5 Such a Liar Crowns

I am utterly and completely obsessed with Lauren’s writing, her stories are always written with such effortless precision and grace, she has this vibrant way with words that grabs you from the first page and holds you captivated until the very end. I became lost in this world and completely devoured this story cover to cover without taking a single break. I absolutely could not get enough of Reed and Georgie, They Are Pure Kindle Crack…..

There’s no happily ever after I can offer you, sweetheart. No ending to this story where I’m the prince and you’re my pretty princess, and we ride off together into the sunset on a white horse.  

You guys are NOT ready for Reed Rivers, he is All. The. Things. And by all the things, I mean; ALL. THE. FREAKING. THINGS!!! Gahhhhh this man is a dynamic, possessive alpha wrapped up in a drop dead gorgeous dirty talking asshole. I happen to like my antiheros just this way, this man literally checked every one of my boxes. He exudes sex appeal and Alpha status on every single page! You can feel his aura bursting from the pages and enveloping you in his sex appeal. I’m seriously not even joking about this, you can feel it! That’s how well Lauren wrote this man. I was not ready for the Reed Rivers effect I’ll tell you that right now. But now that I’ve experienced it there’s no going back. 

Georgina. It’s a perfect name for her—a name I’ll enjoy growling into her ear as I fuck her raw, and without mercy… 

I absolutely could not get enough of Georgie, she is pure fire! I loved the level of sass that she brought to the pages and the way she handled Reed. She has a hair trigger temper that I am here for!!! I think one of the things I liked about her character so much is that she owns what she wants and who she is. She is not pretending to be anything and I connected with that. I loved that she embraced her sexuality and didn’t let anyone make her feel less for that. And she and Reed together are like a five alarm fire, they are absolutely combustible in the best way possible. I’m surprised my Kindle didn’t burst into flames every time they were in the same room. 

Overwhelmed by the nuclear bomb exploding inside me—the powerful yearning I felt to claim, conquer, own, desecrate. 

Every time I read one of Lauren’s stories I get completely lost in the world that she has created and this story is no different. I am so glad that this is a trilogy because I am nowhere near ready for this to be over. Reed and Georgie are absolute PERFECTION together and I can’t wait to see where Lauren takes their story. This book has so many layers and the characters are so diverse and complicated you can’t help but become enthralled waiting to see what layer is uncovered next. Lauren has without a doubt Slayed book 1 of this trilogy and has made me even more excited to see what happens next. And The Reed Rivers Effect is a real thing trust me as soon as you read this you’ll understand!!

Sarah’s Musings…


DUUUUUDDDDEEEE! Lauren Rowe brought the steam. I mean, her heroes do not ever disappoint on the swoon or in between the sheets, but Reed was another level.

I think what I loved most about both of these characters is that are sexually open with what they crave and what they want. They do not deny it, the don’t apologize for it. It was refreshing and fun. They had chemistry and banter, the perfect combination.

The story is great. We get a lot of character development and exposition. Readers really get to know what motivates these characters, creating fully developed three dimensional characters. I do wish there would have been a bit more story, but as it is book one of a trilogy, I could very well come back and change my opinion and bump to five.

The writing is fantastic. I’m a fan of Lauren Rowe’s style. I find her characters refreshing and unique. Her worlds draw me in, and the characters are enchanting and relatable.

If you love Audible’s need to give this book a listen. The male narrator is…there aren’t enough words, and the dual narration really brought the story to life.

I’m certainly dying to see where Lauren continues to takes with these two.

Tricia’s Musings…

4 incendiary CROWNS

Bad Liar is like nothing I have read by this author before. I’m not sure what I was expecting but it came as a complete surprise to me. It really packs a punch right from the start and I have to admit, I’m not sure yet whether I actually like Reed Rivers. He’s definitely an interesting character but I’m reserving my judgment for now. It would be easy to take him at face value, I feel, but I’m finding him quite a multifaceted, multilayered character. Definitely arrogant and self centred, he’s also hugely cynical and his life experiences have made him somewhat hardened to any kind of sentimentality. He’s the kind of man who snaps his fingers and expects things to be done. However, he’s also rather damaged and I believe there’s a part of him, some deeper need in him, that wants to find a special someone who believes he is worthy of being loved. If only he could trust someone to accept him for who he is and not have ulterior motives. Someone genuine, who can make him forget that “everyone’s got a price”.

Now Georgina, she’s a different kettle of fish all together, and I warmed to her immediately. Strong and feisty, with a great sense of humor, she’s not one to back down and I loved her loyalty, not to mention her grit and determination. Yes, her youthfulness shows itself at times, but I applaud her drive, her boldness, her sense of self and her take no nonsense attitude. I certainly admire her problem solving skills not to mention the effect she has on River. You can almost see them combust when they’re in the same room together. Sexual chemistry, more like sexual incendiary! The push and pull between the two of them is fantastic. It’s like watching a fencing match with the thrust and parry between them, both stubborn and each giving as good as they get.

I really enjoyed the explosive first part of this couple’s journey. It’s fun and funny, sexy and frustrating. There is so much more to their story and I’m very excited to see where they go next.

ARC review


An all new, STANDALONE Trilogy from USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Rowe starts in ONE WEEK. Bad Liar, the first book in the highly anticipated Reed Rivers Trilogy will release in ebook, paperback and audiobook (narrated by Andi Arndt & Jacob Morgan).

Swallowing lies has never felt so good.Reed freaking Rivers. I wouldn’t trust a word out of the arrogant music mogul’s mouth if his gold-plated tongue were notarized. The Man with the Midas Touch would say anything to get me into his bed, and I know it. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want him to succeed.Indeed, the moment I laid eyes on Reed while he was speaking at an on-campus event I’d crashed, my body physically ached to feel his golden fingers—and tongue—all over me. Unfortunately, though, I can’t give into my powerful craving to jump Reed’s cocky bones. Not until I’ve figured out my best strategy with him . . .The truth is Reed has something I desperately want. Something my heart desires even more than my body craves one night of delicious fun with the yummiest man alive. Reed assumes he’s running this game of seduction. He thinks he’s a thirty-four-year-old big cat on the prowl, and I’m nothing but a blushing twenty-one-year old field mouse with stars in my eyes.Yeah . . . no.As Reed is about to find out, he’s not the only cat on the hunt in this game of cat-and-mouse . . . .BAD LIAR is the first book of the standalone REED RIVERS TRILOGY. The full trilogy is BAD LIAR, BEAUTIFUL LIAR, and BELOVED LIAR, to be read in order.
