Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren | Book Review

Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren

Reading Group: M for Mature

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: 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.

Cover: This novel continues the classic Christina Lauren covers.  I love the covers of their books.  I think they're simple, but beautiful.  This one is green with Luke dressed in a suit.

My Review: What would you do if you started sleeping with a friend's ex-boyfriend?  Is there a statute of limitations on something like that?  London comes to find out that it depends on the friend.  And if that friend is Mia, who is happily married to Ansel, it's going to be weird for a minute and then it will be okay and you will happily have Luke Sutter in your life forever and ever.  It was kind of ironic ah Luke was trying to get into law school and Mia married a lawyer-turned-law-professor.  I thought that was funny.  This story is a classic Christina Lauren novel and I loved every second of it.  I read it a day and Luke and London were just the cutest.  One of my absolute favorite things about Christina Lauren's books is that the boy always gives the girl a nickname and I thought it was hysterical that Luke called London the wrong name and that's what became her nickname.  
Both London and Luke had previous fails with love and so neither of them really want to dive in again.  However, it all took was one person to change their outlook on love.  When they meet each other it doesn't take long for either of them to realize that this time is different and once they get Mia and Harlow's approval there's nothing holding them back except themselves.  
It was also nice that they got together because Mia and Luke weren't the only ones who suffered from their breakup.  Harlow and Lola chose to stick with Mia, but they were Luke's friends too so if he is with London they all get to have each other back in their lives.  I think that as the years passed and they were able to grow up and learn what they wanted out of their lives, they all realized that it could never be the way it was when they were twelve or even eighteen, but that didn't mean they couldn't find their way back to each other in some way.

Smile!  I'll talk to you soon!
