From Publishers Weekly
“Van Dyken’s contemporary romance will win fans and accolades with an adorable heroine, a roguish hero, and plenty of snappy banter. Avery Black, fresh out of college and living on her own, has been downsized out of her job. If she’s going to keep the lights on in her modest downtown-Seattle apartment, she desperately needs a regular paycheck. A paid internship may not be ideal, but the money means she won’t have to move back in with her parents. It seems an easy enough assignment until she meets her boss and finds out what a small world it is. Lucas Thorn, the VP of marketing and research for whom she’ll be working, is also a cad, a cheater, and the man who left her sister at the altar, breaking the hearts of the entire Black family. Naturally, they hit it off. Told in the alternating voices of Avery and Lucas, Van Dyken’s diverting cat-and-mouse matchup is pure starry-eyed escapist fun.”
“The first book in the Curious Liaisons series is the perfect light-and-fluffy read to enjoy while you’re curled up with hot cocoa and a warm blanket. The characters are vivid and fun to read.” —RT Book Reviews

I have read all of Rachel Van Dyken's books and I feel like her characters are slowly stealing little bits of my heart with each new romance. I have loved them all on one level or another. But Lucas and Avery took a huge chunk. Holy crap were they awesome.
I adored how Lucas and Avery circled one another. The chemistry and lust between them isn't just simmering - creating intense sexual chemistry Hell, no. They are boiling over and it's captivating. I found myself devouring page after page - consumed by their budding relationship.
Beyond being completely smitten by this duo, I don't think I've ever laughed so hard as I did while reading Cheater. Their storyline was over the top fun and entertaining. All of the characters were charming as hell. It was just an incredible book.
If you only buy one book this week it needs to be Cheater. Which is saying something because there are some pretty freaking amazing books being released this week.
Flash forward to the present and Lucas Thorn (cause he insist on being called Lucas Thorn) is now a VP and a real “ladies man”, enjoying a different woman every day. Avery is now getting a job as a paid intern for the VP of a company. Guess who that VP is.
The story goes forward with Lucas and Avery fighting a love/hate war. Their banter is witty and funny. I loved the scene where they go to dinner with Lucas’ parents. It is reminiscent of every family gathering that I have ever been too. Rachel did a great job (again) writing characters that are relatable and funny. It was a great story and the only thing that could make it better would have been a visit from Grandma Nadine.
I really enjoyed reading Cheater. It was a fun story and I am looking forward to another installment to find out what happens with Thatch and Austin.
For those of you triggered by cheating, I'd say, suck it up and give it a try anyway, because it's not quite what you're thinking. Happy reading!
Sure, the title, the main theme of the book set a certain mood. You are prepared to see an arrogant, heartless guy who goes through women like coffee cups from his favorite Starbucks. But... I didn't buy it. Just picking up on his thoughts, the way he treated women, didn't give me an image of a "cheater".
And not to be difficult or anything, but those women did agree with the arrangement he offered. He didn't lie to them, didn't hide the other relationship. All parties were well aware of what was happening. And you see, that's not exactly cheating.
Doesn't mean I agree with Lucas's ways, but if that's what had helped him to dull the ache in his heart, than who am I to judge as a reader?
But his world is thrown upside down once Avery storms back into his life.
I like her. She's a little impulsive, and sometimes her actions and thoughts seem too much, a little staged, but she's fun.
I'm a big sucker for an easy banter between main characters - when the conversation flows and feels so realistic, I'm the happiest reader in the world.
There is so much chemistry between Avery and Lucas, i fell in love with the couple almost immediately.
It's was a good and fast read for me, and I'm looking forward to discovering author's other titles.
