I adored Jacob in this book. He's unapologetic about who he is... a liar and a thief and Simon is just the man to coax / bully him into being a better person. Whether or not that actually happens...that's a big part of the story. I loved the back and forth of their relationship and the intrigue because I was kept guessing as to what the hell was going on and who was up to what.
If you like a suspenseful romance or a romantic thriller, this is the book for you. Crafted by a master storyteller, Liar, Liar will keep you entertained...and on your seat... from hours of delightful reading.
It's a fast pace ride to solve the murder and who was behind the theft. It's a little confusing but you can keep up.
I would have liked to see more care and concern between Jake and Simon but overall, I enjoyed it
MEMBER OF THE PARANORMAL ROMANCE REVIEW TEAM
Jacob Archer works for a cleaning company whose client is Syntech a huge eco-engineering firm. Jacob has worked for the cleaning company for a few months waiting until he was finally given the CEO’s floor. Devon Porter is the CEO and Jacob is definitely not a janitor. His real job is industrial espionage and his current job is getting into Porter’s computer and copying all of Syntech’s files.
Jacob is successful as usual—except this time he is caught leaving by Porter’s brother-in-law Simon Ramsey the Chief of Security and Jacob’s lover. When Simon sees Jacob and realizes what he is doing, he can’t get over the sense of total betrayal and being used by a man he cared for. Jacob manages to get himself locked into a janitor’s closet with Simon kicking, banging and cursing on the other side of the door. It will take all of Jacob’s expertise to get himself out of this jam and he does it quite creatively. I won’t reveal how he got out but it is quite a surprise.
Jacob has what he was hired for and when he meets Harry Clayton, the man who hired him, things take a turn for the worse. Jacob and Harry are kidnapped and Harry winds up dead. With just enough time to get away Jacob calls Simon for help and Simon arrives just in time to save him. Jacob is in bad shape when Simon brings him home having suffered a serious beating, broken ribs and the rest of his body turning a beautiful shade of purple. The kidnappers wanted the information that Jacob had stolen but Jacob managed to get away with save the info.
Now Jacob and Simon have to find out what is going on, who killed Harry, and why is the information so important. They are up against trained killers who have no problem getting rid of anyone who gets in their way. In spite of his betrayal, Simon can’t keep his hands off Jacob even though he knows that there is no chance for a relationship with him. For Jacob lying is second nature and it is hard to know when and if he is telling the truth.
Jacob is framed for Harry’s murder, Devon is blamed by his Board of Directors for what is going on, and Simon is trying to stay one step ahead of a bullet. The story was very good and there were surprises, betrayals and sex. We do find out what is going on and Simon is falling in love with Jacob. Even if Jacob confessed to loving Simon, could he be believed? I loved Simon, but not so much Jacob. It is hard to love a character who is so blatantly a liar and who proudly admits to it.
Jacob is a computer hacker hired to retrieve some information from the company owned by Devon. Simon is Devon's brother-in-law (Simon's sister Becca, now deceased, was married to Devon), an ex-Marine, and head of Devon's security team. The book starts off with Jacob being caught by Simon, as he's leaving, from uploading the information. He's gets away and that's the end of the relationship between Jacob and Simon. Jacob goes to meet Harry, the man who paid him to steal the information, and they both end up running for their lives. Harry doesn't make it out alive. Jacob is badly beaten and ends up calling Simon for help. So while Simon and Jacob are trying to find out who killed Harry and is trying to kill Jacob, Jacob is either holding back info or outright lying to Simon. They're on the run a lot. Both get hurt more. They can't stop the attraction between them and end up back in bed with each other. The only thing Jacob didn't lie about is his feelings for Simon, which he tries like Hell to prevent. Eventually the bad guys are unmasked and I have to admit I picked the initiating bad guy out from the beginning. The take over bad guys weren't a surprise, just a oh, ok for me. Sorry for the vagueness, trying not to let out a spoiler.
This is a well written book. I only spotted one sentence that was incomplete. At the 95% mark on my kindle a sentence read "He spat out a curse and stitched gunfire across the front of the." It just ended and stitched gunfire is an odd description. I've never heard it or read it before and don't exactly know what it's describing.
Lastly the descriptions of Devon were inconsistent. In the beginning he's described as having a temper and he was violent in his teens yet towards the end of the book Simon states he's too forgiving. Just a couple examples.
All in all an enjoyable read that once started demanded I finish. So I would definitely recommend it to others.
An ARC was received for an honest review.
