SOME GIRLS LIE (OUTBACK HEAT #4) BY AMY ANDREWS
Release Date: November 10, 2015
Local pub owner Jemima Jane Ericson is living a lie. She’s been in love with her best friend Ethan since forever. But he fell in love with another woman, married her, and despite their tempestuous relationship and decade old divorce, JJ knows Ethan’s heart is still down for the count. And friendship is better than nothing, right?
Single dad and Jumbuck Springs chief of police, Ethan Weston, hits the pub the night his ex-wife remarries and announces she wants custody of their daughter. When he wakes the next morning to find himself in JJ’s bed he’s mortified that they’d crossed a line they should never have crossed. Until JJ’s abusive ex, Shane, shows up at her door and Ethan claims he and JJ are engaged to protect her.
Both are stunned by the unravelling of their normally sane lives but suddenly it makes sense – JJ gets a deterrent and Ethan gets the respectability of a wife for any custody claims. But when JJ’s life is threatened, Ethan is forced to confront feelings that may just run much deeper than convenience…
REVIEW: SOME GIRLS LIE (OUTBACK HEAT #4) BY AMY ANDREWS
My Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
Ethan and J.J.'s story is the latest in the Outback Heat Series. The singe marks have barely healed from the from their first attempts at love. Bad choices, dangerous situations and secret infatuations lead these two friends into uncharted territory. What I liked about this story is that although afraid to take a chance on love, both were willing to do whatever necessary to help out a friend. Perhaps the problem had never been love but the people that they chose to give their hearts to. J.J. and Ethan were magic together. Although I was not as into this book as the other three within the series I did like the chemistry between the two main characters and found the story a well rounded read. I received an ARC of Some Girls Lie in exchange for an honest review.
