Review: Cheater (Curious Liaisons #1) by Rachel Van Dyken
Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.
But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.
Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn’t become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women.
Now Avery’s lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it’s definitely not because he’s falling in love…
Not my cup of tea.
I really wanted to like this book, since I usually love Rachel’s books (The Matchmaker’s Replacement is one of my favorite reads), but unfortunately this one just wasn’t for me. Avery was childish and annoying at times, while Thorn was unrealistic. I couldn’t relate to the characters and stopped reading at 40%.
However, that won’t keep me from reading other novels by the author in the future!
