“Our whole relationship was like a mission to you. You assessed my life, inserted yourself into it, and then only worked within the parameters you were comfortable with.”

It was a quick and refreshing read! I liked the characters and the story was interesting , I couldn't put it down.It has action,drama ,humor and a great romance.It's different from her other books but still very good!

Truth = I am not a big romance suspense reader, but Kylie Scott, you have that talent to suck me in!!

Amazingly written, I was pushing through this book just to find out what was coming next!!! These characters are well written. Betty and Thom, oh you guys gotta read these two. From the outs to the ins, the ups and downs, and oh what a fun ride at times, definitely pick this one up. This read is not one I'll forget anytime soon. I hope to see this as a blockbuster on the screens!!

Kylie Scott has hit one out of the park with Lies. The storyline grabs you from the first chapter, shakes you around and ties you to your chair (or your reading place of choice). Forget about functioning as a responsible adult until you have finished the last chapter, you'll want to hide out and read what happens next with Betty and Thom.

There is plenty of sexual chemistry, banter and laughs between the leads, but this book doesn't rely solely on its strong characters and romance to make

I literally got this one at 9:30 pm and finished at midnight.
Another fantastic, epic wild ride of a book. I do mean wild ride because it was non stop action!
This read had it all- adventure, danger, wit, intrigue, mystery, funny and hot sexy times.
Thom is going down a favorite book boyfriend. It was refreshing to have an ‘h’ that was a real woman...not a Barbie doll. Thank you for writing such a relatable character.

I fell in mad instalove with the cover of this book, and the blurb sounded like so much fun. Kylie Scott has delivered a fast-paced action suspense romance that is exciting and unexpected, laugh out-loud funny, and one hell of an entertaining ride!

Betty is breaking up with her fiancé. They’ve been together for a year, but their relationship is mundane, as is her fiancé, Thom, who frequently travels away for work, and there is no spark left… if there ever was any. She’s literally packing

*** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review ***


When I started reading Lies by Kylie Scott, I was already hooked by this explosive beginning. A woman who had no idea about how wrong she was about her fiancé, Thom. It needed one break-up to discover many things she never would have thought of. From boring fiancé to operative agent, there was one tiny line. And this time, no more lies.

A storyline growing at a rapid tempo that would perfectly fit like a movie, with a strong hint of ro

Murder, mystery, and mayhem meets second chance romance here, folks, in a very explosive, heart pounding, action packed drama sort of way. Betty, the heroine, is betting on finally getting some answers to why her mediocre relationship with Thom, her fiance, has never been all that it should be. Well, that is after she has completely given up yet sucked right back into the arms of a man she finds she never really knew. Turns out Thom keeps some pretty strange company and has been hiding mind blow ...more

Kylie Scott is an evil genius ! Because all I can do after finishing Lies is sitting with dropped jaws and trying to organize my chaotic feelings. Because I cannot believe what I just read. It is not a thriller or a complete romantic comedy or a contemporary romance. IT IS THE PERFECT BALANCE OF ALL OF THESE! It's totally different and unique. An undercover agent. His fake fiance. A bomb blast. And the consequences of lies coming out of closet and hunting them while they run for their lives. And ...more

Betty thought the worst thing that was going to happen that day was she was moving out and leaving her fiance' Thom since things just were not working out. He traveled a lot for work and when he was home, things were just lukewarm. But when their home explodes and she gets kidnapped, things really go downhill.

It turns out Thom has some big secrets...and he is not the same boring, predictable man she has come to know. And while they are trying to stay alive, things get much more int

Kylie Scott is one of my favorite authors.
I read a great number of her books, including her latest Repeat, and even gave it a 5 star review.
Her new book, Lies, will be released next month and I received an ARC in order review it.

Unfortunately, this book did not work for me and I had a hard time finishing it.

Kylie decided to step out of her comfort zone and to write a spy book.
The book included many violent scenes, crime, pursuit and occasionally a bit of romance and sex.

