#1 Lie by T Gephart

Working in Hollywood meant Jessica Dawson was used to lying. As an assistant to one of the biggest agents in town, biting her tongue and spewing out sugarcoated untruths were an almost daily occurrence. But fabricating alternate realities never spilled into her personal life, until three months ago when she told the biggest lie of all.

While her dear gran lay on her deathbed, Jessica mentioned she’d met her soul mate. It had been Gran’s last wish to see all her grandkids settled down before she went to see Jesus. And as the only one still single, Jessica didn’t have the heart to disappoint her.

No one expected Gran to make a miraculous recovery.

Now, Gran was expecting to meet Jessica’s perfect man at her cousin’s wedding, which meant she needed to find a perfect man fast. Hiring a professional was the only solution.

Enter Dave Larsson, younger brother to one of Hollywood’s elite.

Sexy, funny and just as smoldering hot as his super-famous sibling—he had talent and charm to spare. But most importantly, he was affordable and available.

All she needed to do was haul Dave home, have him meet Gran and the family, then shortly after the wedding, “break up” with him.

It was either that, or admit to her #1 Lie.

Only thing she didn’t plan on was the bigger lie she would need to tell herself when it was time to let him go.

About the Author

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia. With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of "plan" has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She'd tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn't expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy. When she isn't filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she's living her own reality show in the 'burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley. She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.

I love a good fake romance and this one delivers on all fronts! T. Gephart gave us humor, heart, and heat - 3 of my favorite things in romance. Jess and Dave are so cute together and I just loved Gran. While the story was a tad bit predictable (which I'm not at all upset about - that tends to be the case with this particular trope) it was such an enjoyable and entertaining journey to HEA and I really need to go back and read the other books in the series! 3.5 out of 5 wine glasses.

I haven't read this series before but this was definitely a good one! Yes it's book 4 but each is a standalone with recurring characters. And every book seems to be for a different couple. I truly loved that yes even though Jess is from the south - Shreveport to be exact, she still has a foul mouth and doesn't let her boss Jeremy get away with anything. Or any of the people he manages. Because even though she works in Tinseltown and she sees Hollywood heartthrobs all the time, she's not about to let them take advantage of her. She is a delightful conundrum (can't remember where I've heard that exact phrase but it's definitely not one of my creation) because she's a true southern girl but still wants to be away from Shreveport and her family, even though she loves them to pieces. And that she might lie to her grandma but it's truly for a good reason. Definitely looking for books 1-3 now because I need to know more about this series and family!

Jessica would never have imagined how a lie to bring her grandmother peace when she was expected to pass away would come back and bite her. She is very happy that her grandmother make a full recovery but now she either needs to bring her “soulmate” to a family wedding or come clean about her lie. Dave is one of her boss’s clients and since he is an actor he seems like the perfect choice to be her pretend boyfriend and he can multitask by working on his acting skills as well but first she needs to convince him. They work out an arrangement where they will escort each other to an event that they must attend which is the solution to both their problems. What could possibly go wrong? Dave and Jessica are perfect together as their chemistry is hot, their banter humorous and they just fit. Jessica is the perfect mix of sass and sensitive while Dave is everything you could ask for in a boyfriend and more. Once I finished the book my only thought was that I had been missing out on not reading anything by this author earlier. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

#1 Lie by T. Gephart is the fourth book in the #1 Series. You can read it as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading the other books that come before this! They are all fantastic reads that you won't be able to put down! The author's stories and words just keep on getting better and better! I found myself slowing down my reading process due to the fact I never wanted this to end! #1 Lie might be my new favorite from the series!! Jess and Dave's relationship complimented each other perfectly. Add in some laughter and hotness and you have the perfect summer read! Also, where do I find my own Dave Larsson?? And I cannot stress enough how much I appreciate a STRONG female lead! You'll definitely find that in Jessica Dawson! If you love rom-coms, you won't find a better one than this! I am looking forward to what is next from this author!!!

