I’m always guaranteed a good read from RVD. I am love with her writing and I so enjoy her characters.

I was excited to get Jessie’s HEA and find out how Isla ended up finding hers. This journey wasn’t always nice, the trust and communication issues top on the list, but dang I thought it was fun. These two made me laugh, made me swoon, and made me fall for another couple. It was fun getting Blaire and Colin(from book 1) included on the journey.

You want a fun, sweet, and entertaining read, I reco

You only need a pair of binoculars to see the line between love and hate when it comes to Isla and Jessie. Isla knows she made a mistake and she's ready to move past it, but Jessie has other ideas and they aren't to just forget about all he's lost because of Isla.

I absolutely adored this couple, and I was so happy to see Jessie get the HEA he deserved after meeting him in the previous book. Isla was the perfect woman to bring color to his life, with the help of Go

I enjoyed reading the first book in this series a lot and I couldn't wait to read Isla's story because she was actually my favorite character in book 1 ;) I can honestly say I was NOT disappointed... Isla and Jessie were absolutely wonderful !!

Now Dirty Exes was funny, but I really laughed my ass off with this one... Goo Poh was especially hysterical... If only I could have a great aunt like that !!

Dangerous Exes was a ton of fun, hilariously addicting and oh so sexy! I have been excited for this book since I finished reading the last page of Dirty Exes! I'm happy to say that I loved this book just as much as the first! Revenge, lust, friendship and romance filled this story along with my favorite thing of all, enemies to lovers. So if you're a fan of romance stories that have love to hate in the pages, then you definitely have to pick this one up.

*Thanks again to Skyscape for sending me an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*

I absolutely loved Dirty Exes and so I was very excited about my ARC of this book. The synopsis sounded like the book was going to be right up my alley and I was looking forward to getting to know Isla and Jessie a little better. So it’s safe to say that I had very high expectations for Dangerous Exes but thankfully, Rachel Van Dyken didn’t disappoint.

This book was such an entertaining
Rachel Van Dyken continues her Liars, Inc. series with Dangerous Exes, the tale of PI dedicated to exposing cheaters Isla and hunky ex-quarterback Jessie Beckett.

When Isla took on Jessie’s vindictive ex as a client, all evidence pointed at Jessie as the guilty party. It turned out though, that he was innocent but his reputation got tarnished regardless, he lost his charity work and now he’s mad and out for blood and payback, particularly Isla’s PI company.

The only problem is that he’s also att

I've said it already too many times, but i will repeat myself for once again... I'm having such a great time with RVD's stories!!! And this one wasn't the exception!!!
The second installment of "Liars, Inc." series was even better than the previous book and much funnier!!! I loved it!!!

This book was about Isla, the other partner in "Dirty Exes" company and about Jessie Beckett, ex-quarterback and one of the main characters in the previous book!!!!

If anyone read the 1st book (which thank the Big Guy Above, I DNF'd right away..) you will know that this Hero was in the love triangle in the other book. He was married to one woman and was texting heroine in the first book (who is the BF/partner of this book's heroine) to show his interest in her again as she & he were former lovers. That book was a total crap fest and I forgot that this Author is on my shit list of NEVER-AGAIN-JOSE!

Dangerous Exes is an enemies to lovers story. Jessie feels he has been burned by Isla and Isla feels like she is being blamed for something that wasn't her fault.

These two start out breathing fire down each others necks but that doesn't hold up to the attraction they had been building before everything fell apart.

I'm not sure this can be a standalone. This book started right back up where book 1 left off. We have the same characters, just a shift in main characters.

We do get the added bonus of

Thank you to NetGalley who sent me this ARC to review in advance of the book's release.

Dangerous Exes is book #2 in the Liars, Inc. series, and I did not read book #1 prior to this one. I think I may have enjoyed this book more had I read book 1 first. It does pretty heavily reference events that must have transpired in that book, however, you won't be lost if you haven't read it.

A rather predictable read, but I did enjoy it...there were some truly stellar moments that made me laugh out loud. I

I thoroughly enjoyed Dangerous Exes. If you have read the first book, Dirty Exes, then you have already met our protaganists Jessie and Isla (and let me say I love that the name Isla is used!)

