BOOK REVIEW- LUCKY LIAR by Mallory Crowe
This lie will come back to bite her...
Wade Maxium is a lot of things. Ruthless. Billionaire. Business man extraordinaire. Murderer?
When Zoe Young finds proof of his nefarious past, she attempts to blackmail him in a last ditch effort to pick up the pieces of her broken life. But Wade offers her a lot more money than she could've ever imagined in exchange for one simple little favor.
Could his crazy proposal be the stroke of luck she's been dreaming about? Or is this notorious liar luring her into his trap? AMAZON 4 STARS
Dramatic start. There is also good main characters who come from such opposite poles of life.
I did like Zoe and her often bold mouth but Wade? I switched back and forth between liking him and wanting to re-name him. Can anyone spell J-E-R-K? No wonder Zoe felt like life was topsy turvey when it came to him. Is he attractive? Check. Is he rich? Check. Is he hard to live with? Double Check. Can he be sweet at times? Check. Could he use his words as a weapon at times? Check. Hence, the reason I thought he was a jerk at times. The conversations between Wade and Zoe were often interesting just because of him being a jerk during those times. Zoe owns up to the fact that she can be snarky. So that brought out some humor. When Wade allowed himself to be caring and sweet, yes then he was quite charming.
There is a couple of mysteries going on that are causing Wade some major problems. The time or two that Wade took out his frustration on Zoe through his words (even though it hurt), she made sure to let him know it WASN'T okay.
The story does come to a satisfying conclusion, with questions answered. Plus an enjoyable Epilogue.
Nice artwork on the eBook cover.
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book and this is my honest opinion of it. .
