Review of Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren

The bit on the back…

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.

I am pretty certain I am a little bit in love with this book. I read it in no time at all and I could drop everything right now and read it over again because it was just that good.

This is the fourth, and contender for my favoutire, of CLo’s Wild Seasons series. It’s all about London who shares a flat with Lola, the MC from the 3rd book in the series, and another character Luke, who you might also recognise. At first I didn’t then I was like oh hell no!! when I did.

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaan, I don’t even know where to start. Christina and Lauren have ruined me for all the other book boys. Luke is gorgeous and a perfect fit for London. They have a natural chemistry which is easy and the banter and joking flows between them alongside inevitable sexual tension. One of my favourite things about Luke and London’s relationship is their friendship because it means so much to both of them. The whole series is built on friendship and this novel is an extension of the original tight bond between Mia, Harlow and Lola.

Luke, now, and London are sort of interlopers to Vegas newlyweds gang and London feels every bit of that although she is welcomed completely into the fold. There is a hesitancy on her part to get closer to Luke and it does get in the way of their relationship progressing.

As always it astounds me that this book was written by two people. The writing is faultless, beautiful and enthralling, keeping you pining for the characters long after you’ve finished reading the book. It’s all about real feelings and emotions and realistic characters and situations. I found it very easy to imagine London and Luke and to invest myself in their story. I cannot wait to see what is next from these two, and I can’t wait to come over all fangirl when I meet them at RARE this year!