Holy hell! This book was a TOTAL RUSH. from start to finish it was like I was watching a Keanu Reeves action film. One, cuz the cover totally gets my John Wick juices flowing; and two, cuz he’s my favorite action star.

I'm a huge fan of this author and I love to see my favorites step out of the box and write something a little different. That's what Kylie Scott has done with Lies. The entire time is was reading all I could think about was the movie This Means War. Have you seen it? It's cute and definitely worth a watch. Oh, and it also stars Chris pine and his deliciously blue eyes. Anyway, I digress.

Lies is a sort of mix between a rom com and a spy caper. There are a lot of laughs but the underlying theme of

This book wrecked me. And I freaking loved every. Single. Second of it. Days after reading this book and I still can’t put into words what I feel. I absolutely loved it, I can definitely tell you that! It’s been a while since I was completely consumed by a book. Lies not only consumed me, it left me with one hell of a book hangover.

I was so intrigued with this story-line. I can say, I don’t think I’ve personally read anything like it. It was witty, action packed and sexy as all hell. Poor Betty.

What a fun read!

Lies starts off with Betty packing up to leave her fiance Thom. He's mostly 'absent' from the relationship, both emotionally and physically, and she's over it. But then something explosive happens, literally, and she's kidnapped and comes to find that Thom is not - at all, not even a teeny bit - what she thought he was.

Yet, what he really is...maybe isn't what she needs either. Finding out your finace is a special agent and has been faking his relationship with you isn't the be

I have been a huge Kylie Scott fan since her Stage Dive series and am always ready for more of her amazing stories. When I read the blurb for Lies I was intrigued as it seemed as if it was part comedy, part action and suspense. For that reason I was very excited to read Thom and Betty's story!

After finding out that her unassuming and tepid fiance was playing a part and was really a dangerous secret operative, Betty must figure out if she really knows the man who she has been with for over a year

I love the author and when i had the chance to read an arc, of course, i didn't want to miss the opportunity.

One of my favourite tropes is second chance romance and this book has a lot to talk about a married couple and their second chance at love.
When you get married, you think you already know everything about the other person in your life, because you trust her and give your hopes and dreams to them. They know all your secrets as you should know all of theirs. But some people are ver

There is a reason that Kylie Scott is one of my favorite authors and I will read everything she writes. The reason is this: She is brilliant! Lies only reinforces this opinion. This suspenseful story had me hooked from page 1 and I could not put it down. Betty is in the process of leaving her fiancé when her condo is blown up and she is thrust into a world she never imagined with gun fights, secret identities and enemies everywhere. The world her fiancé lives in, the reason he was so boring, bec ...more

I really enjoyed this book - and do hope that there is more to come, and soon, as there is a lot that I still want to know! Let alone a number of singletons who could do with a chance at love, whatever their crazy job entails!

This is a fun book from beginning to end, with plenty of twists and turns and some great humour alongside the danger and the madness. Thom is in so much trouble for how he has deceived Betty, yet

WOOOOOWEEEEE! What a tangled web Kylie Scott weaves! This book was super intense. I mean from the beginning to the end it was constantly one up and down after another. Some pretty scary secrets, love on the run, and a whole lot of bullets flying kept me flipping the pages until I finished. I loved it. Betty and Thom were great together. Although, I really wanted to throat punch Thom a couple of good times.

Lies is my first book from Kylie Scott, and it didn't quite hit the mark for me. I get that with it being an action packed/suspenseful story, the flow would be at somewhat fast paced......but overall, it just seemed too rushed for me (especially the ending). I also wished that we would have gotten more of Betty & Thom's backstory before she decided to leave him, especially seeing the way she was going to break up with him. Made me more sympathetic to Thom, which I think was the opposite of h ...more

LIES was one of the best books written by Kylie Scott, this book blew me away with all of the twist and turns that happened throughout the story. This is definitely a 180 to the Stage Dive series that was the first book series that I read by Kylie Scott.
