Prince of Lies by Lucy Lennox

Prince of Lies is a laugh out loud hilarious story and is definitely one of my top Lucy Lennox romances ever! 

From the blurb:

Rowe Prince is a lying liar who windmills into my life in full color, claiming to be Sterling Chase, a quirky, eccentric billionaire… and founder of the company I created.

Two can play at the lying game, though, and I’m not about to let some burrito-delivering, floppy-haired virgin from Indiana best me at a game I was born to play.

So I do him one better and pretend to be Sterling Chase’s new assistant. I’ll teach him a lesson that will hopefully wind us both up in bed… with nothing but the truth between us.

But it turns out his shameless lies are enchanting… unintentionally hilarious… and make it all too easy to forget the truth…

Until I learn that this cutie’s intent is to defraud the company I’ve spent years building. I have to choose: risk the company or say goodbye to the man I’m falling for. A guy who just might be…

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

"I'd never considered what it felt like when Cinderella crashed back to Earth after her one brilliant night of dancing. Of how much more terrible it felt to put your rags back on when you knew for a fact how amazing the life just out of your reach could be."

This was such a freaking delight. It was utterly hilarious and, dare I say, outright ridiculous at times, but I couldn't wipe the smile off my face the entire time reading it. Even now I'm catching myself smirking at the memory of different parts of the book. I have so many highlights and I just finished reading this book and couldn't help but gush about it a little. I read it in one sitting. I couldn't stop. I had to know what over the top hilarity was going to happen next!

"Years from now, when Bash had forgotten all about the time he fucked the Burrito Bandito, I'd still be savoring this moment."

The romance was whirlwind and began as a heap of lies, but truths streaked through. Almost like they couldn't help themselves. They wanted the other person to know the real them, if only a glimpse. The Brotherhood are absolutely nuts, but I adored the hell out of them. They were like a start of a joke. A thrill seeker, a horse trainer, an uptight businessman, a rock star, and a dilettante walk into a bar... And I adored them even more by the end with the way they welcomed Rowe and gave him a sense of that type of familial bond again. I may be off, but I thought I was def getting vibes between a certain PA and the manwhore of the group. Lennox is still being tight-lipped about the next MCs, so we won't know for sure quite yet. What I do know for sure is that I'll be reading it.

Sheena's Review:

I loved this book so much. It had absolutely everything I wanted in a Lucy Lennox book, and more. I loved the meet cute between Rowe and Bash. I could feel their chemistry right away. I loved their banter, and Rowe trying to pretend, and being so terrible at it but Bash going along with it, anyway.

Rowe is an absolute delight all the way through the book. He's so sweet and funny and just a complete marshmallow that I fell in love with him alongside Bash. Yes, he's more than a touch na├»ve, but that just adds to his charm.  Bash too, I really liked. I got a real sense of unrest from him but loved that he immediately saw the best in Rowe and played along with him. The story isn't remotely plausible, of course, but who cares when it's such fun with all the elements to keep you turning the pages. There's the requisite bad guy, older society lady who sees everything, and a great cast of secondary characters who I hope we see again.

This is sweet, funny, romantic, no angst, medium heat and it's just the most wonderful read. Cannot recommend enough.
