Today we are delighted to be on tour with Laurelin Paige’s all-new contemporary romance, SWEET LIAR (Dirty Sweet #1)
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 innocence, in her philosophy.
In the kind of kismet that starts with kisses.
But Audrey isn’t looking for love either–she’s looking for lessons, and she’s certain Dylan knows everything she needs to learn.
If he agrees to play the teacher can he keep his heart?
Of course he can.
Then again, he might be lying.

Dylan Locke the enigma of Reach Inc. Only he isn’t as much of an enigma as we were led to believe in previous instalments. A real man with depth and layers, onion comes to mind when experiencing the facets of Dylan’s personal trauma and heartache.
‘…she was incorrect about my ability to restrain myself. I was a beast without a leash. I had no will but to devour her.’
Sweet Liars timeline runs concurrently with the Dirty Duet, which if you had the privilege of reading, featured Audrey’s sister Sabrina. One who tried to forget her coloured predilections, whilst the other runs towards them with open arms and an eager look in her eyes.
‘I’d expected banging and dirty talk, sneaking away to meet up for something sordid and naughty. That wasn’t what this had turned out to be at all. This was heartfelt conversations and seeing a magnificent man trying his best with his son. This was human and sweet and real, and I’d be lying to myself to say it didn’t change everything.’
For Dylan, things aren’t as black and white as they are for Audrey. She’s just starting her life and he is in a position where he feels he’s peaked and is heading downhill.
‘I was a dirty old man in contrast. A man with scars worn on my aging skin and wounds that ran deeper, unseen by the naked eye. A man who knew better than to believe that sex with a woman like Audrey could ever be casual.
A man who could still crawl to shore if he tried, but didn’t have the willpower to do anything except sink.’
Several crossover scenes unfold whilst we follow Dylan and Audrey through their story. Both Donovan and Sabrina are on the page. Which of course makes sense, there is no Audrey without her big sister and Donovan is very much the image of Reach Inc., even if he does most of his puppeteering from the background. Audrey is as tempting to Dylan as chocolate cake is to me. She knows what she wants and is willing to play him at his own game to get him there. Nothing wrong with a little side bet about it after all. Having one’s world peeled open with new experiences is as addictive as any illegal drug.
Sweet Liar is a short read that can be read in one sitting. Encompassing all the very best of this author’s abilities, always leaving you craving more. Ms. Paige has a knack for creating strong characters; especially of the female persuasion. Soft but strong. Unsure but tough. Stories where men are not closed off Neanderthals but are real honest human beings. The end of this book was left with ample uncertainty for the future, and I for one cannot wait to see how the follow-up goes. Thank you wonderful author for another dose of heavy heat with meaningful content and well-formed characters. Fantastic!!!

With over 2.4 million books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. Her international success started with her very first series, the Fixed Trilogy, which, alone, has sold over 1 million copies, and earned her the coveted #1 spot on Amazon’s bestseller list in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia, simultaneously. This title also was named in People magazine as one of the top 10 most downloaded books of 2014. She’s also been #1 over all books at the Apple Book Store with more than one title in more than one country. She’s published both independently and with MacMillan’s St. Martin’s Press and Griffin imprints as well as many other publishers around the world including Harper Collins in Germany and Hachette/Little Brown in the U.K. With her edgy, trope-flipped stories of smart women and strong men, she’s managed to secure herself among today’s romance royalty.
Paige has a Bachelor’s degree in Musical Theater and a Masters of Business Administration with a Marketing emphasis, and she credits her writing success to what she learned from both programs, though she’s also an avid learner, constantly trying to challenge her mind with new and exciting ideas and concepts. While she loves psychological thrillers and witty philosophical books and entertainment, she is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
