New Release Review: Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren ♥

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

When three college besties meet three hot guys in Vegas, anything can—and does—happen. Book Four in the New York Times Wild Seasons series that began with Sweet Filthy Boy (the Romantic Times book of the year that Sylvia Day called “a sexy, sweet treasure of a story”), Dirty Rowdy Thing, and Dark Wild Night.
For two people ambivalent about dating and love, they sure get naked around each other an awful lot . .
London Hughes is very content to surf daily, tend bar, hang out with her group of friends, and slowly orient herself in the years after college. Everything’s going great and according to the non-plan.
But when a wave knocks her for a loop one morning, then Luke Sutter’s flirtatious smile knocks her for another that evening, she veers slightly off course…and into his path. Sure, he’s a total player, but the Why not—it’s only one night is a persistent voice in her ear.
For his part, Luke’s been on hookup autopilot for so long that he rarely ever pauses to consider what he’s doing. But after an amazing time with London, he realizes that he hasn’t been moving on from a devastating heartbreak so much as he’s been drifting to wherever—and whomever—the current takes him. With London he wants more.
Every relationship involves two people…plus their pasts. And as much as she enjoys her fling with Luke, when London learns about his past—more specifically, who’s in it—everything becomes the brand of complicated she strives to avoid. It’s up to Luke then to change some things in order to try and ensure he’s not something she’ll outright avoid as well.

My Review
I honestly wish I could give this book more than five stars. All the stars, actually. Luke & London's story was the perfect way to end the Wild Seasons series. London made me laugh so often and I loved her carefree attitude. She was completely against falling in love and it was so interesting watching her fight her physical attraction until it wasn't just physical attraction anymore. Luke was very different from what I expected- which was, you know, a bit of a d-bag with women always hanging all over him. However, I really freaking LOVED him. He was actually hilarious and awfully weird (I mean...who actually only eats one pop tart and leaves the other one for later?.....Luke.) He was so flirty and sweet; which honestly just makes it impossible for anyone to not fall in love with Luke Sutter, he had me in the palm of his hand pretty much as soon as I started reading. The chemistry and sexual tension between Luke and London was off the charts and literally made me blush from time to time. Then there were times were it was all so sweet and just...perfect.

"There are so many ways to love this girl; good God, let me find each and every one of them."

Christina Lauren's writing style is so descriptive and even eye opening. Some of my favorite quotes ever are from Christina Lauren's books. There is just something about these books that pull you in and teach you some kind of life lesson but they never let you go. I always seem to find a bit of myself within these characters and it's such an amazing feeling reading about characters that remind me so much of myself and yet inspire me to let go of my inhibitions and let life take me where it's suppose to. This is just one of those authors that you can't miss. From the very first moment you pick up a Christina Lauren book- you're hooked, line and sinker....

"Do we ever see the big things coming, though? A predictable life never changed anyone."

Although it is so bittersweet to watch this series come to it's end, Wicked Sexy Liar was the perfect way to end Wild Seasons with a bang. I got lost between the pages of this book and found myself not caring if I ever got out. It was cute, humorous, sexy and probably as fluffy and it get's for these two authors. I cannot wait to see what else they come up with this year.
