The Lying Game by Sara Jane Woodley: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Getting trapped in a rundown motel with a grumpy stranger wasn’t how this night was supposed to end, but at least I’ll never have to see him again. Until he becomes my new roommate…

When a dating disaster leaves me heartbroken, muddy, and stranded on the side of the road in the pouring rain, the last thing I expect is for an impossibly hot (and impossibly grouchy) man to offer me a ride home.

I say yes. Because this day can’t get any worse, right?


One flooded highway, a surprise bed-sharing incident, and an impromptu lying game later, I’m still not home. And now, I can’t help but be intrigued by the mysterious big-city man who’s visiting my tiny town on the Washington coast.

But I know better than anyone that a guy like Lachlan Chase won’t stay in Cascade Point for long. I need to stop thinking about him—and how his arms felt around me that night—and stay far, far away.

I thought it would be easy… until I’m forced to move in with him.

As Lachlan and I spend more time together, the more he surprises me. He’s sweet. Funny. Thoughtful. 
Hot. And though we’re polar opposites, the sizzling chemistry between us is undeniable.

But can two strangers-turned-roommates ever really fall in love when their relationship started with a game of lies?

The Lying Game is a sweet grumpy/sunshine, roommates romcom filled with banter and tension, sizzling chemistry without any explicit content, a cast of characters to make you laugh out loud, and an HEA that will give you ALL the feels.

Sara Jane Woodley is a Sweet Romance author who is obsessed with Happily Ever Afters!

Inspired by the mountains, Sara Jane writes love stories set in the beautiful nature she hikes, bikes and skis in. Her clean romance books always feature sassy, strong female heroines and fun-filled, playful relationships.

This was such a cute read! Right from the start, I absolutely adored Lucy and Lachlan. I always love a good grump... and as the story starts, Lachlan fits that description very well. So much so that it gets him into a little hot water at work and he's forced to take a mandatory vacation. Still, as we get to know him... we see that there's a lot more to him than that... and really, he's a big softie. Lucy certainly helps bring it out in him! These two had great chemistry and really balanced each other out wonderfully. 
There were so many moments that kept me smiling throughout... be it the banter or the romance. I couldn't help but enjoy them together! 

I also found myself falling in love with this cute little town. It definitely had its quirks, but I find myself wanting to spend more time there. This is the first book in the series, so I'm excited to see what will happen next. 

The Lying Game is a closed-door romance with kisses only and no language.
