Overview

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.

AudioBook Review: Overall: Stars 4 Narration 5 Story 4 London is a bartender – a bit of a tough girl she’s solidly aware of who she is and what she will and won’t tolerate. With a solid group of friends from college, the ability to surf almost whenever she wants, and no lack of entertainment, a ‘relationship’ isn’t in the cards for her right now, and that’s just not a problem. But, one night is not a relationship, she’s an adult able to make her own choices and the one night rule comes with no harm no foul. And Luke, considering the number of women wanting a second night is nothing to sneeze at. Luke is a card-carrying player with a string of women – most lasting no longer than the nearest sunrise. He finds London intriguing, and of course he’s ready for one night. But, when that one night has him thinking that he wants more ….that’s completely unheard of from him. But, much to his surprise, unlike the other women he knows, London isn’t interested in more… These two are adorable together. The hoops that Luke jumps through to get London to see that he cares and wants more. It’s a first for him, not since his first serious girlfriend has he wanted more. And that brings up another problem: London and his first girlfriend Mia are friends – and that doesn’t sit well with London. It’s been a while, but does he still care? Sure, he says he’s all in and has created several pet names to call her, almost daily, and their conversations are wonderful, always leading to more ‘convincing of the naked version”. And yes, Luke does have a Ph.D., in convincing. Oh these two are just precious! One of the better NA series that I’ve read / listened to over the past while. Moments that move seamlessly between sexy and snarky to raunchy in all the best ways, with plenty of emotion and a solid set of friendships that highlight every moment. Making the series even better in my opinion is the solid narrative performances by Deacon Lee and Olivia Song. They are cast with perfection, providing voices that sound and feel completely at home in the characters they portray with pitch, tone and sound of a group of 20-somethings. Emotional nuances, comedic timing and even pauses are placed with precision as the conversations did feel as if you are a fly on the wall listening, the interior moments where doubts creep in have the perfect pacing and pitch to bring it all to life. With each story in this series, the narration manages to fit both characters and story, adding to the experience in ways that enhance the experience. I’m a fan of this series from this author duo, and I do believe that it is current and honest in the approach and the way the friendships and the romantic entanglements are portrayed. If you enjoy New Adult stories – that mix heart, humor and heat, this is the series for you. I received an audiobook copy of the title from Simon and Schuster for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I loved this story because of the simplicity. Not all that back and forth drama. Sometimes meeting and being with someone is easy, with just a few twists and turns.

Despite not being as attached to London or Luke as I was to the entire rest of the cast, I still enjoyed their story significantly more than I enjoyed the previous three books. Why? Because both characters felt like fully realized human beings whose struggles with being together made complete sense. There was no infuriating misdirection here, or problems that could've been solved with a little (or a lot) of communication. Sexy times and humor and beautiful scenery aside, this was a story about two people deciding whether to shed the unpleasantness of their pasts and embrace a bright new future together. It was just as fulfilling to watch London and Luke work for their happily-ever-after as it was to see them earn it.

Wicked Sexy Liar is book four in the Wild Seasons series. I'm addicted to this series, it has just the right amount of angst mixed in with the romance. Each book in the series has a different set of leading characters, but the ones in the previous installments make appearances since it's a group of friends. I love that it's done this way because it just builds the world so well. London Hughes is a surfer by day and bartender by night. Her number one rule is not to date the customers. Of course, her rule didn't include hooking up with the playboy (Luke Sutter) that intrigues her at the bar. She never does that sort of thing but can't seem to help her attraction to him. That attraction goes both ways though and Luke Sutter can't seem to stop thinking about London. She's different from anyone he's met before and even a playboy can change his tune. This is the part that intrigued me though, you can tell Luke wants something more serious but London has commitment issues and wants nothing to do with it. The tables are turned and Luke has to figure out how to get her to trust him if they want their relationship to go anywhere. Toss in that he is London's friend's ex-boyfriend (she didn't know that originally) and you have yourself one interesting story. Wicked Sexy Liar is an addicting read. This series grabbed me originally because it was a group of three girl friends and three guy friends that met in Las Vegas and wound up getting married to one another. Each book paired off the couples and told their story, so I was wondering who would wind up in book four. London is Lola's (book 3) roommate so we have seen her in the books before. I'm glad we got to see into her thoughts though since I had no clue she was so awesome. She has her flaws, which makes her feel real and easy to relate to. And oh my goodness, Luke's family was such a hoot to read about. I was laughing out loud by some of their antics. If you're a fan of contemporary romance and haven't read this series yet, I highly suggest it.

Reviewed by Angela and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog Wild Seasons series is a series of friends who had a blast in Vegas, and by that, I mean getting wickedly drunk and getting hitched. Realizing it was a mistake, they quickly annulled the marriage, but they all ended up friends and later getting to know more of each other. As cliche as it sounds, each story in this series is wickedly sexy and awfully sweet. This latest and last release of the series, Wicked Sexy Liar is about London and Luke. Luke is Mia’s high school sweetheart, good friends with Harlow and Lola. London is Lola’s roommate. I know it’s complicated, and there was plenty drama to go around. Because Luke had history with Mia, Harlow and Lola was a bit protective of him and even a bit territorial. It wasn’t easy for Luke and Lola to get involved. Not to mention both their past with their exes jaded them to trust fully. There wasn’t much angst in their story, but there were plenty of issues and drama they had to deal with. I tried to look at this book in a different eye. I attempted to look for things I didn’t like, and I honestly couldn’t find anything negative. I would’ve enjoyed a deeper conflict in the story but other than that, I was very happy with Luke and London. Christina Lauren managed to let their readers get to know Luke, who was viewed as a bad guy from the previous books. It was also easy to feel like these two belonged and I found myself cheering on for them to make it. I also enjoyed the involvement of the characters from the previous books. Seeing them live their HEA was such a treat. One of the characters known as Not-Joe gets a little more page time in this book. We find out his real name, and we get to know him a little more. Of course not nearly enough. Though it is said that this is the end of the series, I’m still hoping that this is not the last we’ll see of Not-Joe or the rest of the gang.

