But steady and predictable Thom, suddenly doesn’t seem so steady and predictable when their condo explodes and she’s kidnapped by a couple of crazies claiming that Thom isn’t who he says he is.
Thom is having a hellish week. Not only is he hunting a double agent, but his fiancé dumped him, and thanks to his undercover life, she’s been kidnapped.
Turns out Thom is Operative Thom and he’s got more than a few secrets to share with Betty if he’s going to keep her alive. With both their lives on the line, their lackluster connection is suddenly replaced by an intense one. But in his line of work, feelings aren’t wanted or desired. Because feelings can be a lethal distraction.

  • Wow! Just, Wow!

    By Doingthisforcoinsssssdzzzzz
    Thom and Betty—their names are quite common but their story is just the opposite. They were engaged but Betty was, literally, on the threshold of leaving him when the house explodes. Thus begins this edge of your seat, fast paced romance, as Betty discovers her ex-fiancé is not what he claims to be and Thom has to fight not only to keep her safe, but to win back her love.
  • Loved Betty and Thom

    4.5 stars for - Lies - by Kylie Scott. This is a complete standalone with so much potential for more and if I’m being totally honest I am not above begging Kylie to keep writing about the other/supporting characters in this book. I rarely have the time or inclination to read a book from cover to cover in one day but that is exactly what happened with this story and I was captivated from the first few chapters all the way through to the end and wanted more long after the final words were read. I can’t recommend this story highly enough - do yourself a favor a pick up Lies as soon as you can! Betty has decided her fiancé is not the man for her but while she is packing up her car to leave her plans literally blow up in her face. Betty is thrown head first into a world she never knew existed and quite frankly would rather not be a part of but the man she thought was boring and safe turns out to be keeping quite a few secrets. Getting kidnapped was not part of her plan and she can't seem to wrap her head around all that she's learned but she and Thom need to figure things out sooner rather than later if they're going to make it out alive.

  • WOW – this might be the best cross on a romance and action/suspense book I’ve ever read!

    By Samantha B. Sokol
    WOW – this might be the best cross on a romance and action/suspense book I’ve ever read! Right through the end of the book, Kylie had me guessing and going through a whole range of emotions and feelings while also shocking and surprising me throughout. Betty has been dating Thom for a year and while things aren’t terrible, they aren’t great either and it prompts her to leave him. While secretly moving her things out, there is an explosion, and soon we find out bits and pieces of who Thom really is. With Betty having no clue, she feels more betrayed than before by Thom, who continues to dig himself into a bigger hole the more he answers her questions. What surprised me though is how throughout the book and the situations they are faced with, they end up reconnecting and her feelings grow stronger than they ever did! I loved that the romance line ran concurrent with the suspense of trying to find out who was trying to kill everyone. It made for the most enjoyable read and I couldn’t put the book down. I loved this book so much especially since is surprised me as I went in with no expectations. I can’t wait to see where/if she takes this style/series further – I’d totally read! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

  • Action Packed!

    By shellyburger73
    Kylie has done it again and wrote another spectacular book! I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when I started, but I was pleasantly surprised! Grabbed me from the first page and kept me until the last page. This book is very action packed! I don’t think there was a page that didn’t have something going on. Betty leaves Thom. Betty disappears. Thom finds Betty. Thom is not who she thought he was. You’re intrigued now, I bet? Lies was awesome and you definitely need to pick this one up!