I loved this book from the first word to the last. I am a sucker for a frenemies-to-lovers story, and Jessie and Isla's was a great one.

I love the snark and the banter between them, all the while they are ignoring their lust and more for each other.

I loved the first one, but this was a close secoknd!
It was so funny and so much sexual tension.

Jessie and Isla made a fun and exciting pair. Their banter and trying to get a reaction from the other
What I also loved was that Isla made Jessie see so much more. To make him realise the world is better brighter.

But to be honest Colin and Blaire are still my favorite couple!

Good Lord above, Jessie and Isla had some fantastic chemistry!


I'm finding that Rachel Van Dyken almost always delivers the things that I love - great characters, strong storylines, and fantastic side characters. The witty banter and quirky side characters made me laugh out loud at times. I just love this world that Van Dyken has created. Highly recommend this book and the series itself! It's a fantastic read!

Recommendation appeared on USA Today’s Happy Ever After on October 30, 2018.

It’s Rachel Van Dyken, so it’s probably no surprise that Dangerous Exes is an unputdownable, swoon-worthy romance. Jessie has a grudge against Isla, and she’s not his biggest fan. He’s trying to extract a little payback when he has to begrudgingly pause his plans, call a truce and work closely with her. Neither like each other, but they realize they may have gotten their initial assessments wrong as they spend more time

I really enjoyed Dirty Exes, so it was no brainer for me to read Dangerous Exes. You have to Dirty Exes in order to understand how Dangerous Exes comes about and plays out.

We already met both Isla and Jessie in Dirty Exes, so we know what to expect of them. I loved Isla from the get-go in Dirty Exes, and she was all the more hilarious in this book. Blaire's ex-boyrfriend, Jessis is hell-bent on seeking revenge against Liars, Inc for ruining his reputation.

I love Rachel Van Dyken and Dirty Exes -the first book in this series- was one of my favorite reads this year! I freaking loved that book.

Sadly I can't say the same about Dangerous Exes. Jessie came across childish, immature, stupid...

The book got better but not enough for me to love it.

If you haven’t read Dirty Exes yet, then go and read it NOW. If not, you are doing yourself an injustice.

Still with me? Ok.

I didn’t think that I would like this sequel as much as Dirty Exes. How can you improve on perfection? Well, with a crazy grandma and some chickens Van Dyken worked miracles.

"It's just in his nature to be hotter than ninety percent of the male population, don't hold it against him."

I met both Jessie & Isla in Dirty Exes and I've been anxious and excited to read their story. They are both very colorful characters and are especially entertaining when hanging out with their best friends, Colin and Blaire. Their witty banter is hilarious. But, that was nothing compared to the hilarity of meeting Isla's aunt. She stole the show and kept me laughing till the end.

Dangerous Exes, by Rachel Van Dyken, is the second book in the Liars, Inc. series. As always, RVD did not disappoint me, I read the first book in this series and loved it. I would suggest that you read the first book in this series to fully enjoy Dangerous Exes, but it is not a must. RVD does a great job bringing the new reader to this series up to speed. Her writing style is hip and entertaining and her characters are delightful and amusing.

Isla has her own PI company which she owns with her best friend. They are known for helping women get out of bad relationships.

Jessie is one of the guys who was burned by their investigations, and he is ready to get even.

Isla has built everything she owns. She doesn't open up to many people and uses her attitude as a shield.

Jessie has nothing left after his reputation has been ruined. He was very OCD and wanted his life to look prefect even if it wasn't.

Absolutely LOVE Jessie and Isla. This book is hilarious with the insertion of Isla's Aunt Betsy. And this is definitely one of the hottest reads from Rachel!

Jessie is hell-bent on running Isla's company into the ground... since she was instrumental in ruining his life when she took on his ex-wife as a client. Who cares if it was really Vanessa who made his life miserable... if Isla hadn't helped her in any way, maybe he wouldn't be in the predicament he's in now.
