Overview

Emie Jaramillo learned long ago that brains count more than beauty, and that’s just fine with her. She doesn’t want, nor does she need, a relationship. When her prestigious academic career earns her an invitation to appear on a national talk show, she eagerly looks forward to discussing her genetics work. Little does she know that the episode is really entitled “Those bookworm looks have to go!” Worse yet, gorgeous makeup artist Gia Mendez—a woman around whom Emie stupidly lowers her guard—was in on the humiliating prank.

The fiasco just convinces Emie of what she knew all along: relationships are for other people, and women like Gia don’t belong anywhere near her world. But Gia’s about to make it up to Emie, by convincing her she has not only brains, but beauty...and she’s the only woman Gia wants in her life.

Meet the Author

Lea Santos has been concocting tall tales since she was a child, according to her mother. Usually these had to do with where she was, who she was with, and whether or not she’d finished her math homework (which she hadn’t). When it came time to pick a career, Lea waffled, then dabbled in everything from guiding tours in Europe, to police work, to bookkeeping for an exotic bird and reptile company—probably not the best choice, since (1) she never did finish that math, and (2) the Komodo dragons freaked her out. (A lot.) She eventually decided to go with her strengths and continue spinning wild stories, except this time, she’d turn them into whole books and call it a career. She rarely lies anymore about where she’s been or who she was with...

    Quick light read

    Little White Lie is from the Matinee imprint of Bold Strokes Books. That means it is meant to be straight forward romance and a quick read.

    Emie Jaramillo is a respected scientist working on developing cloning and she assumes that is why she has been invited to speak on a television show. Instead, she finds that she has been set up by someone she knows and it turns into a humiliating experience. Gia Mendez is the make-up woman on the show and realizes that Emie does not understand what is going to happen, but she does not warn her either. Afterward, Gia chases Emie back to Denver to both apologize and get to know her better. Emie can only think about revenge. She convinces Gia to help her do a make-over so that she can strike back at her rival. Gia agrees because she thinks she can make Emie realize instead how beautiful she is and that they could have a future together. Both women need to overcome their insecurities before they can hope to have a relationship.

    This book is good for what it is meant to be. This is intended for reading on the beach or in the afternoon or whenever there is some free time. It is not intended to be heavy on plot or character development. It follows the usual pattern for a romance and has the required happy ending. Anyone who has read many romance novels will know where this story is headed before the first chapter is finished.

    Little White Lie is short and easy to read. It is fine for just relaxing for a little while.
