British ad exec Dylan Locke isn't looking for love. He isn't looking for fate. He's definitely not looking for Audrey Lind. She's pretty, far too young, and overly romantic--in short, exhausting.

But when the girl, young enough to be his daughter, literally lands in his lap and asks for his expertise, he'd be lying if he said he wasn't interested. In her body, in her innoce

I was caught. Ensnared in her net. I’d taken the bait, and after one sweet taste, I was captured. There was nothing left for me to do but surrender, let her cut me open and skin me. Let her feast.

SWEET LIAR the latest by Laurelin Paige, is an off the charts STEAMY "May/December" romance between a sexy and powerful British businessman and a beautiful and starry-eyed college coed. We’ve already been introduced to Donovan Kinkaid, Weston King, a

He travels back and forth to New York to see his son, and to touch base with his partners Donovan, Weston and Cade. While at a business dinner one evening he meets an employees younger sister who he finds intriguing. She's extremely beautiful,
Mindy Lou's Book Review
I don't normally enjoy a girl chase man story but this one was super hot!! Right from the beginning these two sizzled on the pages! First, I love the older man trope. It's pretty darn hot that Dylan is 19 years older than Audrey. I think that's why her chasing him worked in this case.

He's so cynical about love and she believes it was fate they met. She knew he was attracted to her so she had no qualms about breaking down his barriers. Seeing his attraction through his eyes and seeing how he thou

”I was caught. Ensnared in her net. I’d taken the bait, and after one sweet taste, I was captured. There was nothing left for me to do but surrender.”

This is why Laurelin Paige will always and forever reign supreme! Sweet Liar is absolutely perfect! Dylan and Audrey hooked me from the very page and by the last, I was a breathless gasping mess.... literally panting for more. Well played LP!

The trope, main characters, secondary characters, storyline, dialogue.....All perfect! I’m a sucker for age

Please read the first books in this series/duets first if you haven't yet! They all basically happen at the same time!

We all remember Dylan from the previous books - he's the guys' London partner - a bit older and a bit more mature and quiet and the father of a 13 year old boy. And he's definitely not in the market for a young and sexy girl.

Which Audrey is.
She's the sister of Donovan's Sabrina.

Dylan is mega attracted, but he could be her father!!!!

Talk about kindle melting 🔥🔥 This one was the kind of chemistry that necessitates hubby or B.O.B. Dylan is that HOT!!

“Good girl for showing me where you need me.”

Loved the premise of this one. The sweet but just the right amount of dirty Audrey knows exactly what she wants & it’s Dean. He’s going to teach her every trick he knows. As long as neither of them involve their hearts... Add in witty dialogue, a dash of feelings & you've got a perfect romance. Definitely recommend

I have a dilemma. I just don't know who to pick. I thought initially it was Donovan. Then along came Nate, and I do love a good party. But then Weston arrived and he usurped Donovan and Nate.

There is a new boy in town, or rather a new man - Dylan Locke. British beast of a man out to win the hearts of all of the ladies.

If age gap romances float your boat, then this will float your boat. He is actually old enough to be her dad and they do play the game but not in an icky yucky way but in a - you t

This book is amazing. Short but amazing. It ends with you wanting so much more. Kizmet, fate, yes I believe in it. Knowing there is a Book 2 (hurry March) makes a believer out of me. Audrey and Dylan have the chemistry. She wants him to teach her and educate her about knowing what she wants and likes when she has sex. And teach her he does. They may have had only a couple of "lessons" but it definitely impacted them both. She knew she should not develop feelings for him and he is too turned off ...more

YUM, YUM, YUM!!! This first book in the Dirty Sweet Duet from Laurelin Paige is DELICIOUS! Dylan, the older, burned-by-love, skeptical romantic could not be more swoon-worthy. He's clearly met his match in the much younger, smart, die-hard romantic, Audrey, when she decides she needs a bit of "schooling" in "the art of romantic delights." Their chemistry jumps off the pages and into your heart in this charming, non-stop older man/younger woman tale. You won't be able to read fast enough. Will th ...more

If you have read the previous duets, you will have already met our main man Dylan - the London partner in the business.

Sweet Liar is short, hot and sexy. It does have a bit of Lolita-esque feel to it - though there is nothing illegal going on, it is just the rather large age difference that gives it that feel.

