Author: Leanna Harrow
Review Rating: Five Stars
Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs
Genre: Erotica Contemporary/Heat level (HOT)
Hot! Hot! Burning Up!
Maggie West has an unhappy past with men. They abused, molested, raped, lied and deserted her. The thing she found the
most offensive though was lying. She had decided to give up on men forever.
However; she decided to try an online dating service. It could be safe and she knew all men were liars anyway. She responded to this handsome blonde and got a response. She knew he had to be a beautiful liar because all men were liars. His response was very interesting and he asked for a webcam but he couldn’t show himself because his laptop was in the shop. She knew he was lying so she broke it off and swore to never speak to him again.
Later, she felt guilty and decided that she was unfair and everyone deserves a second chance. She told him she was sorry but he had to never tell her another lie. He agreed and he wasn’t a blonde but not a bad looking fellow.
Things progressed and before she knew it they were having all kinds of steamy sex all the time online.
She decided she was in love and had to meet him overseas and have some real time hands on physical steamy sex.
Maggie tells her family she is going to have a vacation and leaves to continue her torrid affair.
I will not tell you what happens but it is very different than you would expect. I suggest.. no…I totally recommend that you run don’t walk to buy this book. It has some serious issues it addresses and some very hot steamy physical bits. I found myself laughing at the way the heroine laughs at herself and her own personality.
It is a definite sexy jaunt.
I gave it Five Stars out of Five. Just a word of warning to the readers. Turn the AC up and put the fan on you and get a large glass of ice tea before you settle down to read this book.

I started reading `A beautiful liar’ late at night, after my kids and husband went to bed, knowing very well that I needed to get up early in the morning. What a mistake that was! I didn’t want to put it down. I wanted to keep reading.
I saw so much of me in 46 year old, Maggie West. It was almost as though Leanna Harrow wrote about my life. No! I’m not telling you which parts. (I’m grinning very cheekily here, right now.) There were a lot of internal thoughts and questions in Maggie’s mind which many middle aged women, and perhaps even younger, would relate to. Negative thoughts of self image and confidence. Something we all, at one point or another, battle.
The story is about a woman who seems tough and unbreakable on the outside while all along, on the inside she is very fragile. She yearns to be loved and treasured and because of what she has been through in her life, she is big on honesty. Actually HUGE! Which is why she does what she does in the end. (Which I still can’t believe she did.)
Although she loves her children and grandchildren immensely, she is looking to fill the void in her life. That’s when she meets a man online and the fun begins.
There were a couple of scenes which surprised me. One was at the airport in Rome, where the initial meeting in person with the man who she spent months having an online affair with, did not turn out the way I expected it to. And I was very surprised at the ending when Maggie found out the truth about Amir. She did the complete opposite of what I would’ve done in her situation. It totally surprised me. I found myself thinking…No! She did not just do that! Even though I understood why she did.
I loved the way Leanna kept her chapters short, some of them were only a couple pages long. And some parts got me so heated that my face felt hot and my reading glasses fogged up. I’ve read a few erotic novels over the years and cringed, but this wasn’t the case with `A beautiful liar’. It all flowed smoothly, was easy to read and I wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend it to others. If I had to rate it out of 5, I’d give it 4.8. That’s .2 short of a perfect score because I still can’t believe, that Maggie did what she did in the end. (Ha-ha) I can’t wait to read more of Leanna’s work.
A beautiful Liar is a hot,steamy story about Maggie and all her failed relationships. She finally finds someone she wants to love and trust. He is keeping a huge secret from Maggie. Will her Love for this Beautiful Liar overcome it all? Read it and find out!!
5.0 out of 5 stars whew!, June 10, 2013
This was hot and steamy with a heat rating of about 9 and let me tell you I was so disappointed because I want to know what happens next! I sweated through every single page waiting to see what would happen and was shocked in the end. WOW doesn’t even come close to my feelings about this book. I literally had to scrape my jaw up off the floor when it was over. Well first I had to convince myself that my Kindle App was not malfunctioning that it really was the end of the book , then I scraped my jaw off the floor. I rated this a 5 out of 5.
The main character in A Beautiful Liar is one that I imagine a lot of people can connect with. Being single yet trying to find someone in this day and age a lot of people go to the internet. But the reality is, some of the people are liars.
I really enjoyed how Leanna was able to put a “real life” feel on this story. Maggie’s character was very well written, the attention to details were well done as well. I do have the say the sex parts of this book, were so well done that it was just wow!
At the end of this book, I was upset with Maggie but so proud of her as well! I can’t wait to read more of her story!
4.0 out of 5 stars If you like 50 Shades of Grey you’re sure to love this book, May 14, 2013
In this book you meet Maggie.. Poor girl seems to have the worst luck ever with guys. I mean really 3 failed marriages countless wrong relationships and four kids to show for it. Unlike most storie, Maggie isn’t the young naiive girl looking for love like in most books. I’d place her in her early to mid forties. This in itself is a bit refreshing since the author has drifted from the norm that all main characters need to need to be young, beautiful and rebellious.
The is a flaw in Maggie’s reasoning concerning the beautiful liar… If he was lying to her before, what made her think everything he said to her after wasn’t just more lies? The possiblility that the beautiful liar never once crossed Maggie’s mind after she’d had him promise to tell her nothing but the truth.
The storyline was an interesting one.. Though for as intelligent as Maggie claimed to be she couldn’t grasp the importance of the one lie the beautiful liar told her and in the end what did her being stubborn get her?
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who loves erotica.. As many of you know, I’m not a big fan of the genre. This book had entirely too much sex in it for my liking..but the actual storyline for how little of it there is, was a beautiful tale.
I give this book 4 of 5 paws

I was given an advance copy in exchange for a fair and unbiased review. Maggie West is a tough woman who doesn’t know her own value. She gives endlessly until there’s nothing left. When she discovers a “catfish” online, she decides to have a little fun. This story is not only fun and sexy, it’s real and enthralling! It’s highly recommended it and I cannot wait for the rest of the series to see how “Maggie” handles the rest of the story.
