Lying to Meet You is the debut book for Anna Garner, but as Libby Mercer she has written a few, such as Unmasking Maya (my personal favorite) and The Karmic Connection.
Chloe’s friends think it's time for Chloe to find a boyfriend. They think she has been single far too long, but Chloe is too busy for a relationship. She has been busy building her fashion design career and opening her boutique. But it has been two years, and it would be nice to share her life with someone special. Now, that she is almost thirty, picking up guys isn’t as easy as it used to be. Chloe comes up with a theory that guys are attracted to girls who are already in a relationship. She runs her theory by her lifetime friend Ethan. He feels the same way about women, so they come up with a plan to have a fake relationship to see if they attract any would be lovers.
Chloe is asked to be a judge on a new reality TV show called American Dream. She quickly becomes smitten by another one of the judges, William Shannon. While Ethan has set his eyes on a co-worker named Lila. In the mean time, for appearance sake, Ethan and Chloe spend a lot of time together "dating" and fall into a cozy relationship.
I wasn't sure about Chloe's relationship with Ethan. I didn't know where it was going to go. I thought maybe they would fall in love while fake dating, but their was no obvious spark between them, just an easy comfortableness. They had been friends for so long. But, the sparks between William and Chloe were definitely flying, and Lila seemed to be interested in Ethan too! This experiment might just work ...or will it all come crashing down on them?
I like Chloe’s spunk! She’s not about to let another shoplifter get away with stealing from her store again! No, Chloe bolts out the door after the thief, chases her down and tackles her! Yay!
Lying to Meet You is a humorous (I found myself laughing out loud a few times!), sexy, fun story!
