Let’s Talk About Wicked Sexy Liar

wicked sexy liar

Wicked Sexy Liar, by Christina Lauren, is the fourth book in the Wild Seasons series. Honestly, I was worried that I wouldn’t like it as much as Dark Wild Night, (the third book), because part of what I loved about Dark Wild Night was the graphic novelist heroine, Lola. I loved how during critical moments, she’d have a flash of imagery as if the moment were happening in a comic panel. So cool.

But Wicked Sexy Liar did not disappoint in the slightest! The humor was still there, and the conflict and sexual tension were done very well. London and Luke were both endearing in their own ways, and I especially loved London’s attitude about sex, and Luke’s wake-up call, which seemed ongoing but delighted me throughout.

Bonus–this one had a fun short story at the end, featuring the character Luke’s friend and Oliver’s employee, Not-Joe.

Let’s Talk About: The Sun is Also a Star

sun_yoon

This book, you guys! It was soooooo good! Swoony but realistic. I won’t say anything more about the end because it would be a huge spoiler, but I will say that the whole thing is just incredible. This book encapsulates everything I love about YA contemporary romance–believable characters with real problems that didn’t feel orchestrated. Their actions were plausible, their voices distinct and youthful (I mean, they sounded like legitimate teenagers to my 30-something ears).

The story for the most part takes place over a single day, but I didn’t doubt for a second that these two fell for each other.

Nicola Yoon has another popular book, Everything, Everything, which I am very interested in reading. And I just saw a movie trailer for it, so that’s exciting!

When a one-night stand feels like so much more…

Mountain lion shifter Laura Vidal has been given two choices: leave the territory to find a mate, or become a guardian of the pride. Unwilling to leave the only home she’s ever known, Laura chooses the rigorous and bruising guardian training. Honestly, she’s glad for the training because it keeps her too busy to see Dristan, the guy who rocked her world during an amazing one-night stand.

Dristan Rhees can’t forget the girl who stole his heart after a single night of unbridled passion, despite the fact that she now won’t give him the time of day. But when vampires invade their territory, he and Laura are forced to work together. In order to defend their pride, they must confront the desire that still threatens to consume them.

Like all of my books, this one’s got an HEA!

Cover Reveal: Hotel Safari Complete Collection

It is finally starting to smell a bit like spring in the Northeast. Every time I think it’s starting to look like spring, we get a cold snap, a snowstorm, or freezing rain, so I’m going to stop thinking that until we get a full two weeks above 65 degrees.

Anyway.

I’m excited to share with you the cover for the upcoming box set of the Hotel Safari series. It includes all six novellas plus a bonus short story. You can preorder it now exclusively on iBooks (and in about a week or so on Nook, Kobo, and Amazon). The Hotel Safari Complete Collection will release on all those vendors on May 2nd.

Hope you like the cover! I’m enjoying drooling over all those men in one place!

The fifth and last book in the Bright Park Romance series, Us All Along, is available now! You can find it at the following retailers:

Amazon | Apple | Barnes and Noble | Kobo

us-all-along-cover

Maryanne Gates has always been “the shy girl,” but snotty comments from her roommate about her virginity has her desperate to change that image. She’s never felt more ready to gain confidence and lose her V-card. And she wants to do it with Dan, the sexy but cocky guy of her dreams. There’s one problem: even though Dan is single, it’s obvious he has a thing for Robyn, the nicest girl in Bright Park.

But Lake DuBois, Maryanne’s most outgoing and amusing coworker, could be the solution to that problem. Lake also likes Robyn, and if Maryanne helps Lake win Robyn over, Dan might move on and finally notice Maryanne.

It sounds like the perfect plan, but after spending so much time with Lake, Maryanne’s falling hard for him. Whether she risks their friendship by confessing her feelings or sticks to the original goal of a one-night stand, her future looks full of rejection with both Lake and Dan chasing Robyn. It would take an exceptional amount of courage for “the shy girl” to take action—if she even has a chance at all.

Feel free to add Us All Along on Goodreads if you’re interested in checking it out!

First Love: Pride and Prejudice

pandp

Pride and Prejudice, is, let’s face it, a classic. I mean, dissertations have been written about this beloved book. What more could I possibly have to add?

I’ll simply tell you what I love about it.

Liza’s Love List for Pride and Prejudice

  • Mr. Darcy, who very obviously looks like Colin Firth
  • Elizabeth Bennett. She’s fantastic. If I could be friends with any fictional character, it would be her.
  • Mr. Darcy’s cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam. He’s delish.
  • Mr. Bingley and Jane!
  • The fact that every time I read it, I want Lydia to take a long walk off a short pier.
  • And I want George Wickham to be waiting for her at the bottom of the sea.
  • the way Elizabeth stands up to Darcy’s aunt
  • the dog Elizabeth plays with in the BBC adaptation when visiting Jane at Netherfield (I know, it’s not in the book. But I want that dog!)
  • the humor
  • Mr. Darcy’s first proposal
  • Mr. Darcy’s second proposal!
  • Everything! I think I might have to read it again. Like, today.

So tell me–what’s your favorite part (or parts) of Pride and Prejudice?
