’Shhhh’ His index finger comes up to his mouth and shushes me. It’s sexy as hell, even as a warning, but I still ignore it.





Get ready to have your heart stolen by another “over the top”, sinfully sexy and charismatic alpha hero created by the incomparable Jodi Ellen Malpas! Becker Hunt is a modern-day cross between Indiana Jones and JEM’s most unforgettable heroes, Jesse Ward & Miller Hart. It isn’t a surprise that she wrote “Artful Lies” right after she had written the ”This Man” and ”One Night” series. There isn’t much that I didn’t love about this book. The cover is gorgeous. The plot grabbed and held on to my attention from beginning to end. But most of all, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with Becker Hunt! Who would have thought a simple ’shhhh’ and eating an apple could be so freaking HOT?!!!




The push and pull, cat & mouse, combustible chemistry between Becker and Eleanor was addictive. I couldn’t get enough of their banter and steamy rendezvous! Their story is passionate, adventurous, and angst-filled. I have only one complaint, and it’s a HUGE one! How can JEM possibly expect us to wait until NOVEMBER to get our hands on ”WICKED TRUTHS”?!! This is cruel and unusual punishment.

Here are my overall ratings:
Hero: 5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

”ARTFUL LIES” releases on April 30th!
