If you could sum up Lies in Rewind in three words, what would they be?
Twisty, Sexy, Explicit
Who was your favorite character and why?
Liam was my favorite character because of his frankness and earnest although mistaken desire to save Emily as he could not save his sister Isabella.
Which scene was your favorite?
Chapter 16's "In The Air Tonight" by Phil Collins was my favorite, especially Liam's thoughts about choice; ‘Sara, she’s my choice and I need to be a good choice for her, right now. I want to be somebody’s bloody choice.’ ~Liam
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I loved recognizing the eighties songs! I think there was only one that I didn't know automatically. I laughed quite a bit at Liam's inner monologue and his humorous outlook on things.
Any additional comments?
Sara and Liam both pined for lovers who were married. Cheating tropes are a negative trigger for me, so I felt very conflicted about them. I continued with the Audio Fools series because I loved the quirky habit the two female best friends, Emily and Sara, had of communicating their emotional state via eighties song lyrics. I used to do something similar when I was their age, so I loved all the nostalgic song references. But normally, I would not eagerly read a novel with any real degree of cheating as a defining element.
Sara in particular was a confusing character who projected an image of herself that was mostly a façade. Liam, motivated by revenge for his deceased sister, Isabella, sought out to destroy Louis Bruel via his wife Emily. One thing led to another and Sara and Liam met because of his returning presence in Emily’s life. Being the best friend and savvy lawyer that she is, Sara, as Emily’s best friend, equipped with her lawyer skills, decided to find out why Liam was so determined to disrupt Emily’s marriage. During the course of her investigation, she and Liam opened up to one another in an intimate setting, quickly discovering how they each had a history that led them to now have more in common than expected. But Sara’s past is still part of her present, so things don’t fall into place for these two potential lovers until much later in the story.
Overall, I liked the story’s arc and felt the setting and song title references really set a good tone for fast intimacy and the beginnings of a deeper connection between Sara and Liam. The dialogue was often frank. The sexy times were hot. And the reflective inner monologue each character had was in line with information they knew at the time. There was also a suspenseful element to this story with plenty of flashbacks revealing new details about Sara’s, Liam's and Isabella's pasts. Often when I thought I knew what would happen next, I was proven wrong. The longer period of time that eventually ends the novel was another element I liked. And that ending, ack! Luckily, there won’t be a long wait for the final novel in the series.
One of my favorite humorous quotes:
“This is nothing compared to what Richard and I plan to do to you and kitty. Everything about you drives me mad. I reckon we may both need a good will because we may just kill each other,” he declares with a grin.
Coming up next in the series is Lost in Rewind (Audio Fools, #3) with an expected e-book release date of September 1, 2016. The audiobook release date status has yet to be announced, but I’ll be doing another dual format read at that time.
