Review: Dirty Exes (Liars, Inc. #1) by Rachel Van Dyken


Print Length: 296 pages
Publisher: Skyscape (June 5, 2018)

From Goodreads.com: Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?
Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.
Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.
Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for?

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

THIS BOOK. For those of you who follow me and read my review of Co-Ed, I'm sure you were expecting this review to be somewhat the same. But you guys. THIS BOOK is what I expected when I heard Wingmen Inc (even though the only connection in this story is between Blaire and her brother Ian). This had all of the makings of a Rachel van Dyken book. It had humor, it had angst, but most importantly it had its moments of humanity. In fact some of my favorite moments were these characters dealing with that pesky detail of who defines what is right and wrong?

These characters had depth. They had a past and a present. A reason for acting (and reacting) the way that they did. And they did it all while showcasing the kind of real human emotion that makes a reader invested in the story. Would anyone find their happily ever after? How will everyone react when the truth comes to light? 

This was a very satisfying story on all accounts, and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book! Did the women of Dirty Exes Inc finally cross a line they can't come back from?  I definitely think this will appeal to those who enjoy a good romantic comedy. 

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
