Book and Audio Review: Lies by Kylie Scott


Kylie Scott
Narrator: Andi Arndt
Publication: Kylie Scott (July 21, 2019)
Length: 242 p.; 6 hours and 22 minutes

Description: Betty Dawsey knows that breaking things off with Thom Lange is for the best. He’s nice, but boring, and their relationship has lost its spark. But steady and predictable Thom, suddenly doesn’t seem so steady and predictable when their condo explodes and she’s kidnapped by a couple of crazies claiming that Thom isn’t who he says he is.

Thom is having a hellish week. Not only is he hunting a double agent, but his fiancé dumped him, and thanks to his undercover life, she’s been kidnapped.

Turns out Thom is Operative Thom and he’s got more than a few secrets to share with Betty if he’s going to keep her alive. With both their lives on the line, their lackluster connection is suddenly replaced by an intense one. But in his line of work, feelings aren’t wanted or desired. Because feelings can be a lethal distraction.

My Thoughts: Betty Dawsey is moving out of the condo she shared with Thom because she doesn't feel their relationship is working. He doesn't prioritize time with her and he's sort of boring. but then the condo explodes, she's kidnapped and her picture of Thom changes drastically.

Thom has been living a double life. He's an operative for a secret organization when he isn't acting as Betty's mild-mannered fiancé. But rescuing her from her kidnappers forces him to let Betty into his secret life. This really isn't a good time. Someone is hunting and killing the operatives in his organization and it looks like there is a traitor in their ranks.

Betty and Thom go on the run both to keep Betty safe and for Thom to find the traitors. Along the way, Betty gets a good look at the real Thom and discovers that he is not at all boring. In fact, she falls in love with him -- after she gets over the fact that he's been lying to her for the whole of their relationship.

The story had a nice helping or romance and was rather spicy. The suspense part of the story was also fast-paced and exciting. The narrator did a good job with the voices and the pacing of the story.

Favorite Quote:
"Good job--you just mildly inconvenienced the enemy. Try again and actually hit him this time."

"You're not being very supportive."
