I am pleasantly surprised that I really ended up liking this book. In the beginning, there was a lot of info dumping and unnecessary repetition that took me out of the book time and again. But by the middle, it ended up picking up. More repetition near the end, with a few unanswered questions and loose ties.
However, the characters were enjoyable, and I found myself rooting for them to end up together. I really liked Spencer and being inside his head. The relationship between him and his father was really interesting and believable. Holly and Spencer were really cute together, and I found myself smiling and laughing throughout the story. By the last page, I was thoroughly engrossed in the book.
This was a fun read that didn’t take too long to get through. I recommend to anyone looking for a fun contemporary romance.
My rating: 4 stars
Her arms were full by the time she returned to the table where Spencer sat. When she set them down they sort of tumbled out of her arms in a super graceful manner. The flour outright fell from the crook of her arm where she’d been cradingly it and it landed in Spencer’s lap with a thud and then a poof as a cloud of powder puffed out of the open top and settled over Spencer’s face.
Holly stared in horror, her hands over her mouth. His nice, neat, formerly blue buttoned down shirt was now white. His face was ghostly pale. And his glasses… She choked on a wholly inappropriate laugh as he slowly lifted a hand to wipe off his powdered glasses and peer at her.
It all started with a lie…
Holly has been sent to con her reclusive tech genius neighbor, but she has one big problem: she can’t lie to save her life. To make matters worse, she breaks every rule in the book when she develops a crush on her mark.
Spencer is on to his stunning neighbor’s deception from the start, but in an effort to figure out her plan he’s gone and done the unthinkable—he’s fallen for the one woman he can never trust.
