Rowe Prince is a lying liar who windmills into my life in full color, claiming to be Sterling Chase, a quirky, eccentric billionaire… and founder of the company I created.
Two can play at the lying game, though, and I’m not about to let some burrito-delivering, floppy-haired virgin from Indiana best me at a game I was born to play.
So I do him one better and pretend to be Sterling Chase’s new assistant. I’ll teach him a lesson that will hopefully wind us both up in bed… with nothing but the truth between us.
But it turns out his shameless lies are enchanting… unintentionally hilarious… and make it all too easy to forget the truth…
Until I learn that this cutie’s intent is to defraud the company I’ve spent years building. I have to choose: risk the company or say goodbye to the man I’m falling for. A guy who just might be…
The Prince of Lies
Title: Prince of Lies
Author: Lucy Lennox
Genre: MM Romance
Tropes: Billionaire/Mistaken Identity
Release Date: February 14, 2023
Isn’t it great when a book surprises you? It just doesn’t happen as much anymore. Am I a cynic? Perhaps, but fortunately Lucy took this one and gave me a surprise.
Reading the blurb, all about people that lie…well, it didn’t strike me as a book that I was going to be gangbusters for…but of course, it’s Lucy Lennox, so I should not have worried. This was a laugh out loud, sweet and low angst story. Worth a re-read for sure.
The banter between the two MC’s was so much fun, as they met via lies, and Rowe just kept telling them, and getting himself further into his outrageous stories. It does take a bit to get into the story and the relationship between the MC’s, but once it happens, it’s just gangbusters.
Rowe is so darn cute, trying to lie and then lie on top of his lies, but is super awkward (you know, for a billionaire). Bash, meanwhile, despite all his money, is sweet and caring, for Rowe, as well as all his friends, and wants to make a positive mark on the world.
Definitely a fun read, lots of laughs, some sizzling chemistry and a satisfying conclusion to the issues they were dealing with.
4.5 pieces of eye candy (that extra 1/2 for the surprises!) 🙂
Lucy Lennox is a USA Today bestselling author and winner of the A.C. Katt Gay Debut Novel Award.
After enjoying creative writing as a child, Lucy didn’t write her first novel until she was over 40 years old. Her debut novel, Borrowing Blue, was published in the autumn of 2016. Lucy has an English Literature degree from Vanderbilt University, but that doesn’t hold a candle to the years and years of staying up all night reading tantalizing novels on her own. She has three children, plays tennis, and hates folding laundry. While her husband is no shmoopy romance hero, he is very good at math, cooks a mean lasagne, has gorgeous eyes, looks hot in his business clothes, and makes her laugh every single day. She writes gay romance with heart, humor, and heat!
