Isla made one teeny little mistake. Now she and her PI company, Dirty Exes, are being targeted by one seriously angry and furiously sexy ex-quarterback. Jessie freakin’ Beckett. But there’s no way some NFL superhunk is going to take her business away. If only he didn’t make her so hot—and bothered.
Jessie wants payback for a ruined reputation. His plan? Top secret. His hard-to-hide arousal for Isla? Not so much. Especially when they let down their guards and sneak a kiss. Like any juicy scandal, it goes so viral, so fast, that only a good lie can combat the bad press. Mortal enemies in a fling? No way. Um…this is love!
Actually…could it be?
Isla’s not faking it. Jessie can’t. As the game of let’s pretend gets real, Jessie forgets all about revenge. That’s the problem. His plan is already out of his control. Now it could undo everything they’ve been trying to build. Coming clean may be the only thing that can save it.
For those of you who don’t know, this is the second book in a series called Liars, Inc. I read the first book in the series, Dirty Exes, before this one, and now looking back at both books I realize that I had an interesting experience with the series as a whole. Without giving anything away, I just want to say that the first book was a little different from the other adult romance books that I’ve read and that this left me both a little confused and happy.
Since the second book contains characters from the first book and continues all of their stories, my confused and happy feelings kind of carried over into my reading experience for Dangerous Exes. I was kind of left not knowing what to expect while also automatically expecting a certain outcome… But anyway, the storyline continued nicely into the second book, and I was happy overall with how things were wrapped up.
When it came to characters in this series, I found that I liked most of them enough to root for them and their relationships, and some of them also made me laugh out loud and/or smile. As for the writing, I found that I enjoyed it overall because it was easy to follow. I just wish that the book had been written in the third person since that is my personal preference when it comes to most genres. All in all, I enjoyed this book and its prequel, and will most probably pick up any books that come out as part of this series in the future!
