Overview

When the government needs a body double for a covert operation, they hire shape-shifter Charley Randall. For two centuries, she's played every part from foreign dignitary to office drone. The role she wants most, though, is one she's denied herself three times already.

FBI Agent Wyatt Moreland believes Charley's photographic memory is the key to his latest assignment. He's oblivious to the true extent of her abilities, but he can't deny the sense of déjà vu at their introduction.

Unlike Wyatt, Charley knows this isn't their first meeting.

It's their fourth.

The girl he vowed to love, sixteen years before, stands in front of him in her true form — one he'll never recognize.

With each reconnection, Charley loves him more though she realizes this is her last chance to explain. Only absolute truth can bring them happiness, but can Wyatt forgive her deceptions? Or will lies tear them apart forever?

Meet the Author

Aimee is a romantic at heart and a southern transplant with a bit of the accent (but not a whole bunch). She's married to her high school sweetheart, and with him, she's produced three native North Carolinians, two of whom share the same DNA.

With an MBA and a degree in Applied Mathematics, there's absolutely no reason she should be writing romance novels. Then again, she shouldn't need a calculator to add two numbers, either ... but she does.

    Storyline and characters will hook you from page one!

    WOW! This was an awesome story, read it cover to cover in ONE sitting because I could NOT put it down! The main characters, Charley and Wyatt, are fabulous. I can visualize them in my head and feel like I know them personally. The supporting characters are amazing too. James, Lily, Cael and even Stuart each have their own story lines that intertwine beautifully with the main characters. I do hope we hear more from them soon. (Hint, Hint!) I read a lot of paranormal romances and haven't seen anything quite like this. I love that this is a slightly new twist on shape shifting. Wow- something new, imagine that! Definitely worth the read, you won't be disappointed!

    Fantastic read

    If you enjoy paranormal romance, shape-shifters and secret government ops, you'll love Aimee Laine's Little White Lies. Told in the third-person, Little White Lies is about the "mimic" Charley Randall and her long-time love interest Wyatt Moreland. Mimics are true shape-shifters: they can take the shape of any person (and sometimes animal, depending on the Mimic) they see. Charley Randall has been shifting for over 200 years, using her talents and skill to aide in government operations, like combating child trafficking. She's made quite a name for herself and is generally sought-after.

    Little White Lies begins at a heart-stopping pace, with a race to beat the clock up a mountain (yes, UP a mountain). It's immediately intriguing and captivating and held me from the first page. Charley is completely my kind of protagonist: sassy, independent, loving. Wyatt is masculine, smart and caring (who likes dumb characters anyway?). And Laine also gives us beautifully fleshed-out secondary characters whom you want to know more about: James, Lily, Cael, Maggie... I really want to know the story behind James!

    There were a couple of things I was unsure about that disrupted the flow of the story a little for me. In one instance, Wyatt's mother has a different last name than he does, but I don't recall that being explained in previous pages. You also have to wait through about 50% Little White Lies to get details on mimics and their shifting abilities and limitations. Because of this, throughout the first half of the novel, I was left with a lot of questions and somewhat confused. However the story is told well enough that you want to keep reading it regardless of that.

    Overall, if you enjoy paranormal romance and shape-shifters, you will really like this book. It's enjoyable, keeps a fast-pace and I definitely recommend it!

    A must read for paranormal romance lovers!

    Anyone who knows me understands that I care a lot less about the females of a novel (even if they're the MC) than I do about the males. If I can't connect with the main male, then you've already lost me. Did Little White Lies deliver on this? Oh, you betcha! Not only did I find myself rooting for Wyatt, but also had an enormous soft spot for a secondary male character (of course, those secondary male characters are always helpful for drawing the readers in so they don't get peeved when the main guy falls in love and lives happily ever after, and leaves the reader with no hope of the shebang they have going on in their head, which oddly doesn't have the female MC in the vicinity . and I'm rambling). Back to business: Wyatt is just lovable, yet strong, and tender, yet dominant-just the right dose of masculine in touch with his caring side. Charley plays a powerful role for the female MC, and it's through her instinct to take the lead that we see Wyatt's character in full force in how he deals with her and whatever situation they're thrown into. From the opening page, this has tension, excitement, and enough of a fast pace to drag your arse along on Charley's ride, and the story in its entirety deals with adventure, fear, emotions running high, love, soul mates, uncertainty & surety . well, I think that's enough to go on, otherwise I'll end up giving you all spoilers, and we don't want that. I do have one last thing to say, though: Read it. Love it. And expect to yearn for more from this author.

