Just another day at the office.
For some people that means spreadsheets, and for others it’s stitching endless hems. For Jacob Archer a day at the office is stealing proprietary information from a bioengineering firm for a paranoid software billionaire. He’s a liar and a thief, parlaying a glib tongue and a facile conscience into a lucrative career. He just has one rule—never get involved with a mark.
Well, had one rule. To be fair though, Simon Ramsey is dark, dangerous, and has shoulders like a Greek statue. Besides, it’s not as though Jacob’s even really stealing from Simon… just his boss and his brother-in-law. Simon didn’t buy that excuse either after he caught Jacob breaking into the company’s computer network.
That would have been that—one messy breakup, one ticket to Bali booked—but it turns out that the stolen information is worth more than Jacob thought. With his life—and his ribs—threatened, Jacob needs Simon to help him out. Or maybe he just needs Simon.
Liar, Liar by TA Moore is a male/male contemporary romantic suspense. Jacob Archer is an expert hacker. Trouble is he fell for his latest mark, Simon Ramsey. When the job is over, it’s more than emotions keeping him from running. Someone is not happy about the information he obtained and now Jacob and Simon have to work together so they can both be free.
Liar, Liar had an intriguing concept. There’s something about a rootless man falling in love that makes you hope extra hard for the happy ending. But who could blame Jacob for falling for Simon? He’s hot, over his addictions, and heroic. Nothing like being saved to make you want to stay. I can’t say that I understood Simon’s devotion to Jacob. He’s a pretty messed up guy who may not be the best choice of partner for Simon’s long term recovery. But to each their own. All in all, Liar, Liar was a fun read. Didn’t go too deep, but it didn’t need to.
