Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren

Title: Wicked Sexy Liar, Author: Christina Lauren  Wicked Sexy Liar is the fourth book in the Wild Seasons series by Christina Lauren (the pen name for writing partners Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings). The series started with three friends - Mia, Harlow, and Lola - who met and married three guys - Ansel, Finn, and Oliver - one drunken night in Las Vegas. Now that the three friends and their boyfriend (for one) and husbands (for the other two) are settled, Wicked Sexy Liar tells the story of Lola's roommate London and her romantic adventures with Luke.

London spends her days surfing and her nights tending bar. She's friends with Mia, Harlow, and Lola but not part of their tight inner circle. (Mia, Harlow and Lola grew up together). London is fine with that and with her life in general. Sure someday she would like to get paid to do what she actually went to college for (web design), but for now London is doing fine. She is also fine with being single. Still reeling from being cheated on by her longtime now ex-boyfriend, London keeps people, especially men, at a distance. Then of all the bars, Luke has to walk into hers.

Luke is a sweet guy whose best friend is his older sister. His main flaw is that he has a habit of bedding anything female on two legs. London usually doesn't date (or go home with) customers but she has an itch that needs scratching and Luke is just cute and funny enough for her to make an exception.What was supposed to be a one night stand quickly turns into something more and neither Luke nor London are quite prepared. To make things even more complicated, it turns out Luke knows Harlow, Lola, and especially Mia from way back.

I don't have much to say about Wicked Sexy Liar except that it was another sweet and sexy read from Christina Lauren. Luke and London have instant chemistry but have to work through their respective pasts and change some of their present behaviors and modes of thinking before they can figure out their future together. I enjoyed this book but this being the fourth book in this series, things are starting to feel a little repetitive. It may be time to try something different like Christina Lauren's Beautiful Bastard series.