    My Review:
    And I thought I loved Aimee Laine's work before?!? Little White Lies blew me away!!! You might know from my review of Hide and Seek, that Aimee Laine's gift for verbalizing beautiful romance leaves me speechless ... and breathless!!! The love she is able to describe is pure fairy-tale and sweeps you off your feet.

    Her leading ladies are the consummate balance of tough yet tender, confident yet unsure, world-wise yet unjaded. I love Charley. Loyal and brave, she's the perfect protagonist. Wyatt is truly melt-worthy; he's heroic, smart and honorable. The entire book is populated with amazing, well-developed protagonists. You care about the whole cast, not merely the mcs, and I suspect each of these players to have the spot light in future installments.

    The world building is perfect. I love the creativity that has gone into developing these human shape shifters called Mimics. The Mimic history and personal histories of the characters were expertly unfolded throughout the book adding the the mystery and suspense. Instead of a big information dump early in the book, details are slowly woven into the story, developing the readers understanding throughout.

    Little White Lies is crazy-cram-packed with action, suspense and mystery. When there's people out there who can completely change themselves into another person, who can you trust? I was sure everyone was really a bad guy in disguise. I was a little frustrated that our group of Mimics weren't near as concerned as I was about this. I felt overall the antagonists and their motives could have been better developed (especially a certain guy). Nonetheless, I was satisfied with the conclusion as it played out.

    Amazing story! Not just for paranormal fans! :D

    I loved the idea of this story, and once I started reading, I loved it even more! Charley was an amazing character, and I loved seeing things from her perspective! She was a fantastic narrator, and so fierce! The narration also shifts around to Wyatt frequently, and even to another character named Stuart at one point, and I have to say that loved that it shifted to Stuart, it made that part of the book super mysterious! I also loved Wyatt's parts. ;)

    When I read the blurb for this story I thought of Mystique from X-men, and even while reading, the comparison didn't really leave my head. I loved that. I'm a sucker for the X-Men. I've never read the comics, but I used to watch the TV show, play some of the video games based off of them, and I've watched all of the newer movies that have been made. So, I'm definitely a fan, and I loved that this story reminded me of that.

    The characters were awesome in Little White Lies, and I loved the backstory for Charley, and the other Mimics as they called themselves. I'm not going to go too into detail because I think it's more interesting to learn about them yourselves, so I'll leave that to you. ;) Oh and I just have to mention Wyatt, I LOVED Wyatt! He was sexy. ;) I loved him alone, and even more when he was with Charley. ;)

    Another interesting thing about Little White Lies was how it was organized. The book is split up between three different times where Charley has 'encountered' Wyatt, and I honestly loved that. I didn't expect that at first, but I thought it was a fantastic way to tell this story.

    There are sex scenes in this book, just so everyone knows, and I guess this is my little content warning part of the review. ;) Honestly though, I found the way that the sex scenes were done to be very subtle and while you knew what was happening nothing was overly descriptive. It was more about the emotional connection than the act itself, so I'm telling you now that it has sex scenes, but they aren't raunchy ones. :)

    Since I've already professed my love for this book, I'm guessing I don't need to say that I loved it again (even though I just did :P), but I will say that this book is full of action, it's embedded with mystery, and it's emotional all the way through. I definitely recommend this book to others. It was a fantastic story, and I think that fans of paranormal (and even fans of contemporary) will thoroughly enjoy it, it's versatile like that. ;) Aimee Laine has written an amazing story, and I encourage you to get yourself a copy as soon as possible. :D

    ***I received an ebook from the publisher for an honest review.

    Great Read!

    This was my first "paranormal romance". I had to get used to the shape-shifter idea in the first few pages, but then their personalities emerged and I really loved getting to know each one. This book has a good blend of intrigue and romance. Good read!

    Great paranormal romance read

    I have never heard of shape shifters before, but I'd love to be one. The characters in this book have led very interesting lives. The tension between Charley and Wyatt was very intense and I couldn't wait to see how their romance ended. I would love to see more from these characters.