So excited to get a new Christina Lauren book...and definitely was not disappointed! Always a fun read, but they really delivered with this one! Going into the book, I had a pretty low opinion of Luke based on the previous books in the series...but he was so fun, who could help but fall in love with him? Full of charm and humor, I think Luke and London are my favorite couple since Max and Sara from Christina Lauren's Beautiful series. I'd love to read more about them!

4/4.5 Stars | Hot Steam Having recently discovered the sublime and obsession-inspiring Wild Seasons series by Christina Lauren—jumping in with book 3, DARK WILD NIGHT—I have since been irrevocably smitten and ravenous for more of the talented author duo’s unique brand of transcendent naughtiness. So, you can imagine the euphoria and heady anticipation I felt the moment WICKED SEXY LIAR landed in my giddy, fangirl hands! And, holy hotness, did this book deliver! Smart, superbly written and sparkling with humor, heart, and endless charm, WICKED SEXY LIAR, positively swept me off my feet! I couldn’t put London and Luke’s story down—solidly immersed well into the night—entranced and joyfully besotted with their delightfully entertaining path to forever. With every page I fell harder and faster for the immensely appealing couple, their remarkable chemistry, and searing, enviable passion—reluctantly returning to reality only after re-reading and lingering over the novel’s happy and hopeful epilogue. I’ll always enjoy the riotous Vegas trio of besties, Mia, Harlow and Lola. However, London’s winning personality stood out, surprised me, and swiftly surpassed all of my expectations. She is the kind of intriguing, worthy, and admirable heroine that you want to hug, emulate, and simply cling to. London is unobtrusively magnetic, bright, witty, self-reliant, self-respecting, and completely at home with herself. It’s freeing to read a female character that is unashamed of her body and unabashed and unapologetic of her carnal desires. She embraces it all and bravely and brazenly asserts herself with Luke—standing up for what she needs, wants, and deserves. I worshipped her for it. After he strolls into London’s life, you know he’s going to be great—so insanely wonderful—but I’m immensely pleased that London makes him work for it. Luke sweats and strains to earn her trust and love because he wisely realizes that she’s the one woman that warrants his all—his everything. And Luke, mercy, that man! He’s a one-of-a-kind, mold-breaker of a hero so delectably sweet, irresistibly sexy, and hilariously and irrepressibly endearing that I couldn’t help but adore him—despite his initial entrenchment in Manwhoreville. Of course he has his pick of any willing woman any night of the week. He’s a stunningly handsome, talented, attentive, intuitive, and voracious lover. Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to tousle in his sheets for a feverish few hours? But, thankfully, with London, he’s different. She immediately, without any plan or effort, motivates him want to be a better man. Her goodness, spirit, strength, and sunny beauty is a startling revelation to him. She shifts his axis, his priorities rearrange, and he steadily regroups and redeems himself, maturing into the man he was always meant to be. I loved this lusciously seductive sensation of a romance and couldn’t have asked for a more satisfying conclusion to the Wild Seasons series. My keeper shelf will just have to patiently wait a little while longer as I’m still pawing WICKED SEXY LIARS’s vivid, lawn-green cover, fondly remembering my favorite flirty lines and steamy scenes. Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

This was excellent! I loved every second. Luke is the biggest sweetheart ever and I loved his and London's story. Perfection! Luke and London were such great characters. Loved the introduction! I was immediately pulled into their world with the fun and easy banter they shared as well as amazing chemistry. It was flirty and playful. Everything was so entertaining and enjoyable to read. Luke has got to be one of the sweetest, most genuine characters ever, so caring and open. It was refreshing! Loved London as well, she seemed very real to me. I totally got her and her skepticism and where she was in her life. I loved learning their background grounds and figuring out why they ticked they way they did. It was really a great journey of self discovery for both as they open up and share and get closer and closer. I inhaled every detail! So freaking good! And these two together, when that playful builds and turns into hot? It's super hot! Seriously excellent story between these two. Not only is there this story of Luke and London but one with Mia, Harlow, and Lola since there is a connection with Luke and their past. I really enjoyed all the wonderful moments they all shared as forgiveness and acceptance started to happen. These girls love hard and fiercely, I love how protective they are. It was really touching. There was a nice amount of angst and tension along the way as everything built, it perfect. Fantastic writing! A truly excellent story that was engaging with sexy and fun characters. There were so many humorous moments laced throughout as well as some emotional ones. Luke's Gram is pretty amazing (seriously awesome one-liners!), I adored Luke’s sister, and I loved getting to see Not-Joe and finding out a bit more about him. I hate to say goodbye to the Wild Seasons series but I truly thought it was a great ending. Wonderful epilogue and the perfect last sentence to wrap it up as it all came full circle. Another awesome read from Christina Lauren. 5 wicked sexy stars! Complimentary copy received for honest review.
