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.

In February 2015, I posted my reviews for the first two books in the Wild Seasons series on the blog, but somehow I’ve skipped the third book – Dark Wild Night – and dove straight into Wicked Sexy Liar, London and Luke’s story in this sizzling and entertaining series!

I have enjoyed the books that I have read in this series so far, so it was no surprise that I enjoyed Wicked Sexy Liar. Both the main characters had been hurt by love before and were hesitant to go through that again. Luke was a bit of a playboy and slept around a lot since he split from his long time girlfriend. London was scared to let anyone in after how her previous boyfriend deceived her. Their first night together was supposed to be a onetime thing; Luke made a mistake that London didn’t correct him on, but she didn’t care enough to make it right. But I found when these two were together they were able to relax, leave their heartache at the door and be swept away in the moment.

I liked seeing their relationship develop, despite their denial about it. They both had feelings for one another but their pasts held them back. London found it hard to trust Luke but enjoyed being around him, seeing more to him than what he usually portrayed. Luke didn’t know how to deal with just one woman anymore. He’s used to being carefree and enjoying the pleasure of random women, but the more time he spent with London, the more she consumed his mind.

London and Luke’s story was told beautifully and I loved learning about them. I was able to see why they held back but together they faced some fears that they would avoid at all costs. I loved seeing all my favourite characters again from the previous books in the series and how their storylines entwined with Luke and London’s. The bonus story in the back featuring Not-Joe and Perry was fabulous too, and I cannot wait to get more about those two!

Hehe... the flirty banter between Luke and London was a lot of fun!! 

Following me with his eyes, he asks, “So is this no-dating-guys-you-meet-at-work thing, like, an actual rule?”
“Sort of.” I fold the bar towel and tuck it into the back of my apron, meeting his eyes.
“What if I promised I was absolutely worth it?”
Why do I think he is absolutely telling the truth? He smiles shyly, but behind his honey-brown eyes, I can see he’s still hunting.
“I’m sure you’re amazing.”

Yes, there are two of us! Lauren (on the left) and Christina (on the right).

Christina Lauren is the combined pen name of long-time writing partners/besties/soulmates/brain-twins Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings. The coauthor duo writes both Young Adult and Adult Fiction, and together has produced nine New York Times bestselling novels. Their books have been translated into 23+ languages.

Lauren Billings (but everyone calls her Lo) has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and before she made writing her full-time job, would spend her days doing nerdy research-type things wearing a lab coat and goggles. She is silly Mommy to two littles, wife to one mountain biking homebrewing scientist, bestie to a shoe-stealer, and an unabashed lover of YA and romance.

Christina Hobbs (but you’ll always hear Lo call her PQ) used to spend her days in a junior high counseling office surrounded by teenagers. These days you’ll probably find her on tumblr. She is married and absolutely not old enough to be the mom of a 14 year old (right??), thinks she’s the luckiest person in the world to write books with her best friend, and is an unapologetic lover of boy bands and glitter. She also likes to steal Lo’s shoes.