I love the spark between Dylan and Audrey. He tries to fight the attraction. She tries to push him out of his comfort zone. As wrong as they really are for

In her Dirty world, Laurelin Paige has introduced us so far to the quiet, stormy, edgy-beyond-words Donovan Kincaid (SWOON) and the sunnier, optimistic, heart-open-to-love Weston King. Now we have Dylan Locke, who believes that his heart reflects his last name.

Dylan takes his repressed Britishness to near extreme lengths as he tries to avoid falling for Audrey Lind, the younger sister of Sabrina, the woman who captured Dylan’s business parter Donovan. She’s in her early twenties, compared to Dyl

OMG! I thought Donovan's story was hot, but Dylan's has all the feels the reach my heart!

He could be her father, yet he has to admit the minute their eyes met he was immediately drawn to her powerfully. She was intelligent, vibrant, and you could tell the attraction was mutual.

Dylan is a not relationship or commitment type of man. He had made that mistake before and he had sworn NEVER to fall into that trap EVER again. Meeting Audrey took him for a loop. The emotions he was feeling had not gripp

I was provided an ARC by the author..

Laurelin never disappoints when it comes to the steam factor! And in this story between Dylan Locke and Audrey Lind, the sexual tension is on 10. Audrey is a young woman who definitely knows what she wants and how to get it, especially from Dylan.

It's almost a forbidden story of sorts, with a vast age difference. It just works though.

And LP is one of my favorite authors. Her writing style and ability to weave stories of substance with erotica is amazing. Th

I first read Sweet Liar by Laurelin Paige when it appeared in her newsletter. In this story we meet Dylan Locke from the Dirty world and a business partner of Donovan, Nate and Weston. You do not have to read any of the other duets, however, they are all great stories as well and ones I highly recommend. This is a quick introduction to Dylan and Audrey and their steamy chemistry.

Dylan Locke lives abroad and is very jaded after his divorce. He does not mind getting lost in a female, but relation

Attraction is a funny thing. Writing attraction is a sticky, difficult thing and it is done very well in this title. (Originally published as a serial in Laurelin Paige's newsletter.)

Sometimes, you are attracted to a person you meet on the subway, someone who is age appropriate and you have similar interests, and are in similar places in your life.

Other times, you are attracted to a coworker, she is 19 years younger than you, and you aren't sure if you have the sa
I loved this novella.

I loved it when I was forced to read it chapter by chapter every month last year when Laurelin released this story exclusively to her newsletter subscribers only, and my love then grew more when I received this ARC and devoured all eleven chapters once again - this time in the span of a morning.

Eleven chapters that're full of fun, flirty, and filthy banter.
Eleven chapters full of sexy, sensual, and steaming scenes.
Eleven chapters full of hot, gasp-worthy, and face-fanning mo

That’s was just a hot little read that I have to say I was like nnnooooooooo when there was no more pages.

When one believes in the fairytale and one believes in disaster, there’s going to be someone who gets stuck in the crossfire!!

A fast and hot read! Dylan is does not want to be in a relationship. He has a teenage son and business to focus on. Audrey is a twenty something college student that wants and believes in a happy ever after. These two together are so hot they will steam up your Kindle. I look forward to reading more of their story.

Dylan is one of the older single Dirty Filthy business guys in New York visiting his young son. Audrey is a 20 something college student in town visiting her sister who is Dylan’s peer. They meet as part of a group and end up as the last two in a car ride to their own places. Along the way Audrey convinces Dylan to be her Professor to improve her experience in the bedroom. It’s funny and super steamy. There are memorable moments in cars, while real estate shopping and in his foyer. It is part of ...more

A sexy delicious quick read...

Audrey and Dylan waste no time in getting Acquainted with each other. There sexual pull was there from the start. This book will light you on fire in a delicious taboo sort of way. Well that’s if the age difference is taboo enough for you. It’s sexy with a capital S. Full of taunts and teases. Can’t wait for sweet fate. I. Dying to see if she can tame the British beast.

This book, as a part of the 'Dirty' world, has that sexiness about it. This book features Audrey (Sabrina's (Dirty Filthy Rich Men) little sister) and Dylan (a business partner with the men from the other Dirty books.) This one is a bit taboo. He is almost 20 years older. She is the one doing the pursuing and seducing, while he's fighting it. This doesn't end in a cliffhanger per sa, but the story isn't complete. You will need to read the second book of this duet for the whole story. It's almost ...more