Jessica Dawson committed the ultimate sin. She lied to her dear sweet old Granny on her deathbed. You see, Jessica was the last of the grandkids who was not married or had a significant other. All her granny wanted was for Jessica to find a nice man who would love her unconditionally. Wanting to make her gran happy before she took her last breath, Jess lied through her teeth about the wonderful man she was dating and the whirlwind relationship they had. Who knew her gran would do a complete three sixty and recover. Guess Jesus needed gran to be around for just a while longer. Jess, well, she was surely going to hell for lying. To top it all off, now her gran and the rest of her family want to meet Jess’ new boyfriend while she attends her cousins wedding back home in Louisiana. What is a girl to do in a situation like this? Obviously NOT tell her family she was a liar. That would be a total disaster. Jess decides to hire a fake boyfriend, one who is a great actor and pull off the part. Who better to ask than a real actor, Dave Larsson. They got along well and Dave was always nice to her, not like some actors she worked with as an assistant to one of the top agents in town. Plus dave was super hot and would make the perfect arm candy. It’s not like she ever thought of licking said arm candy. Okay maybe she had! So what?! This was going to be strictly professional. What could possibly go wrong? Jessica is such a fantastic heroine. She is smart, witty, and so full of life and laughter. She loves her family dearly and does not want to disappoint them which leads her to her current predicament asking Dave to be her fake boyfriend for a family wedding. You just can’t help loving Jessica right from the start. She is such a disaster, but in a good way..mostly poking fun at herself and the situations she gets herself into. As much as she didn’t want to admit how much she likes Dave, she has a hard time trying to keep their little set up professional. Dave on the other hand is just swoon worthy. The perfect book boyfriend any woman would want. He is down to earth and a straight up nice guy for being an actor. He has family values and is genuinely a great guy. The connection between Jessica and Dave is off the charts, hot and steamy. They compliment each other in so many ways which makes them even more perfect for each other. Jessica’s family is boisterous and full of Southern charm and it was really nice to see how well Dave fit right in with her family. OMG! Granny Shelly was a riot. At 80 something yrs old she was not afraid to speak her mind or ask to see some skin…Dave’s naked chest that is! The best scene ever! I loved Jessica’s family and want them as my family. I am wondering if I could be adopted! #1 Lie by T. Gephart is a laugh out loud Rom-Com that will leave you in stitches. The one liners thrown around on almost every single page had my dying! I could not stop myself from reading all the way through in one sitting. I pretty much ignored everyone for a few hours because I could not put this book down. The story was engaging with some of the best characters in any book I have ever read. #1 Lie is definitely a five plus star read! Although, this is my first read by T. Gephart, it certainly will not be my last.

****4 STARS**** ****ARC Received for Honest Review**** This was my very first T. Gephart read, and she did me right, she will be in my TBR rotation. If you don’t like a great Rom-Com, you have no sense of humor, you don’t like some crazy antics and you don’t like sexiness mixed in, than this book is not for you and we can never be friends….IJS. The whole premise of Jessica telling her dying grandma about her fictitious boyfriend on her death bed, only to have said grandma not kick the bucket. Now, Jessica must make this awesome boyfriend appear, so let the lying continue….enter the paid boyfriend, a super hot, and completely amazing brother to a Hollywood star. Can they both walk away unscathed? Read to find out, you will not be disappointed.-Review by Catherine(Catty)

#1 Lie is so much fun! The story is funny and sexy but also goes deeper with a storyline that will tie your emotions up into knots! When she thought her grandmother was dying, Jessica Dawson tells one small fib. But after Gran pulls through that small fabrication leads to her hiring actor Dave Larsson to play her boyfriend at a family wedding. “I should probably look into some kind of meetings for Dishonesty Anonymous; the lies I’d told recently far outweighing the truth.” Super sweet and sexy Dave really turns the heat up and Jessica finds that he might be bigger than the part she hired him to play. “His mouth was magic, able to dissolve panic and educe calmness with a single press of his lips. Like kryptonite but in reverse. Maybe we should do that again? Purely for research purposes. Science was important and I’d happily give my lips up for the cause. That I might enjoy it, well . . . that was just a bonus.” Jessica is such a sassy, quirky heroine, she completely stole my heart. I loved the fun and flirty banter throughout! #1 Lie is part of the #1 series but they can all be read as standalones. -5 Stars!!-

Such a funny read! T. Gephart is a new author to me but I’m so happy to have another author on my TBR list! The crazy antics in this story had me smiling, giggling, and even laughing out loud. One small lie meant to appease her dying grandma, leads to a paid boyfriend who happens to be an aspiring Hollywood star to save face at a family wedding. Jess is smart, headstrong, and knows exactly what she wants. Dave was sweet, kind, hot, and everything you want in a great book boyfriend. Their slow burn romance was just right. It wasn’t too slow that I was bored or waiting for something else to happen. The pace of this story, told in 1st person, was great. Dual POVs have become my preference but I really enjoyed this one because of the descriptions. The dialogue and actions described were enough to connect well with both characters. Don’t look further for a fun, hilarious, beach read with enough fire and emotion to connect to and keep your attention.

Her heart was in the right place, but she must have lost her mind. #1 Lie is a #1 MUST HAVE! Gephart turns heartache into laughter and love, in an over the top, hard to resist sort of way. With what she believed to be a little white lie Jess sealed her fate. When the circumstances change Jess is in for a rude awakening and just maybe the love of a lifetime. Get ready to fall in love with a little white lie and an ENCHANTING romance.
