WICKED SEXY LIAR
Christina Lauren put a modern spin on a classic trope in their fourth Wild Seasons novel. Watching manwhore Luke meet his match and crumble under the charms of commitment-phobic London is almost too much fun. As always, the secondary characters round out the story. They really amp up the humor with a sassy, foul-mouthed grandma, while also providing a more serious look at the series’ aloof token stoner, Not Joe.
Player Luke hasn’t wanted anything serious since he split with his high-school sweetheart. But bedding a different woman every night is starting to catch up with him. When bartender London has a one-night stand with the handsome regular at her college watering hole, she doesn’t expect him to stick around. But Luke is determined to win over the enigmatic surfer chick. London’s trust issues, combined with the fact that Luke is her new friend Mia’s ex, might prove to be too problematic for these two.
