Random Release & Review . . . 7 Dirty Lies by Alexis Anne


7 Dirty Lies by Alexis Anne is NOW LIVE! Dirty never felt so good...




It was right out of one of my movies: Tropical island, sexy single man, two hot nights of nameless passion. Except instead of falling into each other's arms, we went our separate ways, never to be seen again. Of course I thought about him all the time. The way he laughed, the way he saw right through me, the way he took no shit as his strong hands roamed my body. If there was one night I could repeat, it would be that one. 

 I never expected to see my mystery man again. Fast forward to my new movie set and the handsome property owner. Yep, same guy. Same sexy, sexy guy. Our chemistry is still off the charts but there’s one tiny problem: he doesn’t trust me. Okay, so I skipped a few important details. I don’t blame the guy. But they were just little white lies.

Unfortunately if I want that movie-perfect ending I’m going to have to set the record straight...and hopefully have a little fun in the process.


**My Review**

3.7 stars

Lily & Colt meet at a time in both their lives when they really just want to try to learn to relax again and while they're exactly what each other needs, they're both hesitant to truly be it. Their connection is instant and beautiful, but they only see it as temporary and a true fantasy because in 48 hours, they'll have to face the reality of never seeing each other agin.

This book had A LOT of sex scenes and while enjoyable, I found myself skipping a few of them after a while - nothing against the writing, but after the first few it became evident that the sex was explosive and I wanted to focus more on the rest of their lives. Both characters seemed to live their lives for everyone else, but found that they weren't very happy with that (who would be). I liked that they took the time to explore themselves and their relationship.

I didn't like that most of the drama seemed to be thwarted, instead of explored. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I'll be as vague here as possible (hopefully). The chick at the hospital, the mom (crazy woman), the parents, the company, the ex, the lies . . . so much opportunity for true drama, but it was all handled logically - TOO logically. I don't know anyone who could be under so much stress in their lives on a constant basis and still respond to the situations as they did in such a rational manner. Not that I didn't want them to be happy, I just expected so much more strife with all of the outside influence. It made the book too nice and neat.

Hands down my favorite scene, the wedding dress - SWOON!!! I also completely adored Ted and Charley.

Former archaeologist Alexis Anne (who also writes romantic suspense as Alexis Sykes) has worked as an oral historian, GIS specialist, field archaeologist, college professor, and small business owner, before deciding that working from home and writing books was a lot more satisfying. She writes steamy, sexy romance with one half of her brain and romantic suspense, action adventure, and children’s books with the other half. Growing up she traipsed through the islands of the Gulf Coast, camped in the Everglades, dove the Keys, and generally felt more at home spending her days outdoors with a good book. She currently lives in a home filled with wild men (otherwise known as her extremely extroverted husband, The Sexy Editor, and their two kids), a husky, and a superhero guinea pig.
