to best friend to luvin each other was great. I luv how this author writes it's so good. I luv the texts and the emails theyou were so funny and hot. Even with the distants u can see they were great together. I m dying to read more from this series. I read the Douchebag series from
The lie started off innocently enough, and obviously I never meant to get caught up in it—but then again, isn’t that what everyone says when they lie?

People lie all the time for various reasons: to hide some wrongdoing, to look better in front of others, to avoid wounding someone’s feelings and so forth.

Here however we meet Greyson V. Keller who….wait a second, first of all how awesome is this name !!! I mean, hearing this name you’re probably expecting this:

Or maybe this:

Greyson Keller tells a little white lie. To appease her matchmaking sorority sisters her spur of the moment fib regarding her relationship status doesn’t seem like such a big deal. Till her imaginary boyfriend shows up at her front door.

Cal Thompson didn’t know he was in a relationship. Till he read it on Twitter. But this little misunderstanding actually serves to bring two available people together in this cute, sweet, and sexy romantic tale.

“…a story of our friendship, bond, and love.”

I LOVED this short, sexy, funny and sweet story!! Grey is in need of a boyfriend so that her friends will stop bothering her. She tells them she's dating someone and when they ask who she pulls a name out of thin air- Cal Thompson. Only Grey doesn't know there really is a Cal Thompson and he only lives an hour away. Cal is angry when his friends tell him some guy named Grey is claiming to have a relationship with him so he sets off to meet this guy and kick his ass. That is, until he gets there ...more

4.25 stars! Awe I loved this. Cute,sweet, light,too short of a read. I loved both Grey and Cal!Adorable couple! Love the banter between them. It was refreshing that Cal was a bit insecure and couldn't believe a girl like her would like him. He was so sweet!Grey was adorable and sweet. This was a read were I got to the end and didn't even realize it. I wanted to keep reading. I want more:) I wish the epilogue was more about them in the future. I really wish we would of had more time with them ...more

Shelves: romance, steamy
This is a weird title because the only lie in the story is the meet-cute and that one wasn't even to the other party. And the beginning is a bit strained due to Cal's reaction that drew him down for their meet-cute because, well, gender assumptions from names just aren't that reliable these days and I don't know many people who would take a hard-line assumption that "Grey" == male.

All of that said, I adored this story and its protagonists. Yeah, I liked them both immensely, but what really drew

:: 4 Pretty Little Stars ::

This is a sweet, new adult/college romance that brings about the good things that can come from “meeting someone online”. Now, when I first saw the title I immediately thought this book was going to be about a queen bee who is ultimately a liar. However, instead of getting a sassy miss priss, the heroine (Greyson) is quite sweet and charming. I really adored her character. She is definitely not who I thought she was going to be so this was a pleasant surprise. This

This book was adorable! I loved the banter between Grey and Cal- they were so sweet with each other. I liked that they really got to know each other through emails, texts, and face time before they got physical. Cal only had one night stands, but didn't seem like a manwhore. I think it had been 2-3 months since his last ONS when he met Grey. Of course she hadn't been with anyone since her last relationship 2 years prior. As much as I liked the emails and texts I really wish we could have seen ...more

3.5 stars

This college romance is super sweet and angst free. It’s also a quick read. With fewer than 200 pages, it was easy to enjoy Things Liars Say in one sitting.

I was pleasantly surprised by the transition from anger to friendship to romance. The progression feels natural and unhurried despite the novel’s short length. I loved the texting and emails between Grey and Cal. The fun banter helps to develop their friendship.

There are a few questionable elements that prevented me from rating this
3.75 Stars

Overall Opinion: This was a really cute and easy read. I love the banter and the fact that the h was more attractive than the H. Usually the stories are where the h is lucky to have snagged the H's attention, so this was a nice change. I think more books should have this dynamic to show that not all of us females are so shallow that we worry about looks and not much else. I cannot say that I don't feel like attraction is important -- it is! But looks aren't always

3.5 “This is so fucking cute”-stars

This novella was the cutest. Fun little story about Grayson Keller, a sorority girl making up a fake boyfriend so her friends can back off, but turns out her “fake boyfriend” is very much real, and extremely pissed off about being used.

Did Cal “the fake boyfriend”- expect to find a gorgeous blonde when he finally met the person who has been using his name”? Hell nah.

I have already said this, but I swear the cuteness factor was all over the place. Loved how

There were a hella lotta tweets, texts, and emails and if you use these exclusively to move the story along, it needs to be done well.
The hero is suppose to be this rugged rugby player and I found his writing voice quite feminine.
I found it below par in pretty much all aspects.

Sometimes an extra scoop of sugar is good for the soul -- and this sweet as cotton candy novella was just perfect. I loved both Greyson and Calvin. They were a cute duo and their witty dialogues, whether in person, via texting, emailing or twitter were such fun to read. They attend different colleges and the hour's drive makes it difficult to get together easily -- he's a rugby star and she's busy with her sorority and a part-time job, which means most of the conversations are through social ...more

Thank author for this book! It's wonderful and I enjoy it every moment. I like this not-diva heroine and unusual cool hero. *_* thanks to those, two most of the time I have a huge smile plastered on my face. :))

Wow, awesome, holy smoke! It's not often, well actually I have never read a book where the male lead was described as pretty much unattractive. They are always abnormally hot. I LOVE THAT CAL WAS NOT THE TYPICAL BOOK BOYFRIEND!! He has issues in the looks department and everyone saw him as unattractive except for Grey. His girl. I loved it! My only complaint is that it just abruptly ended without any warning.

Cheesy is one thing. This novella is another.

I'm still not sure if this was still somehow cute (though hopelessly cheesy) or outward disgusting/annoying/gross. Okay, let's skip this. I guess the answer is pretty clear.

I know that I haven't read something with this little plot and character development but that many cheesy love declarations in a long time. Yes, this is a whole new dimension of instalove and non-existant plot-building to pretend there is more than instant attraction between two
4.5 stars

So good. It was funny, sweet and sexy. I would have rated it 5 stars if it was just a bit longer. It definitely left me wanting more. Highly recommend.
