Publisher's Summary

When three college besties meet three hot guys in Vegas, anything can - and does - happen. Book four in the New York Times Wild Seasons series that began with Sweet Filthy Boy (the Romantic Times book of the year that Sylvia Day called "a sexy, sweet treasure of a story"), Dirty Rowdy Thing, and Dark Wild Night.
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 nonplan. 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 to ensure he's not something she'll outright avoid as well.

This author, or should I say these authors, are some of my favorites. I've read and listened to the entire beautiful series as well as the wild seasons and as always the books are adorable and funny, cute and easy.
That being said....
Here's the thing about them, they tend to be repetitive, which is great if you aren't reading the whole series or you're reading out of order, but if you're reading them the way I do, as soon as they come out, it can be a little off putting. The whole dynamic of the series revolves around this group and they tend to run parallel so you find yourself basically re-reading something that you already had before. Sometimes it's nice to see the other side of a scenario, sometimes it's frustrating. The characters aren't deep.
The real hang up I had with this one, and actually probably all of them, is that you drown in details. I don't need to know how to make a vodka gimlet, I don't need to know every single thing that's in a room and I don't need to know every single over exaggerated feeling everyone has. It swamps you. It may just be me, but honestly, it's overwhelming and I zone out.
Now, if you can get passed it, the book is great. It's fun, and it made me laugh. I'm in my thirties so the early twenty-somethings tend to be a tad cliche with the whole girl friend- zones player, player falls in love and chases, nerdy girl resists kind of way, and it's pretty drama free. Light. Pretty much, the problems that kids fresh out of college worry about before the world becomes real. They are all super adorable and charming and I really think that's why I still love these books despite the obvious flaws.



I love to read, I love to listen to the audiobooks, and I always check the reviews to decide if it's a book worth while. By all means, I think this one is worth the listen, but seriously, the first few chapters are a hill to get over before you finally get lost in the story and forget about all that is annoying. It's a fun, easy listen that really is pretty adorable in that aw to be young kind of way.

Witty Banter, Poetic, Hot Love Scenes - A+ story!

I absolutely loved this book. I don't understand any of the lackluster reviews. I think this book is SOLID Christina Lauren, and shows the growth and development of their writing. My long-time favorite of theirs was Sweet Filthy Boy, and Wicked Sexy Liar came in a close second. The banter between Luke and London is witty, flirty and dirty - really awesome and engaging. The storyline is realistic, with appropriate, uncontrived angst, meaning the angst comes from real life jealousies, doubts and insecurities and not from 'surprise' pregnancies, 'mistaken' infidelities, or wicked, manipulative parents. The main characters are real, fleshed out, show growth, and are 'want-to-know-them' worthy. Grams is a stitch. All the key 'supporting' characters provide a solid structural foundation to the main characters, a tie-in to the other books of this series and a healthy perspective on the whole story arc. The sex scenes are pretty hot - though not over-the-top-porn-crap. I felt like the authors tried to be a bit more poetically sensual in this book, and I think it worked. Sex scenes were written in such a way that they were very erotic by virtue of the intense feelings that accompanied them, and the vivid descriptions of those feelings, both emotional and physical. I think both narrators did a fairly good job; I especially liked chapter 14, narrated by Deacon Lee. It was so sensual and poetically written and his delivery was perfect for those very intimate, personal feelings of Luke. It was a compelling read, and one I'll likely do again.
