Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis
Narrator: Karen White
Length: 9 hrs and 35 mins

Date Read: June 2016

Genre: Contemporary, Romance

Choose the one guy you can’t have . . .

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she’s in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.

Fall for him—hard . . .

Pub owner Finn O’Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don’t ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.

And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it’s what she wishes for at the historic fountain that’s supposed to grant her heart’s desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru’s been keeping a secret that could change everything. . . .

First Thought when Finished: Sweet Little Lies was a good introduction to a new series and cast of characters.

Quick Thoughts: I am a huge fan of the Animal Magnetism series by Jill and Heartbreaker Bay had all the elements that I love from her: good core characters, great setting, and quirky side characters. I am really looking forward to the next few books (particularly the next one) because the core group of friends is a really nice hook. For Sweet Little Lies, while I wasn’t “in love” Pru (it is always the female characters that make me love or like a book), I did like her. She held her own with the group and I loved her back/forth with them. Her relationship with Finn was a bit topsy-turvy and drove me nuts. I think it worked for them in the end but I admit I rolled my eyes a few times. She just seemed to have a backbone more around his friends than with him. It was an overall good solid read and like I said, had some great characters that I look forward to learning more about. The next one is Willa who was one of my favorite characters so that should be downright fun!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Karen White / Length: 9 hrs and 35 mins

Karen and Jill make a fantastic team. I think she really nails the humor and quirk that Jill has in her writing. She brings out a character’s charm and sass which are staples in Jill’s stories. I highly recommend this on audio!

  1. Ooooo, I’ve got to pull this book out and actually READ it!!! I have the physical copy and it’s so hard to remember to read those *palm forehead* I’m so glad it’s pretty good and that you’re looking forward to the rest of the stories from the cast of characters!!!

  2. Though I don’t read a lot of contemporary romances I took your advice and listened to this one because of Karen White and I really enjoyed it. They do make a great team! 🙂

    • YES! I think especially with contemporary since I don’t read a lot of it. I do better with 2nd and on books because I have an established relationship with the characters. First books usually I just don’t feel enough connection to not get aggravated at some choice they make LOL
